It's time

It is time to hold myself accountable to my goals.

When I turned 19, nine months ago, i made a list of 19 things i wanted to accomplish while i was 19. And i have been slowly making progress, i have crossed a few off. But there are still a lot that need to get done.

I don't want to say that i've given up on some, but i have accepted the fact that some of them just aren't possible anymore. For example: go to orlando to see Harry Potter world. That won't be happening before my birthday but it will be happening this august, so i'm okay with not having that one done yet.

Then there's "Write in my journal for 6 months straight" well in order to get that one done i needed to be writing every day since october. And needless to say i have not been. But i am making more of an effort to write, and that's good enough for me.

And then this one: Read 52 books.

Now this one makes me very sad. I love reading, but ever since summer ended i haven't been able to read. I'm in a reading rut! Who knew there was such thing? The only book that has really grabbed me is "Matched" but i haven't been able to finish it yet.

So why am i writing this? I am going to try and make progress on some of these things. I know im not going to be able to read 39 books in 91 days, because that means one book every 2 days, and let me tell you that is impossible with school and work.

BUT i am going to make more of an effort to read, which means putting the computer away and reading before bed. It means grabbing those books off my shelf that have been sitting there for months and months. It means reading on the bus, or when i have a spare minute.

I will do this. I can do this.

So I am now initiating Project Read More. I can't specifically say how many books i will be able to read. I can't promise a number, i can say i will put more effort in, i will try harder, and in a few weeks time we'll see where i am, and how much i can get done!

  1. I need to join this club, too! I love to read but never seem to make the time to actually do it lately.
