After bringing in the New Year with Cards Against Humanity, I knew I wanted to blog about the upcoming 365 days. Then I waited. Then I procrastinated. Then I started my first graduate class and cleaned the new house to keep avoiding creating a new blog post. Then, after twelve days, I figured I put it off long enough.
Many of my recent life-changing events have happened adjacent to each other, at a pace faster than I was expecting. I’ve heard that’s how life can be. I moved out and started the new year under my own roof, and last Monday, I started my first graduate class. I have a long road ahead of me.
After Tangled came out, I would always hum along to the song “When Will My Life Begin?” And, lately, I don’t feel the need to sing that song to myself anymore. (Now it’s Exodus ’04 by Utada Hikaru, but I digress.)
This year seems to be very promising. Aside from the victories and celebrations of my personal life, I have set my Goodreads Reading Challenge to fifty books, and my first chapbook of poetry will be published later in the year.
There are many things I should probably do, but end up forgetting about completely, like doing the dishes. Resolutions, and making them, fall into this category. I prefer the gentler term, “goals.”
Goals for 2015:
Finish the novella I started writing in September
- Finish my 2014 NaNoWriMo novel
Participate in the April Camp NaNoWriMo
- Participate in the July Camp NaNoWriMo
- Participate in NaNoWriMo 2015
Reach my Goodreads Reading Challenge goal (50 books)
- Pass this year’s graduate classes!
- Plan 2016 wedding!!!
I’m ready for you, 2015.
