Maximize Your Month Link-Up | July 2015 Goals

July 2015 GoalsHello everyone! Welcome to our first Maximize Your Month Link-up. I’m super excited to be co-hosting this link-up with Esther, Lindsay, Mariah, and Shannon. We figured this would be a great way for us to build a community and support each other in our goals. I hope you’ll join us for this monthly link-up.

Thoughts/updates this months:

  • I went to Caltech for the first time for a friend’s wedding. It was a beautiful wedding. One of my favorite part was when the bride and groom was giving thanks to their parents during the ceremony. The groom did a formal Korean bow to his parents, which was really touching.
  • Training started for me! Last week was my first time teaching in front of students and I felt a bit mayhem. It was definitely an emotional roller coaster for me.
  • I’m sure you’ve heard that the Supreme Court ruled same-sex marriage a right. What a historical moment. The timing was just perfect, right before pride weekend. It’s a bit disappointing though to hear people twittering that they want to move out of the US because of this ruling.

Last month’s goals:

  1. Complete month 6 of #365DaysOfTruth plan. I’m 9 days behind :/
  2. Pass the calculus test. I won’t find out until next week. Pray for me!
  3. Read one book this month. Haven’t done this yet :/
  4. Workout once a week. Does leading a fitness class count?
  5. Blog once a week. This obviously did not happen. I seriously do not have anytime to myself this month :/
  6. Turn in my homework assignment on time. Yes! Completed!
  7. Spend below the new calculated budget. Yes! Done!

This month’s goals:

  1. Complete month 7 of #365DaysOfTruth plan.
  2. Turn in 3 of my homework assignments on time.
  3. Blog once a week.
  4. Workout once a week.
  5. Learn how to play kakuro puzzle.

  • what’s kakuro puzzle.. is it similar to sudoku? 🙂 and you lead a fitness class? what class? i would say that counts!

    • Kakuro puzzle is more similar to a crossword puzzle but it involves math and number. I led a fitness class for the school I’m training at. We did circuit training, capture the flag, and basketball.

  • Ooo yeah, kakuro sounds intriguing. I’m going to have to check out that #365DaysOfTruth too! Sounds fun! 🙂

    • #365DaysOfTruth is pretty cool app that you can always read whenever you have some down time 🙂

  • Good luck with your goals this month! The donuts are so cute! What is a kakuro puzzle? I’m going to have to Google that. 🙂

    • Thank you! I know! I can’t resist cute stuff 🙂 Kakuro puzzle is similar to a crossword puzzle but it involves math and numbers.

  • I love the piggy latte art, how cute!! I bet it was so awesome to be in SF this weekend! Best of luck on your July goals!!

    • I know! I love coffee art! Thank you for the support!

  • Oh my gosh, those doughnuts though…

    Good luck on your goals this month! We have some similar ones – mainly blogging and exercise; I am such a terrible blogger at times, even though I enjoy it so much. And good luck with your calculus test too 😀

    • I know!! Aren’t the donuts so cute?! I can’t resist cute stuff 🙂

      Thanks so much for your support! Haha blogging and working out is so hard when you have other competing priorities. We can do it!! We have to motivate each other!! Good luck with your goals!! You can do it!!

  • I need those donuts in my life – they are SO cute! Wishing you all the best on your goals for this month! I need to join you on the working out one – I’ve been on the road so much, my fitness plan has totally gone off track!

  • Hi – I found you through the linkup and I’m looking forward to seeing more of your blog. I did find it funny that one of my goals for the month is a month ban on playing games like Kakuro because I’m too addicted to them and your goal is to learn to play it. I hope you enjoy it and manage to meet your other goals too. Oh, and I love the pig in a coffee photo!
