Dark corridors and a creepy suspicion of dangers around the next corner. Tightly focused camera shots of the last survivors of a gruesome attack, at their wit’s end, knowing that one wrong decision will find them meeting the same fate. These are the concepts I’ve long associated with the long running Alien franchise and is what I was revisited with last night while watching the movie.
Continuing down the path of playing catch up with my 2017 Reading Challenge, I switched up my earlier choice for my second book to finish in April from TheCleansweep Conspiracy by Chuck Waldron (which is a self published book) to The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom by Don Miguel Ruiz (which is an award-winning book). It was a book that I had meant to read for the longest but never did; and for the sake of expediency on getting to my two reading choices for May so that I don’t fall further behind, I started reading it last week.
We’ve reached month two of this initiative where I’ve started to finally put my metaphorical money where my mouth is. It was a great exercise in seeing just how all over the place I was with my ideas before finally sitting down and listing out my ideas.
People usually say that in hindsight, time went by so fast. THAT’S THE TRUTH! I can’t believe we’re already into the month of May. Half of 2017 is almost gone and with that, the realization of how much work is left to do if I want to stay on track for finishing at least the initial draft of my book this year. Between that, the Reading Challenge, and just general ‘adulting,’ I have my work cut out for me.
