Goals for July

So I've been slacking, lately, when it comes to my blog. The only posts I've been putting up are Celebrate the Small Things posts, and even then I miss those some weeks. The trouble is, most weeks I work 50 hours at work, with a lot of 12 hour shifts, and all I want to do when I get home is watch TV. However, I've decided to stop using this as an excuse; I need to use my spare time more wisely, and I'm going to start by spending at least half an hour each day blogging, whether that's writing blog posts or reading other blogs.

So here are my goals for July:

- Spend half an hour each day blogging

- Spend an hour a week writing - I've been working on a story for about two years now; I wrote it during NaNoWriMo, and am currently in the middle of rewrites for it. I haven't done any work on it in months, again due to work, so I'm going to start small; an hour a week working on it.

- Read 4 books - I'm slightly behind on my Goodreads reading goal of 50 books this year, but I should easily be able to catch up as I'm going to Greece at the end of this month for two weeks. Last year I went for a week and was able to get through 7 books while I was there, so I should be able to read more this time.

So those are my goals for this month, and I'm determined to stick to them! I've missed the world of blogging, and very much want to get back into the habit of blogging every day.

  1. Oh yes blogging is so delightful, glad you're working on coming back to us Laura. Organizing well spent spare time can be hard but I believe you can do it! Best of luck with writing and reading. Also have fun in Greece when you go.

  2. I think you are wise to make those small adjustments. Enjoy your time in Greece! I'm just a tad jealous as it's one of those places I'd love to visit, to walk the streets where Plato walked...

  3. That's a lot of hours you're putting in at work. Good luck with your goals! Starting small and then working up is a great way to make progress. Have fun in Greece!

  4. The television is a terrible beast at times. It is great to chill if you work long hours as you do. But it does sneak off with all your free time. I would start with half an hour every other day Miss Laura, until you get a bit more free time. It would be good to see you back a bit more regularly in cyberspace.

  5. Those are worthy goals. I should probably set similar goals, but they usually don't last long for me anyway. And here I thought it was just the Americans working 50-hour weeks, haha. Best of luck getting what you want to get done accomplished. I fall into the same sorts of traps even without such a workload.

  8. I know what you should definitely focus on: Accelerate to maximum POW!er:

    I realize the following is above any other superfluous objective mosta U.S. mortals can conceive; however, while I didn't descend into Hell for my sins, I ascended till I saw the Celestial City far away. Wanna heer bout it??

    Lemme fill-you-up withe efficacious epiphany, the avant-gardness and necessary wisdom to achieve Heaven, dear, if ya desire Heaven (many DON'T, preferring to stay 'laissez-faire' [i dont care] till death. Strange. The only other realm is one which you wont feel too cool).

    If 'freedom lies in being bold' (Robert Frost), doesn't pushing-the-envelope also result in the Elysian Fields of Utopia? And if I'm the sower, we plant the Seed; if I'm an artist, we RITE the symphonies heard Upstairs ☆IF☆ we accept His lead withe orchestra...

    Wanna find-out the fax, Jak, in a wurld fulla the 'power of cowards'? Wanna wiseabove to help a poor 'Plethora Of Wurdz' [POW!] which are look'n for a new home in thy novelty?? Yay!

    Q: But [gulp] can anyone tell me the difference between K2/IQ? A: Nthn. In Heaven, we gitt'm both HA! Need a few more thots, ideers, wild wurdz (whoa, Nelly! easy, girl!) or ironclad iconoclasms?

    VERBUM SAT SAPIENTI (Latin: words to [the] wise): As an ex-writer of the sassy, savvy, schizophenia we all go thro in this lifelong demise, I wanna help U.S. git past the ping-pong, pop-cult-politixx, the whorizontal more!ass! we're in and wiseabove to 'in fin sine fin' (Latin: in [the] End without End -Saint Augustine).

    "This finite existence is only a test, son," God Almighty told me in my coma. "Far beyond thy earthly tempest you'll find tangible, corpulent eloquence". Lemme tella youse without d'New Joisey accent...

    I actually saw Seventh-Heaven when we died: you couldn't GET!! any moe curly, party-hardy-endorphins, low-hanging-fruit of the Celestial Paradise, extravagantly-surplus-lush Upstairs (awww! baby kitties, too!!) when my beautifull, brilliant, bombastic girly passed-away due to those wry, sardonic satires...

    "Those who are wise will shine as brightly as the expanse of the Heavens, and those who have instructed many in uprightousness as bright as stars for all eternity" -Daniel 12:3, NJB

    Here's also what the prolific, exquisite GODy sed: 'the more you shall honor Me, the more I shall bless you' -the Infant Jesus of Prague.

    Go gitt'm, girly. You're incredible. You're indelible. Cya soon. I won't be joining'm in the nasty Abyss where Isis prowls
