- I started a new book. I've had it on my shelf for a while now and I've finally opened it. My book for the week will be Kathryn Stockett's "The Help". I saw the movie and loved it. When I saw that it was a book, I decided that if I liked the movie, the book must be phenomenal. Thus far I have not been disappointed.
- I slept. I slept in, I lounged, I was entirely unproductive and I loved every minute.
- I wrote. I write every day. And I'm not just talking about my blog or things for school. I usually do a bit of creative writing as well, even if it's only 100 words here or there. Today I got to write a more significant chunk. I enjoyed that too.
As you can see, I do not have lofty goals. I'm very much a simple pleasures kind of girl. I was determined to do whatever I wanted today because I won't be so free throughout the week. I have a lot of grading to do and a lot of work to do on the journal I work for. In between all that, I want to pretend I have a life by hanging out with a few friends that are still hanging around town.
Still, I think I'll accomplish my fourth goal tomorrow. Goal number four is baking. This year I find that I don't have the time or energy to bake. Which is annoying to me because it's excellent stress relief. My parents however are thrilled as are their waistlines. The only reason my mother has temporarily changed her tune is that there are bananas going funky on the counter and that means one thing: banana bread.
Holy crap... I'll also get to watch my Sunday shows (The Good Wife and Once Upon a Time) guilt free. Nice!
The reasons I've listed also happen to be reasons I need to either make a ton of money from writing a book or marry rich. As far as I know, there is no job on the face of the earth that will enable me to do these things for pay. Or... I could do both... Now that's a plan worth hatching!
