Here’s how my goals for spring went…

  • Work 15-20 hours a week at my part-time job: I pretty much got that at my movie theater job, no matter how much I hated it.
  • Stay away from the snacks at work: I did okay with that. Maybe ate on half my shifts.
  • Secure a full-time job: Yes! As you reading this I’m training for my new fisheries biologist job in Seattle.
  • Hike once a month: Nope. I did manage one hike in Sycamore Canyon, but not much else.
  • Visit one new southwest state/ park: My cousins and I visited Channel Islands National Park for a day hike on Santa Cruz!
  • Read three books a month: I’m proud to say I’ve been more than keeping up with my reading. On average, I’ve reading six books a month this year.
  • Go to the gym three times a week: At first I was keeping up with a routine, but then I got a job…
  • Meal plan and prep: Nope.

My goals might seem a bit underwhelming because I don’t know for sure what kind of time I’ll have with my new, intense job, but here are a few things I hope to keep up with for the rest of the summer

  • During training: wake up two hours before class, use weekends to explore
  • Read three books a month
  • Practice Spanish a few times a week
  • Message family and friends everyday
  • Pay off some debt
  • Stretch a few times a week
  • Apply what I learn in training to do well at my job
  • Blog for half an hour every other day
  • Organize my laptop

Again, I’m no really sure what to expect with my new job and probably won’t know until my first deployment at the end of the month. I look forward to sharing what I can (as I’m recording data to use for government regulations, I can’t give too much away) once I’m in Alaska. I will update my goals at the beginning of fall!

What are your goals for the next few months?
