November Goals

btck9sjfnw

October was a really fun month! I kicked it off with my college roommate’s wedding in North Carolina, went to Austin City Limits, made a trip back home, started my last semester of grad school, and rung in the end of the month with Halloween. The holiday season is quickly approaching which means so is the end of the year. It’s time to get busy. Here’s what I am getting into this month:

  1. Get to chatting. My work goal for this month is to get back in to the Twitter chats I used to be involved with. I’m sure #AdWeekChat has missed me 😉.
  2. Learn a new recipe. In the spirit of Thanksgiving this month, I want to learn a new Thanksgiving recipe. I think it may be corn casserole but time will tell.
  3. Get those steps in. My goal is only 5,000 a day so it is pretty doable. Looks like I’ll be doing some laps around my complex.
  4. Learn some trivia. The election is days away, I’m so nervous y’all. Anyway, in honor of us electing a new President I should learn the other 43 (in order) and the US state capitals. Bonus points for learning political parties of the presidents.
  5. Create an evening routine. Now that I have my skin care routine down (and I hard wake up time), it’s time to integrate other steps to get me in the mind-set of sleep.
  6. Finish Duolingo. I’ve got to get it done with an extra 30 days, right?
  7. Hydrate. Now that I’ve replaced one drink a day, I hope to meet the minimum goal of 64oz per day. I just got a new water bottle from Target with an infusion compartment so hello fancy office water. Today’s special: strawberry cucumber. Share your combos if you have any good ones!
  8. Collect can goods. For my community goal this month I want to collect cans for a local food drive. And not just with me. I’m going to work with others to get donations up.

Here’s how last month went! Continue reading →

September Goals

IMG_4688

Well, August has come and gone. My first month of working on mini-goals is over and it went alright. I may have forgotten about them a few times but all in all  I didn’t do too badly. On to my September goals. Some of them are leftovers from last month but I will hopefully beat them this month!

  1. Find a new position or client I am super passionate about. Career goals defined, let’s do this.
  2. Get my Calligraphy on. I have all the supplies and love seeing other people’s work, hopefully I can find my talent this month.
  3. Find a pilates studio. I’ve got the Groupon so all I need to do is go.
  4. Learn some new trivia: Let’s go with the capitals of every European country.
  5. Create a self-care routine. BOLO for an article about this soon for Lady ATX Mag.
  6. Hit 2 more Duolingo check points. Facciamolo!
  7. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. My body desperately wants water.
  8. Get back to volunteering. Somewhere, anywhere. I used to volunteer at APA and would love to get back to playing with those pups.
