Already, we’re 1/4 way into September, but let’s review August’s results:
- Project 2014: Running – get back to running 15km on a regular basis.
FAIL!: But I know what I am doing wrong and Holy!Goodness! I am determined to work my way back – sensibly and slowly!
- Project 2014: Frugality – buy nothing unnecessary in 2014
ACHIEVED!: I am pretty sure that I bought nothing – really August was kind of a blur.
- Project 2014: Foodz – try a new recipe twice per month AND document it
PARTIALLY ACHIEVED!: New things were tried, documentation was lacking.
- Project 2014: Micro-travel – Go away for (at least) FOUR weekends
PARTIALLY ACHIEVED!: No weekends in August, but only one weekend to go for the FY.
- Project 2014: Education – Diploma of Advanced Manageressing
FAIL!: Pastoral care at my institution touched base with me last week (a mere 9 months after I enrolled). I spoke of my dilemma (ie. I have 3 months to finish and this is not realistic). They are investigating my extension options. If I want this alleged amazing SML opportunity, I think I am going to have to complete this.
- Project 2014: Escape – make plans for getting the heck out of SML
FAIL!: Well, 1 September brought surprises which means this project is now (temporarily) abandoned.
- Project 2014: Try New Things – one new thing per month
ACHIEVED!: Used a pilates reformer machine for the first time
- Project 2014: Romance – do one couple-y/date-y thing per fortnight
FAIL!: No dates
- Project 2014: Watching – watch good film and television regularly
FAIL!: Does footy count? As a fam, we’ve been watching Jonathan Creek (
- Project 2014: Sobriety – don’t drink too much alcohol
FAIL!: Hahahahahaha, no.
- Project 2014: Reading – for every trashy book I read for teh lulz, read something proper
PARTIALLY ACHIEVED!: From the dregs of my most excellent epubs file, I randomly selected Claire Bertschinger: Moving Mountains, it was very worthy, but kind of hard going and I did not have my usual rip through it to the exclusion of all else approach. Fortunately I’ve picked up a few Much Superior things for September.
Can we say totes boring? Fortunately September has already proved a little more interesting.
