going somewhere in february… and other intentions…

Happy Sunday, Reader! And welcome to February. FEBRUARY. We’re already a full month into the new year, and it never ceases to amaze me how much faster time seems to pass now that I’m a legit adult. Frankly, it’s a little bit scary.

But anyway. It’s time to bore you with yet another list of things I’m going to [somewhat pretend] to accomplish this month. If you haven’t picked up on this from reading over the last several months, I’m an obsessive list maker. It’s so bad, that I actually own two monthly planners (obviously, for separate things) and a desk calendar. Not to mention, I use my iCal, too. And a cool app called Taasky… And my Apple “Notes” app… And, recently, Evernote… Seriously. I have a problem.

Okay. Tangent. Sorry. Here’s my few monthly goals that are in addition to the “ongoing monthly” intentions I have. You can read more about those here.

1. Read a book a week over the perfect four-week month. (Plus one, for the book club. Better get busy, huh?) *February’s “Intention-a-Month”

2. Go to that damn book club meeting that I missed last month. I have high hopes because this month, we’re (I say “we’re” because it’s imperative that I include myself in the group to further encourage actually going and not just reading the book) reading Red Dragon  by Thomas Harris. Apparently, this is the first of the Hannibal Lector books. I do love a good dose of creepy.

3. Run 30 miles. Seriously this time. Pay the neighborhood gym fee that makes me want to slit my wrists it’s so high if it comes to that. Get up off your fat ass, Kristine Teacher.

4. Do SOMETHING, possibly GO SOMEWHERE, for “Seollal,” the Lunar New Year. I have a five day break from school and there’s just no excuse not to use this time to see something new.

Let’s see if I can keep it together this month. Last month wasn’t so hot, should you have chosen to read yesterday. But I am feeling better after getting over that nasty cough and I’ve got big expectations for this second month of 2015.

So that’s it. Short and sweet. Wish me luck, Reader, because I’m obviously going to need it if we’re going based on last month’s track record. Yep. Whatevs.



How about you, Reader? Do you have any special goals you’re planning to work on this month? If you do, share them with me in the comments! I’ll try to help you stay accountable. :) (Though maybe I’m not the best person to ask for such accountability…)

  2. I hope you find the motivation to do something fun for “Seollal”. Your readers would love to see some unique sights! I am also trying to finish a book I started and try yoga for my first time!

    • Thanks, Eve! And thanks for taking the time to read. :)

      I’m hoping to get to Gwangju with my KBFF, but we might not make it now that we’re so close to “leaving time.” Fingers crossed!

      Have a great time with yoga!! I’ve taken a few classes in the past and really loved it. I hope to get myself to a class again in a few weeks. And good luck on finishing the book. I hope it’s everything you hoped it would be when you started it!


    • I am, too, Annie! I’ve got to organize the back room of my apartment for company coming in two weeks! Good luck! I’ll be sure to check in on you! :) Thanks for reading!
