out with February… in with March…

Happy Sunday, and happy March, Reader! It’s time to look back on last month and see what I did(n’t) get around to… I would like to start off by saying that I think I did better in February than I did in January… But of course, I’m biased, as it’s my opinion about myself…

So let’s be quick and get down to business.

1. Read a book a week over the perfect four-week month.

I did this! I started reading a couple of books listed on my PopSugar List and according to the Goodreads Challenge thingy, I’m right on schedule for reading 50 books by the end of the year.

2. Go to that damn book club meeting that I missed last month.

I went and I had a great time! You can read about it here.

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.

Grand mileage total last month: 8.64 miles. I even paid for that little gym… I haven’t been motivated at all and without something to work toward, I just let my laziness persist.

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.

I went overnight to Gyeongju, a famous historical town here in Korea. Gyeongju was the capital city during the Silla dynasty and is rich with history. KBFF and I went with our other Korean friend. A fun time was had by all. (Except for when KBFF was practically force-feeding me Korean food. I ate a tiny crab. See photo above…)

Well, there you have it. I didn’t do great on the running front, but everything else went pretty well. So now, let’s talk about what the “intentions” are for March. Because that’s what you really want to know, isn’t it?

1. Eat “Paleo” for the entire month. (March Intention)

Okay, so I totally blew this today because I forgot that this was my goal for the month. So, with that being said, starting tomorrow, Paleo is the name of the game. And I expect it to suck. A lot. But I’ll get over it.  

2. (Yes, I’m doing it again…) Run 30 miles.

I signed up this weekend for a 10K the first weekend in April and I’ve got to get ready for it. This time, I feel like I’ll be likely to actually try and achieve this one.

3. Pay off the remaining $1000 on a credit card that I’ve been carrying a balance on since 2010.

This is a big deal, Reader. I’m finally getting smart and paying off the credit cards I came here to pay off… As much as it pains me to have less of a disposable income, obviously being debt free is more important. This is definitely going to happen in a few days.

4. Read 5 books this month from the PopSugar challenge.

Self-explanatory. I’ll also have an “assigned” book for the book club, which won’t count in this total So if we’re going to get really technical, I should probably aim for 6 books… That’s a lot.

5. Watch the new “House of Cards” season. 

Need I say more? The new HOC season came out over the weekend and I need to see it. Because, duh. Not to ruin it if you’re not up to speed, but Frank Underwood pulled some crazy sh*t in season 2 and things are sure to be even crazier in season 3.

And there you have it, Reader. Last month’s achievements/fails and this month’s intentions. It’s going to be a good month.

  1. So nice to meet another House of Cards fan…no one I know watches it for some reason????? I love it….I have been saving it…. and Have not watched it yet…. and re-watched Season 2 last week , it was so good….As far as all your goals go sounds good..go for it…..

    • What?! Tell your friends to get with the program! HOC is so awesome… And I really want to watch back through season 2 before starting 3, but that might be a bit much… I couldn’t believe what happened at the end of season 2 with the Underwoods and Meecham!! Such a shock!!!!! I’m sure we’ll both enjoy season 3 thoroughly!

      As always, thanks for reading, Annie! :)

    • Haha! Thanks, Dan! I will definitely make that 30 miles this month… With a 10K coming up and my high hopes of complete another full marathon this year (or at least a half), it absolutely has to happen!

    • Thanks, Leah! You as well! :) Have you decided on a title yet for a play or a book with antonyms in the title? I’m still looking to fill those spaces on my reading list!

      Thanks for stopping by my blog and reading. I’ll be sure to return the favor!

        I haven’t really planned out my reading list, kind of just taking it as I go. :P But I might read something by Shakespeare that I haven’t read yet (taking the easy way out on the plays, haha) and I have no idea what to do for a book with antonyms yet.
        Thanks for stopping by my blog as well!
