Today's post is a bit more personal, as I wanted to take an opportunity to make myself accountable. See, I've not always been good at seeing things through. So, this is me putting it out on the internet, ten things I want to achieve.
10) Lose weight
There's a reason I hate having my picture taken. I don't like how I look, feel or weigh. So, my goal now is to do something about it. I know this isn't the most original goal in the world, but it's something I'm setting for myself.
9) Attend Conferences and Conventions
For too long I've been in a comfort zone with what I read. I either read what I'm required to read for my PhD. work or stuff that I feel comfortable reading. I need to break away, to start reading things that challenge me, make me feel, and to remember how much fun it can be to experience through the written word.
4) Make More Art
I've done acting, drawing and singing. I miss doing all of that. I want to enjoy doing art again. Even if it's just goofy drawings.
4) Be A Better Friend
I've had multiple ideas for short films, and have not pulled the trigger on any of them. It's way past time that I remembered why I got an MFA in Directing in the first place. Even if it's a goofy short, I want to feel that thrill of making something again.
2) Write More!
1) Be An Awesome Husband
The Mimsus is awesome and deserves an equally awesome husband. My most important goal is to be improve as a husband. If I can do that, I can do ANYTHING!
