I've Been Neglecting a Couple of Things

First of all, I've been neglecting this blog. I think my last post was in January. Which was a significant space backwards in time.
Second, I've been neglecting Beyond Suburbia, my longest writing project to date (currently, I have just over 20,000 words). It's essentially the story of a suicide and a long trek - through the afterlife. Connor can tell you all about it.
I know no one reads this, but I don't really care.
Regardless, I've decided to take on both of my forgotten projects, in addition to a few new ones (namely languages - French and German and Latin, in addition to Spanish, which I'm almost conversational in).
I'm also trying to read 132 books in summer (before August 13, that is). I've already read eleven, which is not going to cut it if I want to read 121 more, but I'll manage it. I always manage.
So my summer is going to be packed with productivity - I'm taking a correspondence course in French I, I'm learning the basics of Latin grammar and vocabulary, I'm going to write 60,000 more words in my story, I'm going to read a total of 132 books, and I plan on volunteering at the library. I was going to get a job, but there's just too much that I want to do.
No one can say I don't have a hobby.
I haven't read two of the books I have to this summer. One is on the founding fathers, and another one is a play.

i read your 'crazy? i was crazy post' and then took it from there. you got a cool style.
keep up the blog - occasionally, random people do see, read, appreciate and respond.
good luck w/ the novel. novel's are bitches. make the manuscript squeal like a pig.

What do you mean, I can tell them all about it? It's too long and convoluted.
