Goals Summary 2020 – wk #22

This week went by pretty quick. Again. For a minute, I felt more normal. I don’t know if that makes sense, but we got out of the house for a couple of hours and I think that helped.

Last Week

  • Tavi revisions
  • Post another HQR video
  • Read 100pgs of The Priory of the Orange Tree
  • Write 800+ words

How’d I do?

  • Tavi revisions
    • Yep. Not a ton, but enough to count it as progress.
  • Post another HQR video
    • … No. This one’s intimidating. I don’t know how to talk about this book. I’ll try again this week.
  • Read 100pgs of The Priory of the Orange Tree
    • Hahaha, no.
  • Write 800+ words
    • No, but I did write a bit and finally finished that fanfic piece I was stuck on. So, hurray!

Weekly Word Count: 440

I’ve been all over the place this week. I seriously considered working out, but didn’t. I played more Dragon Age, which was nice and sufficiently escapist. I revised nine chapters of Tavi, but didn’t really read much and have a bunch of work work to do this week and the world’s on fire and I think I need to take a break. Specifically a social media break. But, this is important. It feels wrong to back away, feels wrong to press pause. But I’m sitting here on the verge of tears after a day of consuming videos and press releases and protesters’ comments.

It’s important. This moment, this movement is IMPORTANT. I am a middle class, CIS White woman. I am pretty damn far removed from the experiences that fuel these protests and still I am exhausted. I am emotionally shredded. And this feeling is a farce compared to what Black people in America face every day.

There’s a march scheduled for this Saturday. I plan to be there.

Besides blog posts, I am avoiding social media today. It’s not even 10am and already that’s proved a lot harder than it should be. This break is going to be good for me.

So, What’s Next?

  • Tavi Revisions
  • HQR video
  • Read something
  • Write 800+ words

You know. Lather, rinse, repeat. The day job is ratcheting up because there’s only two weeks of school left, I imagine that the first two weeks of June will be slow writing/editing-wise.

I just gotta stay afloat for 12 more days and then it’s summer and my time is officially my own.

Until then, Bloggos.
