Is this the end? Goals and a sad June…

Last month I decided that every first of the month I would share my goals and things I NEED/want to accomplish. So how did the month of June go? Judging by the title not so well. I went into June thinking it was going to be great! I was having so many ideas, posting, working on projects etc… When I have my mind set on something I become focused on it, sometimes too focused that I put other things off to the side that I should really be working on. Often times I seem like this very positive influence, and that I can smile and be positive through all the negative things going on in my life or around me- issa trick! Don’t be fooled, on the inside i’m usually breaking down and freaking out trying to get me life and emotions together. I think many of us are like that? We don’t want to seem weak, we don’t want to feel vulnerable. Especially if you’ve given power to other people over your life for most of your life and let people walk all over you, if you let every situation bring you to your lowest point… That was me. It’s still me and i’m still working on it but things are getting a lot better. I’ve been working hard on my anxiety/depression, being more positive, standing up for myself and my beliefs, to just keep going but i’m still missing something. I’m still lacking something. Structure maybe? I feel like this month is going to be a shift for me… I just can’t really put my finger on what kind of shift yet. But I do know that I have been doing A LOT of thinking and reconsidering, that I feel my mind is pretty sure and set on some part of that “shift” or change. A change is coming. Something is ending. But when there is an end there is also a new beginning. 

Before I go any further into that. Let’s check out June’s sad goals:

This Month I NEED To:

✔️Pay bills (Yes and it’s time to pay them again. Yay..)

🌻Work on improving ways to Earn/Manage/Save money- I’ll call this mission EMS. Like “M’s” lol (EMS is not going so well, actually I forgot about it. Not that we need to manage better, just that I even made this whole thing)

🌻Get organized in general (Lacking so much organization right now; which is also why things will be ending soon)

🌻Continue consistent writing and posting (I’m always writing but I did take a well needed week off in June, maybe I needed longer?)

🌻Read more (Actually I read less)

🌻Go out more (Actually I went out less)

🌻Eat/Exercise better (Nope. That’s all I can say)

🌻Stay positive (It’s been a roller coaster)

This Month I WANT To:

✔️Change To Do List

✔️Change a few other things on my blog (Changed to do list, feature images, header etc… and now ready for an even bigger change after all of that work I put in)

🌻Work on EMS (We already found out this didn’t happen)

✔️Reach 500 WP followers (Some good news finally showing up, I reached 600)

🌻Reach 250 IG followers (Not quite but close, I currently have 219 but people follow and unfollow every day so.. ya know.)

🌻Reach 6,000 Twitter followers (nope, haven’t even been using it for blogging but currently at 5,927)

🌻150 WP posts (didn’t reach this goal in June due to my break but this post will be #149)

🌻Improve filming skills (haven’t been recording much lately)

🌻Go out more (I’ve had opportunities, but just haven’t been in the mood)

🌻Go swimming (nope)

🌻More DIY projects (nope)

🌻Cook/Eat healthier (nope)

🌻Get a planner/Start a bullet journal (started some type of “pre-planner” but only kept with it for like the first week)

✔️Stationary haul (I shared a few notebooks and folders if that counts)

✔️Summer clothing haul (shared a few summer pick ups, not really a haul but it can still count I guess)

🌻Finish reading Ruined (no, haven’t had any interest in reading that book lately)

🌻Go to Barnes & Noble and Books A Million (nope)

✔️Cool exciting summer posts June-July  (kind of?)

🌻Go to the dentist (nope)

✔️Hair journey post (towards the end of June or beginning of July) (Yes, did a whole week series!)

✔️Start a dream journal and be consistent (When I remember a dream I have been writing them down)

✔️Find new bloggers, and new music! (Yes I have)

🌻Write more/write my own summer jam😮 (have worked on it; not complete)

🌻Stay positive (again, it’s been a roller coaster)

Can you see how sad June was? Hope it was a lot better for you all! I have news that I need to share with you all but i’m not sure when. Maybe today, maybe not. But it’s in regards to this big change, shift, and ending. I just really need to gather my thoughts together at this point and figure out exactly what and how I want to go about things…

Stay tuned because as you know, in June I had my 500 follower Q&A Game and 5 winners to be featured on my blog. The first place winner is Maggie and she has worked on a great guest post that I can’t wait to share! Please bare with me during this next period of time because an end is coming but I don’t know where exactly time is taking me at this moment, nothing is set in stone. I appreciate everyone who has been a constant support I just ask that you keep that same amount of support with this change. Thank you for reading and I’ll be back shortly.

