I had just bought a book that consists of 300 writing prompts; One of those prompts was this: “Write about three realistic goals you would like to achieve in your lifetime.” Well, in actuality, I have those three goals, and that would be this: To keep my mind focused on the job in which I had gotten last year, which, as I have addressed to many a reader who has read my blog for the past 6 ½ years, happens to be a food service cleaner for a company called Sodexo at the Patterson Dining Facility at the Dover Air Force Base in Dover, Delaware; If I want to have enough money so that I could live in my own apartment as well as somehow be able to drive a car, then my goal would be to keep my eyes fixed on my job. If I do a poor job on it, then I would end up getting fired, and then THAT would be a most terrible thing, and then I would have to start job searching all over again.
Another goal would be to write another book, but this time, it would not be just an eBook-It would be a print book, too, and that is something that I would very much like to have my mind set on once I leave WordPress and blogging near the end of June (Again, as I have stated before, I shall announce the exact date in a later post). Last summer, I had done a pretty good job on keeping my mind focused on writing goals, such as doing a special series on Chicago TV legends; Now, due to the announcement that I am ending my blog and leaving WordPress in a few months, I would not be doing any more special series on any topic or subject. However, I will be doing special posts in which I would be writing about things that have made my blog so very special in the past 6 ½ years, so keep your eyes peeled for those…
Lastly, there is one other goal that I do, and that is doing a podcast: I had just started the second season of my podcast, KALEIDOSCOPE Time, over at the podcasting website, Anchor.fm, and this new season has a different episode every week in which I shine the spotlight on a certain subject; If you would like to take a listen to my podcast, then please head on over to www.anchor.fm/kaleidoscope-time. I am beginning to love doing this podcast as I think almost anyone. Now, as far as next season goes, I do not know yet if this podcast is going to be retooled as a standalone podcast and not based on anything, but I am planning on doing that kind of task.
In the next month, I shall be writing the next-to-last SWIRLING COLORS newsletter over at Tumblr (www.itsjennw.tumblr.com); Now, as most of you bloggers and blog followers out there who have been with me for the past 6 ½ years have already known by quite now, SWIRLING COLORS is a companion blog to this very blog in which you are reading right now, KALEIDOSCOPE. Now, I do not have any plans as of yet if SWIRLING COLORS is going to be re-branded into a standalone blog and/or the name would be changed once I leave WordPress in June, but I am working on it, and it is too early to announce anything; As the coming months go by and that I would be figuring out what would be next concerning the future for my soon-to-be-former companion blog as well as my podcast, then I shall be the one to announce these things to you.
In the meantime, I am guessing that it is going to be a very productive week ahead for me…
