I forgot I was doing monthly goals this year. My last one was back in August and honestly, I can’t be bothered to think back that far or look up what they even were. Things have been a little chaotic lately, which has been a blessing and a curse. A blessing because I’m loving that I’ve been able to do more of my passions outside of work, but a curse in that my mental health has been taking a nose dive due to other things going on in my life. Every time it seems like something good happens, an equally bad (triggering) thing happens at the same time. So, it’s been kind of hard to focus on the good. So, I thought maybe if I returned to setting goals for things I want to accomplish in a month, then revisit at the end of the month… maybe that would help a bit.
July was crazy with moving, so in August I’m hoping to relax… and by that, I mean streaming more. I really enjoy it, so I’m adding additional days to my calendar for streaming. I also built some structure around it, so each day I’m streaming has a relative theme. I’ll get into what that is when I go over the goals for the month.
I’m blogging all month long, every single day I’m going to be writing something new. There isn’t really a theme or anything. Sometimes it might be about books, shows, beauty, or life. It’s really just going to be whatever I’m in the mood to write about that day. And today, I thought I would start off with something personal. As I did something for real, for the first time, and it’s literally the only thing I can think about writing about at the moment. Honestly, I’m not even sure if I should as I feel almost embarrassed talking about it, but it’s a natural thing that happens in life and I don’t know maybe someone out there can relate.
It’s finally here. Moving month! I’m leaving the apartment I’ve been in for the last two years and going to a two-bedroom apartment within the same building that checks off all the boxes. I’m really excited to move in, but at the same time, nervous/stressed because I’m moving. No matter if it’s not a major move, it’s still a change. But I’m going to have sunlight, better outdoor access for Pixie, an area for work/streaming since I do that from home, and other things I’m looking forward to. Granted, it’s happening at the end of the month but still, this month is largely going to be focused on moving.
Another month already?! The year is almost halfway over, and things are starting to open back up. I’m fully vaccinated so yay! This month is going to be crazy to begin with then hopefully things returning to normal around the mid-point of the month. Hopefully, that doesn’t change. I really want things to settle down, so I can get back into a routine and have a sense of time again. Granted, towards the end of the month I’m going to start packing to move in July. But that shouldn’t disrupt too much.
