I gave into popular culture and started watching Game of Thrones.
I tried a few time over the last year and never made it past episode 1 on the first time and second try. Then finally on the third try I made it past episode 3 and knew I would watch until then end. I only made the third attempt because my co-worker/friend told me, who happens to read A LOT, it is truly just a great story – well told – minus the blood, gore, nudity (full frontal female nudity only, shall I say) and a lot death, which I abhor.
One month later I’m binge watching Game of Thrones, which is ill-advised but I really don’t listen to anyone. I’m on Season 4.
GoT came at a good time – I’m training for the ultra race, the ultimate race, a race I’m not sure I can finish but mentally I need to think I can. So, recovery this race season is Game of Thrones.
The character I love: Daenerys Targaryen. Why? She knows what she wants. She turns a bad situation into the best situation. She has great mental energy.
I say that not knowing what happens in the final season that is on HBO right now – which I don’t have.
Right now, okay maybe tomorrow (it’s been a long weekend of not meeting goals) I’m going to feed my desire to achieve by taking in everything this character embodies.
Okay, maybe the last quote was more political than personal but the personal is political – so there.
Week 17 recap tomorrow.
