So my aunt gave me the splendid idea to dedicate certain days of the week to specific things in order to help me post more consistently. Here's what I've decided to do.

Every Monday I'll make a list of how much I plan to read and write during the week. Every second and fourth Wednesday of each month, I'll discuss Ulysses which should start in January when my book club begins again. Every Non-Ulysses Wednesday I'll talk about interesting books. Every Friday I'll discuss what I've been reading lately. Finally every Saturday I'll discuss what I've written so far for the week.

Well, that's the plan for this coming year. Since I'm a little behind this week I just lay out my plans for the rest of the week and leave the book discussions for next Wednesday.

1. Finish Part 2 of Anna Karenia
2. Read a chapter of The Hobbit
3. Sew 5 squares

Those seem to be possible accomplishments for the rest of the week.

Until next time, happy readings!

P.S. Post 1 for the year accomplished! :)

New Year's Resolutions

So it's about that time of year to make resolutions for the next year. I've never actually done it before. At least not seriously. So this year I decided why not? Maybe it'll challenge me to actually to make posts on my blog. lol. I know some of you are probably snorting and rolling your eyes. (I know I did.) Well, now that I've made my attempt known to more than just myself I have to actually do it. Little bit of a pride thing I guess. In this case though it's not necessarily a bad thing because it means that I'll actually accomplish somethings this year!

All right so here is the list!

1. Post 26 times
2. Write a Novel
3. Finish half-read books
----Jane Eyre
----House of Leaves
----Life of Pi
----The Historian
----Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief
4. Read 12 books
5. Finish second quilt
6. Reread The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings (outside 12 novels)

Not a lot of stuff I know but I got to make them achievable right? well, mostly achievable #2 might be a bit of a problem. Guess we'll just have to wait until next year to see how much I've accomplished!

Until next time, happy readings!
