Thank goodness last week already ended! I went on a hiatus for one week straight to focus more on the final exams and my work. Today, my sembreak officially commences and it’s time to gear up everything that I needed to do this October! Remember when I revisited my 2015 goals and resolutions? Well, I won’t miss this one-month break and waste my time on totally unproductive things. From here on, I’m ready to make a change!
By the way, guys, my blog has been nominated for Bloggys – Philippine Blogging Awards, and I just wanted to say thank you for your continued support until now! Voting period is until October 31st, so if you could give me a little love and just a little bit of your time by voting, please vote for chasingbleu.net here: bloggys.ph/section1. I would really, really appreciate it!
Okay, on to the point of this post. Since I was stuck in school for five months doing absolutely nothing but failing my subjects (half-kidding at that.. I hope), it is finally time to recuperate and create some activities that would jumpstart sembreak 2015!
Are you ready?
Accomplish my Sembreak TBR List
TBR stands for To Be Read, and I’ve got piles of it since the first of January! I need to tick them off one by one so I could accomplish one of my 2015 resolutions, which is to read at least 50 books! I’m nothing close to 10 so that’s pretty sad. Hopefully this will help me decrease the amount of books I need to finish. (But when do they ever decrease? Every bookworm’s list is ever growing!)
Learn a new computer language
I’m so stoked! I’m planning to enroll monthly in an online class that doesn’t even cost half of my tuition fee. This way, I could really assess on my growth in terms of skills and knowledge (and not just competing against my classmate’s grades). Though I’m a Computer Engineering student, I don’t really feel like sticking to mathematics and circuit lessons. I know it’s part of the course, but really, I wanted to innovate something that doesn’t include subjects that don’t even interest me. This one is a great start!
Stick to my fitness goal
I’ve re-started on my gameplan to get fit once again despite having a couple of setbacks the last couple of months. I’m not shaming my body right now, but really, how did I let this happen to me? I cannot comprehend how I looked so terrible and oddly different right now. This is my cue to take fitness seriously this time. I know I’d mentioned this in my last post here, but that one was a reminder of how I could start all over again. I’ll be on to fewer food adventures in the next few weeks while I try to achieve this. I’m documenting a few of my progress, too, just in case somebody out there gets motivated or something. *grins*
Catch up with some old friends
I feel so terrible that I haven’t had the time to meet up with some of my friends back in high school. I can’t wait to finally be reunited with them and catch up on some bulky sets of hilarious (or not) news. This is one of the things I look forward to the most this semestral break!
Get rid of a lot of stuff in my closet and room
I’m also planning to have an online garage sale where I could sell some things I bought but never got to use. I’m such an impulsive buyer. A lot of clothes in my wardrobe are those that I wasted my money on. I eventually don’t like to wear them because it’s either I’m too fat to fit into it, or too flimsy for my liking.
I’ll be on my way to play badminton with the boyfriend in the morning today, and I’m also trying to work on my blog’s backlogs from the past few months. So much work to do; I hope time slows down!
