Heya Aspiring Gurus!
I was so excited today that I was able to plan my first official week in my Erin Condren Life Planner! I used a ton of stickers, which is just the way that I like to plan. I am looking forward to ordering a small 20 USD haul from Erin Condren to get more stickers. I really like the Do-It-All Dots and the blank event stickers. I might buy the sticker book, but I am not sure that it is actually worth it. You know? Or should I go with an Etsy haul for 20 USD and save the Erin coupon for later (it doesn’t expire)? Let me know your thoughts. I have a hard time deciding.
Okay, so I will go from the left to the right. I covered up the “Thankful Thoughts” and put in important reminders of the week like my doctor appointment and Danielle coming over. Underneath that I decided to do meal tracking for the week like all of the suppers that I am making. I didn’t really decide for the week yet. I usually go buy what I feel that day and what we have on hand. I also decorated underneath the boxes and down the side to separate the week from the extra space to write. I just love washi. I have the week’s work scheduled and a little to do list for after work for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
For Friday, I have my blog list out. I only know one post that I’m doing. I’ll just write the rest in as I go along. I’m trying to stay ahead of Julamorous. I already have the first week completed, so I am working on the second and third. There are five weeks in the month this year. I then have my little chores like exercising, laundry, and taking care of my pets. In the last box, I have the shows I want to watch, getting in some reading time, and watching the Fireworks. They always start at a different time!
For Saturday, I just decorated it for spending the day with my best friend at my place. It is pretty low key. We gossip, eat lunch, and watch a movie. We don’t really care what we do as long as we are together. We get so little time! Our schedules are so busy, but since Dani is out of school, we might be able to squeeze in more visits with each other. And you better visit me at home Dani after the baby is born! It would be nice to have you come over while I’m stuck on bedrest.
Sunday is a busier day for me, because I have a lot to do. I go grocery shopping early in the morning and I like to walk the dogs after lunch. I have to do my workout that is pregnancy safe. Basically, I can do almost any workout as long as I do a short one (20 minutes) and cut down the amount of reps to 5-10. I cannot get out of breath or really sweat. That would be overdoing it. I also do my blogging on Sunday and like Friday, I will add more posts as I get the ideas for them. I also plan for the following week on Sunday and make a special meal and dessert. I also make sure to have at least two pamper night a week. Making special time for me is very important in pregnancy.
Well, that is it until Wednesday, the start of Julamorous! I have a Happy rest of your Sunday and a Good Monday!

The High School Musical stickers! And of course I will come visit you. Permitting everything goes the way I want to, my graduate work will all be online so I can basically do what I want whenever I want, and it will start in winter. Though I hope we would see each other again before that point!
Oh, I plan on coming over in August while it’s still nice out! I know, I could not resist the stickers, especially since you are coming over this week! Wow! You are starting in the Fall? I’m looking into UMass Online College for finishing both of my degrees. It’s 1,225 USD a course in English, but I think I will qualify for scholarships. The application is 60 USD, but I’m waiting to apply until Feb when I do my taxes and can fill out a FSA for aid. Hopefully, I’ll be enrolled and taking one online course next Fall.
I am not starting in the fall, and I planned it that way back in the spring. It’s too late to apply for fall Masters classes. I will start the process of looking into schools and applying in the fall, and hopefully start in winter. If I can’t start in winter, I have no problem waiting until next fall. I still have nightmares about school and while I would like my mfa, I need to be in a better place mentally before I start!
Oh! Winter, I got you. I agree with you. You should be ready mentally for your Master courses.
Most people I know have advised me to take time off. I think the professor of my seminar was actually starting to get concerned. It’s annoying though because I have so many people giving me crap about what I’m doing, and I’m trying not to let it bother me but it has. So I try to avoid them.
It’s hard to ignore people who have an opinion on how your life should be and what you are doing wrong. It’s your life. Nothing about it is wrong. People give you shit because life handed them lemons and they don’t know how to make lemonade but pretend that they do.
It is very hard to ignore. While I rarely actually take anyone’s advice, others comments make me feel lousy. No one is perfect and I could obviously snap back at these people, but that would make me just as bad. And it’s stupid because everyone at some point in their life or other goes through the same thing.
Exactly. My mom told me that if she ever saw me she would push me down a flight of stairs on Facebook, but I’m not gonna listen to her. It’s why I don’t Facebook anymore. You have to ignore the haters. Cause haters gonna hate hate hate hate. At least taylor got that right.
???? What a shitty thing to say. I mean I know you’re relationship with your mom was never that good but really. I’m sorry. Ultimately, you’re better off.
It’s not, but at least you don’t really have to deal with her anymore.
Nope! I don’t even use Facebook anymore. I think I’m going to delete it.
I always think about deleting mind but I use it to keep in touch with too many people. I rarely update it anymore.
