Welcome to December, everyone!
It seems like I have been waiting to be this close to the beginning of my quest for ages. Really, it’s been less than two months. Crazy, right? I’ve keep thinking to myself, what am I going to have to say for a whole year? So, I’ve been making a list (and checking it twice). I have a plan. Naturally, right? Me, the planner. Yes, I have a plan. Of course I do.
Here’s how the year is going to break down:
Mondays: Music Mondays. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m obsessed with a new song every week. Sometimes it changes day to day. They’re not always new songs, either, so that’s what makes it fun for me. This morning, for example, I heard Michael Jackson’s “Black or White” on the radio, and I was just jamming. So, every Monday, I plan to quote, review, and explain why I like a certain song of the week so much. I’m sure I will have an excess of material for this one.
Tuesdays: Varied Topics. Because you never know what’s going to be happening in life, and I’ve got to talk about current events somewhere.
Wednesdays: Movie/TV Wednesdays. Like music, I’m always watching something. I may include books in here sometimes, too, but since I will be taking classes all year, I didn’t think I should devote a whole category to books when I won’t have much time to fill it.
Thursdays: Varied Topics. I’m hoping that either Tuesdays or Thursdays will give me space to include some pictures, as well. A picture is worth a thousand words, after all.
Fridays: Topical. But! This is different than Tuesdays and Thursdays, because I have been making a list, with the help of some friends of mine, of topics that I should write about. And if the people want to hear it, well, they’ll hear it all right! Naturally, I will be including some of my own topics as well – I only have so much to say about Star Wars fan fiction. (Oh, just you wait until you hear – or read, rather – the ideas that I’ve been given for topics to write about.)
Saturdays: Weekend Plans. Because H, Ole, and I always seem to be crazy busy on the weekends. Between both of our families, friends, travel plans, and races, we’re always doing something!
Sundays: People Who Inspire Me/Places I Want To Go. I’m going to alternate weeks for this one. These lists are already made – 26 people who inspire me and 26 places I want to go. I’m a dreamer, what can I say?
Are you ready for this? Because it’s going to be a whirlwind of a year.
And last, but not least, I am making another call for ideas for Friday topics. I have 20 so far, some my own, some from others. But I need more! Is there anything you want to hear me talk about? I’ll take a stance if it’s an opinionated topic, I can write creatively (like some Star Wars fan fiction, I guess), and I can research, if there’s just something you want to know more about. My brain moves a million miles a minute. I’m open to anything. Give me ideas! You can leave them here, in the comments, or if you know me personally, you can let me know through social media or my portable communication device (aka, my cell phone, ha). Seriously! Anything you’ve been wondering about! Anything you think would make me uncomfortable! Anything at all! I’m all ears (or eyes, if I’m reading).
Happy December! You’ll be hearing a lot more from me in less than a month!
