Weekly Wishes

I had a great weekend, but I am not really in the mood to do a weekend recap today.  So instead, I have decided to participate in a weekly wishes link-up over at the Nectar Collective.  I think this a great way to give myself some short term goals for the week.

-Make new friends.  I know this may sound dumb, but I have lived in Fort Collins for over a month, and I haven't made any new friends, unless you count the janitors at work.  But still, I do not really hang out with anybody on the weekends so I need to make more of a point to make some new friends.  I have a retreat/orientation for my department this weekend so hopefully I can make some friends there.

-Write my book club posts for Life of Pi and The Help.  I have these posts half written, but I have yet to sit down and finish them.

-Enjoy the beauty of nature.  This past weekend, Noah and I camped stayed in a cabin in Poudre Canyon, and all weekend I was amazed by the beauty of nature surrounding me.  I don't know if there will ever be a day when I am not in awe of these mountains.  The mountains are beautiful but so are all the plants and creatures around me.  I just need to be more aware.

At Lake Agnes, I am still in awe of how breathtaking it was.

Do you have any wishes for this week?


  1. I've been looking for a book to read. Would you suggest Life of Pi? I've read The Help.

    I hope meet some great people at the retreat and make some good friends! :)

    Good luck with all your goals this week!
