Hello and welcome to the second peak and check in with my goals for the year of 2022! We are now in the last third of the year, kinda wild to be typing that out already, but it is true. I have honestly have not even thought about these goals since my last post, I am hoping I made some progress organically and I won’t have to focus too much on them in the last four months of the year.
Read 6 non-fiction books, I have read a total of 5 non-fiction books, I only need one more!
Read the International Booker Prize Shortlist, I have read 4 of the 6, so the progress is right on par!
- At Night All Blood Is Black: A Novel by David Diop
- The Dangers of Smoking in Bed by Mariana Enriquez (Read)
- When We Cease to Understand the World by Labatut Benjamin (Read)
- The Employees by Olga Ravn (Read)
- The War of the Poor by Eric Vuillard (Read)
- In Memory of Memory by Maria Stepanova
Get owned TBR under 15 books, I am currently at 12 books! I am really thrilled to get my Owned TBR down to this number. I hope to continue in this manner and get it down even more so I can pick up a book and read it while the excitement is there.
See a new place, I ended up visiting about 4 new yarn shops this year. Not quite what I had in mind for this goal, but technically I did do it.
Teach myself something new, In my last post on the topic I talked about learning color work, cables, and bobbles in knitting. In addition to taking a genealogy research class.
Knit a sweater, achieved! In my last post and I have knitted another since then!
Knit 6 pairs of socks, so far I have created 5 pairs and I have one that is missing its partner! So, I am super close!
Crochet a sweater, I have yet to do this one, but I have knitted two and am in the middle of three so I am kinda alternating this one to knitting. Crocheting garments is just not for me, I enjoy crocheting toys, bags, and those types of things.
Create 10 things with my hands, as of writing this I have created 13 items!
Not Completed: 3
I have successfully achieved 6 of my 9 goals for this year. Kinda funny how it lines up with a third being left to accomplish and a third of the year is left! I am glad the ones I have not achieved I have made progress in and am close to being able to check it off my list. I am glad my past self put me in such a good position to meet my goals.
All I need to do is finish one sock, read one more nonfiction book, and read 2 more books from the International Booker Prize Shortlist. All very manageable and I am confident that I will do these before the year is through!
