As another season turns, it's time to start a whole new round of to-do lists.   

How it works:
1. Post your list of goals to be accomplished during the Autumn (Spring for those of you south of the equator).  Please either number your list or post a running total of the number of goals made and completed.
2. After the equinox, periodically post updates and progress reports on this thread. 
3. I'll try to give progress updates for the group every week or two.
4. The fun ends on the last day of the season, when we'll start a new thread and whole new lists.
5. Most important: Have fun!

Remember, this to-do list doesn't officially start until September 22nd, but feel free to begin posting your lists now.

Good Luck!

2. Remember to pay off student loans.
3. Get caught up on my other bills.

Writing and Other Creativity
1. Write 15K in NaNoWriMo.
2. Write a poem or short story.
3. Try to work on the ongoing WIP every once in a while.
4. Draw/create more (non-literary) art.
5. Get through one "Learn to Play Guitar" DVDs every two weeks.
6. Try out a new recipe every two weeks.
7. Update blogs on a semi-regular basis.

Religion
1. Continue actively figuring out what exactly I believe.
2. Do more meditations, rituals, and divination.
3. Do something on Samhain other than handing out candy and watching horror movies.

Health--Mental and Physical
1. Try to read three books for the sheer pleasure of reading.
2. Buy a series that I always wanted to get into on DVD and watch it.
3. Visit Colonial Williamsburg
4. Visit a place thought to be haunted.
5. Go walking more
6. Cut back on the sodas
7. Don't murder anyone (manslaughter and maiming okay)

Isn't that redundant?  Smiley IIRC, Williamsburg has more than a few reports of hauntings.

They are separate goals because I may go to another supposedly haunted location (like Yorktown or maybe even Crawford Road or The Monitor's Turret*) before going to Williamsburg.  Plus having two goals gives me a nice "kill two birds with one stone" situation.

4.  Create a lesson plan and execute properly
5.  Gather all materials necessary

Health:
1.  Walk more/Become more active in every day life

I'm not looking to collect any evidence.  I just really want to go there so I can post something to my paranormal blog.

I always make my goal lists divisible by ten so I don't have to think that hard when recording the percentage.

As another season turns, it's time to start a whole new round of to-do lists.   

I'm putting more emphasis on having fun and doing things I enjoy this season, in hopes of balancing out the nightmares from last season.

Finances, Work, and Business:
1. Reduce debt by 5%.
2. Reach minimum sales goal for this quarter.
3. Vend at one live show/festival.

Creative and Hobby Stuff:
1. Prep garden for winter.
2. Post to personal blog at least twice per week; all others weekly.
3. Complete at least 10 creative projects.
4. Participate in NaNoWriMo.
 
Health and Well-Being:
1. Lose weight needed to drop BMI below 30 (13.5 pounds).
2. Walk 500 miles over the course of the season.

Spiritual Matters:
1. Update altar for fall.
2. Add a dozen entries to personal herbal site.
3. Post three new Path Forging entries.
4. Do some kind of Samhain ritual.
5. Do promised readings for friends.

Play Time and Social Things:
1. Take a stay-cation in October while friends are visiting from out of town.
2. Attend at least one write-in with the local NaNo group.
3. Plan holiday family get-together. Get through it without drama. Mentally recover.
4. Get holiday shopping done by Thanksgiving.
5. Read at least 3 books for pleasure.
6. Have at least 3 'movie nights' at home.
7. Take a mini-break Thanksgiving.
8. Call BFFs every week, without fail.
9. Explore and photograph one 'new' cemetery.
10. Have a girls' night out.
11. Take a 'leaf-look' drive on the BRP.

I think I'm going to stop at 25 goals and keep the math simple.

Since I'm drooling over one of your necklaces right now, I may be able to help with this goal.
