Another Year, Another Goal Review

Well friends, here we are in another new year. Another new decade even! 2019 was such a mixed-up crazy time, I still don’t quite know how to feel about it. So much of it surprised me. I talked about some of those surprises in my State of the Jenn update, both good and bad. But some of the most unexpected things are the ones that I only see in hindsight. In 2019 I learned so much. I did so many things I’ve wanted to do for a long time. I even started writing poetry again! ^-^

I could really go on forever, I have so many feelings about 2019. For now though, let’s just take a look at how I did with my set goals from last year. Did I manage anything surprising? I think so!

Goal Review 2019 Edition!

Considering that I’m writing this around the end of February, I feel it’s definitely lost all semblance of a “New Year’s” goal review… But, I’m going to post it anyway! ^-^ Not having enough time to get it out in January though, does feel a bit ominous. haha

The truth is I’ve just been very busy with a new job. Yay! I quit my old job, the one that was slowly killing me, in June last year. Or rather, I was kinda forced to quit because I started getting really dizzy at work. Felt like my body giving me a sign that we were DONE. heh I had about a month of basically doing nothing but sleeping, but I feel a lot better now!

With my new job, I’ve switched from food service/retail to office assistant. No more fighting for nights and weekends! ^-^ There are, however, a lot of new things to learn. It’s a completely new knowledge base and I really knew nothing I needed to when I first started. I feel like I’m doing pretty well so far, but it does take a ton of energy. Worth it.

Despite all of this, I have been working steadily on my writing! ^-^ One of the best things about 2018 was definitely the writing group that I joined. I’ve learned so much, and made some friends as well. I definitely plan to keep going.

Whew, that was a bit more a rambling over-view than normal! So, let’s see how I did with my goals from last year…

Goal Review Season

It seems I am posting these year-end goal reviews later and later every year. XD As long as they’re in January, they still count, right?

2017 was a lot like 2016: not a lot happened on the blog, but I kept at my writing as much as I could. I also dealt with a lot of depression, and what I’ve recently realized was serious burnout and fatigue from my job. I started taking steps to try and work on that around the end of the year, and managed to get my writing groove back a bit. I have a feeling I failed most of my goals… but honestly, I’m going to forgive myself for that and move forward.

With that said, let’s see how everything stacks up from last year. ^-^ Continue reading

It’s 2017 And I’m Still Alive…

This is about the best thing I can say right now.

My last post was in July of last year, ugh. Honestly, I always get hit by this weird malaise in the summer; and since I didn’t feel like I had a lot to talk about, there didn’t seem to be a reason to keep fighting it. I’m usually myself again when the cold starts to creep back in October, so I figured I’d get back to posting then. I underestimated how much the anniversary of my friend’s death, in October, was going to affect me.

And then November happened…

I’m glad to say that even though I haven’t been able to sit down and write a post for the blog, I have been working on my other writing. At a snail’s pace sometimes, but working nonetheless. ^-^ So, even though it’s way past New Year’s at this point, I’m going to go ahead and do my usual goal review anyhow.

I had kind of a long list for 2016. Let’s see how I did!

A new year of challenges and goals!

Obviously a little late out of the gate with this post, but Happy New Year to all! ^-^ I hope it has been good so far.

So 2014 is definitely over. It dragged its feet in a couple of places, but for the most part it went by really fast. I can’t say I’m sad to see it go. I did get a lot accomplished, but the last few months have been really difficult for me. So I am looking forward to (hopefully!) a change of pace and a happier Jenn in the new year. Not to mention the extra writing time that comes with the mall being dead post-Christmas! ^-^

Looking back for a moment, here’s a quick list of last year’s goals and how I did with them: Continue reading
