Early Resolutions

I've been thinking the last couple days about my New Year's resolution. I could only come up with two very attainable and sustainable ones: Read more, write more.

Reading: Read more for school (yeah, I say that every semester, but I have hope!) and read more books that I want to read too.
Writing: Write more for school (like try harder...), write more on my blogs, write more on my stories.

I had a goal at the beginning of this past semester. I told Brandon, "If I write so-and-so amount of pages a day/week, I can finish a book by next May!" Brandon responds with, "Awesome!" Well, I have written close to no pages... I have a myriad of excuses, but it all boils down to distractions. There's always something better to do! Yet I'm constantly thinking of my stories and different plot ideas... I just won't write them down! So writing is a good plan.

Blogs are good too. Brandon leaves in 3 weeks and 1 day for about 9 months, so I thought for a New Year's Resolution that working on my blog would be a good idea. I'll be able to talk to him a lot, but I'll still be alone at home without anyone to tell my random thoughts to. Now it's my blog. And it's a good way to think through things as well.

I was going to start this on January 1st of the new year, mostly because my OCD loves having things start orderly! But I'm breaking it (also I couldn't stop thinking about it, maybe I'm giving in to my OCD?), and starting today.

I decided to not have the titles as dates anymore. That's in my blog anyway. Now the titles will have more descriptive... titles? I think I'm done typing for now. ;)
