June 28- Notes on goal changes:
1. Reading books with Goodreads - should have set a higher goal at the start.
2. Swedish vocabulary words - I checked how many new words I had to learn every day until the end of the year, was a bit under 15. Wanted to lower the goal so I can still do the other Swedish course as well.
3. Changing the goal complete date of  Exploring Service APIs through Test automation - was just a bit lazy at the start and got sidetracked with other stuff.
