MONTHLY REFLECTIONS: OCTOBER 2020

Good morning. ☀️

It is now Tuesday.

I wanted to go over my goals for this month with you all today.

If you haven’t read the post, click here to check it out. Earlier this month, I wrote a blog post, talking about the goals that I wanted to accomplish. Some of them, I’m still working on, others I haven’t started on yet so I’ll transfer them over to next month for November.

Here were the goals that I established for October 2020:
• Create a vision board
• Have a fall outing with friends
• Document Fitober- blog series
• Read two books: one for personal development and one for fun
• Declutter each room in the apartment
• Sketch
• Keep a dream journal
• Have a Halloween Night with friends

Out of the eight goals I’ve written, I’m working on or accomplished four. Not bad right? Allow me to explain. Let’s start with the blog series.

DOCUMENT FITOBER
Even though I no longer have a category that says fitober, I’m still sharing with you all my health updates through the weekly updates. But, looking through my blog, I’ve decided that starting next month, I’ll give you all two posts in this subject: the first sharing where I am since I started September the 24th (click here to read that post), and then the second post will be an overall update on how I’ve progress over the month of November. It will be a challenge since we have the holidays coming up soon. And you know Thanksgiving offers yummy food and treats, so I’ll have to strategize on how to fight the temptation.

READ TWO BOOKS
My reading speed is still at the speed of a tortoise, but that’s ok. I’m learning from both “The Power of Habit” & “Living by the Book.” For next month, I think I’ll read one book. I probably aimed a little too high with two books for this month, so next month, we’ll take baby steps again, and focus on one book. But, I’ll share my insights with you all on the two soon before October ends.

DECLUTTER MY APARTMENT
I’m proud to announce that I’m almost finished with this goal. Saturday and Sunday, my family and I got the job done. They helped me out tremendously, and I’m not stressed, I don’t feel overwhelmed, I feel like this huge weight is lifted, and I just need to keep up my end of things, and maintain a clean apartment. With less stuff, I think that will be simple to do.

HAVE A HALLOWEEN NIGHT
On the 30th, I’m hosting a Hocus Pocus night with a few friends. I’ll keep you all in the loop on what movies we’re watching, the tricks and treats we’re having, and how you can host your own Hocus Pocus party for next year.

Well, that’s all for this morning. The remaining goals I will transfer over into November. So, look out for a November Reflections coming soon. I’ll check in with you all later on.

Happy reading!

Until next time…

A DAY IN THE LIFE- UPDATE|PART 02

Hey everyone!


So, project “Decluttering my Life” has been a success!


Still finishing up my bedroom, I creating a minimalist wardrobe for myself. During this time of quarantine, I’ve realized that I’ve only worn simple staples for work, exercise, and lounging, and it includes the following:


• Flowy Shirts
• Leggings
• Sweats
• Comfy Tees
• Flowy Pants


Honestly, my wardrobe for these past few months couldn’t be anymore simplified than that. I love it, I don’t stress over trying to find an outfit to wear for work anymore. But, I looked at the four totes that held my summer, winter, and hoodies. Shaking my head, I mumbled (and forgive my language) “I’m not going to wear even half of this shit, I have too many damn clothes!” This is a visual of my stress level over something that every girl loves.

Also, this shows you ladies that I’m more of a vagabond than a girly girl. I prefer comfort over style, my current wardrobe has some color, but mostly earth tones and neutrals. The positive to all this, as I was going through each item, I wasn’t second guessing, or asking myself the same question three times, if I knew I wasn’t going to wear again next year, three years, or even five years down the line, I tossed it in the donation pile. Don’t worry, the clothes that I’ve worn until there were mystery stains and holes that I didn’t notice were there, those were automatically tossed in trash.


Also, yesterday morning, while listening to Faith Church, the pastor was talking about how in today’s society, people are busy trying to buy the latest thing, or instead of tithing, we’re buying things and saving up on material things. He quoted Matt. 6:19:


“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal.”


From 2018 until now, I don’t know how many times I’ve purchased things from Amazon, Vera Bradley, and other stores, both online and in public, using my credit card. Earlier this past week, I downloaded the free app, Mint to help me understand how finances work and to keep track of my finances. A section of the app checks your credit score. Long story short, my credit is fair, but the way that I’m using my card is what is hurting my credit score. I didn’t know there was so much to learning about finances than just saving money. I’m still a baby when it comes to adulting, but that’s ok. This weekend, has helped me understand that I can turn things around now. I can turn all of this over to God through prayer, and I just need to sit back and do my part and pay attention to Him.


