I can’t believe we’re already halfway through October. I feel like I just celebrated my birthday and in a blink, it’s a whole month later and I’ve gotten nothing done. I have never posted any monthly goals here but maybe doing so will make me more accountable and I will actually get something accomplished.
So here are my October Goals…
Buy New Work Shoes. Seriously y’all… mine are coming unglued. I bought these shoes when I started my last job 2 years ago. I think I’m due for some new ones. These will not make it through the holidays.
Design our Christmas Cards. I know it’s only October… but I always end up trying to get Christmas cards figured out far too late. I want to at least design the actual cards themselves this month.
Holiday Shopping. I need to get a couple of things for Jeremy and my best friend Keegan. I’d also like to figure out what I am going to get my boss and my manager this year. As for everyone else, I think I’ll be making something – not sure what yet.
Apply for School. I recently came across a Gemological Institute of America Inc. (GIA) pamphlet. I’ve been looking for classes to take that have something to do with my job – but anything I could find involved me going out of state for weeks to even months. GIA offers certification online and the first several classes I want to take are actually pretty affordable at about $250/each. I can swing that and I’m crazy excited about it. I need to apply by the end of the month in order to start next year.
How early do you start your holiday preparation? I feel like I never get everything finished…
