So I’m back to the blog – and before I write anything else, let me alert you that this here post will make more sense if you’ve seen that there one first.
July seems like a crazy long time ago! But if you know me, you know I had to check back in on the aforementioned goals before closing out the year.
Remember, 2 out of my 10 goals for 2015 had already been completed by July 2nd: returning to Haïti with Third World Awareness for their 2015 trip, and being a model in the Carnival Nationz band launch.
1 out of the remaining 8 goals was already a Nope, since I did not make it to Las Vegas in May.
Now, what about the remaining 7?
I said I would book and complete at least 6 singing gigs this year; I’d done a handful by July 2nd, but 1 of them was unpaid; by now I’ve done 6 paid engagements.
Out of the 4 acting gigs I decided to book and complete this year, 1 was completed by the midway point . . . and although I’ve had auditions and callbacks since then, I haven’t actually booked any others. (Yet.)
How about those lofty financial goals? Will I celebrate my birthday by having zero remaining debt and playing mas in Trinidad Carnival? HELL YEAH!!! I’m officially debt-free, having eliminated more than $21,000 worth of debt in just under 3 years; I’ve already bought my plane ticket and I’m playing mas too! Stay tuned to my Instagram account for nufffff pictures…
My trip to New York? My friends bailed on me and I didn’t go.
My road trip? I didn’t organize anything in time; but there’s always next year.
My reintroduction into the world of dating? Well yeah, actually, that did happen. Next question =)
Re-qualifying for the first promotion of my network marketing business? Nope, I didn’t hit that goal. Keep nudging me for 2016, okay?
The final tally? 5 out of 10 of my 2015 goals were completed in 2015.
I’m not sure if that’s good or bad . . . if I got a 50% grade on any course I took I’d be furious about it . . . but then again, the point of personal goal-setting is to go big or go home. Right?
Anyway, time to take a look at the year ahead and figure out what I’ll be getting up to next.
… unless I manage to complete another one in the next 5 days … hey, anything’s possible!
