It’s been an okay month for my Day Zero Project – I’ve made progress on a few, completed one more, and started a few new ones.
1. Take an online or evening course or complete a language on Duolingo
I’ve started the new Japanese course on Duolingo, which is super fun. I’ve barely made a dent on the tree so far but I’ve really been enjoying it.
8. Take part in an organised run (parkrun counts!) – Complete
I took part in a charity 10K since my last update! I didn’t run the whole thing, but I was pretty pleased with how much of it I did run, and I’d definitely consider doing another one!
34. Five day/evening out dates [1/5]
We went to another town to do some shopping – mostly of the window variety! – and had Wagamamas for lunch.
37. Watch 101 movies [3/101]
An extra two movies watched – Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge (enjoyable enough, pretty standard for the series) and Wonder Woman (awesome!).
63. Get rid of 100 things [23/100]
I had a bit of a ruthless cull of my bookshelves and have pulled out 22 books to donate. That might not sound like that many but I only have a small shelf so it’s made a pretty substantial dent – which was totally necessary because I have too many books.
66. Try bullet-journalling for 3 months [0/12 weeks]
This needs to be 3 months of consistent use, so although last month I’d used it for a week, I’ve failed since so I’m back to the beginning! I’m finding the biggest issue is future planning, since I work irregular shifts, so I’m setting up a new bullet journal with that in mind and I’m hoping that could finally be the end of my bullet trouble issues…
72. Pay off computer [400/1000]
Another £100 paid off.
73. Pay off overdraft [200/2000]
Only an extra £50 in this month 🙁 But better than none.
90. Read 200 books [16/200]
So far this month I’ve finished Flame in the Mist (11), Am I Normal Yet? (12), How Hard Can Love Be (13), The House of Hades (14), Ink (15), The Dry (16), .
96. Finish/Catch up on 24 book series (1/24)
The Spinster Club (as far as I know) are all out now with no more planned, so I can safely mark that series as complete, as I’d read What’s a Girl Gotta Do? before reading the first two this month.
