Well, for those that don’t know… writing is my passion. I love love love writing. That’s why you will probably never get an email from me that is less than, oh… a page?!?! So anyways, with my class being over and me not taking any classes this semester, I decided I didn’t just want to sit idly and let *work* be my entire life. I decided I was going to do 2 things that I love and 1 thing that I want to love for the semester.
Write: I love to write. When I was young for some reason I wanted any life but the one I had so I would write stories, novels even, about different people, families, lives and I loved it. People who read my stories also liked them and all my life since then every English teacher I ever had continuously instilled that confidence into my writing abilities. So, I loved writing, stories, letters, and now I love writing blogs. It’s a great way to put my thoughts and energy into something constructive even if I’m the only one who actually reads my site. It is also helping me rediscover my writing abilities. I haven’t taken an actual English class in over a year, the last one I took was American Lit. So, I want to brush up on my writing. Plus, it keeps my brain from turning to mush while I’m not in school. So, you’ll be seeing this site being updated pretty often from here on out, or atleast that’s my plan!
Read: I love to read. I use to be able to pretty much down atleast 2 books per week. (I admittedly read each Harry Potter book that came out in a day.) Well, the last few years I haven’t gotten hardly any reading done other than for school. I read the Harry Potter books when they came out, 3 of the 4 Twilight novels (*gags*), and a few little best seller novels in between that I would pick up at Target while shopping. So, I want to start reading more again. And I have a few books in mind but am always open to other suggestions! Got any? Please though, no self help religious books. I’m not that desperate.
Craft: I want to start crafting. Something I have never been into, mainly because I was constantly around crafts my entire life. My mom is an amazingly crafty person and was and still is always working on some project. I don’t know why I never took an interest as a kid. Well, I want to start. I have a few ideas already. I’m making a great present for my mother-in-law’s birthday in 2 weeks! I can’t wait to have it all put together. Anyways, and once P90X is over I would like to try my hand at baking. I found this GREAT website (bakerella.blogspot.com) that has totally and completely inspired me! There are so many recipes I want to try. But I’ve decided only 1 every 2 weeks so I don’t ruin my new nicely chiseled “figure”. Plus, I think 2 weeks is enough time in between to have the last bakery item all gobbled up!
So, that explains the abundance of blogs!
