Hello May!

May. May! It is literally beyond me where this year is going!! I can't believe it's already time for me to share my goals for the month that always feels like the beginning of summer - in spirit, if not in weather! I don't know about you but I'm definitely ready for long, warm evenings, pub beer gardens and flip-flops...
Hello May
Finish reading two books. I struggled with this one last month so I'm hoping to dedicate a little more time to reading this month - if I manage to finish two books by the end of May, I'll be back on track for my goals of twelve books this year... I'm halfway through My Son's Not Rainman by John Williams, which I'm really enjoying, though I'm not sure what to read next. I have a few on my reading list for the year so I may just pick at random!
See friends at least twice. This shouldn't be too hard as my friends are having a housewarming party mid-month so one box is already ticked! I'm really looking forward to seeing their new home and having a good catch-up with everyone.
Get sweet treats back to "treats" rather than "daily snacks". I've gone a bit mad since the end of Lent and have been eating actual ridiculous quantities of chocolate, cake and goodness knows what else. I've noticed my skin has got really bad around the same time, so I have a sneaking suspicion the two are linked... Time to cut back and hopefully make my eating habits a little healthier - starting with taking fruit to work and actually eating it, instead of ignoring it in favour of the office biscuits...
Get out on my bike at least once a week. I'm hoping for some decent weather to make this possible but I'll be happy with an average of once a week, so 4-5 times over the month... They don't have to be hugely long rides, around 15-20 miles is enough for me as that's a good hour to an hour and a half. We've all got to start somewhere, right!?
And finally... less of a goal and more of a hope, really:
Get a place on the Clinical Psychology doctorate programme. I've got my interview in a couple of weeks and I'm really not sure how to feel about it - I wasn't expecting to get any interviews this year as it was my first time applying, so part of me feels like anything additional is just a bonus - but on the other hand, of course, I'd love to be successful! All I can really do though is make sure I'm as prepared as possible and give it my best shot - fingers crossed!!

Aside from my interview and the housewarming party, I'm going to see John Bishop with my Mum towards the end of the month, which I'm really looking forwards to - I've seen him before and he's hilarious, so that should be a good night!
What have you got planned for May? I've love to hear about any goals you're setting yourself for the month!

  1. Well done for reading 2 books! I'm really struggling to fit in the time to read these days. Hopefully wish a holiday coming up I'll find the time to read at least one book.

  2. I am going through about 1 book every couple of months, couldn't do one a month. Enjoy John Bishop and the house warming and good luck with your interview x

  3. Sounds like you have quite a busy but interesting month ahead. Good Luck for your interview :) I'm doing a psychology PhD (not clinical) at the moment.

  4. I too can not believe it's already May, I am stuck in a runt that I can't even seem to put goals together for this month. Good luck with yours

  5. Yes to getting out on our bikes more! I just had mine tuned up and am so excited for our first sunny day. I wish you the best of luck with the doctorate program. Good for you to reach for the stars!

  6. The clinical psychology programme sounds pretty good and I'm with you on the sweet treats - I've been just as bad lately!

  7. Enjoy seeing John Bishop. we enjoy watching him and Good luck with the interview xx

  8. I can't remember the last time I read a book, I also can't remember when I last caught up with my friends! How bad is that? Life just gets so busy at times, doesn't it? Good luck with your interview & enjoy John Bishop :) xx
