Let's first review my September Goals. Sigh. I already know how this will look(sorry was typing to myself)
- Do NO LESS than 15 sit ups daily.
Complete an utter fail. I just don't have the motivation. My mind is not in the right place and if your mind isn't there you definitely won't achieve anything. That being said, I did start off the month awesome. About for the first 10 days not only did I do the sit ups but I also did a set of push ups with them as well. Then I slacked off. Tried to pick back up but ultimately settled back to not doing them. Maybe if I had a workout partner I would be able to accomplish more.
At least 20 blog posts for this month.
This post will actually make 20 and I know it would seem like I cheated as I am also counting spending recaps and link love but 20 post wasn't the true goal. The actual goal was to craft some quality blog post because for the previous two months I don't think I did, it felt like they I was mostly just doing mundane post like spending recaps or complaining/talking about the car and other stuff but I think for this month of September I have crafted some stellar post. This was probably the most important goal for me as I really do heart* being a part of this blogging community. Not only do I enjoy writing, I enjoy reading all of your blogs and even more than that I love the fact that we can share our opinions, help each other, motivate each other, support each other and generally just become friends and use this as an entertainment(I mean that in the nicest way it is far more than mere entertainment but it is fun) outlet. I know for some of us it is a crutch on a long hard journey but I am willing to bet this is best damn crutch you have ever used. Getting back to the goal it has been achieved and this one feels awesome.
Make the 100% club at work.
Yip yip I did it. I got to work early every day this month and didn't miss a single day. I did come close to failing one to many times as I clocked in on exactly the minute(one day the door wouldn't open and I had to run around to the other door) but I made it and I am proud. I hate being late for work as I see work as a contract and a promise that I will be there everyday and on time so long as I am physically healthy to do so. This also means that when my 8 hours are up that I can go. Touche.
- FINISH THE ABOUT ME PAGE I STARTED SINCE JUNE 16TH!
No good excuses. I just suck and am a horrible procrastinator. In my defense though, my first project for class is to build a website about me(who would have thought) and it is due October 8th. Needless to say I am having a bit of trouble working on that as well, not because I procrastinate but I just don't know how to express myself(horrible I know). I was thinking though that I would incorporate that somehow into the about me page so hopefully I will have it finished before October can disappear like the other months.
- Make a holiday gift plan.
I did put some thought into it but I haven't come up with anything worthwhile. Right now I am just hoping for some kind of windfall and then do last minute Christmas shopping. I know it's a bad plan but I really didn't have a car in the works for this year and let alone Christmas. At least I know for next year to start early in case the unexpected happens. On top of that I have two very important birthdays coming up in November and they both still have me scratching my head. Sigh.
I think that's it for September. I don't have any specific goals for October, just continue to be early for work. Right now I am just letting my ship drift on the ocean and keeping my eyes open for the unexpected. My plan for October is just to spend less than I earn and pay bills/debt. As of right now I am feeling all cool, calm and collected. That's it for September. Bring on October and let us see how it fares.
