Small Goals // October.

Another month, another set of small goals! September was not my best month for goal, but fall is always busy for me so I don't feel too bad about my lack of success. That said, here's how I did last month:

1 // Make my bed every day. 
Success! This is such a simple goal but one that makes me feel so productive. Love that this is apart of my daily routine.

2 // Work out 1-2 times a week.

Fail. It'll happen when it needs to. At least, that's what I keep telling myself!

3 // Pack a lunch 5x a week. 

Fail. I actually have changed my eating habits this month in a different way, so I'm not too disappointed about this one.

4 // Sort out my book situation. 

Ahhhh, nope. This one slipped away from me. Honestly, it's such a daunting thought to drag all of my books to the used book store that I haven't even thought about it much. Oops!

5 // No more shopping for clothes.

Okay, so this is a technical fail but I'm so happy with my shopping habits this month that I'm gonna call it a win. I only grabbed a few pieces (that I really love!) and am feeling really good about my relationship with clothing. So, win?

Okay, 2 out of 5-- not horrible but not great. I wasn't nearly as in tune with my small goals this month as I have been in the past. It happens. Here's what's on my plate for October.

1 // Continue with Weight Watchers and only skip 2 days this month. 
So, as I alluded, I changed my eating habits this month as I joined Weight Watchers! My dad convinced me to do it and things have been really go so far. I hit a 3 week slump and fell off the track but I'm back in check and am feeling good. I hope to keep this us (and well) this whole month!

2 // Spend more time listening.
I watch a lot of things, mostly YouTube and TV shows. While I do want to keep up with things-- Brooklyn 99 is back, I need to start This is Us, and I am knees deep in a Big Love binge watch-- I want to spend some quality time with Spotify and my podcast app. It's a nice change of pace and one I'm hoping to really enjoy this month.

3 // Find a really cool hat. 
I never thought I could be a hat person, but after a haircut featuring some new bangs, I've been feeling this hat trend. I'm hoping to locate either a cute and classic baseball hat or a cool felt floppy hat. I'll be sure to share my finds with you as they come!

That's it! I'm keeping it short and sweet for the month because I've got a lot going on school and work wise. 

What are your goals for October?

Striped Intentions is laying on your bed, soaking in the sunlight. It's the shadows made by the blinds, lined up and down the sheets. It's wearing a striped shirt every day and not giving a damn. It's the constant search for "effortless chic"-- whatever that is-- and taking care of what you present to the world.
Too, Striped Intentions is a place to feel at home. No matter what you look like or feel like or do with your life, it's a space to appreciate life and all it's tiny details. It's having the best intentions with everything-- as striped with flaws as they may be.
