If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Life's To Do List - 2011 Season 3
« on: July 02, 2011, 09:16:59 pm »
A quick run-down of how this thread works:
  • Post your list of goals to be accomplished during the season (Summer in the Northern Hemisphere, Winter in the Southern).  Please either number your list or post a running total of the number of goals made and completed.
  • Periodically post updates and progress reports on this thread.  
  • I'll try to give progress updates for the group every week or two.
  • The fun ends on the last day of the season, when we'll start a new thread and whole new lists.


This thread started on the SMF board: Life's To Do List - 2011 Season 3.  If you've posted your list there, please post any new updates here.

Here's my list:

1. Go out for a walk at least three times a week. Preferably for a minimum of half an hour. --Going out for a walk tomorrow, for sure. 0/3 this week.
2. Finish reading Portrait of a Priestess before I have to take it back to the library. --Started, but really need to buckle down.
3. Start and complete at least one art piece by the end of the season. --Haven't started yet.
4. Set up a permanent Brighid altar. --Haven't started yet.
5. Purchase the laptop for school. --Haven't started yet.
6. Begin working through Evolutionary Witchcraft. --Set up a daily, weekly, and do-it-once list for myself based on the book. Going well so far!
7. Practice tarot. --Set up a tentative post on Tumblr asking if anyone's interested in being my tarot guinea pig. :D Got a couple replies back. Woo!

If you've posted your list there, please post any new updates here.



01. Finish coursework. (Seriously, this has to get done.)
I have 1,940 pages to go. Maybe posting my page count here will help keep me accountable!

02. Get a transcription job.

03. Read 2 books off the Religious shelf and post notes/thoughts on blog.

04. Read 2 books off the Fiction shelf & 2 from the Non-Fiction shelf.
I'm currently rereading The Callahan Chronicles by Spider Robinson.

05. Learn how to ride the damn bike.

06. Finish 2 beaded pieces.
I'm 20 rows into a purple and pink bracelet. Only 110-ish left to go!

07. Photograph pots for etsy.

08. Write, damnit. (1k a month would be great.)
I'll be at Camp NaNo for July! :) I have no idea what I'm writing or how much I'll get done, but I'm going to try, damnit.

09. Develop habit of weekday exercise.
The exercise bike came home yesterday! I did 30 minutes on level 2 and sweat my ass off. One day down, the rest of the month to go...

10. Figure out what the hell I'm doing wrong wrt religious cycle and fix it.
I think my problem was twofold: one, overthinking it and two, trying to jump in full blast. I've simplified and I'm going to be adding one day each cycle, so this cycle I do two of the days, and then next I do three, etcetera. It'll probably take me the whole season to see if it works, but oh well.

This thread started on the SMF board: Life's To Do List - 2011 Season 3.  If you've posted your list there, please post any new updates here.

Porting my list over with updates...  I haven't been updating because there isn't much to say except "uh, working on it..."
 
1.  Prepare Nia for a second draft.  This doesn't mean writing a second draft, or even beginning a second draft--just getting to a point where I feel like I'm ready to do that next.  I mean, this thing is really a mess.  (Probably season 4 will involve actually writing it.  I hope.)

Current status:  I may have to revise this.  I've been doing a lot of overtime, and one side effect of that is that my writing time is gone until at least August.  That's a significant portion of the season, and I don't know whether I'll be able to make this work or not.  Not sure what to revise it to, though.

2.  Read The Mindful Way Through Depression (recommended to me as being good for stress relief too) and evaluate further goals for mental/emotional well-being based on the suggestions contained therein.  (Or, if I decide it's unhelpful, come up with other such goals on my own.)

Current status:  Slow going, because:  reading time is also limited, see above.  I'm trying to read a little every day, though.  It's interesting so far, but I'm having trouble getting my head around some of it.  But then that's why there's a whole book and not just a few paragraphs, right?  :)

3.  Finish knitting pseudo-project.  (I started just to get a feel for knitting, with nothing in particular in mind; I think it's becoming a scarf.  Maybe a shortish one.  Maybe it's for Natalie?)

Current status:  Still knitting...  Trying to do a little each night when I'm winding down with some TV.  Sometimes that works out and sometimes it doesn't.

First proper update on the new board! Not much progress, sadly...


01. Finish coursework. (Seriously, this has to get done.)
I have 1,940 pages to go. This week was really bad for sick- slept really poorly most of the week, along with a sore throat and foggy head. :/

02. Get a transcription job.

03. Read 2 books off the Religious shelf and post notes/thoughts on blog.

04. Read 2 books off the Fiction shelf & 2 from the Non-Fiction shelf.
I'm giving up on The Callahan Chronicles. I did read From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E L Konigsburg. So I'm 1 of 2 for fiction, 0 of 2 for non.

05. Learn how to ride the damn bike.

06. Finish 2 beaded pieces.
I'm 48 rows into the purple/pink bracelet.

07. Photograph pots for etsy.

08. Write, damnit. (1k a month would be great.)
Camp NaNo - July is looking to be a miserable failure, as usual, but that's okay. I have written 727 words since the beginning of the month, which is better than nothing!

09. Develop habit of weekday exercise.
I've worked out 5 of the past 7 days- yesterday and the day before I was just too damn fogged over to sit up on the bike!

10. Figure out what the hell I'm doing wrong wrt religious cycle and fix it.
I think my problem was twofold: one, overthinking it and two, trying to jump in full blast. I've simplified and I'm going to be adding one day each cycle.

That's 727 more words than I've put down.  I think Camp is going to be a no-go for me this year.
