May Challenge Wrap-Up

I almost hit an alligator on the road. No shit. It was only about 4 feet long, but he was halfway in my lane before he finally went, “Shit, that big thing’s gonna run over my head” and skedaddled. I live in the South, ya’ll. For realz.

But down to business. The May challenge was to work like I meant it, and boy I meant a lot. I figured working 30 hours a week was good, but I usually worked at least a few over, did physical labor I swore to my boss I wouldn’t do, knit like a maniac, and still had some time to cook. I was crazy busy.  Remember that I missed a ton of class because I couldn’t get up for my 10:30 class that was 5 minutes away last semester? 5:30 am anyone? Ha! I did it, and with a one hour commute no less! I’m turning into a grown-up-shaped little girl.

May Challenge: Success! And I even got paid to do it!

June Challenge: Clean the apartment in 4 phases.

This one is really going to be a challenge. I’m starting off easy with week one consisting of the bathroom, kitchen, and foyer. As of now, the bathroom is scrubbed and the kitchen is in progress. I figured they’re easier and maybe they’ll inspire me.

I’ll need all the inspiration I can get because week 2 is the computer room, week three is the living room/bedroom, and week 4 is the craft room otherwise known as the room I forget I have because I keep the door closed and don’t go in there. If you’ve been following this blog for any length of time, you may have noticed all the desperate cleaning attempts. For some of us it’s harder than normal.

Plus, I’ll be graduating in December without the slightest clue as to where I’ll be or what I’ll be doing. I’ve been trying to chuck all unneccessary stuff in my life so it’ll be easier to pack and move, but haven’t had the results I’ve wanted. Hopefully this month will point me in the right direction.

I’ve got some weekend adventure pictures still waiting to be posted and, if all goes well, I may have a FO by the end of the summer. Let’s see shall we?
