January, It's a Wrap

The first month of the new year is almost wrapped. A few hours left to go. Are you still buzzing off of your New Year's goals or resolutions? I'm not. Reality has hit me and I'm back to the feeling that there are not enough hours in the day to do all the things I want to do. It's frustrating  because I feel 2013 got off to a slow start. However, rather than beat myself up (something I usually do in my blog posts), I'm going to take the advice of my college friend ChaChanna, and dust off my shoulders and get back into the game.

In ChaChanna's newsletter Your Stellar Star, she reminds her readers that 80 percent of people usually quit their resolutions by January 20 of each year. I'm happy to say that I haven't gone that far, but I do recognized that I'm overwhelmed by school at the moment and that has set me back with my screenwriting objectives. The good thing is that I recognize my problem. Now I need to take ChaChanna's advice and get back into the game. Every day I get a new opportunity. It's up to me to capitalize on it.

While everybody is getting ready for Superbowl XVLII this weekend, I'll spend my time catching up on class assignments and picking up where I left off on the screenwriting front. I also would like to spend a few hours on Saturday and Sunday getting ready to paint some walls in our house. This is another project that is long over due. For now I'll add it to my  short list. 

I'm not sure what the Raven's and 49ers game plans will be this Superbowl Sunday, but I can tell you mine is to keep my focus and not just get back in the game, but bring my A game. It's in me, I just need to bring it to the surface.
