So I was looking for another short quote to use for calligraphy practice. Instead of heading over to trusty, old Google, I decided to look for book quotes I ‘clipped’ on my Kindle. And this caught my fancy.
This only works if you live outside the US.
Now, this was a little late in coming, what with almost a quarter of the year almost done. But the thing is, it took a while for anything concrete to materialize as an underlying theme to guide my endeavors for the coming
year months. But something finally popped up, all thanks to Will Traynor:
…live boldly. Push yourself. Don’t settle. Wear those stripy legs with pride.
Unlike last year, I am not exactly at the top of my [reading] game this year. At least, not lately. Before I got my oven, I was usually at least 3 or 4 books ahead of schedule. But ever since I started baking and selling brownies on the side, my reading time has been cut back drastically. Not that I’m complaining. But still.
It looks like for the first time since I started, I might not be able to meet my goal number of books to be read. Sad thought. I could always lower the target number of books, but that feels like an admission of defeat.
