If You Build It, They Will Come.

I had a bad day,

...for no other reason than I'm in a valley. But the only way to go from here is up.

Just one of those days. I'm starting to get sick of this path I'm on, and I'm looking to do something drastic soon. Not scary drastic, something good. I hope.

...So Build It.

Well the christmas party was a blast. I got an awesome cotton candy maker. Also, it was my first christmas with Erin, so it was very nice. Although, nice is one of those words girls hate to hear, nice is really what it was. It was exciting, and wonderful and all that, but moreso just nice, comfortable. It felt right.

My job is starting to drive me crazy. Not that it's a bad job, or that I don't like the people I work with, or anything like that. Not at all. In fact I spent a good bit of time last week making ringtones. Yes, making ringtones, by singing them into a phone, and then setting them as my ringtone.

The problem is, as fun as that is, it's time I'm wasting. I've burned over a year at my job right now, and while I'm too sensible to just up and quit, I've also put a career that I went to school for on hold for far longer than I thought I would. I've been writing, sure. I've meant well. I've meant to do a lot of things that never got going. And everyday I go to my job is another day I'm reminded that it's not what I should be doing. At the beginning of every eight hour shift, I look at what my day will be, and realize that I'll have to put off what I'm good at and what I love until tomorrow. Then tomorrow comes, and I slap that damn nametag on again and put it off another day.

The good news is, for the first time in a while, I'm feeling better, as if there is a light upcoming. I feel like the winds of change are blowing, and frankly, they may be blowing very hard.

It will be very interesting to see where I am in one year.

That having been said, if I'm still slapping on that same nametag in a year, I want someone to shoot me.

It's that time again.

Well it looks like Blogger has gone through some changes recently.

I'm writing again. I appear to be "en fuego." I'm currently writing two separate scripts simultaneously, which I've never done before. Also, they're completely different genres, one a comedy one a action/drama thing. I think that helps.

Anyway, back at it.

The BCS doesn't care about Maize and Blue people

Today I am a huge Ohio State fan.

Don't get me wrong, I'm still a Michigan fan more, but I want OSU to cream Florida for the National Championship. Then Michigan to cream USC in the Rose Bowl. Then maybe all those voters who jumped a team that was #9 four weeks before their last game over a team whos only loss was to the #1 team away and by three, will look at what they did. Also maybe we can get over this whole "The SEC is the hardest conference" crap when the Big Ten champ decimates the SEC champ, and maybe they won't get automatic bids they don't deserve.

I digress.

There's going to be a christmas party at my house on Dec. 17. It's a sunday. I figure we can do it like we do Friends Thanksgiving. Everybody bring something, yada yada. If someone can let Joe D. and Heather know, that would be great, I don't have their number. I think we might do some secret santa thing or something. Details are still up in the air, but won't be for long. Come one, come all.

Go Blue.

Go Bucks.
