How is it JUNE already? It seems like only yesterday that I was making New Years resolutions on which I had no realistic intention of following through. But now, well, here we are with bathing suit season upon us and I managed to forget every day for five months that I wasn’t going to eat bread or that I was REALLY going to try to get into morning meditation.
But let’s move on from the perpetual shortcomings of “January” me. “Summer” me really wants to start writing more regularly, so I’ve decided to set myself a task of posting something here every day in the month of June.
Now you may be thinking, “crap on a cracker, Jenna, that’s THIRTY posts, and you’ve posted less than ten times in the last FOUR YEARS. This is never going to happen.”
Well, first off, your bad attitude is the reason we can’t have nice things.
Just kidding, that’s not you speaking, it’s me. Or, more specifically, the me who doesn’t meditate and considers sourdough bread its own food group. But SUMMER me, she is an eternal optimist, and she says “you got this, lady, it will be fun!” And since she is the one currently running the show and getting ready to squeeze herself into a swimsuit (sourdough bits be damned), this is what we’re doing now.
I want to explore some fun stuff that I like, love, or just think about regularly, and that I often assume other people aren’t interested in. But maybe you are! And if not…well, it’s my name on the blog, after all, so let’s just dig in, shall we?
In an effort to hold myself to some sort of standard and not just prattle on aimlessly for a month, here’s my rough plan for the remaining (29) topics for the month. They are in no particular order and with no particular context (you’ll just have to wait and see!):
- Miniature magic
- The Saturday tub
- Books I’m Reading Now
- Living In
- Drawing for non-drawers
- An introvert’s guide to saving the world
- How many Ss in Crossssstitch?
- Getting Things Done
- Beautiful Data
- Hallmark, why aren’t you better?
- Color coding and why it makes everything better
- Tactile goodies
- If you’re reading this, sorry but you probably need to be your own Julie
- Summer holidays
- Everyone needs (and has) a story
- How to be a minor expert
- You should be doing puzzles
- Some of the voices in my head
- My inability to commit
- Some tips that may or may not make your life better
- Personality tests
- Simple luxuries
- The case for Jill Clayburgh
- Finding your purpose
- Why a workshop?
- How did this go?
I’m excited/nauseous but I think we’ll all come through this okay (both bathing suit season and the blog posts). Come back tomorrow for more!
