Goals: Week of 8 February 2016

Hello fabulous readers of my blog!

I just tried recording this, but it seems the microphone turned itself off in my pocket. That’s okay, Minnie and Daisy and I are on our afternoon walk. It is Super Bowl Sunday, so Steven is at the nephew’s birthday/Super Bowl party.

I can’t go because I’m sick. I do seem to be on the mend though. I hope… That tickle in my throat from my Saturday turned into a full blown head cold included was becoming a chest cold and threatening bronchitis. Not a big deal, it usually happens with me but because of that I’ve been fighting back taking my expectorant and using my humidifier.

However, because of the head cold, last week, I was not as productive as I would have liked. It makes it really hard to read when your head is pounding and your eyes just want to shut because you want to go back to bed.

I did read six articles for school which is a win. Just not as much as I would’ve liked. I went swimming once and went to the gym twice. Would’ve gone a third time for the executive decision was to rest* to get over the stupid cold.

For the most part I did good trying to eat healthy, not so good packing my lunch the day before. Pretty good, with making progress towards most of my goals.

  • For my school goals I set up a meeting — tried to set up a meeting with some the professor for history of the language – We’ll see. It will work out.
  • Met with my professor.
  • Read nine articles towards my proposal.

My personal goals for last week: I went through my workout pants and throughout the ones that Marie Kondo says do not “bring me joy.”

I did okay at turning off my cell phone and computer after 7 PM. Could have done better at that but most days I did turn it all off. (this excludes TV because I can’t get Steven on board with that & the kindle because the kindle’s basically just a book).

I painted and shared a picture.

Magic Map Makers

These guys were inspired by journaling with my fluent self stone skipping card. I came across the question one day of bubbles how can I have more bubbles my life are what do bubble symbolize something like that

on the next day, the question was what do I need more of in my kingdom. And I started journaling practical things and then this idea popped into my head that I needed math makers and so I wrote my makers and then I followed up on the question by trying to determine what our mapmakers. The image I had of the mapmakers, was these little guys in 18th-century maybe 17th-century sort of Italian style clothes. Floating around on bubbles drawing maps of my interior kingdom. So, this last week I painted them.

My personal goals for this week:

(1) make a new painting

(2) fold my workout pants and Marie condo style and put them in the bottom drawer of my dresser

(3) turn off all my electronics after 7 PM

(4) last in practice self-care, so that I kick this cold

(5)  eat real foods. I’d say eat paleo-ish, but I do have planned for my lunches to be eating hummus which isn’t technically Paleo.

Goals for school and teaching:

(1) plan all my classes on Friday.

(2) finish grading by Friday

(3) read 10 articles for school

(4) read chapter on intonation

(5) studying and prep for qualifying exams
