I felt a wave of panic as I begin drafting this post with the realization that March has arrived. Has it really been 60 days since we welcomed the New Year in Bangkok? I somehow failed to remember what I did or where I was in between January 1st and today, but I know how I did in February in terms of monthly intentions.
LAST MONTH’S GOALS IN RETROSPECT
I have to be honest—there had been slight changes in last month’s goals since Roan and I received that one thing we’ve been waiting for for almost a year. I needed to prioritize the requirements for my medical examination, and attend the 2-day appointment accordingly.
Get Back on Reading
Have you heard that I’ve finally finished reading Insurgent? The trick? I listened to its audiobook version! It was weird at first that I read the written version while listening (you know, just in case the two are different), but eventually got the hang of it. Although a bit awkward, I listened to a chapter or two while having breakfast and before I go to bed. Waiting time during my medical examination also helped me finish the book!
Resume with Closet Detox
Ah, this one’s a bit depressing. It’s never an easy task to decide which pieces should be donated or disposed and which ones I will keep. With only less than two months left before Roan comes home to get me, I’m still falling behind.
I was quite lucky to have been able to squeeze consistent blogging in last month, but I can tell that it’s going to change a bit come March. In honor of SCATTERBRAIN’s 3rd blog anniversary, I revamped the site a little for a refreshing look. What do you think?

Finalize Things to Bring to America
There’s no other time to do this, but NOW. I don’t have the luxury of time given that I could be leaving for the US in less than a month.
Prepare for Visa Interview
This is probably the most nerve-wracking of all, and I need to prepare as if I’m going to a make-or-break job interview. We’re lucky that they didn’t require us further documents other than a copy of Roan’s W-9 (which I didn’t have in the first place) because I had all original documents (i.e., marriage certificate, police clearance, etc.) mailed instead of photocopies. It goes without saying that I can’t mess this up, so your prayers are much appreciated!
