revisiting: things I want to do

A few weeks ago, I included a past post discussing things I want to do in the future in a list of posts to read to get to know me. I wrote this post when I was in a very dark emotional place, and since I’ve improved in my mental health so drastically over the past few months, I was really interested to read it and see which things I’ve done or have taken steps to do. So today, I am going to revisit that post and check on my progress and take stock of what I’m doing to reach those goals:

  • Get a job I’m passionate about.  I am definitely working toward this. Things at the library have been a lot better for me lately, and I think they will continue to improve with my confidence. I’m also taking steps to get more publishing experience so hopefully someday I can get a part time or remote job in the publishing industry.
  • Marry my bae. Not yet, but eventually.
  • Move to a bigger place. We are in the last year of living at our current place and have started looking at two bedroom places, which will be much easier to afford now that I’m making slightly more and my partner is going to have a full time job soon.
  • Work on my grimoire more. I have not done this and I don’t know why?
  • Get a new car. I did this! I got a new car in December and I love it!
  • Learn ukulele. I have not done this, despite my mother kindly gifting me a ukulele.
  • Write a book. Lol. I have definitely not done this nor taken any steps to do so.
  • Write poetry. Lol. See above.
  • Rescue all the cats. Can’t really do this until I have a big house to store all the kitties.
  • Reach 1,000 blog followers. I am definitely getting there! I’m now at over 650 followers, which is the most I’ve ever had on a book blog, and I’m really proud of myself and grateful for the friendships I’ve made!
  • Change my name and pronouns. I DID THIS. I am now out at work and am looking into changing my name legally.
  • Experiment with YouTube. I have done this a bit. It hasn’t gone anywhere so far, but who knows.
  • Feel more okay than not. VERY happy to report I have done this! I feel so much better than when I first drafted this post, and have made progress in leaps and bounds. I am really thankful that I have such good health insurance and work with professionals who were able to get me the help I needed. This was my ultimate goal, and I am so happy that I feel so much better.
