New Beginnings Wednesday (March 24)
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…
- First — post your list of New Years’ Resolutions in a post at your blog.
- Second — every 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!
- Write 1000 words or more per day. Not only am I enjoying this and frequently going past the 1000-word goal, it’s also reached the point where I can’t relax into my evening without getting my writing done first. I think I’m addicted…
- Read at least 100 books this year. Still going on The Time of Singing and Master and Commander. I finally have Essential Dykes to Watch Out For, which is a great read and keeps distracting me from what I should be doing. I am also determined to finish The Woman Who Walked into Doors and Brideshead Revisited by the end of the month as well, so…I’d better get reading!
- Post at least twice a week in this blog. Done and done!
- Dazzle my professors with my research essays. Nearly there with the proposals.
- Brush up on my languages. Good news! I’ve found a local college that does French classes for the general public, starting in early May, so I’m going to sign up for that. If I can try to work on a bit of Latin as well, so that I can get started at the right level next year, that should be it as far as my languages are concerned. Excellent!
- Get a job. I am now a fully-fledged member of staff. Yay!
- Learn to drive. Getting there, getting there.
