August Goals

  • Find a new copywriting partner at work.
    There’s not much I can do to control this. Mostly depends on getting
    good applicants, but I really want this to be taken care of this month.
  • Get Andrew & Kristen’s wedding gift together. – Sept. 14th is going to sneak on me faster than I want it to.
  • Go kayaking. – I just did this yesterday for the
    first time and it was awesome. I’m seriously tempted to start
    researching to buy a kayak of my own, but I don’t want to jump into that
    too quick. So I want to go out to Oak Mountain and rent one again just
    for fun.
  • Get back into my gym routine. (This means at least 4 days a week.)
    – The past two weeks I have really slacked off, and I’ve been blaming a
    lot of it on working late. But mostly it was just me wanting to take a
    break. But now with the wedding coming up next month, I need to crack
    down again.
  • Go home for one more weekend before the summer ends. – Probably late August or early September.
  • Get my car a checkup. – I’ve been putting this off,
    especially since I just had to buy two new tires last weekend due to
    wear and a poorly placed nail in the road. But things have been
    squeaking lately and I know it’s probably due for some maintenance.
  • Finish Game of Thrones book 2. – I’m really
    enjoying them, but these books are so slow-going. I usually breeze
    through books I’m really into, but with GoT, I can barely make it
    through more than one chapter a day. There’s just so much going on.
  • Painting! – I have a craft project in mind for my
    friend Kerin’s wedding. I’d really love to do it if I can work out the
    logistics and find some time to be crafty.
