Where has the summer gone?
Actually, this has been an epic and fulfilling summer that started quite early, so I have nothing to complain about. But that doesn't mean I don't have a thousand more things I must do before August closes. Thankfully, although school starts mid-August, it probably won't get intense till September.
As Nimrodel said, "one month more". :D
Here are the things I really want do:
~Finish the Anne books. Three more to go.
~Get everything ready to start teaching piano in the fall. I'm hoping to start teaching piano as a part-time job this fall, but I need to start advertising, purchasing business licenses, yada, yada.
And if you think of it, I would appreciate your prayers that I get students. :)
~Organize my school stuff. It's that time of year.
~Make a picture album-thingy from the pictures I took with our most recent visitors.
Here's one of the pictures: I'm rather proud of it:)
~Finish Sense and Sensibility'95. This one partially depends on my mom's schedule, because we're watching it together.
~Finish my math book. Yeah, hopefully...
~Get to where I'm supposed to be for our church's women's book discussion group. All the other women are reading Knowing God. I started it, but I really need to catch up now.
~Practice at least 7 hours of violin. At least.
~Write a guest post for LoverofLembas's Blog-ust.
~Finish watching Strangers on a Train.
~Read more of this school year's books. I was hoping to read ahead on a few more school books than I did, but if nothing else, I got the hard ones out of the way.
~Paint my toenails.
~Practice piano at least 10 hours.
~Do the Downton Abbey marathon my friend and I have been talking about since the spring. "Don't be defeatist, dear, it's very middle class..."
~Catch up on pen-pal-ing.
British television for the win. :D
~Spend at least an hour studying Latin.
~Finish listening to Focus on the Family's Les Misérables audio dramatization.
And speaking of Les Mis...
~Write at least two more posts at my Les Misérables Fan Blog.
~Watch War Horse. But it's okay if this doesn't happen, because I have a lot of other movie/tv related items on here.
~Catch up on the Jane Eyre read-along.
~Read Fellowship of the Ring. It's a bit of a tradition for me to read Lord of the Rings at the beginning of every other school year. Who am I to break tradition?
~Enjoy the Olympics. I'll be in something of a frenzy these next few weeks working on all these other things, but I want to be able to enjoy some of the Olympics events without stressing about what I should be doing instead.
Yeah, I guess that's all I have. At the end of August, assuming I've gotten a respectable amount of all this done, I'll post an update. You all can keep me accountable to at least making a dent in it. :D
Thanks so much for reading!
What do you have to do before school and September start?
