Weekly Wishes #3

Hey friends! I am home, back in my beloved California! Last week I sort of just dropped off the map a little, but I think that can be good for the soul sometimes. I missed Weekly Wishes last week, but here I am to fill you in on my wishes from two weeks ago and start this week off right!

Weekly Wishes is one of my favorite parts of the week, and I just love how Melyssa of The Nectar Collective has developed it. Be sure to check out her blog!

Finish writing a difficult letter to someone. Check! I did this and it felt great. I definitely feel better and I think it really helped!

Send some photos off to people, like wedding photos and portraits. Unfortunately, this just didn't happen. I really, really need to figure out what to do about the wedding photos (how do you easily transfer over 600 photos to someone?!), but the portraits I can put on discs until I figure out a better way. I may need to ask some professionals for advice on this one!

Figure out a better way to reply to comments. Done! Notice the new Disqus commenting system I (with help of Twitter haha) installed?! So far I really like it!

ENJOY my last week in Texas! Double check!! It was a nice week and I felt like I was really able to appreciate it. I did some adventuring and eating and photo taking. Not bad.

- Go to bed at a decent hour. Like by 10:30 or 11pm. I start school tomorrow, so this is especially important for me! I start at 8am, which I haven't done since high school, so I am expecting things to be rough haha how did they ever get me to do that for 12 years?!

- Create some sort of budget. Figure out what my monthly income is, my expenses, and how much I should be spending and saving! I am horrible at budgeting, but I think that is because I have never really tried to come up with any sort of system. I hear envelopes work well? Any ideas?

- Practice filming things. In September, a friend and I are filming a cute couple's wedding! Honestly, I am not quite sure how I got roped into this (I know NOTHING about making videos), but I am up for the challenge! It's always nice to learn new things, plus I love weddings. Win-win, right?

I am really terrible at going to bed at a reasonable hour. I hope this goes well for you!!

Best of luck this week! I definitely need to make some sort of budget too - maybe I'll add that to next week's wishes! My boyfriend and I tell ourselves every morning when we wake up groggy, that we're going to go to bed at a decent hour that night - and it never happens! Good luck!

I love that you're practicing filming! That's something that I've been wanting to get better at as well! And I'm loving Disqus! I recently switched over as well! I wasn't sold at first but now, I'm really liking it!

Budgets are quite helpful I just have to take the time to sit down and write it out. I am taking personal finance this semester so maybe that will help motivate me. Good luck with the whole 8 am business. I only have one 8 am (praise the lord) which isn't terrible. Freshman year I had an 8 am every day. IT WAS ROUGH.

Jessica Panian said...

Oh I feel for you your freshman year... I wouldn't be able to do it! I hope that your personal finance class does help and maybe you'll even be able to share some of your knowledge with us bloggers :)

Jessica Panian said...

Thanks! I have ZERO experience with filming, but we shall see!!

Jessica Panian said...

I know, right?! It's like we never learn from those mistakes, even when we feel crappy in the morning! We'll see how this goes...

Good job with some of your last week's wishes. Writing a difficult letter is definitely a challenge but congratulations for managing to do it. It makes all the difference in the world. Also, good luck with your wishes for this week! Getting up early used to be difficult for me too (and still is sometimes) but now that I have had to wake up super early in order to get to work on time for all summer, I've noticed I tend to get up earlier even when I have a day off. So trust me, no matter how tough it is at first, it gets easier with time!

ps. I like your blog! keep up the good work :)

Congrats on accomplishing last weeks goals! I've been considering installing Disqus because it seems so much easier for commenting.

Filming a wedding sounds like a lot of fun! Learning new skills is always great, right? Good luck on your goals this week :)
