Reveiwing MY 2019 GOALS


I'm reviewing goals posted on the blog nearly a year ago just to see how far I've come. I also did a quarter one review if you are interested see it here https://dabwrites.blogspot.com/2019/03/2019-goals-quarter-1-january-march.html

But these were the goals I posted on the 6th of January.

2019 GOALS

1. Get a new role - this is urgent and top priority 

I got my role so that is one I cross off.

2. Publish Leyton and Angelica's story

This is still outstanding and if you've followed my editing journey, you'll know it's been a very rocky road.

3. Do at least three CPD - for career development - I was a bit lax last year because my employer supplied them.

 These are Continuous Professional Development which I need to keep up my skills. I probably have but not in formal way like going to for courses and things.

4. Romance? Maybe. We'll see. I had one in 2017 - not so good. But maybe again.

I decided in the first quarter reveiw not to post too much information about this.

5. Lose another 5-6kg so about 13-15lb. I'm currently 79kg which is roughly about 174 pounds. So I'm looking at becoming about 160 pounds.

It didn't happen for a number of reasons and I'm also slightly heavier.

6. Revise all my creative writing courses exercises & grammar

Yes, that is on-going...

7. If I'm good, maybe treat myself with another writing course.

Well, still did. I did two editing courses, Holly Liste - How to Edit Your Novel which I found wasn't for me, and the Faber one which is still going on.

8. Explore other creative avenues open to me.

Yes, I recently joined a choir and we had two flash mob choir performances.

9. Complete 20 books in my goodreads authors account, and probably 12 in my normal joe-blogs reader's  - no duplicating.

No, I've read a lot of books this year but some I added on to my goodreads, others I didn't bother. 



Overall, not to bad since the most important was achieved with was getting a new role!

Daily Writing Journal: Mo Money Challenge - week 8 which means £8 in the tin!

£8 in coins So I'm on my second week on saving and still not sure. I'm not feeling the pinch per se, but it's hard thinking how am I going to maintain this. So I managed to get a few coins out and gather some change, but at some point I'll really need to organise this. I've put in four fifty pence pieces with come up to two pounds sterling and the rest in pound coins.  Remember the money tin from last week. Well it all went inside that.... How am I feeling? Slightly bored but I still have a long way to go..... Saving money is boring, spending is more interesting.

Weekly update. Verdict on Check It movie, lack of black male role models and normal boring stuff. Oh and I'm still fat.

Hello everyone! So new focus. Yes, I never know what to write about. Never know what’s interesting so I’m just going to write for myself…if that makes sense. There are slew of blogs trying to change the world, radicalise the world, and revolutionise the world so I’m not doing that here. Not am I going to think - oh will people find this interesting or boring. To be frank, I’m a pretty boring person but hey ho let me write.  I’m thinking of changing my gym. Well right now I’m a member of Virgin Active Health Club which styles itself as a life style gym, and to be honest the only thing I use is the hot tub, sauna and steam room. In the three years I’ve been a member, I’ve only been in the gym about ten times, gone for two classes - they are always fully book so I only really just use the hydro-pool/spa, and steam room. I’m a member of the Islington Angel branch which is were all the posh liberals are.  This is a picture of the spa, and pool. The pool can be a bit chill at times.
