September always feels like a time of new beginning to me. Perhaps that's due to 22 years of academics? Or maybe it's because the weather cools some and my mind feels clearer at this time of year. It certainly helps me that my seasonal allergies also begin to wane. Also waning, or supposed to be waning, are the number of items that have been in my queue at work. And the bulk of my bathroom reno has also been wrapped up.
Whatever the reason, this September is beginning with a return to my writing. One that brings fresh eyes and the learnings of another summer season. In my 40th year, I feel like I know myself more than I ever had previously and there is still much about the world and my place in it to discover. I'm quite excited about it all!
My main goals going forward are:
This is rather like, "Finish the thing." I have a plan to follow. I also have a different ending in mind.
After performing some much needed maintenance, my major goal is to learn power chords as I have a somewhat immediate need for them. Then I'll continue with the rest of my learning.
3. Health and Fitness
I will soon have an overnight sleep study. I'm also awaiting allergy testing because I've spent too much time indoors this summer avoiding pollens. General fitness and skating are on the list. I'm targeting shedding 15 more pounds and strengthening my tendons and ligaments.
My home is in quite a state after all the reno work and attention needs to be paid here. I set myself up with a schedule. Now I just need to follow it. The following it part is the most challenging for me. It seems that something always comes up!
