February in Review

February was another one of those crazy busy months! I’m seeing a trend here though, and I’m not expecting life to slow down any time soon. Did I mention that I’m, Lord willing, going to Europe in April? I’m so very excited about that! I can’t wait to share some more about that with y’all! Anyway, back to February, here’s the month in review. 🙂 

1. Write and send 22 snail-mail letters – CHECK I’ve actually sent out more than 22  I’ve sent out more, but I didn’t keep track

Now let’s move on to my daily, weekly and month-long goals: 

I have seven daily goals and eleven weekly goals that stay the same, I’ve kept up with each one of those. In addition, I also chose ten goals each week with a certain number of times I want to do each of those goals. I’ve kept up with those, too. Lastly, I have three weekly goals (that change each week) and three monthly goals (that change each month) and fifteen year-long goals. Here the Month and Weekly goals are: 

Monthly Goals:
1. Pack my room at least 1/2 of the way  =YES
2. Help out with Business Meetings  =YES
3. Have a list of 150 MG blogs = YES

Week One Goals:

2. Find 65 MG blogs = YES
3. Spend quality family time each day = YES

2. Pack van and go to Everglades = YES 
3. Write future blog posts = YES

Week Three Goals:

    Great job with February, Aidyl, especially for one who was away from home so long! 🙂 Monthly goals are great, but I also like how you broke it down into weekly. Kinda helps you focus on a little bit at a time. Good job with the sugar! Except for maybe 5 times, I have been off of sugar for nearly a year. Don't even miss it! 🙂
    My goals for February were mainly to get a lot of writing done, journal and fiction, which has been going better the last week – learn 2 more piano songs – check – learn a song for an upcoming show I'm going to be in – and use my free time more productively. For March, much is the same, with my personal goals being focused on writing, music, managing time, reading and building up my friendships. 🙂

    Great job on accomplishing your goals, Aidyl. You are definitely inspiring. If it wouldn't make your luggage to heavy, I might try and hitch a ride to Europe. 🙂 I hope to one day visit. Especially the UK. I have a fascination with the ancient castles and would love to visit the Scottish Highlands one day. And would love to see Loch Ness. Not necessarily to find out if I could catch a peak at Nessie, but just to see the Loch itself. Where all in Europe do you plan to visit?

    Hi!!! Good job on your goals! I will have to start school in 13 minutes so I am just stopping by saying hi. I am homeschooled and the offical time to start school is 9 am so I have a few minutes to spare.

    Being off sugar so long is great! Way to go, Rebecca! Nice job with the goals. 🙂 Sounds like you've been busy. And I would agree, friendships are something to spend time on!

    This is so great. Lol. Maybe I should make a 21 before 21 list. Except I'm not all that great at doing this kind of thing. 😦
    Question… How do you know how many words you wrote in your journal? Do you actually write in a journal or do you keep a journal on your computer? Lol. Just curious. 🙂
