The Think Write Thursday topic for June 15, 2017 is to consider what it means to be at the halfway point of the year. Did you state some intentions for 2017? If so, check in on them and give us an update.

I didn't really set resolutions or official goals for the year. Although I did want to be mindful about spending. And I suppose I'm doing better on the financial front, so there's that. I also wanted to continue last year's "Year of Badassery" by having Fierce as my word this year. I'm not so sure I'm living up to it. But, I'm still stepping out of my comfort zone in several areas, so there's that. I set a reading goal of 60 books and I'm on track to meet it, so there's that.

Until the past week, I've felt like this year was going along great. Then all the substantial changes at school hit me in one fell swoop and I feel overwhelmed. Plus some health concerns of family members are weighing on me, although I am not in panic mode (yet). BUT--it's the beginning of summer vacation! I just got new tires put on my car and I'm ready to roll for adventures, hijinks, and shenanigans!

I started keeping track of books I have read and it is kind of impressive to see the long list grow. 60 in a year is a good goal! And shenanigans, always something to work towards!

It is amazing at how a few glitches can throw us off course. Hope your summer break provides time to regroup.
