Monthly update: August 2018

It’s August and… it’s way too hot. Seriously. You have no idea how much I’m looking forward to Monday, when this heat wave is supposed to break.

Anyway, let’s talk about other things. More specifically, let’s talk about the reason for this post: My monthly update. Sure, it’s a week later than usual, but that’s better than not providing one at all, right?

Well, in my mind it is, at least. So I’m going to go ahead and launch right into things by looking back at July.

Monthly update: July 2018

Happy Canada Day, everyone! And, in a few days, Happy Fourth of July to my American visitors!

I don’t know about you, but I’m happy to say my June didn’t speed by quite as quickly as the months before it did. It still passed more quickly than I would have liked, but I was able to take some time to slow down and enjoy it.

And, of course, I was able to take some time to work toward accomplishing my goals for the month. Now that it’s July, it’s time to look back on them and set some new ones.

Monthly update: June 2018

June. How did it get to be June already?

Things have been… well. They’ve somehow managed to be both busy and not busy for me. April and May both kicked my butt a little bit, and I started slacking. My writing routine and good habits kind of went out the window. I got a fair bit done photo-business-wise, but very little done writing- and blog-wise. Which, actually, you may have noticed. I posted less in May, and missed my Monthly Update altogether.

That’s where things stand going into June: I didn’t meet my goals for the last two months, barely even set any in May to begin with, and my regular routine is on pretty shaky ground.

Can you guess what I’m going to work on this month?

Monthly update: April 2018

It’s April! It’s spring! Or it should be, anyway. Maybe it is where you are. It almost was here, then the temperature dropped back down to the -20 C range. I’m hoping we’ll get back up to spring temperatures soon, though.

Anyway, it being April means it’s time to look back on March and reassess a few goals. Overall, I’m pretty happy with how my month went, though I am disappointed in my lack of progress in one area. I know what I need to do to improve, though, and I have big plans for April.

Before we get into that, though, let’s take a look back on March.

Monthly update: March 2018

March is here! Time to march forward into a new month and new goals!

Okay, yes, that was a bad pun. I’m allowed to make one every now and then, though. Right? No? Well, it’s already been made, and I can’t promise I won’t make another one. So we’re all just going to have to live with it.

Anyway, it’s March, which means it’s almost spring. Or perhaps it’s already spring where you live, in which case you have a good portion of my jealousy.

It being March also means it’s time for me to lay out for you my newest set of monthly goals. Before I do that, though, let’s take a look back at how I did in February.
