But What If I Don’t Want to Be an Adult?

Sunday Roundup

Status 100 words a day/100 days — at 32 days now. Sitting down to write the words has almost become second nature, with shows the muscles are coming back. This puts me in a good place for the class that’s starting in two weeks, where I will have to do some...

Goals for January 2011

Slept rather late this morning after staying up to see the new year in. We went out to get a late breakfast which really was lunch and now intend to spend the rest of the day being quiet, knitting and doing some reading. Before that, though, I wanted to post my goals...
