At the beginning of summer, my laptop died. R.I.P. Preston. You are dearly missed.
Luckily, it happened after school ended, so there wasn't any problems with that.
I tried my best to "unplug" and enjoy my time away from school and responsibility, but I still ended up using my iPod Touch ALL THE TIME. (Yeah. I'm lame and don't have an iPhone or any version of a "good phone". Just a crappy Windows phone that doesn't even have Instagram!)
Anyways, now that school is about to start again, I got a new laptop! It's a MacBook Pro and I'm absolutely smitten. I've been doing loads of homework and editing what little pictures I took over the summer.
Due to it being the beginning of a new month and a new blogging era all at once, I have decided to start off with a few goals.
1. GET BACK INTO BLOGGING. During my time away, I have missed blogging SO much. You don't even know. Blogging gives me a reason to take pictures, to make goals, and it's a great way to spend your time. Also, it's a good way to keep track of things that you have done. Personally, I hate keeping journals, so blogging is where it's at. I am hoping to participate in Blogtember on Story of my Life. Are you going to be doing the challenge?2. REVAMP THE BLOG DESIGN. I like my blog design, but I'm not in love with it. It's time for a change. I just don't know what I want to do with it yet. Does anybody have any ideas? I'm open to pretty much anything right now.3. READ THREE BOOKS FOR FUN. You would think that I would have read more while my laptop was out of service, but you would be wrong. I don't know what it was but I probably read a total of three books, all summer. I started reading more once the beginning of school crept closer and closer. I want to keep that up. Currently, I'm reading a copy of Fight Club that my friend lent to me.4. CLEAN MY ROOM (AND KEEP IT CLEAN). I don't think my room is ever going to STAY clean, but it's worth a try, right? Hopefully, by the end of the month, my room will be clean. Right now, it's pretty much a disaster. I've had embroidery thread all over my floor that I've been trying to clean up for a month, clean clothes I never got around to putting away piled on the floor and junk mail cluttered everywhere. It's time to clean up that mess.5. TAKE PICTURES. I carry my camera with me everywhere, but I rarely take it out of my bag now. I need to get back into the habit of taking pictures when I see something interesting. I love photography and I need to stick with it, especially now that I can edit my pictures. Practice makes perfect!
Wish me luck! What are you goals for this month?
