Wow so I was thinking about putting an update since it was the beginning of September but all of the sudden it’s the middle of September and I don’t know what happened!
A couple of people close to me have mentioned that a company that they think I would enjoy working for is hiring, and I’m praying about that opportunity. Additionally, I think I may have finally found a college that offers the classes I need for my degree, and so now I just have work out applying to that school, taking the classes, and getting them transferred into a college that accepts all my credits–or hoping that they will take all of my credits. So yeah, some big adulting this month. Which is only fitting, I suppose, since I turn 21 at the beginning of October. What a crazy thought. A crazy thought that I haven’t given much thought, actually. My soul feels so much older than that but my mind feels so much younger in the sense that I’ve learned such an infinitesimally small amount of all the things there are to learn in the world. But I do suppose my heart and spirit have experienced 21 years worth of things to experience.
I’ve completed two out of three of my New Year’s resolutions for 2019: 1) Travel out of the country again, 2) Read a book of poetry, and still have yet to accomplish 3) Make a friend from Greenland. Because, you know, why not.
I’ve hit over 100 countries now on the blog (that might have been said in the August updates too but I’m not sure when I hit the 100+ countries mark), and I’m still pushing myself out of my comfort zone and overcoming fears.
As for reading goals, I’m well on my way, as I greatly underestimated the amount of time I would have to read this year, and I have read 31 out of my goal of 35 books. You may be able to click the GoodReads widget in the sidebar and see more–I’m not really sure how much it’ll show besides what I’m currently reading.
In terms of writing goals, I am slowly catching up in my journal–I’ve gotten to only two months behind present day. 🙂 And I’m writing sporadically and arguably more on my blog, but still have not touched my book. I have been thinking about it though. I may or may not go back to it, and if/when I do, I will likely change everything. So I think the thought of all that progress going down the drain is keeping me from doing anything there.
Those are all the updates I can think of, so thanks again for staying with me and following me and caring about the words I write!
