I decided to take a break from goal setting in the month of January. I don’t 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. I’m not on the schedule every week, so I take shifts whenever I can. 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 DnD 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. There’s 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.

It’s usually a good idea to set up a budget for a con. But honestly..it is so hard to stick to that. I pretty much always buy way too much stuff on cons…just because it’s all so awesome 😂😂 Looks like some awesome goals to mee. Good luck ! 😊
Yeah thanks I will need it, I will bring along some cash, but also set a limit of “this is how much I can use my debit card to spend on stuff”

Budget for Con…I don’t think I ever really set one. I just look at stuff and think, do I need this, can I afford this…And yes, play DnD. It is like Gym, but for creative parts of your brain
Haha for me I’m like: Oh that looks cool, let’s buy it. So I need to be less impulsive when I go to a con. I do like playing D&D, I just need to figure out a time to make it work.
I”m happy to report that I’ve managed to read 3 books in the past 1.5 months. This is big for me. I haven’t had much time to game because of it, but loving the fact that I”m finally logging some good reading time. Just finished book 1 in Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn series. Great so far!
I love Brandon Sanderson and I’m definitely interested in reading his other book series.
Your coffee shop looks like so much fun! I love that the equipment resembles a science experiment. Good luck with all your goals.
It’s really cool, it’s used to make Kyoto Drip which is a cold brew coffee that brews one drop of coffee at a time. It’s less acidic than regular coffee and it’s my favorite drink in the summertime.
Good luck with your goals in February! I hope you’re able to save up for Planet Comicon!
Oh I have money saved, it’s just whether or not I will spend too much 😛
