Day two of my first quarter update for my this-time-around mission

Start Date: October 2012 & End Date: September 2013
Number of tasks completed in November: 13 for a total, including October's, of 24/ 101

He...hem and so to continue from yesterday:

Books-wise, I seemingly got many read in November but that's a lie, really since what I finished was:
His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman, a trilogy that includes:
13_The Golden Compass
14_The Subtle Knife
15_The Amber Spyglass, two of which, not unreasonably, #s13 $ 14, I finished in October, but was unwilling to count the whole of it done until I'd finished #15.
Lastly, I read:
10_A Briefer History of Time by Stephen Hawking, which I actually not only understood when I read it, but continue to understand even to this very day so...YAY!! There's hope for me still!

Great Courses-wise, I watched and thoroughly enjoyed:
23_The Genius of Michangelo because where has been the ART in my life?!?

Netflix-wise, I watched:
29_Stephen Hawking & the Theory of Everything and, seriously, how well did I coordinate that, huh? Goes right along with his book I read (see above) so, let's hear it for reinforcement!!

Drawing-wise, I did one:
35_ Piece 1_Abstract Iceflow, which took me a month and a half, but finish it I did. I'm supposed to do nine, meaning I have myself set-up to do nine drawings by October. I grow concerned.

On-the-other-hand, Writing-wise, I did good, quite good, having finished:
45_ Aaron Matthews
46_ Three Questions
47_Tomorrow Will Come Soon Enough
48_Ethan Is… with Golden Watchman, the first three of which are the other three from that WIP story meme I mentioned yesterday with the fourth being, much to my delight, a new story combined with an older one which wasn't something I had planned on doing, it just worked out that way!! So, yeah...ain't life grand!

Organization-wise, I completed two projects:
90_Create picture wall in art room, which I posted pictures of some little while back
95_ Research & Purchase Frankoma Pottery & Wexford Pressed Glass because, I have collected both for ages, but randomly and without concern, but having decided I want to now use them to replace our normal dishes, I ebayed what I was still missing. A lot as it turns out and it was wild there for awhile, I'd have several bids going at once, was distracted constantly about what day it was, what time it was etc. I had SO much fun both winning and loosing and now, with both combined, we have swell new (actually, quite old) dishes.

For the sake of full disclosure, I added two new writing tasks:
44_Jamey & Jaxon, a story idea now renamed Caught in the Light of His Eyes
98_Participate in one writing challenge_The QAF Gift Exchange

Hopefully, coding gods willing, I won't double-post this entry like I (due to an LJ hiccup, yeah, no seriously) yesterday. Wish me smooth sailing. Until next time, I am ever yours.
