Hello friends. August and July were really heavy months for me. Work had me pulling my hair out, I was putting in a lot of hours at the animal sanctuary I volunteer at, and I was planning for a 5 day visit from my mom.
So, the last time I posted a real blog was on August 22nd. A lot has happened since then. Especially on my bookshelf. So what have I been reading?
Hello everyone! It’s a semi-cold and rainy day here in the Midwest, and I wish I was curled up with a book and some tea. Sadly, it’s a work day, so I’ll be chained to my desk instead. But before I start another long work day, I’m going to take some time to lay down my goals for the next two months.
It’s August 2nd, which means my last round of bi-monthly goals is officially at an end. So, how did we do?
I’m breaking a few of my own rules here. This book was not on my to read list as discussed in a previous blog. I put a hold on it at the library and it happened to be available so I went ahead and checked it out, which is breaking another rule where I’m not supposed to put things on hold while I’ve got other things to read. Oh well.
I saw that someone did this tag and I thought “Hey, I want to do that.” So I’m doing it, regardless of whether I’m tagged or not.
Now that I’ve got my personal projects (blog, book, etc.) up and running again, I thought it would be a good idea to set bi-monthly goals for myself. I think these will keep me from getting stuck in a rut or choosing to do other, time wasting things (I’m looking at you, YouTube) that stagnate the work I want to do. I want to post these here to create a little accountability for myself. It’s almost like if I tell the world what I want to do I will be more likely to make it happen.
