What I’m Doing:
I begin college this week! My books came in (finally!) yesterday and I’m so eager to dive in. I’m starting with 8 credits and hopefully I can hit it hard and start another 8 in a couple months. My goal is to take on a smaller chunk of courses at a time so I can focus more exclusively on each topic but still cover the same amount of material…we’ll see how it goes. 🙂
I decluttered my closet the other night when I couldn’t sleep. Still in the process of reducing my wardrobe. Minimizing isn’t easy, even if I’m not the type to get attached to stuff, but throwing away the things I don’t need feels wonderful. Trying to incorporate the 80/20 principle. I’ll post an update on that soon.
What I’m Reading:
Just finished The 4-Hour Work Week. Tim Ferriss. (Some cussing and questionable humor.) I highly recommend this if you want to be challenged on the definition of success that we have accepted as a society and be taught how to not waste your life doing what you don’t want (the 9-5) so maybe one day you can do what you do want (all your interests and hobbies and passions). I’m all ready to pack my backpack and take off on a six-month mini retirement…maybe next year??
The 4-Hour Chef. Ferriss shows step-by-step the most effective and efficient method of learning proficiently any skill in 3-6 months. Applying it to my Koine Greek studies. I’ll keep you posted.
What I’m Listening to:
Paper Towns. John Green. Oh tumblr, the things you make me do…
What I’m Obsessed with:
Iced coffee – coconut or almond milk, no sugar.
Coconut water. Yum.
What I’m Thinking About:
“Little children, you are of God [you belong to Him] and have [already] defeated and overcome them [the agents of the antichrist], because He Who lives in you is greater (mightier) than he who is in the world.” 1 John 4:4 AMP
