Reading: ashamedly little. It's already the eighth of March and I can't even boast half a page. I just haven't . touched . a . novel. Who am I turning into? What is this reincarnation? This cannot be. This weekend I will finish 'Go set a Watchman' and I will reread Pride and Prejudice, because it's been ages since I did that. I WILL.
Reading: I'll do another one for the Bible, because I have been doing that. It is a different category all together. I just started Isaiah. My Bible read-through is the best thing ever. I'm already half-way through and I started in December. *fistpumps me*
Writing: Okay, hear me here, I'm doing good with writing. I know, you may all go ahead and faint on your sofas and beds and bathtubs. I am doing well with writing. OK, quite well, at least. BUT I'M DOING QUITE WELL AND THAT'S SOMETHING OK?! My goal for March is 5000 words a week. Which means 1500 words for me to punch down this evening, or I'll be seriously behind schedule. ICANDOTHIS.
Studying: Ugh, why do you ask me such vile things? Why should I pollute Wonderland Creek with study-talk? (If you want to know: Sociology. English. French. Past Papers. Ok, now shut up.)
Flying: nowhere. I can't fly. And exciting plane tickets aren't on my agenda at the moment.
Eating: I just ate rice and fish-pie. I wish it had been chocolate instead but I can't always have things my way, I suppose.
Sighing: At the weird conundrums of the world, my brothers (let's be real, they're nuts) (I love them but they're nuts), and annoying emails. On a more positive note, I haven't had any spam comments lately. I used to get tons of those. I guess they finally got my message that I wasn't going to visit their creepy url's.
Listening: right now? To the Willis Clan. I love them so much. Also they remind me SO VIVIDLY of me sitting with Emma and Sadie in the car and going to Church in the morning. I love City Down Below. Jessica's voice is so good. I've also been listening to podcasts of Francis Chan. Always so good.
Blogging: about my very interesting life. Duh. Obvs.
Singing: All sortsa songs. Fiddler on the Roof arias, Carrie Underwood songs, and One Direction hits. (I'll admit, 1D is sort of my guilty pleasure. I hate and love them simultaneously.) I've also been singing songs I only know 10% of the lyrics of. And worship songs.
Dreaming: About friends getting sick? I know. Why. I dream depressing things.
Drinking: lizard saliva and mushroom juice smoothies. It's absolutely delicious. Like, seriously, the most delicious things you'd ever dream of. I can't stop drinking them. They're nice with some tomato pips and rabbit droppings for extra texture. Highly recommended. (LOL SO FUNNY NAOMI.)
Challenging: you to read Gone with the Wind in five minutes. I totally did that the other day. It was a very thorough read-through. (Ok, maybe I should stop lying in this post. It is one of the Ten Commandments.)
Talking: With friends at Youth Group, with random new people at choir rehearsal, with siblings, with Mama... all sorts of human beings, I guess.
Texting: The last text message I sent was: "I'm so happy you like it. Wait till you get to Aunt Batty's story - it's my favourite part. *insert smiley-emoji" - yeah, a friend of mine is reading Hidden Places for the first time and she texted me about it and she's cool. (Friend test: Give her Hidden Places. Friend likes it. Friend approved.)
Emailing: Emma. And Rosie McGann. And Miss March. Those were the three last. Although not in that order. I'm too lazy to go back and change them to order. #thelazinessof2017
Making: A little video for myself this March, with a bunch of random clips of this month. I want to try it and see if the end result is nice. I'm trying to make it look aesthetically pleasing.
Loving: The lizard saliva and mushroom juice smoothies, of course. Ok, kidding, kidding. I'm loving the Willis Clan songs, my rainbow-themed bookshelves, my pink camera, and Matthew Crawley. And Jordan and Sarah from the youtube channel Blimey Cow being engaged. That made my day.
Ordering: a map of the world on Amazon, because it's going to be so pretty for my desk space.
Contemplating: About some of the commands in the Bible that... I frankly, just ignore. Like giving to the poor, not worrying, and rejoicing in the Lord ALWAYS (and again I say: rejoice.) Like, how many commands in the Bible have the 'and again I say' thing after it to emphasise its importance? And how many times is my attitude a rejoicing one? Yeah, contemplate-worthy stuff.
Wishing: that I didn't have to do chores after I've done with this blogpost.
Having: to do chores when I'm done writing this blogpost. And then schoolwork. So much fun.
Being: Just really thankful. God's glory and power and love is astounding.
Going: to publish this post now. Bye. (Or rather: hello. Because that means it'll be public, haha.)
