5 Epic Things That Happened This Month:

+Bought new skates! And they're starting to feel more comfortable! Not only was the act of getting new skates awesome, but I bought these myself. The biggest purchase of my life. I'm very, very proud of them.

+Finished learning routines with my Theater on Ice team. :) Honestly, working with brilliant choreographers is the best part.

+Finished my Entrepreneurship class! It feels so good to have this over with. It was an easy A, but unfortunately that translated to busy work and I hate busy work.

+Made the resolution (cuz new years. Or something) to be better at spending time with people. I know it sounds silly, but it's very easy for me to focused on skating and school and work and completely ignore relationships. But this month, I've started actively working on meeting people face to face and making the time to hang out, and keep in touch.

+Tried so many different coffees. Re-discovered Gatorade. Found out I actually like Moxie. 

Goals for Next Month:

+Participate in the 28 Day Heart Opening Yoga Project over at Yoga by Candace! I'm planning on working on Mermaid's pose. I'll keep you posted!

+Finish a couple of books. Right now I'm in the middle of Frankenstein, Rapture in the Deep, Great Expectations, and The FitzosbOsborne's In Exile. Time to prioritize reading!

+Get in the habit of not snoozing my alarm so much.

+Hang out with people! Be an initiator! 

On the Blog:

+This Month I told you about my new skates, my thoughts on the 2015 Nationals Ladie's Freeskate, and a snow-day list of stuff to remember.

Hope your January was full of hustle and inspiration, and here's to a February filled with love and joy! Happy weekend! xoxo

PS-This outfit is completely un-staged and real. While it might seem a bit 'uninspired', it's literally what I wear to the rink everyday. I snapped these pictures 10 minutes before I left for my second practice of the day.

headscarf: hand-me-down.
scarf: eastern states exposition.
coat: christmas present (some sport store. helpful, I know).
leggings: ny2 sportswear
sneakers: filia via kohls

For those curious: underneath is tank top topped with a long-sleeved tee, and I've got full tights on under the leggings. :)
