I have a list of things that I’d like to accomplish in the next few years and even further out. I’m realizing that right now, I need to focus on this month.
I work full-time (my hours are ridiculously long). I’m in school again, part-time. I also volunteer and dedicated to the gym. So my life is work/school/volunteer/gym. That’s it. It’s pretty sad.
When discussing this with my girlfriend last night we challenged each other to do something social within the next month. I do go out with girlfriends from time to time but it’s random and probably not as often as I like. A lot of it has to do with scheduling. But by July 27, I’m planning to get a few more fun excursions under my belt.
I realize that I need the girl/downtime. After wrapping up work last Saturday (ugh!!!), a coworker suggested we go to the outlets. I was all over it. I hit the gym, took a quick shower and headed to her house. Everyone else got there and even though we got lost a few times, and no one made huge purchases, we had a ball. Add on a post-outlet dinner and hilarious ride home, it was a nice exhaustion.
