Now that we’re halfway through the month of December (crazy!), it’s time to check in on how I’m doing with my December Goals!
- Have more productive weekends. It depends on how you define “productive.” I’ve been doing a lot of relaxing, which is really good, and I’ve been making some stuff for my Etsy shop. But I’ve also felt really lazy and unproductive, so I’m not really sure if I’m doing so well on this one.
Make a plan for an Etsy shop. Getting really close! I’ve got a few items made, some photos have been taken, and I’m really excited about how it’s all coming together.
Do at least one link-up.Done! My December Goals post was part of the #friendswithgoals link up with Mitchael Journey, and this check-in post is, too!
Watch less television. Well, I watched all of season four of Parks and Rec in three days. I also worked 8 hours each of those days. Needless to say, I haven’t been doing so well on this goal.
Continue to read more. Also a fail. I tried listening to the audiobook, but it’s such a dense story that I really need to read it rather than listen to it. So far I’ve only got the prologue under my belt. Whoops.
Design and order holiday cards.Done! I’m getting photos printed today that we’ll mail out with the cards, but the cards and envelopes are all set. They’re Game of Thrones themed, which is awesome.
7. Use Rosetta Stone once per week. Haven’t used it once yet.
- Don’t spend money outside of gifts, groceries, rent, etc. I’ve spent quite a bit of money on supplies for my Etsy shop, and I ended up buying a really nice messenger bag and laptop cases from Invisible Children (they were on my fair-trade holiday gift list). So I haven’t been doing so well with this one, but I’ve still got half the month and not much else I need / want to buy.
Not bad for being halfway through the month! I’m not doing so hot on some of them (here’s looking at you, Parks and Rec), but I’ve still got two weeks left to get my act together. Plus I’m in the last season of Parks and Rec, so I won’t have that to distract me for much longer.
