  • To start my Writer's Journal
  • Post at least one new story
  • To work on writing stories for the (three, so far) challenges I've entered 
  • To continue editing and posting Sirrah
  • To post one review a day (or at least one review for every day of the month)
  • Possibly start a review thread (this might help with the above)
  • To work out regularly (at least two or three times a week)
  • To search for and apply to more jobs
  • To actually finish (reading) a book this month :facepalm:

I've been slacking in all areas this month apparently. I did manage to start my Writer's Journal, and even planned what I'm doing for Julno and set up a Writer's Nest there, but unfortunately have not had the time/energy to do much else. June's been a hard month for me, but on the bright side I did apply and find a job! I start mid-July, and I've already got my ducks in a row with my current managers, so they know what's up. I will finally be leaving the part time job I hate, and cutting back hours at my current full-time job to make room for this (hopefully better) new job 🤞. And we'll see where it goes from there.

 

Keeping my goals for July light:

  • to reach my goal for JulNo and hopefully finish a story
  • to be more active around HPFT 
  •  to watch more movies/tv shows

i'm obviously avoiding the fully unpack thing like the plague. i would've loved if i had the time to finish planning out my fic but right now all my free time goes into actually writing it :/ and work destroys me. BUT I FINISHED THE SCHOOL DESIGN TODAY. so that's huge.

new list:

  • start on chapter 4 of TAOBN
  • finish chapter outlines for TAOBN
  • sleep (because i haven't done that in a few days due to work/the school design competition thingie)
