oct goals

 

Finish reading these. Anything with a strike through them was from the past month’s reading list and have been completed. I feel like the list just grows bigger and bigger each time, I really need to dedicate more time to reading. Maybe. I guess at least five books a month is good, right? It could have been way worse.

  • Daughter of the drow by Elaine Cunningham
  • American Gods by Neil Gaiman (Started but didn’t finish)
  • A Warriors Journey by Paul Thompson and Tonya Cook
  • Last flight by Liane Merciel
  • The Masked empire by Patrick Weekes
  • War for the oaks by Emma Bull
  • Death from a top hat by Clayton Rawson
  • The nature of the universe by Fred Hoyle
  • Saturn by Ben Bova
  • Terrifying Tales by Edgar Allan Poe
  • The Invisible Man by H.G Wells
  • Coraline by Neil Gaiman
  • Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

Buy more frozen veggies. I tend to never use up any fresh veggies in time, so it would really save me money to buy them frozen. I mostly use them in soups and stews so it wouldn’t really make a difference for me whether they’re fresh or frozen, honestly.

Get better at planning ahead. I often find myself sitting there, just wondering what to do next or what my plan really is. I need to schedule, I need to plan, I need to figure out what to and when to do it. Why is it so difficult when it in theory should be easy? People say you should just enjoy life and live for now, but it stresses me out so badly to not have any plan whatsoever.

Exercise more. Again, always, it’s a constant struggle. At times I feel like I’m doing great, at times I’m doing not so well. I do work out fairly regularly but I guess I’m just not doing enough. Gotta push myself to be better. It’s a struggle but it should definitely be possible.

Stop being impulsive. Especially when it comes to purchasing things. I need to think twice before buying something. Do i really need it? Will I use it more than once before discarding or abandoning it? I’ve never been good at that and I’ve often purchased something just because I think I need it at that moment. Then I never use it again… I hope I’m not the only one so I can stop feeling so bad about it.

Do even better at this work program. I’ve been attending weekly meetings, going on weekly hikes and walks with a group of people, I’ve been working out and now I’m getting more work experience by helping out at a grocery store a few times a week. It is definitely better than having nothing to do and I’m really looking forward to getting more work experience from other places too. I’ve worked at a grocery store before and it wasn’t my favorite thing to do but it’s way better than nothing. Plus, the more I do the more money I get.

Spending less. That was one of my goals for September, and I really have! I guess it’s a given since I’ve had no income, but I’ve been very good at sparsely using any money. I’ve only purchased what is absolutely necessary. Sadly my skin has suffered from that since I can’t afford the luxury of the skincare products I’ve used.. Really looking forward to getting back on track with that when I get paid this month!

September goals

September 4, 2017 — 13 Comments

sept goals

Some goals will carry over from the previous month, some will be updated and some will be new. I feel like it’s really nice to have goals like these to keep yourself motivated throughout the month. The only unfortunate thing is that sometimes time moves by so fast that you’ll barely even get to finish any of your goals.

Finish reading what is on my currently reading list on Goodreads. I have finished some, added new ones, retired some. I’m really indecisive when it comes to reading, and finishing books. Any book titles with a strikethrough have been finished and most likely mentioned in my latest “What I read in…” post.

  • Hannibal by Mirko Jelusich
  • The Calling by David Gaider
  • Daughter of the Drow by Elaine Cunningham
  • Stars above by Marissa Meyer
  • American Gods by Neil Gaiman
  • A Warriors Journey by Paul Thompson and Tonya Cook
  • The masked empire by Patrick Weekes ( a re-read)
  • Last Flight by Liane Merciel

Do well in this work program I have been assigned to. I was contacted by a work counselling company that wanted to help me to find a job suited to my health needs. I’m really happy because I get financial compensation while doing this too. One step closer to a new job! I just have to make sure to do enough activities to complete it all.

Work out more. I started out well in August, then life took over, my brother’s wedding stress made things a bit difficult.. But I need to try to go back to what was.. Which was working out at least 4 times a week.

Be better at staying organized. I love creating new systems for myself when it comes to storage, taking notes, plan my time and so on. Sadly I also abandon new systems just as fast as I start using them.. I need to think of something universal.

Spend even less than what I’m doing now. I don’t think there is anything wrong with spending less and saving more. Though I think it’s kind of stupid that you work for an expendable income, but lord help you if you ever want to actually use that money..

Get better at drawing on a winged liner. I just suck at it. Really bad.. Need to fix that asap! I keep seeing pictures of people with perfect wings and it upsets me that I can’t do it too.

Do you have any goals for September? Tell me about them!

August goals

august

Find a new job. Hopefully one where I can accommodate my injuries, and one where I actually feel comfortable working at. I have had a lot of bad work experiences through the years so I feel like it should be my time soon to have a job that I enjoy. I also hate being unemployed, having nothing really useful to do, it’s slowly but surely driving me crazy.

Finish reading what is on my ‘currently reading’ list on Goodreads. I have five books there now that I need to finish, it’s a bad habit of mine to just start reading a lot of books and never finishing them. Here’s my current list:

  • Hannibal by Mirko Jelusich
  • The Calling by David Gaider
  • Daughter of the Drow by Elaine Cunningham
  • Stars above by Marissa Meyer
  • American Gods by Neil Gaiman

Make more health-conscious choices. I need to stop saying yes to soda, need to stop buying snacks. Need to stop buying candy. I need to drink more water, more tea and less sugary stuff. I need to make more food from scratch instead of settling for processed or ready made meals.

Work out at least every other day. I’ve been good at working out but sometimes I feel like I’m too tired, even though I know I should push myself through it. I’ve at least been working out around 3 times a week, but it needs to be more. With every other day it would be about 4 times a week, which is better than just three.

Spend as little as possible to preserve what money I have in my savings account. Now that I’m unemployed and don’t have a steady income, I really need to save as much as I can to avoid running out of money. It is difficult when you have bills to pay and food to buy, and you can’t make any unnecessary purchases. There’s so much that I want to buy that I cant, and it sucks.

What are your goals for August?
