Month One is over now. That’s weird. Here’s my first 26 Things update.
2. Knit a scarf.
4. Cook through a cook book.
I have been cooking! I’m not exactly cooking through my cook book, but I’m making progress. More on that later.
6. Take a photography class.
Summer and Sam are taking a sewing class at a craft store next month. I should just do that too. Because unless I buy this baby, I probably won’t come across a sewing machine to use. And even if I do, I wouldn’t know how to use it in the first place.
I have the feeling that my laptop is going to die soon. It’s been about three years or so since I got it–Dell’s don’t last THAT long. So I finally started on this. I pulled out my external hard drives and started organizing everything into folders and subfolders. Now I just need to go through the many folders and sort through all the pictures.
Not quite there yet, but I did finally hang up my cork board. Now I just need to stick things on it.
I started this too since I had the hard drives out. I came across old AIM conversations that had saved on my computer. That was entertaining. Oh how I miss the days of AIM.
- Reach my savings goal.
I am now at 50%. I guess I kind of cheated by starting out at 30%, but oh well. The goal is to save, so save I shall.
I forgot to actually weigh myself when I turned 26, so I’m not sure what has changed in a month. I have a rough idea though, so we’ll go with that, which means I’ve lost about four pounds. I’ve been going to the gym this month too, so that’s a start. And yesterday Heidi and I built a snowman, which is basically a workout. Maybe I’ll just keep building snow creatures for the rest of winter and skip the gym entirely…
22. Visit New York City.
23. See a broadway show in NYC.
26. Go on a weekend trip alone.
Not bad for my first month. I was only able to cross two things off this time around, but I’m working towards a lot of things, so I’m happy with my progress.
