This Is Me Getting Action

I’d like to get in the practice of writing again. Consider this your notice. And that TR quote in the previous entry, that’s my guide, a drill sergeant of sorts, to help accomplish the goals below in the new year.

“Get action. Do things; be sane; don’t fritter away your time; create, act, take a place wherever you are and be somebody; get action.”

— Theodore Roosevelt

It’s not all bad. Some of it I enjoy, but then there’s the other kind; the kind that keeps a person on his ass in front of a computer screen, away from all these other things.

Be Healthier
Eating, running, lifting — whatever it takes. I joined a flag football team last fall and never felt so rickety. I’m 29.

Annihilate Debt
Okay, too high. Let’s make this one a two to three year goal.
