Last week was so hectic. Between homeschooling and my growing workload for school, I didn’t have enough time to finish even one book. Since I wasn’t able to finish a book, I didn’t really have anything to blog about. The end of the semester is over a month away so I think it’s time to change the way I blog.
Partly inspired by Bryan’s idea to unplug twice a week and the blogging styles of both Bryan and Deb, I’ve decided to change the way I blog. This will still be a book blog but in a pretty informal way. This blog is going to have the feeling of a commonplace book. I plan on sharing my library loot, favorite passages from what I’m reading, photos, book reviews, and anything bookish I can think of. It takes the pressure off of trying to constantly review books when I barely have time to finish them. I’ve also decided to try unplugging at least once a week. I’ll probably unplug on Saturdays and Tuesdays.
I’m borrowing the format of the rest of this post from the lovely Kim (Sophisticated Dorkiness).
Currently// 9:25 a.m.
Place// At my desk. It’s the only place to get any work done right now.
Eating// Half a pancake. I really don’t have an appetite right now.
Drinking// Coffee of course.
Reading// I’m reading but I’m not finishing anything. I’m currently in the middle of P.S. Be Eleven by Rita Williams-Garcia.
Watching// The Kitchen Cousins on HGTV. My family loves this network.
Listening// I was trying to listen to The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving by Jonathon Evison but I can’t get the audiobook to work on my phone.
Blogging// Who knows? I’m really going to try to get my review of Half-Blood Blues done this week.
Promoting// Bloggers Recommend, a monthly newsletter. Every month bloggers recommend some of their favorite upcoming reads. If you’re looking for fantastic reads, this is the newsletter to subscribe to. Plus, I’m on the advisory board.
Writing// In my new art journal. I love having a new journal in my hands to write and paint in.
Researching// I have several experiments due next month so it’s probably time for me to start doing some research.
Hating// Meat right now. My family and I are tired of eating meat so I need to start looking at vegetarian cookbooks. Any recommendations?
Avoiding// I was avoiding homework yesterday but now that’s probably what I’ll spend the day doing.
Anticipating// The end of the semester.
