Normally Rachel and I would be doing our goal post together, but Rachel has come down with a cold, so I will be doing it on my own.
Here is how we did on our goals and what this weeks goals will be:
Kiki: I’m 2-4 this week. I worked on my novel and I watched a movie. Actually, I watched several movies: Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull, Great Expectations (2012), Transformers and Her Alibi. I did not finish a book. I hardly read at all, which does not bode well for the book part of my 50/50 challenge. I also did not apply for my visa or passport card. To be fair, the reason I did not apply for my card or visa is because I do not have a job, though not for lack of trying.
New Goals: 1) Read a book 2) Watch a movie 3) Find a job 4) Write up the story I’m working on 5) Work on my novel
Rachel: I have no idea if Rachel accomplished her goals. I’m pretty sure she watched a movie and probably read a book. I know that she did not research vaccinations. As for photography…well, she took the camera to the interview, but I was not paying attention, so I can’t say for sure. We’ll say she’s 3-4.
New Goals: 1) Practice photography 2) Read at least one book and 3) Get over her cold
Collective Goals: 1) Practice Arabic 2) Blog about something new
I would also like to direct anyone who is interested to the following news stories. You are probably aware that North Korea will be launching a satellite this week. The world is a little nervous. Not about the satellite, but about the ballistic missile and the possibility that they are preparing for an underground nuclear test. North Korea has allowed a number of foreign journalists in to the country to watch the launch. Here are a few of Richard Engel’s dispatches.
Here they are:
