Saturdays I review what I’ve accomplished or not accomplished through out the week. Did I meet the goals I set in my Focus post on Monday? Did I regress? Let’s see what grade I got this week.
Well, I failed majorly this week. I did not go to the gym once. I didn’t touch a box. When I got home from work, I made dinner and watched Netflix. Every. Single. Day. My lazy side got the best of me. I did dishes once this week. So now, my apartment is a mess and I feel like a fat slob. Today I’m going to spend some xmas/birthday money at Target (I have gift cards) and see if I can’t get some cheap shelves for movies and books.
I did a little too much spending this month. Looking at my bank account, I have just enough to cover rent and fill up my gas tank till my next pay check. Sigh. I really need to get better at this stuff. I did finish my taxes this week. Both federal and state, so that’s some money that will be coming my way…eventually. I’m thinking I might need to find some part-time work. Or maybe just whore myself out freelance-style more. I don’t particularly like doing freelance work, though.
Don’t get me wrong, I love graphic design. But when I’ve had freelance gigs in the past, they’ve drained me. I used up all my creative juices way too fast doing graphic design all day at work and then all night with freelance. I would get burned out. I’d like to do just something else a couple nights a week to earn some extra money. However, I remember when I worked full time at an agency then worked nights at a retail chain. I about died. All I did was work. When I’d get home, I was good for nothing. Oh well, I’ll think of something.
Anyway, here’s some pics of how my place is looking right now:
GRADE: F – yup, a big, fat fail. Oh well. There’s always next week.
