My May Monthly Goals

My May Monthly Goals

 Hello, my lovely readers. It’s May. Where has this year gone already? It was only yesterday we were welcoming and toasting the new year. Fast forward five months, we’ve had a world pandemic and are all stuck inside.

My birthday is in May, so this is particularly upsetting for me. Nevertheless, I’ll find a way to make it work – I always do. 

I thought I’d start the month as I mean to go on, which is writing on my blog more and writing down my goals. I have a lot I want to achieve now that my American classes are nearly over. I have so much time on my hands, and I may as well use it to my benefit. So, let’s get on with my May goals.

Finish my tapestry

As mentioned in previous blog posts, I am learning tapestry and making a pillow for my newly decorated bedroom. I’m so close, and I can’t wait to make it into a pillow and put it pride of place on my bed. I want to finish it and turn it into a pillow by the end of this month.

Finish ‘Once Upon a Time’

I have been watching ‘Once Upon A Time’ since just after it came out in 2011. Once Upon a Time is Fairy Tale Land. It’s filled with magic, monsters and all of the characters we all know from stories growing up. … But unlike the “happily ever after” you may have heard about, their stories continued, and The Evil Queen cast a Dark Curse over the land… This is Storybrooke. It’s a brilliant series that has all the story tale characters we love, like Prince Charming, Captain Hook, the Wicked Witch of the West, Rumplestiltskin. I started and stopped watching the series, and then forgot what happened, so I went back to the beginning to start it over. But, I am finally getting through it and loving the stories. I have one more season to watch, and I’ll be on to the next one. What series should I watch next? Please give me some suggestions while I wait out quarantine.

More Exercise

So I’ve been a bit lacklustre with my exercise recently. The British sunshine has come and gone, and it’s back to classic English weather – rain. I haven’t done as much walking this week as I would have hoped. But I am going to start doing more indoors workouts and start dancing more. Just because it’s raining doesn’t mean I can stop working out. May will be a fitness month.

Talk to More Friends

In a time when communication couldn’t be more accessible, sometimes we don’t take the opportunity to reach out to old friends and catch up. I am going to try and talk to an old friend each day. It could be a quick text conversation or an hour-long FaceTime. Either way, the effort to check in with friends and have a conversation about how they are doing in these unprecedented times is so important. 

Create My Legacy

I am going to track my month by taking a photo each day. It could be a good day or a bad day. Nevertheless, I will take a picture of the highlight of my day, and that will help me with memories when I look back at this time in years to come.

While I am in isolation and have no outgoing spending, I am going to save as much money as possible. There is no need for me to buy anything new, so I’m going to look at my finances and look at where I can limit my spending. 

Start preparing for my final year.

In September, I will start my final year at Manchester Metropolitan University. I have to study lots of media law and a lot of different elements to learn. I have my reading list for the final year, so this girl is about to get very geeky and do all the required reading before the year has even begun. I am going to know all the laws and feel like Elle Woods at Harvard Law. I’m joking, but there will be lots of highlighting and colour coordinated textbooks. 

Self Love

While I have the time, I’m going to pamper myself once a week. It will be my downtime, where I can reflect on the week, and the week to come. Facemask, a long relaxing bath and an early night with a movie. Perfection.

I will write down three things I am grateful for each day. I will do this before I go to bed, to end the day with on a good and happy note.

What are your May goals? Let me know what you are hoping to achieve this month. Stay happy and healthy, everyone!
