Monthly Check-In: April 2017

· The one where I get real about my goals. ·

Monthly Check-In is a regular feature wherein I'll probably be snarky about what I did and didn't do during the month...and set lofty goals to make up for it.

April was a shit month. Seems like I’ve had a lot of those lately.

At the end of March, I said I would:

  • Editing–complete all scheduled MSs–> two done, one almost done.
  • Writing–write 5K every day–> ha. No.
  • Work–pre-schedule and have IEPs written & have grading up-to-date for progress reports w/o staying late–> #winning
  • Self-care–massage twice per month–> #winning

What I learned: I really think I could’ve managed to get everything done and get in my 5k/day if I hadn’t had medical shit going on and an asshat of a doctor that was actually listening to me.

In May, here’s what I want to accomplish:

  • Editing: complete all MSs received (up to four)
  • Writing: write new words every day. Finish July release, write August release (both novellas…if I can write short).
  • Work: Keep up with the IEP plan and the grading plan, start prepping a little more ahead.
  • Self-care: Massage 2x/month. Self-advocate for health management. Journal daily. Be present.

See what everyone else has on their lists!

    It’s really hard to stay on top of things when your body (and your doctor) are basically fighting you. I’m hoping that May is a much better month for you!

    It’s hella hard to get stuff done with health stuff is bearing down–doubly so when your doc isn’t listening. But you still got things accomplished, even if it wasn’t quite what you wanted. 🙂 Here’s to an awesome May!

    I think you did amazing especially since you were attempting to teach in the middle of all this. So you deserve a standing ovation. I totally understand how hard it is to teach and get anything else done.
