Last week's goals? - How they went.

  • Contact friend: phone and different method. - Contacted two by phone. Have beginning of different method, but not finished.
  • pick-up and organize laundry - Not the ones I intended, nor as much.

    • Not even touched
      • Complete, print, and send learning materials
      • Vaccum

    IF ABLE:
    • Try new writing program. Write regardless. - Did not try program, but I did write a bit (though not on story I intended, at least I wrote.)
    • garden - Conditions not allow
    • Blanket row; swatch - Row not done; complete two half-swatches.

What were last week's goals: - How did they go?
  • Cook - Done. Made extra cocoa mix for a friend; crock-pot meal I tried is a keeper, brownies were a little sticky (despite oiling the pan) but good.
  • Continue blanket - I have a little less than one row left (approx. 500-ish more hdc stitches) before it it time to make swatches to determine the border/finishing.
  • Friends: Different method. - Not done.
  • Start writing again. - Mainly thought about starting, but I did get a small list of important details written down.
  • Practice Tai-chi - Not done unless you count dirga breathing practice.
  • Light bulbs and cleaning room. - Light bulbs are changed. I managed to keep my room at the same level of messiness, but it is not clean.

Goals for this week:
  • Clean off desk.
  • Finances
  • Contact friend: phone and different method.
  • Put up and organize laundry.
  • Transcribe notes.
  • Complete, print, and send crochet-learning materials.
  • Vacuum
    Possible if able
    • Try new writing program. Write regardless.
    • Garden
    • Finish final blanket row. Start making first swatch.

    Productivity Level: I don't know; my days are beginning to blur and jumble again.
    Improvement?
    Same things I've been saying. Respect sleep cycle, try pomodoro techniques, schedule ; set daily priorities.

    Wellness rating: 4

    I'm a little late in reporting again.

    Last Week's goals:
    • Transcribe notes
    • Contact friends
    • Finances
    • Blanket to dark blue

    How'd they go?
    • A little, but not completed.
    • Wonderful. The most social I have been in a while. Saw a friend in person, had multiple phone calls, and was able to catch up with another. Still have some more to contact, though.
    • Not even looked at.
    • I manages to get one row to dark blue before July 29. Yay.

    Goals for this week:
    • COOK - Try new crock-pot recipe, Make brownies, make cocoa Aloo Palak << My house-mate got to this one before I could.
    • Continue Blanket
    • Friends- one by different method.
    • Start writing again. Or at least start editing.
    • Practice Tai-Chi
    • Light bulbs, and cleaning room.

    Productivity Level: 3 I still procrastinated a lot.
    Anything that can be done.
    Shut down computer at night. Stop reading stories before work is done. Use kitchen timer I bought to practice pomodoro technique. (Possibly look more into UFYH. While the "F" does make me a little uncomfortable, I can filter it. Besides, maybe it'll motivate me to keep my space clean. Thank you for the suggestion Juniper.

    Health Rating: Improvements? It's been too long to give this information. I may have a good memory, but remembering about health is not part of it. [/list]

    What were last week's goals?

    Another lab (already done the second one).
    The dry shampoo
    At least 5 more small cleaning projects
    Install the cash app on my phone
    Really deal with the floor. Vacuum, sweep, etc.
    Finish transcribing old audio episodes to figure out where I'm actually at.
    Plan where to go from there on audio project.
    See if there's anything at all I can salvage from unpublished stuff I've already done before recording more.
    Additional paying work.
    Friend's additional project/assignment.
    Get down to 26 to-dos if I can.

    How did they go?


    No
    No
    No
    N/A now
    No
    No
    No
    No
    Somewhat
    No
    HA no. I got as high as 71 to-dos.

    What are your goals for this week?


    Basically the same list, minus the cash app thing.

    How productive was last week? (Scale: 1-7. 1 = minimal/not-at-all; 7 = maximum/Master Productivity)

    Going with the month so far and not just this past week?
    ... a 1. At least for my todo list. The dailies were even messed up most of the month. It felt like I barely managed to take care of my cat, let alone anything else.

    Could anything be done be more productive/efficient?

