2017

I kinda missed the whole end of 2016 post thing, not that I usually do one, or did anything majorly significant last year that I hadn’t already blogged about. So I thought I’d skip it and move right on to 2017. 🙂

I have no hard set goals in 2017, new years resolutions are not really my thing. I suck at goal setting! However I do have some general goals that I would like to try and achieve. Firstly, I would like to blog more – mainly to just have a journal of my life, how I’m feeling, progress on power lifting, and just general thoughts. I have no “schedule” for that, however I do have an idea that is going to help me with another goal, which is…. drum roll! (Not that it’s exciting!)

I hate making post titles

I’m so uncreative. So many people probably wonder why I even have a blog. The reason is because I like to talk, even if it’s essentially just to myself!

I’m just writing a little update on life, which will include my weight loss journey and uni so far. 🙂

My weight loss journey is actually going really well. In June I attempted to do Junk Free June, but my own version of it – which was just to try and cut out as much sugar as I could. Not entirely – I have a slight sugar addiction and didn’t want to end up cranky and yelling at everyone. But I only had maybe one teaspoon of sugar on my oats, on one day, or I had a normal coffee from the cafe instead of a flavored one (we don’t have sugar free syrups in NZ like many American Starbucks do). I think I did well. I would say I slipped up a couple of times – having a slice of cake or an energy drink because I just wanted to feel happy on that day. Nothing negative happened, just letting myself down a little on those days.

Just Do It

JUST DO IT, JANA! OPEN WORD AND FINISH YOUR ASSIGNMENTS! JUST DO IT!

I need to take his advice. But here I am, posting this video just in case you guys haven’t seen it. And updating again on my life. Because that’s what this blog is for, dur!

I need to work on two assignments.

Argh.

Anyway. Moving on.

Last week I had an interview with the Dept. of Corrections, to my surprise they have a team that works with the RMA, doing compliance for the prisons and other buildings / properties they own.  When I got the email and then the phone call, I posted right away to Facebook. I’m the type of person that over-shares. OK? 😛

Internships, jobs, what is my life?

This post is nothing specific, just an update on my life at the moment, I guess. I just want to note that I don’t post on exact days or a certain amount of times a week (Or even consecutively in a week) because I don’t feel like forcing myself to blog. My life isn’t too interesting. I post mainly to get out my feelings. I think I’ve said this a million times before, haha!

Anyway, recently I went to a weekend for Maori Students Associations. I unfortunately got called away on the Friday night due to a family issue that after I heard about, I didn’t really feel like being around people I didn’t know. It didn’t even turn out to be a major thing. Anyway, the weekend (well, the Thursday / Friday I was there) it was good. I meet some cool people, got over my fear of meeting people (I hope, I guess we’ll see what happens the next time I have to introduce myself!) I didn’t make any “connections” or whatever, but that’s probably because I left early.

Just an update #2

This post is nothing special, it’s just an update on my life, I suppose. 🙂

Firstly I just want to say hey to all my new readers! I love having people comment on my blog – not for vain reason haha, but so I can check their blogs out too! I’m reading a bunch of new blogs right now. It’s awesome getting to know people, especially ones in other countries! I love blog hopping, also, (you know, like reading their blogs, then going through their comments and reading their… readers blogs hah). It gives me something to do when I should be studying.  If you don’t want to leave a comment, you can tweet me your URL and I’ll check your blog! I love reading them!
