December Goals


November was such a busy month! I went on my first business trip, settled into my new job, and of course all the Thanksgiving festivities. It is officially the holiday and I am beyond excited. My apartment is something Buddy the Elf would definitely approve of. This month is going to be just as crazy, if not more so than last month, but I am excited to see what it brings. It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Here’s what I hope to get done this month:

  1. Finish school strong. I only have a little over a week left in my last grad school course. This course has been a killer so here’s hoping I can pull it off!
  2. Spread Christmas cheer. For me, that means Christmas cards (and my general Buddy like demeanor). Maybe you’ll be lucky enough to get one.
  3. Get consistent. I am the worst at taking medication as prescribed or even taking a vitamin (that I know my body could use). Time to get that daily dose of vitamin M.
  4. Learn some trivia. Since it’s the holiday season, I am going to learn the holidays of the major religions:Christianity (protestant and catholic), Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, plus non-religious major US and global holidays. AND I’ll be learning the capitals of North, Central, and South America.
  5. Create a morning routine Not that I have the evening down. Let’s see how the morning shapes up.
  6. Increase productivity. Italian is on the back-burner for now, so I am going to work on my productivity instead. I’m going to do one productive thing every day as soon as I get home from work. Be that unloading my dishwasher, vacuuming, or client work. No dinner or TV time until I have accomplished something.
  7. Soda challenge. My hydration game is strong. Let’s lower my caffeine game. No soda after 8PM!
  8. Move my feet. This month, I wanted to do a run or other event for charity. I missed the boat on The Trail of Lights Fun Run, but I’ll be doing Lights sof Love instead! Support my fundraising goal!

A look at last month:

  • Get to chatting. ✅
  • Learn a new recipe. ✅ My Friendsgiving was a huge success. I made corn casserole and a slew of other things.
  • Get those steps in.  ❌ 
  • Learn some trivia. ✅ I learn all the state capitals and order of the Presidents.
  • Create an evening routine.
  • Finish Duolingo. ❌ This is being backburner-ed until 2017.
  • Hydrate. ✅ My new water bottle did the trick you guys.
  • Collect can goods. ✅ Thanks to all my friends who brought cans for Friendsgiving!
