Here’s a late May update on a few things:
Run a half-marathon
Oh yeah – it’s done! And in under two hours (1:57:17). Full race recap here.
Got paid for April: $802, which leaves me with $3132-$802= $2330 to earn. I’ve had a fair bit of work this month so with any luck I’ll be another $1500 closer in a few days!
Make a website/blog for me
So I was going pretty well with this, but then I got too busy to blog. At least I got too busy to put it ahead of running, sleeping, doing the housework etc. Need to work on the frequency of posts.
Get a US Driver’s license
I’ve persuaded my friend Julia to lend her person as “MA licensed driver with 1 years experience”, we believe we can use a Zipcar in the test, so now we just need to do some practice, and then do the test. I doubt this is going to happen in the near future.
See at least 1 sunrise per month
Failed for April, but technically I was up before sunrise on 26th May for my half-marathon. There wasn’t much in the way of sun though…
Buy some shares
I looked into my late grandfather’s share portfolio for some ideas and honestly, it’s not great: at least it’s not ‘ethically’ great. It’s all oil and defense technology companies. I think I’ll look further. As for the actual process of buying shares, I’m looking into Barclays Stockbrokers to see how they work.
And for June:
Keep working to earn money, go to the Boston Pops, plan a trip to NYC and work on some writing.
