Good news: I’ve tackled things on my “To-do” list.
Bad news: I’ve added more stuff.
I’ve found that making lists really helps me, even with everyday stuff, normal stuff. So if I know I’ll have a busy day, or a busy week, I’ll set some time to write everything down and make a list; either on my phone or in my little notepad I carry with me.
As those things are checked off, I also look at my “year’s goals” lists, to see what can get down when I’m done very important things—career wise. I’ve made one for acting and writing, just to make sure I’m not slacking off all year. I have certain goals I want to accomplish and I did pretty well last year, so here’s to keeping the tradition going!
Oh man, this week has been brutal and it just started. One word of note—the new podcast episode will not be released this week as the stories I had lined up had to cancel and a new weather storm will delay the next one. Ugh, isn’t it spring yet? =_=
I’ve been so slow with my reading list lately, but I pledge to get better about it. Right now, I’m reading A Song of Ice and Fire: A Feast for Crows, Showrunners: The Art of Running a TV Show, Hand to Mouth: Living in Bootstrap America, and Gone Girl.
I know I’ve been reading Gone Girl, but I’d hit some boring parts and I briefly put the book down. I know the movie is out and thanks to the Academy Awards, I know a piece of the 3rd act (so thanks for that!). But I’m gonna hang in there and finish it before I see the movie… that’ll be out on cable soon.
Today’s podcast episode is my own story about good fortune. This is about the first— and only time thus far— that I’ve ever had to stay in the hospital. It was scary, but I was happy they found the problem. It’s amazing the little sleep you get when you have to stay in the hospital, but at least people get to sneak you in great food!
