I feel like every season is my excuse to make a new list of goals for myself. Do I ever achieve them? No not really. But at least they are short term goals that I can achieve rather than the ones I have for the New Year like: lose 20lbs, save money, and find out what you want to do for the rest of your life! For a very, very, very, long time I have come up with my Summer List. A list full of adventurous things I want to do in that summer. This is something I would do in middle school! So it’s a long time tradition. This Spring I thought, why not. Why not start it now, make it a seasonal thing. This way I can keep myself busy and find some new hobby’s or interests. I know I am a little late, but here it is my Spring Goals. (Many of these may fall into my summer list)
1. Herb Garden
Last year I tried to create my own little herb garden. When I say try, I mean that I bought a mint & parsley plant and would water it once a week, and then would get mad when it dried up, AND then never threw it away…So, this Spring I would like to begin my own herb garden. I have always wanted to have a garden but living in apartments without a porch have made it very difficult. This year, I have done my research and I am going to do it! I will create my herb garden! I know that this is a Spring/Summer goal, but I did have to plant them in the Spring so it counts! Now just to remember to water them…
2. Workout/Be Active
I know, I know. Everyone always puts this on their list so I had to too. Last year my boyfriend got me a bike for our anniversary, and I swear to you, I am going to use it more than I did last year! I have just been staring at it this whole winter! I always tell myself I will go on a run and work on my 5k, but I feel like it just leads to me being lazy and getting angry at myself (why does my laziness always win!!???). So, I decided to be more active and see where that takes me. This winter has been so awful that I just want to make sure I am outside as much as possible: bike rides, hiking, trail running, kayaking, I want it ALL!
3. Farmers Market
So this is another Summer Goal. The Farmer’s Market doesn’t open until June, but I plan on going every Thursday. One of my good friends works and lives on a farm, and has shown me how important it is to buy local! BUY LOCAL! And I have a great NEW reusable bag to use!
4. Calligraphy Course
Since 2015 has started, I told myself that I need to keep learning in a creative environment. I have been looking for fun courses to take, such as calligraphy. I found this one day class Lettering by Liz in Boston, and I am so excited to partake! To be continued…
5. Baseball Games
Hellllloo! Spring means Baseball season has begun! Done & done!
6. Up My Martini Game
Since moving into our (not so) new apartment (October), I have been trying to stock our bar. My boyfriend doesn’t drink liquor so it’s really been up to me which can be hard because I just want to drink the booze when I it get! Slowly I have been collecting a variety of liquors, but I need to get better at making martinis. You know what they say, practice makes perfect (they said it, not me). Cheers! #lifegoal : Sandra Lee’s Cocktail Time
8. Finish a Book
I am the worst with reading. I have like three books that I have started and just haven’t finished, and they are GREAT books!
- Say Yes
- Girls on the Train
- Is Everybody Hanging Out With Me
- Lean In
See! First off, how basic am I? Reading all of the best-selling female lead books #womenpower, second, they ate like the best books but I just can’t finish them. This spring, I am going to finish ONE.
9. Homemade Hot Sauce
This is a goal that is more specific and easy to do! I found this recipe for homemade hot sauce, and I NEED to try it. I put hot sauce on everything, and if I can make it myself, WIN!
I have been wanting to try to make my own macaroons for some time, and what better time?! To be continues…
