Not deleting that last message since technically it was a greeting-ish thing.
Also, just to let you know it was apparently a greeting-ish thing.

What were last week's goals?
  • Greater focus on deep cleaning
  • Previous goals yet to complete:
  • Finances
  • adult-responsibility communications

How did they go
  • Hahahah...Nope. Nope Nope. Not going there. (Try again another time.)
  • Previous goals
  • Writing - Finished writing next chapter. I have maybe one more final-glance edit before done.
  • Finances - Half-way re-organizing a system. Half-way done with last month's records. Half-done with communications. Just everything halved.
  • Responsible-communications - Playing phone tag, apparently. Prepared paperwork for another. Completed one [which was due today]. Add two more (for "transitioning" questioning), plus more personal communications.

Goals for this week:
  • End phone-tag.
  • Finish final edits and update.
  • At least one personal communication.
  • Yard-work (if weather permits)
  • B-day communications.
  • At least 3 journal entries.

Productivity Level: 1 - mental state.

Could anything be done be more efficient/productive?
Move max bed time 1 hour earlier. Go to bed on time (not max-bed-time). Find a schedule.

How would you rate your well-being? (Ha!) 2
My emotional well-being is all over the place at the moment. I'm seeking help, and trying to convince additional professional help that I need to be seen.

Anything I can do to make it better
Journal. Go-to bed at earliest bed-time. Physical activity....just things that I used to do that had proven to improve my mental and emotional states altogether that I for some reason stopped.

Any additional comments
You may start your week on any day you wish. Thank you for the feedback, I will take your advice.

What were last week's goals?

7 more hours of lab work
Help person from parent's church for a day.
Tiny chores. (At least 2-3 of these.)
Finish up laundry, etc.
Additional floor cleaning / vacuuming.
About 18 hours of additional paying work.
Transcribe old audio episodes to figure out where I'm actually at.
Plan where to go from there on audio project.
Audio editing (if I use old material), possibly recording.

On Hold:
Big cleaning project
Finish dry shampoo.

How did they go?

Nope, Yup, Nope, Half, Nope, Nope, Nope, Nope, EXTRA nope.
I may not even get to use the old material I'd planned at all due to some info I got on Friday that almost actually screwed with my sense of knowing my own past. It was a bad day. I barely managed to salvage a cohesive self-narrative. I think I've got a working patch for the new data though, so to speak.

What are your goals for this week?


2 week old lab work I'm mad at myself about.
Tiny tasks / small-to-medium chores (About THIRTY of these.)
Old laundry, new Ironing - will mostly happen Thurs / Friday when home alone.
Vacuuming, somehow.
Transcribe 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.
As many hours of additional paying work as I can do, really.

On Hold:
Big cleaning project
Finish dry shampoo.

How productive was last week? (1-7)

5 - Wound up doing work for the Church Lady twice, got help with gas money the second time in exchange.

Could anything be done be more productive/efficient?

Other than stuff I'll mention in the wellness discussion, uh... Not sure. There's probably something I could have done to wrest control of my mental health, but yeah, between my mental health running away twice over and my physical health going through the floor, that... mostly accounts for it honestly.

How would you rate your wellbeing? (1-7)


Right now it's about a 4.5, but for most of the week it was a 2 or even a 1. My osteoarthritis in my feet even started hurting the main calf bones of my right leg a little for a day there, and I honestly spent most of Saturday barely able to get out of bed. Wednesday and Thursday - and to be honest, Friday too, but for vastly different reasons - were just a sea of bad mental health. As a result, my To-Do list climbed from a low of 37 on Wednesday morning to a high of 82 by Sunday afternoon. I've since started getting it back under control (it's at 67 right now), but it's gonna be yet another mountain to climb.

Any additional comments?

Uh... is this all going Wednesday to Wednesday now? I noticed dates like the 13th and 20th... I just can't work like that. Because while I don't mind if the challenges are done on Wednesday, there's no way in heck I'm going to schedule myself that way. I'm doing this as a Monday start. after already moving from a Sunday start. A Wednesday start is too frelling confusing.

