I thought I’d make a post on the “projects” I’m currently working on, because calling them “projects” makes me feel like I’m actually achieving something in my Summer break, instead of just sitting playing Candy Crush on Facebook, and learning how to make porridge so it doesn’t just taste like milky glue. And I get to feel a bit professional if I say I have “projects” I’m working on. But to be honest I’m spending most of my time playing with the milky glue I made to eat, and staring at blank Word documents. For the purpose of this blog entry we’ll go with ‘projects’ though. It sounds better than ‘stuff I’m sort of doing’.
I’m Writing a Novel
Which means I write a terrible paragraph per day and call it progress. I have 10 pages, so I’m doing okay. It’s about a woman who comes home to find her husband on the sofa with another woman. And they’re not watching television.
I’m Writing a Series of Monologues
(And I’m unwilling to admit that these are from the point of view of fruits, and unwilling to put them on my writing blog just yet in case any vegetables get jealous. And in case anyone begins to question my mental state).
I’m Learning Italian
I’m listening to a CD voiced by a very angry Italian woman. She’s very aggressive and threatening, so I’ve been turning the CD off after a short time so I don’t end up weeping uncontrollably.
I’m Learning to Decorate Cakes
I bought a magazine and looked at the pictures and everything. Now it’s just time to turn my oven on and buy some icing.
I also have 35 books to read before I start university this year. I’ve read a total of two. What are you currently working on?
