- Buy a beach pass. I have lived in Rhode Island--The Ocean State--for nearly four years and have never actually swam at a beach in this state. It's criminal. I've walked on the beach; I've run the Newport 1/2 marathon twice which ends on the beach, but laying out a towel and frolicking in the waves? Hasn't happened. I'm done waiting for someone to take me to the beach, I'm going by myself.
- Stay on track with spending. My income is lower since my hours have been cut at one job, but I should be able to work a little more at my other one. I need to remind myself though, even though I have some extra time--mustn't go nuts! I need to plan out some adventures, and there are plenty of awesome free things to do locally in the summer.
- Keep focused on the retirement fund. I know retirement is a superfantastically long time away, but I need to start this fund with a decent chunk of change so it can grow for many, many years. I can't lose sight of that, even though putting away lots of money feels futile at this point.
- Remember minimalism. I'm not a super minimalist, but I really do have everything I need to live comfortably. I need to remember that when I'm tempted.
