October Goals.

Yes, I completely missed September. Once I had other Blogs written, I had forgotten about my Goals. I decided that I would change the timing of my goals to the beginning of the month. Starting from now…

  • I do want to get a Yoga Schedule going, I really do want to get my legs stronger again.
  • Start actually wrapping up the Christmas presents, so I know what I’m putting with what.
  • At the moment I’m trying to organise things for my shop, I am currently creating things for it.
  • I need to pass my current class. The only thing I have left to do is to make video tape practicals for it. It’ll be interesting to do!

August Goals – Too tick or not too tick

  • Christmas Present check time! – What I mean by this is, see what I already have gathered, write it down and check what else I need.

This is done! I have also though gotten a few more presents since. I don’t really have that much left to get honestly. Which is fantastic, especially since work has gotten slow recently.

  • Get the Lolsy’s Shop up and running.

It’s not up and running…Yet…But I’ve started to make and get things together for it. I want to work on it a little longer first. I can see though I may have not needed to make a entirely different website for it now though…But we’ll wait and see! I’m not getting rid of it yet.

  • Get a Yoga Schedule – Focus mainly on strengthen my sciatica.

I haven’t gotten around to making a Yoga schedule, but I have been doing more breathing exercises instead. Unfortunately I nearly had a panic attack and after talking to my therapist, I thought it was just better too learn how to do breathing. Which probably sounds weird in itself.

  • Make a budget. I don’t know how but somehow even though my anxiety has lessened and I’ve been able to start catching buses again. Somehow I spent more money than when I’d caught taxis? Makes no sense!

This is actually going well, because I have started to feel more comfortable taking buses again. That has saved me SO much! It shows, I’ve been able to get more Christmas presents as the money I’ve saved as allowed me too. So I’m hitting two birds with one stone really (what a terrible saying,lol).

So two and a half out of four, not to bad.

Hopefully I will actually do them this time!

July Goals

This month is very much about getting things that I’ve gotten together and actually start using and creating with them!

  • Get a Yoga Schedule – Focus mainly on strengthen my sciatica.
  • Make a budget. I don’t know how but somehow even though my anxiety has lessened and I’ve been able to start catching buses again. Somehow I spent more money than when I’d caught taxis? Makes no sense!
  • Create some healthy winter recipes.

CREATE!!!

June Goals…Tick or not to Tick?

  • Start making the candles.

I did, but oh my goodness. It’s been a little harder than I thought as well! I bought SO much of it as well. Without realising that I had bought so much of it.

  • Look into labels for candles.

I did do this, I think if I were to sell candles I have to put some warning labels at least on the bottoms of the candles. So I will have to get those.

  • Create something…That is something which I cannot tell you about yet, until it’s all set up…Watch this space for more…

This was done! It was my new (hopefully better organised) website. Which you can find here: Lolly’s Library – The Website

  • Go for my drivers licence…At least my “L’s”

I did this as well. The first time I got one of the give way questions wrong. I had the right answer to begin with as well! I was so frustrated with myself!

I DID IT!!!

  • Go through my pants again and get rid of ones that don’t fit and aren’t not suitable/warm enough for Winter.

I did this one too…But I also bought new pants…I hurt my leg a couple of years ago and put some weight on. Now I’ve been losing it a bit lately. Not only have I been wanting to get rid of pants, but I also have too because some are getting baggier on me now. I always keep at least a pair around whether I put on weight or not. Just in case I put on or lose weight again.

  • Go through my pants again and get rid of ones that don’t fit and aren’t not suitable/warm enough for Winter.

I find that the problem with Winter is that I don’t actually set up many goals for myself, because I am not a Winter person. My goals are mainly to stay inside for as long as humanely possibly to be honest. Which is why you’ll probably find a lot of my goals for the next couple of months, will be things I can do indoors most of the time.

May Goals…Too tick, or not too tick?

