Happy New Year House Cuppers! I hope you are all settled in at Hogwarts and your classes are coming along nicely. This is Yakattack Gryffindor 3rd year. I am taking the Ron and Harry approach on homework. I started two days later then I should have, BUT I am knitting a hat to protect myself from a horrible hex... Anteoculatia. If you are not familiar with this hex it grows antlers out of your head. I started thinking about the new term and the new year. I thought that this would be a great place for fellow students and professors to make some new year's resolutions and work together to achieve our goals for the new year! So I was thinking that we can post our Resolutions here and cheer each other on.
Here are mine:
1. Lose some weight... I would like to have a beach body by October (meaning lose around twenty pounds)
2. Drink less Diet Coke. I am going to try to cut back to two Diet Cokes a week. I will try to drink three glasses of water a day.
3. Turn in three class projects a month on top of completing an OWL
-One project will be crocheted/ all projects will be turned in when they are finished, not at the end of the month. So I am going to turn in one project a week. (No more Ron and Harry approach to homework this term)
My Progress so far...
I have worked out for an hour every night since the beginning of the year. I am still at the same weight, so there is not much change but I am hopeful. I did not drink a diet coke today but yesterday I had a huge one. I do not have a crochet project yet, but I will when I finish with the hat. I am so excited for my OWL yarn and pattern to get here. Next week I will have a picture of a finished hat and my new yarn! Tomorrow I am going to try a cucumber flavored water... I will tell you how that works. This is the year that those goals will be reached! We can do this.
OH yeah ROOOAAAR Let's keep the half of the cup we have and get the other half!
