I really hope next season sucks less.

Reality

2. Get a job as a transcriptionist.

Books
1. Finish Magic Study in March.
2. Read at least 1 fiction book in April.
3. Read at least 1 fiction book in May. - I reread a couple books from my childhood, so together I'll consider it a success.
4. Read at least 1 fiction book in June. - Success! Read the 10th Kingdom which was neither particularly good or bad.

Crafty-Creative-y Stuff
1. Order more white nymo and both bead sample cards.
2. Finish 2 beaded pieces by end of April.
3. Photograph pots for Etsy by end of April.
4. Start writing again. Anything. - I'm trying.

Travel

Path
1. Figure out design for bracelet/pendant/whatever the hell kind of jewelry it will work as and make it. - I think I may have come up with a workable solution, but we'll see.
2. Experiment with ritual styles until something clicks. - A success, surprisingly!
3. Read at least one relevant book by end of April.

Health
1. Go outside more. - I'm trying.
2. Eat more veggies. - I am making moderate headway, here.
3. Don't procrastinate getting in with the doc if new meds don't seem to be helping. - I'm calling this one a success- I've been very good about monitoring my meds and staying in touch with the doctor regularly.

1. Don't get fired before it is over.
2. Read. The. Tarot. Cards. Regularly.
3. Say things out loud instead of expecting everyone to know what I'm thinking.
4. Take Sweet Pea to the vet for a healthy, old dog visit. (That's an entire paycheck right there.  Sad)
5. Don't go to bed with dishes in the sink.

So. I did two of 'em. And the most important (not being fired) was the one that was REALLY REALLY on my mind. So. And that's that. No more of these. I just can't... you know... finish 'em.

I feel your pain. I have a really hard time at making realistic goal lists, particularly when my health can vary so much from day to day. At least you accomplished the most important thing!

My final personal update of the season.  The results weren't as bad as I'd expected, but still could have been a lot better!

Grown Up Reality:
1. Reduce debt by 7%. - Done and exceeded the goal by an additional 5%!
2. File sales & income taxes. - Done!
3. Finish parring down & organizing HMD products.  - WIP. Still not finished with the last crate.  
4. Do a thorough spring cleaning. - Done!

Creative Projects/Fun Stuff:
1. Begin revision of Odinsdatter (carried over from last season). - Did not even crack it open.
2. Post regularly to all blogs. - Enough progress that I'll call it done!
3. Complete at least 5 creative projects. - Done.
4. Read at least three books. - Done.
5. Whip garden into shape. -Done! 
6. Spring road-trip to visit friends. - Cancelled!

Health/Wellness
1. Plan and complete a hiking trip. - Failed, unless the storms stop long enough today for me to get out.
2. Walk at least 100 miles. - Done!
3. Achieve current weight goal. - Failed, but I'm not at all upset about this.  I've taken up vigorous walking and jogging again.  I haven't dropped much weight, but there is decidedly less me than three months ago (at least according to the tape measure!).

Spirituality
1. Continue converting spirituality-related notebooks/journals into organized blog posts. - Calling this done for this season.  Will continue to work on it next season!

I'll wait until the season is done to post a final stats update for the group.  In the meantime, if you're ready to start pondering it, the thread for next season is here: Life's To Do List - 2011 Season 3

Oh, crap.  The solstice is, like, Wednesday, isn't it?

My only goal was to come up with 3-5 goals for next season.  I have one well-defined one and one very vague one.  Sigh.

To be fair, the very vague one is "something to do with stress management", which might have something to do with my lack of success this season.

I dont know if I should even bother with next season. 

I can understand that.  I tend to get frustrated with myself when I don't make a lot of progress. 

I actually thought about dropping out and just doing stats only for next season.  Then I started thinking about everything that I want to accomplish this summer... and had a mental list as long as my arm.  *sigh* Even if I don't post the list, I'm still going to have one.  Might as well post it and hold myself accountable.
