I'm taking next week off from work and the first thing I realized is that I have a choice. I can sit around all week and then wake up on Friday to the realization I've accomplished absolutely nothing. Or, I can start planning now to make this a productive working vacation. My job allows me 190 hours of paid time off in a given, 12-month period, btw. If that sounds like a lot, it's not really. When you factor in paid holidays, sick days, the unexpected and mandatory time off it adds up about right.
And there is a lot I plan on accomplishing. I've decided to go back to school to get my masters degree and that takes planning. I've got three articles I'm working on for the LGBT Weekly and that takes research and planning. I'm trying to compile all my interviews from this blog into a book and that takes planning. Plus, I have a couple of movies lying around that I haven't seen yet since I gave my old DVD player to a friend (who still hasn't bought a TV!). I thought I'd be getting a Blu-Ray DVD player by now but it hasn't quite worked out that way. So I'm going to watch a couple of flicks on my laptop including Francis Ford Coppola's 165-hour remastered, remixed, scenes-never-before-included version of "Apocalypse Now."
I also have two friends with birthdays, one in Bonsall, the other other in LA and I'm going to spend a day with another friend in Chula Vista who's going to help recover the data from my old tower while bloviating on how fucked up democracy is in the United States. (It's a small price to pay, actually.)
Of course, as if, I have a boyfriend I'd like to get to know better, so there's that.
Not to mention all the porn I'll be posting. Like this Nigerian fucker after the jump...
