june small goals



I'm back with another installment of small goals as part of Nicole from Writes Like a Girl's small goals link up! I did a lot of stuff in May, but very little of it was anything I posted in my last monthly goals. Frankly, I underestimated how much brain capacity my travel plans and job hunt would take away from remembering these littler things. I knew I should have picked only 3 tasks but I thought I was up to the challenge. Whoops! Anyway, before we get to this months goals, let me shame myself publicly.

Post a great Disneyworld vlog! I actually did this! I had a beautiful time with my best buds and I am so glad I got to spend that time with them. I didn't capture as much of it as I think I should have in terms of video content but I am fine with that since I only didn't capture it because I was too busy having a great time with them. You can watch the vlog here.

Post 3 blog posts. Well. This is awkward. I set the bar low, but I should have set it lower with my job hunt and not one but two trips out of town!

Make a more solid skincare routine. With all the travel I did-- via plane!-- I really wasn't able to pack, use, and solidify a routine with all the products I want to be a part of my routine. I should have seen this coming, frankly. 

Exercise during commercial breaks. Sometimes I'll do some squats, but with all the shows I watch breaking for the summer, I've not experienced pretty much any commercial breaks in my TV consumption. Honestly, I totally forgot that everything was season finale-ing!

Nail down the Major Arcana. I studied more for my interviews than for my Tarot practice. I can't really fault myself for that. 

So it turns out that I haven't done too badly this month-- I just picked bad goals. I didn't want to make goals about big things like job hunting-- this is a small goals round up after all! I also didn't want to make goals about my travel plans since the travel was scheduled and inevitable and therefore kind of already accomplished. This month I'm going to try to focus better on my small goals, and luckily I'll have much more stability to do so. 

Wear sunscreen more. I'm really diligent about this when I travel since I often go to sunny locations and spend much of the days outside on the street, but I'm not as good with this on an every day level. Generally this isn't too much of a problem since I'm fortunate to have fairly sun-resilient skin but I really should take better care of it and wear sunscreen more regularly at least in the summer months. I just invested in the NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 which will definitely help me up my sunscreen game since it'll just be part of my makeup routine. 

Edit my wardrobe. I'm really excited and nervous about this one. I got into a good place with a lot of my fall/winter wardrobe, but I need to get on top of my spring/summer wardrobe. Moreover, I'm no longer at my rad, super casual job and looking for a new one which might involve a more grown up approach to dressing. Despite previous purges, even now I realize I have a disproportionate amount of t-shirts that I don't wear out. It's good to have clothes for chilling at home or running errands, but I really ought to have fewer of those and more clothes I love wearing while I'm actually being seen! Luckily for me, Nicole's Feel Good, Dress Better workbook is out. I'm so ready!

Read two books. There are two books I'm in the middle of right now-- I love them while I'm reading them, but I'm still not used to making space for books anymore. I'm two years out of school but I haven't scraped that "reading is work" mentality off me. I'm going to try to make the space better because I really love these books! I realize I struggle a bit more when there's not a narrative story so I've gotta be more conscious about making time. I'm still reading a business biography called The Will to Win by Robert Herjavec (my favorite Shark Tank shark) and Her Eternal Moonlight by Steven Savage and Bonnie Walling which is all about the experiences of girls/women in North America whose lives were touched by Sailor Moon. 

Update my about and contact pages. I am really happy with how I re-did my fonts on the site last month (do you love it as much as I do?) and it's really inspiring me to spruce things up a bit! I've gotta update my about and contact pages and I'm really looking forward to it.

That's it for my goals this month! If you're looking for your own goal motivation, check out Nicole's link up and see what other people are trying to get done! You can also check out her rad workbook here if you also need to re-evaluate and change-up your closet. 

What are your goals for the month?
