Dan - My apartment lease ends Aug 31st, so I'll probably have to decide by the end of June whether to re-sign or not. Trying to take this month to weigh out if I want to stay or leave NYC and have a month of staying put in the city to enjoy it before travel in July + August. I really want to weight it out thinking why I would be leaving, where I would go and not just leave because I can. My main goal is to be quite proactive this month, enjoying the city, getting on top of things I've been procrastinating as well as researching potential places to move. One other improvement goal I have is to be a little more focused on my side project and see it to launch by the end of the month. I'll need to dedicate some time each week, which I haven't done in the last couple months.
Colin R Colin - Read more. Signed up to Blinkist and so far it's doing a great job of letting me read books in bite-sized summaries. This way I can easily go through four or five books a day without trying too hard! Other than that, with the weather taking a turn for the better, I'm looking to spend more time outdoors, so planning to scout some quiet but sheltered outside working places. On a more whimsical note, having got bored of my facial hair pattern for the past few months, I'm hoping to settle on a new 'design' for the summer! :sunglasses: 
Kat - So many things I want to try out or improve on! I think I'll settle on those for June:
  • Go to the gym 3 times a week when I'm in Bristol (which is till the 27th). For the last month I've had good weeks and weeks when I was away and didn't do any exercise, and I can definitely feel that it's taken its toll on my fitness level. I've accepted that I'll loose a bit of fitness over the summer as it's when I travel the most, but I want to make up for it whenever I'm in Bristol or somewhere where I can go to the gym. On the up side, I'll probably do a lot more cycling, rollerskating, swimming etc. which will help balance things out, and I'll build the strength back after the summer. I also feel that it's good to take a bit of a break from the gym over the summer (when I can do more outdoor activities) to not get too bored with it - I've been going non-stop for the past few months and having more weekly breaks from it now feels good :)
  • Cycle around Bristol at least twice a week
  • Go swimming at least once this month
  • Go to cafes in the mornings on non-gym days, to break up the day
  • Try to wake up and get right out of bed (no snoozing), and wake up every day no later than 9am (8am is the target)
