  • Around, around new years I´m still in pretty really lost in this year,

  • and, I felt like while I had learned really a lot academically,

  • as a person I hadn't really learned a lot. I was still the same person that I wasn't pursuing any passion as in growing. I was just kind of, you know,

  • being me, and reacting to the world around me. And I was not happy with this

  • So I made a video about that and then

  • I also decided there's a new year's resolution

  • that I was gonna reading 52 books in 2018.

  • One book every week.

  • And I'm about twenty books in and

  • I'm gonna be real it's changing my life. When I was a kid

  • I was a big book worm, I read books all the time.

  • You know, Harry Potter, Series of Unfortunate Events,

  • Enders game that whole series, I just

  • I love them, and I can thank my mom for that because she is a published author

  • and, you know, this lasted

  • pretty much my entire elementary school career

  • and all of a sudden

  • I fell out of love. Its not anything that changed in,

  • me but I kind of blame

  • the school system for this.

  • okay ! and here is why : so the problem

  • with the way reading is

  • approached in school is that

  • it associates a reward with the act of reading.

  • that is, if you read a book, then you

  • do well on your presentation or on your test or on your essay.

  • It turns it into a transaction.

  • so now when you take away that reward of grades,

  • well, you are doing what feels like work! ugh,

  • because previously you exchanged it for a reward,

  • but now there is NO reward. So when it comes to

  • choosing between, yOu KnOw, reading or going

  • your phone or something else that is pleasurable

  • you are gonna choose going or your phone or doing something else.

  • because reading is a chore. It's work.

  • There is no reward for that work, so when I Started of

  • reading a book every week,

  • it was tough, it felt like a chore with no reward, duh,

  • because that how i've been trained

  • by school.

  • so i defined two issue is one motivation

  • which the fix honest doesn't matter the time

  • i just have to read a few books before

  • i started to think ,hey this is very impactful

  • this is really fun ,this is a kind of starting to

  • change my life of seeing the world a little bit different ,for last lesson

  • i'm learning ,i'm actually started to apply to my life

  • i should keep doing this

  • this is pretty fun.

  • and then kind of be keep of addictive

  • so them is came to the question

  • how do i find out the time

  • and what i learn is that

  • if i can cove* out

  • blocks of time through of a day

  • so little bit time i wake up

  • sometime before you go to bed

  • sometime i'll take a around after

  • eatting meal with my friend

  • i'll take a round for after ten-fifteen minutes

  • you known if i take a bus somewhere.

  • and i'll greeting on the bus. just finding those little moment

  • thought of the day , they really do act up , and you can

  • end up spending what an hour half, two hour every day

  • just like picking those ten minute here, fifteen there

  • and spending them reading at the post to being on your phone or whatever

  • so i twenty weeks and then

  • i feel like different* some of the twenty best week

  • in my life some of twenty week for as change the most *

  • dissaperson , i mean what i say

  • like feel like a different person and that is changing my life .

  • because the way what i've looking at the world is complete different

  • the way i look at myself and in the mirror is different

  • the way i look at myself and in the mirror is different

  • and that is really excited to me

  • beacause twenty weeks is not very long time

  • and a grand give things so where am i get another twenty weeks

  • and another twenty weeks, and another twenty weeks

  • that can keep this happened up keep this personal develop going

  • that is really excited to me

  • and then become

Around, around new years I´m still in pretty really lost in this year,
