Re-evaluating my time - from a work aholic POV - writtin March 2014

So after slightly  more than 4 years in college and being a workaholic - I have been re-evaluating my time and how I spend it.  Lately I spend time with my family in the evening and don't work at night.  I spend the weekend with my family and don't work on the weekend. The result - not enough work is getting done. But I have visited several of my friends lately and spent a lot of time with my family. I've gardened and fiddled with stuff. I have been ill alot lately which really helps prioritize work to the bottom.

I am still working on making my film Surviving Death into a series. I've entered my idea into this filmnashville event called film-com.com and I feel really good about it. I've been on a few interviews lately. oh yeah I didn't mention that I quit the job I got. Well Hmm I haven't written much lately, I may not have mentioned that I got a job as a Production Manager of a spanish language Television show. But then I quit because they sort of faked me out. They gave me the impression that they were really ready to do things professionally but when it came down to it they wanted to only pay for 1/3 of my time and there was no budget for anything. I felt like I was expected to pressure my crew into working for free and it just didn't feel ethical. So anyway I am getting signs to work on consciousness continues.

So lately as I am nearing the end of my grace period for my student loans I know I have to start bringing in some money.  And with spring break here this week I just haven't been able to get much done with my film.

but I know that next week I will recommit to my project and I will get busy  and edit my project.
