May goals

A lot was accomplished this month socially and with school- I’m proud!  This whole month is being able to look at the last two years of grad school and see how goals I made in high school are happening now!!  It is an amazing feeling to be able to graduate from grad school and I’m so grateful to be here!  If you have goals that you’ve made for this month or ones you’ve accomplished, feel free to add them to the linkup below- I’d love to read about them 🙂 !

Reviewing goals from April:

  • Read 30 chapters of scriptures, 10 church talks/lessons, and go to the temple once
    I made sure to try to read something everyday, but it was a far cry from a chapter.  I listening to talks while I was getting ready for the day and prepared lessons for my new job in church, working with the young women, and I absolutely love it!
  • Have everything finished for graduation!
    Can I get an amen?  My graduate school portfolio is OVER.  My master’s paper and presentations are OVER.  I’m going to miss grad school, but not especially these parts.
  • Clean the whole house in anticipation of parents visiting
    I see I made very ambitious goals with finals.  Ha…no.
  • Restaurant budget under $80 for the month..because Europe this summer
    We had some great things hit our budget this month that we weren’t expecting.  We didn’t keep our restaurant budget this low, but we kept really low on our budget otherwise so I’m proud!
  • Read 4 books for fun
    I read two.  I’ll include the books I read in next month’s post.
  • Drink only water
    Also, no.

  • I share in your excitement for graduation 🙂
    Also, it’s HARD to drink just water. Have you tried adding lemon or other fruits in yours? I found that it made drinking water more exciting for me 😛

    • Thank you, Patricia! I am so pooped and pumped about graduating all at the same time!! I should totally look into adding fruits and lemon into my water- that is an excellent suggestion!!
