2021 Goals Check-In

Since we we are half way through this year, I think now is an excellent time to review my resolutions and see where I am with those goals. I have gone back to my 2021 Resolutions post to see what I put for my goals.

Read 150 Books - Hahahahahahahahah! Ok. That was fun. I think it was February or March when I got so far behind on my reading that I changed my Goodreads goal from 150 to 100 because it stressed me out to see those messages every day telling me I was behind. I am currently 9 books ahead, and I am hoping to get far enough ahead that I can move that goal back to 150 soon.

Complete the PopSugar Reading Challenge - I am actually ahead of the game on this goal. I should have 25 challenges completed, and I'm actually at 30. Not a ton ahead, but still far enough ahead that I am comfortable with my current strategy. At some point I'm going to have to read specific books not on my award reading list to complete that, but that is a future Adrienne problem.

Pay off 2 more Lines of Credit - Well, we paid off the lease on Mike's car, but then we opened another one. I don't think that counts. I've paid off a couple of cards and then we used them again, so I had to pay them off again. It's not going as well as anticipated. I don't actually even know how close any of those balances are to being paid off. Sigh. Better get back on that.

Get a Promotion - This hasn't happened... yet. I currently have 3 applications in and if I don't get ANY of those jobs, I will be truly disheartened. I did, however, get elected Vice-President of Beta Phi Mu International, which is a great resume booster, so maybe someday.

Daily Routines - Ugh. I'm still the worst. I have routines, but they are minimal. I've recently added my Daily Stoic reading to my habit tracker in an attempt to get myself to do it more. It's not even that it is time-consuming or hard. I just don't want to dig it out so I don't. I'm the worst rebel. I even rebel against myself. So okay. This is another thing I need to work on again.

So those are my 5 resolutions. I feel like I'm doing quite well on one, and two more have hope, but the other 2 I definitely need to refocus on.

Did you make any resolutions? How are they going?
