Got to Get it Together

This past week I have felt more productive than I have in months. I've been fighting to stave off this general lethargy that tends to come over me and has me feel defeated. To help myself I have done a bunch of things in the name of Getting My Shit Together™:
  • Checked out a plethora of books
  • Set up a reading schedule
  • Have written down most of the important dates I need to look at for the coming months
  • Began taking care of some overdue optical business
I know this is basically a self-serving post, but it's serving a purpose. It's an excuse to write something, even if it only really matters to me. It's a place to look so I can remind myself that I can get organized and I do not need to feel defeated all the damn time. Also, props to you folks who have been incredibly supportive of me these past few months.

Upcoming agenda:
  • Massive top to bottom cleaning of my apartment
  • Register for a fall class (Structure of English)
  • Officially change major 
  • Lots and lots and lots of reading
I'm sure there's more on that list, but at the moment I cannot remember what. Hello Monday morning!

A Great Cause...

I just wanted to draw your attention to something. Those of us at NU have been doing our part to fight human trafficking for a few years. Some of us read a lot of web-comics.

Well now those two things have combined.

The Comic Creator's Alliance is taking donations and splitting them for Love 146 and GraceHaven. Your donation gets you a wallpaper of various web-comic characters.

For more information on this issue, check the links section of Comic Creator's Alliance website.
Do your part to help end both modern day slavery and rape for profit.

Calling All Readers

I have made two resolutions this year that have an impact each other.

1. Read more
2. Write more

I am having a bit of an issue getting started on these. I have been thinking for the past couple of weeks and have decided that I need to create deadlines for myself. I need your help, though. I need help creating a deadline for myself. What sort of schedule do I make? What will be the consequences should I fail to make the deadlines? I also need help being accountable for upholding my schedules. I would greatly appreciate if anyone who reads my blog would hold me to it.

So, are we in this together? I hope we are.
