Whoops! Here's last weeks' (The week ending the 24th). I'll clear it off the template page (D'oh) -
What were last week's goals?
How did they go?

I needed to put in roughly 32-37 hours of transcription work, and didn't. Not even close.

Needed to do some ironing for my parents... my step-dad threw in this one particularly difficult shirt and I wound up creasing it wrong and kind of crying over it in frustration.

Needed to do some vacuuming... Technically that's a twice a week daily, but it's often really red.

Finally got seen at the dentist on Thursday, so that accomplished something, I guess. I spent about 15 hours of my week waiting to be triaged into a sliding scale dental clinic. I'm also really proud of myself for knocking out a yoga session in public during all that. (I used the "Street Yoga" session from Yoga with Adrien's channel on YouTube.)

I did also knock out about 25 smaller to-do's during the week.

What are your goals for the next week?

For next week, since my dental bills for last week were less than I had anticipated, I get some relief to take care of the household tasks like vacuuming and ironing, so I will probably start there while I can mentally allow myself to take care of that stuff. I'll also take the time to really appraise the rest of the chaos that is my to-do list... and then dive back into earning money.

The main "rest of my to-do list" I need to organize falls mainly into two categories -

Episodes of what (only extremely loosely) quaifies as a podcast that I run.
16 of my 47 to-dos are currently tied up in this, and some of those represent series on different topics, not individual episodes.
(No one I know in the podcast business considers me a podcaster, but I mark it that way in my head because the multimedia project I run now began as an idea for a podcast before it changed, and is tagged on my habitica todo list with a podcast tag, even if it isn't one??? So for anonymity's sake I'll call it a podcast here.)

Writing projects.
(Mostly long term and related to my academic studies for my Master's degree, even when I'm not actively earning credits or taking classes.)

How productive was your last week (1-7, 7 being the highest)

My last week was productive at about a 4. I went from 72 or so to-dos to around 47 or so to-dos, so that's nothing to sneeze at.

What would have made it better?

It would have been better if I'd actually slept at the times I meant to instead of allowing myself to stay awake due to distractions, friends calling, etc. My sleep schedule has been kind of odd due to needing to be up before my parents to take care of some chores for them. The alternative is going to bed long after them. Lately I've been going to bed... sometimes as early as 8PM. Trying to push it differently so that I can maybe go back to not needing an alarm most days (since I set my own hours for the paying work, it's only needing to be up before then that forces my current schedule).

How you you rate your well-being?(1-7)

My well being is probably at about a 3. I'm apparently healthier than I thought, insofar as my dental infection doesn't appear to be quite as bad as I suspected. Nonetheless, I've been having neck / shoulder / jaw pain... I think that last bit is from wisdom teeth finally coming in, which is wildly late given my age.

What would make it better?

My eating habits would be better if I actually had control of what food is available to me, but I don't, at least not to a decent extent. That's a complicated post in and of itself.  That, and not having pain / issues getting to sleep probably would have helped a lot.

In my life, I find I perform better when I have a boss, but when I have to direct myself I struggle. If you have this problem, this might be the site for you! We seek to combine life coaching with the historical structure of feudalism.

Some basic guild mechanics. Leaders will hold weekly group chats and monthly one on ones. Group size is five, your life coach will be in their own group of 5, and so on. The rankings are as follows (based somewhat on the English peerage system):

Peasant (lurker who hasn't introduced themselves)

Knight (basic fighter against the travails of life)

Baron (runs a group of 5 knights)

Earl (Runs 5 barons)




You will be promoted based on how much effort you put in and how helpful you are to your fellows, as well as showing a potential for leadership.

Things were thrown off by my taking a trip to visit my pregnant gf. It really helped restore me emotionally as it's been a while since we've seen each other, but it threw off my routines while I was preparing and staying in a hotel.
