Guysssss I didn’t even die! Airsoft will not be my cause of death—or at least, not yet. 😉 And so I can be here today to tell you all…
Happy Canada Day! And in a few days, Independence Day! I still can’t believe it’s July already. Summer is going by quickly!
So, I promised you all an update on what I’ve accomplished this week. After that, I’m going to name off my goals for the month of July, because I think that’ll keep me accountable if I know I have to admit to everyone I failed. 😉
Onto the goals of last week!
1. Memorize Romans 12
Ok yeah I did not accomplish this one… *coughs* I started and got a few verses down, but I was NOT as focused on it as I should’ve been. This goal will get carried on to this month’s, and then I can spend more time on it! And if I don’t, I need you all to attack me with messages and keep me accountable. Not kidding.
2. Crochet another teddy bear
Here’s my new little baby:
Any name suggestions?
3. Practice Morse Code
Well, kinda accomplished. Not as much as I would’ve liked, but I did do some. So I guess… half-accomplished? I’ll need to work on that some more!
4. Get beta readers for The Healing Pain (and change the title)
Mission accomplished! The Healing Pain (yes, I decided that I liked the title) has gone through beta readers and is now entered into the contest! I don’t know when the results come in for the winner, but I don’t mind not winning. It was a fun story to write, plus my beta readers were AWESOME!
5. Play airsoft with my brothers
Heh… heh… um, yes I did. And I’m here, in the flesh.
Well I guess not the flesh since this is a blog but I am actually still alive. Or… maybe not… It was super hot and sweaty in all our gear, and the mosquitoes were having a feast, but other than that, it was…
And I let my brothers shoot me twice in the back to see what it felt like, which actually wasn’t so bad. So far, no welts.
We looked pretty stupid—or at least, I did—but I did NOT want to get shot. Especially in the face. Our masks… *dies laughing* But it was fun.
So I got some of my goals done! It was a fun week, for sure. I’m still deciding what to do with that teddy bear, but I suppose something will come up.
On to my goals for the month of July!
1. Write 100 words of Oxygen every day
I think this is doable!
2. Read 5 books
I’m not sure exactly if I’ll be able to do this. We’ll see!
3. Finish that huge puzzle
It’s big… for me. I’m gonna need to recruit my mom for this one! But I think I can do it in a month.
4. Write 2 short stories
Me: Yeah! Short, right? I can do this. I can keep it short.
Also me: *smirks* Oh, shoooooort?
Me: *nervous laughter* Yeah, short.
Also me: Just like you kept Oxygen short? At 43,000 words? That kind of short?
Me: Go away.
5. Finish Farmer Boy with my mom
We started this so long ago, but haven’t finished it yet. That’ll change!
6. Crochet 2 teddy bears
Why not? It’s so fun, and it gives me something to do during audiobooks.
7. Spend 2 hours on Duolingo
I’ve been keeping up my streak, but not spending much time on it! So, Spanish, here I come! ¡Cuidado!
8. Brainstorm what courses to take for Grade Twelve
Hip. Hip. Hooray. Because I absolutely LOVE planning my future. Because I know exactly what I’m gonna do when I graduate.
Ok, but seriously, how am I ever going to plan my future!? It’s so hard!
Anyway, gotta do that sometime, so may as well be this month.
That’s it for now! For those of you who read to the end of this long post, congratulations. You were with me until the end. 😉
Have a great week, everybody! May the Lord be with you and keep you and make His face shine upon you.
