Day 5 – Hopes for the Next Year – Giveaway 5/6

September 12, 2014 Uncategorized 10

Hiya everyone!!!!  Today is going to be a nice relaxing day of reading, sleeping and in general just vegging.  My hope is that I can reset my reading mojo and also get some much needed relaxation before I have to start doing more homework on Saturday.  I also am going out for a nice dinner with my partner in crime at RT – Rochelle.

My hopes for this next year are pretty mundane…

  • School – finish more classes and stay on the dean’s list.  I really dislike school but if I can keep this up I will be done in 2016 and can move on to the next level.
  • Personal – Eat healthier, workout and hopefully lose some weight.  I’m not good at making myself a priority but I need to get better at it.  I’m going to start taking yoga, be a bit pickier in what I eat and in general start working out more.  I hope to take things slowly but I think it is time for change.  Notice I’m not saying that I’m looking for a new relationship but if something turns up then I’m ok with that but it won’t be a priority to me.
  • Blog – I really want to find a happy balance between work, school, personal and blog life.  I hope to foster my current relationships with those who have been so generous with me over the past 2 years but I also want to grow.  I want to be more regular with my postings and hope that people will continue to enjoy what I place out here on this site.


I look forward to working and speaking with everyone!!  Thank you so much for being there for me and I hope we will continue to enjoy our love of books!!!


Today I have 2 wonderful prizes to give away!  One winner will receive the books, bag and flask while the other will receive a flask.  The flasks are items that a lot of people love including myself!!!  To enter just comment below with one of your hopes for this next year.  I’ll pick one winner for the set and one for the flask from entries received by September 19, 2014 at 11:59 pm US Central.

    My hopes for the coming year are to visit RT in Dallas with my bestie and try to move around more, I won’t say exercise because that is an ugly word, but at least walking my neighborhood. Thanks for this giveaway as I am a new but huge Kit Rocha fan.

    Happy birthday! This year I’m hoping to subdue my anxiety and depression. Loosing my dad hit me extremely hard. I’m great full for books, they’ve helped me escape a bit.
