In the meantime, keep calm and stay epic,


  • I have to say: your goal lists are the best I’ve seen! So organized! (And also: so many goals!)

    • awww thanks!! I love organization even if my anxiety says no sometimes. <3

      • Anxiety sucks 🙁 I can’t do much when it kicks hard 🙁 I love what you do with all the lists 😀

        • Thaaaanks <3
          Anxiety is just blah. Mental health in general can kick my butt x_x

  • B.

    I think hitting up new places to eat is a great goal! Talk about fun!

    • Definitely! When we’re not out of town, we tend to just go to the same few steakhouses we really enjoy. When out of town, we grab local food which is normally great. Time to start being a tourist in our own area!

  • Your goals are definitely a lot better organized than mine. I have about two goals and a hundred little goals that fall underneath of them. One of my big goals is to get organized, so I think laying out all of my little goals should be where I start organizing!

    • Having broad and specific goals is great! That would be a great way to start, even if it’s just for yourself!

    Nice goals! Yoga is such a great form of exercise, I need to start getting back into it.
