I seem to be dreadful at being ready to go with my Monthly Wishes at the beginning of the month; once again, it’s the second week of the month, but I’m here now! For those that don’t know, the idea of having a round up of goals for the month (or week!) belongs to Melyssa from the Nectar Collective. It’s nice to actually think about what I really want to achieve in a month, and be held accountable (in a nice, supportive way!) by the other bloggers in the link up.
I, as usual, had a hit-and-miss success rate with last months goals! I have been applying for heaps of jobs, but other than a day spent doing personality tests and basic literary/maths tests for one possible job, I haven’t heard anything back. Personally, I think spending five hours filling out those little circles on multiple choice tests indicates that I’m patient enough to handle anything! I’m crossing my fingers that I’ll get a call this week, telling me I’ve made it to the next round. As far as study goes, I feel really unsure as to what direction I need to take, which makes me very indecisive about what I should be studying…
With that in mind, here’s what I’m planning;
1. EDITORIAL CALENDAR – Once again, I’ve been dreadful sticking to my post plan; in fact, I’ve been awful about posting in general! Coming up with ideas for posts isn’t my problem, but getting on a writing roll is tricky. So, I’ll be trying to stick with it a little better this month! Stay tuned for some posts for the Blog of Erised’s Mental Health Awareness Month coming up this week, and next!
2. ETSY SHOP – I’m super excited that my shiny new camera has arrived, and I’ve been busily photographing all of my creations. I hope to be launch-ready by July, in time for the new financial year, so I need to spend the next few weeks working out shipping profiles, uploading and editing images, and making everything all pretty! Keep your eyes peeled for the launch, while I nervously wait and see whether anybody even notices me in a sea of Etsy greatness.
3. READ! I go through phases where I read a book a day, then weeks where I don’t have the energy at night to concentrate on a novel. However, my ‘to read’ pile is so huge that it’s taking over my room, and I have some really great novels lined up to review, so I need to get back into the swing of things this month!
I also have an enormous TO DO list that never seems to get any shorter. I’m sure you know the type – those lists that stay the same length no matter how much you get done, because for every one item you cross off you seem to add another two! With any luck, I’ll be having a productive month, and will actually be able to see the wood for the trees by the end of it!
