June Recap and July Goals

Happy 4th of July, friends! I hope you all have had a wonderful and fun holiday weekend! I spent a lot of time with my extended family, going to a baseball game, having yummy takeout BBQ, doing sparklers, and just generally having fun!

It's crazy that we're already several days into July, and also halfway through 2017! But personally, I'm super excited for the month of July, because for me, that means my big, exciting trip to Europe!!! So you could definitely say this will be a big month for me!

As always here on the blog, with a new month comes a new set of goals. And starting this month, I'm officially part of a Monthly Goals Collaboration with several other bloggers! Here are this month's awesome collabers:



And now, I give you a recap of how I did on my June goals, along with my goals for July:

J U N E  R E C A P

Finish out my environmental science class well.
I am happy to say that I finished up Environmental Science quite well ~ in fact, I got an A- in the class! *pats self on back*

Get any remaining necessities for my trip.
Done as done can be!

Blog 3 times a week.
This one gets to be crossed out halfway. I did so well with this for the first 2-3 weeks of the month, until I hit a busy / uninspired week where I only posted once (and then the next week posted twice). So I accomplished like, 75% of this goal.

Finish reading "Saint John Paul the Great: His Five Loves."
I am the slowest reader on the face of the planet, you guys. Yep, you guessed it: I'm still not done with this book. However, I made a lot of progress on it and I'm this close to being done with it!

Read "The Story of a Soul" (St. Therese's autobiography).
Negative. However, I decided to bring it with me on my trip when I'm in France, so I'll be reading it then!

Start reading the Diary of St. Faustina.
Also negative. But also have decided to read it on my trip when I'm in Poland!

Don't spend any money unnecessarily.
I'm happy to say I did quite well on this one! Yay for saving money.

Practice French 4 times a week.
This one gets another halfsy (is that a word?), because while I did practice some French, it was not with that amount of regularity.

Exercise 3 times a week.
Same with this goal. I did exercise, but not with that amount of regularity.

Get rid of some more clothes.
Nope, didn't get around to this one. I'll have to do it in August when I'm home from my trip.

Finish knitting my dishcloth + knit one more thing.
While I did not knit one more thing, I did just about finish my cute little dishcloth!

Write + queue up blog posts to go live throughout July (while I'm overseas).
Done! So even though I'll be gallivanting abroad, you can still expect to see some posts from me over the next few weeks!

J U L Y  G O A L S

Now for my July goals... Except that I only have one. Since I'm going to be out of the country for a large part of the month, my one and only goal is:
Have an amazing trip!!!

So there you have it, friends! Happy July!


Sincerely,
~Stephanie
