March Goals!

I think March is going to be a good month! It will definitely be busy with school with projects, papers, and exams, but we will be approaching a little more than half way through mark in the semester, so that will be nice! Plus, there is spring break to look forward to at the end of the month, which will be a whole glorious week off of school and work that I will be spending in San Diego on a girls trip with my friend to see my family. Dai and I will also be going to a baby shower and a BBQ with family friends, and his parents will be visiting from Japan. I actually didn't really realize how busy this month will be until I typed all of this out!

It has been a while since I have posted any monthly goals and this month I was inspired to write some! So here they are..

+ Blog more
This is a pretty obvious goal, since you all know I haven't bee the best blogger for a while! It is hard to balance everything, but I find myself feeling better when I have this creative outlet for myself. So, I think I will just have to make scheduling in a bit of time for blogging every week so that I can keep up with it! Hang in there with me :)

+ Be better about leaving comments on blogs and connecting with others on social media
I can't tell you how many times I have read a blog post or saw an Instagram photo and thought "I should leave a comment... I'll just come back later and do it" and never did! It's bad... But I don't want to just be a "ghost" reader and I'd like to connect with fellow bloggers more!

+ Finish my second round of Whole30!
I am already on day 12 and am trucking along! It has been good and I am looking forward to accomplishing this goal. I also am starting to think about what I want my lifestyle to look like afterwards, which is a daunting task, but something to definitely keep in mind.

+ Shoot or book at least one photo session
I finally launched my site back in January, but since then I haven't actually done much with it. I would really like to get behind the camera this month and shoot a portrait session! If you live in the Bay Area (or even San Diego since I'll be there this month) and would like to meet for some photos, e-mail me! Plus, there may be a really good reader discount :)

+ Get Blog Buddies Network going again!
Morgan has signed on to be my fellow admin, which I am excited for! We haven't gotten it up and fully running again yet though, so we will

+ Read one book for fun
Just one! This isn't a very difficult goal, but reading is something I haven't been doing for a while, which makes me sad. I got several new books around the holidays, so I need to finally read them! I am thinking I will read Brooklyn first because I'd really like to see the movie!

+ Edit my resume and apply for a summer internship!
Resumes are one of the most annoying things to do, yet they are a necessary evil unfortunately. I would really like to do an internship this summer (after all, it is a possibility that by next summer I could be a college graduate! ahhh!) and have an opportunity to do one at a great company, but I still need to submit my resume! And it needs some work, so I have to get on that!

+ Start doing some sort of exercise
Whether that is doing yoga in my living room, running, going for power walks with Marly, or joining a gym near my house, I would like to make a conscious effort to do something for exercise at least 3 times per week, just like I am making the conscious effort to eat well.

Alright, well I think that is enough for this month! I am really looking forward to hopefully accomplishing all of these things and I am really excited about this month! It's gonna be a good one :)

What are your goals for this month? Do we have any similar ones?
