Today’s tea is something really special. Jasmine Downey Pearls, or Buddha’s Tears as they’re also known as, are these little hand-rolled balls of white tea. They are placed in hot water without an infuser and they slowly unfurl and sink to the bottom of the cup. It’s consumed with the tea leaves leaves left in. I find it really fascinating to watch.
It is late in the evening and there is not much time left in the month to post. I left it late again as I was doing more census work. This time in the rain. At least the air was fresh. But I did have to go home in my break to dry out a bit. I did a bit late in the evening around dinner time. I got some responses, but I doubt I will do any visits after dark again. You spend too much of your time on the edge on every little potential noise. You also don’t want to spend too much time at someone’s door wondering if anyone will answer. People might think I’m up to something. No response in 20-30 seconds after dark means they’re not home or not willing to see you. The area I’ve been allocated is also not as ideal at night. Never again.
Well, I think it’s time to look at those goals I set a month ago. How well did I meet them?
Finish Test and Tag website. I need photos. – NOPE
Set up MYOB invoicing on my work laptop. – NOPE
Design business cards. – NOPE
So I didn’t do any of this. I kinda got sidetracked by actually starting a job. Will need to get back to it though.
Stop Being EVAC treasurer. Call AGM to make that happen. – GOAL ACHIEVED
Go to sleep at 10:30 PM Tuesday through Thursday. – PARTIALLY ACHIEVED
Thursday night Pokemon Go walk. More exercise than I usually do. – ALTERNATE GOAL ACHIEVED
This was a lot better. I need to improve on my sleeping times. They were much better. I need to maintain them a bit better though. Not being treasurer has been nice. I don’t have to worry about drinks any more which is a good feeling. I’ve been way more active. There was one major exercise walk a week which was better than just a brisk walk on a Thursday night. There were nature walks. I’m also doing a lot of walking with my job.
Blaugust – 1 post a day for a month to improve my writing skills (that’s how I framed it). – GOAL ACHIEVED
Music – Neko Nation is in September. I need a 1 hour music set. – PARTIALLY ACHIEVED
Still stop Being EVAC treasurer. Come to EVAC because I want to. Not because I feel like I have to. – GOAL ACHIEVED
Find time to actually do some gaming. – NOPE
I did the Blaugust thing really well. My music set is closer to being complete but still needs work. Was barely any gaming time. But that’s only because I haven’t made time for it. Once again, EVAC has been more fun knowing that I only need to be there if I actually want to go, catch up with friends and have some fun.
Be tidy and maintaining my general living area. – YES AND NO
There are parts of my living area that are vastly improved. I packed a lot away from AVCon which was looming over my head. But I still have too much untidiness in my living space. I’ll need to give more attention to that.
Tomorrow I will get a new set of goals whilst trying to maintain the ones I have met. There is always time for fine tuning my life. I know some things didn’t get done. The Test and Tag site was a big fail on my part. But I’ve been working. The whole point of setting up a Test and Tag business was to get some work. The job I am doing still has an end date, so I need to get that ball rolling.
So the final goal. Less Soft-drink. More Tea! – HUGE GOAL ACHIEVED!
I have more tea than I could dream of. But I want to try many many more varieties. I have consumed less soft drinks as a result.
So that’s another year of Blaugust done and dusted. It’s definitely been fun. Join me next year for some more shenanigans. But if you like, I’ll try to make some more posts in between.
So Until Next Time,
Have Fun And Stay Sexy!
PS: THIS TEA IS AWESOME! YOU’VE GOTTA TRY IT!
