September Goals

Hello September!

Today marks the official beginning of our school year and I am SO excited! Growing up I was always that nerdy kid who loved the first day of school. For me learning has always been a ton of fun! Plus, new school years meant new, crisp, clean school supplies.

...I'm a nerd. I know it. I've accepted it. I embrace it.

Anywhoo, this school year has me particularly excited because it's my first as an educator rather than a student. I can't wait to see what my kids learn and what I learn from them. It's going to be a good year :)

An ending of August means a new set of monthly goals and aspirations. But before I talk about what I hope to accomplish this month, let's have a look at last month's goals, shall we?

August Goals Recap:

1. Complete the Chaplet a Day Challenge via The Living Person Got to learn some knew chaplets and keep in touch with friends as accountability partners. Excited to try out TLP's next challenge!

2. Find an apartment Done and LOVE it! I still have things to bring from home this weekend, but my new little home is coming together quite nicely.

3. Move in to said apartment and have at least one space settled in. Ok, so it's the bathroom, but it's organized, put together and squeaky clean :)


I think this might be the first month where I accomplished everything on my list. Mind you, it was a shorter list than normal, but hey, I check them all off! I just hope September's goals go just as well.

This month I hope to:

1. Settle into another room - My apartment isn't huge, but I still have a lot of settling in to do. Hopefully by the end of September I'll have it feeling even more cozy.

2. Start a savings account - Hooray for no longer being a student. Time to be fiscally responsible.

3. Go out to eat with a friend - Living in a brand new city is rough. Hopefully this goal will push me out of my introverted comfort zone and force me to meet new people and make friends.

4. Write an outfit post - It's been ages and I actually have a dress code for work which is inspiring me to dress nicely and get creative with my wardrobe.

5. Set the February Trip for work - Part of my job involves service trips with students and it turns out our February break trip isn't scheduled yet. That's exciting because I can try something new, but also scary because typically these trips are scheduled a year in advance. I'm praying that it comes together beautifully.

What about you, friend? Any fun hopes for September?

  1. Congrats on hitting your goals! When I move to a new place, I always get the bathroom done first for two reasons. It's small, and I have Crohn's Disease, so I spend a lot of quality time there. ;)

  2. Congratulations on crushing your August Goals, good luck with your first year as a educator.

  3. Congrats on the successes :D I am also in the market for doing some outfit posts, but I've done a grand total of like 3 in my entire life so we'll see how that works out. I'm sure your trip will fall into place, things like that usually do ^_^

  4. Hi Sarah! I really enjoyed reading your post. :) It sounds like you are in a very exciting season of life right now. Prayers that you find a fantastic group of people to explore your new city!

  5. Hi from another nerd / introvert! You really crushed it last month and you will do that in September as well, I'm sure! Getting out of that comfort zone is hard, but what works for me is that I start with getting to know people one at a time. Groups can be a horror :) Have a great weekend!

  6. Wow! A fully finished list! I am in awe! Pretty exciting things are happening for you right now, so I send you many well wishes, tons of fun moments, and so much happiness! :)
