2. Read 40 books. That's less than 1 book a week but more than I currently read.
- I'm on book number 6, which is another Harry Potter book. I can't believe I'm enjoying them so much. I got real excited about the possibility of visiting Florida sometime in the next year. Yeah, I'm kind of excited about Disney World, but Universal Studios is opening a Harry Potter world, and I think I'm really excited for that too. I hope I get to eat some chocolate frogs.
3. Continue to pay down my debt.
- Credit cards are payed on time again this month. Unfortunately, I can still only pay the minimum balance (I actually usually pay 1 dollar more). I can't wait until I'm making more money and can increase my payments
4. Continue to stick to my budget.
- I've been pretty good about this. I'm still ahead of the game according to my projected budget, but not by as much as I should be.
5. Live more life.
- I went to concerts in 2 days! So great to see 3 of my favorite bands in one weekend. I took Kristen to Flogging Molly. She said she enjoyed the band, but half way through she got a major headache so she didn't have very much fun.
6. Let Kristen know how much I love her everyday.
- The talk of engagement is more and more prevalant everyday. I think it's no longer a question of if, but when.
7. Learn a new skill.
- At the Flogging Molly show, I decided I may want to learn the mandolin, banjo, or harmonica. In the research phase.
12. Try some other new food every month (this one is negotiable, new foods aren't super easy to come by on a low income. For example, I've always wanted to try lobster, but it's too expensive to take the chance and I'm never in the position to try someone elses.)
See that! That's Indian Food. Which I've never had before. But it was so god damn delicious. Eat Indian Food!
13. Find a new job.
- I have another internship interview tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed.
14. Overcome my awkwardness in social situations.
- I've been working on the committee for the Del Awards (an informal little awards ceremony done once a year at iO). It's forced me to interact with people I'm normally very shy around. I'm proud to say I've actually done an ok job with not being weird too.
