365 Questions, 5 Years & 1,825 Answers

It’s a little late in the year to be making new goals; however, I’m trying by taking small steps.

I received a very nifty gift for my birthday in 2015. Fast-forward to today, I am finally making a commitment to use this unique present.

My mother gave me a “Q&A a day” book, that has 365 questions, lasts 5 years, which totals 1, 325 answers. It’s basically a 5-year journal for the lazy.

What’s even cooler, is that “Q&A a day” has even more books, specialized for mothers, for couples or 2 people, for kids, for teens, for creatives, and for writers. This would be a great Valentine’s Day gift or birthday!

Back in 2015, I made it less than a month of consecutive answers. This year I am committing. And by committing, I mean starting on January 31. I’ve made it eight days so far!

Maybe it wasn’t the best idea to look ahead, but it’s interesting to know what questions are next. Some answers I know right off the bat and others will definitely take some thought! I’ve answered the questions bolded for fun!

Social butterfly

Setting goals to be more social…on social media.

My lacking Instagram feed.

 

When I was in middle school, I distinctly remember writing a poem about my mother. I titled it “Social Butterfly.”

It went something along the lines of:
Social butterfly
Flying high up in the sky
Making her presence known, to all who stand by

Beyond those three lines, I can’t say I remember much else. However, I do know that my social presence is lacking, whether it be in where I am or what I’m posting on social media.

My Facebook feed is semi-populated; however, it’s full of articles I’ve written. Read what I write here!

Instagram-I’ve posted three times in the last four months.

Twitter-The last thing I remember tweeting was for my job when I was covering an event.

But, if there is one piece of life advice I know about in today’s technological focused world: I need to have a social presence, a strongish social presence that is well represented. So, in order to help up my social presence, I have come up with a plan:

  1. Take 10-20 minutes a week to think about what social interests I believe my friends/followers should be aware of.
  2. Find three stimulating articles or human interest pieces to analyze and share.
  3. Post them with at least 1-2 days between, as to not become too obnoxious.

In time, I feel like this will help me post more on Facebook and Twitter, as well as help my friends/followers broaden their own minds and hopefully think outside of their own boxes.

Instagram, that is another story. I think I need help in that department, coming up with a solid plan. Accepting suggestions!

What do you do to be more social on social media?

Books to Buy

I’m always craving a good book. Here are 7 books I want to read ASAP!

Since I provided a list of the books I have been reading, I thought it would only be fair to provide a list of books I would like to read. I have two weeks before school starts and in the mean time I have been working and studying for a big test. However, I know I should read a couple good books (or more) while time is seemingly more available.

Speaking of reading books while time allows…I found that when I take time for me, like reading a book for 30 minutes every night that my life seems to be a little less stressful. I know it can seem daunting adding something into your schedule to reduce the stress, but I think it works!

As school approaches, with work and some other activities I know will keep me busy, I want to read at least three books each month. That is a little less than one book a week. I will see if I can do it!

Here are some books in my Amazon cart at this very moment!
