My One Little Word for 2012 is focus. Like I said in my original post, I'm not taking Ali Edward's OLW class, but I want to keep up with my word somehow, so I want to try to make a blog post at the end of each month with a little reflection on my word. It may not be the same format each month, we'll see!
This month, I just want to share some times I felt I was particularly focused on one thing or another.
With the new semester came a new lunch schedule, and I've found myself eating alone a couple days a week. But no worries! I've decided that this is great alone time to focus on creative thoughts and get some pleasure reading in.
But I also tried to focus on having fun outside of school, too. Ryan and I have been trying to make time to go on more dates this year. So far, we've seen a great movie and had a wonderful night at a Dallas Stars game!
Unfortunately, I did have to spend a couple sad days during January focusing on getting rest and feeling better. I was struck down by a stomach virus and a sore throat at different times this month and spent awhile in bed.
When I got back to my dorm after Christmas break, I focused for a few hours on finally getting my craft supplies out of the cardboard box they spent the last semester in and into my lovely new craft cart. I hope this will let me focus more in the future on creating!
And indeed, I was able to sit down and focus on creating things this month that I was proud of. I did a few spreads in my Smash Book, which is quickly becoming my favorite thing to do, and I even carved a few stamps and made a couple DIY embellishments!
