I’ve been watching a lot of Netflix since the holidays. Right now I’m on Season 6 of 24 with Kiefer Sutherland. I had originally watched the first three or four seasons of this series when it aired on tv. I fall out of shows for a lot of reasons … I lose interest … the network changes their time slot and I just lose track of where they are … I get busy and don’t have the time to watch any more … I go through a period of not having access to any television … but with 24 I just stopped watching because it was too edge of my seat intense and I didn’t need that kind of added stress in my life.

I also want to read more, just for the hell of it. In my job I write and read pretty much all day, every day, but it feels like an eternity since I’ve read or written anything just for me, just because I felt like it, just because it felt good. So I’m a little bit rusty. It might take a few posts to hit a stride. But I’m determined. This will be the year of getting back to myself and the things that matter most to me … or I will die trying!
