1) Annual Melee Of Kindness
(click to visit the site)
Basically, it's 2 days of pure kindness. Yes, we should be kind every single day but the entire purpose of running AMOK is to make an extra effort!
It can be something small. Pay it forward when you get your morning coffee. Buy bottles of water for that guy spinning a sign on the corner. Personally, I've made up a bunch of anonymous notes with inspirational things written in them that I plan to leave all over my city this weekend!
So go out, be kind for a change!
2) My birthday!
That's right. I'm turning 28 next week! The next two weekends are for fun times and I'm excited. Late 20's has been, well, difficult. Maybe I'll do a drunken rambling video here soon about that....
3) Camp Nanowrimo
For those that have been my friend for the last few years, you know I participate in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) each November.
Camp Nano is a more laid back version that happens twice a year. You're put in a "cabin" with people (you can also stock your cabin with friends), you get to set your own goals (can only write 20K? Working on a screenplay or poetry? Revising? It's all good). Basically, it's just another excuse for me to hunker down and not talk about anything but my book for more months out of the year.
4) My kid's birthday.
My oldest son will be turning 6 this year. SIX. When did that happen? We've decided on a Spiderman theme at the park. (His original idea was to go walk around the mall so it's an upgrade)
I'm also hoping to start making videos again. We'll see how that goes (stop laughing)
So make the next 2 months awesome!!!
