I made some relatively easy goals for October. However, setting goals is easy. Following up on them- not so much.
So my goals for October were:
1. Do my research.
Well, I did get all my notes typed up (all 100+ pages) and I’ve read a few new articles. However, I haven’t met with my advisor, I haven’t really done much IMO. Grade: D
2. Keep up on Statistics reading and work
Yeah, no. Just didn’t happen. I get the broad concepts, but the formulas, etc just make me batty. And I’m 2 weeks behind on the labs. Grade: F
3. Workout 3-4 times a week.
Well I did make sure I got at least 3 walks/workouts in each week. They weren’t really super awesome or anything. I did spend several days in agony with a headache and then a UTI, so there was that, but that is no excuse for not working out harder. I’m grading myself a B- b/c I did actually DO what I said I would, but I know I could be better.
4. Enjoy my birthday.
Yeah, that didn’t happen either. I had a terrible headache all night/day of my birthday, made it through halfway of my lecture, and then headed home to bed. I didn’t go out or do anything special, which was fine. I just didn’t feel well enough. Steph did make me a nice dinner that weekend so that was nice, but the birthday day, just sucked. And it didn’t help that I got NO help from neuro #7 afterward. Grade: D
I hope that whatever goals I set for November I can actually STICK to them. Perhaps I will post them to my mirror so that they are visible. Might make it easier to stick to if I know what I am sticking to! 🙂
