Vampire Knight, Anne with an E and Obsessed with Writing (May 2017)

This is a transparent monthly reflection where I take the time to look back, view my progress and make adjustments.

Monthly Project: Finish online classes.

GUYS. I am so flipping thankful I'M DONE. *throws confetti and wiggles for dayz* Taking classes online has been super rewarding, but I am so ready to move on and focus on something else. Something bigger. I'm thinking MORE writing, MORE reading and MORE creating!

Health → Exercise 3 days/week, drink 65oz. water/day

Exercise: 7/14 (50%)

Notes: Aha, aha, aha................. whoops. I don't know what happened here. For some reason, I just couldn't get myself to exercise. I always had this excuse that there's something "better" or more pressing that needed to be done. But now that summer is HERE, I'd really like to up the intensity and focus on improving my body and upping my energy level.

Water: 30/31 (97%)

Notes: This is the first month this year that I've been drinking enough water and I feel so goooood! This is amazing. This is wonderful. I think getting sick really helped too - there was nothing I could do but lay around and drinking water. ;)

Finances → Grow

May Income: Unknown

Notes: It's coming along rather nicely, don't you think?

Career → Prep book for publication

Notes: I edited BUT it wasn't the book I was originally planning on editing, so... yeah... This seems to be a theme. I keep letting this editing thing slip me up. In June I am going to find a better way of approaching this. :)

Personal/Spiritual Development → Work toward earning my Bachelor's degree

Complete and pass Microeconomics: I CONQUERED THAT EXAM, BABY!

Notes: So. Darn. Happy. Like. I. Can't. The bonus is that I'm DONE for the summer!!

Play/Recreation → Write 600+ words/day

How many days this month I wrote: 19/31 (61%)

Notes: I hit a REALLY good flow from the 15th to the 22nd - I think it helped that I was sick all that week and didn't want to do anything else. ^.^ One of the days I wrote over 3k words. 3K WORDS MY FRIENDS. And then I hit a burn out. BUT THAT'S OKAY.

Service → Post on my blog (at least) once a month.

I posted this month on Self Known: Yepper doodles!


Notes: Thank you thank you thank you thank you for reading and commenting and being so flipping amazing. <3
