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!

"Hard Pill" to swallow

Okay, flat out no description, film “Hard Pill” is really good and makes me sad because it reminds me so much about myself, weirdly.

I have watched 5 films in the last 24hrs and there are 3 more that are foreign that I’m searching for subtitles for. I really have not much to do and the weather is really nice.

What’s the answer to this delema? Go for a run! Yes that’s exactly correct, starting to day, I will spend at least 1hr on a run around town, and then another 30mins devoted to ‘strength training’, for example doing abdominal exercises, arms, and chest. What brings this on? Well I have discovered (after watching these depressing films) that my desires, wishes, and feelings are all just as valid as everyone else, so I am taking a newer outlook on life. I’ve got an alright body, just now I’m going to make it better, so that I become more desireable..

Yes it’s shallow, but honestly, do I care: no? I just want to do things to sort of change how things are going right now, and besides, what’s the big problem with being healthy? I’m not going to flaunt it or anything, but it won’t be difficult to do since I don’t need to loose any weight or anything. I will look forward to France, as I will arrive as this slender-athletic God, who all the while is very modest and kind. I wonder if there were any Greek Gods like that, or if they were all asswholes and were selfish and not modest.. Oh well, I will become one of the better kinds 😉

Oh and by the way, whooohoo for not getting any new crushes last few days. That makes me happy, and a lot less dramatic/pathetic as recent months where I just seem to get a crush on everyone! :DD

Band rehearsal is also tonight, wonderful since I was the only damn person in my section on Sunday’s Performance for some Vetrans association. I didn’t play poorly, but we were put on grass, which gobbled up all the sound we did have. So I will come in tonight super-confident with my playing abilities, because I learned most of my parts and they sound lovely. I just need to increase my range a few notes higher and then I will have complete range on the intstrument, and then can work on doing fingerings and combinations a littleb it faster.

Go team osky!
