364 Days UP - "You're all I knew you'd become..."
Now 2009/My 'Nerdy 30' was a year I sort of allowed myself to relax and enjoy the year without worrying too much about specific, organized goals. And it was certainly a fun year. But I'm going to try to get back to attempting some long term projects. First on the list? Writing my first short story. And don't get your hopes up, because unless I'm dead and you're ransacking my hard drive, or I become some sort of literary sensation and it gets included on a heavily asterisk's* "Early Works" collection, you'll probably never read it.
A friend recently proposed an interesting arrangement with me to make sure we're each productive - using our level of productivity as a way to nudge the other into not being lazy. I write a page, I text him and let him know he owes me (or really, himself) a page. We both really WANT to be productive, and we're both pretty good about pestering one another, so the plan should work, in theory. The only fatal flaw - which has already reared its ugly head - someone has to be productive first.

Currently Playing: Knee deep in Assassin's Creed 2, and loving it. Just finished up and am currently making the final rounds of 100% puzzle completion in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box (Spoiler Alert: It actually wasn't all that diabolical) and believe it or not, I'm still playing Resident Evil 5 on a pretty regular basis, both the campaign and the stupidly addicting Mercenaries mode.
*Note that at the time of this writing, Matt Shafeek was without an author, and was not aware of whether or not his usage of "asterisk's" was proper English. Also, he was too lazy to find out.
