Husband has an interview for a job at the other end of the state sometime in September.  Until then, everything is on hold. So, progress in that I've packed lots of stuff but no progress because we don't know if we're gonna move across the city or across the state.

Interview put off until the end of the month.  Still waiting and packing.  Sad

Let's make this a bit more measurable:  No soda, period, for one month straight.  (Currently that's until 9/13.)  After that I'll lighten up a little for special occasions and such, but the point here is to break the habit and make it genuinely a treat rather than something I just automatically reach for.

Done!  Yay!

I did have one evening where I did have a Coke.  Circumstances beyond my control, though--it was literally soda or nothing.  I was at a family reunion, the tap water had gotten fouled somehow, we were renting a space so there was literally nothing else on-hand, and the person sent out to buy bottled water for whatever reason decided to bring back soda instead.  ::sigh::  Someone else did go out and get some later, but not until after I'd already had a glass of Coke.  Anyway, so I decided that didn't count against me.

I think I might call this the final update, so I can rethink how I do my goal planning for this thread. I seem to caught in between ambition and my real to-do list.  Undecided

Guts:
1. Meditate 9 times.--Four done. I don't think I'll make my goal, so let's call it half done.
2. Go hiking at Mt. Rainier.--Done!
3. Go hiking in Ho Rainforest.--Failed. I've done some good hikes in other places though!

Yarn:
1. Finish crocheted gloves.--Hah. Failed. I'll keep working on them.
2. Find project for the Sinister Pink Yarn. --Done!

Flour:
1. Bake something for Gillian.--Done!

Crowds:
1. Make Father's Day card for Dad.--Done!
2. Go to one knitting/crochet circle at yarn store of my choice.--Done!

Books:
1. Finish Soulcraft and Nature and the Human Soul by Bill Plotkin.--I'll have finished Soulcraft by equinox, so another half done.
2. Begin First Draft in 30 Days by Karen Wiesner (and work on Wake in conjunction with it).--Failed.
3. Create mini-book shrine for Brighid.--Failed, but I'm taking my bookbinding class that I hope will give me some skills/the chance to make it.

Money:
1. Save $1,000 in my Foreign Funds account.--Another half done.

Work and Other Icky Grown-Up Stuff
1.  Keep job -- FAILED!  Sad

1.  Dedicate at least one hour per week to current WIP -- I can't remember when the last time I even touched the flashdrive it's on

FINAL UPDATE

June
1. Bills to be paid: credit card (300) and tuition deposit (200).
2. Household stuff: finish hanging up/putting away my clothes; find something for me to live in in the yard (either a yurt or a trailer); go through furniture, etc, and decide what to keep and what to sell.
3. Read 3 of my library books.
4. Get Katz Meow off the ground. (Restaurant opening on Canada Day. I'm inventory manager/barista. OMG can we even DO this?)
5. Finish losing 20 pounds: goal 292.

July
1. Debts to be paid: 240 to my ex before the 15th; 200 to my credit card; 100 to my dad.  .66
2. Lose 20 pounds: goal 280.
3. Learning: finish my TEFL course; read 6 books from library and renew as needed. .50
4. Home life: unpack some stuff and get it integrated into my 'house'/mom's house; continue to cull things out of my life; don't strangle cat.
5. Projects: make major headway on the knit baby blanket; paint the kitchen; build shed in the yard (this means getting someone big and burly (whatever gender) to come and get rid of the spiders currently nesting in the box).  .33

August
1. Learning and home life: finish TEFL course; build sheds for stuff; get patio finished before birthday; get ready to move -- ie, unpack stuff from garage, go through, decide what's coming to Nanaimo. --Well, I moved. So .25 pass.
2. Personal joy: send off registration and money for Pirates and Fairies; plan for new tattoo. 
3. Buy myself a netbook. --My ex sold me his for cheap, and I don't have to pay for it till my loan comes in.
4. Projects: finish baby blanket; start knitting hat; finish crochet scrabble tile bag.
5. Buy books for school ahead of time, online and cheap.

September
1. School: get off on the right foot this semester; don't become bogged down with social life; don't audition for [m]any plays. .66. The social life surprised me.
2. Religion/spirituality: make a commitment to attend all the public temple rituals; become more active in coven; continue to be more involved in my religious life even though school has started.
3. Get mom a puppy. (Though I'm putting this in September it may happen in August; not a super-strict timeline on this.) 1.0
4. Look into joining/starting a club other than Satyr players, Immersion, or Anthropology. -Not sure yet. Club fair is next week. I'll say pass because I'm probably going to join the First Nations student club.
5. Just stay healthy. Actually doing okay with this.

General/anytime goals

1. Get a WoW character up to lvl 70 and get WotLK. (Silly, I know, but it's something I can do and I want to see WotLK content before Cataclysm comes out.) --I bought WotLK. Won't make 70 in time to make this goal. But I am 69. So that's something.
2. Finish watching season 1 of Sailor Moon.
3. Find back external harddrive and move a bunch of files to it so I have room on my computer again. Bam.
4. Keep up with the healthy lifestyle I've been doing.  -Doing well.
5. Get my guitar fixed and retuned and start to play again-I can't actually fix it until my loan comes in, and it's a month late this year...so I'm saying pass, because I did find it and I would have fixed it were I not waiting on the gov't to give me my money.


Goals: 25
Accomplished: 17.73

70.92% completed.

That's awesome! I'm proud of myself, considering life circumstances.
