Summer Goals

I have done so well in July with posting everyday. However, today I sat down to write and found myself with a bad case of writer's block. I am not a fan of writer's block - it always seems to hit at the worst moments - when you actually want to write! (On the other hand, ideas always seem to hit at the worst moments too - shower, driving, etc.)

I debated what to write and then it hit me! There was a blog post I wanted to do a while back that I kept skipping because new ideas kept coming. What a perfect time to pull out that blog post!

Back in June, I created a summer bucket list. I knew I would need things to keep me busy and distracted during a long summer with very few concrete plans. So, I shared this with you:

 
Today, with about 20 days left in my summer vacation, we're going to revisit that list and see how many things I have accomplished!
 
1. Move - check!
 
2. Decorate new apartment - double check! (I just need to share it on the blog!)
 
3. Moments to Teach blog - Go visit it here: Moments to Teach   I have been keeping up with it as well.
 
4. Write a novel - Eh...working on it? Okay, I need another swift kick to get me back on this one. I have written 10,000+ words to date in the month of July. I want to write more.
 
5. Try out new recipes - I haven't tried as many as I'd like, but I have been trying them here and there.
 
6. Photography - I've been keeping up with my Capture It! challenge. My next step is to branch more into freelance.
 
7. Read three or more books - Beautiful Redemption, Catching Fire, & Mockingjay   That's two series I can now provide reviews for. The most recent book I've started on is Graceling by Kristin Cashore.
 
8. Classroom d├ęcor - I'm working on it daily. You can read about it at my teaching blog.
 
9. Stolen Moments blog - You tell me? How am I doing with it?

Well, I'm off to craft, read, or write. I haven't decided which yet! Hope your week started off well.