School is going great, my current class ends today. I need to finish my final project with Dad, and turn in my paper tonight. So today will be another hectic day for homework. I start my new class tomorrow, Scientific and Technical Writing. I’m a little nervous, but I’m still excited. This previous class has taught me so much, so I hope if any of my peers and my instructor are reading this, I want to say again, thank you!


My health is improving, both my blood pressure and blood sugar levels and improving. Last week, I did slack with working out. This week, is game time. Unfortunately, it will be wet, cold, and gloomy for the next few days, but if it doesn’t rain when I get off work, I’ll get out there and get my workout in. I have make up for missing six days. Food wise, I’m still doing well. Dad cooked some grilled chicken with broccoli and rice yesterday. It was very good, so we’ll both be cooking in the kitchen from here on now. He also mentioned that he wanted me to go to the gym with him. I giggled because I messed with him, saying that I’ve been starting my part since September the 24th.


Mentally, I’m doing much better. This past weekend, thanks to the family, it’s like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulder. I felt frustrated because I know I needed to clean, organize, and get things in order. But because I was working from home, taking classes online, and started my health kick again, I lost track of taking care of my home. So, I’ve written out in my schedule to make sure to keep rooms clean, if I use something, I remember to put things back (just have to remind Dad to do the same). But, mentally, I feel better. I’m doing ok, I’m going to be ok.


Ok, you all. I have some workouts and homework to do. I’ll check in with you all tomorrow for another blog post. Happy reading and stay motivated!


Until next time…

A DAY IN THE LIFE- UPDATE|PART 01

Good morning.

Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.

This weekend was a huge one for me. This was the first weekend of me decluttering my life. It all started on Saturday morning. I woke up with a migraine and an upset, so my original plan of starting on my room was put on hold for most of the morning.

Then Mom called me and came over. That’s when it started…

We ordered Denny’s to eat for breakfast. Then, room by room, item by item, we cleaned, and decluttered. Then Terrell came over, and chipped in to help us clean too. We started at Noon, and ended around 3. Terrell had to leave early, and Dad just came home.

We were all tired, and after Mom left, I started the task of my room.
Sunday, my morning started off doing homework. Around 5, I started back on my task of decluttering my clothes. As of now, I’m donating 50% of my wardrobe, and honestly, I still like I could give more. So today will be day three, and I’ll be finished and have only a minimalist wardrobe.

Well, I’ll be back with a part 2 of my weekly update for you all. Have to get work started.

Until next time…

START LIVING YOUR LIFE

Good morning.


We’re halfway through the work week.


Today’s post is inspired by a friend of mines.


After I got off of work yesterday, I had plans of working on one of my passion projects (be on the lookout for another blog post). Unfortunately, after working and brainstorming for half an hour, my stomach yet again had other plans for me, and I took things easy for the rest of the evening. Around seven, I left the front room after hearing the sound of my phone ringing. My friend Jared was calling me, so I grabbed my headphones, and resided in my bedroom. We talked about how things in our lives were going, and I mentioned how I wanted to work on transforming my other bedroom into my dream home office. But that I was waiting for the right time to work on it.


He told me that I could start working on it now. We talked for hours, with me leaving the conversation taking away the message that I needed to start living in the now. Jared helped me realize that night that I was playing things safe. If I continue to play things safe with my dream life, I’m never going to get where I want to be. I laid down in bed last night, smiling, because I felt like God was using Jared to talk to me. God sees that I’m trying, but maybe He’s showing me that I was wasting my life and playing it safe in everything, instead of taking a leap of faith and starting to live the life that I want.


This is where prayer comes in…


In my post yesterday (click here to read), I said I was giving God a year. That’s one way I’m giving Him a year. My prayer life hasn’t been great, I don’t pray every day like I should, and that’s why my stress flares up, I worry too much, I complain too much, I filled myself with so much negativity, that I wasn’t allowing positivity to come and override the negativity. It goes back to my other post, I’M ONLY A STUDENT, if I’m going to talk the talk, and I have to walk the walk. Yeah, I can read the Bible, but if I don’t take time to study it, and pray to God and ask Him to help me understand it so that I can receive guidance and apply those teachings to my life, how can I move forward in my spiritual walk? How can I move forward in my life?


