Sometimes I feel like I’m the most productive over the weekend. I have more energy, more access to sunlight (on the rare occasion that the sun decides to peak out through the ever-present San Francisco fog), and usually get more sleep (yes, I’m 28 and still like to sleep in until 10am. Don’t hate.).
Here are some of my goals for this weekend, the last few days of 2012:
- Clean my apartment – I was out of town for about a week and it needs a good scrub down. The thing about cleaning aside from it being annoying is that it is also time consuming. BUT, it is also exercise. AND, it would be really nice to start the new year with a clean apartment. This is really important in some cultures.
- Finish reading for Book Club – My good friend started a book club. My good friend lives in Long Beach. Normally that would be a problem, since I live too far away to attend meetings, but thanks to modern technology (i.e. Skype) I can attend said meetings! This month’s selection is Rebecca by Daphne DuMaurier. I’ve seen the film 3 or so times and loved it. I’m about 40% through the book and am loving it even more than the film. (Although I’m imagining Frith as Mr. Carson from Downton Abbey. But whatever — it’s my brain, I can imagine whomever I please!) My goal is to finish this bad boy by Sunday night.
- Upload Photos from my DSLR – About a month ago I bought a Canon 30D DSLR and a 50mm lens. I also bought this sexy camera strap at Renegade Craft Fair in Los Angeles (except mine is mustard). My sisters are photographers, so I took advantage of their knowledge when I was at home last week to finally learn the basics. I took about 200 photos and can’t wait to get them into Adobe Lightroom (and learn how to use that!). A lot of learning happening this month.
- Finish my Online Portfolio – ‘Nuff said. I just need to get everything loaded to my Cargo Collective page and I’m sure I’ll make an announcement here and EVERYWHERE via social media. Because that’s how I roll. For now I’m happy to finally have a PDF of some of my work available.
I think this weekend will be cold and rainy in these parts, so staying indoors to accomplish all of these things shouldn’t be too difficult. Hope you all have a great weekend! Enjoy the remainder of 2012, and make the most of it!
