Summer 2012

Summer is almost here, and instead of applying for a job or internship, I thought I’d try to accomplish a few goals:

1. Submit at least three poems to literary magazines or contests.

2. Get a tattoo (I’ve been planning this for a while, but now I just need to have the courage to go through with my plan).

3. Learn how to drive on the highway. I have my license, but I’ve never gotten over the fear of driving on the highway

4. Read a different poem every day and figure out which poets I like.

5. And last but certainly not least read:

  •  East of Eden
  • Othello
  • Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close*
  • Interpreter of Maladies and The Namesake
  • The Time Traveller’s Wife*
  • The Mill on the Floss
  • Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
  • Captain Corelli’s Mandolin*
  • A Tree Grows in Brooklyn*
  • Looking for Alaska
  • Any book by Ursula Le Guin*
  • Love in the Time of Cholera
  • Alice Bliss*
  • Slaughterhouse Five
  • Lolita
*recommended to me from my post Calling all English Nerds.
If you have any other books you think I should read, or any other goals you think I should have, please let me know!
