The Quarterly Goals Update

I have a bunch of catching up to do, so let’s start with the easy thing. Namely, the quarterly update on my goals for the year.

I got nothing done on either travelogues or on digitizing LPs and cassettes.

I didn’t make it to any more minor league ballparks, so, given that the season is over, I have failed miserably at that goal. In addition to the plans that had gotten canceled in June, I had a few vaguer plans that got rained out. Oh, well, there’s always next year.

I didn’t add any baseball volksmarch events, largely because one event I did was rerouted and no longer passed a ballpark. I have pretty solid plans for a couple of events soon, though. So I think that finishing that program remains achievable.

Reading the New Testament remains a slog. I think I made it about another 20 pages this quarter. Again, this is still achievable.

On the plus side, I’ve continued doing at least 2 crossword puzzles a day. I’ve gone to 2 National Parks (Acadia and Haleakala). And I’ve memorized 3 more poems - Richard Cory by Edwin Arlington Robinson, In a Prominent Bar in Secaucus by X. J. Kennedy and Resume by Dorothy Parker. The latter should probably not count, since it is so short, but I get to make the rules here. Next up is The Emperor of Ice Cream by Wallace Stevens.

Overall, I could do better, but I could do worse.
