New plan: no plan. I’ll post when I
have make time.
t’s been over a year since I started this silly thing. Originally, I had I intended to force myself to write. Everyday there was going to be a new post. I had intended to get my brain working. Everyday there I would analyze what I did and not like about a movie. Seems simple enough. By the end of a year I’d have 365 posts and that’s nothing to scoff at. It’s been almost a year since I last posted. Over the past year I’ve coached sports (and I don’t like sports); worked as a cashier (and I love numismatics); worked as a non-maintenance un-security guard (my current job sucks); started working a second job; battled the ever-menacing tidal wave that is depression; made friends; challenged enemies; took up scavenging; got a new car; took an extreme chance; packed my things in order to move out of state… and then didn’t; and finally failed with my original goal for this blog. Moral of the story: make goals you can actually keep and not ones you think you can. Writing these little reviews ended up taking considerably more work than I expected. Movies are usually about two hours long (unless it’s a Leone or Tarantino flick), writing reviews are an easy half hour, and collecting images to post can take up to another half hour. So three hours per post is a fair assessment and that number increases depending on the length of a film. TV series take me all month. It’s simply something I cannot do on a daily basis while working 35 hours a week, scavenging to earn extra income, and still trying to keep this dilapidated roof over my head. So new plan: One post a week–screw all that daily posting. Additionally I’m gunning for extra posts on holidays (at least a week around Halloween and Christmas) and whenever else I have enough free time Keep your fingers crossed that I can keep up.
