Aaaaaaalrighty! So where are we, Vivi?

  • Weight 9/12 ¬† (5 up!)
  • Production 3/12 ¬† (1 up!)
  • Acting 2/12 ¬† (1 up!)
  • Weddings 1/12 ¬† (1 up!)
  • Reading ?/12 ¬† (what’s uuup!)

As you can see, I have yet to figure out how the whole reading thing ties into it all. “Twelve minutes of reading a day” doesn’t seem to be a good way for me track my reading. I could say I definitely¬†read at least 12 minutes a day…if you count all those BuzzFeed posts and other random internet articles.

I do highly recommend everyone subscribe to The Skimm if you are interested in keeping up with current events. I’m not that great¬†at keeping up with what’s going on in the world, but The Skimm is¬†great! I would consider this my 12 minutes a day, but again, it’s hard to keep track of the timing.

How’s everyone else doing? Let me know in the comments!


BAM! 3 down!



I love staying busy, but I love staying busy with things that get me closer to my goals. This week I worked on my first SAG gig of the year, and finished production on 2 videos for a¬†John Maxwell¬†conference. Oh, and since Jan 5th, I’ve lost 4 pounds!

What’s that mean? I’m doing pretty well with half of my goals…not so well with the others. I haven’t been reading the way I wanted, however, I did finish the Audiobook version of Gone Girl, so does that count? I figured maybe it did…or is that me being lazy about reading? I don’t know!!

The wedding photography circuit is¬†not looking good so far. No additional weddings booked, so i’m 0/12 right now. *(I have a wedding in May, but I’m not including that one on the list since it was booked in fall 2014)

So, to sum it all up

  • Weight 4/12
  • Producing 2/12
  • Acting 1/12
  • Weddings 0/12
  • Reading ?/12

I’m excited about how¬†it’s all starting off! But I’m not gonna lie, I’m a little anxious about what will happen around March or so. It almost feels like beginners luck right now. What if it slows down? I tend to get anxious when things slow down or look bleak, so hopefully it wont! But I know I can’t necessarily control that. Anyway, have a wonderful Monday and remember to #GitErDozen!


PS- The featured photo is a still from one of the shoots this week! Eee!

“Git Er Dozen!”

Well, Folks! It’s the start of a new year. 2015. Can you believe it?!¬†I was just getting used to 2014!

And like every January, of every year, it’s time to start thinking about….


Ugh. That word- resolutions– puts a sour taste in my mouth. Maybe it’s because every year society berates¬†us with notions that¬†we need to lose more weight or get a better job. Or, maybe I’m a little bitter at myself for not always following through with previous year’s resolutions. More likely, it’s a little of both. I’m mad that society tells me to eat healthier and mad at myself for not being capable of doing it for more than 2 months at a time.
