Dear 100 Hour Board,
I know it's late in Alumni Week to ask this, but as nobody else seems to have beat me to it yet . . . roll call?!?!? :)
P.S. if somebody else has already asked by the time this question posts, or if you want to answer an actual question, here's one: what are three goals you're working on right now? THANKSBYELOVEYOU
Right now my three goals are:
- Get in shape/get active/lose some weight
- Stay up to date in my classes
- Spend less money
All of them are more or less going well, but I definitely have my good and bad days.
Dear Mrs. Baudelaire,
- Improving my relationship to God and the Savior
- Moving away from armchair activism and Facebook fights toward actually helping my community and marginalized people
- Figuring out how to actually follow through on my creative pursuits
1. Wrapping up some non-fiction publishing projects
2. Getting some fiction published
3. Surviving life in all it's glorious, many faceted difficulties
Dear Beatrice ~
- Personal Progress (and now I have a deadline!)
- Doing scripture, song, and prayer every night before bedtime.
- Eating healthier
~ Dragon Lady
- Don't voice any opinions about how things should be done in choir.
- Be nice to people so I can actually have friends.
- Make sourdough in a shape that actually works for sandwiches.
- Learn how to not procrastinate literally everything.
- Learn to play the bass guitar. (I'm getting one next month as a graduation present! I've been learning bass fingerings on my guitar for the last year, so I hope the transition goes quickly.)
- Walk at least 30 minutes outdoors every day. (Living a 10-minute walk from my job helps. So does Pokemon Go.)
- Finish the year's grading
- Compile notes of updates for next year's courses
- Finally get around to things I've been putting off like fixing my burned-out headlight and buying shoes with soles that don't have holes through them.
- Complete a household inventory.
- Rebuild a relationship with God and religion.
- Finish a project.
- Be less distracted.
- Exercise more.
- Go to bed early more consistently.
- Vacuum every week.
- Read the Book of Mormon every day.
- Eat a vegetable snack every day.
So far I'm only doing well at the vacuuming one, but I have a few ideas for making the other two more likely to happen.
Man, I've been lazy busy this reunion, I think I answered three whole questions.
- Do a pull-up. I maxed out the push-ups last PFT but can't do a stupid pull-up.
- Learn the bagpipes. Life is kind of settling down and I can finally pull off some regularly scheduled practice time.
- Become conversational in French. I was super close 15 years ago, hoping it will come back.
- Read all the books on my bookshelf.
- Actually start cooking more.
- Go on more hikes this summer.
