Life Lately

Friday, July 7, 2017

I know this is so cliche but I can't believe it is already July! Seriously, this year is flying by so fast and I'm not ready! It needs to slow down ASAP. June was a crazy month overall and it had a lot of ups and downs.

The best part of June was spending a weekend in LA. I don't live that far from LA, about 1.5 hours (depending on traffic), but I really don't get there too often. I'm just not a fan of the crazy traffic. At the beginning of the month, I braved that traffic to head to LA to see Darren Criss in his new band Computer Games. If you haven't heard their music, I really recommend it. The concert was absolutely amazing and you just might be able to spot me in their next music video! Other than the concert, I explored a little around Melrose Pl/Ave and Rodeo Drive before heading back home. It was a great time! I finally got to check out Alfred Tea Room and try their pink drink, browse the Serena and Lily showroom, and have lunch at the new Ladurée in Beverly Hills.

Other than that trip, I haven't done much else besides school. Yes, I'm in school this summer so I can finish up grad school in September instead of December! This has definitely been a drag, but I just need to keep reminding myself it'll be worth it. I can definitely tell that I'm so ready to finally be finished with school because I'm really losing my focus and motivation. That is something I'm really trying to work on for these last few months. I currently have a 3.85 GPA and I do not want that to slip now right at the end!

To finish up this little life update, I'm going to share a few goals that I have for the month of July. I rarely ever make monthly goals, but since this is the half way mark for the year, I thought I should!

1. Get my school motivation back! Like I said above, I really need to get this in check. I haven't really let my schoolwork slip, but I am just feeling so over it and I want to be excited about my program again!

2. Go to sleep earlier! My sleep habits lately have been a complete joke! I just can't get to sleep until super late and it's awful. I need to develop a night time routine and get to sleep early.

3. Update my blog more often! As much as I really love having a blog, I just don't put as much into it as I would really like to. I want to start putting more effort into writing posts and developing meaningful content to post here.

4. Hit 2,000 Instagram followers! I actually recently hit 1,000 followers and I could not believe it! I was so excited. My goal is to reach 2,000 by the end of the year. I know this is going to be hard (that algorithm!) but I know I can get there if I put in the work!

5. Stop spending money on unnecessary things! I'm the worst when it comes to spending money responsibly. If I see something I like, I'll buy it. It's a serious problem so for the month of July, I'm not buying anything that isn't a necessity! I don't think I'll keep this up for the rest of the year, but I'm starting with a month and seeing how it goes! Wish me luck!

What are you looking forward to in the second half of the year? Do you have any goals? Let me know in the comments!

  1. We definitely have some similar goals for the rest of the year! I'm nowhere near as good as you on Instagram - I want to get better about posting and also increase followers. I also want to work on improving my blog and going to sleep earlier! Your pictures are so gorgeous btw!
