Day 8: Short term goals for this month and why

Unfortunately the month of February is so short that I haven’t been able to adress this post at all so I will be making some goals for the next month and their explanation.

For starters I will will try to complete this 30 day blog challenge… (If you click that link, it will send you to the other posts)

Secondly I will try to complete the first module of my upgrade ESL teaching certificate. I’m stuck in the grammar module, and as a non-native speaker of English, it’s taking me a little bit more time to remind myself of the actual rules and explanations of the complex thing that we call the English language. I have until July to complete 3 modules, so it’s totally doable.

Thirdly I will research new furniture for my room because my under-sized single bed seems to not be cutting it. I’m sick of my feet hanging off the edge when I fall asleep, and in the winter this isn’t good because it’s cold in my room! I’ve thought about it, and the practicality of getting a queen bed isn’t very good, because ultimately it’s just me (and I don’t expect anyone else to need to share my bed), but also because there isn’t much room in my bedroom to allow for a bed of this size. It will eventually be an investment for my future, if anything.

Fourthly, I will actively try to take more care of my skin. I have a bunch of skin care products that I’ve been avoiding because I just seem to forget to use them, and they start to build up. I have an entire shelf worth of things, and I need to get rid of a lot of the stuff. This may include body butter from The Body Shop, exfoliants, scrubs, sea salts from the dead sea, and miscellaneous other products (of which I have to many!).

Fifthly, I’m going to start my regime again at the gym and do yoga on days that I don’t go to the gym. This means that Monday, Wednesday, Fridays I will go to the gym (and use the membership that I’ve been paying but haven’t used for months…), and the nights that I have other things like Tuesday and Thursday I can do yoga in lieu of the exercise. I think this will end up good, because basically I need to get a hot body fast for the summer for once. I’m going to several weddings, so I have to be in tip-top shape.

I think that should be good enough for March!
