It’s the beginning of September and I’m already counting down until Halloween. I’m thinking about going back to California for Halloween to chill with my lady friends and find some freaks. It’s one of my favorite past times!

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays of the year and I usually go all out. I mean, why give up any opportunity to dress up completely ridiculously and have it be completely socially acceptable? Far be it from me.

While I’ve been foaming at the mouth in jealousy over Laura’s Carnival paraphernalia, I’ll have to console myself with Halloween festivities. This year, since Halloween lands on a Sunday, there will be Friday night parties, Saturday night parties, Sunday night parties, and an excuse to dress up to work on Monday morning. Awesome.

So, Operation Halloween Hotness starts in September, i.e. now. Without further ado, here are my September goals:

1. Keep Owning It: In the last week or so I’ve done a bunch of the things that I usually want to but second guess because “What will people think!?!?!?” Today I have feathers in my hair and sorry I’m not sorry but they look freaking awesome. Thanks, Rachel, for the inspiration!

2. Exercise at least four times a week: With the hellacious schedule a month gone I have no excuse and I really do want to keep changing my body. It isn’t just a “I should do this so I have to,” I have a purpose here.

3. Get shit clean, keep shit clean: Ever since coming home from California, my car, room, bathroom, desk, etc, have all been a disaster area.

4. Develop vocational goals and make a plan: I talked about this pretty thoroughly in my last post so I won’t reiterate here but it is a goal.

5.Mindfulness: I’ve been casually been practicing mindfulness and staying in each moment but I think it’s a really good thing to focus on this month since I’ll be in transition.

There you have it! What are your September goals? If you don’t set monthly goals I highly recommend it.

Sound like you've got some great goals for the month…I will be posting my goals in a bit. I'm so with you on #1 and #4 this month. I need to just quit second guessing myself and do something out of my norm and not worrying about what the family thinks.

I wish Halloween was as big on this side of the pond. I think it's a great excuse for everyone to have some fun, but most people here just aren't bothered 🙁
