New Beginnings Wednesday (May 19)
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!
My goal: to try to be more consistent, and finish what I start. In particular…
- Write 1000 words or more per day. Enjoying planning my novel, if a little intimidated by it!
- Read at least 100 books this year. I’m currently reading five books at once, and have finished 32/100.
- Dazzle my professors with my research essays. My appointment with my supervisor went well. Apparently I am not as behind as I thought I was, and he was happy to give me some tips and nod his head at what I was doing, so. All is well.
- Brush up on my languages. French class was difficult this week. Still trying to get to my Latin.
- Turn The Black Sheep into a functioning (popular?) blog. I was doing quite well with this until I had three days where I didn’t post at all. Oops! Will have to put a bit more effort in for the rest of the month.
- Start exercising more. Still doing Yoga while I look for another form of exercise that I can actually enjoy. I haven’t made much progress, but it’s definitely within my mental scope, so I’ll get there eventually.
