Good Bye June, Hello July

The end of June marks half the year and 1/3 of being 27 gone.
I always get a little anxious when I talk about time passing. To me, there is never enough time in a day/year/life. My boyfriend has finally kicked the habit of teasing me at 10am by telling me "the day is nearly half over." The panic that ensues after scares him so much he's stopped hehe. 

This is why I set goals. Goals help me accomplish a days work without the panic. I write lists for everything and feel an amazing sense of accomplishment when I cross something off that list. I'm just weird that way.

That is why I set my 27 goals for 27.
It's what helps motivate me and keeps it visual. I like visual.

So here are the goals I have accomplished since setting them. Some are still a work in progress, but here's how I'm doing!

 27 GOALS FOR 27
  • Run three 5Ks - 2 of 3 down!
  • Get caught up on my taxes *blush*
