Something a little different and sentimental, if you will. This is the post that I should be writing while I’m drunk and going through a mid-college (well, it’s a little late for that now) crisis. Instead, y’all get this…
I had a goal of reading 20 books this summer. I read 19. I’m debating reading something short just to say that I read 20 books. That’s legit, right?
I had a goal of saving no less than $2,000 this summer. We’re not even going to comment on this one.
I had a goal of cleaning–really cleaning–my rooms in preparation for moving out. Well, I was a little consumed by trying to save $2,000 that the cleaning went by the wayside. Although, I did vacuum my room after I loaded all of the boxes that were in there into the car. That counts, yeah? Unrelated–I had a carpet under all of those boxes. Who knew?!
Take a roadtrip. Well, I did go to Arts Fest at PSU. We all saw the tragic end to THAT story.
Dance in the rain. Yes, it’s a little…frivolous. And silly. I get that. But it does remind you that you’re still young at heart, even if you are trying to save a ridiculous amount of money while only working minimum wage. Six and seven days a week. Yeah, this goal didn’t get checked off the list either.
Go for a run in the rain. Well, I did train for an upcoming half marathon a lot. And I’m sure it sprinkled at times. Or maybe that was just sweat because it was so damn humid this summer. Half-check this one off the list?
Run all the way around the lake at North Park. I can say that I did this. I didn’t run the entire time, but I did run around the lake, multiple times. I’m checking this one off and feeling proud of myself and I don’t care that I didn’t run the whole time damnit; it’s 5 miles. In Pittsburgh humidity. You go and do that in July and report back. You’ll totally agree with my check-off decision.
Volunteer somewhere. Yeah, um, I’m a horrible person. Moving on.
Paint an accent wall at my mom’s house. I didn’t do that…but I did paint an entire room at my dad’s house. Legit, yeah?
