Since I am new around here, and I don't really have set posts yet, I thought I would share some facts about me here and there (or as I think of them lol).
FACT: I am OBSESSED with Harry Potter.
No, I didn't wait in long lines until midnight dressed as a student of Hogwarts when a new movie premiered at the theater, but I have all 7 books and all 8 movies. Anytime my fiancee wants to get my attention or get me to really watch TV with him (not crochet and listen to TV) he will turn on Harry Potter. I will literally put down whatever it is I am doing and watch, even though I've seen it before.
I have a confession to make though...
I've only ever read the first book.
*slaps hand over mouth*
I know, I know... Seems ludicrous to call myself obsessed, but when the books came out, I was at an age where reading really wasn't something I enjoyed. I really loved the first book though, and I finished it in time to see the first movie in the theater shortly after.
I would say that the first book got my love of reading sparked. After reading the book, then watching the movie, I made it a goal to read all the books before seeing the movies in the theater. Well that plan obviously fell through. The movies came out, I watched them all (over and over) and I still hadn't read more then that first book.
FACT: I'm good at making goals for myself and writing them down, but not so good at completing them.
I really want to work on this. So I'm going to start a new goal list, but I'm not going to put a time limit on it. I think that's why whenever I do make goals, I rarely ever reach them by the time I've allotted myself.
First on my list of goals will be to start reading my Harry Potter series.
Wish me luck!
Do you make goals often? Do you have a hard time completing them?
