Hello, lovelies! ... I feel as if I were stealing this greeting from another blogger (can't remember which one), but I'm entitled to address you as "lovelies", right? ;p. Anyway, I'm popping up to tell you a thing or two about me. I probably don't need to say a word, but since most of you have become my friends, practically, noblesse oblige!
I've been feeling down these past few weeks, very unaccomplished and unhappy about myself (so what else is new, right?). I've realized that I haven't accomplished anything at all this year (or since I moved to to California, really) and I know I've said this before, but I think my current situation calls for a big change, a 180-degree turn. It is now time to grab the bull by the horns and I'm determined to do it!
I'm not going to crack into my rant again, because I already did so earlier this year. I'm just going to tell you that I'm taking measures to fix myself and I'm working on becoming a happier me. I'm taking baby steps today to get results in the near future; doesn't sound too bad, does it? :)
Specifically, the goals I'm trying to meet right now are: 1) eating more healthily, 2) studying to get my TESOL (Teaching of English to speakers of other languages) certification (I'm taking an online course) and 3) getting my driving license.
I know these goals are not very far-fetched; however, I have a reputation for procrastinating and giving up, so these goals involve a change in lifestyle. So far so good, I'm taking a day at a time and setting deadlines to complete assignments; I'm focusing on goals #1 and #2 at the moment.
As you can imagine, this involves spending less time in front of my computer which, in turn, means not visiting your blogs as often. No worries, I am definitely not going to stop dropping by or posting; you'll hear from me regularly, I promise, but maybe not on a daily basis. As much as I enjoy reading you and finding things on the internet, I need to take care of this untenable situation and be at the helm of my life.
Thanks a lot for bearing with me if you do! ;D
And I'm closing this post today with "Sail Away", one of my favorite songs by Travis, just because :p.
Happy midweek, everybody! ;D
