2018 Affirmations Progress and Art Discoveries

Welcome back, everyone. Thank you for your continued support. It means a lot to me.

A while back, I posted some goals for 2018. Now’s the time I give you a progress report on how I’ve done.


  • Get Into Cosmetology School
    • This goal has been basically abandoned. I thought for a while that it was my way out of a situation I felt trapped in. At the moment, I’m finding that it in fact isn’t.
  • Publish Two Books
    • I’m nowhere closer to this goal than I was at the beginning of the year. Between personal issues and private problems, I just haven’t been able to put in the work necessary for this goal.
  • Get My Weight Down to 135 lbs.
    • I am proud to say that I weigh 129.7 now! I definitely succeeded in this goal.
  • Keep Up With The House
    • I had to have a really bad wake up call in July, but now I’ve got it under my belt a lot more. I think I can keep up on it, with a little help.
  • Read Twelve Books
    • I have read Damn Fine Story, and that’s all. I am in the middle of reading about four books though.
  • Daily Affirmations
    • Yet another goal I have not even come close to completing.
  • Call The Boyfriend Weekly
    • Well, since we broke up, this one doesn’t matter anymore.
  • Daily Exercise for Thirty Minutes
    • I do yoga maybe three times a week, at 5am. It’s a hell of an hour to be awake, but it’s better than nothing.
  • Post On the Blog Biweekly
    • I have failed at this horribly. My apologies, guys. I dropped the ball on this one.
  • Post A Youtube Video Biweekly
    • My youtube channel where you can watch Live Write-Ins, Dramatic Readings, and Various Vlogs, has grown a little. But I haven’t been as dependable as I wanted to be.

Now, time for First Quarter Goals:

  • Publish a Book (failed)
  • Lose 10 lbs (Completed)
  • Keep up with the chores (Completed)
  • Daily exercise (half-failed)
  • Daily Affirmations (failed)
  • Read Three Books (failed)
  • Write Six Blogposts (failed)
  • Film Six or more Youtube Videos (Failed)
  • Call boyfriend Twelve Times (irrelevant)

Since we’re in the third quarter, I think I’m going to make a list of goals:

  • Publish a book
  • Keep up with chores
  • Daily exercise
  • Daily affirmations
  • Read three books
  • Write six blogposts
  • Film Six or more youtube vids
  • Do self-care at least once a day
  • Draft a good cover for the WIP I’m working on

After all, This:

Is not the best I can do. I’ve done better. I’ve been better before.

This is what I want to get back to, and surpass:

In closing, I’d just like to ask you to be patient with me, and enjoy the ride.
