My goals for this week continue on from last week. I need to get assignments done for uni, I’m halfway through my book and I really like the Field Notes size for inserts, so I want to make more of them.

  • Complete CCC505 Assignment #1
  • Complete CCC505 Assignment #2
  • Complete CCC501 Assignment #2
  • Prepare College Binders for MA502
  • Design more Field Notes inserts
  • Read Aristotle and Dante discover the Secrets of the Universe
  • Edit The Bravery of the Soldier for contest submission
  • Vote in the Election

Weekly Goals Vol. 21

It’s been a while since I posted my last Weekly Goals. Life’s been pretty hectic in the meantime, and I didn’t get many chances to actually sit down and blog.

But my first year of my M.A. is almost up and I need to focus. So back to the weekly goals list it is.

  • Complete CCC505 Assignment #1
  • Complete CCC501 Assignment #1
  • Prepare College Binders for CCC501, CCC505 & MA502
  • Design Field Notes inserts
  • Design Midori inserts
  • Read Aristotle and Dante discover the Secrets of the Universe

You’ll notice I am no longer doing supplement courses. It all got too stressful, and I need to focus on my studies. I’m not about to ruin my A+ average grade for non-credit online courses. I’ve realised I need to slow down and prepare properly. And I also want a bit of time each day just for myself, to sit somewhere with a coffee or tea, and read a book for a while.

My Midori Traveler’s Notebook – all ready to go!

A while back, I posted about contemplating whether I should splurge on a Midori Traveler’s Notebook. You see, I always have a notebook on me, if not two or more. So a nice leather-bound one sounded perfect to this stationery lover.

I ordered it, and got it in early June. But it wasn’t quite ready yet – I wanted to customise it a bit, make it mine.  But now it’s finally ready and about to go on its first trip with me. You’ve seen me put goals every week of designing templates – well, let me give you a walk-through and show you some of my DIY inserts.

This is my Midori Traveler’s Notebook set-up:

Weekly Goals Vol. 20

Right then. Super-squeaky-bum time has started. I have to finish course MA500 by July 31, and I’m hoping to complete most of CCC505 by then as well.

Plus, my supplement courses. But I’m away next weekend (not this coming one), so I really need to cram. But my birthday is now behind me, the flat is clean, and I won’t be baking any time soon, so there’s hope. I stocked up on coffee and juice, I’ve got loads of cookies and teacakes left over – I can do this. Hopefully without distractions.

Here’s my weekly to-do list, as part of ROW80:

Weekly Goals Vol. 19

Here we go again with another set of weekly goals to achieve.

It’s gonna be another ridiculously busy week, but I get to relax and party over the weekend as it’s my birthday on Saturday. But before I can have guests over I still have loads to do, so I’m trying to spread it out over the week so I don’t have to do everything in one go.

The list below is what I really need to get done, and it’s already a long list. I haven’t even mentioned all the modules that don’t have strict deadlines. Should I find the time to complete some of those as well, I’ll tell you in the ROW80 Update on Sunday!

Here’s my list:

Weekly Goal Tally Vol. 18

I hang my head in shame.

I had planned to get so much done this week and then life and family got in the way, yet again. However, I have now drawn up a monthly schedule, which I will hand to my mother as well, so that there’s no excuse for disturbing me until the end of the month when I say “I need to study.”

If I can stick to next week’s plan despite losing the entire weekend. Well, for a piano concert and my birthday – one party with friends and one with family – so it’s a perfect reason not to do anything, but still, it’s technically time I need.

From tomorrow onwards I’ll be participating in Round 3 of A Round Of Words In 80 Days. Although once again I won’t use the time to actually write stories. But I like the focus and community ROW80 provides.

Anyway, here’s how I did this week:
