No, the title is not meant to be tragic! I’ve just noticed how I strike more and more things on my to-do list, and every goal reached is a journey that ends. The end of a road. Thinking about how it’s only March, I’m actually quite proud of myself, and how that I can keep this up for the rest of the year, as some goals will surely take quite a long time to be completed still. So yeah, this is a post about my goals, and nothing really interesting, haha.
I think I mentioned it in an earlier post, but I finished chapter 3 of my story earlier this month, which was one of the things I wanted to do before the end of the month, so that’s nice. I’ve already started chapter 4, and it’s going along smoothly. It’s one of the good things about taking your sweet time when thinking about what should happen next. Of course I have a rough idea of the whole thing in my head, but I like to improvise, because the bare skeleton of a story is never enough. That goal went from 3 to 4 this month (including chapter 0).
I’m also done saving for my pen display, so I’ll be ordering one as soon as PayPal decides to give me my money. My plan was to wait until April, but since it’s on sale in the Amazon UK shop, I don’t think it’s a good idea to wait too long. I expect to have it before the month is over, and you’ll never see me again, because I’ll be in another world forever… Okay, no, I just want to draw stuff faster than my old touchscreen laptop can manage, and I can’t wait. Goal will be completed when I’ve got the tablet and know it works.
Few days ago, I leveled Dark Knight to 70 in FFXIV, so this goal is 2/3 done now, which is nice. Leveling tanks always takes me forever, but they are all done now. I’ve started leveling Dragoon, and am already at lvl 65, which is really nice. I’m still catching up on some old stuff, but it’s slowly going forward.
Both reviews and recipes are not really moving forward right now, sadly. I do watch Dame x Prince, but it’s on-going, so I can’t just binge watch everything at once. I also have some recipes ready for printing, but the printer is almost out of ink soon, as I’m working hard on my printables. It’s not like I’m behind on either of these goals though, so I’m relaxed.
My sub-goals aren’t that important, as they are just goals I’ve set in case that I need a break from my main goals of this year. I have written a second chapter of my short story though, and of course I’m still reading Dante, which I expect to finish this month.
My brainfarts on the other hand are almost done, hoorray! These goals were for fun, and I will probably add more if I can think of something I’d like to do. I barely just uploaded my first to-do planner design, so that one is done. The smiley set is something that I might not want to do after all, as I can’t seem to find an up to date plugin for WP that supports your own emojis, and I’m not sure if changing the codes is going to work, as I’ve read some bad stuff about it. The floating GIF was already done a while ago, and Crafty February was a success.
Overall, I’m very happy with what I’ve achieved so far, and I hope that I can keep this up for the rest of the year. Then I will surely complete all goals I’ve set my mind to, and maybe even more 🙂
