2019 Reading Goals!

My goal isn’t really ambitious. It’s 3 books a week. I can do that. Easily. I read 206 books last year!

But my goal this year is to read more than just romance novels.

Some self-help. Some basic fantasy. I’m going to try all the genres.

Okay, not really, but I am going to try and read something besides romance novels.

I’m currently reading (along with an actual romance novel) “” by Ryder Carroll.

I love my bullet journal. I don’t do a traditional one in a book (I do have books. LOTS of books. Several ones, including the actual that came out this year). But I have a , instead. I got mine from Michaels, and I love it. I can have more than one, and switch them out as I get bored with the color or the design. I have a for my A5. That’s the size I prefer to work with.

Okay, my ADHD is kicking in and now I’m focusing on something different. I was explaining a book I was reading. We’re talking about books here. The planner talk will come later, I promise.

So, my goal is small, but I plan on making CHANGES to what I read. Hey look! That word of the year! You saw it in yesterday’s post too!

As you can see, the goal isn’t too out there. 2014, I read over 300 books. 2015, I don’t think I even DID a challenge. 2015 was a weird year for me. I honestly don’t even remember MOST of 2015 :O

2016 was the full year of me working. I was still only technically part-time, but I remember working 10-15 days in a row. I remember having an “OT battle” with coworkers.

2017 was the year I went full-time. 2017 was the year both kids were starting school during the time Josh would be home.

  1. Oh. 2018. I barely made my goal of 200. I chose several short small books to reach that goal. I read like 4 or 5 books in one day during that time. I didn’t feel like I cheated but I did feel like I could have chosen different books and just dealt with not hitting 200 books for the year!

So, 2019 will be year of making changes to my reading habits. I will read what I enjoy, but I will attempt to branch out. I shared a link on my Facebook (personal, but I will share it right now on my FB blog page).

What are YOUR reading goals?

Two weeks

I have only worked out once since the new year started but I have been
working on changing my diet which has helped with bloating and the like. I
have only gained about a pound or two and when I was fluctuating ten pounds
sometimes, that is definitely an improvement.

Election Times and Discussion

With the addition of an election tab on Plurk, there has been some bitching and complaining that it shouldn’t be on there. Honestly, I see the point. No matter where you are, the election of a US President really does affect you. Will the world be looking at McSame, or some sort of change?

This election is a big deal for me. I’m actually voicing my opinion and being quite vocal on it. I’m discussing it with friends and family. I’m not being timid and hiding my vote. For me, that’s a big thing. I’ve always usually been pretty quiet about it. This time around, I’m wanting the right person in office.

In case you haven’t figured it out, I want Barack Obama and Joe Biden leading my country. I do not want my health benefits taxed. I want my parents to be able to retire without having to get three jobs to survive. I want to buy a house, for god’s sake. I think, with Barack and Joe, I’ll have a shot at that.

I do not want Sarah Palin in office. I do not a woman who obviously hates other women and wants to take away their choice. I’m pro-life personally. I don’t think I could abort my own child, but to make that choice for someone else? Fuck no!! I refuse to do that. And her being behind McCain? One major strike against her. The man has voted down equal pay for equal work.

They’re both against equal rights for gay couples. This “don’t ask, don’t tell” bullshit is fucked up. You tell that you’re gay, and you can, and most likely will be booted from the military. How can that even remotely be considered acceptable.

And the bullshit claims that Barack is going to take away guns? WTF? He’s said that even if he wanted to, he couldn’t do it. Congress would never pass something like that. Hell, I think Joe would kick his ass if he tried. He just wants to toughen the requirements for them. Honestly, what the hell is the problem with that. Guns in the hands of criminals, and those with mental problems? Please do not let that continue to happen.

Remember, November 4th is your day to say “Enough is enough”, no matter who you’re voting for. Remember, though, that you have to register to vote! The last day in quite a few states is today. I know Indiana is one of them. Kansas is the 20th. Have you registered?
