Ever since I got a job a couple months back things have been changing and I am still trying to balance everything that I want to do in my life on a daily bases.
First and foremost, the blog:
I have been reading a ton lately because I have been keeping up with my challenge to read a book a day and as proud as I am my. Blog has become a swamp of review after review and as much as I love writing reviews that is not what this blog is all about and I am going to make sure things start going back to where I want them to be. Plus, I have not been remotely as envolver in the blogging community as I want to be and I am going to work on changing that as well.
So my new proposed blogging schedule is this:
In the morning: Reviews (Whatever I read the day before gets reviewed the next day in the morning)
At Night: Random posts that could be anything: writing, discussions, poetry, top ten posts, inspirational posts, Interviews, tags and anything that I feel like posting about at the time. These are the kinds of posts that were at the heart of my blog The Book Raven not too long ago and I miss the spontaneity of it.
Any time I can: checking out other bloggers posts, commenting, and generally supporting the community that I love. I don’t do nearly enough of this and I miss it dearly.
I am just starting to exercise again and I want to make it a morning habit. If I can commit to even 3 times a week I will be happier for it. I have been starting to gain a little weight and i want to feel healthier and stronger then ever before.
I want to do my best to devote some time everyday to learning a language other then my own. I hate only knowing English fluently and I want to expand my knowledge. First and foremost I wish to become fluent in Spanish (which I should already be fluent in already) and I also want to have at least a working understanding of Japanese (I watch enough anime that the culture is utterly fascinating to me and I really want to travel there someday)
And most importantly, Writing:
My dream for myself is to become and author and write books that I can be proud of. I want to write something inspiring and full of hope and everything that I am. I want to write many books and I dream of being a published author. However, I do not write nearly as much as I should be (most of the time, other then blog posts, not at all) but I am slowly starting to change that. I have a book idea for something that I can’t wait to flesh out (which sits right now at about 4,000 words) and recently the ideas for it have been soaring and it has started to become something I would be dying to read if I saw it on my shelves.
So in order to motivate myself (and make it so that my time is stretched towards some sort of robotic efficiency) I am joining in on Nanowrimo this year. That’s right, the thing that I’ve tried and failed in Camp and the real deal probably over ten times now. I’m going for it one more time. Every time I say I am going to win this time I believe I will (something I say every time I try this but I digress). The book I will be writing is a Sci-fi novel I have talked about before on the blog, but since the ideas inception I have chosen a completely new direction for the novel and I gotta say I am really proud of it already. I am going to try not to talk about it too much till it is complete, but I know that drafting it is going to be a huge mess, but a ton of fun. (Plus the truth is I am terrified of writing it, but now that I’ve been plotting it and getting ideas for it for the past two months or so, I feel like it’s time to really put words on the page).
Anyway, my biggest challenge for all my goals in managing my time and writing 2,000 words, reading a book a day, writing blog posts, exercising, working, and learning Spanish and Japanese on a daily bases sounds almost impossible, but a majority of these things I’ve already been managing from day to day, so I wanna see if I can make all these this a reality for a better me, mentally, physically, and in a lot of ways spiritually.
Thanks for reading! What are your goals and aspirations? Is there something you want to do daily for a better you?
-Till next time!
