A little about resolutions. In years past I haven't been a fan of new years resolutions, because I had thought you should be able to motivate yourself no matter the time of year. However, the last few years I have embraced the idea to organize my projects and ideas down into less overwhelming and giant transformative goals. What better way than to encourage myself, rather than daily duties or focusing on giving up poor habits, I would break them down into monthly goals rather than overwhelming year long tasks. And this year I've decided on three things to do each month.
The first goal of mine is a simple one. But in the hustle of the work week can often get forgotten. This year I would like to read one literary classic a month. Sounds easy right? Well, to help me achieve this goal I have put together a rough list of books that I have been meaning to read so that I can easily keep up. I may change a few as the year goes on. If you have a better idea or would like to check up on me, here are the books in no particular order.
I have started reading The Picture of Dorian Grey, what should I read next month? Feel free to join along!
And half reading Wicked, and when I can steal it from the Prof. Notes from a Small Island by Bill Bryson — hilarious!
