Would you look at that? October is almost over and I failed to complete the majority of my goals that I made back in the beginning of the month. Let’s take a look at what I completed and what not:
I reached 1k on Twitter and that I’m very thankful for! Can’t thank you enough and I hope that by following me you aren’t super annoyed by either my lack of tweets or the stupidity of them.
I kind of started planning Blogmas but I still have lots to do till they start.
I tried to be open to new opportunities and this month has been a real rollercoaster. I’m quite happy about the outcome to be truth.
I finished reading a book that I have been putting off for a while now. It was a very interesting read but sometimes I struggled at keeping my full attention to it.
I attended 3/5 events I planned: I ran 5km for Pink Run, I went to see the best adverts by Cannes Lions and I went to see a basketball game.
I failed at engaging more on all social media. I neglected Pinterest and Facebook a lot.
I forgot to finish Advertise and Disclaimer pages. I swear I need to stop being so lazy and just get on with it.
I didn’t start driving lesson and I actually made a decision to start them in spring. No going back then.
I didn’t make a vision board and I am not happy about that. I feel like it’s one of the reasons why I don’t feel motivated enough.
I think the facts speak for themselves and I cannot say that I’ve been doing much work to reach my goals. This time decided to be a bit more realistic and make only a few main goals so that I could focus more on them. If I’ll manage to complete all of them and maybe few additional tasks, then I’ll be more than happy with myself. Let’s a look at what I’m aiming for this month!
Prepare for Blogmas | I need to admit that I all I have done so far for Blogmas is written down ideas for Blogmas, nothing else. That isn’t so good since we are only a month away from the begging of it. I need to step up my game and start writing down, taking photos or I’ll be regretting not doing it in the beginning of December.
Write at least 1 post per week | Look how a productivity of mine has fallen. I was posting 3 times a week and now I am miserably failing at producing at least 1 post. I can’t blame uni anymore as I am perfectly aware that I could have found time to write posts in the evenings or at night. It has been hard for me to adapt back to not having as much free time as I got used to. I’ll try to start setting priorities and spending less time on things that aren’t so important.
Read at least one book | This sounds extremely stupid but I’ve been slacking in book reading like hell. I managed to finish the book last month and I’m quite proud of that. Now I am trying to get back into my normal a book a week routine. Wish me luck!
Set up Goodreads account | I like testing myself for sure… I will try my hardest to do this but no promises. I think that it could help me to keep track of books I have already read or am planning to read. Seriously, I can’t count how many books I promised myself to read but never did because I forgot. Goodreads, you better fix me.
1st – The River of Souls | This is an annual event in Kaunas when the main pedestrian street in downtown is lined with candles for the evening. This is a way to remember those who passed away, those who we lost and dearly miss. The sign is very beautiful and must see, can’t wait to have a walk there and be surrounded by a wonderful and calming atmosphere. To get a better idea of what I’m talking about, take a look at this video (it’s very short, I promise, only a minute long).
4th – 6th – Trip to Krakow | That’s right, I’m going to Krakow again. This time I’m doing it with one of my best friends who never went abroad. So this is hr first ever trip to another country! How exciting is that?! I can’t wait to have a little escape from daily routine. Plus I had a pretty good deal that I just couldn’t decline. Two-way tickets for 4 euros? I’m in.
25th – Stand-up comedy show | Last time I went and watched a stand-up comedy was this summer and I freaking love these shows. Hopefully, everything will go well and I will attend this show. A little bit of comedy is what I need right now in my life. Not like I’m not entertaining enough…
Whar are you planning to achieve in November?
