Birthday Weekend!

My birthday was this Sunday. It was...okay. To be honest I really missed my family and boyfriend. I talked to all of them but it just wasn't the same. Still exciting to have my birthday! I was trying to think of what goals I should make for this year. The big one is that I decided that I'm going to make it my goal to do the absolute best to fully follow through with any goals I make this year. I want the next year of my life to be the best one ever! (22 is my lucky number, so this should be a good year!).

This is also a very exciting year for me as I'm starting law school and I'll be getting closer to being a "real adult"! I'm going to take full advantage of law school. Over the next week or two I'm going to think about exactly how I'm going to do that. I also want to make sure that I continue to work towards my "personality goals". Its important to me that I am a compassionate, caring individual who is able to form strong friendships with others, especially my family and boyfriend. 

This weekend was pretty fun. On Saturday I went to downtown and finally went to the Experience Music Project Museum, which I really enjoyed. Its basically an interactive museum on aspects of music and music history, which I really enjoyed. 

It also had this really cool guitar sculpture!

I also went shopping and bought an awesome pair of burnt orange trousers (I'd been looking for a pair like this!). Lastly, I went to Pike Place Market which was a lto of fun. I wandered around for a while and bought a few things including culinary lavender. (I'd been wanting to try it since I read about it on some other blogs!). So far I haven't done much with it other than making some tea, which was good. I also (finally!) went to the first ever Starbucks! I bought a cold drink mug there, which I'm looking forward to using!

I've also been reading two books this weekend - The Four Hour Body (I think this is a sort of stupid book, but it is making me think about things, which I'm enjoying!). The big thing that I've come up with is to wait 5 minutes before eating candy/chips/dessert etc. I'm also making sure that I put everything on a plate, which is helping with portion control. (I'm trying to think back about new habits that I've been successful in creating. I do better with small easy to implement changes, baby steps).

Today (Sunday) was quiet day. I talked to my family and boyfriend, watched a bunch of Bones and went on a walk around the lake. It was a pretty wonderful day! 

I also decided that I am going to fight to make this year the best one so far!
