I’m a quitter and I don’t care…

So, Reader. As you know, I’ve been busy. Very busy. (I swear, this is becoming the most ridiculous excuse for not posting because it’s one of only two that I give – the other being laziness.) I was doing regular work. And taking a Korean class twice a week. And I started blogging somewhat more consistently for my city gig, Colorful Daegu.

And then I decided, after reading some things and having some short exchanges with my friend, Anna (who wrote an awesome guest post on this blog that you can read here), that I wanted to start making more time for writing on this blog. Plus, I got accepted to write again for the city blog – another year with them – and I want to really take it more seriously this time… And I want to basically run a business. This takes time, effort, and a shit-ton of research, Reader. And I didn’t have that kind of time between my day job and Korean class and being lazy and trying to exercise and remaining social… You know, so, something had to go.

So I quit Korean class just a week and a half before it was set to end.

Cutting class never felt so good and so bad all at the same time.

I felt good because I kept thinking, “My heart isn’t in it right now. I don’t want to be there. I’m not interested in doing the homework or truly studying. So, why force myself to do something I’m not enjoying anymore?”

But then I felt guilty because I thought, “I paid for this class – actual money – and there are only three left. What kind of lazy a**hole doesn’t just suck it up and go to the last three classes? Who does that?”

Let me tell you who: ME.

hashtag project april…

Reader. It’s Friday. FREAKING FRIDAY. I live for Fridays because that means I can stay up late cleaning, “watching” Friends, reading a book or random Buzzfeed crap, or a plethora of other things.

Because I’m a little bit boring and I like it that way, thankyouverymuch.

But anyway, as mentioned in my last post, I am truly sorry for abandoning my post here on A Little Bit Brave. I have some stories, yes, but before we get into those this month, let’s recap my goals for March and how I did.

March Goals:

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

2. Run 30 miles.

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

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

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

Basically, the only goal I met last month was probably the most important one, paying off that credit card. Everything else pretty much went to shit. I admit that a little [okay, a lot of] laziness went into it, but I swear I as doing well for the first week or so. And then it went all downhill. But now that it’s a new month, it’s time to get back up, wipe off the dust, and start anew.

Here’s what I want to do this month… Now that we’re three days in, I’ve had some time to really consider what I’m going to do.

April Goals:

1. Read four books, not including this month’s book club choice.

I didn’t read ANYTHING last month, and that’s just pathetic. This weekend, I’m going to be cramming the latest book club book because our next meeting is on Sunday. As in, like, two days from now. And I have no time to do it on Sunday, so tonight and tomorrow it is!

2. Complete 22 days of the “Insanity” workout.

It’s already the 3rd and I’m running another 10K this Sunday, the 5th, so starting Monday the 6th, it’s on. It’s only fair that I allow myself a few days throughout the month to rest (not to mention, the program calls for it). This is going to be legit hard, Reader, because I’m a total slacker, I hate being dirty/sweaty, and um, have you TRIED “Insanity”? There’s a reason why they call it “Insanity.” Because it’s crazy-difficult and it just effing SUCKS.
