Junebug

2 Jun

May was marvelous =)

Usually, I melt as soon as the temperature creeps near 30 degrees, but I actually quite enjoyed May’s incredibly intense heat… maybe because it brought me the first taste of summer of the year: the first patio drinks, the first comfortable nightly stroll through the city, the summer dresses, the mad shades, the uncomfortable sandals (boo :(), iced coffees, and gelato dates. šŸ™‚

Still waiting to pull out that swim suit!! šŸ˜‰

In May, I managed to accomplish my goals of…

1) Biking to work every day. Even through thunderstorms and 30+ degrees heat, and despite shitting my pants after almost getting hit by a truck on a highway ramp (if this happens again, I’m going to think it’s me, and not circumstance šŸ˜› ).

2) Making a financial plan. I want to put my spending in check, and make sure that I put aside an amount for my personal savings, a vacation fund for my parents, and I’m also going to start paying my parents “rent” for as long as I’m living at home.

3) Annnddd exploring new parts of town via Doors Open Toronto =)

There you go, an accomplished May. =D

June’s gonna be jumpin’!

For me, June’s always marked the beginning of summer. šŸ˜€

I’m expecting a lot more patios, Liquid Assets love, and Toronto festivals! Festivals I wanna hit in June are:

1) Short Film Festival – w/ philc

2) Waterfront Blues Festival – where my music lovers at??? =D

3) Luminato – where my arts & culture luvrs at?? lol

4) And of course, the Centre Island Dragonboat Race Festival!!! Come watch me and Liquid Assets kick ass!!!

Is Pride Week also in June? Not sure… but if it is, definitely that as well! šŸ˜€

Oh yes, my June goals!

1. Spend everyday outdoors.

Take advantage of this gorgeous weather, and move closer to my inevitable end of being blasian by the end of summer.

2. Less multi-tasking.

Multitasking will be the death of me. I’m usually working on at least 3 different projects at the same time at work, and it definitely makes me less productive overall, not to mention, contributes to my short attention span. I’m going to try to focus on only one project at a time at work, for the entire month… if nothing else, it’ll make me less stressed.

Already told my boss, he’s on board, haha.

3. 10,000 Steps Challenge

I said I was going to do it, and I’m going to do it. 10,000 steps each day. Bring it on, bitches. Time for some hardcore walking. Haha.

THE MARCH IS ON!!!

2 Mar

Yayyy it’s March! The sky is no longer dark by the time I head home from work, and the air is crisp and fresh but not bitingly peel-my-skin-off so. This recent weather turnaround is setting the perfect mood to launch a brand new month with my new personal goals. šŸ˜€

1. For the soul >> take a class: I registered for a dance class, everything from hip hop to salsa! Should be fun! I’m excited, hahaha. It’s starting 3rd week of March! šŸ˜€

2. For the mind >> branch out with books: I remember how much I used to love reading with I was a kid. Then high school and university hit, and the last thing I wanted to do was pick up another book during my free time. Iā€™m trying to get back into reading again. My plan? To get my friends to recommend books for me to read. More on this later. ;)

3. For the body >> no packaged foods: more specifically, I mean to eliminate/cut down processed foods. I’ll still be eating packaged “natural” foods like milk and eggs. For me, this really just means no cookies, no canned soups, no canned fish, no candy bars… those are the only things I can think of that I eat semi-regularly.

~~~

And what happened to my February goals?

1. Write a letter in Chinese to my family for CNY. Check! Thank god for Google Translator, haha.

2. Catch up with friends via coffee dates. Check! Good to get back in touch with everyone!! (well, not everyone… a couple flaked on me… you know who you are :P)

3. 100 push ups challenge. I finished the 6 week workout plan for the 100 push ups challenge, but I still haven’t gotten around to doing the final test yet. The only days I remember are on days when I do arms, for some reason… so I feel like it wouldn’t be fair to do the test on those days. šŸ˜›

Won an iPod touch! =D

1 Feb

JANUARY: Top 3 To-Do Lists

Yeah, I’m one of those people who enjoy the satisfaction of crossing something off of a to-do list. So much so that some days, I continue to add things to my to-do list just so I can cross it off! It’s time to lessen my load. I’m going to make a list of top 3 things I want to accomplish for the day, and once I get those done, chillax the rest of the day. šŸ™‚ Continue reading
