【Ideas, ideas, ideas!】

(Contributed by Michelle)
So, I have a lot of ideas. This is both a good and a bad thing. It’s good, because I can work on many things, but it’s bad because I have so many that I just don’t know where to start or how to go about accomplishing them.
One idea that I have been pondering for quite some time is an English study journal. In a lot of classes, I have been making surefire recommendations on how to study new vocabulary and phrases. I think for some students, it’s as easy as just grabbing a blank notebook and following my instructions; however, I think it would be a lot better if I made one with Japanese support and guidance so everyone could learn more. Plus, I could sell it online, as well as in bookstores. You know me… I love money! $$$$
I recently spoke with my Japanese friend about this and asked her to do some basic research. I don’t think there is anything like this on the Japanese market or anywhere in the world. I also think it would benefit everyone. It would, of course, help those just starting to learn conversational English, but it would also benefit advanced and super students as well.
It’s funny. It wasn’t until right now that I realized just how big this idea is. I know it will take some time to perfect it, but the path seems so much clearer now. I guess I’ve got some work to do.
As I look at my calendar, I can see that I’m pretty booked all weekend, so I hope my excitement for this new project of mine doesn’t wane. I know…. I’m going to put it in my new daily planner for next Tuesday.
Ok. So, I’m writing this down right now. Next Tuesday, I will brainstorm my ideas. Wahoo!

If there are topics or grammar points you want to work on, let me know. I definitely will have a section for articles (a/an, the), so don’t worry. 😉
Thanks for reading.
