June 2017 Goals

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog! Today’s post is going to be my goals for this month, June! I honestly cannot believe that it is already halfway through 2017, it feels like I just moved out of New York a month ago. This is the month I’m going to get my butt into gear, I swear! I’ve got a bunch of plans for the month that I’m pretty excited for, so let’s just get into it!

To start off, for literally months I’ve been dying to go visit the Boston Aquarium since we live like an hour and twenty minutes away from it, and this month I am going! After having to cancel our original plan to go during Memorial Day weekend, I am more pumped than ever to go see the fish this month and possibly sea turtles. Ever since watching Finding Dory during a weekend where I was sick, all I have wanted to do is go to the aquarium, and we’re going!

I’ve also found that I’m much more comfortable behind the wheel lately, and I think this is the month I truly get serious about getting my driving license. New Hampshire just doesn’t have the public transport that New York does, so getting my license is less of a formality and more of a requirement around these parts. I’ll be signing up for my lessons this month and putting myself on the fast track to getting my license!

I’m also hoping to read (and complete) three whole books this month, which can actually be a lot when you work full time and don’t have as much downtime as you did in your student days. I’ve been acquiring some interesting reads from Goodwill and I’m pumping to get back into my old favorite hobby.

This month marks the start of tanning season for me and I am determined to lose my vampire-esque skin tone. I work in a preschool, so I’m outside two times a day, and there is no reason for me to stay pale this summer!

This month also marks the first day of summer and I literally cannot wait! I love being by the poolside or at the beach, summer barbecues, and just feeling the warm sun on my skin. Here’s to my second favorite season!

Lastly, we are moving to a new apartment at the end of this month and I am stoked! While the apartment we’ve been in has been relatively good to us, we’re moving closer to my job and it will be a whole lot easier of a commute. Plus it has two pools! I’m just ready to be in a bigger city and away from downtown.


So there you have it, my June 2017 goals. I’m pretty excited for this coming month and I really can’t wait to complete some of these goals and get through our upcoming plans! What are some of your goals for the month? Let me know in the comments below!


Desk Tour 2017

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog! As I mentioned in my last post, I moved last weekend to New Hampshire and have begun settling in and putting away all my belongings. Since I have just set up my desk and I’m in absolute love with it, I’d thought I’d do a quick desk tour today! If you’d like to see how I’ve done my setup, check it out below!

Moving 101: Living in a Small Space

Hey bloggers, happy Thursday! Today’s post is going to cover something important in the post-graduate world – finding your own place. Luckily I’ve managed to join my boyfriend and a few of his friends in their house from last year, and will be living there until the end of next May! However for the next two months, me and my boyfriend will be staying in a smaller room as our landlords move in for the summer, so in the past week I’ve learned quite a bit about downsizing and making a smaller room work. If you’re moving into a smaller space, check out some of my tips below!
