July goals check-in


  • 10 projects. I turned a lip gloss into a pencil! I’ll write a post about this.

2.5/10 = 25%


  • Save $2500.

1950/2500 = 78%

  • Pay down credit card #2. Woo! Paid $900 on the second card this month.

$3248 this year.


  • Drink 64 oz. of water a day. Less good this month. Lotsa coffee, though!
  • Drink less soda. Really good!
  • Lose 45 lbs. uuugargasdjbf


  • Reduce procrastination. I did ok on this during July. There’s just such a flood of things at work that I’m working hard to keep up with it all, and some emails are sifting to the bottom of the pile.
  • Do one thing each month that makes my life easier. I unsubscribed from all the daily deal sites and other inbox-clutterers that I never even read. It’s so nice! Why did I not do this before?
  • Connect with people more. I Skyped with Chicago folks, and knitted on G+ with a friend who just moved to Portland. We should probably Skype!


  • Go to a museum. 


  • Pay off Kia car loan. 

1211/1211 = 100%

  • Pay off one credit card.  So I’m working on credit card #2.

701/701 = 100%

  • Budget/raise.
  • Read 20 books: I haven’t finished a single book this month. I’ve actually been going to stuff and have been juggling freelance work as well.
