Quest for Happiness: Week Fourteen

Let’s see how I did, shall we?


  • Long-term Goal: Shape the body I want and become healthier.
  • Last Week’s Goal: Complete the first week in the Naturally Slim program.
    • Status: Partial? So, I did watch the videos for Week One of the program. However, because I wasn’t feeling too hot, I didn’t actually alter my eating habits at all to try and follow their advice. So I’m hoping, once I kick this cold out, that’ll be able to start trying those out.
  • This Week’s GoalComplete Week Two and get back to the gym.


  • Long-term Goal: Edit three books, write four new books and query at least one.
  • Last Week’s Goal: Get halfway through Round One edits.
    • Status: Nada. I did get another chapter down, but not much further than that. Still, progress is progress!
  • This Week’s Goal: Edit two more chapters.


  • Long-term Goal: Read 60 books.
  • Last Week’s Goal: Finally finish The Desert Spear. 
    • Status: Almost. I seriously have 20 pages left in this book. Goodness me.
  • This Week’s Goal: Write book review.


  • Long-term Goal: Create and maintain a mindset that taking care of yourself is just as important as everything else.
  • Last Week’s Goal: Keep playing Andromeda without guilt.
    • Status: Success! I didn’t get to play as much as I wanted, but definitely enjoyed the times I got to play (especially the night it rained).
  • This Week’s Goal: Beat another planet on Andromeda.


  • Long-term Goal: Increase output over all three blogs, i.e., post more consistently.
  • Last Week’s Goal: Actually catch up on reading blogs.
    • Status: Nada. 
  • This Week’s Goal: Okay, actually actually catch up on reading blogs.


  • Long-term Goal: Manage money with more awareness, start retirement fund and build savings.
  • Last Week’s Goal: Don’t spend any unnecessary money. ANY.
    • Status: Nada. My bank account isn’t as bad as I feared it would be, but it definitely needs some strict management.
  • This Week’s Goal: Maintain tight budget.

So, not the best week. It’s crazy how a little old cough and feeling slightly under the weather can throw off my entire groove. Which sucks, because last Monday, I felt so productive and on top of things. Hopefully this week, I’ll be able to do better.



About Nicole Evans

Nicole Evans is a writer of fantasy and science fiction. She is currently unpublished and is working fervently to get the "un" removed from that statement. With six books under her belt and more on the way, she loves to write about destined heroes who fail anyway, twisting classic tropes on their heads, animals who feel more like people and, hopefully, about characters and worlds for you to have an opinion about. She really can't wait for you to read these stories.  Considering she has run out of space for putting rejections letters up on her wall, Nicole now uses her spare time doing the typical things that nerds do: blogging, dying repeatedly during video games (which she believes is retribution for the characters' she's killed), wishing she was the character she is currently reading about and trying to fight off the real world by living in her own head, with varying degrees of success. Nicole has a degree in Creative Writing and a minor in Film and Media Studies, and works as an evening librarian assistant. View all posts by Nicole Evans
