Well, now that we are officially halfway through the year, I think it’s time to take another look at my 2015 Goals List and see how much, or little, progress I have made. I can tell you right now that I haven’t made too much progress with it. Of course I’m a bit disappointed that I haven’t been more proactive in getting these goals done, but at the same time, some of the goals are ones that take some time. In any case, let’s take a look at my progress!
1 // Graduate from college – Completed May 16th.
As you all know from my post, Class of 2015… We Did It!, I graduated from college after a long 5 1/2 years of blood, sweat, hand cramps, and tears (and yes, all these occurred).
2 // Get a job in the field I love – In progress.
Though I am currently working as a freelance/contract videographer for the same company I interned with my last semester, I can’t say it’s my dream job. Though freelancing is a part of it, I was thinking more sports/wedding freelance while also working in a television studio – that my friends, is my dream. So I’m applying to the local stations and praying that God will lead me to right one.
3 // Eat somewhat healthier – Not complete.
It’s hard to say if I can really complete this one or not. Let’s just say life is a little hectic right now and I don’t think I can really get focused on this one until after the move in September… but I guess even just adding a few more fruits and veggies into my diet would count, right?
4 // Complete another Goodreads Challenge – In progress.
I’m slowly, but surely getting there. I wanted to read at least one book per month, but you know, life happened and I got of track. But now that I have some extra free time I’m hoping to make it up and maybe even complete this one sooner than I planned.
5 // Get into the habit of journal writing – In progress.
I have an app called Day One for my Macbook and iPhone that acts as a journal. While I don’t write daily, or even weekly, I get into these spurts of writing in that journal. However, this past weekend has been an eye opener to me that I really need to start a journal and I will be making this a regular habit in my life.
6 // Do a home study on at least one book of the Bible – In progress.
I just started a Bible study on the book of James and after just two lessons I know it’s going to be a good one. I knew this one wasn’t going to happen until after I was done with college… so I can expect this to be done sometime this summer.
7 // Donate money to an organization/cause – Not complete.
I really need to research where I want to donate some money to… not that I need to do that much research – it’s more like, just pick a place! Ha!
8 // Mail a handwritten letter to someone – Completed June 6th.
I actually did this one! I sent a handwritten letter to my best friend a few weeks ago and she told me she really loved it. Oh, and get this… she got it on the day known as National Best Friend Day! How perfect!
9 // Start a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly feature on my blog – In progress.
I’d categorize this as “in progress” because I do have the Blogger Love posts I participate in each Friday, however I am still hoping to implement my own original feature on this blog by the end of the year.
So, that’s it. I guess I’m not doing as bad, considering some of the tasks do take some time to complete. Of course as some happen I will update in a post. And you can bet there will be one at the end of the year to see how I did as well as set some new goals for the new year.
On another note, I crossed off an item on my 25 Before 25 list! I got another piercing on my right ear!
By the way, did you know you can already buy 2016 calendars/planners? I just saw some at Barnes and Noble the other day and I found it funny – I mean, it’s still six months away!
