How do people, like, deal with people? I hate whoever came up with giving gifts at Christmas. It could be somewhat enjoyable if it weren’t for the whole greedy ass people who want multiple gifts. And some people don’t even see a problem with this whole charade. UGH?! It’s nauseating. The whole damn thing.
Okay, had to get all that out. Now I’m better. Work is going uh, I wish I knew. We now have a computer monitoring everything we do. But the computer isn’t exactly accurate so, I have no idea how I’m doing. I look at the report, and it’s like a language I don’t understand. I think I have a meeting with my manager within 2 weeks, so I’ll know for sure then. I guess if I’m doing horrible, she’ll email me before then.
I’m working overtime this weekend. I haven’t worked on the old system in a month. I hope things go smoothly.
I have big goals for 2019. Well, most I’m starting now except the first one listed. I’m taking a course on using tarot to help with goals and it so SO GOOD. As of right now, my top goals are:
- Pay off 25% of my credit card debt by January 1, 2020
- Learn tarot “by heart” so I can do live, online readings by the end of April
- finish the astrology course by the end of February
- Get 30 people on my email list by the end of April (hopefully more)
- Decide whether I want to do tarot and/or astrology anymore by June
- Lose 20 pounds by April
- Get to goal at my day job by mid- December 2018
I will probably have more goals, but I like the idea of fewer goals. I have to break down each goal, of course. I already have a plan for the debt. Once I pay off most of my debt, I’m going to start saving for a downpayment on my dream house. That probably won’t happen until 3 years from now.
Unfortunately, to accomplish these goals, I’m going to have to change things. No shit! The number 1 thing I’m sad about is reading fewer books. I will probably try to read one book a month. That means no more hoarding library books. 😦 I might try listening to audiobooks more. Not sure.
I’m also going to have to exercise more. I don’t have a problem exercising when it’s warm. I do have access to my mom’s treadmill, but since my dad is living here, I don’t feel comfortable using it. I don’t know when he’s sleeping and blah, blah, blah. I was planning on doing Kundalini yoga twice a month starting in January. I will probably still do it. However, that kind of yoga isn’t much of a calorie burner. It’s great for my spirit, but not for losing weight. Hmmm, I have to come up with something. Just wait for my dad to leave in 6 weeks or so? Maybe.
That’s enough for now. I may do an updated list of goals, but I doubt it. I think that’s final.
Oh, I almost forgot to mention my landlord got my letter about me moving. He left me a voice message. He said he was sad to see me go. I always paid my rent early and I never complained (lol). What I’m terrified about is the walkthrough. Why do I have to? *whine* The main issue (and maybe only issue) is the water. But that might be huge to him. FUCK. Sorry.
This week I…
Music of the week (my top 8 most listened to): Missy Higgins, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, Halsey, Jason Mraz, Ariana Grande, Florence + the Machine, Lauren Daigle
I probably will only do a top 5 albums of 2018. Not a top 18 or 20 list. So much good music was released this year. Anyway, an album I’m rediscovering is Christina’s album. I didn’t love the first two singles so I kind of slept on the album, but songs have been coming up on randomly when I listen to all my music and this week I finally decided to give the album another chance. It’s so much better than I thought.
TV of the week: basketball, House of Cards, Survivor
I canceled Hulu so I don’t get to finish binge-watching Nashville. Bummer. I was on the last season and was really enjoying it. I finished watching Making a Murderer season two. I don’t have a ton of thoughts. I can see why people still believe Avery may be innocent. I do think one of his family member’s had something to do with the murder AND I think Avery knew after the fact.
Movie of the week: None
Podcasts of the week: True Crime Garage, Pod Save America, So You Wanna Be a Witch, Sword and Scale, The Lively Show, Why is This Happening?
Books of the week: Now reading –
- Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness by Susannah Cahalan
Yep, I’m already cutting down my reading list.
Plans for the weekend: Working OT on Saturday. I’m going grocery shopping on Sunday. I’m working on breaking down my goals for the year. I need to work on a PDF or mini eBook for my email list. I should be doing that now. I want to release it by mid-December. I have 2 pages done. It needs to be 13-14 pages.
Thanks for reading. Have an excellent weekend! 🙂
