Monthly {2016} June Goals

Happy 1st day of June everyone, this month has long been awaited for because it’s a month full of fun and wonder. I am still shocked how fast May came and went by but I am still glad it is June because 3 important events are happening: first weekend in June I am in Hamburg, Germany for a youth get together I am so excited as its been a while. Third weekend in June I am heading to Paris for the first time, I am too excited its surreal. I will also be going to Disney whilst there and can not wait. Then final important event is its MOH’s birthday this month and though not sure what we are doing I am still excited to celebrate it.

Now that I have shared my plans for the month here is a look at my goals from last month, before I share my June goals.

{2016} MAY GOALS

  • Car Theory Test – For the last 6 years I have been singing the same song ‘I will do the driving test soon’ then I would day-dream about all the places I will visit within the UK when I start to drive but never even got to do the ‘PRACTICAL’ test as I was always nervous. This time I have booked my theory test and will be doing some practical lessons with my dad. FAILED – I booked the test and went to do it but I didn’t revise and failed by 3 points, I am so mad at myself for not preparing and just going in blind.
  • Me time – As I have shared above, I did not really have much of ‘me time’ in April but since May does not have any travels booked (pending) I am hoping to use that time I would normally be away for myself. PASSED – Apart from the end of May bank holiday weekend I succeeded in having some me time.
  • Schedule friends in – My uni bestie and I have agreed to have a spa day this month when I return from Korea, I am hoping to meet up with my other friends as well instead of just keeping to myself in my apartment. FAILED – When I returned from Korea I scheduled some me time and before I knew it the month was done and I hadn’t had chance to even call my friends.
  • Plan forward – I am starting my postgraduate course this September but I am always going away in September so I need to start planning and getting myself ready for school again. FAILED – Not done much planning since I am still traveling a lot and trying to balance my life.
  • Improve the blog as a whole – Now I know this is too broad but that is my aim, I want to touch so many areas of my blog but I will work on that quietly behind the scenes and figure things out. Verdict is out on this.


It’s taken me a while to think about my June goals and what I want to accomplish or put in place. For me summer as much as I love it is a most difficult time to accomplish goals because all I want to do is seat back and relax and not do anything else.

  • Car Theory Test – Since I didn’t pass my test last month, I want to re-try but this time prepare fully and then going to take the test.
  • Blog improvements – This one is an ongoing goal, I want to put in more effort into my blog but I need remember this is my hobby which I work really hard for and should not overtake my take job.
  • Holiday – Most people know I am participating in the #take12trips travel challenge and though I have not planned anything for August I am hoping to book Dublin for July and hopefully Budapest too
  • Schedule posts – I have been slacking lately and I need to wake up and change the scenery here. I want to use my free weekend this month and schedule blogs for the month.

I have always said on this blog that I set goals for me, to remind myself of things I want to accomplish. Some of these things I share here on the blog and others I keep close to the chest until all is certain. Whether I accomplish them in that month is irrelevant, my motto is ‘if at first you don’t succeed, move it to the next month and try again‘.
