[dropcap]A[/dropcap]nother month has come and gone and that can only mean one thing: time to set a series of goals to completely ignore for the next 30 days (aka. November). What a treat! I’ll be honest, I don’t even go back and look at the end of the month. Hey, ho. It’s nice to get some ordered plans out on the screen, just to sort my head out a little. That’s what blogging’s all about, right?
I’ve been pretty rubbish at blogging lately so consider this me being already back on top of things, which leads us to my goals…
1. GET BACK INTO BLOGGING
As I say, I’ve been rubbish lately. Nothing has really interested me, and I haven’t really done anything other than work and eat so there we go. I promise, for November, there isn’t going to be at least one post a week on the old blog. I promise. Swear on my life.
2. GET BACK INTO RUNNING
Now that I’m almost there on forging myself a routine, it’s time to start adding the things that I used to enjoy the last time I was in Durham for uni. I’m going to get back into night runs. Weird little 11pm runs that are freezing cold and quiet and make you feel excellent. I’m not weird. That said, I went for one a few weeks ago and turned my ankle pretty badly in a pot hole and I’ve actually been off doing anything other than sleeping for a week or two. Whatever, it’s almost back to normal…
3. THINK ABOUT CHRISTMAS
Okay so I know it’s only the first few days of November. I actually have some really Christmassy things to do though. I have to work on some of the college panto, I have a few Christmas collabs coming together – it’s all very exciting over here re: Christmas. Be jealous.
4. WORK HARDER
The old dissertation is looming large at the moment, and I’ve probably definitely not done enough. Living the dream. That on top of a few essays to get in this term, things are going moderately well. Moderately well isn’t really good enough though, is it? Time to move up a gear and actually get on with things. I actually really enjoy it when I do.
5. READ ONE BOOK FOR PLEASURE
With all the piles and piles of reading that I have to get done as part of my fun little Theology degree, I don’t really fancy doing more at the end of the day. Doesn’t matter what it is or how fun and nice it is, I just don’t feel like doing it. Well, tough. In November, if I get a spare few minutes, I’m going to read one extra thing. One thing that isn’t anything to do with Theology or any of my modules.
N.B. This is actually a lie because I’m going to read Things Fall Apart which is actually really relevant to my course on Sub-Saharan African Religions but whatever.0
