Happy October 😊! I am really looking forward to starting this month. September was a crazy month as I told you yesterday. Beautiful, exciting, partly nerve-racking, but a great month. Still, I’m looking forward to… let’s say, a calmer month filled with lots of coziness, happiness and good vibes!
I’m really determined to make October the month of blogging so far. Believe it or not, it’s my tenth month of blogging (!) and I want it to be a good one!
So, I thought I could share a few goals I have for October, a few expectations and hopes.
1st Blogging, blogging and again blogging!
Honestly guys, I’ve been brainstorming blogpost ideas the last few days and I cannot wait for all the content I have in mind for my blog.
I also really miss being involved in the WordPress Community. You are all so nice and passionate, I love talking to you guys. I really apologize for being so inactive lately, but as I said I had my head ‘round so many other things here in Canada. I was happy to post something at some point, let alone check any posts on my WordPress Reader section.
But this month I want to be an active member of the WordPress blogosphere, a good friend and reader to all of you!
2nd Being more conscious about my health
Fast Food is more of a common thing in Canada than it is back home. I feel like Fast Food here, is even faster and more convenient than in Switzerland. And I’ve been excited to try all kinds of Canadian foods and treats here which is great. (And I fell in love with it! Ever tried Poutine? NO?! You’re missing out…)
But eating too much Fast Food and Canadian candy doesn’t feel too great. I want to try to get back into healthier habits and routines. I mean, I still got a whole year to eat all of those Canadian goodies, right?
You might or might not know, that I really like drawing, painting, whatever kind of artsy activity it is. Give me a pencil, a piece of paper and I’m good. But I must admit, I haven’t really been doing much art lately.
In Switzerland I had five hours of art weekly at school, so I at least was “forced” to use my creativity. But I’ll only have arts in my second semester, and I’m not going to wait that long. I don’t know why, but I just need to “force” myself to do some art. It’s not that I don’t enjoy it, I obviously do, but it takes me more motivation than just sitting on the couch and watching Gilmore Girls.
So, come on Elena, use your creativity and fill one of the many notebooks you brought!
4th Improve my Photography
In School I now learn how to use a camera properly and I learned so much already in just those couple of weeks! I’m now determined to find out more about my personal camera and not just the camera we use in school.
There is still soo much to learn, details that make huge difference, small advice that makes your photo so much better. And it’s fun. It’s so fun to play around with all of the buttons, the aperture, shutter speed, white balance… It always sounded too complicated for me to dig too deep into it, but it only sounds complicated. Learning about photography isn’t hard, you only need to be committed!
5th Keep myself busy
I know that sounds weird, since I just complained that I want a cozier month. But what I mean by this, is that I keep challenging myself to do stuff. I was actually quite happy with myself in September, I agreed to try out loads of stuff with friends and at school, even if I wasn’t a hundred percent sure about it.
But, I just want to write this goal down, so that I don’t settle into a comfort zone and become lazy with spending quality time with new friends and family. I want to have a busy and productive month. Blogging-wise and Life-wise! I’m not terribly worried about that, though, I’m sure I’ll be fine. I simply want to stay as curious and openhearted as I was ’til now!
And there we go. That was it for today! Now it’s your turn. What are your goals, wishes, intentions for October? What’s going on in your life? How was your September? I’d love to hear from you!
Alright everyone, let’s have a fun 10. Month of OUT N’ ABOUT together!
I’m out and about,
