Wrapping up August!

Hello everyone! Welcome back to another monthly wrap up! I must say, I just cannot believe how fast this month has gone. It feels like last time I checked it was May 25 and I had just finished school. Now it’s August 31, and I’ve already started 8th grade.

Anyway, this is a August re-cap not a -how fast time flies rant- (although that might be fun) Let’s get started!

-The Goals From Last Month-

I will be writing in red if I failed and green if I succeeded.

  • Write 10,000 words on my novel.Β 
  • Write 15 blog posts. (UGH)
  • Exercise every weekday. (YAY)
  • Take more pictures!
  • Make more art.
  • Pray every day. (I’m sure I did, just not the way I intended too)
  • Save up money again. (I did, then I just spent some of it XD)
  • Read 7 books.

Well, I didn’t do too bad, I guess. So let’s more on to what I did do this month!

-What I Did Do This Month-

  • Started waking up earlier. (5:50 to be exact)
  • Worked really hard on my novel.
  • Was extremely lazy and productive.
  • Didn’t spend too much money.
  • Started using a planner.
  • Started 8th grade.
  • Redesigned my blog!
  • Made macrons.

Isn’t this shirt neat? It has a knit top with a sheer bottom (the floral part) I have another one too, but it’s not available anymore. Also, make sure to grab one while they’re on sale! Click on the pic to take you to the page! πŸ˜€

-Looking Into September-

Freebie Library:


  • Finish writing my novel. (I’m almost there, YES!)
  • Start working on a business project idea.
  • Exercise 6 days a week.
  • Hopefully get something. I can’t say what yet, just something. I’ll tell you if it ends up happening.
  • Go see TobyMac and Hollyn and Crowder in concert!!! (super excited for this one πŸ™‚ )
  • Take a 5 second video clip every day. (this should be easy, if i remember)
  • Keep up with school.
  • Read 5 books, not just magazine’s.
  • Publish 12 blog posts.

Hopefully I can accomplish most of those. Some of them seem really easy, others not so much.

Well guys, I hope you’ve had an awesome month, and I’d love to hear about it in the comments! What are some of your goals for September?

Have a wonderful day!

    Yay, I love monthly wrap-ups! Oh my goodness, you wake up at 5:50?! *gasps* OH MY! XD And think it’s so early to wake up at 6-something occasionally. XD XD Ahh yes, I love Magnolia Journals too! Sadly we’re not subscribed anymore, but hopefully we shall again soon. Also I love the knit and sheer floral top from Old Navy! I wish you success for your goals for September, and I hope you have a marvelous month!

      Thank you so much! Yes, it is tricky, especially at first, but I actually sort of like it now because I go to sleep earlier, and that’s nice because I was having trouble falling asleep at night sometimes, before I started doing this. πŸ˜‰
