I used to do this thing where I listed my goals for the month/week/season/whatever. Buuuuuttt I haven't done that in a while so I figured why not. Plus I've seen some others 'round blog land doing the same thing and as they say, when in doubt, use someone else's idea. Or something. So here are my goals for the month of September.
Add an additional $1500 to my savings account
As I've mentioned a time or two, Derek and I are working on buying a house. We've talked with a mortgage lender and they suggested that we wait a few more months for our credit to build. Boo. I decided to look at the bright side and use these extra months to save some more dough.
Change my hair
I had this listed on last years fall goals, and I dyed my hair red for the winter. I absolutely loved it but right now my hair is literally two toned and that needs to change ASAP. Before I moved to the "city" I was able to get my hair done (cut/highlighted) for close to $60. Now it's anywhere from $90-120 and that is ridiculous buuuttt not quite as ridiculous as my head. Any suggestions? Short, long, blonde, brown?
Get back into the swing of things
Ever since I fell and fractured my arm, my gym habits have suffered. As in I've only been once in the last three weeks. I know most of you probably think I'm crazy for wanting go to back but my days just don't feel the same without those extra endorphins from my morning workout. I've been itching to get back in the gym, but I know when I go I'll be limited, thus causing extra disappointment and frustration. Basically I'm just ready for this dang arm to be back to normal.
Create a budget
This one will be the hardest one by far, since I no longer work full time. My paycheck fluctuates a little every month so it makes it a little difficult to set a budget. It's also made it hard to put the extra $$ into savings. I think if I create a budget and stick to it, I'll be able to put all of the extra into savings at the end of the month.
Study hard and make good grades
This is my goal for all of nursing school but especially this semester, as this is "the hardest semester" according to our teachers but they always say that. Regardless, working as a nurse and going to school is NO FUN, especially with the crazy schedule they decided to give me this semester.
