Lifestyle | Bring on August!

It’s August and the year is officially almost over! I can’t believe 2015 has flown by so fast. I think the summer is the point where things speed up and you really realize that the year is practically over. If that even makes sense? I don’t know, in my head that made a lot more sense. I feel like once you pass June, you’re in the clear for the end of the year. It’s crazy. I feel like I’m still in school and I’m not. I’m not going back to classes in twenty-one days, I’ll be working my job and that’s crazy to me. Some part of me is going to miss the school work but now I have marketing work that takes up that time and is enjoyable to me. 

How am I going to spend August? That’s a good question. I realized that once a new month comes along, I should welcome it with open arms and a new start. A new day is a new start and a new month is like a complete new start. I guess that makes more sense to me. I’m going to set goals and try to do me. July was the first month in my apartment and it was challenging – I had to learn to live on my own and not see someone each day, it’s almost like being isolated but I like that isolation. I just wish I had a roommate to talk to at times when I’m up late at night and eating ice cream.

August Goals

I’m going to let things go – I can’t hold on to anger and things that make me upset because it holds me back. It brings me to a point where I’m not happy and I just can’t have that. I want to be happy and positive. I refuse to let anyone else bring me down and hurt me. I can’t let anyone control my happy except for me. 

Eating clean and dedication to working out. This is actually something I’m good at and not good at. I’m great at eating clean but working out, I’m so lazy. I enjoy being toned and wearing crop tops though so I have to hit the gym at times. I don’t do it for anyone but myself. There’s something sexy about muscles to me. I just feel strong and brave with some awesome arms and legs. 

Don’t hold back. I put on this front that I’m very nonchalant about everything and that nothing gets to me. I think that’s why people don’t know how to read me. It sucks for my close friends and I think I’m at the part where I’m just going to lay back and just be me. Vulnerable. Emotional – Happy. Sad. Angry. I’m twenty-three and I’m an adult, I’m allowed to do whatever I want as long as it’s not breaking the law. I’m going to surprise a lot of people but that’s life.

Budget. I think I’m going to turn into one of those girls who make a excel spreadsheet and budgets out her months. I’m in my own place and paying for everything myself, I want a new car, and my youngest sister starts driving soon which means I’m off my parents’ insurance. Plus my student loan payments start up soon, it’s like a pile of everything that I have to get under control so I can understand it all and never have to worry. 

Power off. How many of us say that we are going to stay off social media and technology and just live? I’m sure so many people have said this, I never had but I feel like there’s moments when I should. There’s moments when I need to just enjoy the peace and serenity, I need to enjoy life outside of Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat. I guess live life as an adult, maybe? Who knows, I’m just going to enjoy my technology free day or hours. 

That’s all I can think of for now but I think I’m going to do monthly goals and weekly goals. I’m definitely in need of a new planner so that’s something I’m about to buy and put to great use. Enjoy your day loves!!
