1. I've done 3 per week, which is OK and puts me on track with company expectations. I'd have done 5 this week if stupid fracking T-Mobile would answer their sales support line on Sundays, but that's another rant.

2. In progress.

3. Working on it.

In other news, the "pretty new tarot deck" habit has been laid aside in favor of breaking more important habits. So I'm taking the money that I would have spent on cigarettes and spending it on stuff that's actually useful to me, like tarot decks and my cellphone bill.

1. Averaging out to 3 a week, which is OK. This past week sucked royally.



2. Dropped stats, which unless I can sell my minivan may delay my move back to St Croix, which will be a huge pain in my butt. As in, $3K that I won't have for another month and a half after the anticipated date.

3. I did it!

So here's my result of shame:

6 goals

2 in work - failed
2 not really going that well - failed
