Mid-Year Check-In: How am I Doing on My Goals for 2021?

Ever year I am overconfident in setting my goals…

As I always do each year, today I’m taking a look at how I’m doing on my 2021 goals, now that we are somehow halfway through 2021 already. It’s always a fun surprise to do this post and reread these goals that I set in January and promptly forgot!

Whenever I do these check-ins, I feel like I overestimate my capabilities when setting my goals, but I think it also offers an opportunity to challenge and stretch myself. And I really do think checking in with my goals helps me to see what I can do for the rest of the year and realign my priorities, however cliche that may sound!!

May’s Moments of the Month: June // It is Summer and I am Still Stressed

June was basically filled with existential dread for me.

No way this year has gone by so quickly already… no way practically half my summer is gone already… I appreciate the freedom and relaxation that summer brings (or Should bring) but wow I think I am just in a constant state of stress at this point because I did not feel that relaxed at all.

June was clearly a bit stressful for me despite it being summer. Life Stuff is just so pressuring, not to mention all the pressures I put on myself! I wasn’t even able to achieve that much escapism through reading since I didn’t enjoy a lot of what I read in June and I also didn’t write… I am struggling big time basically.

May’s Moments of the Month: May // I’m Finally Done with School!

May was surprisingly… not too bad!

Even though I was dead for most of it because school decided it was a great idea to murder all the students in the last few weeks of the year, I survived it in the end. And lots of good things actually happened to me throughout the month, things that I’m very grateful for and excited about! And though I wasn’t as active online because of school, I had a lot of fun buddy reading with friends.

Overall May was a pretty decent month (and it better have been, because it was “my” month or whatever idk I hate making this joke but I can’t help myself we’re carrying on now), but I’m definitely ready for summer.

May’s Moments of the Month: April // Did Anything Actually Happen?

April honestly did not feel real.

I think time in general does not feel real now, but last month literally feels like it was a month of just Void. I don’t know if anyone else had the same experience or if it was just me, but as I sat writing this post I was just like wow. Absolutely nothing happened!

Anyway, it’s a bit funny to say that I’m here to give a recap of the month when I just said it felt like nothing happened, but here I am giving a recap of April! (I think the most exciting part of this month was the books I read, because they were very good and also at this point I am nothing but existential dread and escapism through fiction.)

May’s Moments of the Month: March // It’s Still Rough but Getting Better!

Hello… I’m back! For real!

Sorry if my last post gave you a scare (though I think I actually fooled myself into feeling more motivated to do more blogging things again). I personally think it was a fun way to start off April, which I’m hoping will be a good month! :D

Today I’m here to recap the month and update you all on how things have been for me, since it’s been a while! Overall, March was a bit of a rough month for me, but not too terrible. It honestly was just the first half that was miserable, because of school, but later I found some comfort in books and writing.
