I can’t believe it’s already May! Although I am so glad that it is, it doesn’t feel possible that it is already this late in the year! It feels like it was just New Year’s, and yet, here we are, with summer fast approaching and warmer weather upon us. Here’s what I’m currently up to this May!
Celebrating: I’m celebrating that I’m finally on summer break! I’ve worked so hard on homework and class assignments for what seems like forever, so I’m so glad to finally have a lengthy break stretching before me. There are no limits to all of the things I can accomplish!
Reading: I’m actually reading all kinds of different books lately, some good, some bad. This past weekend, I finished both The Photograph by Beverly Lewis and Song of Silence by Cynthia Ruchti. I really enjoyed both of them, though Song of Silence was by far my favorite of the two. Right now, I’m reading Love’s Rescue by Christine Johnson, but I’m finding that I can’t really get into it, and I don’t know why. I’m not sure I’ll actually finish it, possibly because I’m extremely excited to start the next book on my list—The Love Letters by Beverly Lewis.
Pondering: I don’t really know what exactly I’m pondering at the moment. Maybe what I really long to accomplish this summer, maybe how to make the most money to help pay for college, maybe what I want to do next with my blog and my fiction writing. I haven’t really gotten nearly as far as I would like on developing my craft as far as fiction is concerned, so maybe that’s something I’m really ponding this month: how to become a better writer.
Sipping: At the moment, I’m sipping water. Which is exactly what I want to be sipping. Not really. What I wish I was sipping is a nice, tall glass of peach tea. I’m obsessed with peach tea. I love it. But I haven’t had it in forever, and I’m dying to drive right over to the store and pick some up right now. However, I think I’ll save it as a reward for getting a lot done rather than being lazy this month. While I love peach tea more than any other kind, and possibly any other beverage out there, I also know it’s probably not the best for me and therefore have somehow restrained from always having some on hand. It would make for a fabulous summer treat though!
Going: As I write this, I’ve mostly just been going back and forth to work and other places like that, but just this past weekend I was in Hamilton Branch for a wonderful vacation with my immediate—and some of my extended—family. It was so relaxing and peaceful, and I know I had an amazing time. We’ll be going to Edisto together later this summer as well, and I can’t wait!
Well, that’s what I’m up to this May! I can’t wait to see what the rest of the month holds!
