August Update – 2016 Goals Check-in
I’m going to keep this short and sweet today. 🙂 My life has been a little crazy this summer, and it’s only getting crazier. I’m in two weddings at the end of the month/beginning of next on back-to-back weekends, and everything is catching up to me.
TOTY 24 Goals: Write Every Day – not happening so far. Between work, family events, and getting everything ready for the weddings, I’m lucky if I have a few hours to sit and read, much less have an hour to sit down and write my reviews for Curio Street Reads. I was already late on my review for this week, and while my review for next week should go up on Tuesday, it probably won’t go up until afternoon instead of the normal 10am posting time. Unless by some miracle I gain an hour of quality time in which to write the review before then. Posting here should resume a more normal schedule in September, and I should be able to dive back into my novel around then as well.
Apply to Full Time Jobs – Also on hold until after the weddings. Having never been in a wedding before, I clearly did not realize how much work goes into them. It’s a little insane over here.
Apply to Grad School – I’m supposed to be studying for the GRE. But as I have zero time, I’ll have to pick this back up in September. Hopefully, I can take the test in October/November so I can get my application(s) in on time to be considered for a scholarship or fellowship or something that would help me pay for this degree.
Basically, everything is on hold until these weddings are over. I’m super excited for them! I love my friends and I am so happy they asked me to be a part of their special days. It makes my heart smile that they’ve found their people and are making it official.
At the same time, I can’t wait to get back to the grind and write some awesome stuff for you guys! Writing makes me crazy happy and fulfilled, and I miss doing it. See you in September!
Until Next Time, Amanda
