So... that's five out of five goals achieved for September! I also bought myself a new laptop as a bit of a birthday treat to myself, as I've been saying for months that I need to, and it's so nice having a computer that does things when I tell it to rather than thinking about it for a week and a half then crashing. I'm hopeful that I'll be able to up my blogging game a little with all the extra time this will give me! I'm also hoping I can make October just as successful as September with these little aims:
• See friends: Like I say, it was really nice to catch up with so many friends in September, so I'm carrying this one over to October! I'm going with the same target of at least two meet-ups with two different friends as that should be achievable - there are a couple of people I have in mind as targets I've not seen for a while!
• Transfer things to my new laptop: As mentioned, I've got myself a lovely shiny new laptop. However, I've been putting off moving things across from my old one, partly due to a fear of slowing it down and partly because I'm laaaazy. I need to have a good sort-through my photos, music and other files, delete the excess, and shift everything else across into nice organised files. I'm dreading this one.
• Throw some more things away: I still have way more stuff than I could possibly need so I'm planning to downsize a little further. My desk (I use the term very loosely as I can't actually access it to use it as a desk, it's basically just storage at the moment) will be my first port of call for this one. I don't even know what's in these heaps!
• Start thinking about Christmas: I really can't be doing with Christmas in October, in fact I usually hate it right up until about the 23rd of December, but I do plan to start thinking about presents a bit earlier this year. I'm thinking a spreadsheet will help me keep organised and also act as an incentive to get myself into gear because man I love me a good colour-coded spreadsheet!
What are your plans for October? Do you like to set yourself monthly goals? What are your tips for achieving your aims? I'd love to hear what you're planning this month!!
