Five Weeks Till 2013
In the aftermath of Thanksgiving, I was sitting around with some friends discussing the fact that the holiday shopping season was now well and truly upon us, noting how quickly Christmas decorations were going up on all the shops, buildings, and homes.
“Of course, they’re going up quickly,” one of my friends laughed. “They have to take them all down again in 5 weeks!”
Just five weeks from today, it will be New Year’s Day . . . it will be 2013.
Considering that, mere moments before in the conversation I was kvetching a little bit about how quickly the remaining three weeks of my Kickstarter for The Littlest Shoggoth were going to go—how I wasn’t sure how I was going to fit all I had to do into that time—I was floored by the realization that I have even less time than that after it closes to wrap up everything I want to do this YEAR!
I’ve still got a couple of freelance projects to complete. I need to get serious about sending out resumes and doing job hunting. I want to do a few small craft projects while they’re fresh in my mind. And, of course, I’ve got to do ALL of my own holiday shopping, wrapping, and mailing.
It seems impossible. But that’s how it is.
What do YOU plan to do in the next five weeks? Don’t spend too much time answering the question, or you’ll only have four weeks left!
