WHOA. I feel like somehow in the last half of April my life organization imploded. I fell behind on so many things (blogging, reading blogs, Instagram, exercising, general life organization) and I’m definitely ready to just take some time and get things back in order. What better way than with some May goals!
#1. Get into a schedule for my ‘extra-curriculars’. I feel like I never seem to keep my personal projects and hobbies in balance. It’s like I always work on just one of them while the others get shifted aside. For May, I really want to utilize my planner to keep all the things (art, blogging, reading, social medias, my blogging friends & groups) in order so I don’t feel like I’m scrambling to stay on top of things.
#2. Complete two personal art projects. Going hand in hand with my above goal, I’d like to give myself enough time to work on personal art projects even if I end up busy with commissions again. It’ll be challenging, but I really want to still be making art for myself, so I think it’s worth it to make time for it.
#3. Create an exercise schedule for myself. While I get a decent amount of exercise since I’m a pretty active person I would like to get on a set schedule of purposeful exercise at least three times a week. Ideally, a combination of YouTube videos and running. Right now, I kind of just wing it with exercise which means it’s always really irregular. I also want to look into signing up for another race, which I find gives me great motivation for running. Also great for motivation? Awesome ladies.

#4. Continue purging unnecessary possessions. Since January, I’ve been slowly going through our apartment and getting rid of things. Having lived in the same place for eight years, we’ve amassed a lot of crap. And I’m a bit sick of it. There is just so much that we don’t use or need, and I’d much rather see it go to people who can use it! My next biggest obstacle to tackle is clothes, and I really want to look into the idea of a capsule wardrobe after reading about them on XO Mia.
I think that’s about it! April was an amazing month, but I really feel like I need to up my time management game for May. Scheduling is a precarious thing…letting one thing slide can quickly snowball and suddenly things are in shambles! Being unorganized just isn’t something that I deal well with anymore; it ups my anxiety like crazy and generally makes me feel unaccomplished. Time to bring it around for May!
What are your May goals?
