My last month of ‘freedom’ before returning to university for final year, I want t make the most of September. With that in mind I’ve set myself up with a couple of little challenges. Mini resolutions if you will. There’s lots more bits I want to do. I want to bake more, I want to get out for a few runs (though this involves buying some more running tights and Sports Direct is not somewhere I wish to visit!), I want to throw myself into final year and go to all lectures. But here’s my realistic September goals;
Shrink my Wardrobe
I’m starting to feel overwhelmed by the sheer amount of clothes I have, and it’s also fair to say that very few of them actually fit me properly! My plan over the next few weeks is to work out what I have, what fits, what should be taken to university and what I can get rid of. It’s not going to be an easy task!
Read Over Second Year Notes
I took a particularly nasty module in Second Year, of which I have Part II to do in my final year. A 13-month placement means I can’t remember a word of it, so my plan is to definitely go over the content. Ideally I’d like to do an hour a day to make sure I understand the first part thoroughly and get a bit of a headstart on the new bits. What can I say, I’m a mathlete!
Go for Brunch
I’ve lived in London for nearly two months and I still haven’t been to brunch. I keep making my own pancakes instead, good for my purse, not so much my brunch craving. It’s my goal to have one lazy breakfast before we leave, so recommendations people!
Set up a Budgeting Spreadsheet
Whilst I’ve never been bad at budgeting, I’ve never ran out of money, I’ve not really been spectacular at it! I get by, I manage, but I’m sure I could work better with a decent spreadsheet. It’s strange, I used Excel so much at work, I have an Excel tool that bulk renames blog photos, but do I build spreadsheets for anything else?! Nada. Oops…
Phone Internet Addiction
I’m finally admitting it, I have a problem. My phone is constantly glued to my hand, I’m always checking my emails, my Bloglovin feed, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook…I don’t even regularly use my own accounts, but I love snooping on others. Well enough is enough, it’s got to stop. I’ve made good headway already by banning my phone apart from dedicated hours whilst in Devon, and I’m turning WiFi off as much as possible when I’m in the flat.
And that’s it, my main goals for the month. It goes without saying that I want to enjoy the time I have left with W before we head off back to our respective universities, I don’t even need to say that I want to kick off the final year living with my girls with a blast. All in all, I’m pretty buzzing for a fab September!
What do you want to achieve in the next month? Do you set yourself mini goals throughout the year, or just continue working towards year’s resolutions?
