→ April 2014 Goals

heathers, heathers the musical, off-broadway, musical, cult classic, reproduction

March Goals:
Finish transferring all of my music to my new computer
Yes. Thank goodness! I got it all done before my free trial was up. I transferred my photos as well.

Find my paperwork or request a copy of the inspection paper and refill out the other forms
I went back to Preventative Medicine and got the inspection paper again. I wanted to get all of the paperwork done and handed in to the Housing Office so they can sign off and transfer everything to Legal, but Ryan needed to send the paperwork up his chain of command with a chit just saying that I’m starting my own business. So, the paperwork was sitting in Security (his section) for several days before it bounced back because I didn’t have one of the papers notarized, which I thought would happen once everything got to legal, but apparently not. So we had to go to legal and get it notarized and now it’s all going back up his chain of command. Who knows when I’ll be able to start my business.

→ Practice hooping… a lot
I practiced a bit, but not as much as I would have liked. I get frustrated after a few minutes. Ugh.

Get into a routine
Finally! My therapist wrote his dissertation on sleep, so he knows a whole lot about it. We decided that I would work on Sleep Restriction Therapy and right now we’re finding my optimal sleep time. I’m almost up to nine hours though and if I get there he wants to request a sleep study to make sure everything is okay with me. I’m mostly terrified going out in town and I’m about 100% positive that I would have to go to a doctor’s office out in town for it. Plus, stay overnight hooked up to machines… so… not a fan.

→ Do the stretches from physical therapy every other day (at least)
Nope. Not even once. And I’m sure that all of the pain I have is all my fault cos I should be doing a bunch of stretches that I’m not doing.

April Goals:
→ Participate in Camp NaNoWriMo
I’ve only every done NaNoWriMo, and normally I’m researching a ton instead of actually writing so I’d like to take advantage of the April Camp to do research and then maybe use July’s to accomplish an outline so I can actually write during NaNoWriMo.

→ Practice and master airbrushing and doing makeup
On the 26th, I’m doing my first ever photo shoot as a makeup artist and it’s an all-day event with upwards of 10 models. I’ve never worked on anyone else but myself so it’s definitely going to be outside of my comfort zone. I have two friends that said they’d be guinea pigs, but one is out of the area for the first two weeks at least and the other is super busy with her business. Either way, I should probably at least practice on myself.

→ Do my stretches from physical therapy
I’m in pain and I need to start doing my stretches. Pretty self-explanatory.

→ Clean and organize
My apartment is a mess. On top of that, Ryan and I want to move the cats’ litter box to a closet, move my makeup area into our spare bedroom, clean out and organize our hall closet, put away laundry, and probably a million other things.

→ Finish Crime School
I’m about half way through so it shouldn’t be super difficult to finish.

→ Try out some new baking recipes
If I ever get my paperwork back and where it needs to go, I’d like to have more than a few recipes to rely on. Plus, I need to bake more.

What are your goals for this coming month?

→ March 2014 Goals


These were my goals for February:
Didn’t finish a book, but I am actively reading Shell Game by Carol O’Connell; one chapter a night.

Pass inspection
Wham, bam, totally passed! Except somehow all of my paperwork went missing… so I can’t submit it… so I can’t start my business yet. Such is my life.

Bake and take pictures
I made a banana bread and a peanut butter pie! Took pictures of both.

Set up Kitsch Cait and Kitsch Vixen
I’m still sorting things out, but my main focus of this goal was to make this post, and I did, so hooray!

Make a list of places/things to do while living in Japan
I’ve started one with my husband. So far we have, like, five things, but that’s better than nothing!

Meet a new person
I got my hair done a little over a week ago, and the woman who did it is super nice. I’ll definitely go back to her in the future and maybe even see if she’s available to hang out.

→ Do something special with my husband
Nope. This didn’t happen.

→ Finish transferring all of my music to my new computer
Ugh, what a painful and tedious process. I got a Macbook Pro for my Anniversary/Valentine’s Day/tax refund present and I need to get all of my music from my desktop (a PC) onto it pretty soon. I signed up for ADrive.com because Dropbox was taking forever and didn’t give me much room for storage, plus I got a free month. Ideally, I’d like to finish before my free month is up.

→ Find my paperwork or request a copy of the inspection paper and refill out the other forms
Although I had everything all ready for my husband to send up his chain of command, he can no longer do it because the paperwork seems to have just vanished. It’s not where I put it and I’ve looked everywhere else. I like to believe that I’m very organized when it comes to important things, so I was devastated when I went to hand over my papers to the hubby and there was nothing there to hand over.

→ Practice hooping… a lot
As of right now, I can’t do anything except halos, but I’ve only been at it for three days! I really want to be able to do more than 5 waist hooping revolutions by April. I’ll either be doing 15 minutes or an hour a day, but I’ll take a day off if the bruising gets bad. I’m super excited to be able to hoop! I’ve already bought my second one!

→ Get into a routine
My husband is back on the dreaded night schedule. That means I get to choose whether I want to do it with him and have weird, sporadic hours or not do it and only have a several hours to spend with my husband on his days off and maybe one or two hours to spend with him on work days. I had decided that I didn’t want to sleep past 0900, but what I really want is to wake up by 0600. If I can’t get into a (day) routine by the end of March, I’ll go on night’s with my husband.

→ Do the stretches from physical therapy every other day (at least)
I just had my second appointment with the base’s physical therapist and boy did she give me SO MANY more stretches to do. I’m half excited and half overwhelmed, but I know that I don’t need to do every single stretch every single day. I’ll be making up a schedule for them this month. I can’t wait to not have constant back pain.