    Already doing so. Had to get tough with myself and set up an additional accountability system with the very folks who were distracting me. XD

    Forget just having Habitica consequences - knowing these folks I expect probably a mortifying public prank if I don't do enough this week. There's a good reason to have a fire lit under you! 0.0;

    How would you rate your wellbeing? (Scale: 1-7. 1 = lowest point, 7=highest point)


    Oh, that's at a solid 6. My arthritis still sucks, and I'm stressed as heck but... Oh wow, a lot has changed the last few weeks.

    What would have made it better?


    If the situation I've found myself in didn't come with so much stress?
    But honestly that's fine. I'm fine. This is fine. >.>

    Any additional comments?


    What HASN'T changed for me since July 3rd? ... my grad school plans, and maybe my hope to own a Tiny House someday or something. But which state I'm looking at living in next, who my nearby friends will be, who my closest circle of friends are (that's shifted more than outright changed, really, since a few friends are common to both groups)... even the person I was crushing on for 6 months rejected me, which lead to two people I'm friends with basically fighting over me, which was... a weird experience that didn't even really happen when I was younger. o.o; What I'll probably do for work in the meantime has somewhat changed... just... everything's changed. But in a way that feels like adventure, even if a stressful one that could go badly just as easily as it could go well. Even parts of my religious / spiritual past that I've grown distant from are sort of getting reintegrated, in their own, new, different-but-still-the-same way, plus I've also made a slight academic research breakthough, too. (NOT related to the "lab work.")

    Put it this way, my current desktop background shows a dusty road going through scrub lands, with the quote: "Great Things Never Came From Comfort Zones."

    That about sums it up.

    I'm riding an emotional high right now from life circumstance reasons. A lot of dead or at least sluggish things fell away to make room for risks I'm scared to take, but probably will. I've spent years doing what should have only taken me six months. Now, at last, I'm looking at doing in a matter of months what I wouldn't have dreamed of accomplishing for years. Might even travel to a bunch of states I've never been to - my current number is 19, but if I earn enough between now and when I might travel, I could get as high as 26 if I recall. (And "enough" isn't as much as one might think, I'm pretty shoestring with these things...)

    Frelling FINALLY, though.
    I'm scared, but excited.


    Also - @OneWhoDreamz - depending on how you feel about swearing, if cleaning is an issue, may I recommend the website / blog UFYH? Their methods worked pretty well to motivated me. Unfortunately the F stands for exactly what one might guess it does, though... But other than that, it's a down to earth method that's adaptable to all sorts of personal capacities for cleaning. So... thought I'd recommend it. (Unless I did already, which I probably did, so WHOOPS.)

    What were last week's goals?
    • Complete giant coloring page
    • **Health** Practice exersise, tai chi and yoga. Make phone calls one call left.
    • Contact two friends by phone. At least try to contact 1-2 friends by different means.
    • Clean room to where manageable
    • **Finances** - All that it entails.
    • **Blanket** At least one row of medium blue if yarn will allow. Shopping for yarn; if done before week's end, blanket to dark blue one row.

    How'd they go?
    • Completed the same week as assigned before I had posted goals for last week
    • Yes, yes, and yes. Made the call this week.
    • Contacted one friend. Did not contact any others last week.
    • It is cleaner than it has been, but most of the items have simply been moved instead of put up.
    • Not even touched.
    • Competed one row to medium blue. Did the shopping; however the dark blue goal "overestimating" my wrist strength. I took care and did not do more.

    Goals for this week?l
    • Webinar - completed today
    • Transcribe notes
    • Contact friend- Wed. Contact another friend by phone. Contact at least one friend by other means. Possibly contact another.
    • **Finances** - Payments and records, organization next week.
    • Blanket to dark-blue

    Productivity level 3- took three days to finish coloring instead of finances.[/b]
    Anything that can be done to be more efficient?
    Focus more on the unfavorable tasks before the more favorable tasks. Reorganize priorities. Possibly re-evaluate my Habitica.

    Wellbeing rating: 4
    I'm getting better and making progress emotionally.

    Anything to make it better
    Keep on with practices that I know are healthy.

    Any additional comments? - None.
