Each month, I will be sharing my progress towards goals I have set for school, health, and this blog!

June Goals Update:

  1. Make extra $500 payment towards debt.  PASS.
  2. Prepare website for July 1 blog launch.  PASS. (This blog IS live, right?)
  3. Lose 10 lbs.  PASS.  I lost 9 :).  I’m more than okay with that!
  4. Clean out/organize closet.  FAIL…didn’t even start.  I got distracted with #1.
  5. List books to sell on Amazon.  PASS.  I listed 14 items to sell and 3 of them have sold so far!

July Goals:

  1. Release my first two freebies by July 15.  I’m working on my “Word for Students” Email Course and 10 Templates to Plan Awesome Research Papers with Evernote!
  2. Make my first blogging dollar!  Time to put something in the “plus” column.
  3. Plan my Word for Students e-book.

  5. Write editorial calendar for September-December
  6. Sell 10 things.
  7. Clean out/reorganize closet
  8. Walk 350,000 steps with my FitBit
  9. Lose 10 lbs. I’m on a mission to get out of the danger zone!
  10. Get back in the habit of my nightly routine so I can start off on the right foot for the Fall semester.

What are YOUR goals for July?

How to Write an A+ Research Paper Outline

Did you know that a solid research paper outline is the key to an A+ research paper?  You’ll want to spend a good amount of time on this step, even more time than actually writing out the paper itself.  The outline is going to help you structure your paper in a way that makes sense and then pull together your research to fill in the details.

How to do your Assigned Reading if you’re NOT a Reader?

Let’s face it: college reading is really hard. Grad school reading is super intense. This is coming from me, and I love to read. Always have. If strong readers get overwhelmed by a mountain of books, then what about those of us who struggle with reading, or just don’t enjoy it? How can you do your assigned reading if you’re just not a reader?


  1. WOW! You had an amazing June! Good for you! And I have no doubts you will be seeing your first blogging dollar in July. Best wishes for a great month!

    • It just rolled in – not profit yet, but something in the plus column!

  2. I’m excited for your word for students email course! Goals and lists have become a huge part of my life in the last few months. Thanks for sharing yours. A couple of goals for my July are to finish my ebook on sourdough bread making and nail down my weekly schedule. Blessings, Darie

    • Thanks, Darie! Your e-book sounds like fun! a friend of mine used to stay over sometimes while she was in chef school and we would test taste her bread creations :).
