24 Things Update

I have been slacking on my 24 Things. Here is an update:

  1. Learn and practice Italian.
    -Still nothing. Although I did buy these “learn to speak Italian” CDs on sale at Barnes and Noble. It’s kind of funny because they sing really cheesy songs to help you remember words. I think it would be pretty effective if I didn’t think it was so silly.

  2. Read the Bible more.
    -I’m a heathen.

  3. Read at least one book a month.
    -I’ve had some book ADD recently so I’ve lost track of all the books I’ve read or started reading. Currently I’m re-reading The Meaning of Marriage, and I’m on the third book of the Anne series, Anne of the Island, which is wonderful. I also just started Silence and Solitude, and I’m reading two books on being “highly sensitive.”

  4. Practice the guitar.

  5. Attempt to sew something on a sewing machine.
    -I’ve given up on this happening while I’m 24.

  6. Attempt to knit or crochet something.
    -See #5.

  7. Take courses towards a certificate through Berkeley Extension.
    -I finally enrolled in a Psychology of Personality class at Extension. It’s part of the post-baccalaureate certificate program for Counseling and Pyschology. The class is really pretty horrible though, so I’m re-evaluating my continuing education goals. I’m also working on remembering how to spell “baccalaureate” correctly…

  8. Do at least three crafty projects.
    -Ok, so I color blocked my scuffed shoes. And that’s about it.

  1. Continue exercising.
    -After the half-marathon at the end of July, my schedule filled up and I have not been making exercise a priority at all. Although I did wake up at 5:30 AM one day to do Pilates…

  2. Get an apartment.

  3. Do a shoe & clothes purge.

  4. Run a half-marathon.

  1. Bring my lunch to work at LEAST twice a week.
    -I have been absolutely horrible at this. But I’m reinstating it this month due to my horrible eating habits and my excessive spending as of late.

  2. Floss everyday.
    -So far, so good..

  3. Get a haircut.

  4. Study the Book of James.
    -I have yet to look at this.

  5. Study the Book of Acts.
    -I picked up The Message of Acts book once and did some good reading. Need to get back on that though.

  6. Study the Book of Philippians.
    -This may need to be tabled to 25.

  7. Read The Hunger Games Trilogy by March 23.

  8. Blog at least twice a month.

  9. Do a bookmarks purge.
    -I have yet to do this.

  10. Find the perfect shade of red lipstick.

  11. Eat more bananas.
    -This could be better lately but it hasn’t been bad.

  12. Drink more green tea.
    -Ok so I have not given up coffee, but I’ve definitely drank more green tea while being 24 than I did when I was 23.

I told you I was a failure. I’ll have to do another update of what I’ve been doing since July. I feel like a lot has happened.
