Goals for 2014
at 4:01 AM
I am twenty-four years old, have been a Christian all my life, am obsessed with reading, and yet have never read through the Bible. So I'm doing it. No special reading plans, just straight through, cover to cover. A lot of people don't recommend that, but I'm very stubborn and I've decided that's how I want to do it, so there's no turning back. Leviticus, I'm coming for ya.
Letters to friends, strangers, family, whoever. Letter writing is thought of as a lost art, but sitting down to write a letter is still one of my favorite things.
As I've mentioned before, I started writing a book ("book" sounds less frightening than "novel") in the fall. It's been such an incredible learning experience, and now that I've made it past the half-way point I am so pumped about finishing it out.
I'm relatively new to art journaling, but since starting my first art journal a few months ago I've become obsessed. It's so fun and freeing. For me, Project Life is a very structured creativity--it's a family album, others will be looking at it, it's important that it looks neat and uniform. But in the art journal I can let loose and splatter paint and sometimes that just really feels good.
Other goals for 2014:
- Have more friends over for dinner (related: learn how to cook.)
- Take more "couple portraits" of Trev and I.
- Totally clean and organize my bedroom closet (yikes!) Walk-ins are dangerous.
- Have more solo coffeedates just to read and daydream.
- Start dreaming up my next idea for a novel/writing project.
What are your hopes for the coming year?
