February goals

Well, know that you know how January went, it's time to talk about February! I do want to make a quick note for all of you wondering why I'm so excited about these goals/habits. For my whole life, I've had a plan. I knew what classes I wanted to take every year in high school … Continue reading February goals


Checking in on my January goals

What? A post on a Monday? Spoiler alert: three posts a week will be on my February list of goals/habits. But, it ain't* February yet and you have no idea how I did on my January habits. So, if you're just joining us, in January I posted about how instead of "New Year's Resolutions," I … Continue reading Checking in on my January goals

Please exclude me from your narrative of how I’m supposed to live my life.

For the first 21 years of my life, I had quantifiable goals. I wanted to work for the AP bureau in Kabul. I wanted to become a national merit scholar. I wanted to graduate with degrees in journalism and political science... The list goes on-and-on. However, in year 22, it feels like those goals went … Continue reading Please exclude me from your narrative of how I’m supposed to live my life.

My 2017 will influence my 2018…

2017 was bullshit. Let's just start with that. Sure I wrote my post about things I learned, which are all true, but the year as a whole was bullshit. The things I learned and accomplished were really hard for me. I cut the large majority of people out of my life, which was and is … Continue reading My 2017 will influence my 2018…

March Goals

So, I've taken a little break from goals because, well, quite honestly because I wasn't meeting them. I basically just wrote them down because it seemed like a good thing to do and then didn't really do anything about it. But here I am, back again, ready to set some goals that I can actually … Continue reading March Goals

My three words

  My cousin introduced me to this thing where she thinks of three words that she wants to be and then everything she does follows those three words. So if her three words were bougie, smart and detached (which they TOTALLY aren't) everything from the way she treats people to what she wears should be … Continue reading My three words

Another year of blogging

Hello! Happy Holidays and almost New Year! While I plan on doing a wrap up of things that happened to me/I did in 2016, I also want to do a wrap up for my year in the blog. I had some issues in the early part of the year getting fired up to write because … Continue reading Another year of blogging

December Goals

Happy December! Welcome to the month of snow and Santa Claus and the celebration of Jesus's birth and a whole lot of great things! I am looking forward to my first December in a land where it should snow (I mean I guess Lubbock counts, but it snows way more here). So, either way, here … Continue reading December Goals

November Goals Update

It's the end of November, so I guess that means it's time for an update on the goals I had this month! Honestly? My goals this month went terribly. I think I just tried to go too big. A lot of these need to be worked on a little at a time and that's really … Continue reading November Goals Update

November Goals

Happy November! So, I have been working on my 101 in 1001 goals, which is great. I've been checking stuff off, but not in an organized fashion. It's been more like, "Woah, good job me, I didn't even realize I did that," than a specific effort to check off a certain goal. I know I … Continue reading November Goals
