Oh, friends.

You know that bright and shiny feeling you get when the year is young and you have gone to the gym twice in a row or finally remembered to brush your teeth consistently for both the morning and night?

I’m so glad you know that feeling because this post won’t really cater to that.

Hold onto that feeling tight and close to your heart.


We ended Week 2 somewhere at the beginning of Set 3 Book 5. I’m not actually sure where we ended up because if you recall, it was Christmas week and the week before. So, I felt super guilty and vowed to do better in January and finish Set 3 Book 5 by the end of Week 4.


Oh, you know we didn’t. Stop being coy.

Actually, we did a fat load of nothing.

Well, I suppose that’s not technically true since we’re still alive so we did stuff – but not in terms of Sagebooks.

I mean, I suppose I could lie and stage photos and videos but what’s the point in doing so? It’s not true and I hate lying and honestly, it’s bound to happen when you go through any curriculum – Sagebooks or otherwise – so it’s better to just admit to your temporary lapse and continue on as before.

See? You thought this post was going to be about failure but really, it’s about tenacity and the unflappable human spirit.


Welp, Newton’s First Law of Motion/Inertia happened.

That doesn’t help? Fine. Don’t ever say I don’t provide a wide breadth of information on this blog.

Newton’s First Law of Motion/Inertia: An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.

In layman’s terms, since we did almost nothing the weeks before, the laws of Physics declared that we would continue to do nothing these two weeks.

I don’t make the rules, folks – let alone the laws of the UNIVERSE.


Now, I can hear your objections.

If Newton’s First Law of Motion already has pre-determined me to another two weeks of rest (oh, rest sounds so much better than laziness), what then can a person subject to the laws of physics do?

Ahhh… but you forget the “unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.”

That means that it takes something above and beyond what we were doing (a force surpassing my nominal will power) to get us moving.

Will a force act upon us? Will it be The Force and I can finally work in some Star Wars references as if I were a fan?

Tune in in two weeks and find out.
