I'm working two jobs as of right now, which I am abundantly grateful for! I have been living a little too close to the wrong edge of my comfort zone, for quite a while - I am rejoicing that I can now freely smile and breathe, and move all over the place! Not all over the world just yet, but happy dancing for sure!! Many of you have probably been in that situation more than one time in your life, and I'm sure you all know that wonderful feeling procured, when acquiring just that extra bit more breathing room. The relief to be had is entirely euphoric!
I've also been up to reading, since 2014 began. I don't make New Year's resolutions, but I did decide to myself, that I would get back on the track of reading(also, I got a haircut![thanks mom and sis! ღ]). I loved reading when I was a kid - couldn't get enough of it! However, since the internet took ahold of me in my later years of high school (so many awesome movies and shows!!), my attention span waned and I got a bit lackadaisical. Well, I'll have you know that I have kicked that out the door: I have so far read 7 out of my goal of 10 books, this year! Actually, I heightened my goal twice, as I was able to get my hands on more new books! The thirst is back, and this is very exciting to me. My favourite of those books have been Sarah Palin's "Going Rogue" (by the way, hilarious video of her chat with "Vladimir Putin"!) and Bristol Palin's "Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far". I absolutely ate up Bristol's book, and read it very quickly. There was so much to absorb in Sarah's book, that it took over a month's worth of picking it up and putting it down, for me to finally complete it. Really, it took me maybe 3-4 days of powerhousing through it, and other days of reading snippets here and there, as time allowed. I am very glad I read it! Learned so much. Highly recommended!
So, if any of you have any advice from your experience in Alaska, coupons or other discounts, recommendations, etc, I would love to hear them!! Thank you very much!
As for my books (the one from NaNoWriMo, and one I started in sixth grade - Tuck Everlasting II), I am still adding incredible depth to my Dutch story, and have yet to re-read Tuck Everlasting so as to get back the details and the lingo of it. I did obtain a copy, however! So, this is good news. I can't wait to one day publish these, somehow! I have high aspirations of making my European family/action(even humour) story into a movie. That would be beyond incredible! Firstly of course, I have to finish working on it. Which I am going to continue doing, between my two great jobs! They may be both part time and less than $10 an hour, but I will make it!! It's good enough for me.;)
See you on the other side, with my next update!:)
