Goal Achievement Report – April 2013

Alright, let’s see what I was able to accomplish!

Money Goals

  • Find a few ways for this Rainy Day blog to make some funds, however small it may be…
  • Find a new way of making money.
  • Finish last commission on list and take new ones (5).
  • Sell unneeded items on ebay and amazon to make extra $.
  • To make enough money this month to pay my car payment ($301) AND half of my June car insurance money.
  • To spend less than $100 on me.
  • To find a job.

Watching the comic book shop for my friend went great!  In fact, I was able to save over $90 worth of comic books thanks to my great friend and the deal he offered to me.  In case you’re reading this, thanks again so much!  I think that although I wasn’t being handed cash, this qualifies in finding a new way to make some monetary gain as I am completely square with my subscription list now at the comic book shop. While I was there, I was able to finish my last commission and will have it sent out to my buddy in Baltimore by the end of this week.  I want to be sure that I scan it and add it onto my online portfolio.

Sadly, Amazon and Ebay have been very neglectful to my piggy bank this month.  To give you an idea, only 5 items sold from my Amazon shop in the past two weeks.  That’s it!  Man is it driving me nuts!  HOWEVER! I only $79.21 this month!  That means I was under my $100 goal and all is well!

I also have an interview on Monday for a potential lucrative job, and was asked for further information from another possible employer this week as well.  So.. keeping my fingers crossed!

Rainy Day Goals

  • Convert my brother’s, my guy’s, and my own music to the existing external hard drive for easy access.
  • Organize my dvd/blu-ray collection.
  • Get rid of at LEAST 20 items this month, via selling, donation, or throw-away.
  • To continue organizing my room for optimal business format/personal use.
  • Hack my journal into an accessible planner/organizer.
  • Go through my books and see what items I will sell/donate.
  • Start to get the house ready for a graduation party (my brother’s).

The only one that has been done on this list is the last one.  I’ve been so dedicated to cleaning, organizing, and painting to get ready for the graduation party that I haven’t done much else.  A lot of household chores are getting done instead, and a lot of my own “goals” are falling to the wayside.  Perhaps I should do something about this?  Spend 30 minutes every other day on one of these goals next month?  What do you think?

Personal Goals

  • Continue the MWF posts for Rainy Day & Gamer Talk.
  • Add a Paypal button for tips or purchases on this blog and Gamer Talk for donations.
  • Create logos/banners for both blogs.
  • Add artwork to various art sites and sell my artwork online.
  • Continue my art blog.
  • Refine my gamer podcast and restart it.
  • Participate in Move Your Ass Challenge
  • Blow my 100 mile goal for MYAC out of the water.
  • Lose 20 pounds.

I’m participating in MYAC, and man, that 100 mile goal was unrealistic for the first month.  I will honestly be happy if I get to 30 miles at this point. I think next month I’ll move it to 45 and we’ll progress from there.  The pounds aren’t necessarily shedding either, but the inches seem to be.  My clothing feels just a little bit looser, and I can comfortably be in my bridesmaid dress.  I have to kick things into gear though on the rest of this stuff.  I think that my weekly goal of mowing the lawn will be a big kicker for me in the exercise department as we have a big enough lawn that it takes me about 4 hours to mow.  I’m hoping I can shave that down to 3 1/2 next week depending on the heat.

Well, it seems I’ve been really lazy when it comes to my own goals, but when it comes to the house, landscaping, and prep for graduation party, I’ve been rocking it.  Now if only I could start getting these pounds to shed…

What should I add to my goal list?  Am I being a little too optimistic in trying to get a bunch of things done?  Of all of the ones I did NOT finish, which one should I crack down upon and accomplish in May?

Count those Raindrops!

Progress Report – Goals for April 2013

In an effort to keep myself accountable, here I go in seeing what goals I have accomplished, what I still need to do, and which ones should be moved to next month.

Money Goals

  • Find a few ways for this Rainy Day blog to make some funds, however small it may be…
  • Find a new way of making money.
  • Finish last commission on list and take new ones (5).
  • Sell unneeded items on ebay and amazon to make extra $.
  • To make enough money this month to pay my car payment ($301) AND half of my June car insurance money.
  • To spend less than $100 on me.
  • To find a job.

Alright, although I haven’t found a new way to make money, I was offered a chance to work for my comic books by watching the store and manning the sales while my friends are up at C2E2 this weekend.  I’ll be able to catch up on my subscriptions, and this will give me the future opportunity (perhaps) to do this more when my friend needs me to fill in for him and an easy way for me to save a little extra money while I’m still unemployed.  Unfortunately, there is just not a lot of things that are selling ebay and amazon right now.  February was a whole different story, but now that people are no longer getting tax checks and instead are making tax payments.. I’m not having that much business.  I’m hoping it will pick up in May and June.  Still no job, but so far, I’ve spent very little money on myself this month, and I’m hoping to keep it that way..