Jared said that he had faith in God, and that he trusted in the process that everything will continue to fall into place in his life. If he can do that, and things are working out in his favor for his good, why can’t it do the same for me? If I put more faith and trust in God, than I do in the books I read or the podcasts I listen to, I know that everything in my life will fall into place, I have to stay consistent with it. If I’m consistent in blogging, I can be consistent in my faith walk. If I’m consistent in working out and eating right, I can be consistent in my faith walk. If I’m consistent in school, I can be consistent in my faith walk. I need to stop wasting my life, step out on faith, trust in God, and start living!
From now on, I’m giving God a year through:


• My Happiness
• My Quiet Time
• My Prayer Life

So, I thank God for placing friends like Jared in my life, friends that call you out when they see you off you’re A-game. But, they do it because they care. Thank you, Jared! I needed that. I’ll keep you all updated through this journey, and let me know your thoughts on this. I’d love to hear!
Ok you all, I have to go for now. Time to get the day started, but I will return with an excited blog post for you.


Until next time…

CREATING A FINANCIAL PLAN

Good morning.

Happy Tuesday.

Today’s post is an interesting one. As you all know, I’ve made goals for myself for the month of October. If you haven’t read it yet, you can check out the post by clicking here. Well, one of my goals is a goal that I’ve been struggling with the past few years, and that is being in charge of my finances. During my mid-twenties, Mom helped me with my financial plan and I was able to get my first apartment, as well as nice furniture. At this point, I did not indulge in the world of online shopping.

Then the year of 2018 changed my life…

It started with Vera Bradley, which then transferred to Amazon, and then it spilled into my current apartment. I was treating myself every so often, but it got to the point where I wouldn’t realize where most of my money was going. Thank you statements, you revealed to me the ugly truth. Also, I’ll be thirty this year, and I told myself at the beginning of 2020 that I wasn’t going to bring my financial burdens into my thirties. So today’s post is all about creating a financial plan.

WRITE DOWN YOUR PROBLEMS
The first thing you’ll want to do is create a brain dump or mind map of the things that you buy. Anything that comes to your mind at that moment, write it down on paper. If you know the price, write it down. I’ll use myself as an example. For majority of September, and most of this year, I’ve spent money on Amazon and UberEats. I can only imagine what my yearly statement is going to be like, but we’re not going to worry about that right now. Once I did that, I was able to work on the next step which is to create a budget.

CREATE A BUDGET
Next, you’ll want to write out a budget for yourself. To start, I wrote down what I would use my money towards (WISE SPENDING), and what I would stop spending. For instance, for food over the past few months, I’ve been cooking my meals now that I’m being more disciplined with my health. If I’m out with Mom, and we do go out to eat, I’ll use cash instead of my card. Now, I buy enough groceries to last me for majority of the month. I’m more of the healthy eater than Dad at the moment, so if I’m hungry, I’ll get up and cook myself something to eat. I won’t go too much into detail with this part because I think most of us know how to create a budget. If you’re unsure, do your research to figure out how you want to approach it.

READ A FINANCE BOOK
I read articles saying that it is important to familiarize yourself with the area of finances. Growing up, I really didn’t learn much about managing money until I got into early adulthood. Honestly, I’m still learning, but I want to be more disciplined in this area of my life so that I don’t mess things up for myself in the future. So, I got myself a few financial books to learn how to take care of my finances. Also, I’ll read the Word to see what the scriptures say about finances to help guide me in the right direction.

Ok you all. I hope these steps helped you. Again, I’m learning more about myself and trying to become a better version of myself and break away from old habits. I’ll check in with you all later with another post!

Until next time…

I’M GIVING GOD A YEAR

Good morning.


It’s another start to the work week.
I know some of your are looking at the title of this post and are already scratching your head. But, let me explain.


In Mid-September, I created my Monthly Predictions on what October was going to bring me. If you want to read that post, click here. Well, let’s just say things were off to a rocky start over the last week’s of September and I started my transformation right then and there. But this past weekend, something changed.


