Hi again. Sorry for the brief hiatus, I haven’t been well or myself lately. But I think the fog is clearing now and I’m on the mend (please be on the mend so I can get back to riding my bike!)
Now I’m back I wanted to check in on my September goals and let you know if I managed to fulfill any. Here’s how I got on.
Upload my new hair bows to my Etsy store
Done I’ve got three listed. They’re beautiful:
Start regularly doing Free Art Friday
Nope – I think I’ve got too many creative projects on the go at the moment so I couldn’t get my head around all of them. It’s not a good idea for me to set myself too many creative goals as I end up feeling guilty if I don’t get round to doing them. I’m definitely putting this as one of my October goals.
Get accepted onto a craft fair to sell my bow ties
Done I’m proper buzzing about being part of the Cambridge Etsy Christmas Market in December. I’ll be sharing more info about this shortly. I’m looking forward to making up loads of my bow ties and decorating my table.
Go out exploring more – do at least a 8k walk somewhere I haven’t been before
Done – me and my explorer in crime did a long walk from our house to the next village and managed to forage a few treats on the way. Hope this wasn’t what made me ill…
Catch up with people I haven’t seen for a while
Yes and no. I managed to spend some quality time with friends but I also managed to completely fudge up a meeting with a mate I haven’t seen for a while. I’m going to blame the hairdressers and my stupid old banger of a car. Sorry again if you’re reading this – you know who you are x
Go to a gig in London
Didn’t happen I think I’ve managed to well and truly put myself off of London for a while. I hate the pace and the miserable faces. But I’m keen to fall in love with London again so maybe that’s a post for another day.
Finish a painting I’ve been working on for ages! Or at least start on it again
Nope. I didn’t finish or even start a painting. Another creative project I’ve not been able to initiate but managed to feel all of the guilt about. Stupid art guilt. Nobody liked you.
Sell a lot of my clothes that I haven’t worn in the past two years
They’re all ear marked and ready to either go on Ebay or go to a car boot this Sunday. Please do me a solid weather and don’t rain!
Look after myself and put my happiness first for once
I’ve had no choice but to do this these last two weeks as I’ve felt too ill. But I’m fed up with being selfish and nauseous now; other people need some loving. Especially my Mum who has really looked after me this past week.
Go to an exhibition
Didn’t happen. To be honest, there wasn’t anything I was desperate enough to see which could make me put up with the crap hole capital. However Ai Wei Wei‘s latest exhibition is at the Royal Academy which I would like to go and see.
6/10 isn’t bad. And I’m going to try to not beat myself up about not achieving all ten. Plus I’m kind of trying to be more lenient on myself as I’m still poorly and trying to recover.
How was your September? Did you achieve any big goals?
