August 2016 Goals

Okay so I'm pretty sure that August is going to be the craziest month out of this whole year.  (I actually have no idea since we still have four months left of the year but with my small, very limited vision I'm saying that so I really do not know.) But a lot of things might be happening in August (such as moving.  that's definitely not a big deal.) and so I wanted to make a list of goals.  

I know I have a summer bucket list that I'm working on (I actually completely forgot about it and I haven't looked at it since I posted it.  #fail), but I decided to make a smaller list of goals for one month and either a) combine all my results for both lists in one post or b) do both separate or c) classically not do either of them because you know...school.  Or some other excuse like that I'll have to figure it out later.  But I wanted to have a list for this month and just to see at the end of it what all I did and where God brought me to from the beginning of the month.  SO. This should be fun.
also could y'all give me your input? is this picture ^^ too big for your screen or is it about right? THANK YOU GUYS 


1.
So this was on my official summer bucket list, but I'm really hoping it becomes a reality this month.  Ha, if it doesn't my friend is going to be so freaking mad so I'm guessing it will.  ^_^ (SHE'S LIKE ONE OF THOSE HUMANS WHO LIKES TO GET IT DONE.)

2.
Same as the first, this one was also on my official list but I wasn't quite sure how it was going to happen, since my local Trader Joe's is like an hour away.  BUT on Instagram someone mentioned to me that McDonald's carries macarons?? SO I want to check that out for sure!

3.
SO GUYS.  Let's sit down and chat.  August is a great month, full of exciting opportunities and moments.  The weather's warm, the sun's out, you get to eat ice cream!! Spending time with friends and family, enjoying summer to the fullest -- that's August.  Now, there comes another part to this wonderful month of August.  You may or may not have heard me rant about it before, and it's this ever-lovely thing called school.  Yeah, it's fantastic.
*screeches to a halt* 
GUYS SCHOOL STARTS THIS MONTH FOR ME.  OKAY.  THAT IS NOT COOL.  BUT. I WILL SURVIVE.  AND WITH GOD'S HELP I'M PRAYING TO THRIVE.  IT'S NERVE-WRACKING, BUT IT'S COMFORTING THAT MY ALL-POWERFUL FATHER IS WITH ME, KK?  
SEND HELP PLZ.

4.
Haha, okay so this one sounds really cliche (generally speaking) but I really want to try to live it out this month.  I have no idea what God is going to do and I'm really excited to see what He's going to do this month.  We're planning on moving (!!) and I'm praying that some other stuff falls into place.  I want to trust God more and learn to live a life that's full of purpose and meaning for Him.  And whatever happens this month, I want to be able to say at the end that God is still good and being in the center of His will is truly what makes life worth the living. ♥

||||

Alright y'all so that's it! Those are my goals for this month, and I know there's not a lot but considering how good I do with goals/lists um right.  Let's hope for the best.

I believe that August is going to be a really good month, and not just if things go my way.  God is on the throne, school is just me + lots of little (not little) homo sapiens who really don't care and basically I'm going there to get an education so end of story.  (Quote: The giant in front of you is never as big as the God in you.) Besides that, I really want to finish the summer strong and take every moment as it comes.

|||

Oooh and guys, I'm going to be a part of an up-and-coming blogger online magazine called Paper Comets, which is part of a bigger community called Freckled Minds.  SUPER EXCITING STUFF, MAN!!! If you want to learn more about all of that good stuff, click HERE.  

SO LET'S TALK!! What are your goals for this month? What are your thoughts as we're heading into August? CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT 2k16 is 3/4 OVER?????? Just let that sink it. Whaat?? I just can't.  Also, yay or nay for school? (IF YOU SAY YAY I'LL BE HAPPY but I'm saying nay so I get that too.) 

Also, get ready for a ton of fun posts this month! I have a few planned out that I'm super excited about.  Wooooot. ^_^

So I hope you guys all have a wonderful day and stay positive because life is precious and the most incredible gift♥
- autumn

Plus, MY AP CLASSES START THEN AND CAN I JUST SAY THAT ALL OF THE AP TEACHERS I'VE HAD IN THE PAST SO THEY EXPECT GOOD THINGS FROM ME AND I JUST CANNOT FUNCTION FOR THE FIRST MONTH OF SCHOOL SO PLEASE LEAVE A MESSAGE AFTER THE BEEP.

