SO excited for The Lumineers new album coming out.
My one regret is not seeing them at Mountain Jam a few years ago….
I’m a few days late on this but mainly because I was really sick this week with a bad cold and on top of that had to study for a test- which I aced with a 90 by the way!
I love to start out a new month thinking positively about what I have achieved that month and what I’d like to achieve in this fresh and new one.
March was a good month! I feel like I blinked and it was gone. Here are some things I am especially proud of…
Keeping up with my gym goal [that I made for the new year- who says all resolutions aren’t kept?!]
I have increased to going twice a week which has been huge for me in helping my anxiety, too! I am also finally starting to see results and getting stronger. I enjoy putting my headphones in and zoning out for the time that I am there. If you find the right music too, it can really get you going! For me right now, it has been mainly old school Eminem, 50 cent, and Paramore’s Riot album [the best.]
I am doing really well in my Introduction to Veterinary Technology class. Currently have an 88! [Starting over post]
I was a little worried about how I would do juggling school, full time work, blogging, the gym, relationships, life, etc. But I am extremely proud of myself that I have done well so far- it’s only one class, but we have tests and homework- which has been an adjustment for me because I was a sociology major in college and we hardly ever had tests- it was always papers.
Now that I have kind of gotten my studying style down a little better and know how my teacher tests, things are looking up. It also makes me think that maybe I am capable of going all the way and getting my Vet Tech degree.
Speaking of school, I have already registered for my next class.
This summer I will be taking an online Medical Terminology class. Well actually, it starts in May, a few weeks after my intro final.
I suspect a lot of studying by the lake will commence…
But I am excited because I’m getting into the actual veterinary medical information now- whereas the introduction class is mainly covering topics like OSHA, human resources, euthanasia and grief, things like that.
I finished Downton Abbey.
Okay, not sure if this is a triumph or more….a reason to cry.
But nonetheless, I have been watching this show for months. My mom even put her watching on hold so I could catch up with her and my Shameless watching has been put on hold too- so now I can continue with that, yay!
But I am going to sincerely miss Violet’s witty banter[one of my fave characters], Edith and Mary’s hatred for each other, the handsome Downton men, and the stunning fashion of the era. Among many other things…. sigh.
Moment of silence for Downton.
This month I reached 125 followers via email, 120 WordPress followers, 200 Facebook likes and 125 Instagram followers.
The followers mean more to me than the social media likes, and I know numbers aren’t everything, but I have noticed my followers increasing even if my daily views are not fantastic. That means a lot to me in the blogging world because you can have a daily viewer who won’t come back, but a follower means they are here to stay! [Hopefully 🙂 ]
This may be a tiny win in the blogger world, but meaningful to me.
Can’t wait to see what April brings….
I couldn’t be happier that we have reached April, even though in upstate NY currently we are experiencing a little winter for the next few days. [We are forecasted snow tonight….can we not. ]
Finish out my class with a bang.
I have my final in May- so much of April is going to be wrapping up and finishing up the last homework assignments and tests.
Reach 200 blog followers, 250 Facebook likes, and 150 Instagram followers.
I also need to generally increase my blog outreach efforts as well to achieve this one- time for some linky parties and the like. Any suggestions?!
Start volunteering as the SPCA.
I have my volunteer orientation next weekend!
I was technically a volunteer last year too, but for some reason never actually went… more effort will happen this year with that!
This is always a goal but doesn’t necessarily happen…
I’ve become more serious thinking about it as of late, though. My mama is generous enough to put aside the rent money I give her every month into savings for me.
I think part of it is to get me out of the house, but I’m still glad she does it. Thanks ma! ; )
Do you have any March triumphs and April goals? I would love to hear about them!