  • Try on jackets and coats, get rid of ones that I haven’t worn in either years or ever.

I have done this one. It’s amazing how big coats and jackets are! They are not like tshirts and tops where you can fit a few in one bag to get rid of. You can put one or two coats into a bag only. There were a couple I “fit into” just can’t close them up anymore. Which is so sad! Of course they are my favourite coats as well.

  • Look into making my own candles and getting my own quotes on jars. (I was initially inspired by this after thinking about putting Magical Monday on a candle jar for myself. Then I thought why not look more into this?)

I have actually found a couple of sites which look great! It’s been completely fascinating and I have been getting even more ideas!

https://candlemaking.com.au/collections/candle-making-kits

http://www.labelprintingco.com.au/candle-label-printing.html – There is a pop up conservation window, where they’ll ask if you want any help.

https://candlemaking.com.au/products/warning-labels-for-candles

  • Try to create candles with certain fragrances as well…Try to research into what a “motivating” fragrance might be, for example.

This has been a bit harder just because you can’t really “smell” things over the computer. So when I’ve been going into stores, I’ve been trying to see if I can smell them. I actually found a few soaps and I liked their smells,lol. So I’ll have to see if I can create those smell…Watch this space for more!lol

  • Finish up writing the review for “Lord of Shadows”.

I did that too…And you can read it here.

  • Look into healthy Winter recipes.

There are a LOT of soup recipes for Winter. Soups and Stews…When I was little, I used to call Stews…Spew,lol…I have discovered lots of different lasagnes and yummy pies too! I can’t wait to make some of them! I might even post them on here…Don’t you feel lucky? =D

No joke, we went from 104 (F) weather (40 c) to Winter the very next day…Been a bit of a shock to the system.

March Goals

  • Write up about the Anxiety apps that I have found about over the last month. I will try and do this in next couple of weeks.
  • Get some craft supplies to start crafting ideas I’ve seen.
  • Make sure my Winter clothes fit me…(We’re in Autumn at the moment, heading into Winter).
  • Look into how to start drawing…I am such a visual person and I have wanted to start learning how to draw…I think it’d be perfect!…I’m also open to any suggestions.
  • Look into doing a pyjama movie night for my birthday.
  • Look for a frame that will fit 4 A4 size pictures in.

Februarys Goal…Tick or not too Tick?

  • Last month I got rid of a lot of clothes and accessories. This month I want to go through my technologies, for example, my computer and phone. To get rid of any old and useless files/photos etc.

This one has been great! I have saved SO much space on both my computer and my phone. I did not realise how many old files I had saved or just had had nothing to do with anything anymore. I also saved a few things on backup via an external terabyte. I think this is something I am going to start doing at least once a year now. I also went through my saved/bookmark pages and got rid of a few of them…A lot of the links were either broken, or were a completely different site altogether!

  • Look for a 4 space A4 photo frame in one.

I didn’t even get around to looking for one to be honest…I’ll have to leave that up to March!

  • Organise my photo albums.

I have been going through and have organised quite a lot, I didn’t realise how long it’d take. I’ve got so many doubles and photos that I don’t want in photo albums. It’s a really lengthy progress.

  • RENEW MY PASSPORT!!! I really need to get this one done!

I did it…It was so quick and easy, I don’t know why I waited for so long. It was expensive though. When I think about it though, its over at least a 10 year period, so it’s quiet cheap really. Well technically it’s about 13 years, because there’s an expiry date on your actual passport, but you still have a couple of years after that to renew it. It might be different for different countries. Even though my old passport expired in 2015, I can still use it until August, in Australia, this year for identification.

  • Compare Anxiety Apps:

I have used a few over the past month or so. So I’ve decided to write up about them in a Blog Post, later this month.

  • Write a post for my category “The Nerd Life”…I haven’t written one for a long time!

I did this one too =D It was one of my popular posts of the month as well. Created some interesting discussion. You can find it here at “It’s a hard-knock life”
