August Goals

Monday, 1 August 2016

(insert remark about how quickly the year is going and how it can be August already here)

This month is all about new beginnings for me. I've been waiting for my fresh start since January, and now that the time has finally rolled around, I couldn't be more excited! 

1. Get the new house sorted.

The big move to my new house in Lincoln starts this week (and I still haven't started packing) and I'm so eager to get settled in! The house is all painted, but my plan for this month is to get everything unpacked, rather than leaving it a month or two like I normally do) and make it feel homely!

2. Get back to salsa.

I haven't been to any salsa classes since I moved out of Sheffield, there aren't any at all in my tiny little home town and I've been getting some serious withdrawal symptoms! I've found one or two in Lincoln, so when I move I'm going to get straight back into it!

3. Start cooking more.

Now that I'm going back to living independently, mum-cooked meals are going to become a thing of the past (sob). I can cook a little bit but my repertoire goes as far as risotto and spaghetti bolognese... And that's it. Probably not the most balanced diet in the world... So this August, I'm going to try to get into the swing of cooking different meals and trying out new recipes!

4. Try YouTube.

I've been toying with the idea of starting a YouTube channel for a while now, but always brushed it off because I didn't really have the right equipment, and because I didn't really think that I was cut out for it. But, one of my housemates has a proper camera which she is willing to let me borrow, so I think maybe it's time to dabble! Even if the video doesn't actually see the light of day, I'm determined to at least have a practice run at doing a little video and see if it's something that I take to.

What do you want to achieve this month?

  1. I hope everything goes smoothly with the move! It sounds like you've got an exciting month ahead!! :-)

  2. I love cooking, things like stir fries and pasta bakes are so quick and easy to make! Hope your move goes well!
