November Goals (10 in 30)

Goals keep your months on track. What are your goals for this month? These are mine!

Get ready people, because it’s going to snow soon! Fall is in full swing and I love that! My tires need some extra pressure before the snow really starts to fall though, so please wait until I do that snow!

1// HALLMARK MOVIE MARATHON

I’m ready! This is not a drill. It’s that time where all of the very cheesy movies come back on of people visiting small towns, or a farm, and they find their “true love”.

2// BAKE A PIE

pumpkin, cherry, or apple I’m not picky! I just want to make a pie. The smell of it in the house is so wonderful, and I honestly don’t think I’ve baked a cherry pie before, so that would be interesting!

3// PREPARE FOR WINTER

So, it snowed again today, and I’m not ready! My heat in my place is still not working, and I really need to put air in my tires. There’s a lot to prep for when it starts to get to that winter time!

I also need more tights. I only have one pair and that isn’t going to work for work. I need a couple new pairs!

4// SLEEP THE CORRECT AMOUNT OF HOURS

I’ve very feast for famine when it comes to sleep. Either I’m getting five hours of sleep a night and drinking copious amounts of coffee, or my body says “enough” and I’ll sleep all day for two days. I want to add this to my balanced life by making sure I’m sleeping the correct amount each night!

5// STICK TO MY BUDGET/ BUDGET WHERE ALL MY MONEY IS GOING

Because of how busy life has been, I’ve been very bad at my budgeting app. I haven’t been following along with everything I’ve been spending. We all have those months, where the bills and life gets away from you and then you realize how much you’re spending on eating out or coffee and it’s shocking! I don’t want to do that this month. If I can save on my coffee and make it at home, then I can purchase my Disney ticket I really want to get for December.

Keep my priorities in line!

6// SAVE 20% ON TOP OF TITHING 10%

Yes I understand this is a lofty goal, but I want to have my life reject what I out loud say my priority are. Therefore, I need to save. I want to be able to have the financial freedom to do what I want when I want, and right now I can’t do that.

I have, worked my way through college, I live off of one income and own my own place, but I’m not there yet. I’m not at that place where I have full financial freedom. I really want to get there!

Further Watching: I love this video by Sorelle: THE REAL COST OF ONE YEAR AS A DIGITAL NOMAD

I thought it was such an honest look at what being a digital nomad looks like for her. Not that I necessarily want to be a digital nomad, bu tI would like to have the financial freedom she’s talking about.

7// DO TWO THINGS PER DAY THAT MOVE ME TOWARDS MY GOALS

It’s almost the end of the year somehow. This year more than most in the past I’ve spend working. I am very grateful to have a job, but I want to make action steps to move me towards my end goals.

8// FINISH UP MY BACK ROOM

There is this one room in my place that keep plaguing me! It’s so unfinished and it has definitely become my catch all. It’s the room in the apartment that when people come over I’m always like “Don’t go in there. It’s unfinished.” I’m tired of saying that. I just want it to be complete!

9// TRY TO GET UP BEFORE 6AM

You’ve all seen the posts floating around about how to wake up earlier, and I’m obsessed with them. I want to be that navy seal that wakes up early and gets everything done before 11am! But I also know me, and I’m a night owl. So it’s going to be a balancing act.

10// BRING SOMETHING TO FRIENDSGIVING/ THANKSGIVING

I’m going to be in Colorado for Thanksgiving this year, and I really want to full on bake something to bring to Thanksgiving. One of my friends has invited me to come to her house, and I don’t wan to show up empty handed!
