Because I can't think of a better title, I now present to you - "From 25.0 to 25.5":
As it turns out, "No screens after 9pm" takes a bit more planning and foresight than we originally thought. Melissa and I have broken that rule more often than not over the past 8 days. Now, while that might seem sad and pathetic, it's actually been because of our wild productivity.
In the past 8 days:
1. We made, largely from scratch, our wedding invitations, RSVPs, and all that stuff.
2. We've put together a website (blog) for the wedding.
3. We've collaborated on my Life Reference project.
4. We (well, I) have read 2/3rds of an e-book.
5. I put together the video featured earlier.
It seemed silly to stop working on these really important, huge goals in the name of a smaller, 30 day goal. Rather than give up on doing a 30 day challenge this month, we are going to attempt to read 5 books this month.
I'm 2/3rds the way through Dan Brown's "Inferno" (the 4th book of the series that started with "The Da Vinci Code"). While it's not entirely original, it's still highly entertaining. Next up, a book about happy marriages that our officiant wants us to read. After that: Who knows. All I know is, I've gotta go so I can get some reading done.
The picture to go out on is a random pick from my surprisingly long list of "Pictures to eventually feature in the Column":
4. Oculus - a round (or eyelike) opening or design
3. I haven't been keeping track of words very well and just realized I forgot to mention in the column up there that I hurt my shoulder playing basketball. I should be fine, but I'm going to have to take it easy for a while.
2. Avarice - extreme greed for wealth
1. Dilettante - a person who essentially fakes an interest or expertise in a given area
“Why is 'no screens after 9' more difficult than 'remove everything you normally eat from your diet'?”
