Plan for Bettering Myself

In my efforts to make myself better, and feel better (physically and emotionally) I have developed a weekly regimen for bettering myself.  Ideally, I would love to be like ladies of some means in Victorian times where all I would have to do is study arts and languages all day long.  Unfortunately, I have to actually work for a living.  However, I have included language studying as much as possible as it is the only useful skill I have developed to hopefully obtain a career.  I have also included dancing, as it is my preferred means of physical exercise.  Perhaps eventually I will be able to squeeze in piano or guitar, as I have tried on numerous occasions to learn both.  The dietary idea came form some research I did as to why I always feel congested.  I knew dairy was a huge culprit in causing congestion, but I had no idea that so was Gluten and Refined Sugar.  I do not find myself string enough to give up any of these entirely, especially not working in the restaurant that I do, so, I have decided to give up one at a time, one day a week.  Hopefully minimizing them in my system will help me feel better, especially coupled with eating healthier in general.

And without further ado, here is my plan:

You will notice that weekends are pretty lax.  This is mainly because this is when I am busiest and lack time to really eat, let a lone study anything.  And when I do have a weekend day off, I am usually spending it at a theme park or other event where I do not wish to limit my gastronomic choices.  I have also tried to include some socialization time so as not to further my depression.  Dancing involves socialization, as do theme park days (usually).  And I have scheduled a TV show night with my little brother to help with family bonding.

All of this will probably be constantly changed and edited, but I hope to keep you updated as to how well it works and perhaps you can try making one for yourself 🙂

Songs of the Season

So, in the spirit of the holiday season, and in my liking to make video playlists, I’ve decided to post my top 5 favorite holiday songs!

#5. This song just makes me laugh and I think this is a pretty cute video for it!

#4. What kind of dego would i be if I didn’t like this song? Also I love the part of the video where the reindeer sees the hills and is like “wtf?”

#3. I don’t know why but this has always been my favorite version of this song, and you can kinda swing to it!

#2. This song is how I light my hanukkiah! Not only is it one of my favorite bands, but it includes the blessings right in it so I can recite them along with!

#1. i will always be a little bit punk at heart and this is the best remake of any christmas song evar! Also, the dude signing it is my frickin hero! I’m gonna learn it!

 

Runners up include “Christmastime in Tinseltown Again” by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy because it’s a funny song and you can swing dance to it. And also, “Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays” by NSYNC because I got 100 on signing it in ASL and
I still remember it perfectly to this day 10 years later.
