Hey there! The weekend is already approaching and I hope you have some plans and activities you’re looking forward to. Today I wanted to share some little life updates that are happening to me this summer.
I recently finished my spring semester of school, it ended April 27 and since then I’ve been home. Since I’ve arrived back at home, I have been enjoying time with family and friends. It’s been nice to give myself three weeks to relax, chill, and do absolutely nothing some days! I knew I needed to give myself a short break because starting the end of May all the way to the middle of August, I will be super busy this summer. Keep reading to find out all the changes coming my way this summer!
During the school year I took 5/6 classes each semester (fall & spring semester each). This summer I will only be taking 2 classes. I debated for the longest on whether or not I would take any summer classes at all. I am happy that I decided to go ahead and take 2. I’m only taking 2 classes because the summer semester is very short (only 2 months compared to 4). I will be taking psychology and human communication both online.
When I am not occupied with school work I will be working a job. I previously worked at a restaurant, however, once I became a full time student I ended my job. Now since I am only taking 2 classes, I will be able to have time for a job. I am excited to be back making money. School is very important to me, however, my goal for the summer was mainly to work. So far I am working 20-30 hours a week at a store. This is very doable with my school schedule.
Because I am planning to work a lot this summer and I have classes, I am limited to taking vacations. Normally my family and I go on small vacations throughout the summer, I will be able to go sometimes, but may not make all of them. I really do hope I can go to the beach this summer because I it’s one of my favorite places and plus I need some sun!
My Blog Theme
Back in January once I hit 1,000 follwers I announced I was going to self host my blog and redo my theme. This is something I’ve been considiering for a while and I knew I could do it myself. I was really excited to finally do this. However, being in school really hit me. All my time and free time had to go to my studies and I was not able to update my blog. Since I am done with that semester and have more available time, this summer I hope to update my blog like I had once hoped. Definitely be on the lookout for something new and exciting happening on Girly Treasures!
I am definitely interested in taking my blog in a new direction and increase everything I am doing now. I am updating my blog in-addition to updating my content. Instead of posting once a week, I hope to start posting twice. I also am in the process of working with some exciting companies to start reviewing new products. If I am not talking about new beauty and makeup products then I want to increase my lifestyle post. I enjoy talking about and sharing my life with others and I hope to do this with more post centered around this topic.
Selling my clothes
This fall I am living in an apartment style dorm once I go back to school. I will have my own space and I am very excited! However, this summer I need to start making room for all of my stuff. Therefore, this is the perfect time to get rid of some of my clothes and in the process make some extra money. I will be selling a lot of my clothes on Mercari & Posmark. These are the apps that I use to make money by selling my clothes, shoes, and accessories. I like being able to control and interact with people with my personal items. I can better explain to them or ask them questions personally. The vibe on these apps are amazing and everyone is so friendly. Use my codes and start saving & making money this summer! Posmark & get $5: BYHER Mercari & get $10: Kev986
I have a presence on some social media accounts now (Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest). This summer I hope to start posting regularly on these accounts as well. It can be hard maintaining my personal accounts, on-top of a blog, on-top of my blog accounts. However, I am determine to do better!
Are you making any changes to your blog now that it’s summertime? Let me know in the comments, I would love to hear your exciting new plans!
