Well, 2006 is here. Let’s all be thankful for that. I’m shutting the door on 2005. The damn year started with marital woes, gained momentum with a car fire, shocked me with a divorce, destroyed my transmission, attempted to kill me with a motorcycle wreck, and ended with one last bit of fury by succeeding in killing my grandfather. Hey, if nothing else, it was eventful. But if I have this much drama in 2006 it better be because I joined the cast of The OC.
The new year’s resolutions? Well, they’re not too out of the ordinary.
I pledged to myself to get better abs. I’ve always worked out on a pretty regular basis, I just hate doing abs. By the end of February I plan to have some killer abs.
I’m going to focus more on work. I’ve never really applied myself at anything. I always just kind of fly by the seat of my pants and sloughed through school and work. This year, I’m going to focus and apply myself. I definitely want to dominate the ad industry and win some ADDYs this year.
Outside of work, I’m going to finish my “Suburbanights” screenplay by the end of February. It’s a comedy based on the adventures of Jace and myself. I’ve been kicking around that one and then two others, a western and a sci-fi, but I decided I needed to just sit down and focus on one, get it finished, and then move on. I’ve got 30 minutes a night dedicated to just that. Hopefully it will start shaping up nicely within a week or two.
So good luck to all in 2006. I have to say, so far it’s gone pretty well.
