New Beginnings Wednesday (March 17)

New Beginnings is a weekly event hosted by MizB at Should be Reading. It’s all about your New Years’ Resolutions! Everybody knows that these are really hard to stick to, so why not encourage each other in our efforts? Why not enlist the support of our online friends?

So, here it is…

  • Firstpost your list of New Years’ Resolutions in a post at your blog.
  • Secondevery week, on Wednesday, write a new post about how you’re doing with each of your goals … you’ll have to list them, again, each week, as people won’t remember what you’re working towards, otherwise. Be brief in your updates, as there may be several blogs to visit!
  • Third after you’ve written your update, visit Should Be Reading, and share your link so that we –the other New Beginnings participants– can stop by your blog and encourage you!

Important! … It would be absolutely great if you could visit at least ONE other participant’s blog  on Wednesdays and leave a comment on their post to share some encouragement for their efforts! Show your support! That’s what this event is all about — standing by each other to finally reach our goals!

  1. Write 1000 words or more per day. Often more now. I’m really enjoying this.
  2. Read at least 100 books this year. I’ve read 22 books now and am going for at least 25 before the end of the month. Since I still have Master and Commander to finish, plus The Time of Singing and another TBR book, plus one for the Social Justice Challenge, I should have more than enough material: it’s just a matter of getting the time!
  3. Post at least twice a week in this blog. Done and done!
  4. Dazzle my professors with my research essays. My proposals are due by 31 March so I am determined to have them handed in by the end of this week.
  5. Brush up on my languages. I think I may drop this. I can’t seem to get organized. Damn.
  6. Get a job. Waiting for my first review before I become a fully-fledged staff member. Nerve-wracking!
  7. Learn to drive. Getting there, getting there.

  1. What with all you’ve got going on I’m not surprised you haven’t got time for languages! If one of them is French, though, there are two sites which provide a 5-minutes-a-day lesson. The first is Daily French Pod – you have to pay to see all the content but there is stuff every day for free:

    The other one is French Word-a-Day – you can get a daily email focusing on one French word.

    Hope you enjoy The Time of Singing as much as I did.
