Some things 

I’m working on a substantive post (possibly with contributions from another blogger, too!), but it’s not ready yet. Yet I don’t want to break my posting streak, so here’s a quick list of some things that should tide us all over until I can get the other one written. 

  1. I’m very glad to have the first quarter behind me. After weeks of 12+ hour days and everything being an emergency (sales guys seem to think any moment that their deal isn’t my sole purpose in life is a moment of deep crisis), I was very glad to close the books on Q1 on Friday. It was supposed to be on Thursday, but of course there always has to be at least one that drags on and on. I’m hoping to have a quiet week to catch up on everything that got pushed aside in the last few weeks, but I don’t count it as likely. 
  2. Went to see Ready Player One over the weekend. I had really enjoyed the book and was hopeful that the movie wouldn’t ruin it. Glad to say that I enjoyed the movie just as much. While the movie changes a lot from the book, my personal opinion is that the story’s core is in tact and the action was fun. Definitely recommend!
  3. I started a bullet journal. It’s a new endeavor for me and I’m not entirely sure I’m doing it “right”. However, I have it set up and a week’s worth of jottings down. Time will tell if I can keep it and the blog going at the same time and whether the radically different writing style will contribute or detract from my skill and productivity as a writer. (Clearly, it hasn’t done anything so far to deter from rambling run-on sentences. 😉)
  4. Although it’s much colder today than I’d hoped, there are definite signs of spring all over the place and I couldn’t be happier. I’m so ready for new growth and a little warmth. My SIL’s tulips are beginning to emerge, my grass is beginning to green, and the songbirds are back in my trees. I love this time of year. Actually, I love the turn of all seasons. Change keeps us on our toes and reminds us that life is always moving ahead. Springtime in particular brings this message, with the renewal of leaves and grass, rebirth of flowers and wild things. I find it hard not to be hopeful in the spring. 

Happy Spring to all of you. I hope you find good things in your every day to make you feel positive and hopeful.