Rainy Day Goals

  • Convert my brother’s, my guy’s, and my own music to the existing external hard drive for easy access.
  • Organize my dvd/blu-ray collection.
  • Get rid of at LEAST 20 items this month, via selling, donation, or throw-away.

I think next month I’ll move it to 45 and we’ll progress from there.  The pounds aren’t necessarily shedding either, but the inches seem to be.  My clothing feels just a little bit looser, and I can comfortably be in my bridesmaid dress.  I have to kick things into gear though on the rest of this stuff.

Well, it seems I’ve been really lazy when it comes to my own goals, but when it comes to the house, landscaping, and prep for graduation party, I’ve been rocking it.  Now if only I could start getting these pounds to shed…

Wish me luck!

Count those Raindrops!

Move Your Ass Challenge UPDATE

Well, sadly I think I got my hopes up too high.  We’re already past mid-month mark, and I still have 82.3 miles to go.  Did I get it in my head that I could easy do this?  Perhaps, but I used to be able to do this kind of stuff no problem.  See, I was a softball player in my younger years and I remember doing nothing but running.. running… running.  I was never a fast runner, but sometimes I could definitely get my sprint on when I knew my bat connected with that gorgeous neon yellow ball just right.

I also have not been counting my normal walking miles.  Once the weather gets nice (been raining ALL week, I can’t even mow the lawn! ARGH!) I should be getting my groove on with walking, jogging, and running.  This month I was counting on getting those miles from biking though.  Sadly, I’m not sure I’ll be able to do it.  Unless of course I kick my butt in gear and start doing 7.5 miles or more every day for the rest of the month.

What do you think?  Should I still go for the 100 miles? Or should I get realistic and perhaps knock it down to 50?

Goal Achievement Report – January 2013

Time to see how much I’ve achieved since last month.  I haven’t looked at this since the progress report, and honestly, I’m a little nervous.  I can see what those big shindig scientific studies mean when they say that the month of January is perhaps one of the most depressing.  I had very little motivation almost the entire month, and ended up slacking a little bit on the posts for the blog here.  I apologize for that, but as I said before, I’m back in the game and am hoping to get things going again.  Shall we have a look see at the failures?

Money Goals

  • Find a few ways for this Rainy Day blog to make some funds, however small it may be…
  • Sell unneeded items on ebay and amazon to make extra $.
  • To make enough money this month to pay my car payment ($301).
  • To make enough money to pay all my bills without hurting my savings account too much.
  • To find a job.

Alright, bad news first. No job, and I hit the savings account a little bit last month (by $131) because of the bills.  I’ve made adjustments to accommodate and I have put in nearly 100 applications in at various places and am still waiting.  I DID find a way to make money on Rainy Day, but that has been delayed until I find a decent enough theme for Rainy Day.  I guess I’m just too picky.  I also made enough money to pay my car payment and am continuing in the downsizing project and selling things on ebay and amazon to make money.  I even reopened my etsy site last month and with the help of my mother, we’re trying to sell jewelry, upcycled and/or vintage items.  Please have a look at every site, especially the etsy… I’m still looking for the first sale there.

Rainy Day Goals

  • Help my mother organize/clean the home.
  • Organize my dvd/blu-ray collection.
  • Organize the shipping supplies.
  • Get rid of unneeded items that can either not be sold or donated.
  • To continue organizing my room for optimal business format/personal use.

The shipping supplies have been organized! And a post will show that soon!  My dvd/blu-ray collection however… not so much, but I DID organize a part of my mother’s collection that is currently residing in our entertainment center in the living room.  It looks SO MUCH better!  Series and seasons are grouped together as well as all the Christmas movies have a shelf of their own.  So.. can that count?  The getting rid of unneeded items is always a continuous project in my life, and I am happy to say I took out two trash bags last month that could not be donated or sold to the trash! I admit I’m a bit of a pack rat when it comes to old mail and school work, and a lot has been cleared out!  Again, the continuous organization of my room is still in the works..

Personal Goals

  • Continue the MWF posts for Rainy Day & Gamer Talk.
  • Create a notebook/planner for each blog.
  • Create logos for both blogs.
  • Add artwork to various art sites and sell my artwork online.
  • Continue my art blog.
  • Refine my gamer podcast and restart it.
  • Lose 10 pounds.

Okay… here’s the category that I really lacked on… Took a small break with the blog posts, no notebook/planners, no logos (only sketches), some artwork was added, but not much, art blog not updated, podcast not restarted… Ouch.  I did not do well on this one at ALL!  However, the only thing I can say I accomplished, is.. as of today I have lost 6.6 pounds since starting watching what I eat mid-way through January.  That’s good right? Right?

