I should have examined my list of thirty things a little better. I had kinda forgotten that a couple of them are ongoing things - to be started, well, immediately. It's not like I didn't know they were immediate things when I made the list... I just didn't realize they immediately started then. :)
Yesterday I was wandering through Target (as I tend to do more than I should), and I spotted the journals and had a flash of the "uh oh!" I had completely forgotten to start my journal that I was going to write in weekly.
So I hurriedly looked through their journals and purchased one that looks sorta 30-year-old sophisticated. I had to put down one that had sparkly stars all over it... that probably wouldn't have been appropriate.
I have spent a lot of my life journaling - it's one of the things that got my brain through college. It's been disappointing to realize that I've pretty much given it up (unless you count blogging, and I really don't). So this is an attempt to get that ball rolling again. It's very therapeutic and I always love looking back on my old journals.
So... thus it begins. A week late. But it begins, nonetheless. You probably noticed that I set my standards pretty low (ie "write once a week"). This is because I'm not sure how well I'd do with daily or something like that. Then I'd just get irritated, probably :). So, less irritation, more making it work!
A few of the other items are immediate as well - things like budgeting and all that. But I'll probably seriously start those in a couple of weeks. I'm trying to make it through the summer at work - only two more big programs and I'm done! Anyway, stay tuned for more 30 by 30 stuff :).
