The Friday Diary: Goodbye May, Hello June

You Can Be the Boss by Lana Del Rey on Grooveshark

Happy Friday!
And also, Happy June!
Holy crap, it's already June.
Good Lord.
As always, I like to wrap up May, and look forward to June.

Join me, won't you?


In May....


All in all, May was a month of a lot of change.
A healthy amount of self realization, and hopefully the catalyst for some more positive change in June.

IN FACT, speaking of positive change, I made a list of June goals, y'all!
I know. 
You're on the edge of your seat.
Well, suffer in anticipation no longer!

In June I will....

Stop smoking....for reals this time. I smoked the last cigarette I had today, and I am refusing to buy more.
Stick to my ever loving, mother fucking budget. Seriously. I make one every single month, and every single month I fuck it up one way or another. Most of the time it's something small, like an extra five or ten bucks on something, but sometimes, and please don't judge me for this, it's ridiculously out of control. So this is the month! I'M GONNA DO IT.
Sidenote: I am taking my dad to Oceanside for his birthday on the last weekend of the month...BUT I BUDGETED FOR THAT SO IT DOESN'T COUNT.
Eat better. I've been getting better and better about the shit I cook. Making more fish, less beef, hardly any pasta anymore. But I still get so freaking lazy and eat out or order pizza more than I should. I'm going to be SUPER strict with myself and limit it to 1 fast food/pizza a month until I learn better habits. Then I might losen the reigns a bit. Last month I went almost 100 dollars outside my food budget, entirely because of convenience foods. I know. For shame. 
Work out five times a week. Minimum. I got a couple more work out videos {Jillian Michaels 30 day shred and Bob Harper's Weight Loss Yoga} so I have plenty of variety to change it up with and hopefully keep me interested. A guy at work asked if I just had a baby the other I shot him. In my head. In real life I cried and ate five cookies. It's time to not jiggle so damn much.
And last but not least, I am going to remember that happiness is a choice.
I've been through some super hard shit in my life, but for as long as I can remember I was always considered the happiest, most positive person anyone knew-except people who hung out with cheerleaders or The God Squad. Lately I've totally lost sight of how good it used to feel to just choose to laugh shit off, and have a good time, as much as possible, instead of letting every negative thing effect me to the deepest degree possible. 
It's Summer, damn it!
If this isn't the season to be peppy, then I don't fucking know what is.
So here's to UBER POSITIVITY. May we all be so happy, that we irritate the shit out of people who are having a bad day, just by walking past them.

Happy Friday. 
Happy June.
Go get 'em tiger.


  1. Quitting smoking is very hard - but VERY doable. I quit 5 years ago and I've never felt better! You can do it my friend.

  2. I can't believe either that it's already June. Time is passing so incredibly fast these days.

    I like your plans you have for this month. I know it's hard to quit smoking and I am sure you'll do it. Then you will also have some more money every month, which you spent for cigarettes before - maybe that's another good motivation.

    I really love your positive attitude, keep that, and wish you a wonderful June.

    1. Why thank you!! So far I'm doing good and I feel a lot better. And I think my boyfriend secretly likes kissing me more now that I don't smell like an ashtray :)
