Oo..but I'm interested in the paranormal blog.

As I said, right now I'm too fucking busy to make updates to a hypothetical paranormal blog.  That's not to say that I won't create one further down the line, though Wink

First update for the season.  It's been a busy week.

Finances, Work, and Other Responsible Adult Stuff:
1. Reduce debt by 5%. - Work in progress.
2. Find a new job.  - Work in progress.
3. Do all the things needed to keep car another year -  get inspection, make any necessary repairs, renew tags, and pay taxes.
4. Limit hours at day job to a maximum of 50 per week.  - Accomplished for this week.

What I'd Rather Be Doing- The Online Shops:
1. Organize and inventory all completed pieces for sale. - Looks around at mess in craft room. No, no progress yet.
2. Reach minimum sales goal for this quarter. - Not even close yet.
3. Post at least five items per week. - Accomplished for this week.
4. Blog or other marketing at least once per week. - I posted to the LunaSeas blog earlier this week. Hoorah.

Creative, Hobby, and Other Happy Stuff:
1. Dedicate at least one hour per week to the garden.- Accomplished for this week.
2. Create at least 10 new things - jewelry, poetry, sewing, etc.- Three new jewelry pieces and four new incenses this week. I'd call that progress.
3. Blogging Goals: daily posts to personal blog, weekly posts to all other blogs. - - Work in progress. I'm thinking of re-integrating my photo journal back into the Creative Depths blog.  Something to ponder.
4. Outline novel for NaNo 2010. -The outline isn't started, but I'm fairly certain that I've nailed down a plot idea. That alone is a minor miracle.

Health and Well-Being:
1. Hit 'milestone' weight by losing 10.5 pounds. -Weigh-in tomorrow.
2. Go on three long hikes. - Not a step yet, but I did buy new hiking boots today.
3. Continue to rebuild personal defenses.  - Work in progress.
4. Schedule eye exam.

Prodigal Pagan's To-Do List:
1. Update altar for summer. -
2. Do a solstice celebration ritual. - Done!
3. Add a dozen entries to personal herbal site.
4. Post three new Path Forging entries.
5. Make personal incense blend. - Done!

All Work and No Play- Fun Stuff:
1. Read three books for the sheer pleasure of reading. -One down, two to go.  I finished Gaiman's Anansi Boys this week and have started on The Night Watch by Sarah Waters.
2. Go to the local Highland Games.  -This doesn't happen until July.  Shining up the Mary Janes now.  Wink
3. Start planning for Thanksgiving getaway.  -Step one: decide where in the heck to go.   DC? Savannah? Key West? Chicago?  Not sure yet.
4. Make time for being social... offline.  -Considering the number of hours that I work and volunteer, I'm impressed that I was able to have a ten minute conversation with a complete stranger over breakfast today.  It counts.  Really.

Work and Other Icky Grown-Up Stuff

3.  Pay school the money I owe them and sign up for the internship -- Registration isn't until August

Writing and Other Creativity
1.  Dedicate at least one hour per week to current WIP -- I've been too fucking busy and tired...sadly it's not because of that particular adjective
2.  Outline this year's NaNo -- I have narrowed it down to two ideas.  Given how many storylines are normally bouncing around in my head at any given time, this is a milestone
3.  Write more poetry -- See Writing and Other Creativity #1
4.  Finish putting together September, Halloween and November playlist -- I think I have the Halloween one down pack.  The other two, otoh...
5.  Look into the feasibility of learning to play a musical instument -- WaOC #1 again
6.  Draw something and maybe try to break out the paints again -- WaOC #1 again
7.  Try a new recipe at least once every two weeks -- I still have time

Online Stuff
1.  Update blogs on a semi-regular basis -- sort of did it
2.  Decide whether or not I should create those two other blogs I've been meaning to start -- DONE!
3.  Catch up on the blogs I currently follow -- DONE!
4.  Catch up on the webcomics that I use to read -- Errrrmmmm....

Mental Health
1.  Read at least three two books for the sheer pleasure of reading -- One down, two to go
2.  Buy one season of any TV show I always wanted to watch but never did -- Might pick something up when I'm out shopping Monday
3.  Visit Colonial Williamsburg -- I think I'll wait until September for this one
4.  Visit at least one location thought to be haunted -- Not unless my place of employment is haunted
5.  Do not murder anyone -- Not yet, but those people sure do push my buttons.....

I have only one goal right now. 

1. Move.  Hoping to get into a place that's less expensive so the SO can go back to school.  After that happens, I'll add to the list as we go along.

1. Move - In progress.  Currently driving around town looking at various places trying to find something that doesn't totally suck.  And accepts a cat.  Roll Eyes

3. I'll try to give progress updates for the group every week or two.

And here it is!

Number of participants: 8
Total # of goals: 108
Total # goals completed: 6
% of goals completed: 5.56%

That's really not a bad start, considering we're only a week into the season.

And accepts a cat.

I feel your pain.  I had the 'pleasure' of hunting for a new place last winter with three cats and one senior citizen in tow. We lucked out and found a great condo owned by cat lovers who, after having several PITA renters in a row, were happy to lease to people whose worst flaw as renters is owning three cats.

I'm back for this season! I realized last season that I missed having somewhere to check in with how I'm doing. Smiley

I know I'm a bit late, but better that than never. Grin

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; 400 to my credit card; 100 to my dad.
2. Lose 20 pounds: goal 272.
3. Learning: finish my TEFL course; read 6 books from library and renew as needed;
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).

August
1. Debts to be paid: 200 to credit card; 400 to dad.
2. Personal joy: send off registration and money for Pirates and Fairies; plan for new tattoo.

3. Don't audition for any plays.
4. Look into joining a club other than Satyr players, Immersion, or Anthropology.
5. Lose 5 pounds: goal 247.

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.)
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.
4. Keep up with the healthy lifestyle I've been doing.

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) -- mom and I have decided on building three small shacks for me, all under 100 square feet, because it's much cheaper than a yurt and much roomier than a trailer. Also, I get to design and build them myself. Cheesy ; 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?)

Also going to make goal #3 in September be part of #1, and put in a new one for September.

September
1. School: get off on the right foot this semester; don't become bogged down with social life; don't audition for any plays.
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.

4. Look into joining a club other than Satyr players, Immersion, or Anthropology.
