It’s May today! After a crazy stressful April, I plan to make May as relaxing and as full of joie de vivre as I possibly can. I’m still going to be working, but I’ve got manageable hours with plenty of time left over to read voraciously (I took a trip to the library yesterday to stock up!), spend time on patios with friends, and take lots of photos. My major goals for May are to purge a lot of my stuff that’s clogging up my apartment. I remember hearing a quote once that said something along the lines of: when you own a lot of stuff, your stuff ends up owning you. I can definitely relate. I don’t know how I’ve managed to conglomerate so much crap but I’ve got to get rid of it. I want the process of moving out of my apartment to be as straightforward and pleasant as possible, so that means May is going to be a purge month. Last night I already went through a bunch of clothes and filled two garbage bags – one with damaged clothes to be thrown away, and the other for giveaway. Gotta do more of that! Feels good.
I’ll also be planning my trip as much as I can. I currently have a rough itinerary but I’ll be starting to hammer more details down and book some plane tickets! Thrilling, so thrilling. My other goals for the month are to relax, enjoy myself, read good books, eat good food, and learn to use my camera on manual. I’m excited to finally learn to take the photos I want to take.
I’m happy it’s summer.
