This month I managed to tick off a couple of long term goals, which is always a pleasure. I’m coming into the final stretch with this project – all the stuff I have left to do has been left for a reason – but I’m hoping I’m going to find some final motivation to get it finished in time.
Completed Goals: 6
41. Make packed lunches for
Chris and I myself every day for a month
My original goal included my boyfriend at the time, since I made this list in 2009 (gosh how long ago that feels now!). I modified it this year and have just completed 30 days in a row of bringing my own food to work. I’ve saved a lot of money and I’m probably eating a little healthier because of it. However, I am looking forward to my next Burger King A LOT. Nom.
63. See at least two live bands
I finally got to see Elbow live and they were incredible. So now I can tick this off and never have to go and see another gig again. Yay!
77. Use Tesco’s online more
We live in a flat above a shopping centre, so getting Tesco’s to deliver to us has sometimes been problematic, heh. Most of the time tho it works okay and I am definitely better at not picking up pork pies and ferrero rocher when I’m not actually in the supermarket. Score.
89. Try and pay off one of my credit cards
I am going to count this as done because I’ve actually paid off about half of my debt from the original £14,000 I had when I started this list. I’ve moved the money around a lot, but I’ve definitely paid some off. So take that, Virgin Money, you bunch of utter fuck muppets. I beat your system, now fuck off and die*. Thx!
50. Pay off my car
Yay! It took three years but I finally paid off my car. & then promptly sold it about two weeks later because I don’t need a car in Cardiff and we only have one parking space anyway. But I still paid it off!
93. Have a work girly night
Technically it wasn’t with the work girls, but since I like my friends more than the people I work with, having a girly night with them was much more fun.
Total completed: 63/101
Days remaining: 183
*Virgin Money are now on the list. Along with Darren Aronovsky and Danny Boyle for making films that gave me nightmares and Zurich Car Insurance for being tossers.
