So instead of scratching my head and trying to come up with just one more thing, I decided to make a wordle of all of the titles I used the past month:
|I've got a bigger version of this saved on my facebook page|
Of course, since it is the last day of the month, we should look back on my May goals and see how I did. To be perfectly honest, I usually write out my monthly goals and forget about them, so let's see if I succeeded despite that.
Goal 1 was to do more writing--freelance and overall. I've certainly done more blogging, as evidenced by the blogathon, but alas, I did no freelance writing. The system at the company I work for is such that you login and pick from a huge list of titles. Lately, there hasn't been much that I could write about in that list. I did login and look, but I probably wasn't as tenacious as I could have been.
Goal 2 was to stay on budget. Except for clothes (again) and gas (not my fault) I've done well this month. My income has dipped slightly, so I need to remain vigilant!
Goal 3 was to shift my focus to my new retirement account. I've done pretty well in that regard. I've saved nearly $300 so far, and I adjusted my direct deposit to automatically put 15% in that account. I'm nowhere near reaching the $5000/year max out, but I really don't have a spare $5000 lying around, so I'm just going to do my best. Slow and steady...
How did everyone else do on their goals for the month of May?
