2. Shoot 1 roll of film per month. 10/12
Three-Hundred & Three
I got a little bit of a late start because I had to buy some film. It’s not as easy to find as it used to be! I got some a couple of weeks into the month and loaded into my Diana Mini because I haven’t shot anything in it in over a year. It’s shoots more frames than you usually get from a 24 exposure roll, though, so it might not have been the best choice for a month when I got a late start, I haven’t quite finished the roll yet.

7. Reach Advanced Level yoga with Erin Motz’s DoYouYoga course.

Bharadvaja's Twist

5 current favorite poses. Untitled crow camel

Some things are still a bit beyond me (side crow, flying anything) in the advanced classes, but I can tell I’ll get there with practice. I did manage to do every single part of one of the full body flow classes, it felt amazing!

8. Finish 5 video games 3/5

28. Write a list of major cleaning projects and do them all!

  • move all furniture and clean behind/under it. (fridge, dressers, couch, entertainment center.) (Progress: Kitchen, bathroom, living room done in month 6. One half of bedroom done in month 7.)
  • clean the fridge out. (Progress: Fridge done.)
  • take ALL THAT RECYCLING so the cozy system can start working. (Progress: Done.)
  • take everything to Goodwill. (Progress: One carload done.)
  • finish each room. If I still have to have stuff piled in a corner, at least let it be stored in a plastic tub. (Progress: Living room: Done. Laundry room: Done.)
  • closet overhaul. (Progress: Started the bedroom closet. Made a lot of hanger space, so far, need to work on the stuff that’s on shelves next!)
  • Springtime Garden Tidy. (Progress: I managed everything by the back lot, and now it’s summer and unbearable. Major progress though!)

I feel like I have reached a level of acceptance. Whatever I get done in the next two months, even if I don’t finish every task, this has been so worth it.
