Since I am an unemployed 18 year old girl who doesn’t have her licence and almost no social life, I have decided to implement a rule that should (hopefully) ‘kickstart’ (I really don’t like that word) my 2008.
Ugh. I sound like a weight loss program.
And yes, I know it’s February.
Those who know me, and have perhaps read my earlier blog Reading time with pickle, know that I am a bit of a reading fanatic. I am obsessed. When I have nothing to do, I’ll read a book. When I am sitting in my pig sty of a room and my parents have asked me to clean it, I’ll read a book. And even though I have all these good intentions to read the classics, I usually end up reading mind numbing, fluffy chick lit. That I own. And have read 50 million times before.
So my rule is…
NO READING FICTION UNTIL I GET A JOB!
It’s only been a week and my will power is wavering dangerously. There are 2 new Meg Cabot books that have just been released that I can’t read and then there is my own massive library staring me in the face every time I enter my room.
The only things that I have available to me to read are my YITS books that I didn’t touch last year and the few art books that I own. So I guess that is good. I am not polluting my mind with stupid stories that will NEVER HAPPEN, I am learning things. One point for Blair!
The only thing is that I am NOT reading those books. I am just doing other things to fill up my time, e.g. watching Disney movies that I haven’t seen in a long long time (I wish I was Belle), getting into crappy Daytime television, wasting time on myspace/facebook, and painting.
The last one is not so bad. I have finally finished a painting that I started 2 years ago…

And I have been able to start Emily’s Christmas present. Once again, I know it’s February. Once I have finished it you will understand the title *Hint hint. Nudge nudge. Say no more. Say no more. A nod’s as good as a wink to a blind bat*. Sorry, I couldn’t resist the temptation to go into a Monty Python rant.
And now I am off to go and…I don’t know what. Waste time? My life is so hard. Maybe I’ll apply for a job…that might be good…
