February Goals | Monthly Wrap-Up

First month of 2017 gone!?!?! HOW EVEN. Y'all, is this even real.  How does the time go by so fast?

 But I know that I've always felt this way other years too.  The first few months of the year seem to drag so much but they actually do go by pretty fast, so I GUESS WE'RE AT FEBRUARY ALREADY.  Yay! But seriously though, 2017 is going soo fast.  It's crazy. *sigh*

January went by so fast, honestly.  It feels like I just blinked and BOOM the month is almost over.  So I'm not promising that I got everything that I should have got done off of my list, but let's just see how this month fared.  *cringes* (Also never mind the fact that I checked this list like...twice this whole month.)


Take more pictures.  HA.  No  This one definitely did not happen in January, sad to say.  I don't know -- I guess with all the other things I was doing I just forgot.  THOUGH I did take pictures of chocolate chip cookies I made soooo.  I mean, yay for cookies but nay for photography.


Overall, this one was a fail, and I NEED TO WORK ON IT.'

 Get the basics of ice skating.   OH YEAH.  I'd say I got the "basics" down, and now I want to learn how to be all graceful on the ice like an actual figure skater.  BUT that will take a while haha, so right now my main goal is to just IMPROVE.  I want to really nail the basics even more, and then learn even more.  Because, to be honest, I'm still like desperately praying every time I go around the rink...so yeah.  xD But I think the craziest thing is that I know the rink so well now.  The people who work there and everything.  It's weird sometimes.  ^_^ 

Finish my novel.  WELL WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT. IT'S NOT CROSSED OFF.

Stay on top of school.  I'll give this one a half, because I didn't do terribly bad, but at the same time I think I could have done better.  I want this to be a constant progression, and so I'm not extremely disappointed or anything.

FINISH MY ROOM. THANK YOU JESUS YES.  This happened.  FINALLY.  And honestly, you would not believe how excited I am. This is probably the best thing that happened in January. (OH YES, complete side note, but probably the actual best thing that happened in January was getting my braces off.  WOOT!!!!)  We actually only got my room done this past weekend, but IT IS DONE. I haven't really done anything to it, so the walls are still bare, but I've moved into it and I'm super excited about that.  Maybe February I'll get a room tour up, who knows?

Take care of myself.  Um...yeah? I don't know, but I'm going to keep this one on the list.  I did, but in some ways this month I was so incredibly busy that I don't know think I worked on this one.  So much happened in January, and I was so busy trying to keep up, do this, do that. For instance, I've tried to stop being on the phone before bed (*cough* I should be so good at this because I even did a post on it but umm NO), and trying to go to bed earlier, and little things like that, but it could always be improved.

Read some books.   I'm actually so happy right now that I put "some" instead of a certain number of books to read, because I can cross it off! xD Surprisingly, I did actually read a few books this month (like 4 or 5) this month, so I'm pretty happy with that, considering that it was a crazy month.

What happens when I have absolutely no idea what pictures to put in this post. NICE ROAD. 


+ Peace of mind Yeah.  This is the biggest one right now.  I feel like in January I was all over the place, and now that I look back on it, I can't even really say "Oh, I did this!" or "oh, I really worked on THIS."  So, with God's help, I want February to be a month where I just unwind a little bit, but not too much, and focus on the important things.  AND GET 'EM DONE.  I want to improve at the things I can already do, and work on the things which I need to work on.  Focus less on the unimportant things;  look ahead to God and what matters.  Work hard.

+ Finish my novel Hahaha okay I had this on last month's too, but I think that if I start focusing maybe I'll be able to? I don't know though, I'll need to write a lot more than I'm doing right now though XD MAYBE.  WE SHALL SEE.

+ Live where I am happily. If you read my last post, you might get where I'm coning at for this.  Life is crazy, and so short, but I want to live where I am right now with all I have.  For Jesus.  Because He gives true peace.  And that's what I need..

Work on all of my "hobbies".  Like I said somewhere up there ^^^^  I want constant progression, even if it's not perfection.  For me, that's really hard because I am such  a PERFECTIONIST.  And somehow I want to have everything mastered and tucked away under my belt, but I don't realize that the journey to getting there takes TIME and EFFORT and wait did I say effort?  Like, okay, I love writing.  Then I seriously need to set aside time each day and just WRITE.  I love skating, so then I need to make the effort to DO IT.  That's the only way to ever..."get good" at something.  SO YEAH. I definitely want to start working towards my goals this month.

+++ 

So that's it for this post!! I only have four goals for February, but they all cover a lot, so HERE'S TO THAT.  Also, HAPPY FEBRUARY TO YOU ALL!!! I was so happy when I realized that February 1st is on a Wednesday, which is when I post.  LIKE HOW PERFECT IS THAT?!?! Are you all excited for February? I know I am.  Do you have any big plans? What's your favorite month? I always feel like February is a super slow month....but, you can never tell what will happen =) What's happening in your life?

  8. January was WAY too fast!!!! :P I feel like I got nothing done, but at the same time it felt like a whole year of busyness. *collapses* Unfortunately for me, I don't think February is going to slow down until my book is off to betas (*panics*)

    Skating definitely takes time. The more you're on the ice, the more comfortable you get (coming from the person who hasn't been on them in over a year XD)

    Happy February!

    1. IT WAS!!! I don't know how it went by so fast. DUDE THAT IS EXACTLY HOW I FEEL. The whole month was a whirlwind of activity, but I don't know exactly what I GOT DONE. xD THAT IS SO EXCITING, AUBREY! So stoked for you :)

      OOOOH yes thank you for that! I've been learning that...and it's kind of annoying, because I can't be on the ice as much as I'd like (lol hi school), but it definitely takes time to improve.

  16. Months just fly by - well, it feels that way for me because it was holidays last month. :') Congrats on nailing the basics of ice skating! And also, it's pretty amazing that you managed to read 4 or 5 books in a month. I've only read class books so far. Any recommendations? :)
