January was kind of a rough month for me, which is why I only ended up posting twice. I knew how hard with was going to be to find a job, but I would never have thought that it would take as long as it has. I’m 100% ready for something new and while I’ve been trying to take charge and make it happen, there is only so much I can do! I needed to step away from my blog and start focusing more on my job search because I was using it as an excuse for applying to more places. I’m hopeful that February will be a lot better and I’m excited to start getting back into my blog and make all my goals happen. Here are my February goals!
START EMAIL COURSE FOR OPT-IN – I’ve been wanting to create this for a while now and I have an outline of what each lesson will consist of. Now it’s time to actually get started on creating the lessons and the workbooks.
FINALLY, COMPLETE PORTFOLIO PAGE – Now that I’ve been working on a few projects for clients, it’s time to actually start putting them onto my portfolio page so that there is more than just one!
USE THE POMODORO TECHNIQUE – It’s really not good for me to listen/watch Netflix while I’m writing posts or doing other blog related things that take a little more focus, so when Jessica told me about this technique I knew I had to test it out. It’s worked really well for me so far and I think it will help me stay on top of things.
CREATE A TO DO LIST FOR THE DAY – I always create a million different to do lists, but they were always just things I wanted to get done at some point instead of what I needed to do for that day. I still want to set certain tasks for certain days, but since I took a short break from blogging there are a few things I need to catch up on first!
CELEBRATE GALENTINES DAY – My sisters, cousin and I all fell in love with Park & Rec last year, so we decided that we’re going to do something on the 13th. I’m not sure what exactly we’re doing yet, but I know that we NEED to have waffles with a ton of whipped cream.
READ 1 BOOK – Well, I failed at reading a book last month, but I really want to start reading one of the Rifle Paper Co books that I got. I’m thinking either A Little Princess or Heidi!
COLOR IN MY ADULT COLORING BOOK REGULARLY – DONE – I colored the front and back of my Enchanted Forest book, it might not seem like a lot, but they are super detailed.
READ 1 BOOK – FAIL – Like I mentioned above, I didn’t end up reading a book. You would think I would have ended up reading one during my blogging break, but I ended up spending a little more time with my family than I usually do.
KEEP UP WITH EXERCISING – SOMEWHAT DONE – I exercised a little bit and even did some Just Dance on the Wii, but I probably could have exercised a little more. I’m going to try to keep doing Just Dance because it’s a little more fun than a normal workout.
START SAVING UP MONEY – DONE – Obviously I’m not completely done with saving up, but I did pretty good with not spending money on random things I don’t really need. Christmas definitely hurt my bank account so it’s still not back where I want it to be.
APPLY TO 8 PLACES A WEEK – SOMEWHAT DONE – I definitely kept applying to places a ton, but not 8 places a week. I’ll still be continuing to apply and keep my fingers crossed.
BRAINSTORM EXTRA THINGS I CAN DO TO STAND OUT FROM OTHER APPLICANTS – DONE – I sent something out in the mail for a job that I’m really hoping to get so we will see what happens!
