October's Goals

Well another month is about to start, so it's about time I set my goals for the month, so here they are:

  1. Purchase textbooks (for the cheapest price possible) for session 2 of my fall semester graduate school classes;
  2. Mail off passport renewal application (or do it online...just get it done!);
  3. Put aside money to purchase tickets to see Tina Turner in concert when she comes to town later this fall--I would be doing good if I were half as cool as her when I'm her age :- );
  4. Sign up for Zipcar - only if pricing is reasonable;
  5. Price local young professional and/or networking organizations and choose one to join this fall;
  6. Wake up earlier and get to work earlier. Use these earlier starts to be more productive;
  7. Exercise on a weekly basis.
So how did I do on September's goals?
  1. Exercise on a weekly basis - PASS - I did not exercise as much as I should have, but some exercise is better than none at all right?
  2. Write down/track spending on a weekly basis - PASS - I did track my weekly spending in an excel spreadsheet but can't say I cut spending this month. I still have to compare it to Yodlee to see how it matched up.
  3. Wake up an hour early at least twice a week to do reading. - FAIL...I did get my reading done, just not in the early morning hours.
  4. Purchase a file cabinet. - FAIL...I'm going to hold off on this goal, I want to see if I can find a used file cabinet (Craig's List?) before purchasing a new one.
  5. Attend the next ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Funds’ Meet Up event. - FAIL - one of these days I'll make it...
  6. Sign up for Zipcar to run my weekend errands and start using my driver's license for more than just photo ID. - FAIL...I'll try again in October.
  7. Make comments or ask a question during every class meeting for my grad school course. It’s a good habit to develop in my graduate courses and participation is apart of my grade anyway. - PASS!
I feel like October is going to be a great month, so long summer, hello fall!
