Well, I managed the physical mountain. That was great fun, as a group of 13 of us headed out to Chiba prefecture and headed up a mountain. We also found a quintessential little shrine, carved into the rock face of the mountain. So kawaii! (Cute in Japanese)
Hike up Mt Sengenrei.
Mountain 2: Mountain of Weight
Some progress has been made, but this might take a while.
Keep going, try and increase my exercise levels.
Mountain 3: Mountain of Paperwork
I managed to submit my tax return on time, but it was a challenge to find the necessary documents for it.
Find an organisation system that works for me and then start sorting through the papers and filing them.
Mountain 4: Mountains of Photographs
This is more like a mountain range than just one mounain! I had a super holiday in Vietnam last year, so at the moment I am trying to reduce their number, put the date onto the name. I will keep going, slowly but surely.
Complete sorting the Vietnam photos, reducing the numbers to at the most 200! Given we had 2000, that is quite a tall order!
Mountain 6: Mountains of Creative Projects
A friend and I have given ourselvesthe challenge of Scrapbooking 2 pages a month. This month, I am creating pages of our Vietnam trip, as I am creating a photobook of the trip for ourselves and my parents who travelled with us. I have managed to Scrap the pages, but the photobook has not made much progress.
Complete the photobook, so I don’t have to buy another month’s credit.
Mountain 1: Mountains of Books
Reading…. hmmm what’s that?
I have given the my Cubs and Beaver pack a readathon challenge for the month of February to raise money for Room to Read. In light of my wonderful recent reading record (I haven’t read a novel since the summer!), I am giving myself the challenge of reading at least 2 fiction books during February.
Ok- I’m not going to conquer the mountains, if I tackle them at this rate. Granted, small steps- but I need to actually take some steps to make progress!
February- a fresh start!
