Weekly Accountability

Hi, everyone! It’s that time again! Weekly updates delivered every Saturday! Or Sunday, as the case may be. Wow, I’m off to a terrible start this year.

Completed Projects


Goal Updates

I had no goals this year, but the good thing fell through at the last minute, so mostly I’ve reoriented towards trying to restructure my yearly plan, such as it was, and now I’m waiting on others to see if I can move forward or need to redo certain steps. I expect that still takes me into March, though, to get everything sorted.

Writing Updates

This Week’s Fiction Wordcount: What even is writing.

This Week’s Non-Fiction Wordcount: What even is writing.

I think I’m going to stop tracking the Let’s Read Academics posts, which is most of the nonfiction because clearly they’re giving me a sense of accomplishment when I write these posts that is not useful to me. Also I’m bad at tracking things and this actually makes it easier. Let me know if you’d like me to keep tracking them, though!

Life And Other Such Important Matters

As I mentioned above, the good thing fell through, so it’s back to square 1 for me. That said, I have been working diligently on getting a TEFL certificate and have reached the stage where I need to do the assignments rather than the online tests, so I expect to know whether I get a certificate by the end of February if not sooner. There is some progress! It’s just small and slow.

Stand-out Positive Moment

I DID NOT FAIL MY FIRST ASSIGNMENT ON THE FIRST TRY. Which, fine, is a mixed blessing because now I’m not sure if I can redo it and improve on what I did, but I was also fully expecting to fail outright and did not. Also this type of lesson is, not going to lie, the hardest type of lesson for me to plan. So we’ll see! But there are more things to be done and then… Well, we’ll see where we go from there.
