July Goals 2017

July Goals 2017

Be a pineapple: Stand tall, wear a crown, and be sweet on the inside. – Jacqueline Wilson

It has been such a busy month! The temperatures have reached a scorching high which makes it difficult to play outdoors but still nice regardless. I’ve been really busy with work lately and haven’t had much time to myself. I really think I need to reprioritize.

Before I get to this month’s goals, here’s how my June Goals went:

 Be More Social 

I have spent more time with friends and being outside than I have staying home and playing video games or binge-watching a TV show.

 Enjoy The Outdoors 

When it’s not too hot out, Tyler has enjoyed longer walks. I also went to Wat Lao Buddhavong in Catlett, VA with my roommate and some friends for a cultural festival–mostly for the food. The food was worth the trip despite melting outside in the heat. I wore my birks to walk around in which was fine but when I came home I realized I have tan lines on my foot.

 Give Yoga a Try 

A couple days a week there’s a free lunchtime yoga session at work and in the mornings when I wake up before I do anything else, I stretch. I’m definitely not a Yogi just a beginner giving Yoga a try.

My Top Three Goals for July

 Learn Code 

I already have a basic understanding of HTML/CSS and I do enjoy it. I’ve been doing this for over 10 years though I’ve never written code from scratch. I’m able to read, understand, and make changes. Maybe this is a new career calling as opposed to my current support role.

 Update Resume and Create a Portfolio 

I’ve been on a few interview panels at work and it’s given me the boost to continue to update my resume and try to better myself for more opportunities rather than sit idly in my current position.

 Start a Personal Development Plan(ner) 

I’ve tried to start planners before and haven’t been really good with maintaining them. I’m going to explore different ways to use a planner to track goals, not just daily activities.
