We’re almost through the first 4 months of the year, and I thought now would be a good time to revisit my goals from New Year’s and check my progress on them. With my funk, I’ve kind of dropped back on a lot of my goals, but I’ve been working on getting myself back on my feet. So without further ado, my goals:
In a lot of ways, I feel like most of my life I’ve had nothing but setbacks. Goals for the future that were put off by someone else, or just never achieved. And you know what? It flat out sucks. Bad. Because the more setbacks in your life, the more you start to feel as if nothing is going to happen.
So how do you get past that feeling? How do you keep moving forward when everything is going wrong? Perseverance. Hope. Strength.
I’ve been at such a standstill the last couple of months when it comes to this blog, that I’ve forgotten how to just come up with a blog idea and write it out. Things are starting to look up, after all of this time.
So what exactly happened? Why did I stop blogging so much?
Spring is right around the corner! Finally. Winter is always the longest season, at least when you live up north. And even once Spring hits? It can still snow in May. There is little hope here. But we’re going to stay optimistic because warmer days are approaching, which means shorts weather and sunshine and the sun is already staying out later and later. That part makes me so happy! So in preparing for all of this, I thought it’s time to get myself back on track with a goal list, a bucket list, for this upcoming season. That gives me 3 months to get these things done and accomplished. The real question here, is can I actually motivate myself to keep on track? Only time will tell, I guess!
I went to urgent care last night. Left work early because I was so sick work was a struggle. C kept poking fun at me because I could barely talk and I kept trying to warm myself up by standing next to the pizza oven. They basically confirmed I had strep throat (honestly the most the lady did was look at my throat, listen to my breathing, and just said I had strep). No strep test was taken, but I pretty much assumed it was that anyways. So now I’m on antibiotics, again, and I took today off work (and since I’m seeing Ray, I’m off the next two days as well).
I left this blog on a sour note after the schedule incident this weekend. The funny part is, later that night, I never had to go up and actually talk to them about it, because C decided to take the matter in his hands, and approached my manager about how I wasn’t given a day off. My manager wound up calling me later that night, I didn’t answer because I didn’t recognize the number. And then I get a phone call 5 minutes later from C, or from his phone at least. When I picked it up, it was my manager and he goes, “Wow, she answered after the first ring, but when I call it goes to voicemail.”
Welcome to February, where I am starting it off not only being sick, but being a complete idiot. I had a few comments that were not spam in my spam folder, and I went to delete the one comment that was spam and…. I deleted them all. It makes me sad, I can’t even get them back. I wanted to cry when I realized I did that. If I haven’t replied to your comments, that is why, and I apologize for that. I hate how WordPress marks the wrong comments as spam. My delirious self also doesn’t know what she’s doing apparently.
It’s officially the last day in January. Yep, we got there already. It’s crazy, time flies. I say that in every post, I swear, but it truly flies these days. Is this a sign I’m getting old? When I was a kid, time used to drag, summers felt like forever. Maybe it’s the concept of time. No responsibilities means you just go through each day without focusing on the next. Having a schedule makes you focus on the day, and therefore, it makes it faster? Something like that.
We’re rapidly approaching February, breezing right through the first month of the new year. Unbelievable really! I felt like I didn’t accomplish as much as I had wanted to this month, which really sucks, but it just gives me a push to get more done in February.
January is about to end, and February is rapidly approaching. Time, it really flies. This month wasn’t as great as I was anticipating, but it’s only the first month of the new year, and I spent most of it working. I’ll get there (I hope). I feel like January always kind of is a letdown. I’m just ready for spring already.
