Okay, it’s time to be honest. I’ve been lagging the last few days. Every since I took a day off on Friday. It seems like everything around me is just pushing me to NOT be on track to succeed.
I hoped to turn that around tomorrow. Why tomorrow you ask? Well, restarting is important. It’s kind of like when you’ve already played through a video game and now you really know how the controls work. You just have to go through all the motions again to do it. That’s exactly where I’m at right now.
I planned on going to the gym today, but yesterday I found out I got my W-2 form from work. Little did I know, that my W-2 is actually sitting on the floor of my old bosses house with the other no-longer employees. That meant slightly annoyed when I came into the city today with my tax forms hoping to get them done and over with and have that fat check in the mail.
Instead, I put my money towards something I’d been meaning to get since Monday. Tickets to see Neil Gaiman. He is by far one of my inspirations in writing, and his Sandman series showed me how much more comics can be that superhero comics. His writing fascinates me in the same way that Douglas Adams does. And he’s just a brilliant man. I bought four tickets for my roommate, two friends, and myself to go and I can’t wait.
However, that still meant that I didn’t go to the gym today. I didn’t do my usual reading on the way into work. Instead, I just read a graphic novel that I’d been meaning to reread. It just feels like when you’re off kilter everything in the world sort of pushes you to be more off kilter.
That has to change tomorrow. I plan to get up tomorrow morning and go to the gym. I’ll do my body-weight workout. Then, I’ll come home and shower. I’ll put my money from tonight towards Rent/Gym/Wells Fargo Card payment to keep myself from spending it. I’ll make sure that my food I have in my fridge comes with me tomorrow and I eat it.
I’ve just got to get through the rest of the day without doing anything too crazy. I need to keep my money in check and look over/redo my budget for February into March. Things have to remain tight this month so that I can make sure that I have enough money for my trip in March. There’s a lot of things that are on my plate and I need to make sure that I do not backslide further. I want to finish my third novella to complete the first novel. I want to go to New Orleans, and be the best shape of my life. I want to have some money stashed away and pay my bills. I can’t do this by going backwards.
Here we go. I’m read. Rebirth in three….two….one…
