January Report Card

It's true that I didn't set very difficult resolutions this month, but I'm still very proud of what I've accomplished. Not only did I complete every goal, I even exceeded two of the three! I do believe that this calls for a celebration. I don't know what kind of celebration yet, but there will probably be a lot of jumping up and down, saying: "I did it, I did it, I did it!" And perhaps some Mandalorian-style dancing.


Write At Least 2,013 Words

I'm proud to say that I was able to do this twice this month as far as my novel goes.  Not only that, but I also wrote several 350 word devotions for a devotional book called Peer-To-Peer, a devotional book that's written by teens for teens.  It was a great experience, and I can't wait to see my writing actually in print!  To put it simply, this resolution was a great success. 

Grade: A+


Learn At Least Two New Songs

Considering the fact that this resolution was kind of shoved to the back burner this month, I'm pretty happy with the progress I've made. I wouldn't say that I can play these new songs perfectly, but it's been going well. The sheet music hasn't gone flying across the room, so that's always a good sign.

Grade: B+


Read At Least 5 Books

This was pretty easy this month, as I read some pretty great books. The Scarlet Pimpernel was a worthwhile read, as were Curse of the Spider King and Venom and Song. Sadly, the novelization of Baldur's Gate was pretty pitiful, but it also made me appreciate the game more. 

Nothing like the game at all.

Grade: A+


Overall Grade: A


January was a good month.  Even though it's hard to believe that it's over already, I can look back and know that I accomplished some good things. 

How did your resolutions go this month?

  1. Wow! Nice work on your goals! That's so neat that you got to write some devotionals to be published!

  2. Coongrats on doing so well this month! I really like your goal of writing 2,013 words! That is a very cool idea.

    1. Thank you, Shelby. Having an odd number to strive for brought it to mind more often, so it worked out pretty well.
