Life Goals & Book Lists

Life Goals: Again, as per the usual, it has changed a bit.  I think I need to be more focused so I’m just going to stick to 2 this month and see what happens.

  • Learning Kannada:  I want to get super fluent in the next 4 months.  It is going to happen.  I have learned the days of the week!
  • Reading good books- that is still going strong

Reading List:

Excited that I stayed on track and got to finish 4 books last month.  My favorite was Mrs. Kennedy and Me.  It didn’t get too much into JFK and his affairs, but it was incredibly insightful and made me wish I were Jackie Kennedy.  It was fascinating reading that at the same time as I was reading about Marilyn Monroe’s life because of the alleged connection between JFK and Marilyn Monroe.
