Okay yet another month has passed too quickly. Will 2017 ever slow down?
March was busy as heck, especially considering I didn’t start the month in Glasgow. I woke up on the 1st of March really early to travel to Aberdeen with my family for Rachel’s university interview. I the spent the next day with Jordanne, and then the weekend was spent socialising between drinks in the flat, a friend’s 21st birthday party, and then I hosted a murder mystery night on the Sunday! Now that was a fun night, with an awful lot of cooking. The following week saw me have lunch with Jordanne and the little guy, more drinks in the flat with friends (and a very drunk emotional night), a trip to the union to watch rugby, and a day of blogging. After all that, we had a friend come visit from the states so we had a group reunion on the Tuesday night for steaks and a bit of fun, followed by Rachel arriving over on the Wednesday. She had another interview on the Thursday so we travelled to Paisley, before flying home that night. The next day we were off to Lanzarote! You can read all about that here. Before long, we were headed back to the UK – Rachel to Belfast, and me to Glasgow. I then had a test on the 21st, dinner with Jordanne on the 23rd, and then on the 29th I travelled down to Southampton for Mary’s 21st birthday.
So now that we’re into April, I’m off for a few weeks of the month for Easter! Well, I say off. I have exams to study for, and a lot of family time. Not a great combination to be honest. But we’re going to work through it. Exams start officially on the 24th April so I’ll be travelling to Glasgow again on the 19th. Also need to start viewing flats and organising me moving out of this flat. So much to do!
Last month, I set the goals below. How do you think I got on?
- Read one book.
Well actually I read 3! The brilliance of a weekend away in the sun means that you can spend a while reading. I read The Twelfth Day Of July, Where She Went and Melancholy Mind.
- Save some money.
Well I didn’t exactly do too well here. There was the murder mystery night, meals out, my mini-break… However, I didn’t waste money on coffee, I didn’t do any online shopping, and I saved a heck of a lot of money simply by taking part in our Lent challenge within the flat!
- Post at least once a week on here.
This one went really well. I actually managed to stick to my original planned schedule of Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday! Four posts a week isn’t too bad considering I’m at uni 5 days a week.
So can we count that as 2 and a half out of three? This month I’ve got a few more goals lined up so let’s take a look at them:
- Revise for at least 2 hours a day.
- Read one book
- Post once a week here.
- Put more effort into my Instagram.
So there we have the goals for this month. What are your goals for April?
