2014 Goal Update for April


Yesterday I spent the day going from here to there with two friends.  We started off at the Farmers Market, then played tennis, had lunch, went to free comic book day, two estate sales and goodwill.  As you can see from the pictures above, I got my hands on five comics and at Goodwill I found a complete in box copy of Pandemic: In the Lab!  Only $2 for a $40 board game I want?  Sure thing!  It’s also May fourth, (May the fourth be with you) and time for my monthly goal update.  I goofed and accidently deleted the original, so this is a more condensed version.

I knew going into this month my goals wouldn’t see a lot of progress.  Since the beginning of the month, I’ve made more progress on my May goals including beating a new game, reading a book and paying off more on my loans.  We’ll see where the rest of the month leads!

Did you set any goals for the month of May?  Any goals for 2014?
