My Highs and Lows This Month


If you’ve been following up with my blog posts, you’ll know that I have decided to start a 30 day writing challenge (challenge provided at the bottom of this post). This is the thirtieth and LAST post of the 30 from that challenge!


Day 30: Your highs and lows for the month.

For the past 30 days, I’d say my highs included finishing up my last prerequisites and most of the requirements for Nursing school, getting back to the gym, seeing my friends and family, George’s birthday, and sleeping in a lot. My lows would be losing a little bit of sleep on some days, but in reality, it’s been worth it and I can always nap and catch up on sleep afterwards. There hasn’t really been any lows that I can recall from this past month, which is fine by me.

My Goals for the Next 30 Days


If you’ve been following up with my blog posts, you’ll know that I have decided to start a 30 day writing challenge (challenge provided at the bottom of this post). This is the twenty-ninth post of the 30 from that challenge, all in hopes to get me back into my writing. Wish me luck!


Day 29: What are your goals for the next 30 days?

It is now September 4th, 2019. In exactly one month, I want to be employed, preferably by a medical office or hospital. I also want to be almost fully prepared to take my entrance exams for a couple Nursing school. That’s it, just 2 major goals that I really want to get done. If I’m lucky, I’ll also be certified as a CNA on top of it and maybe do some volunteering, but we’ll see. Those are just icing on the cake as far as my priorities go for this next upcoming month.

As for further on in the future, by the end of October, I should be set to just work, maybe volunteer, and start applying to Nursing school in November. Some minor goals that I’ve been kind of thinking about are to start reading and writing more. I have a lot of free time now that I’m not taking any classes, so I technically could, but I want to take all the time I can right now to study for my entrance exams. At least after that, I can then worry about reading and writing.

What Makes Me Laugh


If you’ve been following up with my blog posts, you’ll know that I have decided to start a 30 day writing challenge (challenge provided at the bottom of this post). This is the twenty-eighth post of the 30 from that challenge, all in hopes to get me back into my writing. Wish me luck!


Day 28: Post five things that make you laugh-out-loud

To be honest, I laugh at pretty much anything. I genuinely find lots of things funny, even the dumbest of jokes. So, this challenge should be fairly easy to conjure up.

  1. Random noises
  2. Most jokes
  3. I make myself laugh for no reason
  4. Things that people might say that aren’t even jokes
  5. Being dumb about something/making a mistake

Something That’s Kicking A** Right Now


If you’ve been following up with my blog posts, you’ll know that I have decided to start a 30 day writing challenge (challenge provided at the bottom of this post). This is the twenty-seventh post of the 30 from that challenge, all in hopes to get me back into my writing. Wish me luck!


Day 27: Conversely, write about something that’s kicking ass right now

I don’t have much that’s currently kicking my ass now, because usually it’s school. I’m done taking all my prerequisites for Nursing school and I already have my A.A. in Nursing, so I don’t need to take anymore classes until I start Nursing school, hopefully sometime in 2020. However, I would say working out at the gym has been kicking my ass lately. I’ve been less consistent with my days, since recently switching to going only 3-4 days a week. I missed a few chances to go here and there for the past couple weeks. Now when I go, I get pretty sore afterwards, as one does when starting to work out a new exercise. I also am a little weaker than before when I was going more consistently and more often; my weights for some of my lifts have gone down. It is something that I have to work hard with for awhile to get back on track to where I was before, but it shouldn’t be too much.

What I’d Like to Improve On


If you’ve been following up with my blog posts, you’ll know that I have decided to start a 30 day writing challenge (challenge provided at the bottom of this post). This is the twenty-sixth post of the 30 from that challenge, all in hopes to get me back into my writing. Wish me luck!


Day 26: Write about an area in your life that you’d like to improve

I think I should improve in my ability to socialize, communicate, and interact with others. I am easy to talk to, once I am comfortable enough with people, like my friends and family. However, I tend to be shy and easily intimidated when it comes to speaking with people that may as well be strangers. (Reasons why I suck at interviews). I think, if I improve in these areas, I will improve as a person. I would be more outgoing and I wouldn’t have to try so hard in certain times. The hard part is getting there. I don’t know how I will manage to do this, considering it’s taken me a couple years as an adult to even get to where I am now in my social skills. If you have any tips, please let me know! I know I can always “try harder” or “just be bubbly,” but trust me, it’s way easier said than done. But, who knows. Maybe in another couple years, I’ll be where I strive to be socially.
