Well, I started the month with what felt like four manageable, yet slightly reaching goals. Remember this:
Well, friends, here is my honest progress report.
- “Walk 30 miles. Lofty goal? (I hope not) But I already walked one today, so I only have 29 left to go.”
Well. I hate to disappoint you, but I didn’t meet the goal. Whomp, whomp. I did pretty good though, in that I walked 12 treadmill miles in April. For someone who walked 2.5 miles in March, zero in February, and 7 in January, I think the 13 in April is quite successful.
- Work on some professional goals.
I did wonderful with this goal. I just can’t really speak on the changes quite yet. If we are friends on Facebook, then I’m sure youÂ Â know what is happening, but if not, it will hopefully be revealed here in the very near future.
Actually, I should continue. I know exactly what I had in mind when I wrote this goal on 4/1/14 (the secret above), but I’ve also done some great things with other professional goals too. Spry has just launched the fourth issue. We’ve published some incredible writers and poets and I do hope you’ll check it out. I’ve also done some interviews for Spry and also scheduled a mini-series which will be published between issues. I really rocked it professionally this month.
- Write 35 more small stories/essays.
Nothing happened here. I think a lot of the reason I didn’t get to any of my own writing was that I was hyper-focused on the writing of everyone else (as the editing and publication period for Spry was this month). I did start writing some ideas to work on, but nothing has stuck quite yet.
- Spring clean my entire apartment (and trash or donate what I do not need)
Again, another laughable effort here. My apartment is quite clean, like always, but I didn’t get a chance to power clean. Honestly, I don’t think that this will happen until after the honeymoon, so it looks like this will turn into summer cleaning!
Stay tuned tomorrow for May’s goals!
