I started the third draft! And I’ve rewritten the first chapter, hopefully, fingers crossed, for the last time. That has been my biggest goal for this year, and I’m so happy that I’ve finally started it. Last night, as I was waiting to drift to sleep I was planning the second chapter.
My poetry book that I wrote over the summer about my experience during the summer is all written. I know what my cover will look like. I’m just waiting to get some feedback about which order the poems should go.
Waste book/Journal goal:
The only reason why I have a poetry book and started the third draft is my waste book. This notebook is the best thing ever. I pick it up, and I scribble down whatever. When I used to go on holiday, I would bring such a huge quantity of notebooks and pens and pencils, things to draw with and write with. Now, I bring my waste book and one pen. And that’s all I need.
I’m nearly finished my bullet journal, and I’m starting a new one in the New Year. You can go on to my Instagram page and have a look at the newest setup on my current bullet journal and how my new bullet journal is turning out. My goal for my bullet journal is to incorporate both my professional and personal life in it.
I have read 21 out of the 24 books for the 2019s reading challenge. I went on a Terry Pratchett binge and caught up on my challenge. You can keep track of my reading challenge on my Goodreads page.
I joined the gym, and I try to go twice a week. I hurt my ankle, so I’ve slowed down on doing anything that aggravates it even more. I’m still running when I can, between 5 km to 7 km depending on how I feel as I am running. And of course, I’m still cycling to and fro work every day, sometimes twice a day.
I tried to read a bit of my book every morning, which you can also follow on my Goodreads page. I keep the values in my heart and go about my day in a more mindful way.
I have 30% to complete on my TESOL certificate. I had plenty of time over the summer to really work on it. I’ve stopped working on it at the moment because I prefer working on it in my holidays.
I’m very happy with my year. I’ve done so many things that I’m proud of. We visited Ireland! And it was the most incredible visit ever, and I cannot wait to go back. I met so many amazing people that I’ve known all my life and that I could truly appreciate on this visit. I will try to do an end of year goal summary, and also start thinking of next year’s goals. Even though I wasn’t amazingly up-to-date with this blog and my goals I did manage to work on all of my goals by myself.
