May 14th. I love it.

What. A. Week.

First up this week, reading marathons. I love it. I accidentally read a 500 page book yesterday, but I honestly couldn’t put it down. “As Old as Time” is a twist on Beauty and the Beast and it was wonderful. I set out to read 100 pages but then time got away from me and I realized it was 6pm and I hadn’t eaten anything all day. I can’t wait to read the one about Sleeping Beauty, “Once Upon a Dream.”

I love it.

Next up, puzzles. I love it. I went to the dollar store today with the intention of getting a new scoop for the litter box, but I couldn’t find one. After browsing (so dangerous in a dollar store) I walked out of there with 3 new puzzles and a bunch of candy for my future movie theater trips. 2 of the puzzles are 3D; one of the Avengers’ plane and one of the Ninja Turtles’ Party Wagon. I even got a Guardians of the Galaxy one, but I didn’t do it today. Next weekend? Yes!

I love it.

Finally, getting a desk! I love it. I’ve applied for grad school and in preparation for hopefully being accepted and then needing a place to do homework, my friend, Celeste, was nice enough to give me a desk she had at her house. I’m using it right now, too! I’ve been working on the floor since I moved into my apartment so I’m hoping this desk will give me more motivation to write because it will be comfortable (and professional). I scored a really nice chair at Office Depot today, too.

I love it. It’s great. Everything’s great.

I love it.

Resolutions for 2017

My sister and I are all about reaching goals. Every Sunday, we text each other what our goals for the week are. Usually it involves how many times we want to work out and making sure we wait until Friday to get fancy coffee from Dunkin Donuts or Krispy Kreme before work. I am usually one to write down my yearly resolutions, but this year I want to make it public so people can call me on it.

Here are my resolutions for 2017:

  1. I’m going to read at least 25 books.
  2. I’m going to work out at least 3 times per week.
  3. I’m going to get back to the weight that I was when Bud and I started dating.
  4. I will not buy things impulsively and I’ll save all the money I can.
  5. I will not eat out unless I’m with friends for special occasions.
  6. I will write in my blog at least twice a week.
  7. I will finish editing “Henry Halpert vs. Darkness” and “Jake and the Search for a Hero”
  8. I’m going to pass my PLT and also my Praxis II in English.
  9. I’m going to read or finish the following book series:
    • The Chronicles of Narnia
    • Star Wars: The Original Trilogy
    • The Lord of the Rings
  10. I will create a habit of happiness.

What are your resolutions?
