Bringing Back The Goal Posts: July Goals

Bringing Back The Goal Posts: July Goals

It's been a while since I did one of these posts, they were all the rage back when I started to blog. Every month every single blogger would start the month by laying out the plans they had for it and the goals they wished to achieve. A few bloggers still do them regularly and I adore reading them, they are so motivating and I always wonder why I don't still write them but then I never seem to actually go back to writing them and that cycle lasts forever. That cycle comes to an end today because I want to write up my goals for the month, I have quite a few things I'd like to achieve by July 31st so it is the perfect month to get back into the goal setting hype. 

1. INDUSTRY JOB
The first and most important one of all, by the end of July I would like to have an industry job. I have been in education for 17 years and I have not worked all those years not to get a job in the industry I am qualified to work in. I graduate with my masters degree in November and so getting a job just before I graduate would be perfect as I am finished classes, I am ahead of my dissertation schedule and I am looking forward to actually working and having a job in the industry that I am passionate about. 

2. GET BACK INTO BLOGGING
I haven't been entirely dedicated to my blogging schedule lately, life has been busy, I've been distracted by my university work and my blog has really taken the brunt of it all. For a while, I was even thinking of stopping my blogging career and just continue to use social media to interact with all my favourite bloggers but I love to write in my spare time and I love to be part of the blogging community so instead I want to get back into blogging regularly and spark my passion for it again.

3. FINISH DISSERTATION FIRST DRAFT
I am officially halfway through my dissertation, two of the main chapters have now got first drafts completed and handed into my advisor and by the end of the month, I'd like to have the rest of my dissertation first draft complete and maybe two or three chapter second drafts done too. It is due in the second week of August so I'd love to be almost complete by this point so I have two weeks of tweaking, editing and adjusting. 

4. BE MORE ADVENTUROUS
One of the things I really have a lack of right now in my life is adventure. I am in desperate need of some fun and adventure and I would love to add more to my life this July. I want to do new things, see new places and have fun. I've become a little bit of a hermit throughout my time doing my masters, so dedicated to getting good grades I forgot to have a life and I am over with that now, I want to have a life and have fun. 

5. WORRY LESS
I am a worrier. It is what I do, it comes naturally if I could get paid for worrying I would be a billionaire, but I am so fed up of over thinking the smallest things, of worrying constantly about things I cannot change or help. I want to worry less and enjoy more. I've always been jealous of people who just do things, they don't think about it, they are spontaneous and adventurous and that's just not me but that's who I want to be. 

What are your goals for July? Are there some things you are hoping to achieve before July 31st?
