August has been a pretty exciting month for me. I talked more about all the changes and fun over in my August Favorites post, but I'll just go over the highs and lows here. The low was me being anxious about starting student teaching and whether or not I can handle being a "real" adult. The high was definitely having my best friend over! We haven't spent time together since June because we live three hours apart so it was great to spend a few days with her, especially around my birthday!
As always, we'll take a look at how I did with my August goals before getting on to my goals for this month.
1. Have a great birthday. ☑ Along with my best friend coming up for a few days, I got to go to a local festival for my birthday. It's really popular, but I've never gone before. So for my birthday my family and I went there. I also got a few good presents from the fam and got to enjoy some Blizzards with them.
2. Adjust to working full time. ☑ I've gotten used to waking up at 5:30 am, to the commute (audio books really do help!), to being totally alert all day, and speaking and thinking in 2 different languages (I'm teaching Spanish).
3. Blog 2-3 times a week. This is a kind of ☑. I took a week off blogging for my first full week of school, so kind of, not really. It was nice to not worry about it though since that week was exhausting. I'm a little unsure if I'll be able to post twice a week, but I think it's doable.
4. Read at least one book. ❌ Nope! I did really good at the beginning of August but once school hit I let reading totally slide.
Get a good score on my first project.With student teaching I have four big projects to complete. The first one is due at the beginning of this month. I'm not sure how quickly I will get the score back, so I might not be able to let you know if this happens or not by the next goals post.
Spend time with friends.I have to go back to my college this month for an all day student teaching meeting, so the unofficial plan is to stay with my one friend who still lives there and meet up with at least one or two more friends. We are all living in different areas, but this is kind of a central location for all of us so I'm hoping this will work!
Post at least twice a week on Instagram.I'm not sure if you noticed, but I barely posted on Instagram this month! It kills me a bit inside when I realize how long it's been between posts there. I'm going to have to stock up on some good Insta photos to share on the weekends from now on!
Those are the goals for September. Let me know what your big plans for the month are in the comments!
