I’m really not a fan of how fast time goes by now that I’m older. God, March already… life is so short. I would have assumed I was too young to feel memento mori, but I really feel it bearing down on me. Perhaps it’s all the tragedy in the news – children younger than me, even, losing their lives.
But hey, on a lighter note, I think I’m getting the hang of things. I even managed to tick off a lot of my goals from last month:
Last Month’s Goals:
- Finish writing every single scene of Crossing the Line so that it is at least a coherent enough narrative to get a second set of eyes on it (by the end of March)
- Only spend money on food! Nothing else!
- failed, but I will try again!
- Either sell something I’ve been meaning to sell or donate something I’ve been meaning to donate.
- Success! I donated a bag of clothes to a thrift store~
- Don’t miss another Saturday post on this blog;;;;;
- Success! I don’t know how I managed this one, but I did, and I hope I can keep up the streak!
- Don’t take on any more freelance jobs than the ones you already have, dear god, just don’t do it, these past two weeks were too much.
- Partial Success. I did take on another job, but the job got cancelled, so technically I personally failed, but circumstances saved me.
- Finish at least one homework assignment a week in advance.
So that’s 3.5 out of 6, and technically one of those is an ongoing goal. I had a 70% success rate, which is a passing grade, aha. I think it’s something to be proud of. I’ve mentioned it on my Tumblr before, but you have to celebrate the smaller successes in life, and then every week will have something good in it. I might write a post about my personal visions of happiness some point this month. Hmm… well, in any case, without further ado, my goals for the month of March:
- (leftover) Finish writing every single scene of Crossing the Line so that it is at least a coherent enough narrative to get a second set of eyes on it (by the end of March)
- (leftover) Only spend money on food! Nothing else!
- At Danny’s request and encouragement, start a podcast
