My February is basically ‘Challenge Month’

Last month I posted my list of goals for the year and there were only six things on that list: read 3 books a month, write in my Q&A A Day For Writers journal, practice yoga, play ultimate, eat healthy and learn about chakras, meditation, etc.

These “goals” were more like “things I want to do this year” and I wanted to be pretty chill about them because I didn’t want to pressure myself. Anyway, a month into the new year I realized that some of these goals will really have to take a backseat if I focus on one or two because that’s exactly what happened.

Have you discovered your Patronus yet?

I love the Harry Potter series. I mean, who doesn’t, right? Well, actually, I can name a few peeps who don’t really care about Harry Potter as much as most of us do – I mean, what?? – but, you know, they’re entitled to their own thing and I’m not up in arms about it. ANYWAY, so yesterday I got the email from Pottermore about finding out your Patronus and of course I had to go see what mine is!

The productivity apps I use right now

Some of you may know that I don’t have a regular job and freelance some of the time. It’s not so bad but it can be a challenge to be productive. Thank the tech gods that there are cool productivity apps I can use to do my work. Today I’m listing them down just because. Hah. :)

Watch eeeet: Stories I wish I had written [contains stuff about old movies]

There are times when you encounter a story that’s so trippy and interesting and totally something you dig, and you just can’t help but wish that you wrote that story or that you can write something as close to fantastic as that story. I mean, you know what I mean, right? It could be a book or a movie – anything really – that makes you wish you thought of it first.

I haven’t been much of a reader for the last year or so, so these fantastic stories I’m referring to are actually movies that I’ve seen in the last few months. Just a warning, this post may contain some spoilers so if you haven’t seen any of these films – do a quick scroll, hurry! – and don’t want to know what happens in these movies, I suggest you turn away from this post now. Turn away, friend, and save yourself from, er, spoilers about old movies. Amsorrehhh..

I’m a sucky blogger, but check out these cool things!

Photo from Death to the Stock Photo

I really do suck as a blogger. Earlier this year I said I would roll out an updated version of my Going Freelance series and I haven’t done it. GAH. I’m really sorry about that, folks. I do intend to update that thing this year, but I just haven’t been in an “updating” mood for the past few weeks. In fact, I haven’t been in a “writing” mood for the past few MONTHS, which means I’ve been ridiculously unproductive work-wise. I haven’t been reading much either. I read a few books in January, but only read one in Feb and I am now behind my monthly reading goal of two books plus a classic. Yes, I’m a sucky reader, too.

And that’s not all. I haven’t played ultimate in months! I have this crazy eye thing right now. My left eye basically has limited movement and it causes me to have double vision when I look to my left. It’s crazy and it’s being treated and all that, but I haven’t been playing ultimate because I’d be totally useless on the field with this sucky vision thing.

Of workspaces, devious adorable puppies, and more

Faaaak, I just finished this long post, published it, decided to edit it and add a featured image, and it frickin’ disappears. So I had to write it all over again. Boo.

Anyway, I was going to do this post yesterday for What’s On Your Mind Wednesday, Also Known As Let Us Ramble About Stuff Day (it’s a real thing), but I didn’t get to finish it so it’s here, a day late. It’s a good time as any to ramble, I say.
