I started school last week and my first week was a non-stop type of week. I think I'm finally getting settled in my schedule and know how I will make time for all of the areas of my life. I wanted to share what's going on in my life and my goals/plans for different areas in my life. And since I'm back in classes and getting used to taking notes everyday, this post is written in "note format" - hope you can follow it!
// SCHOOL //
aiming for a 4.0 semester so that I will give my very best to all five of my courses, getting back into having a class schedule because summertime spoiled me
my planner will be my best friend and key to keeping me organized, especially during really busy weeks
getting a head start on all of my classes by writing down my upcoming assignments and doing some reading about the class topics before we jump into the material during class
crazy to think that this time next year I'll either be starting work on my PhD or looking for my first job! Glad I don't have to worry about that…yet :)
// MY BLOG //
some great giveaways coming up & happening now!
rebranding, shifting the direction of my blog soon
once I reach my goal of one million views, the rebranding will take place, can't wait! I recently added the page tracker at the bottom of the page so my readers can keep track with me
more organization posts, style posts, food and healthy eating posts, Atlanta-related posts, and posts about my life (like this one).
// MY SMALL BUSINESS & PROJECTS //
my mind spins and I have 100 things I want to do then I have to bring it back…I can't do it all…especially not right now
so I'm focusing on my company, VKV Communications LLC
summer was busy with several blog and website design projects, ten logo design projects, and some really fun photo sessions
very excited about an upcoming wedding rehearsal and bridal photo session - weddings are the best
branching out from working with people I know to doing work for people referred by people I know and even some random people who stumble upon my work on the internet
reaching out to other local non-profits over the summer has also been awesome
so grateful and excited my book for college students is selling so well and helping college students around America - that's why I wrote it!
I have another book project stirring in my head but I haven't had enough time or energy to focus on sitting down and typing it all out, but I'm planning to dedicate a few hours each week to this
// HEALTH & FITNESS //
changing my eating habits and incorporating healthy foods and fitness into my everyday lifestyle was one of the best things I did last year
posting recipes and tips helps me be accountable for what I eat + it's helping others
forcing myself to sign up for a unique fitness class for the month of September…maybe Yogalates?
my Pinterest "Healthy Eating" board is so yummy looking
// PERSONAL LIFE //
more exploring, taking advantage of being a student, spending time with family & friends, travel
several family members passed away this summer and it's always a reminder of how short and valuable life truly is
try to keep my personal life off of my blog for the most part because I believe in keeping some things to your close friends and to yourself
grateful for happiness and peace and I hope that continues
How are you dealing with the upcoming season change and all of the chaos that comes along with it?
