October 1, so time to check in on my goals:
1. Take at least one overseas trip.
This is happening! Reservations and plans have been made. We're headed to London this month.
2. Read 30 books.
Big progress here. Last month I was at 16, this month I'm at 19, with two more in progress.
3. Get to a healthy size.
Nothing good to report here. I went to the doctor this week, and learned that I am a .3 away from an obese BMI. Yay.
4. Save $500/month.
Negative progress. My savings account is being quickly depleted by my current underemployment. There isn't a whole lot I can do about it right now, though, so I'm just hoping to get this back on track once I get a more stable job.
5. Give 5%.
Still more or less on track.
6. Start retirement savings.
No change. The account is open, but not yet funded for 2010, and I don't know if it will be.
7. Join something.
8. Write a novel.
No progress and a a complete lack of desire. Maybe NaNoWriMo will inspire me in November.
9. Create something.
Honestly, I don't even know what this means at this point.
10. Remember birthdays and send cards.
I know I sent at lease one in September. Hopefully that means I'm getting back in my groove.
Things aren't looking great, are they?
