Friday Wrap-Up

"A man who does not think for himself does not think at all." --Oscar Wilde

I really enjoyed writing my "What I'm For" poem-- it was liberating and fun. Often times I feel like I'm a "Plain Jane" but when I wrote that poem, it brought out all of those parts of me that make me who I am. Who I am is not a label of some kind. I've always felt frustrated that I could never be in one category or another, especially in terms of politics. Sometimes I agree with the Left side and sometimes I agree with the Right. Really though, I'm a combination of values. To some, I may seem apathetic but I'm not. Like everyone else, I have my own opinions too.

So with that being said... there are plenty of more things I could say in my poem. But when I wrote that poem last night, that's how it all came out. I did make a list throughout yesterday but when I sat down to write, it all came together in that way. I like it. I feel like I represented myself well. That was me writing in the moment.

Besides reflecting on the poem, I also wanted to share where I'm at with the things I'm working on...

Couch to 5K Running Plan: Just started the 4th week! Today was definitely the most challenging day. I'll write more about this week's plan tomorrow or in a few days.

Bible Reading Plan: August 31st marked the 50th day of reading! I'm now a few more days over that of course.

Budgeting: Just got paid today for the last two weeks... Need to re-evaluate some of my plans. So far, I feel pretty good about my spending.

Alrighty, sorry this was a little rushed at the end. I need to get ready to head downtown with my mom and sister to the first football game of the season (my alma mater is playing a Portland school tonight). We're mainly going to support my sister's boyfriend. Go #45! haha. And we're going to ride the MAX! Should be an adventure! (And in all honesty, I am dragging my feet a little bit... I'm not a huge fan of this sport)

Hope ya'll are having a good Friday night!

That is great you are doing well with spending, and reading and couch to 5k! I've heard about that last one around but I don't know too much about it. The best part of football games to me are the cuddly sweatshirts and hot chocolates! :) I hope you and your mom and sister had a great time at the game!
