New Things to Try
1. Actually sticking to a book buying ban.
I already get a monthly Owlcrate, so I’m guaranteed a new book every month. I’m moving soon, so the least I can do is stop going to the bookstore to buy more physical books. I’ll limit myself to trading a stack of books for a much smaller stack at the used bookstore, my monthly Owlcrate, and Kindle book deals I just can’t pass up. I feel like that’s beyond fair.
2. A new morning routine.
I spend way too much time going through email and social media when I wake up instead of hopping out of bed. I am going to try to cut back on this, only address notifications (which I’m not likely to have), and take 5 minutes to do some yoga or stretching.
3. A strange sporting event.
I worked an event last week at a professional lacrosse game. I was outside of the arena, so I didn’t get to see the game, but it sounded like the crowd was having a great time. My boss got us all tickets and I’m going as a spectator today. I’ve never seen a lacrosse game, nor am I into sports, but I like the idea of trying something different and having fun with coworkers.
4. Less sugar in my coffee.
I actually make lattes every morning because I’ve always preferred them to regular brewed coffee and my espresso machine is amazing. I’ve moved from flavored syrups to Raw Sugar, using 2 packets. My plan is to cut back to 1 packet and eventually make regular lattes.
5. Wearing lipstick.
I wear makeup everyday and I feel like I’m pretty decent at applying it, but I’ve always stayed away from lipstick. I carry my medicated SPF chapstick and call it a day. I think I’m going to try to wear some pigment on my lips, but that means trying various types of lip color until I find one that doesn’t make my face break out. We’ll see how far this new thing goes..
