January 2017 Wrap-Up

January wasn’t the best or easiest month for me. There were a lot of bad moments during last month. A family member died, and figuring everything out with that was basically a shit show. Harsh but the truth. 

Anyway, looking back at my goals that I had set I can say that I did complete some of them. Im also going to talk about the books I’ve read this month, and the progress I’ve made with my writing. 

January Goals:

1. Post a New Blog Entry 2-3 times a week

I started strong with this at the beginning of the month, but I was not able to follow through entirely. 

2. Become More Active on Social Media

I think that I can say that I completed this. I wasn’t really on instagram, but I was on twitter. A lot. 

3. Finish All of my College Apps

By the end of January this was happily completed to my liking. I managed to get all submitted with the supplemental documents as well. 

4. Stop Drinking Soda

Did this as well! It really has made a difference in how I feel, and I don’t know why I had started drinking it again in the first place. 

5. Be in The Gym 3-5 Days a Week

This was another thing that I started out strong with, but didn’t end up following through. With the death in the family, and my own health problems that decided to pop up it just wasn’t happening. Even now I’m not cleared to do anything besides walk on a treadmill, and I can happily do that at home. 

Books I Read This Month:

Goodreads Links

Playing With Trouble by Joya Ryan
A Vampire’s Christmas Carol by Cynthia Eden
The Breeders (Breeders #1) by Katie French
I read a grand total of three books this past month. That is way below normal for  me, but with everything that was going on it’s something I can understand. The plus side is that I was able to do a full review,here on my blog and on Goodreads, for each book that I completed. 

Something new was that I also joined NetGalley. I have a couple of books out that I’m reading and preparing for review. 

Writing Status:

This whole month I only wrote 4,900 words on one project. Also not good. However I do plan to amp it up this month, and get on the grind.
