Weekly Wishes { Week 3 | September 2014 }


Weekly Wishes

This is a blog meme by The Nectar Collective which I join because: (1) I need to transfer the buzzing things from my brain to somewhere else. (2) I need to get things done and (3) I need to get to my goals — retiring early — the fastest way possible!

I attended the #DesignHerStory Talk last week and I was kind of happy that I did. I’ma do a separate post about that. To tease you up, here’s a shot during the talk:

Last Week’s Wishes

…On Blogging

 [NAILED THIS!] Finish two blog posts: (1) Weekly Wishes and (2) Finance post

 [FAILED THIS!] Write one creative entry on The Lust Manifesto

★ [DONE WITH 1 WEEK ONLY] Create Blog Calendar for September, especially on my Couple Finance Series.

★ [NAILED THIS!] Contribute to Emergency Fund. (Was re-building this.)

 …On School + Work

★ [NAILED THIS!] Survive work. T_T Whew. I was effing tired with work, but the ‘Good.’ remarks can be quite motivating. :) 

★ [NAILED THIS!] Finish 2 MIT Reports. T_T I hope our teacher liked it. The Quality Assurance video was dramatic. It’s kind of depressing. I’m looking forward to our next report, the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) since we have a section which tackles BPO in the Philippines and I wanted to point out the freelancing community.

★ [NAILED THIS!] Start Economics Paper with my group. T_T I started working on it, but I haven’t finished my part yet. 

★ [NAILED THIS!] Study for Managerial Accounting report. T_T

★ [NAILED THIS!] Make a story on our MIT Exposure Trip. Apparently, my professor added me on LinkedIn and knew that I am a writer. Too bad because I was not meticulous enough on my papers — was concentrating on writing jobs more. T_T Look at my work below. It’s sort of a zine. Do you like it?

Do you also love setting goals? Are you a sucker of lists?

You can join the Weekly Wishes here and let’s cross out things from our lists and get things done! Yes, we are go-getters!

All of these for the love of side hustling, obsession of creating my own dream job and the hopes of retiring early. Cheers!
