I know I say this every time but HOW IS JULY OVER?? I can’t believe that August starts in just a couple days (also I know this post is a little early but I didn’t want to post twice on Wednesday and that’s when my camp nano post goes up. Confused yet? Me too ๐Ÿ˜‚

Anyway, today I’m going to be recapping my month and sharing some of my favorite moments + my goal recap.

July Goals

July Goals.png

I CANNOT believe that it is already July!! I still have about two months of summer left (school starts the last week of August) but I have barely touched on my goals. I definitely want to do better this month!

I don’t have many goals but some are pretty hard (hint: exercise). I’m also doing camp nano this month (look out for a post about that on Wednesday and the first update on Friday) so I think I’ll be pretty busy ๐Ÿ™‚ Plus I want to do a LOT better with blogging (soo sorry for not posting for a couple weeks! tbh I was just dreading sitting down and writing/formatting/coming up with a good post) ANYWAY… time for goals!

july goals

  • get started on room redo – I have been putting this off for FOREVER even though it’s fun. I need to at least start – whether that’s decluttering, shopping, or something else!
  • earn $25 –ย It might not seem like much (it’s not!) but I haven’t been doing very well with this so I need to get started again.
  • make bread –ย agg this is fun but also really time-consuming so I’ve been putting it off. I really do need to do it, though!
  • finish the Old Testament –ย You guys, I’m SO close!! I’m pretty sure I’m in Habakkuk, which means I only have a few very short books to go! Yay ๐Ÿ™‚
  • do a 30 day prayer challenge – Prayer is something that’s hard for me, so I want to do a 30 day challenge and really make it a habit.
  • walk/run a total of 50 miles – yeah this is pretty crazy. Basically, I want to move for 50 miles this July! That’s about 2 miles every day for 6 days a week. I’m not sure I can do this but I really really want to!
  • make cookies –ย this is not something I put off… lol I love this!! Can’t wait to do it ๐Ÿ™‚
  • camp nano –ย Like I said, I’ll get into more detail about my project this July on Wednesday!

july habits

My habits this month are:

  • prayer
  • bible reading
  • exercise
  • wake up early/earlier

july bujo

I did make a bujo this month, but I don’t really love it. I’m still going to use it but I’m kinda hesitant to share pictures because it’s not the best! I decided to though just because it doesn’t really matter if it looks great anyway (even though I’m only sharing the good pages… haha)!

My 50 miles tracker/fitness tracker
My word tracker for camp nano (messy, but I think it’ll work!)
My blog spread ๐Ÿ™‚ Super important even though it’s really messy lol
And my calendar – including the crayon drawn 4th of july thingy. xD

Do you have any goals for this month?

โคย bye,


March Review | April Goals ๐ŸŒผ

post featured image (1)

March was a great month for me! I officially launched Christina’s Convos (my podcast about blogging and completed most of my goals! Let’s get started ๐Ÿ™‚


r e v i e w i n gย  ย  ย m a r c h

Overall, March was a good month.ย  My goals were:

p e r s o n a l

  1. Make $90-ย I didn’t have any way to track this… but I’m also pretty sure that this didn’t happen. I was confident about this because of my success in February, but this month didn’t so well in this respect. That’s okay, though ๐Ÿ™‚ย 
  2. Read through 1st Samuel-ย Yes! I did this and finished on the first of the month.ย ๐Ÿ˜‚ย 
  3. Make/Keep a prayer journal– Kinda? I did this for about four days… ๐Ÿ˜‚ย I would say that this is a failure!
  4. Journal daily-ย Agh I was so close! I didn’t do it for a week near the end of the month (aka now) but I did it for 21 consecutive days! Pretty annoyed about this one, but I knew I wouldn’t be able to do it ๐Ÿ˜‚ย (also sorry for using this emoji WAY too much)ย 

a c a d e m i c

  1. Finish Omnibus Secondary Selfpaced– yes! I finished on the 8th! I was so excited… but also really disappointedย  because it was the only class I 100% loved ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
  2. Keep a practice log for Piano- Yay! I did this too ๐Ÿ™‚ Although I pretty much just did it 3 days at a time… (the logging, not the practicing)
  3. Practice Spanish every day- no ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I was going strong for a while but weekends were harder. Honestly, I practiced Spanish daily but I was counting only Duolingo. The only days I missed were Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays and towards the end of the month I just… quit. Whoops.

b l o g g i n g

  1. Blog every Monday and Friday (9 times)– Yes! I did this ๐Ÿ™‚ Of course, all with the help of my trusty WordPress scheduler. What would I do without you?
  2. Send out emails on Thursdays 4 times- Yay! I did this too. Probably the first time in the history of C & C that I actually did soo yay ๐Ÿ˜‚๐ŸŽ‰


a p r i lย  ย g o a l s

p e r s o n a l

  1. Make $50-ย Significantly lower than last month. But I still kinda doubt I can do it… I’ll probably earn around $30 which is low but that’s okay!
  2. Read through 2nd Chroniclesโ€“ To keep track with my “read the bible in 2019 plan”, I need to this. Again, pretty confident! Especially since I’m in 1st Chronicles right now ๐Ÿ™‚
  3. Workout/Run/Yoga dailyโ€“ I really need to do some sort of exercise daily so I’m putting this down. I doubt I will do it (guys I’m such a desk potato- like I don’t sit on the couch I just sit at my desk ๐Ÿ˜‚)
  4. Drink moreย waterโ€“ I feel like every time I drink water, I feel sick. xD I know it’s not true though… but I really do not drink enough water. I probably only drink 16 ounces a dayย on a good day and I’m supposed to drink 64. So this is really important!
  5. Do Camp NaNo-ย I signed up for Camp NaNo like last week but I’m really excited ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m also starting a whole new story (like I have not developed ONE character and I have no idea what’s going to happen) soo pray for me guys. (I mean, jk, but please actually do ๐Ÿ˜‚)

a c a d e m i c

  1. Keep a Practice Log for pianoโ€“ This month, that’s my habit tracker ๐Ÿ™‚ But still, it’s important, so I’m putting it down.
  2. Practice Spanish every dayโ€“ Honestly I doubt I will do this. But since I need to try, I’m going to *attempt* to do Duolingo every day! Of course, I have Spanish class also, but I want to do this ๐Ÿ™‚

b l o g g i n g

  1. Blog every Monday and Friday (nine times)-ย I pretty much have to do this soo
  2. Send out emails on Thursday four timesโ€“ I’m confident about this, but I need to do it so it’s a goal ๐Ÿ˜‚
  3. Post four episodes (at least) on Christina’s Convos-ย This is going to be hard because I need to schedule them ahead, but I’m hoping that I can do this!
  4. Get ahead with blogging– I feel like I’m running in a hamster wheel thingy- I get ahead and then I’m behind again. This month, I really want to actually get REALLY ahead and stay ahead ๐Ÿ˜‰
  5. Do (some of) Maggie’s April Blogging Challenge Maggie is hosting an April blogging challenge, and I’m super excited about it! I know I’m not going to be able to do all of the challenges, but I will try to do some of them ๐Ÿ™‚ I may end up doing all the challenges for each week in one post, but that’s okay.ย 


Thank you guys for reading! What are your goals for April?
