Unlike with my Reading Goals, I don’t feel as though I have earned the Bare Minimum Star with regards to my Writing Goals. Over the last six weeks, I have been working reduced hours (two shifts a week) and taking care of my Dad for the rest of the week. I thought, as I had more time, it might be possible to be more creatively productive, however, I was just too tired/drained to be creative.

Other Miscellaneous Goals I Failed At:

~Crafting Project: During this Quarter, I had intended to revisit knitting and/or crocheting, however, I just don’t think I have the mental capacity right now. Especially since my partner and I are in the process of renovating our house and moving items into storage. The House Project should be the priority right now.

~Daily Journal Entry: I will be honest, I have been super bad at journal entries, however, recently I have been improving. I definitely want to get better at this. I think it’s just a matter of building the right routine around this particular habit.

~Instagram: During this Quarter, I had intended to set up an Ambiguous Pieces Instagram page, I’ve managed to set up the Ambiguous Pieces page, however, I haven’t gotten around to posting up images. I’m fairly certain I’ll be able to complete this particular goal during this Quarter instead.

~YouTube Channel: This Quarter I meant to shut down my existing YouTube Channel, however, I didn’t get around to doing it. The thing is that I want to set up my home office first (the place where I’m going to be filming/recording).

Common Advice given to New YouTubers is that you don’t need a designated studio or super expensive lights (and this is true), however, I have tried the DIY approach and it’s just not working. So, it’s back to the drawing board, I just wish it was easier to figure out what my particular magic formula was.
