We’re rapidly approaching February, breezing right through the first month of the new year. Unbelievable really! I felt like I didn’t accomplish as much as I had wanted to this month, which really sucks, but it just gives me a push to get more done in February.
Honestly, December is about to end, and I couldn’t be happier. The holidays are just about over, and that means we’re in for a long winter (unfortunately – no, I’m not stoked about that). What I am stoked for, though, is to head back into saving money and focusing on my goals. This month I know I didn’t accomplish as much as I wanted to because of Christmas.
Another month down, one more to go. November wasn’t too bad, but I don’t think I accomplished as much as I had hoped to accomplish. The holidays tend to do that, not to mention my work schedule has been all over the place. But hey, we hired a new girl, and are hiring one more for weekends (because my manager said he hired her so I can spend weekends with Ray – legit only reason for that). I’m feeling a little more optimistic now, 2018 is going to be filled with some changes.
Once again, we are nearing the end of the month. I say this every month, but man, time sure is flying! It’s been weird for November, we’ve started to get cold weather, but it’s been mild so far. Makes me worried what the weather is going to be like in December, and January is always one of the worst months. I’m hoping it’s not as bad as they are predicting. Time will tell.
It’s… November? Already? How? Time has surely been flying right by. Before too long now, holiday music will be playing on the radio and we’ll be seeing Christmas decorations everywhere. Oh… Wait… they’ve already started that haven’t they? Why does Christmas start in October? This is why I love and hate the holidays.
October is coming to a wrap already, how crazy is it that we’re so close to the end of the year? It seems like it just started, didn’t it? 2018, hold up. Crazy enough, I’m sort of stoked for the holidays this year, so bring it on November. You can keep the cold away, though. The last two months I’ve kept up with this theme of the highs and lows of the month.
I also had a personal goal list here.
So what are some highs and lows of the month?
The sounds of crickets at night. Or birds in the morning. You really feel a sense of peace and calm when you hear nature singing. Ocean and forest sounds.
The sound of pages turning in a book.
One thing is for sure – I am great at writing everyday. I wake up with full motivation to type up a blog post. And I absolutely love it. So my writing challenge – on point with it everyday. My photography challenge, however, I think I’m going to have to cut it back to every few days versus everyday. It’s too hard right now to find time to take photos everyday, and when I do, they have been mostly basic.
Black and white photos are my favorite. So simple and classic. It’s one of my favorite styles. So for today’s theme, I could basically do anything, as long as it was black and white.
I kind of lacked a creative way of making these photos. My phone case is very basic and simple, so I kept the photos simple.