It started on Friday morning. I was watching a sermon on Faith Church that talked about “The Immense Value of Not Quitting” and the takeaway for me was that I could either give up or that I can get up. Friday, I finished my work day to the best of my ability and completed another workout. Saturday came and I explained to Mom how even though I was on Trulicity for 3 months, I wasn’t going to let it become a permanent lifestyle.


I also have been listening to some of my favorite Christian influencers and the messages have been revolving around the same words: get up, breakthrough, consistent. Then last night, I looked over my Passion Projects on Notion, and thought if I can commit to these things, I can commit my time to God, which is something I still struggle with.


One of the things I want to work on is accountability. After this weekend, and last night, I decided that I was going to give God a year. From learning to be content in my season of singleness, to reading and studying the Word, to continue to work on my prayer life. I know it’s going to be a challenge, but I’ve dealt with a lot of challenges this year so what’s one more. The things that produce my negative thoughts are my mouth and mind, so during this time, I’m going to talk to God and ask Him to change my mindset. I say it’s changed, but it’s caught in a loop cycle, and I’ve made that my comfort zone, which is not good.


I’m not going to let my challenges limit me, I have to stay committed, and what better way than to give my attention to God. Only faith, trust, and discipline from here on out.

I hope you all enjoyed today’s post today. I’ll be back with another post later on.


Until next time…

A DAY IN THE LIFE- UPDATE

Good evening.

How are you doing? Hope everyone is enjoying their evening and had fun yesterday with World Mental Health Day.

My week has been great. Class is still fun, however I was shocked to find that my teacher didn’t give me a critical thinking question during my discussion post for this week. Also, I’m entering my final week of class, this journey is going by so fast. But I’m enjoying it. Hopefully, he’ll respond on Monday, I enjoy those questions now.

Health has been going good too. Thanks to Trulicity, my blood sugar is under control, and I’ve changed up my eating habits. I realize that I get thirsty in the mornings, so having my water bottle next to my bed has been a game changer. I’ve gotten better sleep on the weekends, still trying to get my full eight during the week, work in progress but that’s ok. I’ve been looking over my tracker and the only thing I still need to work on is a skincare routine.

During my health journey, I’ve noticed my face becoming more oily than usual. It’s time to create an effective skincare routine, continue to drink my water, and take better care of my skin. Also, I noticed I haven’t been good at taking my vitamins, so starting tomorrow, it’s back to taking the multivitamin, Life’s Fortune.

So some things have changed:

  • Better and longer sleep
  • Increased water intake
  • More cooking
  • Less eating out/less over-eating
  • More exercise

And here are the things I’m going to incorporate:

  • Take multivitamin
  • Start skincare
  • Do more journaling

I’ve been reading, and that’s helped with my screentime. But, I still manage to come back and endless scroll. Overall, this past week has been a good week.

Ok y’all, the medicine has kicked in and it’s time for me to call it a night. Sweet dreams!

Until next time…

MY NOTION HABIT TRACKER

Hey everyone.

I’m back with another post. This time, I wanted to talk about my habit tracker. So the last time I talked about tracking habits, I was using the app Fabulous. Unfortunately, I decided to uninstall the app off my phone because I found myself not using more than I should have. But, I found a solution that has helped me since I returned from my weekend at Mom’s house.

For the past few months, I’ve been hooked on using the Notion app for… everything. I created a personal account, and an account for me to work on my passion projects. On my personal account, I created a page to track my habits, for the remainder of 2020 into 2021. I decided to create the habit tracker on Notion because I check Notion every day. I remember watching videos on YouTube, and I was helping a friend of mine figure out what was the best software to use when it came to creating databases. I told him that I would test out Notion and that maybe, he could use it for one of his projects. I’ve been hooked ever since.

I added a few screenshots here of some of the habits I started tracking. I started the tracker on Wednesday and that’s the good thing about me creating the tracker. If I feel like I’m overwhelming myself with too many habits, I can tweak the tracker to what works best for me. I felt like the Fabulous app, even though it was a great app, it was hard for me to really personalize it to my liking. Now, I’m not saying don’t use the app.

If you all are already using the app, and it works for you, keep using. I’m just sharing what’s been working for me so far. Plus, it’s not a full week yet, it’s only Day Three for me using this tracker, and if it takes 21 days to form a habit (I think I said that right). So, I tune back in with you all next Wednesday and then after 21 days, I will share my results on how this habit tracker has been working for me.

