September Update: Goals for 2013

I’ve done a horrible job of posting new blogs in the past two months.  I do plan on doing these more often, but somehow I find it increasingly hard to be a hermit.  Some days I DO plan on coming home at 4pm and doing hermit things like reading, crafting and playing video games, but it never happens.  Of course, I’m joking, kind of.  I am an introvert at heart and as much as I love being around friends and family, I do need time to myself.  Solitude relaxes me and gives me quiet peace.  Introverted spiel aside, lets talk about my September progress on my 2013 goals;


Reflection:  I’ve made good progress on most of my goals this month.  These are some *cough, reading *cough* that I need to seriously work on or they won’t get done.  I’ll be honest about my reading goal, I’ve had it for 4 years now and I’ve gotten as close as 97 books.  I probably won’t reach 100 books, but I will try.  As for clothing, I’ve emptied my closet of things that needed to go and I alloted myself an extra $100 last month towards new clothes.  I didn’t spend quite that much and I had trouble finding things.  It’s hard to find boots for a girl who wears a size 5 and wants to buy them in stores.  Video games are looking the same way unless I get some serious snow days.  I’ve almost met my goal for recipes (1 to go!) and crafts will certainly get done since I have like, 10 more crafts to make before Christmas.
