november goals

We are already one-third of the way into the month and I’m just getting around to posting my goals. I have had some of them written down in different places, but am only now putting them in one list. With Thanksgiving, Christmas, work events, and travels for Will’s interviews coming up, I know the next…

october goals

I love October. While it doesn’t feel like fall outside yet, October always symbolizes the beginning of fun autumn festivities and the changing season. This October is a bit crazy for me, with work one weekend and road trips the other three, so my main goal is to stay present and focus on the people…

august goals

August is such an abrupt jolt after leisurely the summer pace of June and July. All of the sudden, school is starting, vacations are over, and, in the academic world, work gets busier and more urgent. The beginning of July and 4th of July celebrations seem like a long time ago. July was full of…

june goals

May was a whirlwind of travel, celebrations, and visitors. Even though it was packed to the gills, it was probably still one of my favorite months of 2018 yet. It was so busy, but I still felt like I created a good balance of self-care and alone time and fun social activities and time with…

marathon training and tips for setting (and achieving) big goals

Back in the fall, I signed up for a marathon. 26.2 miles. Before training for this race, the farthest I had ever run were half marathons. Over the past few years I have run three half marathons, the last one in 2015 in Brooklyn with a group of good friends, many who had never run…

march goals

After two months of feeling behind and busy, I finally feel like I have a better grasp on my routine. Two months may sound like a long time just to feel settled, but this year has thrown a few unexpected curveballs and it has taken a while to get used to all of the changes…

60 before 30

While I continually post my monthly goals, I have been thinking about creating a larger list of items I want to accomplish in the years to come, rather just in the current month. I have seen a few 101 in 1001 posts, where the goal-setter strives to achieve 101 things in 1001 days. I love…
