Sunday Summary #03 – Nearly at month’s end…

Somehow it’s already Sunday again. I can’t even remember what I was doing last week but I didn’t end up managing a Sunday Summary post. Now we’re nearly at the end of August and I’m not quite feeling like I’m going to achieve as much as I’d hoped, but on some I’m reasonably close…

Here are the goals I set for myself at the start of August, with this week’s progress in red or green.

  • Spend 15 hours writing (equivalent of 1/2 hour a day – make up missed time) – sitting at 10/15 with only five days remaining (might get a bit higher tonight)… there is so much reading for my uni courses this semester I’m finding it hard to  make time for anything else, but I’ll to about 13 or so by Wednesday, I think.

  • Read and review eight books – I’m only sitting at about 3 books read and 3 reviewed. Damn course work (I’m sensing a pattern with my complaining this week…)

  • Colour 45 pages from my colouring desk calendar – 38.5/45 so far (and I haven’t yet done any today). This might be the one goal I do manage!

  • Exercise 25/31 days – 19/27 days. I think I’m going to make it to 24, but I have skipped one too many to make it to 25. I’m leaving this green anyway.

  • Spend 5-7 hours/week on uni courses – If you include reading Miss Muriel Matters for my biography course, I’ve maybe managed this. Truthfully, though, it was probably about 4.5 hours. I have written my discussion questions to lead the discussion in one course this week, though, so there’s that.

  • Write a meal plan each Sunday and STICK TO IT – I am still finding these tricky. But I made two healthy dishes in bulk this week and they are providing the majority of my meals, so that’s good.

Two weeks ago, I observed that this whole month was likely to have that pulled-in-all-directions feeling. That has been a bit of the case, and I think I will reevaluate for September. For some reason, my assessments are stressing me out more this semester than they did last semester (I did manage to have them spread out a bit better last semester, so that’s probably why) and I haven’t been able to do as much of the stuff I enjoy.

However, I have spent a good portion of this weekend at the Canberra Writer’s Festival. Stay tuned for a post tomorrow with all the details about that.
