Quest for Happiness: Week Thirty Seven


  • Long-term Goal: Shape the body I want and become healthier.
  • Last Week’s Goal: Workout 4x and log food. Keep up new stretching/toning routine.
    • Status: Negative. I worked out twice and logged my food mostly, but I definitely ate horribly last week and completely failed at keeping up the new stretching/toning routine. Tied at the top for my main focus this week (with writing).
  • This Week’s Goal: Workout 4x, log food and try out new schedule/routine.


  • Long-term Goal: Edit all previously written works. Query one.
  • Last Week’s Goal: Recreate writing routine, figure out plot holes and learn about my main character.
    • Status: Negative. 
  • This Week’s Goal: Try out new writing schedule, fix at least one plot hole, map out main character and research one thing.


  • Long-term Goal: Read 60 books.
  • Last Week’s Goal: Finish Red Seas Under Red Skies.
    • Status: Negative. 
  • This Week’s GoalActually finish this dang book. 


  • Long-term Goal: Create and maintain a mindset that taking care of yourself is just as important as everything else.
  • Last Week’s Goal: Play some Strikes with my Clan.
    • Status: Success! We even did a compete Crucible match which was actually really fun (and I even finished second on the list in terms of efficiency and number of kills, which is…unheard of).
  • This Week’s Goal: Have fun at the Blues Game!


  • Long-term Goal: Increase output over all three blogs, i.e., post more consistently.
  • Last Week’s Goal: Two posts on each blog.
    • Status: Success! Even wrote a bonus third one of the personal blog.
  • This Week’s Goal: Keep up blogging routine.


  • Long-term Goal: Manage money with more awareness, start retirement fund and build savings.
  • Last Week’s Goal: Pay bills for next month and stay frugal.
    • Status: Success! 
  • This Week’s Goal: Pay rent.

Not the best week, yet not the worst week, either. I did have a massive To-Do list last week and was impressed that I managed to almost cross everything off of it–with the notable exception of working out and writing. So while I can’t really label last week as a bust, I’m definitely very conscious (perhaps over conscious) of those two missing elements from my life and I need them to be present this week.

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 She is currently unpublished and is working fervently to get the "un" removed from that statement.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
