This month I set myself four goals. How did I do?? Well let’s have a look…
Have a wardrobe clear out
Success! I cleared out my wardrobe and can happily say that I donated/sold/threw away about a third of the the clothes I had. Phew! It was a long, exhausting and sometimes frustrating job (a lot of second opinions were needed) but I did it.
Rethink my future career
This has been the most difficult goal to achieve, but after a LOT of negotiation, I think I’ve solved it. I’ve found a distance learning Masters degree that I’d like to do… Desperately!! The problem was that it includes a compulsory induction week on campus and it didn’t look like my work would allow me to go. After a lot of negotiation with not only my boss, but also her boss, and her boss, I finally have permission to go! Woohoo! The Open Day is in November so I’m looking forward to adding that as part of my November Goals.
Go to the Ice Bar in London
Yes, we did and it was fantastic! It was a little smaller than I had imagined but it was still such a great experience and I would TOTALLY love to go back! It was freezing and my toes felt like they were going to fall off, but I wish we could’ve spent longer in there. Let me tell you, it is the most bizarre feeling coming out of a building in the middle of October and feeling warmer than you were inside!!
Read ‘The Woman In Black’
I always felt a little mediocre about the film version of this story so admittedly I did procrastinate a little with this one… But then my bf took me to see the stage play and I bloomin’ loved it! At first it was confusing, but it actually turned out to be SUCH a great interpretation of the story!The book was quite difficult to read, despite it being fairly recent! I think that it actually helped to create an olden-age Victorian atmosphere – much the way that, if you read a Jane Austen book you can almost hear the horse and carriages in the dialect. I don’t want to give away too much if you haven’t read it, but it’s definitely helped me to understand the parts that the film didn’t!
