Here’s what I was up to today:
- One of my goals for the summer is to get into an exercise routine, and today I finally started my day off with a pretty good yoga session. Hopefully I can make it part of my daily routine this summer and then keep it there when school starts up in the fall.
- J and I have always been pretty relaxed about our budget, because neither of us spend a lot of money. But we’ve got some financial goals to save up for (buying a house! taking a belated honeymoon! paying off J’s law school loans!), so one of my goals for the summer is to create a more detailed budget so that we can be working a little more actively towards these goals. So today I tracked down some of our fixed expenses and put them in a spreadsheet, and hopefully J and I will get around to finishing it up sometime this weekend.
- After all that hard work accomplishing things in the morning (or just out of general summertime laziness…) I spent most of the rest of the day watching Pretty Little Liars on Netflix streaming. Some of my students absolutely love the show, so it’s kind of for work? I mean, that really is the reason I picked it out of all the stuff that’s available to be watched. And overall, I’m enjoying it – it’s basically a soap opera crossed with a very drawn out slasher movie. Although I do have some major issues with most of the romantic relationships on the show. But that’s a post for another time, since I’m still working on pinpointing exactly what it is about them that I object to.
