Date: March 6th, 2009
If I could, I would hug March. It is the month everything begins to change. I’m tired of winter and March gives me the first glimpse it’s almost over. Why isn’t March the beginning of the New Year? It is the month of rebirth and renewal. Spring starts in March, on the 20th. Daylight Savings starts in March. I’ll finally see the sun after work. St Patrick’s Day is in March. What is there not to like about March? As a bonus, this year there are tons of entertainment enticements in March as well. The Watchmen movie starts this weekend. Castle starts next Monday. Yeah, it’s another in a long line of mystery procedurals with bickering co-stars that actually don’t hate each other but it looks charming in that obnoxious sort of way. Next weekend is the release of Return to Witch Mountain. (What? It looks fun! Shut up.) And the week after that Knowing with Nicolas Cage opens. All I know about that movie is there is a secret code, things explode, and the end of the world has to be averted. Awesome, right? Tickets to see Joss Whedon accept the Humanist Award from Harvard went on sale in March. (I already have mine.) And I have no doctor appointments for me or my cat on the schedule. My tax refund should be coming in March and my unused vacation pay from last year is about to land on my desk. March rocks. March rolls. March FTW.
Plus, it isn’t February. February was rotten. I was sick and I missed a lot of days at work during a really busy time and that just kept causing problems for the rest of the month. Its cold, dark, and I am glad it’s gone. Valentine’s Day isn’t even enough to make February ok with its bountiful boxes of candy and fresh flowers for the giving. Every project I had in my planner had to be thrown out the window and I was so in the midst of the winter blahs I didn’t much care.
But March is motivating. It’s the name. March is a month, but it’s also a command. Get moving. Go, go, go! And I have a lot of going to do to make up for the time I lost in February. I’m a month behind in my Designed for Success project. But I have a plan. I’m going to double up this month. So, be on the look out for both Chapters 2 and 3 in the weeks to come. (When I’m not busy at the movies or outside enjoying non-freezing temperatures.)
What does March mean for you?
