Monthly musings; May 2019


Hey guys…it’s May.

You know what that means! It’s time to set some new goals for the month of May.

Last month I continued my habit of starting my days off at the gym each morning (though I still haven’t mastered not hitting snooze), joined a friend group of dysfunctional Aussies and established myself as their token American friend, and made an impromptu trip back to the States for Easter (more to come on that later). I also finished the client project I was working on and I actually have time to relax a little bit!

Here’s what I have in mind for May.

don’t hit snooze

Like I said last month, I am not a morning person by ANY stretch of the imagination - I don’t like waking up early and I certainly don’t like getting out of my comfy bed.

Considering my historically poor snooze etiquette, I’ll set a (slightly more reasonable goal) to not hit snooze at least 3x per week. I’m going to be honest here and say that I hit snooze twice this morning (and hit snooze Monday and Tuesday), so technically I’ve already broken this goal. Which means, I’ve just realised, that I have to not hit snooze 3 out of the next 4 days….


Wish me luck guys.

travel, travel, travel

Ok, I’m cheating a bit with this one because I already have trips planned. This month, I’ll be going to Paris, Malta, and Colmar over three back to back weekends, with different friends each time. And I. AM. PUMPED!

Will it be tiring? Probably.

Will it be worth it? Obviously.

Hopefully I’ll have some epic stories to tell afterwards.

write at least one blog article per week

I did a little better with posts in April than I did In March, with three posts vs. one, but to me, it’s still not good enough.

I want to replicate the same focus I have with my gym routine as I do with blogging, because it’s a great creative outlet for me and I really do enjoy it. To get me going down the right path, I will post at least one blog article per week (not including this one) and see how well I do.

have one new experience per week

This is going to be a continual goal because it’s easy to forget but it’s important to do!

When you live in a city as big as London, there is an endless supply of places to go and things to do/see. In the winter months I usually go into hibernate mode and find myself exploring the city less and less. This month, I want to make sure that I keep exploring and experience one new thing per week. Or as my Dad would say, ‘go out and do something new!’

tell me, what are some of your goals for May?

With love, V.
