August Resolutions

I can't believe summer is almost over!!! And July has flown away with it. So a new month has begun, therefore it is time for a new post about monthly resolutions.

Finish Summer Bucket List
I don't expect to cross off absolutely everything, but I don't want to leave any more than 10 on the list.

Summer Reading
I still have one book to finish for required summer reading and then I need to continue to finish as much of the Omnibus list as possible before online classes start.

Start 11th Grade
Technically, online classes don't start until orientations at the end of this month, but I still get to take care of responsibilities at Rocky Mountain (brick and mortar school). 

Get a job?
I'm still thinking and praying about this, but I need to start raising some money so that I can responsibly take care of my parent's cars when I start driving them when I get my license, plus a few trips are coming around next summer which I'd really like to do, and my parents think it would be a good way to spice up my college résumé and practice for adult life. I have a few ideas as to where I would apply, but it's sort of a matter of whether I feel ready to take on that responsibility yet or not.

Publish more blog posts
I've been failing to post on here very often. I want to change that this month. 

Recurring Goals:
Music Practice
Scripture Reading
Diary Writing

I'm sure this month will go very well. Best wishes to you all in ending the summer and starting the fall!

Question for the Reader: What has been the highlight of your summer so far?

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.The old has passed away; behold, the new has come." --2 Corinthians 5:17


  1. I want to get a job too, but like you, it's really a question whether I'm ready for that or not. :P I'll be praying for you <3 sounds like you've had a great summer! can't wait for classes with you next year!!!!!

  2. I started working when I was only fifteen but it was for a gardening place that was just a couple miles from my house. Try and find something close and preferably someone you know or can be recommended. Best of luck finding a job and have fun rocking 11th grade! :)

    1. I've done similar jobs like that before with babysitting and watering plants and things like that. My parents are recommending that I get a job at the King Soopers which is within walking/biking distance from my house. My mom has met the manager and she says that he's really nice, and me and my family would likely get a nice discount if I became an employee. I think I might apply and see what happens.
      Thanks for your advice and encouragement. :)
