* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

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.

Hmm, we seem to have really stalled this season and this thread seems to be in a coma at the moment.  

Since we're nearly at the end of the season, I'll pose the obvious question: Is there any interest in continuing this for another season?

 
I would definitely like to try next season! This past season would be a bummer to go out on.

Given that I only found this thread midseason....I'd like to give it a go next season.  :)
You can also find my ramblings at my blog although I\'m not the best at regular updates.  I\'m working on fixing that. Or look for me on FB here or Google+ here. :)

4. Set up a permanent Brighid altar. -- Failed.
5. Purchase the laptop for school. Completed!
6. Begin working through Evolutionary Witchcraft. -- Marking this as failed. I started to really get into it, but now any urge I had is completely gone. Same thing happened last summer, too. Wtf?
7. Practice tarot. -- Failed.

Final roundup. What a sucky season!


01. Finish coursework. (Seriously, this has to get done.)
FAIL - I did make progress, but I didn't finish.

02. Get a transcription job.
FAIL - Since I need to finish my coursework first, this is an obvious failure.

03. Read 2 books off the Religious shelf and post notes/thoughts on blog.
FAIL - I still haven't finished the reread of Greek Religion.

04. Read 2 books off the Fiction shelf & 2 from the Non-Fiction shelf.
SUCCESS! - That feels nice to write, at least once!

05. Learn how to ride the damn bike.
FAIL - I will try again in the spring.

06. Finish 2 crafted pieces.
SUCCESS! - I made a beaded bracelet and a crocheted scarf!

07. Photograph pots for etsy.
FAIL - Well, they made it out of my trunk- only after the car died.

08. Write, damnit. (1k a month would be great.)
FAIL - I wrote, like...1,200 words total.

09. Develop habit of weekday exercise.
FAIL - I started out well, and then came to a screeching halt after Epic Cleaning Week.

10. Figure out what the hell I'm doing wrong wrt religious cycle and fix it.
SUCCESS! - I'm calling this one a win! I figured out what was wrong, and have made strong steps to getting it working properly.


Total Goals: 10
Completed: 3
Failed: 7
 
Blah. I hope next season will go better! Speaking of which, I need to finish my list...

A quick run-down of how this thread works:
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.

 
I don't think I ever updated after the move to the new forum.  Oops.

Soul
1. Acquire and read Trance-Portation. Fail.
2. Begin meditation practice -- aim for 20 minutes at least 3 days a week, consistently.  Focus on visualization.  Epic fail.

Mind
1. Straight A's for the summer semester.  So far, so good.  Term doesn't end until mid-August, though.  Done!
2. A solid start towards the same for the fall semester. Done!
3. I think this goes under mind for the resistance of temptation: Make my Coffee Crisp bites last until I see my boyfriend again in August. Done!  I even had most of a bag left.

Body
1. Re-develop the daily multivitamin habit. I'm re-writing this after the fact to be daily multivitamin or an Ensure.  Close enough, and the Ensure helps with the hypoglycemia.  That means that I am pretty close to accomplishing this.  Done.
2. Manage my hypoglycemia better.  Vague goals suck.  I think I am doing better, though.  Call it done.

Wallet
1. Get a part-time job that fits into my school schedule and doesn't keep me from fulfilling Body #2. Fail.
2. Find and sell the damn engagement ring.  Fail-- it wasn't where I thought it was, and I haven't found it anywhere else yet, either.

Home
1. Cull books and video games until the survivors all fit into currently available shelf space.  Donate or sell the rest. Epic fail-- the first batch of books is still sitting in my trunk.


2. Save up to replace the cot with a proper bed that will not give me lower back problems.  If I'm careful about my selection, a futon may be acceptable.  L's wooden-slat futon was decently comfortable, but my old one with metal bars/tubing spaced too far apart was pretty awful.  I'm going to buy a loft bed when my financial aid gets disbursed this weekend, but it still doesn't count as done this season. Fail.


Final Count:  
5 goals accomplished
6 goals failed
11 goals total

Next season is all about wedding planning!  Also, more school.

Yep, it's time to carve pumpkins, bob for apples, and bemoan the coming of winter.
