Final Friday Freakout For 2014

FridayIt’s the Final Friday of 2014, Modern Philosophers.

Think about that for a second.  Yesterday was Christmas, Wednesday is New Year’s Eve, and in less than a week, it will be 2015.

Yes, it is okay to freakout about that.  Another year is about to end, and there are so many things you failed to accomplish in 2014.

Don’t worry, though, this is a safe space for your Final Friday Freakout.  Let’s use my blog to let it all out, lose our #$%^, and then pull ourselves back together again before anyone else can see us.  How does that sound?

As the host of the blog, I will go first…

I cannot believe it is the Final Friday of 2014, and I didn’t make any real progress in my screenwriting career.  I’m getting any younger here.  Sure, I did just finish a new script, but I haven’t sent it to anyone to read.

screamAnd what the hell is going on with .33 Reverse Gunther?  Matthias keeps promising me that there’s going to be big news soon, but I still haven’t heard anything.  It’s freaking me out!  I need for that movie to go into production in order to open other doors to help me get more of my scripts out there.  What’s the hold up???

I’m still single?  Really?  Didn’t I vow that I was going to do something about that this year?  Now the year is ending, and I spent Christmas alone yet again.  Why is this so difficult for me?  How come this blogging wit and charm doesn’t transfer to the real world?  Why is every woman I’m attracted to already taken?

Look at how out of shape I am.  Didn’t I spent most of the Spring and Summer running and watching my diet?  So how the hell did I allow myself to look like this on the Final Friday of 2014?  Why do I sabotage myself?  Why do I work so hard only to just get lazy and let all the hard work go for naught?

Basically, I’m freaking out because I can’t seem to focus and follow through on the goals I set for myself.  The spirit is willing, but the body and mind are weak and flabby.

baby new yearSo here we go again.  A new year is about to begin.  Baby New Year is kicking up a storm and ready to make an appearance.

I’m making a resolution right now, Modern Philosophers, that I will not be freaking out about these same things on the Final Friday of 2015.

What about you, Modern Philosophers?  What’s on your Final Friday Freakout list?  Why don’t you get it off your chest here so you can start 2015 with a less burdened soul?

    My list would probably use up all the space in the comment section :-/

    Good idea for the end of the year though!

  2. Final Friday is continuing to freak me out without mercy–due to a family health emergency. All I have to say, is enough already; 2014, I won’t be sorry when you’re gone.

    My big argghhhhhhhhhhhhh (as Mark so elegantly put it) is this: I have 3 novels I am and have been working on and none of them are done or edited to be sent off to anywhere! I promised myself I would work on them and I haven’t touched any of them. I need to get with the program!!

    Ah, thanks Austin. I feel better all ready.

    I learned long ago to not put stress upon myself by making promises I will not keep. I try to let life take its course. That sounds deep, but it’s really not. I’m just
