Starting the Week On a Tuesday

I promise, I meant to skip my blog post yesterday! I totally didn’t forget…or maybe I did and this week is just gonna be a late one for me. It feels like that kind of a week. I left work an hour early yesterday because I thought it was 5 when really it was only 4! My work schedule for the week will definitely be reflecting that…

Any who, today is a special day. I took the afternoon to look into my life and figure out some things that I want to happen, and maybe some things I would like to change. I love getting to set up my monthly goals, as I told you here, so much so that I decided to add the goal of creating a 101 in 1001 list! And today, it is my great pleasure to début the list!
