Monthly Recap - May

I'll spare you the standard state of shock I find myself in that another month has come and gone. Here is how this month played out.

Read the standard works cover to cover: The Old Testament is really kicking my trash! It is so long, but I am learning a lot. I have to admit that in setting a goal to read it so quickly, I'm not doing a very in depth study, but I'm covering the material and that's sort of a first. I'm hoping to regain some focus so I can learn more. My handy chart suggests that I should be on Ezekial 18 for the end of May. It took a lot of work, but I made it!

Walk 500 miles: Another one that took a little extra effort this month. I was doing well until I came home from vacation and started getting busy with the missionaries, institute, and other evening activities. I'm going to have to redirect some attention here so it's not quite so hard to get the miles in. With a last minute push and an eight mile walk, I was able to reach my goal of 42 miles this month!

Grow my hair out and donate it: I'm still hangning in there. My mom put a french braid in my hair for the first time in about 15 years!! And all of the hair went in it!! It was very momentous.

Ride in a taxi cab: I'm not going to lie, I was a little nervous about this. I've watched a few too many movies and TV shows where women get in a taxi cab alone and they either don't get out, or don't get out in good shape. But I got over my fear, hailed my first taxi cab (which was a little bit of a let down - he was already waiting), and loved it!! Such a fun thing to cross off my list.
