Summer is (essentially) here again. The school year hasn’t quite finished, so in teacher lingo summer is just around the corner; the weather would prove that the season has indeed arrived. For me, however, the start of summer is marked by a return to Chapel Hill Public Library as a summer employee. It’s only the first shift of the summer, but I hope to make this a yearly tradition – part-time work means extra money and a continual drive to manage my free time towards the pursuit of my passions.
So, to kick things off I’ll keep this brief.
Here’s a (partial) list of books I plan to read and activities I plan to pursue, in no specific order:
- WRITE MORE OF MY NOVEL
- Write at least 2 short stories: “The Dream Jumper” and “The Visitor”
- Write poetry
- DRAW at least every three days
- Dedicate time to guitar and keyboard
- FINISH Consider Phlebas (Yes, it’s a book I’m reading, but my need to finish it supersedes reading.)
- Wolf Hollow by Lauren Wolk – finished!
- Born a Crime by Trevor Noah – Currently
- Universal Harvester by John Darnielle
- Shaman by Kim Stanley Robinson
- Old Man’s War by John Scalzi
- Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25 by Richard Paul Evans
- The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill
- The Maze Runner by James Dashner
- Bluefish by Pat Schmatz
- The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
- LIST To Be Continued 🙂
