Inside My Mind: Personal Goals v14

I am writing this post at 2AM since my entire evening was greatly interrupted by my wonderful friends and family for my 21st surprise birthday party (almost two months early!). I try and write my posts ahead of time, but as many bloggers know…sometimes you are rushing to write them the night before! Well, with my travelling back to school tomorrow and packing today (or napping and watching Full House reruns). Thanks to many, many beautiful people…my night was filled with other great festivities!

Inside My Mind - Pearls and Polkadots

So here I am, totally surprised, exhausted and grateful for the ones who love me and brought together this beautiful party in my honor! Which is why I am not writing this goals post off at two in the morning…

Last time, I set one goal for myself (in addition to three other goals I had on the list):

1. Incentive Planning

I did not get around to this in the least. With all the sleeping, “marathoning” (it’s my term for watching one series in a day), and doing nothing…I really just didn’t do my homework. Plain and simple.

2. Release a DIY Tutorial

So this is in the works, however, it is not released because this past week was my latest series, “A Thanksgiving Series of Details!“…but that will be coming soon!

3. Learn how to use my DLSR camera

I could technically check this one off…but I won’t because there is still so much to learn! I want to keep learning…and this should be able to motivate me to do that!

Learn Bloglovin’.

Thank. Goodness. I am so relieved that my Bloglovin’ is set up!! You have no idea how much reading I had to do on this one…now I just need followers!! So go follow me


This week, I have one goal to add to my list:

Gain more followers on Bloglovin’

This one is not really within my control…but I am going to try and hustle to get more followers! I am at four right now…so I have a long way to go…

I am going to cut this post off right now because I am literally falling asleep as I type (excuse the spelling errors…). I don’t always get too personal on my blog…but this is a special occasion!

I had been looking at using a tool to help boost my followers, read the Gramista Review – Is Gramista Worth investment? Turns out, yes it is. But we’ll talk about that in more detail another day guys!

To all my friends and family: THANK YOU for such a memorable night!
