So I've been totally neglecting this blog, and only really got back around to writing and posting on it after being reinspired by Julie and Julia (not that I was about to give up blogging--I was just being lazy), and because I'm kind of bored right now.
Hopefully, I won't be so lazy to write up some posts and and reviews for you all! And yes, I am on summer vacation...which should mean that I WOULD get more time to post on here but actually doesn't...it means I slack off a lot and attempt to study for the SAT. (Yes, I'm asking for luck on the latter.) ;) Anywho, I feel like this summer vacation is going to be like some new year thing...hence, some resolutions. That is, if I can keep them. ;)
- Try to figure out a good blogging schedule, and STICK with it!
- READ. I have to finish all the books in my TBR pile before school starts. :P (In total, I have forty-seven books, two of which I've already finished only because I was almost done with them anyway. I'm almost done with another two though...so wish me luck! I may do a counter thing on my sidebar for it. I would LOVE you if you told me where I can make the best widget where I can do a sort of countdown thing showing how many books I've finished for my mini challenge.)
- WRITE. I'm absolutely determined to finish my book before summer ends. I'm aiming for 2K a day, a common NaNoWriMo goal I think. I'm hoping I can push myself to make this like NaNo, but more serious. Plus, I have more time and I'm a good ways into my WIP. (And yes, words cannot express how much I adore my book. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.)
- SAT prep, as stated before...
- Learn more guitar songs! Master them! (I really want to master "Goodbyes" by Savannah Outen, "Keep Holding On" by Avril Lavigne, "Kiss Me" by Sixpence None the Richer, "Goodbye Alice in Wonderland" by Jewel, among others, especially now that I have actual picks! w00t!)
- Learn more piano songs...properly. I'm absolutely determined to learn almost all of Regina Spektor's songs, and if I don't explode. Or implode. Maybe not really, but I'll be very, very frustrated. I at least have to get "Samson", "On the Radio", "Fidelity", "Eet", "Laughing With", "Dance Anthem of the 80s", "Ne Me Quitte Pas", "Two Birds", among others, solid. Okay, maybe at least a couple of those.
- Finally jot down some good songs. :P
- Exercise. Yeah. For some reason, putting that on here seems a bit of a TMI...oh well.
- Change up the layout a little. I might change the background to make it less spring-y and more summer-y, but if you guys notice, the static pages have kind of shifted around. See it?
- Chat with my pals on Skype and gmail! Guys, e-mail me or something!!!
This isn't possibly a little too much for my summer plate, is it? Just wish me luck on them all...especially the reading thing, and the writing thing, and the SAT thing. :P Oh, and I also have a tumblr, though I have no idea what to do with it. It'll mostly be a thing throwing out shameless plugs and quotes and songs and random thoughts once in awhile, but maybe eventually I'll figure out some good use for it.
What are you all doing this summer? :D
