Happy March!


Happy March, everyone!! Yes, my header photo is of a pineapple. It is quite a beautiful pineapple, don't you think? (If you follow me on Instagram then you've already heard me babble about this beautiful aesthetic pineapple and I apologize for you having to hear it again.)

Y'know how I said in the beginning of my post last month that I was finally getting the hang of writing 2016 instead of 2015. Well, I failed at that. I thought I was getting the hang of it and the bam last night I wrote 2015 and the cycle has begun again. Go me.

February was a good month, although it was totally crazy. We have a show coming up in two and a half weeks, as well as another show in two months so I've had rehearsals for both. It's really stressful, but it's super exciting- I can't wait for the shows! They're going to be so much fun.

Some pretty fun things happened in February- Valentine's Day, swing dancing, I went back to ballet, Fuller House premiered, and I started To Kill a Mockingbird. It was a stressful month, but a good month. Lots of fun things and time spent with friends.

I'm interested to see what March holds- I still can't quite believe that it's March! Time really flies. I have some fun posts planned for this month, as well as the show coming up, of course. It's all very exciting!

~~~~~

I've got to admit, I did terribly on my February resolutions. Let's look at exactly how badly I did...

-Watch more Once Upon A Time - Fail. I've gotten super into NCIS, so that's my excuse. Once Upon A Time is kind of going on the back burner for now. I've gotten obsessed!

-Make a blogging schedule and stick to it - HA. I wish. I really need to do that this month..

-Read more often! - Nope. I did get read The Old Man and the Sea, as well as re-reading The Hunger Games  and starting To Kill a Mockingbird. I wanted to read more than that though, and I just didn't get a chance. 

-Get caught up on school- ......... no comment.

-Finish redoing my walls- I didn't get to completely finish this, although I do have almost everything ready to hang. Hopefully I'll finish up that project this weekend!

-Stretch 3x weekly outside of dance class- I didn't keep track of exactly how often I stretched, but I've finally gotten my right split, and I'm close to my middle, so I'm really happy about that!

-Bake a recipe that I've pinned on Pinterest - I made cupcakes, and although the recipe wasn't from Pinterest, I got the idea to package them in plastic cups on Pinterest, which was super handy!

-Make a habit of journaling more often- Yes! I've been journaling a ton this month, and I've really enjoyed it. 

~~~~~

Now for March's resolutions!

-Get further into NCIS

-Make a stricter blogging plan/schedule

-Get caught up on school

-Start sharing posts from my trip to New York

-Write 4 more chapters of my novel

-Start hand lettering again

-Get into a better exercise regimen

~~~~~

I'm determined to blog more this month; I only got eight posts published in February. Is it weird to blog a trip that I took three months ago? I never really shared much from New York, but I have tons of photos and stories that I'm really excited to share. I'm also hoping to get on a regular schedule, which will be good.

I have a question for you all- do you like the Dancing With The Stars recap posts? It's starting up this month, and I didn't know if I should keep them up. Let me know what you think below!

How was YOUR February? What are YOU looking forward to this March? What's YOUR opinion on the DWTS posts? What have you been up to lately? Do YOU have any resolutions? Share below!

  3. TWO SHOWS!!! You are a busy girl. But you are also a busy girl with a beautiful pineapple, soo...

    I feel you on the goals. In fact, I've been too distracted to even make goals the past few months, but that's going to change in my journaling session tonight. Speaking of, congrats on the journaling! It is super fun, is it not?

    I consider eight posts a month pretty good when it comes to blogging, so don't sweat that. And honestly, I don't watch DWTS, so I wouldn't read those posts.

    Keep going for those goals, but please don't beat yourself up if you don't meet them. We are creatures born of grace, so let us live the lives of grace as we exercise, blog, and read!

    Happy March!

    1. "But you are also a busy girl with a beautiful pineapple sooo..." XD THAT MADE ME LAUGH SO HARD OH MY GOODNESS HANNAH I LOVE YOU.

      Journaling is literally the best thing ever. It's such a stress reliever! I always feel so much better after I write everything down.

      Thanks! And thank you for the feedback! I'm still trying to make up my mind as far as what to do about those.

      Thank you for the encouragement, Hannah! You are the best:)

  5. Ooh, I do so like the idea of making monthly goals like this! GO YOU! ;D And congrats on the dancing achievements *sprinkles confetti in your hair* and also getting a lot done in February. I feel like I got nothing done. XD Although I did finish editing my book and kept up with my reading goals?! :P I don't have many big plans for March, but hopefully I'll start writing again!! I used to take month-long breaks, but I'm trying to do more this year for sure. heh. ;D

    2. February is such a weird month...hopefully March will be much more productive. I need to stop by your Odesta blog later, I haven't had a chance lately.
