June Goals

Sabra GilbertComment
Hey guys! Haven't writen to you in a while! I had a great wedding and already super miss my honeymoon! We had so much fun and enjoyed being able to relax for a few days before heading back into our crazy lives. Which it has been insanely crazy around here! I'm working and doing an internship for Bonde's Bouncin' B Acres (mini horses, people!!). We're still trying to finish unpacking and getting furnature. I am having a blast getting to stretch my interior designing skills. And if I may say, I feel like I'm doing pretty well! Simeon works a lot and I like to try to have things done by the time he gets home.

So goals went very well for May. Since they were so easy anyway! And so here I am to share my goals for June! I know I'm a little behind on the month, but I've been trying to work on these anyway!

Personal Challange

Sabra GilbertComment
April is going to be a crazy month.
I know it.
Its right before the wedding.
It's the end of the semester.
I move out of my apartment by the 29th.
I have a bachelorette party to attend.
It's foaling season.
There is a test or paper or project due every other day-ish.

But I'm going to add one more thing.
Out of all this crazyness, I want to find something that  I enjoy to do and to help me relax and remeber to smell the roses. I'm going to do a photo-a-day challenge.


I started yesterday and will be sharing the photos with you as well!

Probably Gonna Be A Rant

Sabra GilbertComment
Wow.
Time never stops for anything does it.

I feel like time has been racing ahead of me with nothing really prepared for the future. There is no time to stop and think about what I want to do and to make a plan, its mostly just jumping in head first and hoping that what I think I want is the right choice and just going with it.

This is happening with so many different things in my life. Wedding Planning. Apartment Searching. Job preparing (AKA college, but I wanted the power of three! :)). 

Wedding Planning has been driving me nuts lately. What happened to August when i thought I had a million months to figure everything out. To take my time making decisions. I was gonna be that girl that had everything set and ready to go by now! Sure I do have a lot of things done. I really do know that I'm making progress in this planning buisness. But my days of making a decision every once in a while are over and I need to step things up hard core! Start working on DIY projects for the wedding so I'm not killing myself with finals week and preparing these things at the same time!

Two months ago, Simeon and I started looking for apartments, but everyone kept saying they didn't show or know anything until January. So we waited. Now all of a sudden the whole campus is in a panic trying to get places set up for next year and Simoen and I are trying to figure out how to pay for an apartment and a wedding. It gets a little stressful really quick!

And then there is college. College classes. College internships. College decisions. I'm all of a sudden a junior and need to start thinking about the hard questions!! What do I want to do in a year when I'm about to graduate? Grad school? Straight into a job? Do i want to be a zoo keeper? Work with horses? Run around like a chicken with my head chopped off? Two years ago, I thought I had forever to make these decisions. But its impossible to know how fast that time is actually going to go.

Time truely just disappears between your fingers like sand some time. Now the time is going fast. But will it slow down when I get married? When I graduate? When I start having kids? I really doubt it. I need to find the time now to really start making decisions on what I want my life to be centered around. So when the time comes for fast and quick decisions, I have the groundwork I already need.

Well, this was just gonna be a quick "What I've been up to" Post that turned into a little bit of a rant pretty quick.

Thanks for sticking around :)

101 in 1001 Check-up: Part 1

Sabra GilbertComment

So this year, instead of the regular New Year's Resolutions, I decided to take part in something bigger. I started a 101 in 1001 list to work on over a long span of time instead of just a year.
To be honest, the going on this list was a little slow, and is still a little slow sometimes, but I thought it would be fun to talk about some of the things that I had accomplished this year so far to renew my want to finish more this next coming year!


Things I have Completed

1| Get 50 Followers!
This one I was quite proud of to be honest! :) I really do like to put a lot of effort into this little space of mine to make it be welcoming for others to come and visit as well as a place for me to share the things that I love and my life.

2| Get 500 pageviews.
This was quite the little milestone in my blogging life, but I was impressed more when just a month later, this little space of mine was hitting that on the monthly, if not going a above and beyond that!


3| Participate in a giveaway.
This one I was EXTREMELY excited when the oppertunity came up for me to share my blog, with the help of Paige's Birthday Giveaway. And give Krystal, 2 months of free ad space! Which on top of that she had already won 1 month of this ad space by participating in my survey, which can still be completed here. So you better to used to her ad since she isn't going anywhere for a while! :)

4| Have a Facebook page.
Now my little page isn't that active right now, but with the New Year around the corner, I have new plans for that little space. So you better go like it now to not miss out on anything!

5| Start a 2nd Blog.
I don't know if many of you follow me at my other blog as well, but earlier this year, I got engaged! Now while I enjoyed plastering it all over here as well. I realized that a space with the title college could never really grow with me into my bigger turns of becoming more of an adult. Did I really want college me to remain in my blog post line-up forever? Not really. So I created a new space that would grow with me more into the future I was making. Becoming A Gilbert.



6| Comment on 40 different Blogs.
This one was fun! I follow a ton of blogs through Bloglovin and that made this task pretty easy, other than only wanting to leave comments of value was the only thing that made this task take so long!

7| Have a legit homemade blog planner.
While it's not at legit as I'm planning for my newest one to be, it was quite good enough to get me through this year. I was pretty proud of my little planner that, when I did have the time to blog, kept me pretty organized!

8| Decide if I want to be a veterinarian or a zoo keeper.
I'm going to change this to zoo keeper/Animal Caretaker. This past semester I truely realized how much I loved just taking care of animals, and how much I truly LOVED horses.

9| Be a bible study leader.
This is another one that I am EXTREMELY proud of myself for doing! I have really been enjoying it and I'm glad that I did it now instead of later. With getting married in May and wanting to have plenty of time with Simeon, I doubt that I will be able to continue next year. I haven't really made up my mind about it. I really do enjoy being a bible study leader now, but it is quite time consuming!



10| Get an Apartment with Roomies
I love this one. It hasn't been the easiest road, but it is super fun to be able to run down the hall to my roommate when I have no inspiration to do anything else. Lindy usually puts me in my place.

11| Buy my 1st Car.
I thought I was going to be more proud of this one than I am at the moment. I am definatly learning that a car is something that you cannot skimp on or make rash decisions about. That's all I really have to say about that one at the moment.

12| Start a Savings Account.
I started it. But with this semester and getting married, it has already been drained unfortunatly. I am hoping that that will change soon.

13| Try Envelope Budgeting.
Tried it. hated it. Is not for college students on campus for sure!



14|Decorate my apartment for Christmas.
It isn't the most wonderfully decorated, but you can feel the Christmas spirit!

15| Try Three New Workouts
Between Lindy and Simeon always bugging me this summer. I was forced, mostly against my will, to work out. Some were fun. Some I will never do again!
