Two months of notice period down, one to go. No period of time has ever dragged this much. It’s also been hot as balls, although the switch seems to have flipped today.
Savings: 0. No progress Debt: paid off my credit card! Extra money made: ￥4000 checking someone’s CV, and $43 writing two content pieces Novel: 10000 words. Was originally projected to be finished by now Running: 9 runs, average 11’18/mile, 35.4 miles. Farthest run: 8 miles. Better, but still incredibly slow Best streak: No smoking (6 days in a row) Worst longest streak: Novel (0 days)
Black marks: Progress on the novel has pretty much stalled. I haven’t written a single blog post since the last monthly update. Regretting dropping Japanese as a goal, since I’m now doing almost no study but still have 5 lessons left (and a test tomorrow!). Smoked too much, ate out too much.
Bright spots: Love life still pretty good. Started to make a bit of side money. Didn’t run out of money before payday, which is a first. Good long run.
Savings: 0 Debt: roughly £2500 (overdraft, credit card, a couple of personal loans, a couple of random bills) Extra money made: 0 Novel: 4001 words Weight: 9 stone 11.8 Running: 13 runs, average 10’48/mile, 49.1 miles. Farthest run: 7 miles Best streak: French (5 days in a row) Worst longest streak: Novel/ blog (1 day)
I’ve pretty much decided I’m going to leave Japan after my contract runs out in September. So for July I’m removing French and No Eating Out Alone from the goals (French because it’s not particularly urgent, the other because I should eat as much Japanese food as possible while I’m here). I’m adding in ‘Job task’ (do something that will get me paid or help me get work) and ‘Instagram’ (posting one photo a day, to encourage me to explore a bit more).
