Goals update #13

Time for a seasonal goals update! With daylight savings, the days are lasting longer and I’m happy to actually catch a little bit of sun after work instead of driving home in darkness, it makes me feel more productive already.


Now, for things I wanted to accomplish for winter…

  • Read 6 books a month: So far I’ve been on track to read 70 books this year and currently 8 books ahead of schedule!
  • Visit two Washington State Parks: Grant and I visited one: Olallie State Park! Now that it’s warming up more hopefully we can visit more.
  • Get a job: Check! I now have a full-time job at a marine hardware store and liking it enough, but I’m looking for other more scientific jobs.
  • Explore Seattle: Yes! Every weekend we try to get out. I’ve been to the Woodland Park Zoo, Bainbridge Island, explored Capitol Hill a bit, and the Fremont Sunday street market.
  • Practice Spanish everyday for half an hour: Not quite for half an hour, but I’ve been practicing every day. Currently have a 120+ day streak, which is nothing compared to my brothers’ of several years…
  • Publish ~3 unique posts a month: I’ve been publishing about two unique (e.g. not my usual reading wrap-up, favorite posts, etc.) posts a month and hope to keep it up.

Spring goals

These look eerily similar to my winter goals…

  • Keep up with the reading challenge
  • Visit two Washington State Parks
  • Apply for other jobs
  • Explore Seattle
  • Practice Spanish every day
  • Stretch  or exercise every other day
  • Finally do something with my savings
  • Continue to budget

Next time, I’ll set some summer goals and check in on my 2021 goals!

What are some of your recent goals?

    ALWAYS so great to hear from you! The pandemic has kept most of the seniors at home but restaurants, exercise classes, shopping centers have reopened. I believe the students have suffered the most with virtual learning instead of being in a classroom with friends, other students and a “live” teacher. We still plan to fly to Denver for Finley’s 8th birthday next month. Hope it doesn’t snow!!! (I’m serious).

    Enjoy Seattle and HAVE FUN!

    We Miss You.
