Goal Updates 3/21
1. Read at least one new book a month
This month has been filled with mostly class time so my reading has been used up on reading my textbook. My book for the month has been Adobe Illustrator CS6 Classroom in a Book. It comes with a cd that includes files to work on that are labeled per chapter to help you along with each of the lessons in the book. It has been a great help in gaining my skills in Illustrator and I would recommend it to anyone interested in learning to use the program.
2. Make $800 in side hustle income by May 1st
I have a feeling I’m going to have to extend the deadline for this one. I have started earning some additional income and been able to tuck it away in savings but not at the rate I was hoping for. My earnings have come from tutoring, blog consulting and affiliate income. I’m hoping to be up and selling on eBay or Craigslist soon as well. I have a storage unit full of things that I could probably do without.
3. Work out at least 3 days a week
I haven’t been able to get in 3 workouts at the gym but I have been doing some workouts throughout my day to keep me in decent shape and not put on any weight. School is finally over this week so I will be going back full force starting this weekend into next week. I’ve found a routine that I’m going to try out on Bodybuilding.com.
4. Eat breakfast at home and bring my lunch to work every day
I have finally had some success in this goal. I was sick quite a bit last week and missed some work so I was able to eat at home for my lunch and breakfast thanks to that but I also remembered to prepare a few lunches and took my breakfast most mornings. My waistline appreciates the diligent efforts
5. Blog at least 4 days a week
This has been a pretty sad week for 20 Something Syndrome. I’ve been overwhelmed with school and some personal issues and haven’t been much in the mood to talk to people much less blog. I’m getting in better sorts though and hope with the coming weeks things will just continue to get better.
No Spend Challenge
As far as going out to eat goes I’ve been doing pretty great. Not shopping has proven to be the challenge though. I’ve had some events and car troubles come up that have had me dipping into savings, noooo!
