Spring is in the air.

Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!"

So this is my first real life blog. I've been following some bloggers for a while now and decided I have my own two cents to add.

As I came to this decision I thought...is it because of spring I want to start a Blog?
Those who know me know I like to start projects...I do my best to finish them, but some are way over my head and I'm just too stubborn to accept defeat. I'm competitive that way.

Examples:
1.IronMan. The reason I ran the Cleveland Marathon last year was because I wanted to participate in a Full Iron Man (
Distance: 2.4 mi. swim, 112 mi. bike, 26.2 mi. run)
My logic: I was on my neighborhood swim team for 10 years, I've participated in Pedal to the Point (fund raiser for MS) but I had never ran farther than the Hermes 10 miler...do a marathon and you'll be ready to do a 1/2 Iron Man (required before you can sign up for a full)
Realization: never gonna happen...unless I quit my job and hire someone to make me stop drinking and take all the fun out of my life.

2. Screen Play writing. I love the Dark Tower series by Steven King. I love it so much that I'm on my third round of reading them (all 7 books). If it were to be turned into a movie it would be epic, like Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter or even Twilight (all of which I have never read or watched).
My Logic: I love all the characters and i know the story, the outcome. I should be able to put it all together and write a screen play.
Realization: too much love...when i read it i forget all about the movie...except the one going on in my head.

3. Homeowner. Two years ago, when i was living with my mom, I decided to find a house to buy. So i did all my research and started applying for loans and such.
My Logic: I'm 20-something and should be making some sort of commitment, if not toward a relationship then owning property.
Realization: bad credit...thanks college.

What have you attempted? fail? or succeeded? was because spring was in the air?

with the weather turning for the better here in NEO go out and party.
but read my blog first.

  1. I'd say the first step to acheiveing your dreams is to write them down first. Looks like you're well on your way, yet still rational. Are you a good goal setter? I find it hard to and perhaps it's because I don't write them down.
