My priorities are clear to me, and I must be completely honest: blogging is not near the top.
But I know there are people who read this blog, and I don’t want to completely give up on it. So, in 2017 I would like to produce one post per week, be it a life update, review, poem, short story, etc. That way I can keep this blog active, but I can let myself focus on other things that are more important to me right now.
I made a list of all I need to focus on. These are things that are important to me. They are what make me feel productive. I’ve been wasting far too much of my time recently, and I know I’ve said that before. For a while I got myself into that mood of being completely focused, but I’ve lost it again. Maybe this time I can actually stick with it.
God. I would like to spend more time praying and in the Bible. I was doing that for a while, and it helped so much. I’ve got to do it more.
School. I think I might have managed straight As last semester, and I would like to maintain those grades for the rest of the school year.
Writing. I want to be a published author by the end of high school, and it’s really hittin me that if I’m going to accomplish that that I need to be working a lot harder on my stories.
Music. I have been really slacking off. I haven’t picked up my trumpet in a few months and I’ve barely played piano at all and I want to start training my voice and not just casually singing. I know if I focus, I’ll be able to do some research and teach myself to better sing and play these instruments.
Magic. I really do love learning magic tricks, and I haven’t done it since summer vacation. My uncle gave me some more stuff on magic, and I’d like to really immerse myself in the art and become good at it.
Reading. Books are amazing, and I simply haven’t been reading enough of them.
So there we have it. Those six things will be taking up all my time. I hope to make a post every week, but if I miss I am not going to be hard on myself about it.
I’m sorry if it upsets you that I no longer am very motivated to write this blog, but this is the truth about how I want to be living my life. I may find new things to add to my priorities in the future once school is over, but as of now this is what I know I need to be doing, and I’m taking to the step to actually make myself do it.
