I’m still way behind on my blogging on some of the things I’ve been doing. I’m promising myself I’ll get to all that soon. My current project (besides all the stuff on this list) is to come up with a morning routine that won’t bore me back to sleep so that I can break my habit of waking up twelve minutes before I have to be out the door. The problem is that I can efficiently be ready in twelve minutes, hence my lack of motivation to stop doing so. Anyway, it’s already May and I just don’t understand how, but here is my “progress.”
Create – I’m not doing so well in the “create” area of my life.
4. Cook through a cook book.
Ok so here’s the thing–while I haven’t really been cooking, per se (I acknowledge that boiling pasta and stirring in milk and cheese powder cannot count for cooking), I have been studying the cooking. Sabrina got me a subscription to Food & Wine magazine for my birthday, so I’ve been reading through that for inspiration. I’ve also been reading through my Alice Waters cookbook. Little did I know just how famous and admired Alice Waters is in this strange world of food, so I made an excellent choice, cookbook-wise. It’s just the cooking part I need to get to. I did come across an ad for a Cuisanart food processor (in aforementioned magazine) that kind of spoke to me (this is a safe place so you can’t judge me for sharing this):
“You love the whole process. Discovering that perfect recipe. Carefully selecting your ingredients. Adding those special touches to make the meal uniquely your own.”
Well Cuisanart, sadly, I do not share in the above sentiments of your ever so inspiring ad, but the whole “loving-the-process” idea to sell a food processor pun was not lost on me and I appreciate it. Also, I would LIKE to love the whole process of finding recipes and buying foods and then cooking them. At least, I think I would. So I’m getting there.
Learn – the “learn” aspect of my life is also currently at a slight standstill.
6. Take a photography class.
Organize – I’m getting closer here; I just got a new laptop, so that will help aid in the virtual organizational process.
16. Reach my savings goal.
17. Fly a kite.
18. Lose 26 pounds.
Guess what everyone–I made an eye appointment! It’s next Tuesday. Here’s hoping I’m not nervous for this whole next week. I just hate when they put stuff in your eyes. Ugh I need to stop thinking about it as my eyes are already watering.
20. Find a doctor in Boston.
22. Visit New York City. 23. See a broadway show in NYC.
I need ideas for quick weekend trips that are good for solo people so that I can fulfill #26. I’m going to Vermont with Heidi in a few weeks and while she’s running a half-marathon (ha, yes), I’ll have some time to explore Burlington on my own for a bit, so that should be a nice preview to what kind of company I keep.
