This girl's goals {Spring 2013}

Spring is finally here!!!!!! Yippee!!!!

I am uber pumped for Spring guys.  I am soooooo done with winter.  It put a seriously bad taste in my mouth.

Smallest lips EVA! Proof above.  With the biggest teeth.  Thanks parents!

Well, since I didn't do anything but sit on my lazy ass this past winter, my spring goals are super similar to my winter goals.  I have to make them happen this time though.  My wedding is only 5 months away (gasp!), and if I don't find a job soon I'm going to be eating cans of beans under the freeway.  SOOOO........ I need to get on it.  STAT!

1. Finish planning my wedding:
This one is SO important!  Now that I look back, Jared and I actually did get a lot of this done this winter.  There is still so much to do though, and if we don't finish planning this spring, we won't have time for all the DIY details I want to do the few months before.  What's left is the boring stuff... renting chairs and tents, measuring the space, Organizing timing, blah blah blah.  Can't I just skip this and go on to making playlists and DIY decorating??? 

2. Make some moolah:
#2 of my winter goals was to take some time off and then find a job that didn't eat my soul.  Well, I took the time off, too much time.  Now, I don't have a choice.  A job that eats my soul will have to do until I can find one that doesn't.  I hate money.  Well...... not having an endless supply of it anyways.  Why can't I make a ton of money selling popsicles and infused liquor????  Oh yeah, that takes money.

3. Commit to the Queen Anne Stairclimb:
Near my apartment are at least 20 different outdoor stair cases, each with about 50 stairs.  Rather than committing to a strenuous workout that I know I won't finish, or some crazy low daily calorie count that I'll only follow 3 times a week, I'm going to climb these damn stairs.  Even if it's only one of the staircases, I'm going to climb them every day.  So far, it's worked, for about a week.  I've only made it up one staircase  at a time, but by the end I hope to be able to make it up all of them.  There are a total of about 300 steps only a block or so from my house, and the rest are a bit further.  About an hour of going up and down stairs in the end.  For now, I'm gonna try to master those 300.  Then I'll get to the rest.  Like a badass!

4. Spend more time with family and friends:
I spent a lot of time alone this winter.  After traveling a lot the first half of March, I realized how much I really miss everyone I love.  I became really depressed last fall, and I sort of just gave up and wallowed for too long.  I'm ready to get off my booty and enjoy life again.  Cheesy, yes, but very real.  I need to be the change I want to see in my life, and a big part of that change is being around my friends and fam. 

Well.......... that's all I got.  It's Monday.... and I need to find myself a job.  Like, this week.



  1. I'm sending you some good job hunting vibes! I just got a new job not long ago and you know what I did to get it? Wrote it down. I know it sounds like a bunch of BS, but I wrote that I would get an interview and what I would wear and all the details and then it happened! Crazy. Good luck (with the stairs)! Haha.

  2. good luck with the job hunting! I'm currently at a job that eats my soul and boy it's hard. I'm currently looking for another one with little success but I keep looking! Good Luck!

  3. GREAT goals! I hope you accomplish them all. :)

  4. Fantastic goals-- you can do 'em!!!

  5. Good luck! Great goals! And not cheesy at all, life's too short, seize the day!

  6. You WILL find that job! It's out there.. I'm also in the same hunt. About to quit the one I'm at because I feel so drained. Lame.
    Also those stairs sound like no joke, good luck!
    I also do the same thing when it comes to creating my own little world. A couple of months pass by and I'm sitting there wondering why I haven't seen anyone. I'm horrible!

  7. Like everyone said, those are great goals!
    Glad that you're feeling better and ready to make the change yourself!


  8. Love your goals - that stairclimbing idea is great! And yes, family and friends, they are really the best. I need quite a lot of alone time, but when I've isolated myself from the world for too long... it's just not good. I'm sure you can make the changes you want. And find a job!

  9. This is so fun! What a great idea. Also I love how authentic you seem to be here.


I love your comments! I read each and every one, and they brighten my day.
