Monthly review: March 2015

Wow. That was actually a really full month. I hadn’t realized it day by day, but wow. I got deeper into making things, sewing enough tops so that I can wear something I made whenever I want. I cooked food that people enjoyed. I picked up yoga again, and I’m working on building habits for strength and flexibility. I learned a lot about people and about myself.

Last month, I wrote that I expected March to focus even more on personal projects:

  • finish a few more tops in this season’s colours. Done!
  • bake a few pies for Pi Day. Didn’t do, but I brought egg tarts instead.
  • work on a few personal projects. Yup!

Following up on my reflection on otium: that was an excellent use of discretionary time, and I can’t wait to see what April will be like. Next month, I look forward to:

  • collecting more ideas and skills
  • working on some personal projects
  • and building biking + yoga habits, yay!
