Weekly Update #14

Very Personal

Over the weekend, one of my personal goals became somewhat on the null and void side. Technically, I could still do it, but it's at a point where it would be pointless to do so. I'm going to have to replace it with a different goal... what, I'm not sure just yet, but hopefully I'll come up with something.

It's not really a bad thing per say that this goal is no longer valid, but I'd be lying if I said it wasn't disappointing.

Do Unto Others
24. Sponsor a kid off an Angel Tree for two Christmases (0/2)

When I made my list, I'd hoped to have a job by now. Even if the bank called me today, said I had a job, and I started tomorrow , by the time I finally got paid, it would be too late to meet the deadline. With all the expenses lately, I couldn't get my sponsored child anything nice anyway... Dollar Store Delights wasn't what I had in mind. :-/

*sighs* I'm not sure what to do about this one. Do I wait until next Christmas and sponsor two kids? Or do I chalk this one up to failure? I dunno... thoughts?

Edit: It was pointed out to me that my dates for my 101 fall so that three Christmases will pass before my deadline. Yay! I still have a chance! It was also suggested to me that if I'm still unable to spend money, in lieu of Angel Tree gifts, I should donate x-amount of time to a charity or shelter during the holiday season. :-) That works, too.

Whoops! I sort of forgot about doing these things. Keep trying Jan! They don't all have to be done as soon as possible. That's why we have 1001 days. :-) I know you can accomplish anything you want.
