2016 Goals: August Update

See January, February, March, April, May, June, and July.

1. Go to bed/wake up earlier.
I was doing fine with this while I was away.

2. Make dinner 3x/week
If microwave stuff counts…

3. Keep living space clean.
Not so terrible.

4. Live off salary and save freelance income.
I was able to pretty much do this except for some shopping, which I think was deserved. :)

5. Save $1000.
I have $1000 now, but I wouldn’t say it’s exactly in savings. I’d want an additional $1000.

6. Then get a secured credit card.

7. Finish dissertation by end of July/Finish draft of middle-grade novel by December.
I did NOT do this and will have to revisit this goal.

I actually seem to have forgotten to make a goal for July, and August is almost over, so…
