So you’re probably wondering how I did for February… … I don’t feel like I failed. Though I certainly did not do as well as I did in January. But February is my month, so I installed social media back in and would have relaxed if life hadn’t consistently been slapping me in the face.
Things have changed a little, so I decided to redo my table for the needs that I currently have. I’m working on ways to work the things in my table into each other. For example, I want to work on my photography, and I need to water my tree and drink more water.
So I’ve made the decision, that when I water my tree I have to drink double of what he does. Yes, my tree is a he. And once a week when I water him. I’m going to take pictures so I can document his growth.
As far as writing my book goes, that’s been going great, I managed to get 5,000 words last month. As far as blogging you would think, that I hadn’t written anything by my post. Until you look into my drafts, I just couldn’t figure out what direction to go. My thoughts, blackness, anime, comics, relationship tips?
Even I’m not sure and I’ve seriously struggled with my serious post. So what I’m going to do right now is make fun posts, about things I love.
So as I said in my first post, what I am doing is a three-column table of things I need to do to make my life better. The titles of each column are weekly, bi-weekly, and monthly. January is almost over.
How am I doing?
Considering I am trying to build habits not horribly.
To be fair I am most consistent with taking care of my tree and writing. I’ve actually surprised myself with how consistent I’ve been with writing my book. Even though I’ve found it hard, I’ve just been pushing through my writing block. The blog is getting more than one post a week, and my tree’s soil is moist.
Where I’m dragging my feet?
With everything phone and personal time-related, I’ve been rather bad. I just realized that I have to delete TikTok, one of my favorite apps. I don’t want to make excuses. But I can’t have apps that consistently need me to interact to use them, but don’t add anything to where I’m trying to go with my life. Don’t get me wrong I still have games on my switch and phone games.
But I’m good at managing time with those. Social media, well it’s mind-numbing. I can easily lose hours, on it when I can be doing things I enjoy more.
For January, I give myself a B-.
Mainly because I would have conquered all of my monthly things if I hadn’t gotten sick, so I’m being lenient on myself. I won’t be so much next month though.
I know myself if I say that I am doing something as a new years resolution. I’ll just forget about it. A list with no plan doesn’t work for me.
What I’m doing is making a list of all the things that I want to do. Things for my personal life, things for my personal life, and things I want to do for fun.
Now after I’ve written all the things I want to do. I am making a realistic plan for doing these things. You cannot really say that when you never go to a gym that saying that suddenly going to start going three times a day. People do it but let’s be honest. If you want to make a pattern, it’s much better to start small and build up. So that’s what I’m doing is making a realistic timeline for me to do things. I’m not trying to rush it or stress it to be fair.
I’m not even limiting it to the end of the year. What I’m trying to do, is make plans that I can be consistent with keeping. I am making a table with three columns. Things I will do every week, every other week, and every month.
Every other week
Read one chapter of a fantasy book.
Do an outside based activity.
Two lessons of Duolingo.
Make a blog post about comics or film.
Try out a new recipe.
Make a blog post.
Have one chapter written and revised.
A little bit of my list
Here’s a taste of what I’m going working on doing. I’ll keep you updated in a month to see if it actually worked for me.
