Blog Post + Photo Everyday in May!

So I know I can be quite the sporadic poster - one week I'll be posting every single day, the next I'll post maybe once and it'll just be for a link up. Fail. I'm really trying to curb this habit, believe me, but when you're a twenty-something who's just moved to New York City, it can be a little difficult. Enough with the excuses though, it's a new month and a new start.

May always seems to be a big exciting month of endings and new beginnings. What does that mean exactly? It means that May is (usually) filled with the end of classes, graduations, the start of summer, etc. In my case, it consists of me flying back to Florida to graduate, then going right back up to New York where I'm going to be moving (again) into a new apartment, and starting at least one new part-time job while still job hunting for the right day job. Basically, real life is going to be craaaazy BUT it's also going to provide plenty for me to blog about! I've always prided myself on my time management skills, and this month I'm going to put those skills to the test!

I am challenging myself for the entirety of May to write one blog post AND post one photo on Instagram EACH day (I'm also going to try to churn out at least two Youtube videos a week, but that's another post haha). I am going to using the following prompts each day from Story of My Life and Fat Mum Slim. And don't worry, I'll still have other regular posts and photos as well!

Day 1, Wednesday: The story of your life in 250 words or less (or one paragraph... no one will be counting your words... probably)
Day 2, Thursday:Educate us on something you know alot about or are good at. Take any approach you'd like (serious and educational or funny and sarcastic)
Day 3, Friday: Things that make you uncomfortable
Day 4, Saturday: Favorite quote (from a person, from a book, etc) and why you love it
Day 5, Sunday: Publicly profess your love and devotion for one of your blogger friends. What makes them great? Why do you love them? If you don't have blogger friends, talk about a real-life friend or even a family member
Day 6, Monday: If you couldn't answer with your job, how would you answer the question, 'what do you do'?
Day 7, Tuesday: The thing(s) you're most afraid of
Day 8, Wednesday: A piece of advice you have for others. Anything at all.
Day 9, Thursday: A moment in your day (this can be just a photo or both a photo and words)
Day 10, Friday: Most embarrassing moment (s). Spill. 
Day 11, Saturday: Sell yourself in 10 words or less
Day 12, Sunday: What do you miss? (a person, a thing, a place, a time of your life...)
Day 13, Monday: Issue a public apology. This can be as funny or as serious or as creative as you want it to be.
Day 14, Tuesday: Ten things that make you really happy
Day 15, Wednesday: A Day in the life (include photos from throughout your typical day - this could be "a photo an hour" if you'd like)
Day 16, Thursday: Something difficult about your "lot in life" and how you're working to overcome it
Day 17, Friday: A favorite photo of yourself and why
Day 18, Saturday: Tell a story from your childhood. Dig deep and try to be descriptive about what you remember and how you felt.
Day 19, Sunday: Five of your favorite blogs and what you love about them
Day 20, Monday: Get real. Share something you're struggling with right now.
Day 21, Tuesday: A list of links to your favorite posts in your archives
Day 22, Wednesday: Rant about something. Get up on your soapbox and tell us how you really feel. (a pet peeve, a current event, a controversial topic, something your husband or roommate or neighbor or boss does that really ticks you off)
Day 23, Thursday: Things you've learned that school won't teach you
Day 24, Friday: Your top 3 worst traits
Day 25, Saturday: Something someone told you about yourself that you'll never forget (good or bad)
Day 26, Sunday: Something you read online. Leave a link and discuss, if you'd like.
Day 27, Monday: A letter to your readers
Day 28, Tuesday: Only pictures
Day 29, Wednesday: Five songs or pieces of music that speak to you or bring back memories. Use Grooveshark or YouTube to include them in the post
Day 30, Thursday: React to this term: Letting Go
Day 31, Friday: A vivid memory

Are you doing either of these challenges?
