July was crazy with moving, so in August I’m hoping to relax… and by that, I mean streaming more. I really enjoy it, so I’m adding additional days to my calendar for streaming. I also built some structure around it, so each day I’m streaming has a relative theme. I’ll get into what that is when I go over the goals for the month.
The new apartment is great. I’m still getting used to it. Having my own office/streaming room is exactly what I needed. Not to mention it’s easier to let Pixie outside whenever she needs to go, and there’s natural light throughout the apartment. So, I think I’m going to be good here for another few years. At least that’s the plan. Stay in this apartment until I can afford to get my own house. Which is not for years down the road. And I have other things I seriously need to do before I can start putting money aside for that. Mainly, my teeth. I’m not going to start tackling that this month but likely next month.
- Stream 3-4 times a week (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday). I managed to do this on weeks where I wasn’t in the middle of moving for the most part.
- Read 4-6 physical books. I read 4 physical books, but I also read 14 digital ones. So, a good reading month overall.
- Pack up and move to the new apartment. Done! I’m all moved into my new apartment, I only have two boxes left to unpack but I need something to put them in as I found myself short a junk drawer. Which was basically Pixie’s drawer for all her things.
- Finish writing book. I did not manage to complete this. I did write a bunch, but changed my mind and got rid of almost everything I wrote this last month.
- Purchase nothing that’s not groceries or necessary for the move. I basically did this. There were a few purchases after the move including bookcases and some lights, but I still would say I did good on not getting anything extra.
- Blog everyday. Yeah… this didn’t happen. I got way too busy with moving to actually complete this.
August 2021 Goals
- Stream 4-5 times a week:
- Tuesday: Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild or Plague Tales: Innocence (rotating between the two games).
- Thursday: Throwback Games (right now that’s Dragon Age: Origins)
- Friday: Just Chatting (Write With Me) Streams
- Saturday: Community Choice Day (I’ll run polls in Discord to see what everyone wants to see on that stream).
- Sunday: Style Choice (Body Painting or Art)
- Read 4-6 physical books.
- Reach 90K words in my book I’m writing.
- Blog at least twice a week.
- Get lamps for rest of new apartment and some type of storage unit for Pixie’s things.
- (Potential) Finish furnurishing apartment, awaiting arrival of couch and dining set, but I don’t know if those for sure are going to be coming in this month. They’re supposed to but I haven’t gotten any updates on if they are coming yet.
