April Goals

. Friday, 13 April 2018 .

I honestly cannot believe that not only is it already April, but also Autumn! I can't even begin to tell you how many miserable Summer days I had wishing for the change in season to come around faster but now that it's happened... has it always been cold?! Several people at work have started wearing winter coats! In fact, I'm writing about the hottest winter coats coming our way soon for one of my favourite shopping malls so I'll be sure to link that once it's done. 

Is it just me or does it feel like we've been running around in circles, like headless chickens, just going around and around with no clear direction in mind? That's certainly how it feels like here. The past few months have been chaotic, especially March! I had a big event where I was key note speaking and travelled all the way to Hamilton for it. Then promptly realised I left ALL my notes in Auckland! Amateur hour, but also queen procrastinator just winged it! And it was the most fun I've ever had in my public speaking career so far. Anyway, the point is, is that life has been crazy busy and the next few weeks feel like they will be even more. What I need is a clearer plan of what I want to do this month. None of this aimless wanderings anymore.

I've set some big goals for myself earlier this year and to be quite honest feel like I've barely made a dent on achieving them! So thought today I'd talk about my monthly goals, purely for me to keep myself accountable. The procrastinator in me said I'd get serious about the things I want to do after Easter and the time has come!

But can we quickly talk about Easter and how absolutely nice it was to have family around (the Wellington fam and Brisbane fam flew over for 4 days of hanging out and eating. BLISS)!? Also this:



(can we just take a moment to appreciate these Easter-themed cocktails?! Dane and I went up to my fave Attica Bar after work before the break especially for these and they were delicious!)


Now back to goals... April feels like a reset and fresh start so I think I'm going to ease myself into it and start with just a few:

01. Stick to a writing schedule and write everyday - especially when I'm feeling uninspired or tired! Especially then. I've picked up a few more writing articles to do alongside my monthly columns for various places but I'd actually love to do more work on the web series and my novel.
02. Storyboard and develop pilot for the webseries - this includes casting, forming the rest of the crew, location scout, and timelines!
03. Get rid of stuff - my flat has so much stuff still, despite me getting rid of half of them already! So I want to do an audit of everything in my little flat - room, bathroom, studio - assess and give away things no longer serving me.

04. Routines. Routines. Routines - do them, especially my morning and evening ones!

05. Eat better - as in make my own meals, actually have breakfast in the morning, and keep drinking water!

Let's see how we go, shall we? I'll report back, don't worry. Wish me luck. I most definitely do need it x
