Result #34: I've successfully become a watch person again!!!

#34 Get back in the habit of wearing a watch.

Date: 2-3-2014

Due Date: 2-3-2015

Resolution: I just want to get back into the habit of wearing a watch.

I don’t have a cool story as to why I want to achieve this goal, well other than there being a time before cell phones that I never left the house without a watch and I kind of liked the look. For this reason I’m going to bring it back.

How you can help: Here’s what’ll make this challenge fun. If you catch me out in public without a watch on my wrist I will give you all the change in my pocket. I will also let you draw a watch on my wrist to show the world that I’ve already been caught and have no change to give away.

Added Bonus: Not only will I give you all my change I will give you this coin pouch that I will be storing said change in.

Good luck catching me in public with or without a watch.

Update #1: The Conclusion.

Date: 2-9-2015

Since setting this resolution last year I managed to forget my watch only three times. Each time I forgot was because I worked the morning shift and was running a later than usual and rushed out the door without my time piece. The second I realized I was watchless led me to be bothered for the rest of the day.

My goal was to become a watch person so I feel that deep seeded feeling of annoyance that stemmed from staring at my naked wrist is a sign of success.

Not only do I now wear a watch on a consistent basis, but I've also started to collect them. They may not be high end watches but it's a collection nonetheless.

That said I now once again consider myself a watch person, leading this resolution to be a success!!!

I started out with a goal of becoming a paid screenwriter. I had no interest in any other aspect of filmmaking. I received and scholarship to The Vancouver Film School's Writing for Film and Television program where I graduated in 2005. I fell in love with being on set during my first non-school produced short, . I loved being around all the creative people, seeing people having fun while working. The whole liking your job was a new world to me, so I decided to give it a shot. I volunteered for any project I could, doing what ever was needed. The set was my Film School this time. While working as a PA on a feature I was informed that the DP wanted the three tallest PAs to help out in the grip and electric department. That is when I found the department that felt like the best fit for me while I continued to write.
