What posts in June? Oh, thooooose thirty posts in June… again. It seems that for the fourth year in a row I’ve climbed aboard the daily blogging train and continued that monumental, multi-year writing effort to string a topic or idea across the vast reaches of years. Each day a new post on a new topic, but on the same blog-per-day topic as last year, creating another set of Those 30 Posts in June. Today, that post just happens to be:
June 7th // Something You Have Failed
A’la the state of last year’s topic –when it occurred to me that it’s not so much the major epic fails of my life that need highlighting, but the graceful or ordinary ones– I’ve decided for a laundry list of missed aspirations, unfulfilled deeds, broken promises, and fumbling personal flaws.
phoning my grandmother | edging the grass | meeting my running goals this month | keeping the house as clean as it should be | finishing baylee the bee | a summer to-do list | volunteering | brushing the dog’s teeth | core exercises | playing games more often with Claire | super-awesome-game nights | obtaining a functioning bicycle | drinking more water | drinking more tea | drinking less milk | cross-posting | multi-blogging | charging my phone | roller blading or inline skating (whatever you call it) | recording family videos | push ups | cutting back on sweets | pixel gaming photos | sunset photos | rain and storm photos | back rubs for my wife | turning off the tv | finishing those novels I’ve been reading | avoiding being grumpy | going to be early | stretching | focus | happy | keeping touch | returning emails | giving voice | failing gracefully
Perhaps I’ll do better next year.
