Well, looks like this will be an every two week type of thing. But who knows where my 2019 resolutions will take me? Ok, things to talk about.
*@theparakeetofficial on IG. Oh yeah. The parakeets have their own IG account. I’m not sure what niche these bad “boys” will fill but so far, they’ve increased their followers by 400%!!! (0 –> 4, that’s 400%, right?)
*I have read 72 books this year so far, although if I count my Harry Potter 1-7 re-read as one book, I would actually be at 66. I’m gearing up for a year in review. Currently, I’m thinking about/trying to read a Halloween-themed book (great choice in December) for my other book club but it’s a genre I don’t love (magical mystery) and it’s 400 pages. My motivation is low, can’t you tell? I did read The Atomic City Girls for my book club I’m hosting at the apartment on Tuesday and even though I didn’t love it, I did finish it.
*I’m on a running streak. It definitely fits in with my all-or-nothing mentality. I’m keeping it up until Christmas vacation, bonus points if I make it to the New Year. Then, maybe I’ll continue it! I aim for 3.1 miles a day. I have a couple of 4-5 mile days and one 1 mile day but otherwise, 3.1! I also have a new bike and an indoor trainer for some ambitious Winter training and Spring event plans.
*I’m moving to San Diego next Summer! I am so excited. I already have my route mapped out. I am going to the Grand Canyon for the first time and, in a clear nod to my new foster pet obsession (if the IG wasn’t enough), I booked two days at an in-park lodge so that the birds can hang out in a climate-controlled environment while I go hiking. I am such a sucker for those little birds.
*My apartment is decorated for Christmas. It is cute. It’s nice to feel a little festive for the season although I’m looking forward to my vacation with SMS and family- Feliz Navidad!
