hot girl summer





  Wtf. That's the only appropriate way to start off this post because, honestly, WHERE IN THE WORLD DID THIS SUMMER GO?! I know, I know, typically around this time of year everyone is in denial that "reality" is kicking back in, but like, wasn't it just the beginning of May last week? lol.

  Right after I got back from my trip to New York life seems to be flying right past me! Between working and moving into my new apartment, it's been one heck of a whirlwind to say the least! During this fever dream feeling of a summer, just like every stage in life, I did learn two valuable life lessons along the road *well, two to be exact.*



LESSONS LEARNED THIS SUMMER

Summer of 19 you and me:  Even thought it felt like 102 and their was truly nothing to do, summer of 19 for me was far from the fairytale romance motif of the popular Dan + Shay song, and that was completely fine for me! This summer this was my first ever "single girl summer" since I was what.. 15? 16? It may be lame, but learning how to adjust to being solely independent after dating someone for so long is quite the adjustment! I can attest to the fact that time is really the best healer. It was nice being able to get back to my thoughts and prioritizing what makes me happy!

Budgeting: Taking into consideration that very soon I have to start paying for rent, groceries, etc. , I've been kinda nuts about saving my money. Instead of splurging whenever I get my paycheck, I take a big chuck of it and dump it directly into my savings account. Ugh. If only my younger self did this when I was working almost 40 hours a week.... oh well. I like to visualize the growing my savings as somewhat of a game to make it seem less mundane. The more I set aside, the more it grows!

Have a great week guys!
