So, because I am apparently incapable of accomplishing anything without making a list first, I’ve decided to bullet-point the month of August to within an inch of its life. Here are my plans:
reviserewrite a paper I wrote for a history seminar and transform it into a paper for english
- finish the following books (if I make it through these, I will have pre-read a decent amount of books for this coming semester):
- Vanity Fair
- Jane Eyre
- The Moonstone
- unpack/organize books
- finish knitting something (anything!)
- take a day/weekend trip with Apparent Dip that does not include work of any sort or even visiting other people. Yup, that’s right, a vacation-y type trip, just the two of us (the last time we had a vacation of any sort like this was our honeymoon 2 years ago, which happened 3 years after we were married).
- read something that isn’t for school (and try not feel guilty about it)
This may not seem like much, but given that I have a tough time getting through plans for a single day (i.e. it’s now 12:30 in the afternoon and I have yet to shower or get dressed), this list might be an uphill battle! I’m actually trying to get myself motivated to finish the book unpacking as Apparent Dip comes home tomorrow afternoon and I don’t want to reveal the extent to which I have gone over to the dark side of slacker-dom (as if he doesn’t already know!).
