Okay, I’m pretty sure there were some good things and some bad things, but let’s get into it.
- Take better care of myself. Once again, I can only give myself partial credit for this. I ate pretty well for most of the month, except for the early part that was full of traveling (you try eating well while driving 1,000 miles in a car full of junk food and only stopping at fast food joints and gas stations). I haven’t gotten back on the exercise train at all. And my sleep schedule is still wonky. I would even go so far as to say that it is fubar, but fubar would imply some drastic change and that’s not really the case. My birthday’s in June, so hopefully that new digit in my age will inspire me to start taking care of myself again.
- Read every day. It’s so nice to have a resolution like this one that is easy and enjoyable. I really kicked ass this month too, reading seven books. This was, of course, aided by the fact that I read the entire Hunger Games series in five days 🙂 I could’ve done it in three if I’d made a more serious effort to read on the drive up north.
- Blog every day. Another resolution that is both easy and enjoyable. Technically speaking, one could make a case that I fell off this month because I only have as many blog posts as there are days in the month as opposed to April, which has 30 days and 31 blog posts, but that would just be silly. This has been a really fun project so far, even on the days when blogging feels like more of a chore than a choice. Plus I’m almost to 200 posts, which is crazy.
- Work on my house. Oy vey. While I did no less this month than last month, I feel like the collective result of the past two months makes May so much worse than April. Would I be a terrible person if I asked my mom to help me clean my house? She has offered.
If I were to grade myself, I think it would be D+, A+, A, and I (somehow F doesn’t seem harsh enough). But it’s good to have room to improve, right?
In other May news, I got to go home for the first time since just after Thanksgiving (oh, Brand New show in AC, you were one of my favorite parts of last year) and that was awesome. My cousin had her baby, an adorable little girl. I started my penultimate semester in grad school. I saw The Avengers and discovered the wonderfulness that is the mocha cookie crumble frappuccino. And the Phillies are two games over .500. All in all, May was a pretty damn good month.
