This is not a New Year's resolution.

School's out!  W00t!  Note to self...do not wait until finals week to start your 10+ page philosophy papers.  Those last couple of weeks almost took me back to my days of pulling all-nighters as an undergrad.  Yeah, you can't do that when you have to work 40 hours a week.  This is where I pledge to manage my time more effectively next semester...and then end up failing horribly again.  Speaking of next semester, I'm switching to 2 math classes and 1 philosophy class (after Boeing made some massive changes to their tuition reimbursement program...but that's a topic I'm probably better off not blogging about).

So now that I don't have work, school, or soccer (and haven't for the past 5 days) until work on Monday (I guess Sunday for soccer), it's time to get my life in order.  Here's how bad things are...

I have a puzzle that's been sitting in the same state (only the border is complete) on one of the desks in my home office for the past year. I haven't gotten around to filing the CDs that are sitting around my living room since I moved into my house 2 years and 7 months ago.  Nor have I put up the artwork that I bought right before that time.  In the last year, I've almost bought as many books, intending to read them all, as the number of pages that I've so far read in all of them combined.

I need to get that task list under control.  My excuse has been that every time I've had a significant break from work/school, I've been on a trip somewhere around the world.  I can't say that this winter break, so it's time to do something about it.  The break has been semi-productive so far, but not as much as I would like it to be.  Perhaps I should be a hermit for the next few days and straighten all these things out.  My goal for next year, then, is to have everything in its right place.  Maybe I'll make that my new theme song...
