Life Update - Residency and Resolutions

Hiya everybody!

I hope you're all doing well on your end of the world. I really wanted to post a life update to track what's been happening whilst my second year of residency wraps up. How crazy!! It's true that the days are slow and the years are fast! July 1st marks the first day of my LAST year of internal medicine residency. Do you know what that means? Fellowship applications. Goodness gracious, the cycle never ends in medicine. Exams - research - studystudy- work - apply - Repeat forever. 
I wanted to discuss one resolution I've stuck with since starting 2018, because I feel it's a great one for everyone to pick up: do something new every month. Thus far I've bouldered in January (this was insanely fun and I hope to do it again), I had my first massage with an RMT in February (I've been missing out my whole life), I started painting in March (first time using acrylics and doing an abstract piece), and went rollerskating in April (Zomg, I hated it because the skates were heavy and I couldn't control the people around me). I haven't decided what to do in May so I'm open to ideas!
 

Another habit I took on was daily journaling with the Happiness Planner. I finished it last month (it's 100 days) and I enjoyed it so much I picked up the 5-Minute Journal. The latter is more focused on reflection, which I wanted because the Happiness Planner included a daily schedule and daily to-do lists which I didn't need. I can't wait to look back on these when I'm older!

Now... if only I stuck with the regular exercise routine. 😑
What New Year's Resolutions have you stuck with and what has fallen off the bandwagon? Now tell me what you're doing to get back on track!

Cheers,
Chantelle
