Here’s what I’ve been up to in January:
I’m Currently . . .
Reading: The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt.
Watching: The only thing I’ve been watching lately is the Harry Potter movies. For some reason, re-watching them makes me really happy. I tried watching that Shadowhunters show, but it’s as cheesy as the books.
Stalking: Lately, I’ve been loving Outlandish Lit. Most of the blogs I follow just review whatever YA book is super-hyped right now, so I appreciate that Julianne has a unique taste in books. She also reviews a lot of the books that I have on my TBR list.
Planning: My reading list for February. I want to read books by authors who are not from the US. I’m determined to read more international authors this year.
Making: Shelf space. I’ve been clearing out a lot of my old books to make room for new ones.
Stocking up on: Nothing! I’ve been doing the opposite this month and getting rid of things that I don’t need.
Wishing for: The ability to read faster. There are so many good books coming out this year. I’ve been adding more to my TBR list almost every day. It’s insane.
Enjoying: Getting my schoolwork done. I think I’ve accomplished a lot with my research and writing in the past few months. It feels like everything is moving quickly in the right direction.
Trying: To exercise regularly. I want to be in good enough shape to go on long hikes this summer. I’ve been spending a lot of time walking uphill on the treadmill.
Eating: I’ve been trying to eat healthy. It hasn’t always worked because pizza is life.
Goal setting: I have a huge project due at the end of February. My biggest goal right now is to finish that.
Learning: That I work best with a schedule. I can get a lot done if I stick to a schedule.
