What to do..what did I do?

Another year has come and gone, and I'm not quite sure what I did to spend the time. I know I was busy all year, but I feel as if I have nothing to show for it. I guess that means I'm an unsatisfied creature by nature. But at the same time I feel as if there is some validity to my feeling, as if I've done noting of worth all year. If you were take a picture of my situation now, and compare it to that of the beginning of last year, I'm afraid there would not be that much of a difference.

  • I'm not working regularly.
  • The books I wrote aren't selling.
  • I'm still in junior college.
  • I live with my family.
  • I love my dog.
  • I love my family (yes, in that order).

This leaves me wondering whether or not I made any good choices last year. However, when I decided to look deeper, it's starts to look a little better.

Last year I:

  • Made the choice to pursue acting and modeling. I made connections and money in acting, and I met a lot of people that I now consider to be friends. I had no such luck with modeling.
  • Worked a seasonal job at a clothing store. I made some money and one friend doing that.
  • I finished my second year of studying French at my junior college and have since then made it my goal to travel to France this summer. 
  • I took and aced the last math class I will ever have to take in my life. 
  • I published another book. 
  • I doubled to tripled the work experience I had on both my acting and my regular resume in one year.
I suppose with these two lists in mind, I have to decided which one is the most important and that will help me focus my energy for the upcoming year, and maybe that first list will start to get a little shorter than last year.
