Goals & Gratitude 5/26/19
Sunday, May 26, 2019
Today has been a blustery and cold day. It sprinkled on and off all day. Today, the last Sunday of the month, is usually the day I go to visit our local Orthodox monastery for a gathering, but because of the rain it was cancelled until next month. So I stayed at church a little longer than normal talking to people, came home and took a short nap, and then got going with homework. I finished half of my accounting homework. I was hoping to get through all of it, but it's 11 questions, so getting through 5 was a challenge. It took me just over 2 hours to do those 5, so I figure it will take me another 2-3 hours tomorrow to get through the rest.
My goal for this week is to get up around 6 am, which is when the cats get me up. I usually go back to sleep, but I need to stay up so I have enough time to do my homework. I need to write for my papers tomorrow and finish for the accounting homework I mentioned above. I have a lot to do over the next four days. I have to be finished with one paper and turn it in by Thursday evening. And I have regular homework due Sunday that I have to be finished with by Thursday. And I need to be finished with the accounting work that is due a week from Monday. Luckily, I am ahead in that class and only have two things to do for it, so I know I will get done on time. It is the papers and projects that I am worried about. I have read and studied for both projects, but I haven't started writing yet for either one. That's one of the main reasons I want to get up early this week, so that I have enough time to write! I am not a morning person, so it will be challenging, but I am feeling the pressure, so I know that will help me to get my work done.
Tonight, I'm going to read a little more about the history of Barnes & Noble for my financial analysis of them. I have their Wikipedia page, which is helpful, but I'm not sure I can use it in my essay. I need to ask. But it's good background. I also need to finish reading their yearly financial statement so I can see what the company is saying about their poor earnings. I am curious about how they are going to spin this!
1) Finish Cost Accounting homework and quiz.
2) Write the introduction, background, and review of the literature for my research paper.
3) Write part one (company description) of my Barnes & Noble paper.
4) Take notes for Financial Statement Analysis.
Today I'm Grateful For...
1) That the weather was cool, though I'm looking forward to sunny weather later this week.
2) That church was nice today.
3) That I had a good last day with my Sunday school class today.
