February seems like as good a time as any to share my goals for the year, no? Better late than not at all! I always set goals. It’s how I roll. Do you roll that way too? Well, 2014 was lots of hard work that made me a bit crazy (the proof of this is a plane ticket to Germany, for June!) 2015 is going to be…a whole lot more crazy (um, Germany?!) but also some of the classic hits – studying, working, blogging, making, combing Pesto’s tail, knitting, cultivating a garden full of weeds, baking cakes on Sunday’s, eating lots of Mexican and watching reruns of reruns of Friends. Plus all of these things that I want to do! I have a good feeling about this year (sometimes, even with mostly the same schedule, an attitude shift can entirely alter your perspective). Happy 2015!
Well, I didn’t think I’d make this a regular feature, but I enjoyed sharing my May list so here goes June. Plus, I think sharing makes you accountable. And that means crossing things off! I didn’t conquer my entire May list but I did poach a chicken, sew a skirt, go to Wellington and pay-off my credit card. Some things have joined the June list and hopefully I’ll cross them off this month. Are you a fellow list-maker? If so, share what you’re doing in June!
- https://www.topkidz.com.au/46045-cefixime-price.html Knit my first scarf! albendazole price Yep, still on the knitting bandwagon. Knitting is a bit of a weirdo. Like with sewing, you have your machine and away you go. With knitting, you need a whole bunch of different needles. This part keeps tripping me up. But I have found some yarn that might make it all worthwhile. Who isn’t crazy in love with chunky mustard-yellow scarves? Right? (If you know where I can get something similar in NZ, do share!)
- https://raoulwientzen.com/37839-candid-v-gel-price.html zoom in Decorating. еmphasize http://modul.nl/59107-dostinex-price.html I love interior decorating. I could look at pretty houses for days. Its hard times when you’re renting and don’t have much cash but I have a few projects I want to get stuck in to.
- capture https://kimmohagman.com/94673-lasix-uk.html Blog woohoo! You might see a few changes around here this month. There are a few niggly things I want to fix and some things I want to make awesomer (that’s a word. It means more awesome. Duh).
- Finish some little sewing projects (One kitty. One foxy brooch. Some cushion covers).
- Swim. I went for a swim on Sunday and holy moly it felt good. More of that please.
- Happy Pantry Challenge. Do this!
- Finish reading The Creative Habit. (I must sound like a super sloth-like reader. I’m just busy!).
And that’s my list. Its pretty random this month! Nothing makes winter more bearable than a big fat to-do list (in my opinion).
I’ve reached the conclusion that the older you get, the faster each year goes. This is a bit troubling considering I’m only 22 – maybe it slows down again at some point (I sure hope so). My life is pretty messy (as is my kitchen). My work roster is totally random and around that I juggle two uni papers, Happy Pantry and then the mish-mash of everything else – unfinished sewing projects, baking pies, running after Pesto, washing and naps. Everything is constantly in motion – half-finished, half-started and nothing is really ever finished. As soon as I finish one project I have to start something else. That’s how my brain functions. I think its an illness. Row says that’s why he loves me. Because of all of the above, I make lists. They’re my jam. I get lost otherwise. Lists make a fresh month seem manageable and exciting. Lists give me direction. I thought I’d share my list for May. May is a big month for me. It signals the end of my very first uni paper – only three weeks, one test and one exam to go! May is also the lead up to June, in which I’m taking two weeks off work (my exam is actually in June so this is for revision) and I’m going to visit my favourite bro in my favourite city, Wellington. May – you’re not shabby, stick around for a while please.
- Finish my first uni paper (and pass it ideally).
- Go to Wellington! (Flights booked, leaving Nelson on the last day of May!)
- Walk. I love walking. I want to walk as much as possible. For fitness and pleasure, not just as a mode of transportation.
Make an epic editorial calendar. Tick! I have a whole month of posts planned for you lot. I love this.
- Knit my first scarf. I technically kind of already did this, accept it’s not a scarf, its a blob. Take two!
Buy a pair of boots and get a haircut. Done and done and maaaan does my hair feel great! (And you can only walk around with a hole in your boot for so long).
- Get rid of my credit card*. So close. Bring on pay-day. I hope I do actually get to chop it up like in the movies,
- Sew a skirt. Or at least make a start. I think I’m going to make this. Or at least try.
- Finish decorating one area of our house. So many ideas, so little dollars.
- Poach a chicken! Has anyone done this?
*I don’t think there is anything wrong with having a credit card but it really really didn’t work for me and my income. So long!
There it is. May in list form. 19 days to go. What’s happening in your May? Are you travelling or staying in? Thinking big or taking it slow? Whatever it is – enjoy!
