October goals.

Gosh – I can’t believe october’s here. Where did summer go?

I’m not really much of a monthly goal person, but I think this month it would be helpful for me to have a few, especially since I’m going to be having a big change and my whole life will be basically up in the air.

1. Be more outgoing. I’m naturally kind of a shy and introverted person, and being a new city where I don’t know anyone will not make things any easier on me. Β But I am a social person and I enjoy being around people, se I think a key to my happiness will be for me to go out and meet people.

2. Find a balance between studying and having a life. I’m a perfectionist so I want to learn to let go and enjoy life a little more.

3. Take care of myself. That means getting enough sleep, moderate forms of exercise and eating right. I know it’s stupid but whenever I’m busy these are the first things to get crossed off my to-do list – not so smart eh?

4. Keep up with blogging to some extent. I honestly have grown really attached to the blogging community and blogging is something I really enjoy. I imagine being at uni will change things around here somewhat – but I want to keep up with it at least a bit.

So cheers to the new month – yummy oatmeal breakfasts…

Oatmeal/oatbran topped with strawberry jam and almonds

and creative sandwhiches….

The best sandwhich I’ve had in a while – fresh mutigrain bread, lightly fried tofu, nutritional yeast, italian spices, tomato and lettuce.

falling leaves

and cozy sweaters

and most of all – living life to the full!

PS: Totally off topic, but I saw this today and absolutely love it! My final goal would be to make this my new motto.
