It’s an odd thing, really. By which I mean time and our visions of the future. We’ve arrived at the year 2019, which past us predicted would be in varying degrees of dystopian decay, with technology that we haven’t quite realized.
We may be well on our way to dystopian entropy, given our current political, social and economical situation, but our cars don’t fly yet, at least not at the common man level (I’ve seen the prototype, but it’s a far cry from being affordable or even legal)…which I suppose is good, considering the terror it could cause.
I’ve been feeling pretty ho-hum about things since Christmas. My idea of New Year’s eve, was a Star Trek:Voyager marathon that ended around eleven. I’ve never been a big resolution maker, because I realized young that most of us just make some big proclamation about big changes that we’re are never actually going to follow through on without any plan for how to accomplish them.
That said, however, I am resolving to work on two specific goals this year, and I already have plans in place for how to accomplish them. I probably won’t really be discussing them, but they are health and finances.
Today is my first day back in the office, like many other Americans, I assume. I like first days, they feel like a fresh start. My goal for the next three days is to finish up a few unfinished projects from last year so that next week I can begin new things. I also hope to get at least three hundred words written every day, whether on the current project or something else. My daily writing has been slacking lately.
I guess I should get myself busy with that. I have a mile long list of emails to respond to this morning, so I’m off to the day job.
Happy New Year, Readers! Welcome to the future!
