No More Tomorrows!

There are 29 days left in this year.

TWENTY-NINE DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To make matters worse, I know I didn’t take advantage of every day. I was a firm believer in “I’ll do it tomorrow”. Well, tomorrow came and tomorrow left just as fast.

Success doesn’t come by sitting on my assets *giggles*. What I can do is make the most of each day that I’m fortunate to see. There are a lot of goals that I want to accomplish and I have to put in the work get them accomplished.

So, I got proactive during my Thanksgiving break. In order for me to get serious about being successful, I need to get organized. Take it back to my college days.

I brought a book-sized daily/weekly planner. One central location for me to keep track of blog posts, writing contest ideas, etc. Since the planner starts in January, I printed off a blank December calendar so I can get things started.

There are already four posts planned and tentatively scheduled for December. Yay me! I’m determined to make the best of the 29 days left in the year. No more tomorrows for me!

Is Christmas Over Yet?

My Christmas spirit is non-existent. Retail stores don’t let Halloween be great. Costumes are next to nutcrackers as a lead-than-subtle reminder that you might as well kill 2 birds with one stone.

*rolls eyes* It’s too much.

Speaking of force feeding the holidays, let’s discuss Christmas music. Where I live, radio stations start playing Christmas music either on or after Thanksgiving. On Nov 1, my coworker turned on her radio. What was playing? “White Christmas”. I was livid. Three weeks early.

Here’s my issue. There are new Christmas albums every year. Yes, I understand that the oldies are still goodies, but who the hell can stomach hearing the SAME songs being played EVERY SINGLE DAY?!?!?!

The madness must stop!!!

Earbuds are the only thing keeping me from running down store aisles yelling “Santa is a fraud”.

Carry on.