 

*Deep Breath*

Well, overall.. I’m not proud of January.  And that was a hard to face myself moment.  I do not think I tried at all in working on these goals and I know I should have tried harder.  However there is February, and I’m glad for that.  But goodness! We’re already mid-way through, I don’t think I’ll be making any big goals for this month.  Instead, I’ll probably focus on working on the 1001 things to do in 101 days this month instead.  What do you think?

 

Count those Raindrops!

Goal Achievement Report – December 2012

Well, January is here and it’s time to see what all I accomplished in December! Holding myself accountable on these things have helped me make a lot of progress on myself and my life.  Thanks guys!  Please keep it up and I promise to do the same.  😉

Money Goals

  • Find a few ways for this Rainy Day blog to make some funds, however small it may be…
  • Sell unneeded items on ebay and amazon to make extra $.
  • To make enough money this month to pay either my car payment ($301), my auto insurance ($336), or both.
  • To make enough money to pay all my bills without hurting my savings account too much.
  • To find a job.

Alright, still looking into finding ways of this blog making me money.  If you have any ideas, please let me know.  Also, I am happy to say that I did indeed sell a bunch of items on amazon and ebay and ended up being in between ($436 in between) the car + auto insurance total with just this accomplishment!  Yay, me!  As for the rest of the bills, they were paid for with the unemployment that I ended up receiving and then some.

Still no luck on finding a job, but with unemployment coming in… I have some time to find one now and I don’t have to be too desperate.  It’s time to make me better and that’s exactly my intention.

Rainy Day Goals

  • To finish the cabinet revival.
  • Finish the Christmas tree.
  • Help my mother organize/clean the home.
  • Find alternative means for gifts for those on my gift list.
  • Get rid of unneeded items that can either not be sold or donated.
  • To continue organizing my room for optimal business format/personal use.

Cabinet revival and Christmas tree are finished thankfully!  I’ll have posts for you soon as it has been a pretty hectic month.  I’ve been cleaning and organizing the home with my mom (it can always use more work), but sadly my room has been neglected because of it and now needs a deep cleansing.  I usually end up spending about $300-400 in Christmas gifts each year, but I was able to scale that down to $100 and the people I gave gifts to were still just as happy!  Who knew?  When it came to the alternative gifts, it ended up becoming an alternative means to make money, and I’ll be sure to let you know when the time is right on just what I did with that too!

Personal Goals

  • Continue the MWF posts for Rainy Day.
  • Add artwork to various art sites and sell my artwork online.
  • Continue my art blog.
  • Refine my gamer blog/podcast and restart it.

I ended up only missing a couple of days this month on the MWF post schedule for Rainy Day.  That’s not bad!  Honestly, I took about a week off (Christmas-New Years) and only posted things that I already had in the wings to make up for it.  I’ve added artwork onto BigCartel, renewed my subscription to Deviantart (which I will be updating this month), and will be updating my artwork blog this coming week as well.  I have also restarted the gamer blog and a podcast is in the wings!

Overall, I would say MOST of my goals were accomplished, and I am most proud of myself!

Count those raindrops!

101 Things in 1001 Days

Happy New Year everybody!  In truth, in the past my year didn’t seem to really start anew until about August (I blame it on the restart of the school year), but this is the first time in twenty years where the New Year really means… a new year.  The year past has been a whirlwind of changes — student taught, graduated college with two bachelors degrees, experienced a company merger, hunkered down and started eliminating my debt, started my Rainy Day Savin’ blog, survived the merger only to quit in November, won unemployment, restarted Gamer Talk, rekindled friendships…. just to name some of the major incidents anyway.  With all of those events happening to me last year, I can only see even better things to come in 2013.  I honestly can’t wait! 🙂

Instead of making new year resolutions, I have decided to jump on the 101 Things to Do in 1001 Days bandwagon. If you’re not familiar with this phenomenon, check out Day Zero Project; the originators of the really neat idea.  It started yesterday officially, so this is a day late, (despite me starting it yesterday too) but I like the MWF schedule and wanted to give you a bit of a break from all the resolution/goal posts out there. This is also not to say that I will not have my monthly goals, but rather I have a more long term goal list that I can look forward to and strive in making myself better. Throughout the day of brainstorming, I’ve gathered a random collection of things I want to experience and/or achieve in the next three-ish years (do the math.. we’re off by 94 days for a complete tri-year segment) and will be marking them off the list as I achieve them. I do better with concrete goals than abstract ideals and resolutions anyway, so maybe some things will start getting crossed off soon!

So without further ado (and rambling), I present to you all, the list:

Artistic License:

1. Write a graphic novel script.
2. Draw that graphic novel.
