My goals for this month will be as follows:

i) Stop spending (I've been able to get a handle on the online shopping, but I've been to Marshall's twice in the past 2 days, and managed to buy 1 handbag, 3 scarves, and some Turkish delight (Why do they stockpile the Turkish D?  Who even eats that shiz (besides me)?).  It is not lost on me how tantalizingly close I am to $30k.  Can I make it by... February?;

ii) Contemplate hiring a life coach and a stylist so I can finally get shit done/have a 12-piece wardrobe and never have to think about clothes-shopping again;

iii) Learn new things.  Sewing, for instance.  I should do that.  Start making jewelry.  I should do that too;

iv) Take better care of myself (i.e, no more Turkish delight, cigarettes, or weeks without shaving my legs).  My weight, while not decreasing significantly, is fine, however.
