This year has been encouraging in the way of following through with goals and being active to change for the better. Change is good, especially when you have nothing to lose and so much to gain.
One big goal I gave myself this year was to work out. I know, that’s everyone’s resolution every year – to get fit. But I was set on making it happen at some point. I’m just not a gym person; I can’t just ~go~ to the gym. I figured my kind of workout is in class form. So I signed up for kickboxing. It sure has been kicking my ass though. Bruises, soreness, etc. everything. So far I’ve done 6 classes – two a week, and I hope to keep consistent. My initial goal this year was to specifically sign up for dance classes, especially hip hop, but I figured there’s nothing wrong with doing both, right? I’ll get to that eventually as a side fun workout class. For now I’m trying to keep a consistent schedule with my kickboxing since I gave into a membership.
I started an Instagram account with a friend where we try on lipstick swatches and share our entertaining photos and videos. She’s got more like caramel skin, so it’s interesting to see how some colors work on my skin tone and her skin tone. We try on swatches and take pictures either during our lunch break or after work. It’s been fun so far and it’s been giving me an excuse to wear makeup again – although the amount I wear now is nowhere near as close to the amount I wore in high school. I like bare face and lipstick. But I’ve been learning to appreciate quality and the price of trying to be pretty I guess. That stuff’s expensive!
Anywho, follow us @swatchusgo!
Saying it out loud kinda makes my “bucket list” sound mild, but something I’ve always wanted to do was to work on a solid colored puzzle, and finish it of course. My friend had one, and he let me borrow it. No exaggeration, it took me three+ months to finish this. And because it took so long, one piece got lost in the apartment and I’m trying to find a way to tell my friend. Or I may give it back hoping he’ll never open it again and find the missing piece. But I don’t think I have it in me to do that. Although I wish I did. It’s clearly eating me up inside.
Because time is so limited as you get older, I’m trying to use my time wisely. I have multiple projects I’m in the middle of, new projects I want to start, books I want to read, tv series I want to binge watch, and friends I want to see. Life gets crazy when you’re juggling everything around a full time job. Everyday that passes, I’m trying to use my time more efficiently – mornings, lunch breaks, and nights. I’m feeling accomplished so far though, and it’s a great feeling!
