au revoir may

wow, it's the end of may. can you believe it?! now it's time to review the goals i set myself for may:

  • finish my statement of purpose - rough draft done!! need to do another draft and finish it once and for all.
  • study for the gmat (mon-fri at least 2-3 hrs per day) - FAIL!! i studied like one day!
  • break out the scooter & RIDE!! - YES!! (pics to come)
  • be a better blogger - post more frequently and leave more comments for my fellow bloggers - LOVE you guys!! - didn't blog when i was on vacay but i tried to make up for it when i got back
  • exercise everyday (in some way, shape or form) - YES!
  • start a running program (again!!) - well, i started... ok, i did like one day! i need to (and will) do this again.
  • go to the farmers market EVERY saturday - i did this every day except for when i was in charleston and i went to the farmer's market there.
  • spend some time w/ my family - YES and had a great time!
  • have a sewing rendevouz w/ my mom - YES!! check it out here!
  • garden - YES but it's not finished yet

did you guys meet the goals you set for may? i don't think i did too bad. i think i set too many and that is why i didn't focus on the two most important which was study for the gmat and finish my statement of purpose. those two are a MUST for june!!

great job on your may accomplishments, especially the draft of the personal statement, daily exercise, & the time you spent with family & friends.

i'd love to hear more about your running program--the idea of running intrigues me, but i'm not much of a consistent walker or exerciser so i have no idea where to start

here's to a productive June!!

What's a statement of purpose?

serafina - i am just doing a copy and past from my bonjour june post:

since i can't word it better myself: "The Statement of Purpose is the single most important part of your application that will tell the admissions committee who you are, what has influenced your career path so far, your professional interests and where you plan to go from here." taken straight from
