Untitled (Oh how hipster)

Looking through my old posts, I feel like this is just regurgitated whinging.

I still don’t know what I want to do with this blog. I made a schedule but I’m not sure I want to partake. Originally, I wanted this blog to be a place where I could easily see all the goals I wanted to achieve for the year. I thought it would be encouraging for accountability too. But accountability it seems, does not motivate me and I slowly quickly lost interest in writing.

What is the ultimate goal? This same question mirrors my life. I have no clue. I know what I want to do now, but not 5-10 years time. My tastes change far too often. I do envy people who have a set goal and go for it.

Maybe I should stick to the schedule and see what happens? And if it really is becoming a chore, I might have to say goodbye (if I cannæ think of anything to write about).

Well my goals for the next month are to do regular housekeeping (a full clean monthly and light clean weekly), budget for the month (which I’ve already done), blog regularly (LOL), do daily gratitude and to start exercising/being more active (I swear I was a sloth in a previous life).

Not too bad. The worst one is the exercise. I was quite active as a child but then as I got older I just got more sedentary. I think that’s somewhat the same for the majority.

By the way: the schedule I have is a monthly goals post, weekly round-up and a weekly gratitude post which may be illustrated. That’s all the posts I can think of doing right now. We’ll see how this goes!

A Realisation

Is realisation spelled with an ‘s’ or a ‘z’? As a UK citizen, I have grown up with British spellings but what does confuse me is when the odd American spelling seeps into the language and I have no idea which one is correct. Even writing this paragraph, the word ‘realisation’ has a red zig-zag line underneath. I did also spell ‘spelled’ as ‘spelt‘ so maybe I am not the best person to be questioning the zig-zag. (It doesn’t even recognize zig-zag as a word!)

This is not the subject of this post though.

April Goals

It’s that time again! March was a hopeful month. Anticipating the arrival of spring and warmer weather. The latter never happens in Britain though. Major goals I accomplished in March were:

♣ finished decluttering
♣ finished calendar
♣ planted my butterfly attracting flowers (they’re sprouting already!)
♣ blog weekly updates

and the major goal of the month I completed was:

Spring Cleaning

I finally tackled the dreaded cleaning of springtime!

Bonjour~

I am back from a mini break. I did not go anywhere, just a break from day to day routine and a chance to review the past quarter of the year. Let’s see how many of my goals I managed to colour in!

8 out of 12. Not bad. The spring decorations are ongoing hence the shading. I personally don’t feel inclined to complete the rest of these goals apart from the recipes.

Here’s my new set of goals for the next 3 months. I have a lot more creative goals that I want to pursue this time.

Let’s hope these are all coloured in soon!

Weekly Round-Up March Week 2

I am sitting here with a new member of the plushie family. Meet Eccojams the dolphin:

Only a squid from a charity shoppe!

If you don’t know, I have quite a collection of plushies. There must be at least 20 in my bedroom! If only I can put as much effort into my goals as I do with buying plushies. Ah yes, my weekly goals. This past week was a bit of a slump. So much so that I only done gratitude on 2 days! Yikes. The only thing I really achieved was finishing decluttering. However I did say that was my primary focus for last week, so it wasn’t a complete defeat. The 2 things I am grateful for are hot chocolate and having one peaceful early morning which are very rare. It’s the simple things.

This next week, I hope, is a lot more productive. I am planning on spring cleaning, planting my butterfly flowers, finishing and printing my calendar, illustrating spring decorations and reviewing and writing up my goals for the next quarter of the year, which I will illustrate for this blog.
