April First?!

I know we're all thinking and saying the same thing today: HOW is it already April 1st?! I feel like it was just Christmas! But anything that gets me closer to our wedding day/honeymoon is good in my book!

Since we're a third of the way through the year, I wanted to check in on my goals I set for the year and see where I'm standing so far.

A bad habit I'm going to break: Biting my nails.

FAILING MISERABLY. I took my nails off for a bit and I just bit them down and I couldn't handle having such a pretty ring and ugly nails.. so my nails are back on for now ;)

A new skill I'd like to learn: HTML.'

Nope. Haven't even starting thinking about this one. But, hey! I've still got 9 months left to figure it out!

A good deed I'm going to do: I want to volunteer to help with some sort of cancer events, hopefully lung cancer.

Ugh. I'm not doing well with this one either.. I'm hoping that with my new work schedule, I will be able to fit some more in, though, once I get settled with it. 

A place I'd like to visit: Washington, DC!

This plan is still in the works to go visit Christian's sister. But looking at my new schedule and weekends I already have  plans, it probably won't be until mid to late summer. 

A book I'd like to read: Anything and everything.

In January my grandmother gave me my tablet that was my graduation present (in May...) and I finally started downloading some books and I've already read 3! I've downloaded Divergent but I haven't had a chance to start it yet!

Reading with Zuko
A letter I'm going to write: One I'll never send.

This hasn't happened yet, either. I don't think I'm emotionally ready for it though, so I'm going to need a little more time. 

A new food I'd like to try: I'd actually just like to start eating healthier.

Haaaaaa. Nope. I went to the doctor in February and she told me I was underweight so I've just been eating everything I want. I do want to work in some exercise, first and then throw in the food. If I ever get there.. 

I'm going to do better at: Staying positive.

I'm definitely doing much better here! It helped that I had a few great months at work to fix my mood a little too. And I'm just trying to remember how blessed and lucky I am right now and how many wonderful things I have going for me. Yes, there will always be bad days and even bad weeks, but it doesn't outdo all the other wonderful things. 

And I have one more goal to add here that's not on this list: Start a new job.

Well, when I wrote this I meant with a different company and I was dead set on it. But as I got better at my job and other opportunities came up, I went for it. And as you guys know - I just got a promotion! I'm slowly transitioning into it and so far I really like it! I love knowing that I'm doing something useful and helping other people exceed at their jobs.
