I posted this on my other blog as well, but I wanted to post it here too since it’s relevant. I’m officially in spring break staycation mode with lots of (fun) things to do
So my staycation to-do list is as follows:
- Read 3 books. I’m way behind in my 50 book goal
- Watch season 2 of Downton Abbey
- Cut my hair
- Play tennis
- Do some sort of exercise every day. I’m so out of shape
- Try some new recipes from Pinterest.
- Choreograph something
- Clean and give away any clothes I don’t wear
- Get some new fun spring dresses
- Make a reflection blog post
- Fill out fellowship applications
- Get crafty
Here is the list of 10 goals I had for October:
- Perfect the pumpkin spice latte recipe
Read three non-academic books Yep.
Continue to work toward moving out and nailing down some reliable income source I MOVED OUT!!! And I have several part-time jobs
- Do one new thing I’ve never done before/outside of my comfort zone. I’m leaving the genre of this open to allow for more possibilities to meet this goal.
Do all reading for my classes close enough :P
Complete all written assignments at least 24 hours before they’re due Yes. Super pumped.
- Take two ballet classes
- Make my demo reel
Go to at least one fall-specific thing (some sort of fall festival, apple picking, pumpkin patch, etc.) I went to my local fall festival to watch dachshund (weiner dog) races lol
- Try one new restaurant
So looking back, I did pretty well. I’m super excited I was able to get a few job opportunities that allowed me to move out of my parents’ house, and that I didn’t procrastinate on written assignments (which reduced my stress levels considerably). I’m hoping I can continue on with my new non-procrastinator ways, especially now that I’m working 2.5 jobs that I have to stay on top of as well. It’s all about time management.
Just 5 super simple goals for November:
Finish all written assignments 24 hours before they’re due Done
Work out a schedule that allows me to get my classwork done, work at my jobs, and start exercising again 2 out of 3 ain’t bad
Take advantage of living in an awesome city/don’t go home every weekend. Be truly independent. so far so good, but I had to go home for holidays/work, but it’s a work in progress
- Do all required reading for class
Try one new recipe Vegetarian Thanksgiving was a success
