Taking a Break

This entry will be short. I’ve been playing Batman Arkham Asylum in Steam today, and I drank a full bottle of Pinot Noir without breaking a sweat. I just recently bought four cans of Cold Smoke, which is this really strong beer that I haven’t had since last summer. I bought some Hot Cheetos because I wanted something to snack on while I played and drank. I didn’t work out. I didn’t write my second set of 300 words for my novel. I didn’t do anything on my task list; hell, I deferred everything until Monday. This weekend is going to be simple and fun, and I’m going to be drinking for most of it.

I’ve come to the realization that I’m starting over in many areas of my life. It’s like I’m moving back to Montana all over again. I have this clean slate to work with now. Regardless of what has happened this past week and what will happen this weekend, I’m at my best right now. I’m in the best shape of my life. I’m writing my best stuff right now. I’m the most disciplined I’ve ever been in my life. I needed to let loose. I simply needed it. So I’m not going to write 500 words. I’m going to finish up this entry and get back to drinking, eating, and playing Batman. Because I feel like Batman right now.