Hopefully, this post inspired you to either create your own tracker or if you’re curious, look into an app that fits in with your schedule. The important thing to remember is that you’re starting. Stay posted on “The Gabby Diaries.”

Until next time…

MENTAL HEALTH UPDATE

Good morning.

We’re back to Friday, and it’s a little bit of cloudy start here in St. Louis, MO.

But that’s ok, it’s still going to be a beautiful day. Today’s post is going to be an update on my mental health. So rewind back to my doctor’s visit on September 24th. If you’re new to the blog, and would like to check out the post, click here. That day, was not only a wake-up call for me to get my physical health in check, but it was also a wake-up call that I needed to keep my mental health in check.

Sure, I watch my favorite self-care influencers, and videos of adorable puppies most of the day on YouTube (that will never go away until I get a fur baby of my own). But I’m still asking myself “Is it enough?” Well, fast forward to this week. There were some days that were mood boosters. For instance, Week 03 of class went awesome and I got the highest grade on both my discussion post and my rough draft for my final project, so I still have 100% in the class. I’m really enjoying my journey with Ashford, and taking these online classes because I love taking the time to engage with my teachers and my peers, whereas before I was so shy and nervous about saying anything in the posts because I was scared of what people would think of me.

Then, there were moments that caused my mental health to drop. As you know, I’m taking Trulicity over the course of three months to manage my diabetes. Long story short, I was stressing out because the pharmacy was taking forever to get my prescription ready. I was scared that I was going to have to wait longer than a week to get it. I think I had two mini panic attacks. Then, Mom reminded me yesterday to not let these things stress me out. It’s amazing how she can’t even hear it in my voice that she knows I’m stressing over the little things. But, I have it, and I’ve taken my pen so I’ll give you all an update on how that has been working out for me.

So, here is what I’ve learn about myself when it comes to my mental health:
• I worry about the things that I CAN’T control
• I don’t worry about the things that I CAN control
• I worry and stress too much which causes unhealthy habits to flare up
• I don’t capture the things that causes these triggers in time

Here is what I need to work on:
• Take time to understand what my anxiety feels like
• Catch my triggers
• Write these things down in a brain dump, mind map, or blog post
• Practice replacing negative thoughts with positive thoughts

If I can rate my mental health over the past few weeks, on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being awesome, 1 being horrible), and I’m being completely honest with myself here, it’s been at a 7. I say a 7 due to the events that took place and the way they made me feel, but thanks to me getting back into working out again, the feeling doesn’t last long, and I’m focusing on other things again. I hope you all enjoyed this morning’s post, tune in next week for another mental health update.

I’ll check in with you all later.

Until next time…

SPIRITUAL GROWTH: MY STORY

Hello again.

I thought I’d take the time to share with you all my story on how my faith walk started. It’s a big part of who I am on this blog, and also a part of uplifting you all, my readers. I hope you enjoy reading this post and that it inspires you on your faith walk or to start your faith walk today.

UNIQUE, SPECIAL, AND BULLIED
Growing up, I was always the shy girl. I was quiet, and didn’t talk much. When it came to making friends, I would be shy at first, but once I opened up more, I was goofy, bubbly, kind, and friendly. I got along with everyone. I made friends with kids of different backgrounds, but that made me a victim for bullying. Some kids thought I was weird for hanging out with certain people. I was made fun of because I spoke proper English, and was called all kinds of names, names that followed me into high school. I was super nice, which led to a bully constantly and viciously bullying me until the fourth grade. My escape was writing and art, I loved watching cartoons, and to this day, I don’t think I rushing to grow up, I’m still a big kid at heart.

NOT ALL BOYS ARE GOOD
Once I got into high school, I had my first real boyfriend. At the time, it was real love. Unfortunately, that was ruined by the world of “He Said, She Said.” Due to poor decisions, I no longer had a boyfriend, but had a reputation that I never wanted to associate myself with. Senior year was the year that I got diagnosed with Bipolar 2 with Depression. Certain guys came around me for the wrong reasons, and if they didn’t get what they wanted, they threatened to tell the whole school of the things I did. Long story short, bad decisions caught up with me, and I got in trouble for it. Luckily, I was never a troublemaker in school so I never had a record. But the words and stares were like daggers towards me throughout the hallways. After senior year, I was ready to leave!

