The last time I participated in Nicole's link-up was... October. Maybe I should just start doing quarterly goals rather than monthly because that's how good my consistency has been. Nevertheless, I am here to try again! Let's recap October's before we move into what I'm hoping for January.
Two for two! I'm looking to push myself a little more in January and set a few more goals. Hopefully I will have the same success!
01. APPLY FOR MY PASSPORT (ASAP!)
I'm hoping to visit Vancouver in March, which would be my first trip out of the country! I know I should've had my passport taken care of a couple of months ago, but I didn't know that I was (possibly, hopefully) going to Vancouver a couple of months ago. I'm probably going to have to pay the extra $60 to expedite the process, but it'll be worth it, right?
02. STUDY FOR THE GRE FOR ONE HOUR, THREE TIMES A WEEK
I signed up to take the GRE on February 18th, which will be here before I know (or am ready for) it. I know if I don't set aside a minimum amount of time that I will either forget completely or put it off and try to cram the night before (which you obviously can't do with the GRE). Wish me luck!
03. FINALLY GET MY BOOTS FIXED
Once upon a time, I found the perfect pair of vintage cognac leather ankle boots at Room Service Vintage that were cheap and in my size, and I promptly scooped them up. Then, only a few days later, I nearly fell to my death when the heel came off the right boot while I was walking down the stairs at my grandparents' house. I've been meaning to get them fixed for awhile now... and a few days ago I realized that "awhile" is actually four years. That's right–that happened four years ago.
04. POWER DOWN BY 10:30 EVERY NIGHT
I'm a notorious night owl, so a few days off with no obligations can easily throw off my sleep schedule. I feel like I'm still catching up from the holidays, and I'm still struggling to get to bed early. I know a large part of the problem is my phone and TV habits, so I'm going to work on "powering down" by 10:30 every night so I can get some sleep.
What are your January goals? Don't forget to link-up over at writes like a girl!
