I love the tradition of setting goals for myself at the beginning of each month. I find it really difficult to stick to New Year’s resolutions (a year seems so long, I just get lost) but a month is just long enough for me to stay both motivated and accountable. Last month I set out to read, snowboard, celebrate and start seeing a therapist (see January Goals). I’m happy to say I was for the most part, successful.
One| Find a new Barre Studio.
For my birthday my Grandparents gave me money to find a new barre studio, now I just need to decide where I want to start attending and purchase a package. Barre is one of the few workout classes I actually enjoy (no Zumba for me thank you). I hope to find a nearby barre studio to incorporate into my routine (along with running).
Two| Get Professional Photos with Jordan & Pierre.
Truth be told I’m a photo junkie. I’ve always loved working with new photographers and feel lucky I’ve adopted friendships with a few of the talented artists I’ve worked with. For our anniversary I want to hire a photographer I’ve been wanting to work with since high school to photograph Jordan, Pierre and I.
Three| Write at least Four Outfit Posts.
Last month I had difficulty maintaining my normal blogging schedule with my new job. I don’t work traditional 9-5 hours which I actually love but I have had a difficult time transitioning my blogging and photographing schedule. I love shooting photos for this space and I would to find a way to continue adding new photos and fashion posts despite my new schedule. One post a week definitely feels attainable!
Four| Succeed in my Online Classes.
I absolutely love learning, since graduating college I’ve been anxiously looking for new classes to take. I just love being a student! I found a few fashion journalism courses and immediately enrolled. I’m excited to push myself as a writer while learning more about fashion, still I know it will take dedication if I actually want to succeed in the courses while working full time and attempting to workout and blog.
Five| Stop using our Second Bedroom as a Laundry room!
I mentioned last week that Jordan and I have allowed our office/walk-in closet/second bedroom into a giant laundry hamper. I’ve finally started to catch up on laundry and now my goal is to stay on top of it! I love using the room as an office but find myself completely avoiding the room when it is a disaster. It’s a simple goal but I feel as if putting it into writing will hold me just a little bit more accountable.
Besides the five goals I’ve mentioned I am hoping to celebrate Valentine’s Day and my anniversary with Jordan. I have become such a sappy romantic person the past few months and while I’ve always been an idealist when it comes to love, I even make myself a little lovesick lately. I’ve been so cheesy and filled with girly-girl love, I don’t know whether to smile or vom. I can console myself with the knowledge that February is the month of love and my determination to turn my life into a romantic comedy won’t seem quite so pathetic.
What are your goals for the month of February? Big or small, I want to hear all about what you are hoping to achieve!
