I decided to take a break from goal setting in the month of January. I don’t really like setting “New Year’s Resolutions” because often whatever goal I set, I abandon within a month anyway. Now that January is over and done with, I wanted to talk about my month of February with a new set of goals waiting to be met.
Set a budget for Planet Comicon
I always spend too much money at conventions because I love to buy new comics, art and more. I haven’t decided how much spending money I will actually bring, but I’m going to set a budget for sure. Usually I bring cash with me so once I spend whatever I have in cash, I’m done. This seems to work for me at most conventions, but I think I’m planning on bringing at least $80. I did look at the exhibitor listing before the convention and Tee Turtle is one of them and I love their t-shirts so honestly, this is going to be tough for me.
Work at Steamship at least once per month.
Steamship Coffee & Tea is the coffee shop I work at in Minneapolis which by the way is the coolest coffee shop in Minneapolis. My goal is to work there at least once per month. I’m their emergency barista in case someone needs time off or is too sick to come to work. I like it because I can set my own hours and choose shifts that work for me. Did I also mention my coffee shop is in the same space as Universe Games ? I can stock up on my board game needs while earning money making lattes.
Play D&D at least once this month.
I’m a part of an all female D&D group on Facebook and I haven’t once gone to a role playing session. I usually justify it because I have to meal prep on Sunday or go to the gym. I need to cut out the excuses and just go for a couple hours because I know I would have fun.
Read one book & one comic book this month.
I still have Paper Girls Volume #3, Saga Volume #2 and Madame Xanadu to read along with a pile of books. I want to set the bar low for this one because I do end up getting busy in between work. I have been better at reading before bed and I bring a book to read on my lunch break. So much to read and so little time to do it.
Happy February everyone! Happy Valentine’s Day and Galentine’s Day and whatever else happens in this month.
