September 21st 2020

Hi everyone! I hope you’re hanging in there during the United States sixth month mark for the pandemic. I know it is a strain on our mental health and physical health. Stay strong, and try to stay positive. You’ve got this!


I also wanted to apologize for my lack of blogging the last couple of weeks. I have started a full time job again and doing two classes for college. Trying to balance school, work and free time is proving to be somewhat hard. Once I get a handle on a good schedule, I will be posting more. Thank you for your continued support!

In light of today’s date, here’s a fun song:

August Recap and September Goals

August seems to have flown by for me. One minute I’m setting up my goals and thinking about school, the next minute I’m in school and working full time. Let’s see what goals I have been able to achieve and work on from August. If you’d like to look at them click here.

  • I need to continue to stay more active with my blog. Trying to write or put up a little daily insight.
  • I have been working out almost 3 days a week. I had a pretty good schedule. With work I have to find some time.
  • I am still working on the “28 Day Challenge.”
  • Meal prepping…It’s been kind of working. I need to learn more and become better at it.
  • I am becoming more organized and using my journal more.
  • I am still staying positive and having a happier attitude. Some day’s are harder than others.

Now, while I’m still growing and achieving these goals, here are some goals I added for September:

  • Learn to meal prep more effectively.
  • Stop procrastinating with homework and things that I have to get done. One example would be my online training for work.
  • Get back into a Yoga routine.
  • Find a skin care routine that works for me, and stick to it.

What are some of your goals for September? Are you currently in the middle of working on some goals? Let me know down in the comment section below. I would love to hear them!

August 24th 2020

Today I started my last semester before I earn my associates degree. I started this small journey many years ago, before the military. I have two classes to complete then I will be on my way towards a Bachelors degree. I am more than excited to finish up these classes. It is a little strange because they are both online, but there are pros and cons to this. I think the pros would be, not having to drive to campus and pay for parking. The cons would definitely be, not having that student/teacher interaction and help with material. I know this is a learning curve for professors, students and the families. Don’t lose hope, just stay focused and positive!
