February continues along with some great stats in the views and comments categories. After a full year of no real increase in views, this month finally looks to beat my previous best views, which was set in January 2015. Looking to reach 4,000 for the first time this month. It’s also been quite the week on the language front, as well as with writing. Let’s see what’s going on.
I started The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis this week, and I am now 93% finished. It’ll only be a few more minutes of reading, and I think I’ll do that tonight. Consider it finished. Fastest book since I read 2001: A Space Odyssey. A little progress on Keepers of Water by R. G. Porter. It’s now at 39%.
I talked a lot this week about the Snowflake Method, which I am going to incorporate aspects of in my planning and outlining. You can read the original post here, in which I compare the method with what I have been doing. I followed that up with a post about what I will be using from the Snowflake Method here. I haven’t had much discussion on the second post. I think that’s the more relevant post, so please check it out.
I made a big decision this week, and that is to focus on learning Esperanto. Why? It’s quick and easy to learn, and it’ll help make other European languages quicker and easier to learn. I wrote about it in this post. Please go and read that.
With that said, I did make a little progress in French, and am now at level 3 for Esperanto on Duolingo.
A lot of anticipation going on this week. I’ve been looking into my daughter’s school, as well as figuring that I need to go to the Consul-General in Calgary as soon as possible to get my Japanese driver’s license translated. I need some photo ID in English with my address if I’m going to be able to do anything.
Nothing this week, but I’ll see if I can get a video or two done this coming week. It would be nice to get some progress done on the Taste of Japan videos.
I need to update review lists, reading challenges, and a couple things on the right sidebar. Just a little cleaning up and making sure everything is updated. I should also update the languages page to reflect what I’ve been studying.
Nothing to update this week.
The Next Week’s Goals
At least one video for YouTube, I hope. I also hope to make good progress in Esperanto. I should get the blog updated, and plenty of blog posts. I still have to get that Top Ten post done, though it’s not a big priority. I have a lot to say about writing, though. On the immigration front, I need to get my resume done up, so I can start applying for jobs soon. I also want to contact my daughter’s future school. And finally, I’ll be starting a new book. That reminds me, though. I need to write a few reviews. I should get on that.
How about you? How was your week? Anything planned for the next week? Let me know in the comments below.
