Memory Planning in My Happy Planner

I have a bin full of memories that I’ve accumulated over the years. Some I have from important events in my life such as prom, High School graduation, and my college graduation. I love to save cards, tickets, pictures, and other odds and ends. As I am purging my oversized memory box, my goal is to consolidate what I plan on keeping into one central location. I could create a scrapbook, but I wanted something more flexible which is why I decided to go with the Me & My Big Ideas BIG Happy Planner.

Motivational Monday | Change Is Good!

These past few weeks , no this past year has been filled with major changes and adjustments.  I left one job that for another and now I’m on to another one. From leaving one job to starting a new one. I have had to make changes in a shorter amount of time than I usually would, but it’s necessary. I have always preferred comfort over change. I won’t say that I despise change, but if I could keep things my way, why not?

2017 Vision Board

I love writing down my goals. It’s something about putting them on paper that lights a fire under me to get things done. For me it comes down to holding myself accountable when things are written down opposed to them getting lost in my head. I wanted to share my vision board of 2017. Although January is nearly over, it’s never too late to start a vision board.

Motivational Monday | Perspective

This past week was one filled with unexpected deaths. There’s no other way for me to put it, but then again when is death to be expected? Is it easier to bear when the person is a certain age? Is it harder to bear when they have a status?

Happy Birthday To ME!

It’s my birthday, it’s my birthday  (finish 2 Chainz/Yeezy bars). My birthday is finally here! I’m officially 24. Oh how I can’t wait to be 25 so I can have cheaper car insurance and not pay an extra feee to rent a car. The perks to look forward to. As I turn 24, I realize that I still have a lot of growing up to do. As I want to really enjoy my 20s, I can’t avoid and ignore wanting to be settled before I’m 30.

Looking back at 23, I wonder what it is that I’ve accomplished since I’m still at my same job, but this past year has not been a complete waste. I have found a new passion which comes in the form of planning. While planning is so much fun, it’s also become very therapeutic. I have been dealing with depression and anxiety for the past 10 years and planning, along with ASMR videos, comfort me in some way. I’m calm and it’s just instant relaxation. Planning just puts me in another zone.

I started my MBA in Entrepreneurship online last July and I’ll be finished sometime next year. I’m not exactly where I want to be just yet, but I’ll get there.

Cheers to a new year, new opportunities, and new adventures!

Statement Necklace Collection

I have gone through phases of what I have liked to collect/accumulate and now I’m on the hunt for more statement necklaces. I have statement rings that I have given away because it’s just not my style. I have necklaces with different pendants that will be in a future post, plus there’s my statement earrings, and then a collection I love the most my necklaces. The collection includes Juicy Couture, Jewel Mint, Aldo, Forever 21, H&M, Charlotte Russe, Charming Charlie, Wet Seal, and the thrift store.

Check out my collection below, labeled with where they were purchased.
