Hello, hello! Apologies for being ultra late to the party this month. How we’re already 12 days into July, I’ve no idea. Time has clearly gotten well and truly away from me. Let’s get started shall we?
June Goals: Recap
June ended up being a surprisingly busy month for me which I really hadn’t seen coming. I did manage to blog way more than usual, but alas not quite the 2 posts per week I’d aimed for. Still, I’ve done more than I usually manage so I’m taking away the positives and taking the fails constructively. Some on the other hand, like some of my purge has been slower to kick off, but I did get there in the end. I’ve prepared a list of items to clear out, sell or donate and some have even gone already. I even managed to hit my writing goals. So some successes and some failures, but all around still a positive learning experience.
750 Words June Monthly Challenge. (March completed previously.) SUCCESS!
Write at least 5k that doesn’t involve blogging or journaling. SUCCESS!
Catch up with TV finales I missed whilst on holiday. SUCCESS!
} Walk an average of 10k steps a day, 5/7. FAIL! So I didn’t manage that 10K 5/7, but I did manage 7K. I also sadly don’t have a wristband yet, so track this using my phone. I don’t always pick up my phone. Not an excuse, but I doubt I’ll keep setting goals for this if I can’t track everything.
Kon Mari purge; sort through keepers and the things it’s time to get rid of. SUCCESS! The process has begun and some of my to go pile has already gone.
Celebrate Dad’s & the other half’s birthdays, and Father’s Day. SUCCESS!
} Get back into blogging, both reading and commenting. FAIL! I’m going to be strict with myself here. I did much better with this, but not consistently as I’d have liked so I’m failing myself.
} Blog at least twice a week. FAIL! Though on the up side, I did crank out more posts and prepare more drafts than this, I only managed 6 posts, 2 drafts. Close, but not a win.
Begin blog renovation (backend first). SUCCESS!
} Review the most anticipated 2016 movies that I’ve seen so far. FAIL! I reviewed some, they’re written up as drafts, but sadly I haven’t posted these yet nor have I found the time to write ALL of them up.
} Win Camp NaNoWriMo by writing 25K words.
} Continue clear out of old stuff. Take no prisoners!
} TV: Finish Colony season 1. Josh Holloway y’all! <3
} TV: Finish iZombie season 2.
} TV: Start Ally McBeal rewatch. I haven’t watched this since I was in high school!
I’m going to start adding some gaming goals each month. Pardon the only 2 I’ve included this month since they’re based on NOT doing something. These somethings are big items, ones that will derail my other goals if I cave in. I cannot cave in! *resolve face*
} Do not cave in and buy Overwatch! YET!!
} Do not be tempted to try and speed through Heart of Thorns storyline in Guild Wars 2 in preparation for living story season 3 kicking off at the end of July! It can wait until August!!
} Write at least 4 new posts in July. (Include Summer Hiatus TV, Funko Pop Haul and Funko Pop Swap post.)
} Improve upon reading and commenting on blogs, even if it’s just a catchup every weekend.
I’m going for a far more reserved July, mainly because most of my free time will be taken up with Camp NaNoWriMo. I’ve never participated before, but so far I’m having a lot of fun with the others in my cabin. We’ve had a few Write-Ins and Word Wars which have been productive and most importantly, a good laugh. To balance this up, I’m avoiding losing myself to my gaming urges completely, but factoring in some Netflix to enjoy some chill out time too. All work and no play…
