March Recap // April Goals

Oh, look, slashes. I’m so fancy. Slashes // and brackets {}. 

Welcome to my blog! If this is your first time visiting my blog, hello! March came and went pretty quickly, and I have revised my goals format again. This is a day late, because I was not ready to edit blog posts yesterday, but bear with me.

These posts kinda got long, so I’m just going to go over March, not unlike a bunch of other bloggers with more aesthetic blogs.

March (an overview):

5 books read. Went through a reading slump. Wrote and mostly edited Espionage with Heidi. Posted 10 blog posts. Favorite was this. Accomplished most of the monthly goals. Having a hard time with theater monologue length. Got stomach bug. Felt sickly a lot. Participated in 1st blog tour.  Finished planning two novels. Started some secret blog stuff.

Ta-da! Aesthetic-y. Now, onto my April Goals:

April Goals:

♥Finish Fantasy Gossip and Halfway to Fourteen for Camp NaNoWriMo.

 ♥ Work on final edits and formatting for Espionage.

♥ Eat healthier so I don’t feel sick as often.

♥ Exercise regularly.

♥ Practice monologue and enter the competition with confidence.

♥ Work on self-doubt.

♥ Continue to work for quality over quantity on blog posts.

♥ Make the most out of my free time and make sure I don’t get overwhelmed when I’m busy.

♥ Practice songs that I’m working on in singing lessons

So, I made my list shorter and compacted it into more definite things that I’m more likely to do/need to do. Yay? Yay!

March Goals

Before I begin, let’s go into last months’! I apologize in advance for a long post. I hope you enjoy it all the same.

Things I Did

Begin plotting out Halfway to Fourteen Yes! Still needs some tweaking, but it’s done.

Begin developing other Camp NaNo Novel Fantasy Gossip, yes.

Go for quality over quantity As I only posted like four times and have been developing stuff way in advance, I’d say I did this.

Learn my new ukulele! This turned out very well, I think. I already know guitar, so this wasn’t as hard.

♥Bake a new recipe Twice!

Read more books Not counting today, the 28th, I’ve read 12 books, as opposed to 5 last month.

Survive the greeting card class that I’m teaching I think I only died once!

Things I Sort of Did

Finish reading through Mission: Prodigy, and for bonus points, start on draft two I stopped reading halfway because the plot broke, and I couldn’t. I did start on draft two, though. Bonus points?

Post all the random drafts I have I worked on some, I think I posted one.

Brainstorm a new writing series I thought of a few ideas, but nothing really stuck out.

Work on my Bloglovin page I tried to fix my image problem. Sort of worked. Sort of didn’t.

Continue to attempt to practice my instruments more often I sort of did? More often than I usually do, but still not enough.

Be involved in the activities at the new acting workshop I’m going to I literally just meant the monologue competition. There’s like nothing else.

♥Work on writing the play for my school project At the beginning of the month, not so much at the end.

Things I Didn’t do

Finish Dragon’s Fire *sigh* I knew this wouldn’t get done anyway.

Work on the collab novel with Heidi Nope.

Make fair projects Except for Winterfare, none.

♥Get in the habit of using my bullet journal Just a few times this month.

Take more pictures Nope.

Print out more pictures Not this either.

♥Do at least one thing on the bucket list I made with my friend I knew we couldn’t do it anyway. But I will see her this weekend, so….

♥Read my Bible every day There’s been so much going on, and it’s so easy to forget. Especially when we excuse it with “I went to church”.

So, I’m pretty happy with most of that. Onto March’s!
