April Showers Bring May Flowers, Right? Right?

So, April was a big, fat fail. But I totally don't care because I have an entirely new perspective on just about EVERYTHING and I feel more optimistic/good/happy/mentally stable than I have in a very, very long time.

Which is saying A LOT.

My goals for May are a pretty good representation of where I am right now,

April Goals

Finish 4 chapters of my manuscript. Nope. I almost finished 1. But that's okay because I just joined a new writing group and we're going to kick some manuscript booty.
Go to the gym 4 times. Nope. But it's okay. Because I'm making a plan...
♦ Find and follow 4 new blogs. Totally did this, but do I remember which 4 I found this month? Nope.
♦ New blog header... I did it all by myself! So proud!
♦ Write a post about the awesomeness of Bloglovin'. I did. Click the button at the bottom to follow me.
♦ Plan an awesome year-end party for my students. Working on it, and it's gonna rock.
Clear out the flower beds. My roommate ended up doing one of them, but I never got around to the other one...Yet.
Plant flowers! Not yet, but I'm gonna.

May Goals

☺Go gluten-free for the whole month. (I'm playing a hunch here, and I'll explain more tomorrow.)
☺Start a half-marathon training program for the Tinkerbell Half in January.
☺Go to the (ugh) dance this weekend.
☺Go on a date. A real, actual date.
☺Start the garden.
☺Attend graduation.

You are awesome. And if you share this post, you'll be even awesomer!


  1. Awesome. I'm trying to get more running in myself, well at least cardio. I'm walking/interval jogging twice a day down. Only 20 minutes at a time. At least it's something! Here's the link to my post:
    The Nautical Owl's May Goals!

  2. The dance and date aren't one and the same are they?
    Gluten free - you can do it.

  3. Ask me about your gluten-free goals! I'm allergic to gluten and can send you TONS of recipes! :-)

    1. I'm definitely going to need help there! I stood in the grocery store last night feeling so lost!

  4. Gluten free is so much easier to do then it was a few years ago. Good luck on everything and have a blast at the dance!

  5. Michael made your goal list! Yay! I totally support your GF goal.

  6. Even if you don't hit the goals, it's all about making them, and working toward them. Forward progress rocks, as does fresh new perspectives. YAY! :D

    Gluten free is totally easy to do now. I did it for 5 months. You just substitute a lot (for me, replacing pasta with lentils, replacing bread with polenta, etc was a fun challenge). Go you! :D

  7. You still got a lot done darling! Revel in the accomplishment!

    I hope april showers bring men. Hot men. lol

  8. I would make plans for the month but I suck at making

  9. Super secret travel plans?????

    Great job on your goals, and on your date! :)

  10. Tinkerbell Half? Awesome!! I can't wait to hear about your super secret travel plans and your gluten-free journey. I need to look into it more, but I think it's something I need to try. My sister is doing paleo (yikes!) and says she feels so much better.

  11. Tinkerbell Half is on my bucket list. Secret Travel plans sounds like SO much fun.

  12. Good luck with May! And good luck with the Half Marathon training! You will be surprised at how strong you will be in just a couple of months!

  13. I love your new header, and you look fabulous in your photo too!

  14. Yay! I'm glad you're changing things up a bit! I need to find a writing group that is actually serious about getting stuff done cause I got some writing to do myself. Good luck this month, you'll do amazing!