Today’s To Do🌻

Well well well. What do we have here? I think it’s been a week or a little longer since my last TTD post. I did mention that you can expect them between Monday-Friday with the exception of days that I don’t have much to do. I haven’t been doing many chores (besides today of course) because I’ve been sick and dealing with a lot of other things. I talked a bit about it in my diary entry last night so if you want you can go read that if you haven’t already. I also haven’t done any vacuuming lately because our vacuum unfortunately is broken now. Hopefully we’ll be getting a new one this weekend because Izabelle is getting messy with her litter and eating area. Sweeping litter off of carpet is no fun. I thought about putting paper or something down but she’ll probably tear that up. The guinea pigs sure do, I think they have newspaper ripping parties.

Anyways, here is my list for the day…

✔️Feed/Clean after pets

✔️Wash dishes

✔️Work on project

✔️Watch The Real

✔️Updates 

✔️Words of the week

✔️Brainstorming for next week 

🌻Work on some video edits for the pets channel 

✔️Ideas for my summer hit

🌻Grocery shopping (finishing this weekend)

✔️Buy new comforter (the air gets the apartment freezing especially at night, we only have a few blankets at the moment)

✔️Get pets food

✔️Work on Fun Friday (Remember that my Q&A has been moved to Sunday)

🌻Work on SSS

🌻Read/Comment/Respond

✔️Post to social media

✔️Watch the sunset (way too cloudy to see much tonight)

I don’t know how much more I’ll be able to complete tonight as it’s already 7:30 but I’m going to try to knock out as much as I can without overwhelming myself. I’ll talk to you all very soon!💖☺️

Today’s To Do🌻

Long day friends, I’ve been busy working on myself (mainly myself, doing a lot of thinking) and my blog. Still making changes and improvements as you read this.

The past two days I haven’t had much of a list to post because my boyfriend has been trying to help out around the house more. He contributes most of the mess honestly so it’s only right. He has washed dishes half of the week, cleaned the bathroom and living room.

👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽☺️

I’m glad I had a few days to relax. I needed it. I’ve been so stressed and moody lately with everything going on. 

Since he washed dishes the past two days, I don’t have any to wash today or tomorrow because we also got paper plates.

So what did I do today? And what’s left to do?

✔️Feed/Clean after pets

✔️Work on TW Project task #3

✔️Blog changes and improvements (still working on some images and organizing my categories) How do you like the new header?


✔️Post to Instagram 

✔️Watch The Real

✔️Light workout 

🌻R/C/R (Read Comnent Respond)

✔️Finish working on Fun Friday

✔️Plan for SSS (Short Story Saturday)

✔️Look for words for next week

✔️Watch the sunset

I’ve got an hour before the sun sets, lets see what I can finish before then.💗

*Update: Only RCR is left with 5 minutes left before sunset*

Today’s To Do✨

It’s 5 PM here and I’m almost finished with my list for the day. I feel really good about that! I decided to use one of my notebooks for a temporary planer until I can get one or until I make my bullet journal.

I made my temporary planner last night, doing only the first 2 pages (blog planning for this week) but so far it has helped so much so I’ll continue it. Maybe I’ll show pictures when I have more pages filled? You can check out previews on my Instagram. Nothing fancy, but still cute. I also decided that I would be doing To Do lists only Mon-Friday. Sometimes I may skip a day if I don’t have much tasks but that’s when you can expect to see them. Anyway let’s get to the list…

Today’s To Do:

✔️Feed/clean after pets

✔️Work on awards/tasks *still a couple left to do*

✔️Post to Instagram 

✔️Words of the week

✔️RCR (Read/Comment/Respond) *almost finished for the day*

✔️Plan & brainstorm (use notebook planner)

✔️Vacuum

✔️Light workout (push-ups, wall sits, stretching, meditation etc)

✔️Work on About Me section

✔️Work on Typewriter Project task #3 (write down ideas)

✔️Video editing

✔️Watch sunset

And that’s all folks☺️

I’m about to eat a quick snack before dinner and then finish the last of my tasks. What have you accomplished today?