A CRY FOR HELP IS ANSWERED
After high school, some of the guys continued dealing with me. At this point, I was going to college, and working part-time at a daycare with a friend of the family. This was also the time where my relationship with my mother was going downhill. There were good days, and there were bad days. More bad days than good between us, and looking back on it, I can say that I put her through it. Then, on April. 22, 2012, I went to church with Mom, and I remember a girl sharing her testimony of how she was trying to turn her life around. The pastor asked “If anyone wants to turn their lives over to God, please come up and do it today!” With a face full of tears, I walked up to the front of the church, Mom came down and we hugged and that Sunday, I got saved.

WHAT NOW?
Once I entered the world of “Adulting,” I started having issues and setbacks. But I always find my way back and trying to stick with it. It hasn’t been easy, we live in a World that want us to have certain things. Instead, we need to live for God. I have come a very long way from where I was my senior year in high school, and during my early 20’s. I’m not the same girl I was back then. I’m working on loving God first and loving myself first in the process. I’m learning not to conform to this world, which is still a struggle. But, with His help, I’ll get through it. I’ve come this far, there’s no turning back now…

Until next time…

LIVING BY THE BOOK

Good afternoon.


It is Thursday already? These weeks are going by so fast.


As I mentioned in my last post, I was working on my goal to read more books for the year of 2020. Even though we only have three months left, I decided to start now, and carry my goal out into the following year. On my last entry, I mentioned that I was reading the book “The Power of Habit.” If you haven’t read that post, click here to check it out. I started reading it to help me improve my skills of keeping track of healthier habits, as well as improve on my personal development skills. Well, I have another book that I’ve been reading for my Quiet Time, and it is called “Living by the Book” by Howard G. Hendricks & William D. Hendricks.


Another thing I talk to you all about on this blog is my journey with my spiritual growth. Lately, I have improved on my Quiet Time, however I was have moments where I wasn’t sure I was grasping the lesson discussed during the reading. I heard about the book originally from the channel, Coffee and Bible Time on YouTube. One of the girls mentions that she uses the book as a guide during her Quiet Time sessions. She went into detail explaining how she would read the Bible, but wasn’t sure if she was full understanding the lesson and getting anything out of it. I started the book yesterday. Chapter 1 helped me understand where I was when it came to studying the Bible for myself. Let’s just say, I still have a long way to go on where I want to be and where God wants me to be on my faith walk.


After reading Chapters 1 and 2, it made me feel better that I made the decision to getting this book. I’m also going to be working on a special project for this month that I will share you all soon. I think you’ll enjoy it, and I hope it will help you as much as it helped me. I’ll keep you guys updated on how this book is going, what I’m learning from it, as well as my findings in “The Power of Habit.”


I’ll check in with you all later.


Until next time…

A BLESSING IN DISGUISE

Good morning.


I’m back after being away for four days. I spent the weekend at Mom’s again, due to having to do laundry, and spending some time with her and my niece, Haley.


Yesterday was a bit of a rocky start. Woke up, and my stomach decided to plan my morning out for me. 😖😣🤤🤢. Long story short, I knew I wasn’t going to make it through the work day.


After sleeping on and off until 10, I stayed in the front room and indulged in YouTube videos from Morgan Tracy J, Kaylin Nicholson, and watching reruns of adorable puppies 🐶 that I can watch all day. Most of the morning, I started planning things out for my Passion Projects, as well as knocked out my responses for school.


Then, I relaxed until five, and stayed in the zone for school until 11:30 last night. But, I think my stomach being upset was a blessing in disguise because it gave me time to relax and rest before I started taking on the daunting tasks of work and school. Also, I got to spend time with Dad once he got off of work.


I’m ok, and my blood sugar has been ok. I checked it today, and it was at 116 before eating which isn’t bad. It can (and will) be better so I’m still working on it and I’m in good spirits.


Just wanted to let you know that even when you don’t feel good, take that as a good thing. Your body is telling you that you’ve been working hard this week, and you need a break. Let’s take time to rest. So take advantage of those moments to either take things slow or just sleep all day. It’s ok, your body needs it. 😊


It’s Week 04, and I need to prepare myself for class soon. I’ll check in with you all later.


Until next time…

❤️
