26 before 27 (June Review)

1. Read 50+ books, 4 that are religious/spiritual in manner
Officially at 16 books.  According to Goodreads, I am 9 books behind schedule, but with a few lake weekends ahead of me, I think that I'm in a better place that Goodreads believe.

2. Visit someplace new
Done! (6/4/15)   There will be a blog with a few pictures from that trip.

3.  Make a quilt
I bought an old quilt that needs to be fixed, so this goal may be revised to pretend that fixing the quilt counts.
4.  Work out 26 times
I worked out once!  Only 25 more to go!

5.  Take more photos
I should have at least two photo posts this month if everything goes as planed.

6.  Settle into the apartment (and maybe do a photo tour when it's complete)
In my head, I would like to pretend this will happen by the end of August, just before school begins...if only because I hate the idea of possibly moving out of our apartment in the winter and not being settled in.

7.  Blog at least 4 times monthly
If you read my sad attempt at a fourth post (here) in June, you would know that so far (after beginning on a bad note), I've been succeeding at goal 7.

8.  Write two new short stories

9.  Get my passport
Mike told me this past week that I need to get my passport because one of my favorite bands is going to be in Canada in the beginning of August, so this is officially top priority, especially since I'm not entirely sure how long it takes to get a passport....

10.  Create and follow a budget
I said June, but I must have meant July with all of the success I had.

11.  Send more mail than last year
Still haven't sent any mail!!

12.  Learn to crochet
Jenna came over to my apartment the other day and taught me, but that was honestly about two weeks ago and I do not remember what we did.  I'll have to have her over another time or two before I really feel like I know what to do.

13.  Go to a winery
Nothing set in the future.

14.  Date-night with Mike monthly, at-home dates count, too!
This one was harder in June because Mike and I participated in the Whole30 challenge and that meant more staying at home, however we did go out for a movie!  We couldn't have popcorn at the theater, which was the pits, but it was a date!

15.  Take a yoga class
Hot Yoga, if I used the term properly, is coming to Grand Forks and I think I would like to imagine that I'll try it once they officially open.
16.  Have my parents over for dinner
17.  Create a blog feature
Photography Attempt and Instagram Stories, are the two that are currently in the works.

18.  Finish my volunteering requirement for school
This needs to be done before December...maybe even a little sooner.  This month I should just look up the places that are approved as volunteer locations.

19.  Get a new bed
Done! (4/15)

20.  Go to a play at Red River's "new" theater
This one has slipped my mind more than any of the other goals...oops.

21.  Have a "no spend" week in April

22.  Have a "no spend" month in September
Thinking ahead, I don't know if this is going to happen.

23.  Study for and take my Praxis tests
Halfway done!  My next test is next Tuesday and then this one will be completed.

24.  Pay off one big credit card
I need to go through and write everything down so I can make sure that this goal happens.

25.  Create my "space"
I have my space.  I have stuff in my space.  Now I need to get the crap organized or out of my space.

26.  And one to grow.
Still a little unsure on this one.
