This month is busy. I feel like I have too much to do, and not just at home. It’s actually a fairly quiet month for work, but there are other things to do, as well as things I want to do.
I’m 6 books behind in my Goodreads challenge. Only read 11 out of 30 books so far. I should be at 17. Well, thank the long books for that. I’m currently reading A Storm of Swords by George R. R. Martin, a book that’s more than 1100 pages long. I’m also reading an eBook called The Somali Doctrine, which is much shorter, and I should be able to finish it within a couple weeks. After that, I have these to read:
- The Seeds of Earth, by Michael Cobley (kind of long)
- So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish, by Douglas Adams (a short one)
- 3001: The Final Odyssey, by Arthur C. Clarke (another short one)
That’s just the next three books. The next three eBooks are:
- The Circle of Sorcerers, by Brian Kittrell (no idea about this one)
- First Contact, by Michael R. Hicks (really looking forward to it)
- Blood Skies, by Steven Montano (again, I don’t know much about it)
Of course, I want to get Journey to Ariadne part 2 up, get part 3 critiqued, get part 4 written. Also, try to get at least 3 flash fiction stories a week written. The “Daily” part of the name is my target, really, not the reality.
I want to organise my library (that is, my book closet) and get a picture of it. It’s a mess right now. Too many books for them to be arranged nicely. I’ll need to stack vertically. Also, I want to get my daughter’s toys organised. They’re a complete mess, but she does that every day.
I have to get my passport renewed. Annoying to do, but necessary, considering I don’t live in my home country. I also can’t believe how expensive it is.
I’ve been neglecting my photo blog recently. I’ve fallen behind. Lots of photos to post. I also need to choose a new theme for that blog. It doesn’t display images properly on the homepage.
Keep things going as always, but also try to interact more on other blogs. More commenting, more following, especially amongst writing blogs. I also need to update the rest of my reviews to the new format. I haven’t been doing that recently. And on the topic of reviews, I have two to write: Moving PIctures, by Terry Pratchett and The Sword and the Dragon, by M. R. Mathias.
Get more videos done. Try at least two a week. Also, try promoting my YouTube channel to gain more followers. That means you! So, go over to it and subscribe.
Continue with my exercising and finish level 1 for push-ups and sit-ups on Runtastic’s apps. Read more to my daughter. Welcome my new niece (my wife’s sister is having a baby this month). And there’s just so much more. I also have to start preparing to get my daughter’s Canadian citizenship sorted out. But that can wait. It’ll happen, though.
So, how’s your August? Busy?
