2016 Goals for Brain and Body

It’s only the second week of the year, so I’m trying to set some goals that will keep me happy and healthy.

Body Goal: I’m not going to set a number, but I did decide to take a challenge. DMU (where I work) is involved in the ALA “Fight for Air” Climb on April 10, and I signed up to do stairs on 87 floors in four of Des Moines’ tallest buildings as part of the event. I just found out I’m moving offices to the fifth floor, so I’ll have lots of opportunity to train if I take the stairs!

Brain Goal: I saw this 2016 Reading Challenge image floating around on social media, and I thought the checklist might be a good goal for reading:

I’m obsessed right now with downloading books through the library on Overdrive (just because I can get them quickly and read hands-free while I feed a baby), and loving being part of a book club. I did finish Fates & Furies at the beginning of last week, although I’m not going to recommend it because – despite some lovely writing, the dialogue and characters irked me. It’s gotten other good reviews, though!

Lastly, I have another side project happening next Friday: NON-CON 2016. I’m excited/nervous and if you’re in Des Moines and interested in advocacy at all, it should be a cool event!

    Cool and creepy book you can finish in a day (well, keep in mind I’m speaking as an empty-nester): Slade House by David Mitchell. Thanks for the interesting Reading Challenge list!
