Collage + Jan Updates

I think I'm going to start doing updates on how I've been doing each month. It'll help me to be more positive, remembering what I've accomplished that month. Also if I only make one collage it's a place to showcase it and break up the text post.

January Successes
  • I feel better mentally and physically.
  • Meditation and yoga are working for me.
  • Transitioning to a plant based diet hasn't been as difficult as I thought it would be.
  • Had a job interview! So happy.
  • I've read a few graphic novels this month.

February Goals
  • Continue reading daily even if it's only 1-2 pages a day.
  • Hopefully find a job this month.
  • Go to the gym! At least 4 times. That's once a week. It's doable for sure.
  • Blog at least four times this month. Get into the routine man!
  • Keep my plant based diet going!
  • (Hopefully get something pierced.)
What has the first month of 2016 been like for you? I love hearing from you guys. Onwards and upwards!


Reading Challenge 2016

I've been reading pretty consistently this month. The key has been reading more graphic novels. My trick is to read a standard novel along with a graphic novel. It helps me feel like I'm progressing more. 2 pages of a novel + 30 pages of a graphic novel seem pretty good to me. Also I'm testing my retention skills since I have remember all the details of the novel since I read so little of it per day. So my 2016 reading challenge is to read 16 books. I haven't really thought out which books I want to read ahead of time but I have The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo on the kindle app and I want to read Night Film at some point! Along with the two novels above those are the only concrete books I have set out to read.

Right now I'm reading Calling Dr. Laura by Nicole J. Georges. It's a graphic memoir with some mystery elements involving a family secret. I love her drawing style. Very cool. And she's attracted to women! LGB representation! I'm also reading What She Left by T.R. Richmond. Bought in Tesco a few months ago on a whim. I had originally wanted to read the first Game of Thrones book but that was too intimidating for me right now. What She Left is a crime, murder mystery novel surrounding a young woman who mysteriously drowned. I'm on the fence about this one but I will persevere. My friend lent me Drinking at the Movies by Julia Wertz and it was a funny graphic memoir about a young woman trying to make in New York as a cartoonist. I liked it a lot as she tapped into the lack of direction you feel in your twenties as you try to make ends meet and the hopelessness of youth in a sarcastic and witty way. I'm interested to read her Fart Party collection. Are you reading any interesting books this year?
