• September 2016 Goals

    Happy September y’all. I can hardly contain my excitment that this month is already here. I have so much planned for this month that I do not know if I will have time to blog. End of August the blog survived on posts previously scheduled and when that run out so did I. Lately blogging has been a struggle, I feel my pending vacation is the medicines that I need to recharge. For September 2016 goals, I have been thinking hard about what I want to achieve this month. The majority of my plans are about my university and the assignments I have do. Before I share the September 2016 goals, let’s review the August 2016 goals.

    September 2016 goals

    August 2016 Goals

    • Book Practical Driving Lessons and Test – As I mentioned above, I have PASSED my driving Theory Test, so I will be booking some lessons and hope to do my test by mid-October 2016. SUCCESS
    • Social media detox – I have not done this in a while and I need to unplug at least one day a week. It’s hard since I spend almost 10+ hours online but I need to cut myself off after work or use one Saturday and not be online for anything. PARTIAL SUCCESS
    • Decluttering: Home and Closet – I aim to declutter my closet every 6 weeks but I forgot to do it since January so I am in need of a good decluttering session. FAILED
    • Allocate some time for Friends – I am so bad at keeping in touch with my friends, I need to make some time this month and just allocate a weekend or two to seeing some of my friends. SUCCESS
    • Post Grad School – I am headed back to university (part-time) this September and I need to allocate some time this month to prepare the documentation and finances ready for September. PARTIAL SUCCESS.

    Not badly done but I could certainly do better, if at first you don’t suceed continue until you do. I will be moving the failed and partial sucess to the next month until I complete them.

    September Goals

    Majority of my goals are geared towards the Post Grad program I will be starting at the end of the month.

    • Social media detox – I need to start small like between finishing work and bed, I should read books and not be online.
    • Decluttering: Home and Closet – 6 weekly decluttering session has been missed again, I need to declutter before my holiday so I know what I need to give and what I need to throw away.
    • Post Grad School – Pre-assignment has been set so I need to harm down and work on it. I need to submit it before the due date
    • Accomodation – I need to find accomodation for the few days I am at uni this month so looking for a nice hotel.
    • Driving Lessons – I need to arrange some more driving lessons and save up for them too.
    • Allocate time for friends – I was overjoyed last month when I was able to meet up with some of my friends, hope to do the same this month.
    • Relax and enjoy me – I think it is important to always allocate some time to yourself outside just sleeping. I am hoping to make some time for me this month

    There are many goals that I have set for myself but for now these are what I am willing to share at this point in time. Happy September everyone and wishing you all the very best.

    Have you set any goals for September? What do you think of my September 2016 goals?

      Well done for the month of August. Like the idea of a social media detox, I might start small like you between diner and bedtime!

        Thanks, I think starting small will be better

      Good luck with the goals. No I haven’t really set personal goals this month.

      You are very wise to try and tune out from social media every now and again. It’s addictive stuff but can take over our lives! I like your goals – they are realistic and useful. Also like how you admit to failing some of your previous goals – good on you, we are all human and it’s important we don’t put too much stress on ourselves!

      • October 25, 2016 / 5:22 am

        Exactly my aim and thanks Hun, I believe if I don’t accomplish some goals this month I can move them to the next month

      I should really make more of an effort for some ‘me’ time. Good goals!

      • October 25, 2016 / 5:21 am

        We all should

      I’m a big goal setter and think it’s the only way to get things done. Just down after a 3 hour decluttering session from the attic – something that’s been needed for years! It’s hard to do everything so if you’re part way successful in your goals, then that’s a win. It’ll be hard to keep up with blogging when back in uni.

        Tell me about it, it’s been a real struggle

      We’ve had a huge declutter over the last few weeks and it’s been a headache but so glad we now have the space.

        Ain’t they just but the peace that comes after is worth it I think

      Oh you are so inspiring! Well done for passing your driving tests and going back to Uni for your post-grad studies. Took a close cousin to University of Reading for her post-grad and dropped her off at her dorm. Must admit was a tiny bit envious! I’m wondering now whether I should aim for a post-grad too?

      • October 25, 2016 / 5:20 am

        Awww thanks so much Hun and if it’s something you want to do give it a shot

    9. September 23, 2016 / 9:07 am

      I think it’s great to set goals. Having a blog is a great place to write and record them too! Hope September ends with success for you!
