I can’t believe it is May already. Where is the sunshine? It is still so cold and I’m spending the evenings wrapped in blankets with the heating on. I’m very tempted to book a one way ticket to somewhere warm.
I am aware that I have gone on and on about finishing University, but my time as a student has come to end. Last month I completed all of my assignments, hence why I only managed to publish one blog post. Gasp. I do still have an exam, so I’m not totally free of revision yet, but come the afternoon of the 15th, I will officially be free.
It is quite daunting not being a student anymore; having a lecture to attend or an assignment to work towards. I feel a little lost at the moment, yet at the same time, I have many ideas and plans in mind but it is having the nerve to act on them and get them started. Taking the first leap is also the scariest part – not that I leap anyway, I usually shuffle along. Nevertheless, I am determined to get there and make things happen. I’m hoping to write more about this in a future blog post.
This month is already whizzing by and so far, I haven’t really got anything too exciting planned just yet. The University Summer Ball is fast approaching, so I am looking forward to that, and the Bank holiday at the end of the month of course. Other than that, I’m enjoying some time out. I need it. We all need it.
Below are my intended goals for this month.
CONTINUE WRITING MY CHILDREN’S STORY
Something I definitely want to work on this month is the children’s book I am writing. I’ve always loved writing stories, but for some reason, I’ve never finished or completed a story. Either I’ve given up and moved on, or I thought it wasn’t good enough and had no idea where to take it. Over the last year or so, I have been working on a children’s story as part of a larger Creative Writing module at University. I knew I wanted to write children’s fiction because I absolutely love the genre myself, and many books I read are, you guessed it – children’s books. I even wrote my dissertation on the representations of animals in picturebooks. Not really what you would expect from a degree level literature student, but, I couldn’t resist. Anyway, I’m not going to give anything away about the book I’m writing just yet (as I think I’d like to give it it’s own post), other than I need to finish it. I have to finish it. I know how it ends, I just need to get the characters there. Never have I felt so invested in one of my own stories before; the characters already mean so much to me and I can see them clear as day in my head. For that reason, I am going to finish it.
GREEN FINGERS | LEARN TO GARDEN
So far, I haven’t actually done any gardening this month. I haven’t really spent a lot of time outdoors because it has been so chilly. Last month however, when it was slightly warmer, I did help pot a few plants and trim a few bushes. For me, a neat and pretty garden is such an important part to any home. It doesn’t have to be ginormous, but it does have to be well looked after, with a lot of plants and flowers. One day, I would love to have my own garden; a place to relax and unwind in, which is why I am keen to learn. My only fear with gardening however is, spiders. I’m terrified of them.
MORE BLOG POSTS
April proved to be a very difficult month for blogging. I only posted once which was a ‘Goals’ post, and even that was sixteen days late. This month however, I want to dedicate more time and effort into my blog. Now that University is over, I am giving myself the task of publishing two blog posts a week. I have already written a list of future content ideas and I can’t wait to start working on them and sharing them with you. So keep your eyes peeled for any future posts!
What are your goals this month?
