Violet - June 2015

I haven't posted a cat update for a while, so here are some photos of Violet! I took these last week when she was snuggled on my lap, and I was laughing so hard at her face that I was actually crying!
As you can see, she is the most perfect creature! What a face!

Exciting Things Happening

Hey! I am SO EXCITED. One of my goals this year was to find a vet clinic to do my work placement at so I can do Certificate IV Vet Nursing at TAFE...I had an interview a couple of weeks ago and just found out that I start next Monday!

I will be working 2 days a week 7am - 3pm. I am a night owl, so I have to start training myself this week to get up early and go to bed early. To get to work on time I will have to be up by 5.30am. Oh boy.

I have my enrollment tomorrow for my course, I start a bridging course on August 28 which will go for the last part of the semester and I will start cert IV next year. Since I will only be at TAFE 1 day a week I decided to do Cert 3 Animal Studies during the next semester as well, so I will have another qualification for my CV!

So soon, I will go from 1 day a week at TAFE and 1 morning of work, to 2 days at TAFE and 2 days working. My workload will more than double. I am super excited, and also nervous.

This may mean changes to my blog, but what it means for me is I have to be motivated and organised so I can continue posting. I actually want to post MORE on here, so I need to really work on my own work ethic haha.

So that's my exciting news! I can't wait to start working and studying more!

Fresh Start

I haven't done a goal recap for a little while, and my goals have just flown out the window and disappeared. I can't quite seem to get them back so I decided just to have a fresh start for the last 7 months of this year!

So, here are my refreshed goals for the rest of 2015

  • Go to bed earlier
  • Spend less time online
  • Walk Amos at night
  • Tidy house daily
  • Use planner daily
  • Happiness planner
  • Read daily
  • Drink more tea
  • Eat fruit
  • Eat healthy meals at the right times
  • Spend more time outside with Amos
  • Put more effort into blog
  • Concentrate on TAFE work
  • Craft  as much as possible 
  • Actually go on coffee date s with myself once a fortnight/month  
This may seem like a lot, but really all of these things are possible - I just have to have the motivation which is my main problem. I ended up purchasing the Happiness Planner and I am hoping to use it to help myself do all of these things. These things won't make my life perfect or make any problems go away, but they may help me be in a better state of mind to help me deal with the problems as they come and go.

I think it's important to reassess your goals and your situation as time goes by, I am not the same person I was in January of this year.

Did you have a good week? I had an awesome week because Jurassic World was finally released! You may know that Jurassic Park is my favourite movie ever - I reckon I've seen it 50 times - and I've been waiting for years for a new film. I am happy to say I really enjoyed it and will definitely see it a few more times!
JayJays have released a couple Jurassic World shirts - I need to go and check them out!
It's a donut beanbag...and I need it 
I think (know) this will be my next paint by number purchase! 
How cute is this Animal Crossing DS pouch! 
Mochi Things
Mochi Things always have amazing stuff. I love this pouch
Urban Outfitters
I reckon my cats would eat this, which is a shame because I loved these things when I was a kid
Awww - it's a little fox Link! So cute!! 
Have a great week! Go see Jurassic World!

Top 5 Instagrammers

I'm addicted to Instagram. I post a lot of cat photos on mine, and check it a few times a day to see what amazing things other people are up to.
The Dainty Squid
The Dainty Squid is my favourite blogger. She has the sweetest style and the cutest pets!
This is a recent find. This lady has 12 cats and they are GORGEOUS! 
Super gorgeous green haired girl who posts colourful and beautiful photos <3 
I got to visit this place for TAFE and I fell in love. It's not open to the public but their instagram is full of amazing photos of the wonderful animals they take care of! How cute are these 2! 
I met Kirbee at the Unleash Creative event I went to last year and she is so lovely. She has the coolest vintage style, the cutest bunny, and amazing art. Check out her etsy.

I wanted to include so many instagrams because it was hard to choose, but these are a few of my favourites!
