September Goals

september goals

This month is going to be my last one in my current student teaching placement and I am already super sad about it. I have grown to love middle school so much and I’m going to miss my teacher and the kids something fierce. However, I am excited to be in an elementary school for my last two placements! I believe my first one will be 5th grade… or is it Kindergarten? Ha! I know I have both and I know I’ll do both, the question is, in what order???

september goals

This post is going to include some goals for me because you guys know that I have to write it down or I won’t do it. These are the things I want to accomplish this month, whether it be blogging-related, personal, or just random.

  • Decide on a new apartment. If you didn’t know, I am looking to move into a new apartment complex as I have been having some issues with my current one and I think it would just be best if I eliminated the stress entirely. I am looking into one area that is a bit more expensive, but I’m hoping I can swing it.
  • Continue blogging every other day. This is seeming like it may be impossible with my schedule, but I am going to try to crank out as many blog posts as I can over the next three days I have off at my job. I’ll be at school during the day, so I’ll have a few hours after to work on them.
  • Spend more time with my puppy! My more dog probably thinks that I hate him. With me working or student teaching every single day, I hardly get to spend time with him anymore. I am currently forcing myself to stay awake just so he isn’t locked in his crate all night after being in there all day. 🙁 #horribledogmom
  • Spend time with my friends. I literally have been keeping to myself 24/7 here lately and it’s starting to take a toll on me. I used to spend time with most of my friends at least every week or so and now I can’t tell you last time I saw one of my friends, except the ones I work with!
  • Clean my house ENTIRELY. I have made a lot of progress with this and done a lot of steps to complete this one but I have yet to be able to thoroughly clean my apartment since I moved in as I have worked every single day, or been doing something to do with student teaching.
  • Finish decorating. Although these seems a bit pointless since I’m moving in December but I’ve got all my stuff ready to hang up and complete my decor and just never can seem to find the time to do it.
  • Successfully complete one season of Game of Thrones. As I am on season one, it will likely be that one. I am so busy all the time that I never have the time to just sit down and watch it, even though I’ve already fallen in love with the series after only a few episodes!

Honestly, I didn’t realize how ridiculous some of these goals are, but my life has come to this point where I have to pencil in time with my dog… that’s pretty sad. I’m hoping things will die down more after student teaching and hopefully, I’ll find a job just off the bat (although I’m not holding my breath as December grads seem to have the hardest time when it comes to education jobs).

What are your goals for this month? Leave them in the comments down below!

Blogmas Day 12 | Favorite YouTubers of All Time

YouTube is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time but never had the guts to go through with (I’m planning for this to change soon 😉). I seriously admire those who can get in front of a camera and just be themselves. I love watching videos of so many different kinds, from my favorite lifestyle and beauty gurus to gameplay for League of Legends and voice impressions. That being said, I’m going to share with you (as of now) my favorite YouTubers of all time!

#1 Laura Lee

This girl has slowly become my ride-or-die YouTuber. She’s hilarious, quirky, sweet, and GORGEOUS. I love all the different things she offers, from weird beauty hacks to makeup tutorials that slay my existence. She is one of the most down-to-Earth YouTubers I’ve ever come across. She even has shared how she went from being “fake” on camera to learning to finally be herself to her subscribers. And I think that this is what makes her so amazing.

#2 Jaclyn Hill

Everyone loves this girl. She’s easily one of the most well-known beauty gurus of all time. She’s been on YouTube for ages and has become a hit among young teens. She’s done several collaborations with brands–best known for her Becca collaboration in creating the highlighter, Champagne Pop–and she has done exceptionally well from herself. Being able to share her personal life, her backstory, and so much more with her subscribers is something that hits home with me. I always love when I can connect with the people I watch on YouTube. She makes that sooo easy.

#3 Shaaanxo

Another well-known beauty guru, Shan, is definitely in my top favs for the YouTube world. She is such a light-hearted and happy woman. I love the amount of creativity she puts into her channel. Although I love a good smokey eye, she brings life back into makeup. Everything from special effects to get ready with me videos, she’s got you covered. She rocks a bold lip and makes me feel like nothing is too unique for me.

#4 Brizzy Voices

Although she does some beauty videos, one that breaks away from my normal watching needs on YouTube is Brizzy! She is an amazing YouTubers that is well known for her voice and singing impressions. She can do so many different things that it honestly amazes me. I even used one of her impressions as my text tone one time (yes, I’m a dork). On a real note though, she’s so happy and lively all the time and makes YouTube fun again. Plus, we share a HUGE love for Harry Potter.

#5 Madison Miller

Although I did not discover Madison until around a year ago, I’ve quickly fallen in love with her. I remember finding out that she used to be a teacher (which is my career path) and I was so excited. She’s seriously so gorgeous and amazing with her makeup skills. I love that she is so generous to her subscribers, constantly doing giveaways, and always gives us the down low on new products with her famous “Dope or Nope” videos. I can always turn to her for an honest review!

#6 ThatGirlShaeXo

This girl has been a ride or die for me for awhile now. From everything to her weight loss journey to her battles with acne-prone skin, I relate to so many REAL things that she talks about on her channel. Although she is known for being a beauty guru, she adheres to what I consider a large audience with her various types of videos. I adore her beauty videos just as much, though! I love when she does live swatching and I KNOW that Mama needs a little forehead bronzer to make her looks complete!

#7 Laura Leth

Although best known for her “Instagram-esque” videos–where she just showing you everything without voicing it, I love her to death. She does AMAZING makeup looks and uses such a great variety of drugstore and high-end products, in my opinion. Her looks are what drew me in because her makeup always looks flawless. She even has her own eyelash line, if I’m not mistaken, and she says that she wears lashes daily so what would be more appropriate?!

And that’s it for my favorite YouTubers! Although I have many that I watch and adore, these are the ones that keep me coming back again and again (even if I stray away for a little while). I love them all dearly and could only dream of getting to meet each of them some day. And if by some miracle they are reading this, I might pass out. 😅
