Can you do old year's resolutions?

I was sitting in the Green Room at the Rep over the weekend and realized ... I have been pushing, pushing, pushing myself for over a year now. I have not given myself a break. First it was the Japanese class (twice a week and a TON of homework), then it was voice lessons, then it was the show (when I burned the candle at both ends and then broke it in two and started burning from the middle, too).

So I have made a resolution. I am going to Take a F**king Break until November. I will audition for no shows, I will buy no season tickets to anything, I will take no classes.

I will chill out more. I will spend time with friends. I will spend more time with shadowdaddy (not that we weren't already going to all the shows and playing games and seeing movies together anyway, but still, the show was a pain, and the last year had been too busy for us). I will also probably still work myself to the bone at my job, but that can't be helped.

I will also let myself write. Look at my resolutions for this year: the one I have not done was to submit an application to be a freelancer for The Stranger. Will you all (especially my writer friends) harp on me about this at least once a week until I get it done?

Re: Freedom, sweet freedom
Even more availability the week of the 15th - pretty much everything is okay after 7 PM. And I am free on Sunday the 21st.

The 21st sounds good (dang, that's a long time from now, though!)

Too, too long!
You're right, it is. I'm also free the night of Saturday the 13th - I'm thinking I'm too tired to do the pirate party quite yet. Interested? Friday may also be free, depending ....

Re: Too, too long!
I had been planning on going to the Pirate Party (kind of)... why don't we plan on the 21st? (and if you feel like partying pirate style, perhaps I'll see you there)

Re: Too, too long!
Uh, well, I wasn't planning on having the pirate party as only two people had expressed much enthusiasm, so that left me open for other things. But I will plan on the 21st!

I kept hearing Simon and Garfunkel in my head when I was watching this depressing movie about factory life on Sunday.

Sounds like an excellent plan.

A Haiku For You...
You need a day off,
Maybe a week, for sleeping
And doing nothing!

Good call on the resolution, are we allowed to slap you when you find the next exciting thing to go charging full throttle into? *grin*

Re: A Haiku For You...
Hee hee! The joke around here is just what exactly qualifies as doing nothing if I'm still going out six nights a week?
