Things change and with that change comes change. You can write that down. It’s deep.
And thus, here in February, we bid a fond farewell, or a tepid farewell, to #AccountaClub. Oh, #AccountaClub, we hardly knew ye. Except we did, and frankly, you’re just less fun than #FridayThoughts.
So that is that. We can always still talk about our weeks, but the structured post is going the way of the dodo, poor dodo.
It’s freeing, you know, letting go of systems that don’t work for you. We don’t have to do things just because we’ve always done them, or we’ve done them for a while.
Especially in our own little corners of the universe. Well, not a corner really. More like a teeny tiny tiny tiny speck of the universe.
With that I hope you have a delightful Friday and an even more delightful weekend.
So here we are, the first last Friday of the year, and time for #AccountaClub! For the new arrivals, AccountaClub is where we talk about our goals and how they’re going, and in 2020, it’s happening on the last Friday of every month.
Goals for me were medium this month. I did some editing, but not enough; I was largely derailed by this cold that is gaining ferocity daily. It’s a tricky one.
I did start doing some freelancing for Rantt Media, it seems that the political writing is going to flood out of me no matter what, I might as well lean into it.
Fitness-wise, my goal is to do five Daily Burn workouts a week, and I got all my workouts in, despite the cold. I’m particularly proud of that, this week it was very difficult, but I modified as necessary and didn’t push too hard. I think that’s a good life lesson, as forward motion is forward motion.
And that’s me. How was your January?
I’m thinking I’m going to scale back on #AccountaClub next year. Perhaps make it once a month; perhaps cut it entirely.
Though I’m leaning toward once a month.
You may or may not have noticed, but my blog posts have taken on a certain rhythm this year, and I like it. Most mornings, when I sit to write, there’s the post, ready to go, in my brain.
Except for #AccountaClub.
I’d like a little more flexibility on Friday. And we can still talk about our weeks, because why not?
But writing is always evolution, and for now, the weekly posts feel stagnant to me. Presto chango, I can fix that.
We’ll see. Luckily blogs are not written in stone. They’re written in mystical electrons that are somehow visible to the human eye or something like that.
I’m pretty sure I’m close.
Either way, have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend.
Huh. Didn’t realize it was Friday the 13th until I typed the headline. No wonder there’s a Christmas Friday the 13th movie coming out. I thought that was an odd combo.
It all makes sense now.
But on to #AccountaClub! There was some editing, and there was a lot of other stuff, including taking care of some things that had been hanging over my head. So if you missed Wednesday’s post, and you have one of those, do the thing!
I did the thing. It felt great.
I also saw the Andy Warhol exhibit at the Art Institute, and it was amazing.
And on other fronts, I’ve been teaching myself to crochet through the plethora of Youtube videos, and I made two scarves! A regular one and an infinity scarf. I’m working on number three, it’s a great way to get the brain going.
Fitness was also good this week, five days, five workouts.
That’s me! How was your week?
My brain wanted to type 2017, but my fingers knew better. Here we are at the very very back edge of 2019.
On the cusp of 2020, a year that once sounded so far in the future it was probably going to happen in the far reaches of space. I wonder if they felt that way about 1920.
Anyway, it’s AccountaClub time, when we talk about how our weeks and our projects are going.
Editing went, not in a stellar way, but I made progress. Fitness was five days, five workouts, and they were pretty good. Today was yoga, which is always, always a favorite.
And that was my week. How was yours?
It’s been a week, I’ll tell you. She’s going to be OK, but my mom had a heart attack on Monday, I had a friend in from out of town and I, of course, managed to pick up a cold.
So it might shock you to learn I haven’t gotten much done in the way of editing or writing. I even forgot to write a blog post entirely on Wednesday.
My mom is home from the hospital and recovering well. It’s important to know that heart attack symptoms in women may not be like those in men; I did a thread:
I’m proud of the fitness though, because I did my five days, even with all that was going on. I think it may have even helped me get through it. The exercise definitely did.
I’m pretty tired overall. So that’s me. How was your week?
Friday again! And so quickly, too.
I’m not feeling bloggy today, so it will be a quick one. Some progress was made with editing, but then I had a weird glitch and I lost my work which did not make me happy.
Plus side, only the first time through so it wasn’t very substantive.
Minus side, that’s still annoying.
I’m not missing doing NaNoWriMo, so I’m glad I opted out this year. As for fitness, five days, five workouts, so that was good.
How was your week?
Well here we are! End of the week and a brand-new month, all in one. It’s been a bit of a strange week, and we have snow on the ground already. When I said winter was on its way, I didn’t mean immediately, but here we are.
Final decision on NaNoWriMo was a no, and an unrepentant one. I just didn’t want the pressure this year; it didn’t sound fun. So I’m striding into November without even the pretense of doing it.
It doesn’t feel bad, I’ll tell you that, which makes me think I made the right decision. Besides, I have a ton of editing ahead.
Speaking of, I’ve made inroads, and while there will be a lot to hammer out, I had a line that made me laugh aloud and feels tonally perfect.
Workouts were five days, five workouts, and this week we had some fun ones on Daily Burn 365. Zombie Apocalypse on Wednesday. Yesterday everyone was in costume.
So that’s me! How was your week?
It’s been a week. An “Everything falls on the floor the moment you get it into place” week.
So not a great week.
I did do some editing, not enough but some, and more to come today. And fitness-wise, five days, five workouts.
They were good workouts, though I got up this morning extra sore. That’s good, right?
Looking forward to a quiet weekend. So that’s me, how was your week?
Hello Friday! And with Friday it’s time to talk about how we’re doing on our various goals.
So I’ve been editing, not as much or as quickly as I should, but it’s happening, and that’s something. I do love editing on a tablet, it’s remarkable how close it is to using paper, but I can actually read my notes later.
That’s a bonus.
Fitness has been five days, five workouts, and I liked this week, maybe because it was mostly strength and somehow it feels like less work. Though it’s pretty challenging.
So that’s my week. How was yours?
