May Resolutions

Taken on my trip through Oregon.

May is here, and I'm pretty darn excited for it.  I'm going to one of my friends' wedding next weekend, this is my favorite kind of weather, I'm going to start teaching a friend of mine piano once a week, I have a bridal shower to help plan, and my brother's wedding is only a month away.  Basically, May is going to be busy, so I'm going to try and not overload myself with goals.  

Work On My Novel Once A Week

This goal was a complete failure last month, but I'm going to give it another try.  I would put a specific word-count goal, but I'm really not sure how many more I'll need to finish, so this will have to do.

Yoga 4 Times A Week

Even as my life gets busier, I'd like to keep this up.  For those of you looking for a yoga routine to do, here's some links to my favorite videos.  Element: Hatha and Flow Yoga for BeginnersRodney Yee's Yoga for Beginners, Element: Yoga for Stress Relief and Flexibility, and Crunch: Candlelight Yoga.

Read 4 Books

Once again, I'd like to stay on track with my goal of 50 books for the year.  As a side note, my long-term goal is to have read 500 books by the time I turn 21.  

Come Up With A Summer Bucket List

Kelli at She Learns As She Goes made one of these last year, inspiring me to make my own.  It was nice to remind myself to enjoy the warm weather and still get some things done, so I think I'll do the same for this summer.  

Watch My Spending

I recently got my first credit card, and since I was already a big online shopper, I realize how dangerous this can be.  The freedom of being able to buy things online without having to worry about owing my parents is nice, but I'd like to make sure that I don't go snatching up everything on my Amazon wish list.  

What's on your agenda for the month?  Any plans to make your own summer bucket list?  If so, what's going to be on it?


  1. Yeah financial discipline can be hard, but I think I'm getting the hang of it. A big motivator is that I am hoping to move into an apartment with a couple of friends by the end of summer.

    Good luck with your novel! I admire your desire to do that because finishing a novel is hard! I mostly write whatever random stuff I want to write about on my blog as well as poems and a few pieces of fiction here and there.

  2. Love this!

  3. Great resolutions! It looks like an exciting month is ahead for you. :)
