Wrap Up: January 2018

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!
