As always, I’m back to review this last month of goals and set my new goals for this month.
1) Keep to my bedtime
Uh…yeah, no. I did ok some nights, but honestly I’ve never been good about keeping to a consistent bedtime. Overall though I think I was better about getting enough sleep this month than previously. But, on Thursday I was up until 1:30.
2) Eat breakfast every day
Hahaha. I did a little better. If microwaving a frozen waffle and wolfing it down counts as breakfast. But I didn’t even do that every day.
3) Pray every day
4) Use my budget
Wow. I failed every single goal. That’s impressive.
1) Pick a breakfast food that’s quick, easy, and which I will enjoy
This is to help me eat breakfast more often. Also, I need to get up with enough time to eat too.
2) Read through Part 3 of Rediscovering Catholicism
I’m working my way through it in spurts. I read some in the summer and read a bunch last week over Fall Break. Now I want to be more consistent. But I’m trying to be realistic. Part 3 is about 100 pages. So that’s an average of 3 pages per day. I also have the weekends and Thanksgiving Break to read larger chunks.
3) Work on Summer Internships–email archdiocese, pick 3-5 solid possibilities
I’ve been thinking about what I want to do next summer: Totus Tuus? Internship with my diocese? Education internship somewhere? I need to do some thinking about this and get in contact with people.
4) Do an exercise video once a week on Saturdays
Along with Zumba classes twice a week, this will give me 3 exercises every week. The plan is to do this on Saturday with some of my suitemates. Thanksgiving weekend doesn’t count.
5) Make Spanish flashcards
I’d like to do better in that class and since I got back from break I’ve been feeing a little lost in the vocab. So, flashcards I think would be a good idea.
6) Start ministry-related tasks before the day they’re due
I have a tendency to start things the day they’re due. Or the night before, if it’s due in the morning. For ministry-related stuff this sometimes means I’m stressed out the day of. Hopefully I can remedy that by planning ahead and getting a jump on things.
7) Take my temperature every morning as part of charting
So, charting hasn’t been going so good lately. I have not been on top of it at all.
8) Go to Thursday Mass
I have an adoration slot right after the 12:05 Mass, so it makes sense to go to that Mass. Also, I need to go to a Mass where I’m not an assistant sacristan so that I can appreciate and absorb it.
9) Write my 7 Quick Takes every week and 3 other blog posts throughout the month
I have not been good about blogging lately and I’d like to do more.
Check back in next month to see how I did!
