30 Days of Me - Day 8 - Short-Term Goals

St Paul's at Night

I'm not very goal oriented at the moment.
My professional life has been, while not discussing specifics on the internet, interesting recently, and my personal life? has been trundling along constant as ever.

But in the spirit of the meme ...
x Reconnect with London - my time in London seems more like a distant dream than ever before. I don't like it. So, I will remedy it, this involves reading old ohdarling entries and tweets, revisiting my flickr account, and reading an article about St Paul's Cathedral written by A.A. Gill.
x Take more photos - at the moment 1/2 the days in my "week in photographs" consist of the only shot I took that day.
x Be more organised - I need a different planner. I love the sparse look of my moleskine, but I don't like how restrictive it is in terms of planning.
x Read more - I have a very seriousTM book that I'm reading at the moment (full title) and it's due back on the 6th October. Also, my pile of books to read is getting ridiculous.
x Organise my "office" - there are boxes which haven't been unpacked since the move in November last year. Oops.
x Decide what I want to do for my birthday - usually I am brimming with plans but it seems that this year my thoughts towards the celebration of my birth are thus: meh.
x Finish this damned meme - because really, what's the point otherwise? Also, it finishes the night before my birthday.

I think the only goals which are unlikely to be completed this month are the personal and office organisation. Saving for shoes and tattoo leaves scarce funds for a filofax and ... organising the office is just SO boring.
But hey, the intention is important too, right?


  1. 1) I love your photos. Mine pale in comparison each week!

    2) I thought you got a filofax like Gala's? TBH, I don't really read her site anymore but that's the last I remember. Was that just a dream?

    3) What's your next tattoo again? I'm losing track as usual.

  2. 1. Thank you! that is a really really old photo. But one of my favourites.
    2. Nup. I want to get one but there are other savings goals first.
    3. My rib piece. I'm keeping quiet about the exact details but there are only 29 days to go now!
