So it is October (as of 34 minutes ago) and I am excited! What does October mean? Besides my mom’s birthday, my best friend’s birthday and Halloween, October is just a good month. I don’t know why, but I always enjoy October lol. Looking forward to what random adventures happen and I will definitely document everything for you guys.
First and foremost my readers are increasing! Thanks everyone for reading. I know I am not the most interesting individual, but I just want to show everyone that it is normal to have struggles and ups and downs as a young adult. Times will be good and times will be bad, but being young is all about paving the way for your future and it can be successfully done with a little drive and ambition. My life is nowhere near perfect, but I think at the rate I’m going I’ll be set at 35 (fingers crossed). Wish me luck!
So back to it being October haha. Next weekend is the Tailgate at my alma mater. I want to have more fun than I have ever had! I love seeing familiar faces and representing my organization. This will be exciting. Then I have spontaneously decided to take a trip to San Diego with my Soror (sorority sister) for Halloween. I haven’t been to San Diego since I was younger, so this trip will be EPIC. I am happy that I have been doing funner things and stepping out of my comfort zone. I went to the east coast last month, I just purchased tickets to see Ariana Grande next year and now I am going to San Diego. This may not seem like much to most, but for me someone who barely leaves the Bay Area and barely attends concerts I am ecstatic.
What are my goals for October? I have a lot of them, and that’s okay. Usually only a third of my monthly goals get accomplished, but there is progress slowly, but surely. First and foremost, this month I want to eat better and become more healthy. I know that I always says this, but lately I have been seeing the affects of diabetes more closely and I really do not want to be diagnosed a diabetic. A lot of my family members are diabetic ,so I know I will get it if I do not stop eating so many sweets and junk food. Junk food is a major part of my life. I love cookies, brownies and candy so much, so cutting back will definitely be a challenge.
I also want to stop being so emotional. That is another hard one. The month of September was so emotional for no reason. I reflect on the things that upset me and took up space in my head and now it’s like why? I can be extremely irrational and that is the trait I hate most about myself. So being more rational and less emotional is definitely my number one priority.
Next goal for October is to network as much as I can and start new projects. This month I started writing for a website. I am very excited, because I need to be published in multiple places so I can show samples when applying for jobs. This month I hope and pray that I can delve deeper into event planning. Just thinking about planning events makes my heart beat. I love it! Being behind the scenes and seeing an event unfold before your eyes… so rewarding. If anyone knows any contacts who plan events PLEASE connect me with them! I am serious about planning events, but I just don’t know where to start.
Now that everyone knows my feelings and goals for this month, create your own! You have three more months until 2017… make a difference and create a platform for next year 🙂 #GoHardOrGoHome.
