project 12 | June

i love having my years captured month by month and plan to keep up with project 12 this year as i can. it's fun to look back on the details of our year at the end of it, as well as seeing how we change through the photos each month. :)

JUNE


HIGHLIGHTS
we started packing up our apartment so we don't have it all to do in July since that month is going to be craaaazy busy. i have packed up a lot of my clothes and my entire craft/desk/rabbit room so at least i'm getting some headway. it is nice to have some of the packing done, but also a bit annoying when you are trying to find something that was already put in a box. ;) we will have most of our things in storage while we live with my in-laws and look for a house towards the end of my grad program... so i guess i should get used to living out of boxes, huh?!

my second summer class started this month and it's going to be a lot of work in a little amount of time. it is an accelerated 7-week course that meets twice a week, but luckily it is online so i am still able to work! things are about to get crazy though, because i have sooooo much due in July for both classes plus my 2 jobs, packing & moving! but it will pay off, because getting these 2 classes done during the summer means i will only have 2 classes in the spring so i can free up some time to study for licensure! at least i keep telling myself that it will be worth it, right now i'm not so sure! ;)

we were on-the-go every weekend in May & unfortunately June weekends were like that too. by the end of the first week this month i was just wiped out and a huge stress ball thinking of how much i had to do but also how much i really, really just wanted to rest. i took a week off of social media because i was feeling overwhelmed by everything i have to keep up with for my life plus the clients i work with at my summer job... i just couldn't take anything else in for a while. i actually stayed off of everything for the rest of the month except instagram because it's a creative outlet for me.  i needed some white space and to drown out some of the "noise" in the world with our fast pace of life. i may take more breaks in the future, because especially being in a helping profession now, "unplugging" is part of self-care and a way to help me reset and refocus. i think that when society and technology changes, the things we need do too and i've learned this is something that i just need every once in a while.
