A Few Steps Forward, A Few More Back

What was that about having goals and sticking to them?  Actually, I did achieve one of my previously set goals: I finished Child of God.  And I must say, Cormac McCarthy, sometimes you creep me out.

But I did it.  I bought the book, read the book, enjoyed the book (in a very particular uncomfortable kind of way), and have moved on to achieve new things.  So maybe I haven't picked up any of the other books I said I would finish, and instead of playing Final Fantasy IV like I wanted, I went out and bought Final Fantasy XIII, but what can you do.

I have achieved a different.  A new goal.  I bought and read Suzanne Collins The Hunger Games.  The up side to this is that I've read another book and it was great, the down side is that it is the first book in a trilogy, so now I need to have the attention span that will hold out for two more books...

FFXIII is another thing entirely.  This game is said to be long, like crazy long.  And I have a bad habit of getting many hours into a game then becoming distracted by the next thing that comes along.  As time goes by and I return to the game, I find that I have forgotten what it was I was supposed to be doing.  The I start over.  This is why I have never finished FFIV.  So will FFXIII fall victim to my inattention, or will it prevail and become one of the few games I finish?

meh, we'll see.
