This Month's Goals
I Want to Read:

  • Welcome to Bordertown by Various Authors
  • The Summer Prince by Alaya Dawn Johnson
  • On the Edge of Gone by Corinne Duyvis (reread)
  • Stranger by Sherwood Smith and Rachel Manija Brown (reread)

I Want to Write:

  • I juuuuuuuust want to finish this booooooook and rewrite the ending that is aaaaaaaaaall universe. T_T
  • Also if I could get started on one of the fairytale retellings faintly bouncing in my brain that would be terrific
  • Also the short stories bouncing around in my head. If I could not have a zillion taking up space, that would be good, please and thank you, brain.

If I could get through February without keeling over of Overwhelm that would be nice and good. I will settle for that, but here you go. Have my ambitious list of stuff to do this month. I can guarantee that the reading will happen and will happen relatively quickly – my actual official list is a few books longer – but wow I have a job interview tomorrow (sadly yet another part-time job with highly irregular hours, but pay’s pay) and I started an online course midway through January and I want to work hard at doing well with that and… Yeah. I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed right now.

Also I may have discovered baking is something that I can at least partway enjoy and my parents have, as a result, decided to utterly bury me in Stuff They Think I Should Bake. (As in the actual cake mixes and ingredients stuff. Not just recipe suggestions on what they think makes good beginner’s material. Mind you, I wanted to start with home-made croissants, so this may or may not be a good thing in the long run. BUT CROISSANTS. T_T)

But, yeah, there’s the plan. I will probably only manage a tenth of the writing plan because wow did you know that when your brain isn’t working right, writing is really hard? And depression has been kicking me in the teeth a lot on top of everything else. (Hell, it’s probably part of why my brain is going “AGH! Too much stuff! SHUT DOWN!”

But I will shush now. Suffice to say: February will probably be hard, but I shall keep going and we shall see what we shall see.
