- Abstinence August (I will abstain from all sweets and alcohol)
- Smarty-pants September (I will immerse myself in a new academic discipline)
- Others October (I will do something meaningful for someone else each week)
- Nothing November (I will buy nothing other than necessities for the entire month)
- Daring December (I will do one thing that scares me each week)
I'll be recording my struggles and accomplishments as they happen.