    *ahem* Sorry for my rant there. XD Hopefully you have fun doing the photoshoot! I've actually helped set up and monitor a photoshoot, and they're super super fun.

  12. WHAT NO 2016 CAN'T BE OVER IT JUST GOSH DARN STARTED WHAT.

    One of my goals this month is to finish the story I started for Camp Nano, partly because I know some people who will kill me if I don't finish the beautiful mess of a thing.

    And ooohh you've just gotta try macarons, yusss, even if you can't find them anywhere you can always try making them too.

    P.S You have a very epic blog

      Yeah, I thought about that, but I've heard they're really finicky to make too so I don't want to mess them up but idk. It'd probably be healthier if I made them at home ^_^

      THANK YOU SO MUCH *blushes* <3

  14. The picture IS big, but it lines up nicely and looks all professional. xD So I say it's awesome.

    I'VE NEVER HAD MACAROONS BEFORE. I THINK THIS IS SOMETHING I NEED TO CHANGE??
    M...moving. o.O Gah. That's definitely a big change. *hugs* I'll be praying for that! Can I ask which state you're moving to? You can just ignore it if you can't say -- I totally understand. (I'm just always hopeful that it will be close to me. xD)

    SCHOOL. Gah, it starts this next month for me as well. I'm trying to be positive about it but I am actually dying at the mere thought of it. x.x

    YOU CAN DO THE THING, AUTUMN! <3

  16. This post was the sweetest :) I love that you're making a list of August goals; I have been doing this offline but may have to post about it on my blog, because you inspired me! It's so crazy to think that the year is 3/4 over....I'm not sure how that happened, but life just seems to be going at a breakneck pace this year. D: Nevertheless, there's still time to make the most of the days! There was a quote that I really loved that said "Don't count the days, but make the days count." That's how I want to live.

    Also, since when does McDonald's make macarons? Say what say what??

      I KNOW RIGHT?? I need to test this theory out and see if they do.

  17. I think the pic looks so totally professional the the perfect size, (just take in note my computer screen is abnormally big, like what).

    SCHOOL. I have mixed feelings about this thing. oh, well. It doesn't look too bad. I just think the thing of when school comes summer leave. GAH. NO.

  20. The graphic is a little big, but I also like it big to.

    The year always go fast, but around August when I really want Christmas to come and the winner to come it really slows down for me.

    I'm ready to start school. I want to be busy and I think I need to start learning again. I kinda missing learning something everyday. So school is a yay! :)

    And I really like these goals! They're cool! Hope you can get them too! I haven't looked at my summer bucket list either, but I think I got most of it in my mind. Maybe not though. Let me go and check it out. ;P

      AHAHAHA YES. I can't wait for Christmas and I do love autumn/fall (WHY ELSE DID I PICK MY ONLINE NAME AUTUMN.), but summer is the best and I love warm weather.
      EEEEP I LOVE YOUR ATTITUDE. And honestly, I think it will be. My schedule is definitely busier than before, and with God on my side, I don't need to be afraid.
      Hey thanks!! Yes, I know what you mean. ;)

  21. I like your positive attitude towards life, and trust in God. It's encouraging to read, and makes me happy. I hope August is wonderful for you, and I hate to be one of those annoying grown-ups, but seriously, enjoy school while you can. Because after school, people expect you to be an adult. Haha, I guess it's just a matter learning and growing through whatever season of life we're in. :)

    Anyway, if I didn't already mention - this was great to read, and I'm looking forward to those fun posts you have planned. :)

  22. I think the picture is just right! I actually noticed it's nice size before even reading your request for input about it! And oohhhh yyeeeessss...school...I am not looking forward to it. But it starts in a couple weeks. Yay. I am excited that I'll be graduating at the end, but mleh. It's going to be so hard before I get to the graduating part. I'm trusting that God will carry me through. Because I sure don't have the strength or motivation to on my own! Whoo.

  23. These are awesome goals! And I totally feel you about school haha I'm feeling the exact same way. And macarons are amazing definitely try one if you get the chance :).
