I’m linking up with Melyssa at The Nectar Collective today to share some of my “wishes” (goals) for the week ahead. And, since it’s a new month tomorrow, I’ve also got a couple overall goals for July.
01 | stop hitting snooze
It’s an annoying habit. Since leaving my job, I’ve been setting my alarm for 6:30 and struggling to actually get up by 7:00. I’m lucky to have a dog who doesn’t insist on waking me up and nudging me out of bed before she makes a mess in the living room (Onyx is awesome [so is her bladder]; she’ll let us sleep in until 9:00 on weekends without any problems), but sometimes it’d be nice to have someone a little more insistent on getting me up early.
02 | am workouts
I think that, since I started running with the team in high school and got used to practice from 3-5PM every day, a part of me has always been an evening/afternoon runner. And most mornings, my body just doesn’t want to move that fast or work hard right after I get out of bed. But I feel so much more accomplished when I workout first thing, I don’t hit the afternoon slump (usually), and I don’t have to shower at night or go to bed all sweaty and gross.
03 | organize my desk
It’s so, so bad. Piles and stuff and junk just kinda shoved everywhere. When/if it gets done I might share some before and after pics.
04 | enjoy the hell out of time with my parents
They’re coming to see us for the weekend and I. Cannot. Wait.
01 | de-clutter and organize
We’re planning to have a garage sale with some friends (who have a house and will graciously let us use their front yard) in an attempt to get rid of our storage unit (or at least downsize to one that’s smaller/closer to us/more affordable) and make a little extra cash. This also means going through every nook and cranny of our apartment to sort through our crap, downsize, and re-organize.
02 | develop a legit editorial calendar/some sort of plan for this blog
I’ve been piecing ideas together and making this up as I go (which is totally not obvious, right?) and I want to have a little more direction here.
03 | enjoy the hell out of my vacation
Husband unfortunately can’t go, but Onyx and I get to join my family at the end of the month for a delightful week at the lake. Yeah, maybe taking a whole week off barely a month into freelancing isn’t the best timing, but I’ll almost certainly still be working while I’m there and isn’t that one of the main perks of being self-employed? Setting my own schedule and working from everywhere?
What are your goals this week?