What were last week's goals?
How did they go?
This is my first Challenge :D

What are your goals for this week?
1. Exercise daily (I mean just a super basic 5-10 min workout, but it's more about getting into the habit, than actually gaining something)
2. Meditate daily (again, super short, 5-10 mins. My mind will probably be a mess, but it's about getting into the habit)
3. This one's a bit of a one time thing. Some guy in my uni hosts group meditations in his apartment weekly. About 2-3 people come. I'd very much like to go (it's Monday evening), but my anxiety is sooo bad ;-; I already feel terrified about it. But I'll do my best to go there. I might even make some friends, as I have none :/
4. Been taking some music making course online. Pretty close to finishing it, but been slacking off. Should (and would like to) finish it this week.
5. Try out the laundry room in my dorms. Not because I need, but because the thought terrifies me and I gotta push myself haha....

How productive was last week? (Scale: 1-7. 1 = minimal/not-at-all; 7 = maximum/Master Productivity)
Can't really remember tbh. Will try to keep track for next week :)

Could anything be done be more productive/efficient?
Hmmm idk.... I'm least productive on the weekends, when I'm most depressed... Not much I can do about that though....

How would you rate your wellbeing? (Scale: 1-7. 1 = lowest point, 7=highest point)
I think 4. Not good, but also not bad. Which is actually pretty good for me. My mood is usually pretty low.

What would have made it better?
If I knew that, I'd probably do something about it

Any additional comments?
Just that I'm looking forward to get better at life, along with you guys :)

What were last week's goals?

3 more hours of lab work tonight or tomorrow morning.
Finish dry shampoo.
Tiny chores.
25 more hours of paying work, minimum 19.
Ironing MUST be done, some more laundry should be.
Sewing and knitting and whatnot. (THE MINIMUM GOT 100% DONE)
Additional floor cleaning / vacuuming.
Tried to schedule personal project audio editing.

On Hold:
Big cleaning project

How did they go?

Lab stuff: Last week's got done. This weeks? I started on it, my computer crashed, all my progress deleted itself, and I got discouraged and didn't touch it again and now it's going to be super late because something came up tomorrow and it probably won't happen.
Dry shampoo: Stalled because the person might not be able to pay me for awhile and I don't want to use the ingredents - even the oat flour I carefully prepared - for that when they could be used for other things if said individual completely backs out.
Tiny Chores: ALMOST done. Like, 75%-80% done. Really, there's only three of these that didn't get done. 2 1/2 really...
The other paying work DID get done, but I don't know if it will transfer to my bank in time, and there's always more of it.
IRONING GOT DONE. The laundry also got mostly done. They're the same checklist on my todos though, so there's still a lot of push to finish the last little bit so I can get all the rewards and XP that will come with finishing it. It will be the longest checklist I have ever checked off - 185 items long.
The minimum sewing got done... didn't go beyond that yet.
Vacuuming did not get done.
Nothing related to the audio editing stuff got done. Ugh.

What are your goals for this week?

7 more hours of lab work - Delayed til Tuesday / Tomorrow.
Help person from parent's church for a day. (Obligation - already done today/Monday.)
Tiny chores. (At least 2-3 of these.)
Finish up laundry, etc.
Additional floor cleaning / vacuuming.
About 18 hours of additional paying work.
Transcribe old audio episodes to figure out where I'm actually at.
Plan where to go from there on audio project.
Audio editing (if I use old material), possibly recording.

On Hold:
Big cleaning project
Finish dry shampoo.

5. In spite of my schedule going out the window, I managed to make more of my goals than usual, even when I worried I was about to physically break.

Could anything be done be more productive/efficient?


Not unless someone's invented a pill to remove the need for sleep, or a magic wand to wave that would reduce my bad mental health symptoms to nill?
I think it will be better when I dig out a little more and know which end is up and reintroduce the schedule. ... I hope it will be, anyway.

How would you rate your wellbeing? (1-7)

4. On the bright side, I CAN BREATHE, which I couldn't earlier in the week.
On the down side, my arthritis is... bad.

What would have made it better?


IDK. Yoga? A foot soak in salt? lol

Any additional comments?


Nah.
