September Goals 2016

sept-goals

A little late, but I definitely need to be held accountable for these goals. Like I said in my last post, I’m moving to New York, and since this came about so quickly, I have a lot of stuff to do this month! First, a look at my August Goals. August was a fun and eventful month with a lot to celebrate!

  • Read 5 books: This was a fail. I read TWO books last month. The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon and The Beauty of Darkness by Mary E. Pearson. They were both really good though, so that’s a plus. 
  • NAIL this interview (I can’t say anything about this yet, but prayer warriors– please keep me in your prayers for this!): Soo, I guess I did this because I got the job! *praise hands*
  • Celebrate Grandma’s birthday:  We threw my grandma a surprise party!
  • Celebrate Mommy’s Birthday: We had a dinner for my mom’s birthday (She requested a southern dinner of fried catfish and mac-n-cheese and it was DELICIOUS, fun, and just hours before I headed to the airport!)
  • Celebrate boyfriend and my 7th year anniversary (I know, right?!): We had a chill weekend of our favorite foods, Friends and relaxing, BUT we plan to do something bigger in NY!

Now, my September Goals:

  • Find an apartment/a place to stay in New York! At the time I’m writing this, I have my eye on an apartment, so keep your fingers crossed!
  • Pre-Record Booktube Videos
  • Have a Get-Together before I move
  • Go to dinner with friends
  • Pack/Give away clothes I don’t need
  • Social Media Overhaul: Since this is a social media job, I want to get all of my platforms in tip-top shape!
  • Watch some television!! A weird goal, but since this fellowship program is through a television company, I want to catch up on their programming! More to come:)

What are your goals for this month? Leave them in the comments!

    Also, congratulations on your anniversary and completing so many goals in the month of August. I am forever jealous on your productivity. I’m like lucky if I complete 50% of 50% of my goals 🙁

  • Wedding reads! The first is from one of my favorite authors ever, @morgamat. I’m so excited that her newest book is wedding themed! The second is my agent-mate, @jasminepics! I’ve heard amazing things about this one! I can’t wait to dig into both. 🤗
  • Friday feels 😏 #jumpingthebrown
  • Swipe left for non-spoilery thoughts on #BlackPanther. In short, it was amazing. Inspiring. Deep. And as someone who has seen almost EVERY Marvel movie, the absolute best! There were so many themes, great costumes, acting and that score!!! Ugh! I’m also so proud to see a fellow South Carolinian (Chadwick Boseman) on the big screen! ✊🏽 #WakandaForever
  • Doing what we love with who we love. 📖🥁#jumpingthebrown

  • Black Love in #BlackHistoryMonth 💗 a little sneak peek of our engagement photos! Can’t believe we’re less than 100 days away from saying I do! #JumpingTheBrown 👰🏽🤵🏽
  • Entering #blackhistorymonth with The Belles by @brownbookworm! I was told to have sweets on hand while reading this - luckily I have some leftover from wedding cake testing! Just started this and loving it already. 💗 #TheBelles
