If you remember at the beginning of the year, I wrote about my 2017 New Years Resolutions. Since then, I took time at the beginning of each month to hand-pick some of thoose resolutions to focus on throughout the 30-days. January was fair, a few were accomplished, however, February and March fell flat. I think it's mainly because I haven't been managing my time correctly and I don’t remember my goals throughout the month. I have been reading A Girl, Obsessed and Kate La Vie for a few years now and at the beginning of each month, they share the goals they wish to accomplish. I thought, “hey, why not do the same?” It seems like a positive habit to have.
April is my last month of college and with that, I will be completing my freshman year of college(or university if you live in the UK…I think). A lot of these goals will be to start creating habits for the upcoming summer vacation, also, some bits and pieces are school-oriented for my upcoming papers and finals.
A New Business Email
email@example.com has had its run, but I think it is time to upgrade. If I want to see Townhouse Palette as branded business, I should really start taking business-like steps. I cannot afford to create a serious business email through gsuite, but I can use firstname.lastname@example.org. Since Gmail organizes all my emails in sections, my primary box will be used for any business-related emails. I check my email so much due to school that it makes sense because my emails will be in my face. Also, I should update the contact page on the blog, where I want to keep all important information regarding any PR, Sponsor, Advertising, or Business Inquires. That way, no one will bounce around to try to find what they are looking for.
Track My Spending
I am very tight on money at the moment. By tracking my spending I will get to see what I am spending money on, what I should be spending money on, and not be spending money on. #typicalcollegeproblems
Plan my social media
I have been complaining for years that I suck at social media. However, I have been researching more about how to utilize social media for my blog. I have been pinning a lot of social media related pins on Pinterest on my BLOG // Organization + Advice board. If you have time, I would really appreciate it if you follow me on Pinterest.
I have been wanting to journal more often, and with this school year coming to its end, I think this is the perfect opportunity. I think April is the last month for my Bullet Journal, so if I fill it up, I can get a fresh one for the beginning of Summer.
Spend more time outside
This has to do with me spending a lot of time in my room. I feel a bit claustrophobic, not very energetic, and just…bleh. I HATEEE IT! If I can keep myself busy until dinner time, that would be wonderful! Doing all my work outside of my dorm and just relaxing in my room would be the dream. I find my body shuts off at exactly 8:00 PM (20:00), I just get tired, and I do not want to produce quality work. I find that is the best time to throw in the towel.
Open up a shopping section on the blog
I think if I open up a shopping section on the blog of the things I really like and have been using, it would be a great business blog idea. I got the idea from Holly Loves Simple Things, where she recently redid her blog design and added this kind of page.
Create a study schedule for my upcoming finals
I did well on my previous semester finals, so this time, I will like to reflect that hard work on to my upcoming finals. I feel like having a study schedule will help me organize all my finals and take out adequate time to study for them.
Get all As on my finals
Hopefully, I can get an A in most of my classes as well as the final tests. Umm, I am not expecting all As, but I will do my best and I hope that is enough.
