With each new month, I share my goals on this blog so that you, my friends, can hold me accountable. At the end of the month, I share a report card on my progress. I borrowed this idea from Kelli at She Learns as She Goes.
My report card for the month of May was extensive, but overall, I didn't do so badly.
I managed to head back to my hometown, so this was a success!
Make Bs or higher on my final exams. B
My final exams weren't horrible, but my final GPA could have been a little better.
Complete the Planking Challenge. A-
I hurt my knee, so while I missed the last few days of the Planking Challenge, I can successfully say that I exercised for at least 15 minutes every day I was home until my vacation. And that was the point of my challenge, so I'm not going to give myself a very decreased score.
Deep clean my college bedroom before I leave for summer. A-
I did clean my college bedroom, but I didn't deep clean it. I was in a bit of a hurry at the end, but I did manage to dust, vacuum, clean out my closet, and make my bed.
Unpack my clothes in my hometown bedroom instead of living out of a suitcase. A-
I did finish unpacking all of my clothes, but not quite all of my belongings. It won't take me long for my room to be completely unpacked, however.
Read at least one book. A+
This month, I have read "The Fault in Our Stars" by John Green, "And the Mountains Echoed" by Khaled Hosseini, "Design of Man: Made to Worship" by A.W. Tozer, "Radical" by David Platt, and "The Explicit Gospel" by Matt Chandler. I'm pretty proud of the extent of my reading this month!
I'm on vacation as I write this, so I certainly did this! Although I did pack the night before we left.
Create an earlier-to-bed routine as I start work. B
Some nights I went to bed at a healthy midnight. Others, I was in bed by two. Since I need to be up by 7:30 in the morning, anything after midnight is tiring and silly. I need better habits!
Start packing for Kenya. A
As I collect things to bring on my trip, I pack them. My suitcase was actually destroyed on this family vacation, so we went and bought a new one. When I get home, I'll transfer everything into my official Kenya luggage. So far, I have the majority of what I need packed. Only a few last minute details left.
Get all my shots and medicine in order before I leave the country. F
I pretty much completely forgot about this with the chaos of unpacking, re-packing, starting work for the summer, and heading off to North and South Carolina. I'll need to get this settled in the next three weeks before my big trip.
My overall grade is: B+
Ultimately, I'm happy with this score. Other than the F, I pretty much completed all of my goals for this month. Next month, I plan to set fewer goals.
Did you accomplish what needed to be done in the month of May?
