Monthly Missions – March

2 Mar

Well, hey there, March. Not sure where February went, but it is definitely time to get serious about the 101 and what better way than with some monthly missions?

10. Make my bed every day for three months. I have to start somewhere right? I’ve been doing a nice little toss over, most  mornings. You know what I mean, right? You don’t actually make the bed, but you kind of throw the comforter over top so it covers all the sheets and pillows. Maybe that’s just me… Anywho, I’m giving this one a go this month.

11. Complete three sewing projects. The fabric has been purchased, now I just need to sit down at the machine and knock out project one of three!

74. Update my happy box. So, it’s been a bit of a rough couple weeks, I’m not gonna lie. Which makes it the perfect time to update the happy box. In addition to updating the contents I think it needs to become a bit more prominent, instead of stashed away on a bottom shelf. Who doesn’t need a little more happy in their life?

So what about you? Any goals for March? I’d love to cheer you on!

Where to Start?

5 Jan

Starting a new year and a new 101 list bring some serious feelings. So exciting, so overwhelming. I have a lot invested in this list and I have some serious support and motivation behind me in the form of some great girl friends. I also have 101 raw tasks set before me. I can’t wait to get started, to become a better friend, a better sister, a better employee, and just a better me.

So the question is, then, where to start? I picked all these tasks, so each carries a certain value and interest to me. Knowing where I am right now, here are a few of the tasks I intend on focusing on first.

7. Keep a blog documentation of this list. I intend on marking this complete when I am completely satisfied with my blogging product. I work with social media every single day, so I have incredibly high expectations for what I should be offering to the blogosphere. On the flip side, I work with social media every day, so at times the last thing I want to do when I get home is work on my blog. This list is important to me and I want to share with the best blog possible.
23. Finish decorating my apartment. A New Year’s Eve trip to IKEA with my mother put me on the path to finally getting my apartment decorated. I have lived in this apartment for over a year, so the time has definitely come and I can’t wait to get everything up and organized.
79. Read a faith/spiritual-based book. This one is a coin toss. For Christmas, my grandmother gave me Fresh Start by Doug Fields. My sister has been reading this and I was interested in what he had to say. I also am hoping to finish Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis. C.S. Lewis became one of my favorite authors during a course in college, and reading his thoughts on the subject is incredibly inspiring.
84. Take the GRE. I have changed my mind so many times, and have made drastic alterations to my career path over the past few years. I am now in a job where I love what I do, who I work for, and want to continue to grow and move up. A Masters degree would help me not only do my current job better, but also give me a boost when the time comes to move up in the organization. And so, I have been preparing for the GRE. Grad school, here I come!
