List 5 Things more Important in your life then getting engaged.
Hey Bees! I know waiting has been really hard on me and a few of my other bees, especially the End of the Year crowd who still has 4+ months to wait for a proposal.
So, in order to get our minds off WAITING. List the things in your life more important then getting engaged.
Maybe this will help us get back on Mr. Bee’s plan.
- Finish Summer Paper! – I have an incomplete for last semester I need to finish, Like NOW!
- Raise money to go back to school in Spring 2013. – I had to take off school next semester because i couldn’t raise the funds and refuse to take loans until I have to do Student Teaching.
- Look for better employment. – hopefully a job in education so that I can quit my day job.
- Figure out who am I going to be for Halloween.
- Make a Marrionette from scratch.
I had to really think about the last two. I tried to stay away from just writing a list of things I wan to spend money on (like unessisary purchases)
Your turn bees.

1. Get most of my Christmas shopping completed by November
2. Get my running back up to be able to withstand 10 km… I injured myself 6 weeks ago and have been in physio for the past 6 weeks!
3. Cook my first turkey this thanksgiving!
… this is hard. Because I have been following Mr. Bee’s plan to a T for the past 2 months. I already am doing a lot of things 🙂 ha ha.

@Sapphire-Dreamer: Great idea!
1) Make progress on dissertation
2) Write another grant proposal
3) Keep focusing on better eating/exercising habits, and lose 15-20 pounds!
4) Clean and de-clutter my apartment, so that whenever SO and I are ready to take the leap of living together (hopefully after engagement), I won’t have such a massive job sorting through old books, papers, clothes, etc!
5) Figure out my (dating) anniversary present for SO
