As the eve of July approaches, I find myself reflecting back on this month and feeling like it went by way too fast. Did I do everything I needed to do? Did I see the friends I wanted to see? Did I live every day with as much integrity as if it was going to be my last? You know, probably not. There were days I just didn’t do anything all day; I stayed home, read, when I could have been productive… but that’s okay. If I was meant to have a lazy day be my last day, then that’s a pretty awesome way to go in my opinion =D
Enough of the morbidity though, haha. I’m really excited to see what next month’s goal is. This goal has really helped me to stay alert of what I need to do, and also helped me to consistently update my life. Which all you guys probably don’t want to hear, but it’s nice when I read someone going through a similar situation as I am. It helps me focus that much more.
Catching Up; June Recap: If I were to look at this month, I think my grandfather’s memorial really hit home. I saw my family, had a sense of finality about my grandfather’s death, and saw just how far we came in one year. It was very cool how over his death… my family became that much closer with my grandmother; it’s funny how that happens. I got caught up with some friends I literally have not spent time with in over a year. It was a good month. And we still have six more days left of it, which is totally a blessing in itself.
Forging Ahead: Who knows what the next six days have to offer? And who knows about July? All I can say is that I’m excited for the new challenge!
It feels like just the other day, I added this in the last week of May! Has that much time really gone by? Sometimes, my friends, time scares me to death.
While I’m not dreading the passage of time, I’ve been trying to do some things on my super fantastic 43 Things list. I’ll give a quick update on a few: Stop talking aboout people is actually going swimmingly. Don’t get me wrong, I do talk about people behind their backs (yes, sometimes in a negative matter) but the reason why I’ve made progress is that I’m conscious of doing it now. Before, it wasn’t even a thought in my mind. Now, I’m more hesitant. A huge step, in my opinion.
I’ve taken a step to start leaving notes in library books. Mainly quotes, but that might change in the future. I look forward to going once a week, because usually I stick one in there. I think by the end of this month, I can declare this goal done.
I think that’s about it, really. I still look at my goals.. they make me think. Some just can’t be done at the moment, and that’s okay.
As far as catching up goes, my previous statement about “catching up with old friends” is becoming more prevalent. I’m meeting with a friend I haven’t seen in a year and who coincidentally happens to be my second cousin. I’m excited to see her again.
Wish you all the best this week! Good luck!
I’ve been all over the place. As far as getting my 43 goals done, that’s pretty much been a negative. I’m far too lazy to go on the computer during the day and when I do, I usually steer away from 43Things because I’m like, “Ughh I don’t want to be reminded what I still need to do.” Of course, things are being done, but only in their own time.
My short term goals are going quite nicely. As far as meeting with my friends that I mentioned in previus entries, that’s been a positive. I feel really good about this month. I’ve done a lot, felt a lot so far, even though I really don’t have much to show for it, haha.
Oh well. Hope everyone else is doing okay.
It’s going pretty good so far, I just can’t believe that it’s June. We’re halfway through the year! In 6 months, we’ll be preparing ourselves for the Winter holidays.
Caught up with a few old friends at the concert and it was good to see them. Especially the friends that were a grade behind me. It was nice to see them in the spotlight for their last year at the high school.
My forging ahead aspect of this goal is faltering, however. I am continuously sick with a chest cold and it has yet to let up. I have not exercised in a week and it’s annoying me so badly, but I know I need to feel a little bit better before I jump into it again and my eating has suffered as well, although there are more fruits and veggies in the house. Spiritually I am good—I keep trucking along and I feel more alive lately than I did during the year.
Despite my physical ailments, I feel pretty good.
I meant to make an entry every day in June, but so far that doesn’t seem like it’s going to happen, haha. I’m meeting up with a friend I haven’t seen since my graduation party in July, so I’m really excited. It’s part of my catching up that I have been doing, in the literal sense. Today is the high school concert so hopefully I can reconnect with some people I left behind after I graduated.
As far as forging ahead, I think some of my goals need to be crossed of my 43 things list. They’ve just been lingering on the list far too long. Some goals I know I can complete by the end of June: leave flowers on the grave of a stranger, clean (the whole house; give it a good wipedown), and disclose 43 random things about myself. I need to get more done—forge ahead!!
Hope everyone’s first few days of June are going well; bit rainy here but hopefully it will clear up soon. =]
One year since last June that I graduated high school! I haven’t seen any older friends during any of that time, so my goal is to catch up with my friends whom I haven’t seen in about a year. What perfect month to do that then in June, start of Summer, start of a new beginning!
I already made a list for all the house things that I want to accomplish, like cleaning out the basement once and for all as well as giving my bedroom a good cleaning. Can never clean that room too much.
I’m looking forward to June. Nice weather, good people, and hopefully I can reconnect with some old friends!
