April Goals


#1. Find A Job! 
I'm about to enter the real world and I am just a tad bit scared/overwhelmed. In just a few short weeks I will be graduating from college and my life will be a whole lot different than it has been for the past 4 years. No longer will I be a student, I will be a working adult, hopefully! This month I am putting finding a job at the top of my priority list. 

#2. Lease my first ever apartment.

For the last three years I have lived in a cooperative house at Purdue with 39 other girls. I have loved it dearly, but I am eager for my own space. I am so anxious to have my own closet, my own bathroom and my own bedroom. I am hoping to find the perfect little apartment by the end of April. I am already thinking of how I want to decorate it and make it my own. 

#3. Soak in the last few weeks of being a Boilermaker. 

Just the thought of leaving Purdue makes my eyes swell. I love this place more than anything and I am going to do everything in my power to hold on to these last few moments of bleeding black and gold.

#4. Enjoy learning.

It's crazy to think that I have been enrolled in school for over a decade and a half. I truly have been blessed with the opportunity to learn for so long, but I think I take it for granted far too often. I am going to enjoy learning in a classroom setting this month.

#5. Embrace time with friends.

This one is a tear jerker for me too, I know you are all shocked. School is winding down and so is my time living under the same roof as all of my best friends. You best believe that I am going to embrace every second I have left with them.

#6. Pray more, worry less.

With all of these big life changes happening at once I have been worrying like crazy and have been discovering occasional gray hairs..yes gray hairs at the age of 22. Something has to change friends. This month I am going to commit to praying more and worrying less.

#7. Think positive thoughts about April 25th.

My grandpa passed away last year on April 25th. It was the roughest day of my life to date. My sweet cousin Courtney had already set her wedding date for April 25th of this year, so the day is going to be awfully bittersweet. I am going to try really hard to remember all of the great memories of my grandpa, while celebrate the happy couple and make new memories.

#8. Try something new.

I am eager for a new hobby and this month I am going to challenge myself to start something new. Does anyone have some good ideas?

#9. Book our honeymoon! 

Our wedding is slowly approaching and my little wedding app keeps buzzing at me to book our honeymoon. David and I are going to book our sweet getaway this month.

#10. Buy birthday presents! 

May is full of millions of birthdays and there are lots of presents to be bought. This month I am going to find the perfect birthday gifts for all of the important people of my life.
