A girl and her cat take on the world with nothing more than a cup of tea and a good book and enough dreams to fill the universe.
Today is the first day of Nerdlution Round Two! Nerdlution has me more excited about improving myself than the new year. Not only that, but Nerdlution has also afforded me the opportunity to connect with my friends, both in and outside of the United States. My Irish boyfriend and I have set two goals for ourselves as we get set to join in for round two today.
We are going to read thirty five books. I know from my adolescent lit class that this is definitely possible, so I’m beginning to flex those #bookaday muscles! I have really missed reading as an adult and I find it is too easy to get bogged down with “I’ll read later” when I know I won’t. Yes, I am busy, but I can spare the time to finish thirty five books and boy am I stoked! Boyfriend expressed some reluctance at this, but that’s why we have the buddy system. I work better when someone other than myself is holding me accountable. I’m there for him with this reading goal, he’s there for me for our second goal. I also just like encouraging people to read more. Thirty five books is going to be a challenge, but it’s totally achievable.
Here are the books I want to read:
(Check in next Monday for the next ten on my list and my Nerdlution update.)
We are going to go for a walk/run/out to the gym at least three times a week. My walking to school isn’t going to count. My walking to work isn’t going to cut it. It has to be a separate outing that’s all about the walk/run/gym and it has to be for at least thirty minutes. I’m thinking about my days and thinking “when the hell am I going to have time for this?” I am reluctant. Boyfriend is not. This is his easy goal like thirty five books are mine. This is why I have the buddy system otherwise these would only be words on your computer screen and I would never follow through. I still might not, but at least I have a better chance.
So, ready, set, go! Tell me your Nerdlution goals!
Push your mind, get inspired & be on top of the world.
