November Wrap Up + December Goals


Hey fellow book nerds! Can you believe there is only one month left of this year??? 😱 And today is my friend Grace's birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRACE!!!) which means exactly one month from today I am turning 20!! I will be TWO WHOLE DECADES OLD! What even happened to my life? 😱😱😱😱 When I was younger when my mom would say she remembered something from 20 years ago I would think how can anybody remember something from that long ago, that's way longer than I've been alive! And now I'm officially going to be 20 years old! Like how? HOW?

Sorry I think my brain broke a little bit there. 😂

Anyway look at this adorable pic I found here on Pinterest!:

 
 

Writing:

  • NANOOOOO!!!!!! 😂 (The goal is 50,000 words obviously but I just at least want to beat my personal best which is 27,000-something words. But I have a feeling that I’ll actually be able to win this time anyway. 😉)  
Well I didn’t win. 😞 Thanksgiving got in the way, and after I took a break for that I just wanted to be done with Nano but I did write a little bit after Thanksgiving and I did beat my personal best by about 4,000 words with a grand total of 31,562, so I’m glad I accomplished that at least, though it doesn't look as impressive in the stats. 😂 

Life:

  • Get the book store job? (Nope. But I made my mind up that I am going to finally actually apply this month.)
  • Socialize more? (Eh. I guess so. I wasn’t really keeping track.)
  • Try to be more independent? (Kind of? I had a couple more driving lessons at least.)

Blogging:

  • Just try not to completely forget about blogging during Nano, that’ll be an accomplishment. 😜 I’m hoping to still do Top Ten Tuesday, so depending on my schedule, I’ll still be posting at least once a week. 
I think I pretty much did this, which is good. But don’t worry, my regular schedule will be going back to normal this month and I will be sure to have some more interesting posts. 😂

I think I’m going to take a break from writing this month, since I have a lot of blogging and reading to focus on to wrap up the rest of the year. I might try to work on my Snow White short story or my Nano project a little bit, but I doubt it. I might try to set up goals for myself on the Nano website to work on it throughout January and the next few months though.



Life:

  • Practice driving more.
  • Apply for the bookstore job already!
  • Get my brain organized. 😂
  • Catch up on movies and TV shows I need to watch.
  • Write a New Year’s Resolutions Page in my bullet journal.
  • Come up with resolutions to actually put on it. 😂

Blogging:

  • GET BETTER AT BLOGGING CONSISTENTLY!
  • Try to figure out how to network better.
  • Work on the surprise project for January. 😉

Reading:



Finish:

Jane EyreThe Mother-Daughter Book Club (The Mother-Daughter Book Club, #1)


Read all of:

Daughter of the Pirate King (Daughter of the Pirate King, #1)All Fall Down (Embassy Row, #1)


Uprising

Ruby Red (Precious Stone Trilogy, #1)
Atlantia


Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)


 I changed my Goodreads’ goal from 35 books back to my original 40, so if I read all of these books but one, I’ll be able to make it. Let’s hope I can finish all of them though, that would be nice. 😉


How did you guys do on Nano? Can you believe it's December already? The main reason this post is a day late is because yesterday we we decorating the house for Christmas! 😄 Maybe in my next post I will add a picture of our tree! 😊
