101 in 1001: Month 11 Update

The end of January means much more than the end of the first month of a new year. The end of January is when you realize whether or not you stuck with your resolutions - or if you even plan to. The winter weather arrives in the South. The stores start to turn pink and red and sell bathing suits despite the "freezing" temperatures outside (I put freezing in quotes for you Northerners that love to point out that it is not cold" and days stay dark and gloomy while everyone plans for their Spring Breaks and summer vacations. Everyone is dreaming of the sunshine and happiness.

Winter is depressing. 

I haven't completely gotten into the swing of things like I had hoped. I'm working out (my legs are killing me today because I skipped leg day for the first two weeks because I chose bed over legs) but not like I had hoped. I'm not saving money - but I haven't really spent that much either. I blame Starbucks for my addiction to their coffee. I have been trying to reconnect with friends that I care about, but I'm not trying *that* hard. Insert awkward smile emoji here. I'm making excuses for not completing my goals but I promise I'll try harder. Life just feels in limbo right now. Connor hasn't found anything out about Boise. I want to move out, but not if he stays. I shouldn't put my life on hold just because someone else is waiting for news, but I am and I won't apologize for it. 

If you've made it this far reading my personal pity party, thank you. I appreciate you. Now here's what I accomplished this month.

101 in 1001: Month 11 Update -

  • Figure out how to do makeup. I actually have no idea what I'm doing, but I put blush on for work two times this week. I also did not wear make up two time this week. But here we are in italics because I'm "in progress". 
  • I added 10 miles to my 500 miles progress. I know I'm so fit. 210/500. 
  • Get my GPA back up. Homegirl's GPA is looking mighty impressive. Well, at least more impressive. I'm okay with it. 
  • Go somewhere else for NYE. We went to Charlotte, NC to celebrate the New Years with an old friend who is currently adulting there now. Sidenote: let's add adulting to the dictionary so autocorrect doesn't keep correcting it to adulating. 
  • Connect with Derian. I reached out to my cousin and I told her I'd like to catch up if she's ever in ATL or the next time she goes down to FL. 

So only two things were actually accomplished - judge me. What did you accomplish this month?
