Goal Getter // September 2015



  • Design/Build a website for side hustle (0%)
  • Design/Order print collateral for side hustle (0%)

Notes: Ugh, jeez. Last week I was planning on at least getting started on the web design. I think I'm letting fear hold me back. I need to suck it up!


  • Pay off my Credit Card (30%)
  • Deposit all the change in/around the house (30%)

Notes: OMG. So I went to the bank last week with two heavy ass jars of change, only to discover they no longer use the change machine (which I could then deposit without having to pay any of those change machine fees). So I came back home with a ton of coin wrappers and the two jars. So far, I've only managed to get one jar in the wrappers. -_-
