I can't say with any measure of certainty that I'm a "type A" personality. While I'm goal oriented, and believe that in order to truely give yourself over to your passions you need to be obsessive about them on some level, I can say that I am the type of person who desperately needs something to look forward to. It's rare that I don't have some "count down" going on. Sometimes it's short term (such as "6 more hours of work left!"). Sometimes it's long term (like, "2 1/2 more months until I turn 30!"). Sometimes there isn't a time frame attached at all (such as,"Someday I'll come home to more than just my dog." ).
So let's update you on the lastest count downs.
2 more days until I get to The Lion King the musical!
33 more days until my first week long vacation in FOUR YEARS! Disneyworld here I come!
1 more day until weigh in. (Blah! 1 more stinking pound! Is that too much to ask?!)
3 more days until Halloween! Okay, so it's not my favorite holiday, but it's usually still fun.
