This completely falls under the heading of “first world problems,” but I’m starting to think I may have bitten off more than I can chew this year.
I’m hoping to (a) re-read all of Stephen King’s books (62 to go), (b) keep up with all my TV shows and add a few more, (c) work on the AFI/Oscar/Independent Spirit Awards project* and, oh, yeah, keep up with review books and the book new releases I want to read that I didn’t get for review.
My reviews are scheduled a little in advance, but not THAT far in advance. Which means there’s a chance that sometime soon (as early as Sunday, but hopefully later than that), there will come a morning when there is no new KellyVision post.
And I get that this is pressure I’ve put on myself. But I’m trying to just do my best and when there isn’t a new entry, that will be okay.
Ultimately, I’m trying to remember that this is my hobby. I take it seriously, but ultimately, if I miss a day, the world won’t end. If I don’t read over 300 books this year, the world won’t end.
So here’s where I am now: after Blockade Billy, I’m going to focus on my review books for a bit. And I’m going to give myself permission to not have a post up every day.
* = this year, I wanted to watch all the best picture nominees (which will be announced tomorrow), watch all 10 of the AFI’s best of 2012 list (7 done), watch half of the movies on the AFI best of lists from 2001 until 2009, watch half of the AFI’s best musicals list (I’ve seen six of 13 needed to do half), watch half of the movies on the AFI’s 10 best of 10 genres list, watch half of the Independent Spirit Award winners (I’ve seen seven of the 14 needed to do that), and watch the rest of the AFI best of TV picks from 2001 until 2010. So that’s not a small amount of movies and TV, although there is some overlap.
