I had a wonderful time participating in 2014 so I decided to really pump up my game this time. For Christmas, I received a video game, The Sims 4, that I realized is easy to play without any of the sound on so I can read and play video games at the same time. Naturally, that inspired me to really set a tough challenge for myself because anything that lets me multitask reading with something is golden. Instead of going Stenographer again this time I decided skip from the paltry 12 audio reads goal I did last year—to really set a hard challenge for myself—and go all the way up to MY PRECIOUS 30-50

I figure that give me a rough goal of about 270 hours of listening for the year at minimum or about 5 hours and 20 minutes a week to fit in. See how I just mathed and made it seem like a reasonable achievable goal? Ask me again if I think that was smart in 11 months. lol
