Backlog Quest II: Day 0 – The Backlog Strikes Back

Backlog Quest II

Dear Journal,

I thought I had made progress, I thought the light at the end of the tunnel was starting to shine through, I thought the backlog was finally starting to wane. My last adventure into my backlog proved successful, and I felt confident that perhaps my foe would remain weakened and no longer prove a challenge that necessitated action.

I was wrong.

Very wrong.

12-31-12_backlog_quest_2_day_0_stash_2

Very wrong indeed…

Not only has my backlog returned, it has actually gathered strength. The Backlog has struck back with vengeance (plus it takes up a lot of space). Perhaps like a rising tide little can be done to fight the forces at work here but for the sake of my shelves and my personal finances I must try. Again.

Just as before this journal will serve as a record of this quest to cleanse myself of my backlog. Hopefully it will be a record of my victory. Perhaps it will serve as a record of my madness as well.

Either way, the Backlog Quest begins once more.
