A month has gone by (or a month and almost a half) and 2018 is well under way. I did take some time to reflect on the month. I don’t think I’ve done too badly this first month, but there is always room for improvement.
Progress Report for January
Check point: Personal Goals
Looking over the five goals I set for the year, I could do a little better.
What’s been done so far:
- I started listening to Russian vocabulary on my way to work.
- I wrote at least three entries.
- I started to review the family names I already have information on.
- I sent out at least six letters, reconnecting with some of my pen pals.
What I still need do:
- Cross-stitching has been on hold while my elbow heals (I have tennis elbow but it’s getting better).
So, a rocky start on yearly goals but it’s coming along.
Check point: Academics
While my personal goals are off to a rocky start, academics has been coming along.
- The last week of January had me working on three research papers one after another. Two for Medieval Philosophy and one for Ancient Rome. I managed to get high marks for all three so as challenging as it was I’m glad it came out well.
- I registered for the next round of classes: France in the Enlightenment Age, Enlightenment Philosophy, and The British Empire.
- I’ve been invited to be a member the Society for Collegiate and Leadership Association because I’ve maintained at least a 3.0 GPA.
Moving into February I hope to improve upon what I’ve started. I think the key to that is finding a rhythm between work and school.
On to February!
