December 2016

Hey everyone! Happy December! Last month, I decided I was going to start setting short-term (read: monthly) goals and a TBR for myself in an attempt to be more productive, organized, and prepared and to also try to be less stressed. Overall, I missed the mark on most of my November goals BUT I did improve a lot on things that I needed to. I prefer not to wallow in the failure and as such have decided not to go through detailed progress (also, I didn’t realize I should probably do a wrap-up for November and goals for December separate until it was too late). For now, I will leave you all with what I hope to accomplish this month!



  1. “Theme” my bookstagram (brainsbooksandbrawn it’s a little haphazard now so I’d like to introduce some continuity)
  2. Post to my bookstagram 3-4x/week
  3. Post here 3x/week
  4. Spend time commenting 2-3x/week
  5. Finish my December TBR (see below)
  6. Get caught up on ALL my cross-posting


  1. Save $350
  2. Make a meal plan every week
  3. ▲water    ▼coffee
  4. Stretch/mobility work 15 mins/day
  5. 3 items off my TBW list
  6. Get rid of any clothes I no longer wear (donate those that are in good condition)
