It’s the end of March, 3 months into 2016, 25% of the year gone already! 2 out of 3 terms of the academic year finished!! Where is the time going?
It is that time to reflect once more on the promises I made to myself back at the start of the year. I honestly cant believe that we are already 25% of the way through the year as it seems like only yesterday I was writing my promises. It seems like only yesterday that I returned to the UK after 7 years living and working in the Middle East. Am going to chalk it up to “time flies when you are having fun” however I have to admit it hasn’t all been “fun” thus far.
So to my resolutions and progress to date.
- To blog twice per month.
After a very busy February with #29daysofwriting and a blog every day I have became a little tired during March which has caused me to seek to recharge my batteries allowing some of my resolutions to lapse a little. That said I have still managed to maintain and even exceed this target as part of #44weeks. Currently I am managing to write a post weekly as opposed to every two weeks. It is my hope to continue this going forward.
- To tweet on average 1.9 time per day or more
My contributions to twitter have significantly dropped as a result of my need to recharge. In February I managed over 230 tweets within the month however so far in March I have only managed 70 tweets. 70 tweets is above my target however only just so this is an area I would like to improve on. I think I also need to acknowledge that most of my tweets in March have in fact been retweets as opposed to new content. This has served its purpose in March however I think it is important that I am contributing to the twitterverse rather than just consuming.
- To achieve Google Certified Education Level 2
Still have made no real progress on this one. Given the Easter holidays it may be something I can address over the coming weeks.
- Read at least 1 book per month
My reading in February significantly dropped as a result on writing so much for #29daysofwriting. Sadly in March I have done little to address this. I therefore need to get back into the habit of making time to read at least every couple of nights.
Overall I am still doing reasonably well against my targets however a reduction in my momentum is clearly evident when compared with January and February. I would suggest that this is inevitable however I would also suggest that the Easter break comes at the right time to allow to recovery and a reset for the next term with renewed momentum.
Bring on term 3!!
