Personal Goals for Semester 1, 2017/18

I set about trying to both write up, and manage my total ideal to-do lists and calendar for this semester (up until Christmas) but once put together I discovered not just the inevitable budget deficit but also *ahem* a serious time deficit once the worst-case times were estimated – although there is an oversimplifying linearity here including travel times e.g. skydiving occupies the time spent getting there and sitting around even though I could spend that time watching and reading things elsewhere on the lists.

I therefore need to go about prioritising these, and stripping it back but until then I am publishing my initial first draft so that it is up here and I feel more accountable for completion!
