My Best Friend Crystal is a very well-read individual. She reads more than anyone I know who isn't a fictional character. This year she was talking about this reading challenge thing that seemed very cool. You have 50 categories that totals out to 52 books (one category is a trilogy). It sounded very fun to me at the time because reading is always something I want to do but never make the time for it.
I started late but because I had been in Cuba and read nearly five books in a week I was still on track. I am currently one book behind schedule having read 10 books so far but I think I will be able to catch up because one category is a graphic novel so I can read that super quick and be caught up.
So far this year I have read around three thousandish pages of text. At least according to the very ridiculous spreadsheet I made. If there is anything my OCD mother taught me was, compulsive calorie awareness, and spreadsheet making. We love a good chart. You should see what happens if we make calorie charts. SHIT GETS INTENSE.
Anyways the point of the story is.... Well I was hoping I was going to think of a point by the time I got to the end of the sentence but I got distracted by the fact that I want ice-cream. Crap.
The main point (I guess) is that I think I might be proud of myself for trying to do this. I will likely not read all 52 books because that's a lot of books. But even trying is more then I would have been capable of five to ten years ago. In high school I couldn't even finish one book in the entire four year span let alone ten books in eleven weeks. PROGRESS!
Now if only I could write a book as quick as I could read one. Then I could stop working at a job I hate with a schedule I hate with situations I hate. I am a hateful person I guess but that is just another Pro into the "Tanya working alone in the safety of her own home" category I think.
Anyways I need to go find some food type things. Perhaps I will go to the store. If anyone wants to provide me with book suggestions I would greatly appreciate it. Nothing too crazy long, I am a robot but as previously mentioned, a shitty one who can't really compute too well.
