(Y-10) 44 days…next milestone achieved

From the hands of genius writer Alan Moore, I have achieved another milestone for this tenth year of my crazy project.

The book that put me on the other side was Mr. Moore’s Lovecraftian tale of Providence, the second issue to be precise.

It has been quite a long time since I read something new from one of my favorite authors, and as always he does not disappoint.

Slowly and beautifully the story becomes weirder and more complex.

Now for the number portion of the day.

  • Total pages for (Y-10) : 27,648 pages.
  • Pages to go to reach next milestone (second best year of reading): COMPLETED.
  • Pages to go to reach main goal of this year (read more than the two last years combined): 6,086 pages.
  • And lastly, Pages to go to reach my ultimate milestone (best year ever of reading): 20,057 pages.

I’ll spend the rest of my morning probably trying to read a couple more issues of Providence and have a stab at The Wise Man’s Fear, currently on page 327.

Back to it then.

(Y-10) Caffeine Pilgrimage, Black Coffee Gallery

Let me begin by telling that I know that Black Coffee Gallery is a chain store, that being said, I’ll let that slide only because it is a Mexican chain and each of its stores have the works of one particular graphic artist.

Here in Ciudad Juarez, there are two stores, I went to the newest one and found it to be quite pleasant, not overcrowded, with great natural light to read for hours.

I did not have any pastries but I did enjoy a giant Americano and it was right on point.

I could not find any info of who is the artist of the pieces hanging on the walls, but when I do, I’ll do a follow-up post with more information.

And I’ll visit the other location to try out some other drinks, some pastries and to see some original artwork.

Drink of Choice: Americano (for now)

Best Hour (for my taste):  9:30 for an invigorating morning read.

 

Another badge of honor

I will like to take this small blip to thank each and everyone who reads and likes my entries.

This blog is a reflection of all that I love and it is exhilarating to see that someone reads this line, lines that keep me sane and pushing.

Onward then, into the unknown.

(Y-10) 47 days…an involuntary hiatus

The past two weeks have been just a blur.

I started classes for my master’s degree, in Urban planning and development in case you were wondering, and to get the hang of things, this of course after 11 years of graduation from my bachelor’s degree, take a few time to get used to again.

But things are falling into place and I am catching my rhythm again.

I planned to schedule my whole day so I can squeeze in some hours of reading.

Of course, for the next two years, I do not plan to have gargantuan reading numbers, but at least decent ones.

So, I bought a daily planner and I am prepping my new bullet journal for the 11th year of reading, this two things will be my lifelines in order to achieve some decent numbers.

And talking about numbers, here is where I currently stand:

  • Total pages for (Y-10) : 27,283 pages.
  • Pages to go to reach next milestone (second best year of reading): 335 pages.
  • Pages to go to reach main goal of this year (read more than the two last years combined): 6,451 pages.
  • And lastly, Pages to go to reach my ultimate milestone (best year ever of reading): 20,422 pages.

Right now I’ll take some time to schedule my days and read a few pages of The Wise Man’s Fear.

Happy Readings and wish me luck.

(Y- 10) 56 days…for the night is dark and full of reading

As the clock ticks down on this year, I have become really self aware of the predicament in front of me.

I would love to read all day, every day, but the truth of things is that I have started with a new chapter of my life.

So, for the next two years, I predict some really low number years, but I can assure you that I’ll come back with a vengeance.

With the sound of rolling thunder in the background, I’ll make the most of this few little breaths and try to sum up some pages.

Happy Readings!!!

(Y-10) 59 days… back to The Dreaming

In the little off time that I had this week, I read the return of The Sandman, creation of the multi-talented and my all time favourite Author Neil Gaiman.

He leaves his creation in really able hands, and I am hopeful that this is going to be a great new run of this mesmerizing world that I discovered almost 20 years ago.

Give yourself to explore this and all of the previous chapters of one of The greatest stories ever told.

Now, I’ll take advantage of being wide awake and do some more reading.

(Y-10) 61 days… finding my zen

The hardest part, in my experience, is finding balance.

In my case, I am trying to find the balance between my beloved personal project and my beloved life.

So, in the spirit of my crazy ideas planning mind, I came to the conclusion that an exhaustive planned agenda is in order.

I will use both a conventional weekly planner and my trustworthy bullet journal to plan the shit out of my day and try to fulfill my reading goals without sacrificing the rest of my life.

I have some work ahead of me.

I’ll keep you posted.

(Y-10) 63 days… getting back to normal.

This whole week has been kind of a blur.

I’ll have to do a ton of planning but I am confident that balance between my reading project and my new education project.

Today I made some headway with The Wise Man’s Fear and plan to close out the day reading it.

Tomorrow, I will update my numbers and set some goals.

Happy Readings!!!

(Y-10) 65 days… do not dwell on it

This week has been quite hectic.

Today is turning up to be another one with out a single breathe to spare.

I’ll try to keep awake, at least to squeeze in some reading.

not promising anything.

Happy Readings!!!
