My Goals for March

Time for a new slice of curious life!

Yes, in my quest to be the most interesting person in the world (or at least in my own household), I have a new category that I am going to add to this blog: ACHIEVEMENTS!
And no, I don’t mean like recognition from other people for all the hard work I’ve done over the years——pffftt, can’t even finish that sentence without laughing. I mean, like, personal achievements, goals met, that sort of thing. You play Xbox, yes? Yes? So you know I’m talking about Xbox Achievements, right? Right?

Here, have a Wikipedia article to get you up to speed: click here! And here’s a quote from said page! Look here:

“In video gaming parlance, an achievement, also sometimes known as a trophy, badge, award, stamp, medal or challenge, is a meta-goal defined outside of a game’s parameters. Unlike the systems of quests or levels that usually define the goals of a video game and have a direct effect on further gameplay, the management of achievements usually takes place outside the confines of the game environment and architecture.[1] Meeting the fulfillment conditions, and receiving recognition of fulfillment by the game, is referred to as unlocking the achievement.”

Yeah, that’s what I’m talking about. And man, do I really love that definition. Meta-goals defined outside of a game’s parameters… These goals that I am hoping to achieve are like playing Life outside of the normal daily quests. What are daily quests? Hoo boy…maybe I should put a gaming tag on this…For example, my usual daily “quests” are as follows: brush the dog, dress the child, make dinner, do the dishes, etc. It’s like the normal upkeep for normal living, or something like that.

But these achievements are meant to be something more. Something not entirely necessary to life, but that will enhance it! So without further ado:
My March Achievements *insert big dramatic orchestra music here*:

1) Finish  my online Mindfulness Course
2) Throw a dinosaur birthday party for my daughter
3) Join the April A-Z Blogging Challenge
4) Commit to and make a cabin for Camp Nano
5) Become a better dog owner (start the 30 Days to a Well-Mannered Dog book)
6) Finish taking notes on my Library Books
7) Do Story Sketches 3 times a week.

As you can see, it’s a rather varied list, but trust me, I narrowed it down from even more ridiculous things. And I will make sure and keep this blog updated with my progress, don’t you worry. And I’ll explain a little bit about the topics as I get to them…whoo, commitment, yeah! But for now, it’s just enough to just make the goals. I mean, achievements. Stick to your own words, Christine…

What achievements are you setting for yourself this month? Or have you reached them already, you glorious over-achiever-type cool person? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to support you/gaze jealously at you from afar!

  1. Now I feel like a total slacker…my only goal this month is to actually get out of the bed and write the dumb blog daily…….lol oh, and eat. yeah, I need to eat three times a day instead of forgetting all the time. so I guess I have two goals now. Felling better for having read your blog now. Thanks!

  2. I was intrigued by the April A to Z blogging challenge and looked it up. It will certainly be a challenge for me but I have decided to go for it! I spent the last hour figuring out how to put the badge on my sidebar. Perseverance paid off and I succeeded with only a few swear words. (I got the basic concept but it took me many tries to find the right code to paste. I needed a “paste this” in the directions!)

    1. Haha, that’s why I’ve been putting off signing it up – I don’t want to do the work on the blog! But glad to see someone else signing up; I’ll use that as motivation to get my ass moving! 🙂

      1. Geez, is there more I have to do? Writing that many posts will be challenging enough, and forget having a “theme”.
        P.S. The html text for the badge is in a teeny box under the badge on the right hand side. Just to save you some time 🙂

        1. Ha, not that much, but I want to update my blog a bit before I sign up. Make it all shiny, like I know what I’m doing, lol. And I will not be attempting a theme either, no thank you, I will just be pleased if I make it through the alphabet. Thanks for the tip on the html, I would’ve spent waaaay too much time looking for it!

  3. Very nice blog post and writing style. I don’t really go in for goals. Recently I’ve been trying this thing where I focus more on the process, and the actual doing of the “goals” rather than setting a deadline. The theory is that goals can create stress and you end up focusing on just getting the goal done, rather than the actual process. But that’s me. I think your list of goals is lovely, and I wish you the best of luck in them!

    1. Y’know truthfully, I go back and forth on it. Sometimes I feel like setting goals and working towards something specific, and sometimes I’m like ‘Eff this, I do what I want!’ and then get things done spontaneously. But I really struggle with time management and keeping my attention focused, so I’m back on the Goal-Setting Time of Year apparently. Focusing on the process sounds interesting though, and I’ll have to give it some thought. Thank you for the comment and the luck, I ‘ll save it for when I’m feeling lazy (like, probably this afternoon!).
