(Side note: if you have any tips to help a girl stop biting her nails, tweet me! I quit cold-turkey and it's been painful so far!)
I figured instead of just tackling my goals all at once, I would break them down month by month. Although we're two weeks into January, I'm confident I can complete the goals for this month. I figured I would extend it to include my February goals. Instead of 5 goals, I'm sharing ten: 5 per month. Let's get started!
post to Instagram consistently // Ever since I separated my personal account from my blog account on Instagram, I've been forgetting to switch back and forth. Honestly, Instagram should have a feature like Twitter where you can switch accounts really easily, without having to log out and log back in. It's a pain in the butt! But I've been trying my best since I've been on Christmas break to post consistently and grow my following, so I want to continue when I'm back at school and throughout the year. Are you following me?
workout at least three times a week // My sister's wedding is coming up, so obviously I need to make sure I look fantasticcc in my Maid of Honor dress. While working out is supposed to be about physical health and feeling good, I realistically am planning to work my butt off so that my butt looks fabulous! Ya feel me?
stick to a budget // Especially as a senior, money tends to fly out of your hands in college. Between weekly Chipotle visits and the fact that I cannot not buy clothes if I love them, I tend to blow through my budget quicker than I'd like. This year I plan to make responsible financial choices, and that starts with creating and sticking to a budget, and maybe not spending all my cash (or at least reducing the cash I take with me) when I go to the bar.
land a NYFW internship // I was lucky enough to work with a PR firm for NYFW in the Fall and work some of the coolest shows, so I'm determined to do the same this year. I've already applied to various companies and hopefully I'll be able to return to the city for fashion week this year. (Side note: any companies want to send me as blogger coverage? I'll take it!)
fully clean my apartment once a week // I'm talking head to toe. I get my bathroom cleaned once a week, which I am so lucky for, but my room goes through phases of being spotless and then looking like a hurricane blew through it. A friend in a class last semester told me that he does this thing called "Management Monday" where he spends every Monday getting his shit together, and I think I might steal that idea this year. This semester, I don't have class until 3pm on Mondays, so I definitely need to stay motivated and clean up once a week.
read two books in my spare time // Two books doesn't sound like a lot, and it really isn't for me.. but when I'm in school, I barely have time to read my textbooks so finding time to read two books before in my spare time will be a challenge, but it's my perfect escape!
eat healthier (and don't cheat!) // I'm trying my best to get my act together this year, and that starts with eating healthy and actually sticking to it!
make my bed every morning // I hate to say it, but I roll out of bed and don't have time to make it up before I leave for class or work more often than I'd like to admit. In the next two months, I want to make my bed every day before I leave my room for the day.. or at least week days! I can't promise weekends!
finish my grad school applications // I need to commit to them and sit down and write my personal statement and other essays. Due to the nature of the programs I'm applying for, most of my applications require a lot of writing and portfolio work and I need to compile everything and finally submit them. Fingers crossed!
Do you have goals that you break down month-by-month? How do you suggest I complete these?
