2021 Quarter 2 Goals

2021 Quarter 2 Goals

I don’t usually, at least lately, make quarterly goals, but it is something I want to get back to. I think it helps me focus in on and define what is priority for me. Making them quarterly instead of monthly, also helps with some flexibility when one month goes sideways and things just go crazy inserting themselves in to your day and taking up your time. The quarterly timeframe just works well for me because it’s also not trying to see too far in to the future. Annual just seems to be too hard to stick to because something will change, or something happens and my priorities change.

Sunday Post #81: BEDA and More

Here we are in 2021, and I still haven’t really been reading. I have a certification I’m trying to get through work and have been reading for that. It’s not fun reading for this certification. It does though, make me want to read for fun. I’ve started a few books and once again have multiple…

These Books Will Self-Destruct | 2021

These Books Will Self-Destruct | 2021

I’ve seen Booktubers do something like this, but I’m changing it. On this list, yes are books I’ve had on my TBR for a while, but additionally, these are all books I’ve picked up, started reading, then put down for one reason or another and never picked up again.

Sunday Post #80: Things be tense

I can’t stop myself from watching the news, and then this helpless feeling comes over me. I live in the United States, in the state of Michigan. Our states, more and more feel like the Divided States, more than the United States. I remember in school learning, or at least being told, the founders totally…

Sunday Post #79: Basement update

We’ve been busy on the basement project. We almost have a new, to code, gas line in for the dryer – we ran into an unforseen issue with the previous pipe. I hung, all by myself, one sheet of drywall. (Very proud of myself for that since I don’t have a lot of experience hanging…

November Wrap Up & December TBR

November Wrap Up & December TBR

Well, as mentioned in this week’s Sunday Post, I haven’t finished a single book in November. I did listen to a few audiobooks, but they were books I’ve listened to at least a dozen times before and didn’t really pay attention to. I mostly used them for noise. For some reason, nothing really is calling…

Sunday Post #78: Worst Reading Slump

I am currently in the worst reading slump ever, since I found my enjoyment of reading. I don’t even know for sure what has caused the slump. I don’t remember the last time I actually finished a book. I think it was A Song of Wraiths and Ruin by Roseanne A. Brown sometime this past…

Sunday Post #77: NaNo FAIL…again.

Hello! It’s been a while. I feel like I’m really bad at being consistent here. Okay, I don’t think there is any “feel like” about it; I’m bad at posting consistently here. My lack of posting consistently probably has something to do with why I am failing NaNoWriMo. I just can’t say no to people, and have too much to do myself. Combine this with the longest reading slump I’ve ever had, and we have a lack of posting. I’m hoping to change this sometime in the near future – that’s for both the reading slump and the lack of posting.

October Wrap Up & November TBR

October Wrap Up & November TBR

October was not a great month for me. I didn’t finish any of the books I was planning to read. Let’s hope November will be a bit better since I’m keeping the TBR a bit smaller due to NaNoWriMo.
