HAPPY OCTOBER, FRIENDS.
read a book | I told myself that I would read 22 books before I turned 23. That's TWO books a month. Have I started on that? Sadly, no. But granted, I did write that ambitious list while I was bored during summer break itchy for activities. Now I am in a new city and work life has started, and that list is the last thing on my mind. However, I am a woman of my word so I gotta get on this now! :) So... I joined a book club! A friend from work invited me and it was perfect because I knew this would be the kind of accountability and social activity good for me. We're reading "Before I Sleep" by S.J. Watson (has anyone read that? thoughts?) and I also want to try "Gone Girl" since it's been so highly recommended.
no spend coffee | There's free coffee in my work (right on my floor) and free coffee in my apartment, yet I choose to go OUT OF MY WAY to a Starbucks or a Caribou, wait in a long line, and then PAY for my coffee. That really doesn't make any sense. Taste can't really be the reason cause you all know I drown it in cream/sugar so "that authentic Ethiopian bean" isn't it. I have no excuse. This month, I want to try to limit myself and not spend money on coffee!
digitize handwriting | This is just a fun, side project I had been wanting to try for awhile now. Especially when I saw Whitney Blake make fun wall prints out of her handwriting! There are times when I doodle something and I think, "man I wish I could just take this and rather than look for a font I like." Hence, digitizing my handwriting is here.
gym 1x a week | I just want to be healthy. If I can't make time for 45 minutes out of my entire week to do some cardio, then I'm doing something wrong.
host a gathering | Just for fun. (:
develop photos | Because I miss my friends and family and photos weren't meant to live on Facebook or Snapchat, but in your hands and in physical albums and walls so that when guests come over, you can bring the photos out to embarrass the subjects in them or break the ice if guests are awkward. Yes, that is the accurate history of photos.
create a moodboard | I'm designing less and doing Etsy less, so I thought committing to one project will keep my designing side happy for the month. And at the end I'll have something pretty to look at when I need a kick of inspiration.
YOUR TURN! :) What are your goals for this month? Share below, I'd love to hear!
