Weekly Wishes #12

This Weekly Wishes post will be a place for me to share my goals for the week. Hopefully blogging about them will help them to actually happen!
This week's photo theme is "Warmth" so I chose a photo that was taken yesterday of me with my godson after his baptism. His family was so nice to me and so thankful that I am going to be in his life - and so am I! So rather than the temperature warmth, I went with the affection/kindness warmth (though before this picture was taken I was definitely just planning to go to Starbucks for a red cup). 

Last week I wanted to: Do my aspiration statement. I did this! And I did my resume, and I did almost every other task that I have to do right now for Peace Corps. I procrastinated, but one night just sat down and did a bunch of stuff and felt really accomplished. 
Work on some more Everyday Happy. You guys, I am fully caught up. How crazy is that? I can't believe we only have a week left. I'm going to miss this course so much! Is that weird?  
Get a gift for my godson. I did this too! I got him a card (of course), a toy, and a cross to hang on his wall. 
Make my Christmas card list! I made a rough list and decided that was good enough! Look at all the things I accomplished, guys. How awesome am I?! 

This week I want to: Do some exercise. Nothing toooo crazy, just a bike ride or two or a walk with Lilo or something. Maybe a yoga video if I'm feeling ambitious, ha! 
Learn something. I miss taking classes where I would actually LEARN things. Yes, I'm sure I'm currently learning life lessons or something but what I really want to know is stuff like: There are 62,000 miles of blood vessels in the human body. How cool is that? I've gotten a few, but do you guys have any more recommendations for ways to learn new things?
Look at some language resources. I know, learning a language would be learning something. But these things are separate in my mind. I have to learn Romanian now, so I should probably at least glance at some of the websites they sent me about that. 

Wish me luck on my goals this week, and I hope you accomplish yours too! Don't forget to link up to Melyssa at The Nectar Collective to share with everyone else!
