Make a Plan

Monthly Goals | June

May 31, 2015 | No comments



(✔) WORK: I wrote over 2000 words on my dissertation, finished the lab bin inventory, and is almost ready to send the draft manuscript to my co-authors, but I didn’t work on my funding application.
(✔) FINANCE: I mostly followed my budget, but splurged on a couple of things, submitted my travel grant paperwork, and made a payment on my student loan.
(✘) HOME: I didn’t sort through my closet, or get new curtains, but I did work in the garden (once).
(✔) HEALTH: I only went to the gym 4 out of 10 times, but I walked over 125 km, ate more vegetables and fruit, and got back into logging all my meals.
(✔) FUN: We went to the cinema, I participated in the Bout of Books read-a-thon, had a wonderful Eurovision party, but didn’t finish my crochet project.
