HELLO FELLOW DREAMERS! How was your week?
Mine was *AWESOME.* Let's have another DREAM CHECK, shall we? I have lots to report. I hope you do too. Dream Check Friday has become the highlight of my week!
LAST WEEKS GOALS:
M.S. Work on I WAS A TEEN AGED BANK ROBBER (IWATBR) 5x's for two hours each day
Paint - even just a little!
Build Go-Go Rach Showroom (go-gorach.com)
Set up BTR Radio Show (FEB 14 2011 LAUCH!)
HOW DID I DO?
M.S. (IWATBR) - I wrote for two hours three out of five days. Although I did not hit my goal, I have to say I'm making progress! A month of DREAM CHECKS, is really pushing me along. I may just finish this book sooner than I thought!
PAINT - even just a little. Well, my Sundays have changed dramatically, so I am gonna have to figure out a time. "A PROMISE" deserves to be finished! I'll get back to you on this one.
Build Go-Go Rach Showroom. I spent hours on this project, guys! The store looks great, but I have decided to try my hand at creating the site on the Word Press platform. My design is solid, you guys are gonna love it! I'll be working on this project in my spare time, over the next few months.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST, I planned to set up my BTR radio show last week. I've secured the station, we have a name (LIVE LIKE YOU MEAN IT WITH GO-GO RACH AND CO-HOST AMY LEE COY), now we just need to create our format. Amy and I have a plan to talk on the phone next week about how we are gonna roll.
GOALS FOR NEXT WEEK:
Those of you who read my blog on a regular basis know I had some great news this week: I landed a *KILLER* job!
This is very exciting because now I will have the money to support my BIG DREAMS, baybeh! I've got some work to do. My goals this week will be based on managing my life, so I can balance all the balls I am juggling. It's been a while since I worked full time, so I expect it may take me a couple weeks to get used to this shift, but I am UP FOR THE CHALLENGE!
First things first: My boss sent a glossary of terms for me to familiarize myself with the industry I am getting into, so I will spend the weekend writing the ones I do not know on index cards to assist with my intended goal: MEMORIZE EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM.
Second: I need to write out my new schedule and PLAN AHEAD. By the end of next week, I expect to have a handle on how things will go. There will be no more posting in the afternoons for me. From now on, I will need to write my posts in advance. This is a good thing.
Third: I want to stay on track with writing. So I will apply my two hours a day goal to next week. Saweet McJesus! I AM WRITING A BOOK!
I'll will publish ERIN, YOU'RE KILLING ME, a critical analysis of Monday's INTERVENTION in Go-Go Rach Style, tomorrow. I am re-thinking my plan to write about this show every week because I have realized it is all the same. I've already reviewed this show, I don't know how much more there is to say about it? Let me know what you think.
My Tuesday post is still up in the air. I know it's time for me to delve into the depth of the past and write another story. I've been putting off writing the post: I'M YOUR COUNSELOR, LEZ BE TOGETHER, because I'm still pissed about that predator, twenty years later. Of course, the story needs to be told, so I will get to it. STAY TUNED.
Oh, one more thing. A bunch of us Stinkin Thinkers are writing letters to head editor of The L.A. Times to let them know that Alcoholics Anonymous is NOT SAFE for anybody. We hope they will stop writing about THE CULT, once they've heard THE TRUTH, based on our personal experiences. There are a TON of us, so I expect something...we will see!
UPDATE: Here is the info for our campaign. If you have been affected by TWELVE STE DOGMA in anyway, please get involved!
On behalf of the California "Stop 13th Step in AA" initiative, I'd like to take the opportunity to invite you all to join us in a letter campaign to challenge the article that ran January second in the LA Times entitled, "Sober traveling: AA roadside assistance for a recovering alcoholic."
If you are interested in joining us in this effort, please familiarize yourself with the article and send your opinion to the LA Times at...
Los Angeles Times
202 W. 1st St.
Los Angeles, CA 90012
Fax: (213) 237-7679
We're hoping to get enough letters into the LA Times mail room at the same time to wake them up and draw attention to our cause. Our target date is Thursday, January 13th, 2011. Depending on where you are, this means that you should probably get them in the mail by Monday or Tuesday.
Collectively we can bring change to the addiction treatment industry.
Please respond if you are interested in joining this letter campaign."
