3 Month Resolution Update

Resolution 1: Save up the money that I need to be able to pay for my Housing and Textbooks for the 16-17 school year on my own

I kind of already let you know how this one is going in my March Overview on Tuesday, but I'll go ahead and restate it. I've finally gotten past the training phase of my new job, so I've been able to go out on my own and really earn my paycheck! I've also been working out what I'm going to do over the summer - whether I'll be getting an actual job or doing an internship. If I get an actual paying job that would really help out when it comes to saving up my money for Rent and Textbooks, but I'm allowing things to just work out how they work out and I'll let you know what happens eventually.

Resolution 2: DRINK MORE WATER!!!!!!

In March I was AwEsOmE at remembering to drink water. I don't think I've ever been this consistent at drinking water; it's starting to really become just a part of my every day routine. For the most part, it feels really normal to be as hydrated as I am and it feels abnormal when I don't drink as much water (if I'm a few glasses short of my daily amount of water). The Plant Nanny app that I talked about in my last Resolutions Update has most definitely played a huge role in my being able to remember to drink the right amount of water every day to feel my best.

Resolution 3: Read at least 20 books by the end of the year

Every month I keep saying how I'm almost done with the book I'm reading... And this month it's no different! I'm almost done with the book that I'm reading! I also picked up a few new books that I want to read, and discovered a website where you can buy books from for really awesome low prices (I'm going to do a post about it, so keep your eyes peeled for that later on in the month!)

Resolution 4: Clean my Dorm Room every Saturday

This wasn't as easy for me to keep up with throughout March, which I think partially added to the stress and the lack of happiness that I felt. Overall, March was a hard month for me so cleaning fell to the bottom of my list.

Resolution 5: Stop Eating after 9pm

Just like the cleaning, I also ate quite a bit after 9pm just because I stayed up later most nights throughout March. It would be close to midnight and I'd get hungry working on everything that I had going on so I'd eat some popcorn or some other snack. I'm really hoping to be better about it in April.

Resolution 6: Snack less, eat actual Meals more

At the start of March I was beginning to run out of money on my school meal plan, so I tried not to eat as much in the cafeteria to string out how long it would last. For the most part, the food that I have in my dorm room is all just snack stuff so it was harder for me to eat actual meals because I had very little food to make meals with. Not to worry, I did put more money on my meal plan so I'm back to eating in the cafeteria like normal!
