Happy Wednesday! I’m having a chatty blog post for you, to catch up and tell you about my plans. I love doing these blog posts, especially if you all chat with me in the comments. As always, I really like to connect with you guys! I’m thinking about doing these once a month. Just like a little chit chat. So grab your coffee, a cup of tea or a snack and let’s chat!
So what have I been up to? If you follow my blog frequently, you’d know that I haven’t been as consistent in uploading. I wish I had been, but I had a big struggle to combine blogging with a full-time internship, a research project and just regular life. It felt like a needed two more days in a week to get it under control. So naturally, my priority was finishing my internship and doing a good research project for the company. And to be completely honest, a full-time work week of 40 hours completely destroyed me. I was SO tired!
I’m happy to say that I finished my internship and my research project. Everything went really well and I’m super happy with the results. I also loved every moment of my internship so I look back on a very happy time. My junior year of college is done, I’m starting my senior year in September and hopefully graduate mid-June of 2020! I started thinking about plans after graduation. If you know me: I always think 10 steps ahead. For now, I would really love to get a job in the online marketing world because I did my internship in social media and content. But, I’m also think about doing a Communications Masters. Who knows, I’m going to find out at the end of this year!

My summer is going to be such a good summer, you guys! I’m working for about 16 hours a week as a social media specialist at my internship company. For now, it’s only until the end of August since my minor will start in September and I think I need to fully focus on that. Besides those 16 hours of working during the week, the rest of the week is me-time! Or: blog time. I am so excited to start uploading twice a week or maybe even upload three posts once in a while. To be honest, I completely neglected my Instagram during the last six months and I’m planning on getting that up to speed as well. I’m excited to tell you about the progress I will make in the next chit chat!
My travel plans are fairly simple and I just recently shared this with you in my blog post “Where I’m Going In 2019“! I’m going to Barcelona in 1.5 weeks and to the beautiful island Madeira in August. I’m planning all the fun blog content to shoot and find out while I’m there. So you guys have the best content to read!

Talking about my summer plans, I have something on my mind to share with you. I love photography and I really want to take this to a next level. I’m thinking about building a portfolio on my website to show my photography. That’s not all, I really want to capture my travels in a different view. By video! I’m thinking about doing travel diaries and maybe even vlog a little. Super exciting, because I love watching travel diaries myself. It gives such a good idea of the vibe and the “feel” of the place. I do have a question for the people who know their camera stuff. I need a camera that’s good with vlogging and “normal” filming, taking photos and fits in a smaller bag. Please let me know! How fun is it to know that I have had my first trip to film a travel diary in our next chit chat?
Are you excited for my future travels? Follow me on Instagram to see what I’m up to! I share a lot of my daily life as well.
As I mentioned earlier, I’m going to do these every month. I think on every 1st Wednesday of the new month! And I have an idea for all of us. Personally, I like making small goals during each month. I haven’t done this in a while but I thought it would be fun to share our goals with each other! So here are my goals:
- I want to reach 500 Instagram followers.
- I want to upload 2-3 times a week.
- I want to get into the fitness game and work-out 3-4 times a week. Just because it helps me feel good mentally.
- I want to write down what made me grateful and happy. Everyday.
I’ll look back on these next month to see if you reached them. Now I would really like it if you guys share some of your goals for next month! Simple ones or maybe bigger ones or share your accomplishments from last month. Oh, and please help me out with the camera! I’d love to hear your suggestions. I’ll see you with a new chit chat on the 1st Wednesday of August!
