We’re over halfway through 2014, yikes! It doesn’t seem that out there for me as I’m already working on IEP’s, school curriculum and documents that are for the year 2014-2015. I’ve even had my school calendar for 2014-2015 for a month. The 2014-2015 school year is starting in a little over a month (I teach summer school, but my school is year round, so its a little different). As I look at my goals, I find myself reflecting on not only how far I’ve come, but how far I have to go on some goals. I even finished one goal already, hurray! By the end of the month I may have another goal completed too. Let’s review:
Goal: Earn $1500 in extra income (sales and writing)
I’m a little over $100 away from finishing this goal and I anticipate possibly finishing it this month!
Goal: Pay off $10,000 of student loans
I’m just under $5,000 and with only 6 months to go, I’ll be bumping up the payments. I want to pay more, but I only make so much. I did get a raise last month though!
Crafts, Video Games and Reading
I’m progressing at a good rate on all 3 and I know that by August I’ll be around 3/4 of the way through all 3.
I’m doing pretty well with this goal and I’m around 100 items away from completing it. Once I have a couple more sales, take books to the used bookstore and sell some old clothes, this goal will be done!
I’m embarrassed by this one because I’m only halfway through. I did specify charities and while I do help out with a lot of odds and ends, I’m not really expanding as much as I’d like to with this one. There’s so much I can do, I’m not utilizing it…
I have a vacation week coming up the first week of August and I plan on taking one day to go to the city and get a new wardrobe and thereby get rid of a lot of worn out things in my closet. Heaven knows I need to.
They’re all works in progress, though the traveling one does need more progress!
I’ve been busy in my kitchen throughout the year and I’m excited to try even more things in the future. Over halfway done with this one!
In July I plan on working more on all my goals and hopefully checking another goal off my list! I think I might actually meet some by the end of the summer, meaning I can focus more on my harder/more intensive goals. The debt repayment one is the one I want to focus on the most, but its probably the hardest goal (due to restraint of funds). Where there’s a will, there’s a way though!
