Giveaway Winner & Some To-Dos

Cariann, you are the winner of the Cyber Monday Cowl giveaway! Woo hoo! Thanks, Pat, Meagan, and Ms. Congo for playing along. By the way, I selected the winner randomly, not based on the quality of your answers. You all gave very high-quality answers :)


Onto other news: These past couple months have been a big, hairy mess. I keep saying, "I just need to get through this week/this day/this month/this semester." And when I get to that point, there's just another big, hairy mess waiting for me. I hope this doesn't sound tragic; I'm in good spirits, really. But I want to get caught up.

I am so looking forward to the upcoming break--first, from teaching, and then from ALL THE JOBS. Yes, you heard me. I'm going to have, like, two whole weeks without working a paid job. For those two weeks, I am planning to relax, and for the entire break that I have off from my main job, I am going to relax as much as possible; however, I still have some tasks to work on to help me set the tone for the new year. 

I promise, these are things I want to do, and if at any point it feels too much like work, I'll stop. 

  • De-cluttering, organizing, and cleaning. Talk about putting something on the back burner (although oddly enough, my burners are actually pretty clean at present). I have things to donate/sell, things that just need to find a place in the apartment, and things that are dirty as all get out. Time to work on all that.
  • Reading. I miss reading. I have books I want to read. I have the time to read said books. Now I just need to put those things together. 
  • Bullet Journaling/Non-Planner Datebook/Workbooking stuff. I want to write on paper. 
  • Running. Oh, it's time. 
  • Making business cards. I've gotten tons of compliments lately on knitted stuff I've worn, and the best I can do is jot down the name of my Etsy shop. I'd like to be able to whip out a business card.

Maybe there are other things, but making the list is starting to feel like work, so I'm going to stop. 

What's on your to-do list lately?
