New year, new job

Happy New Year’s, everyone!  I’m starting a new job today, actually.  I’m not sure what to expect — the new boss was very cordial in person, but she sounds a little crazy over e-mail.  Still, most of my dealings with her should be in person from now on, so that has the potential to work out.

I’m also a little concerned about splitting my time between this new job, writing, and training for a marathon, eek!  I signed up for one in the first week of May.  This time I put the money down up front, because I’ve been pretty far through training before (my longest run in the past was 17 miles — getting up there!) but never gone through with it.  Now that I have an actual registration confirmation, I’m hoping this is the year I actually do it!

So as I was saying, it seems like it’ll be difficult to find time to write this year.  But that’s one of only two New Year’s resolutions I’ve come up with — write!  It’s funny, I’ve said I wanted to be a writer ever since I was a kid, but it’s so much easier to find time for a hundred other things besides writing.  There’s other stuff that seems more “necessary” — laundry, exercise, checking e-mail … But this year I want to make writing just as much of a priority as those other things.  Wish me luck!
