Well, I pretty much abandon my goals this season.   Embarrassed  Maybe I can do better next season.

1.  Donate to riding stable---Done!
2.  Donate to TC---Done!   (I hope)
3.  Save $20 from each paycheck---kind of forgot, but did save my income tax refund, so...
4.  Continue with spiritual pathworking  Tongue
5.  Exercise regularly---Never got back into it after my fall.   Sad  Maybe it will be easier now that it's warming up outside.
6.  Drink enough water and take a multivitamin each day---forgot this one too
7.  Be more social/network/meet new people---Complete!  Most of the new people I've met are into tech, which I don't understand, or politics, which I'm generally uninterested in, but at least I haven't been a hermit!

43% Complete.  Better luck next time.

I haven't been updating because I had nothing to update. This hasn't been a terribly productive season... But this week I actually got stuff (other than coursework...) done! Cheesy

Final update! This was a bit of a belly flop season, but hey...

1)   Figure out my future. Applications sent and now I wait...
2)   Exercise! Counting this as half done. I've had an hour and a half of yoga every week, I've been running every second morning since it got warm enough to do so, and my afternoons for the last while have been spent hiking around the woods with a bucket of sap on my head. Not as much as I was hoping, but I'm not in too bad a shape.
3)   Sort out my finances... Well, they're sorted. I've made projections for my earnings and expenditures over the next few years and lets just say that there is a lot of red *groans*. Oh well, at least I know where I stand.
4)   Read a non-class-related book. Got a couple done. One real book, one audio book, and one web book. Yay me!
5)   Keep up with my friends. Things are tense around here as we are all in snappy moods due to hormones/too much work/too many applications. Still, no one has killed anyone yet. I consider this a success.
6)   Celebrate the seasons and do at least one tarot reading per week. Celebrate seasons? Check. Tarot readings? ... So yeah, half done.
7)   Sleep! I'm in an east facing room again now which doesn't have a damned street light outside the window so my body clock is happy!
Cool   Get to 18,000 words on my story. Epic fail. I didn't write so much as a word.
9)   Do at least one big crafting project for myself. Also an epic fail. Maybe I'll get those pants done next break.
10) Go to temple at least every second week. Done! I've been going about 2 out every 3 weeks. I'm considering taking refuge (kinda like converting 'cept you can't "convert" to Buddhism). I'm rather excited.

Done: 6 whole goals and 2 halves.
Percent Done: 70%

2.  Re-reduce weight to 180 and keep it there throughout the season.--Done.

Goals:  7

The Final Update:

Academic Goals

1. Do well for the first half of the semester. -- I got a B in my baking class and I seem to be doing fine in my other two classes.
2. Try not to let my teachers get to me as much. -- I didn't have the desire to kill the harpy this week.  That's a good thing.

Creative Goals
1. Work on first ms once a week. -- I just realized that the point of this goal was to finish the current draft.  Since I did, there's no point in leaving this up here. Smiley
2. Get started on two of my other projects -- Done.
3. Work on low-priority ms's a little bit every once in a while. -- What the hell, I'm calling this one done Cool

Health Goals
1. Try to cut back on the soda -- I'm going to call this failed.  Spring Break at my parents really screwed me up on this.
2. Get back to walking/biking -- I have made it a habit to walk to and from school on Mondays and sometimes Wednesdays.  Sometimes, I take a detour and walk through a historic neighborhood.  I already know that this is a goal that would carry over to spring for maintenance, but since I'm in the habit of doing this, I think I can safely cross this one out. Smiley

Other Goals
1. Try to find a job-- Failed.
2. Read and finish a book not related to my classes --Done
3. Try not to murder anyone -- The bitch is still alive.  I'd call this one done Cool

Total Goals: 10
Accomplished Goals: 8 (that's 80%)
Failed Goals: 2

1. Clean my room. Its CLEAN!!!  Shocked But I finished it today. Should I put this on the new list or old list? Cause seriously I've put up "Clean room" on every one of TC's To Do lists and it never got done until today.  Embarrassed My mother I think almost crapped herself when she saw it!!  Cheesy
2. Get courage to get written permission from parent to take KO's beginner's course. COMPLETE!
2a. addendum: If mother says yes, stick to the practice. If no.. well, crap. (She never got back to me on this, so consider it deleted)
3. Do more tarot. Failed.
4. Lose weight Erm. I didn't lose or gain weight. So um. Null?  Cheesy
5. Beginning planning to live on a lessened income by putting away money, donating to charity, etc. Complete! Sorta? I've been putting away money steadily and not touching it.
6. Do something about that insomnia. I'm getting better at going to bed. So completed?

Maybe I should make my final update. Just for continuity's sake. Cheesy Won't affect the final count, as they're both fails.

Career! Which is not to say money, because I am an artist.

1. Finish and publish Bellica by February.
2. Finish Bellica. -Fail.
3. Don't mess up with stage-managing Vagina Monologues (ie, get a good recommendation and have something worth putting on my resume).

1. A straight-A semester.
2. Get my books before classes start.

1. Work on getting rid of the Buddha Belly.
2. Get my next two tattoos in January.
3. Go to the school gym regularly.
4. Get rid of stuff/stop being such a packrat. (Following that, become more tidy. Hard to do with this much stuff.)
5. Get a job. Make money.
6. See a psychologist.
7. Go to the dental clinic.
8. Get car fixed and re-insured stuff sorted out.
9. Read more books; donate ones I don't wish to keep to Peace Poem Walkers.
10. Get snow clothing.

Staving off Depression (fun stuff!)
1. Spend more time with friends (so long as homework/etc is done).
2. Watch season two of Battlestar Galactica.

3. Watch through every movie I haven't seen in my DVD library.
4. Make friends watch every movie they haven't seen.
5. Go to Stephie's birthday party.
6. Complete Final Fantasy VII. -Fail.
7. Finish FFX (again) and then FFX-2.

14.5 successes total, 7.5 fails / 22 goals (four removed).


Read Bellica here!
