April Updates and May Goals
After a very quick week, I’m here to let you know how I did with my April goals:
1. Make $250 dollars of side income – Done! I have a pretty sweet side-hustle where I edit papers when I have time. I can work from home, and I can decline work if I’m too busy. It’s probably the best side job ever. In April, I only had a short amount of time to work because I was out of the country for most of the month, but I did make $259.50. I like to set income goals for myself with this job. It really motivates me to work harder and to keep pushing myself to take extra work.
2. Complete residency paperwork – Fail. Big fail. Well, I’ve actually completed a lot of the paperwork, I just haven’t finished the 83459357 online training modules that go with it or actually faxed the paperwork that I have done. Is anyone else completely helpless when it comes to the fax machine? It baffles me how much trouble I have with that damn contraption.
3. Resume training for the triathlon that is coming up soon – You could say that I have resumed my training if you count working out twice in the last two weeks. I could be doing better.
4. Complete a wardrobe inventory – Done! See my post about it here!
5. Sell books to the local used bookstore – Nope. Today though! It is a May 1st goal.
6. Read up on disability insurance – I didn’t get around to this either, so it will get added to my May goals.
1. Make $500 of side income – This will be challenging (because I have several other big commitments this month) but doable. I will need to set aside time every morning to get some work done.
2. Finish the residency paperwork AND the modules – Stepping it up, folks!
3. Set up individual savings accounts for my different savings goals.
4. Create monthly meal plans with grocery lists to use during residency. I’m trying to make my life as organized and easy as possible for internship.
5. Hem the new skirt that I got at the clothing swap.
6. Fill out student loan repayment paperwork.
7. Sell books to the used bookstore.
7. Read up on disability insurance.
