Monthly Wrap Up · My Series

It’s The Last Day Of August!

August has come and gone, so now it’s time for September to step up. Overall, I would say this was a good month for me. So many things have changed and I feel like I’ve done so much already. I’ll include you in on those down below. Now, this is how it works. I will share what I was obsessed with this month, what I accomplished, what I did, and what I’m thankful for. Let’s get to it!

Usually, I don’t try new beauty products. Once I like something, I stick to it. Never change things up. But, I’ve been loving the Shea Moisture products. Just about all of them actually. I love their face wipes, shampoo and conditioner, lotions. I can’t wait to try out more of their products. Maybe a face mask?

Because it’s summer, I have been shopping like crazy. I bought a couple new shirts, cardigans, shorts, and sandals last week. I also found some cute overalls from Forever 21. They are so comfy and look really cute with cut off tank tops. I haven’t been able to find the right pair for over a year now. I don’t like the skin tight ones. I like it to be a little lose, especially around my hips.

Lately, I’ve been eating bagels. A few weeks ago, I went to Bruegger’s Bagels for the first time, yes I’m serious, and I fell in love. I like the honey walnut cream cheese as well as the bacon scallion. I work at a restaurant in a hotel and discovered that they serve both of these cream cheese’s for breakfast. Now, every time I go to work, I eat a bagel with cream cheese, for free. Yay me!

As you’ve probably noticed, I started my own monthly mini challenge series. It’s fun and I think my readers like to try them with me. It forces me to do things I wouldn’t normally do or things I should be doing. It helps me feel more confident. Anyways, this month, I did the Healthy Habits Mini Challenge and overall, I think it went pretty well. You probably already know this, but I like to do my review here instead of a separate post. Now then, let’s do the review!

  • August 4th— I stopped procrastinating. I’ve been putting my plan for graduate school on the back burner so I made a change and got on it.
  • August 9th— I did something nice for others. I bought a dozen cupcakes from Molly’s, my favorite, and passed them out to my towns homeless people.
  • August 11th—I tried something new. I went paint balling with all guys. It was tough trying to stay in and not get defeated every second.
  • August 15th— I avoid technology for the day. Honestly, it wasn’t that bad. I got SO MUCH done. I’d say it was a pretty productive day for me.



I’ve been taking Spanish since I was in elementary school and because I didn’t take it my senior year of high school, I had to take 4 semesters of it in college. Had to start ALL OVER again. I took Intermediate 1 and 2 in the summer so I would be done with it in a 12-weeks instead of another year. So glad I made that choice. The class is now over and I NEVER have to take Spanish again. I am so happy and proud of myself! After my last day, I celebrated with a margarita at my favorite restaurant, Cactus!

My best friend, Tran, moved to Fitchburg in June because her fiancé got a job there. It’s hard not seeing my best friend all the time so my other best friend, Emily, and I decided to come up for the weekend. I had a great time, especially with her cat, Zelda. She is so playful. Woke me up most of the night with her need to attach my toes. What I liked most about my visit was the food. It’s nice getting to try out new places and different styles that isn’t in Iowa. I tried this walking taco with Fritos and boy was it delicious!

It feels so weird to say that. The past few years really snuck up on me. I remember my senior year in high school. Everyone was counting down the days. But in college, at least for me, I didn’t even notice it. I plan on going to graduate school so I still have a few years a head of me. I will defiantly be counting down those days. It’ll be so amazing to be done with school. FOREVER. I look forward to all the new memories, football games, tailgating parties, and great nights with friends 🙂

I haven’t started yet but I am very excited and grateful for this opportunity for me to gain more experience, help those who are grieving, and comfort someone who is ill as well as their family. I’m a little nervous but I think this experience will be amazing for me and really give me a new perspective. I hope to do a post about this once I start seeing patients!

And now, I have finished this monthly wrap up! I would love to read your monthly posts too so send me a link below in the comments section.Screen Shot 2017-07-16 at 11.34.27 PM
