December 2020 Update

I figured I wouldn't have much for this update, but it looks like I'm actually not doing too bad! I think getting closer to the holidays gives me some extra drive to get stuff done. Let's hope that keeps up and I can get some of these in progress goals actually completed!

In progress:
5. Move out of parents’ house.
Still unfortunately in progress. We have an approved application, but the complex is being very cagey about when we can actually move in.
42. Have 1,000,000 words posted on AO3 (535k/1,000k)
43. Finish crochet hat.
It's I'm gonna say about 75% done. I randomly picked it up in October and got quite a bit done on it!

I read Dracula by Bram Stoker, which I do own a copy of even if I actually listened to an audiobook version lol
64. Try 10 new ingredients I haven't cooked with before (0/10)
I made chocolate chip pumpkin cookies for Thanksgiving. Surprisingly I'd never used canned pumpkin before since my family's not really into pumpkin!

Ok, it's been awhile since I posted an update here. But I didn't forget. I was just too lazy to make an LJ post.

NEWLY COMPLETED:
Join sync academy
syncacademy.syncmymusic.com/ - I've followed Jesse on Youtube for awhile, and he was doing a challenge that I wanted to participate in. You had to pick a goal and stick to it for 60 days. I picked a terrible goal and gave up right away--should have picked something more specific and more relevant to actually making music. The videos were kind of boring and obvious if you're not a total idiot--his Youtube channel is much more engaging and insightful. I did kind of get the reality check that I'm nowhere near the skill level I need to be at to license music, though, so I unjoined. The community is probably the best aspect and worth the money, so I hope to rejoin when I'm a little better.

Glue piggy bank back together
About 2-3 years ago my daughter dropped and broke a piggy bank that I've had since I was a baby, so I scooped up the pieces and stored them in a grocery bag. I finally got around to piecing it back together. There were 4 huge chunks in clean breaks, so it was much easier than anticipated!

Buy Rachel's meal plan
https://www.rachaelattard.com/ - I bought her 3 Steps to Lean Legs program and I love it so much. It took me years to find a fitness routine that worked for my body type and this is it. The fact that she includes a meal plan with easy recipes and plenty of smoothies is a bonus. It's just been really hard to follow lately. I was depressed for awhile, and then I got a job and now I'm just exhausted from work every day.

FAILED:
Create a music blog
I had to meet certain criteria to complete this. I created the blog and one post and decided I do not want to do it at all. There must be another blog concept that will work better for me.

Complete to do list during quarantine
I've kept an old, long to do list for ages. I finally lost it when I created this goal. Therefore, I was unable to complete the goal!

Buy Emily's course
http://www.themillionkisses.org/ - She's a musician who had a limited time course that I was certain I would buy, but I backed out at the last minute and lost the chance.

IN PROGRESS:
See my dayzero page. I'm not in the mood to retype all those notes here.

I think the only new thing I added is Homeschool during the school year. I'm really happy with this, although it's really rough while working full time. Granny graciously offered to help and so I bought a bunch of workbooks to make it easier, even though I had wanted to avoid paper work originally.

October 2020 Update

Again, not much going on. But I'm actually feeling pretty positive about having any forward momentum at all the longer the pandemic goes on. Plus, just working on #5 has been taking up a lot of my time and energy recently. Not every goal can be completed quickly and easily!

Fourth List

5. Move out of parents’ house.
I'm actively working on it! My bff and I have been to one apartment viewing so far, and we've contacted a couple other complexes.
42. Have 1,000,000 words posted on AO3 (520k/1,000k)

Completed:
95. Donate $101 to things other than AO3 (101/101)
It's almost election time, so I've been donating to quite a few political campaigns, among other things. Gotta do what I can to make the US a little less terrible!

August 2020 Update

Well... not a lot going on the past two months unfortunately. Time's been passing so quickly I didn't even realize I'd barely done anything. It's a good inspiration to start paying more attention to what I'm doing and what I want to be doing, I guess!

I actually finished two within a week! One was a bookmark I started probably two years ago that really only needed about half an hour of work. The other was a new project that I designed, based on a tweet.

June 2020 Update

Had a lot of ups and downs the past two months, which I'm sure most ppl can relate to with the... everything in the world rn. But it is nice to see I've worked on and completed (!!) more things than I would have guessed!

Fourth List
Started: May 5, 2019

63. Read 5 books I already own and haven’t read (0/5)

73. Complete 20 Duolingo Spanish lessons (11/20)
79. Complete foundations of yoga videos (18/41)
I've definitely fallen off on doing these as regularly, so I need to get back in the habit this month.
94. Have $500 in investments (191/500)
95. Donate $101 to things other than AO3 (42/101)

Completed:
45. Complete NaPoWriMo.
Did this for April and ended up with over 3k of poetry written, so I'm really pleased :)
80. Meal prep weekly for 3 months (12/12)
I lost track of this exactly, but we've been meal prepping regularly since quarantine, so I'm gonna go ahead and call this one done.

Hey, first update!

My list is a bit sloppy, with some goals too easy (more suited to a to-do list), some too broad, and a lot of deletions* and additions, but I'm working it out.

COMPLETED:
Start an underground fb page
I feel bad about this because I was so excited to begin posting things to it, but I haven't yet because I haven't seen anything new and haven't had a chance to search for them. It's a page for the goth/industrial/electro scene to keep in touch and support one another since musicians, DJs, and venues are hit hard by the coronavirus stay-at-home orders and travel bans.

That's it for today! ^_^

New list for a new phase of life

Hey there. I made my first list in this community almost 10 years ago. I just happened to feel like now was a good time to start another one, since I've had a lot of projects on my mind for awhile but they've all been scattered in my head. And it feels like current events and the situation I've been thrown into are an attempt to propel me forward with them.

My new list is at the Day Zero Project website: https://dayzeroproject.com/user/kuroloki/list/159212

No updates yet since I just wrote it up yesterday, but I'm glad there are still some people in the community to help me stay accountable! The way I usually do this is to leave some blanks at the beginning and fill in new goals as I go, but I have so many that I couldn't even fit them all in on the first day...so with time, any goals that I deem obsolete will just be removed and replaced. Or maybe I'll just go beyond 101 things? If I were good at organizing them by category like some of you do, that would probably help, hah.

April 2020 Update

My fourth list. I'd like to say being confined mostly to the house bc of the coronavirus has made me more productive on goals that can be done from hom, but I'm not sure... But I'm determined to work on it! At least I've set up a couple good habits of language and yoga practice.

73. Complete 20 Duolingo Spanish lessons (7/20)
79. Complete foundations of yoga videos (16/41)
Doing about one of these per week right now, but I'm gonna try to add one or two more a week. That feels especially important right now when I'm not even leaving the house at all.
80. Meal prep weekly for 3 months (2/12)
This is also feeling more important rn with having to minimize grocery runs and grocery stores being low on some ingredients.
94. Have $500 in investments (185/500)
