Transform Your Life Project #39 & #40

Happy Fall Everyone!!!

I am grateful for the fact that when you blog you can always pick up right where you left off!  Even after being away for awhile…  My life has been an absolute whirlwind these past 3 weeks.  First, we went to New Zealand and now I am in school full-time, fully immersed in the Computer Science Foundations Program.

I started out on the waiting list and thankfully got accepted into the program, but   I did not have the books and get to complete the reading before classes started.  We have started week 2 today and I am playing catch-up and doing my VERY BEST to NOT stress about being behind.

In my past academic life, I always set earlier deadlines for myself, but if I fell behind I would waste all my energy stressing about it and shutting down.  This time around, I am determined to change this about myself.  So when and if I fall behind, I am going to put my energy into learning, catching up, and moving forward.  My goal is to get ahead so I need to get to work!



Pursue a Passion

  • Create a Bucket list (my year truly begins in the fall)– I haven’t created my bucket list yet, but I did get to check off some big ticket items off of my bucket list like travel the world!
  • Write a Novel
  • Make time
  • Forget about the results
  • Master a new technology

I am glad that October has begun and I think that these goals are completely relevant to my current state in life.  I am a full-time student so paying attention will be crucial to my success.  I think that beginning some form of meditation may be a way for me to deal with my anxiety.  And school will definitely stimulate my mind in new and exciting ways!


Pay Attention

  • Meditate
  • Examine true rules
  • Stimulate the mind in new ways

Happy Fall Everyone!  Before we get into the full swing of fall, how was your summer?!?!  Did you travel places?  Train for a race?  Read a good book?  Visit a friend?  Discover a favorite “anthem-worthy” song?  Maybe you spent more time at home.  Or maybe you worked your butt off all summer long.

Please comment below to tell me more about your summer!   I would love to hear all about it!  

Have a lovely week everyone and stay tuned for posts about New Zealand!

Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,

Alana Xoxoxo
