It's time for a new obsession

I have what some would call an obsessive personality. This has been both a blessing and a curse in my life. It has helped me get good grades in school, excel in sports, finish books in record time and learn song lyrics but as of late this "obsessive" part of my personality has made my life less than ideal. You see, once I start thinking about something I have a very difficult time turning it off. The majority, not all, of my obsessions fall into four categories, School, Work/Money, My Weight, and Boys. You would think that since I'm not in school I would have less to obsess about but somehow all the obsessive energy that went into school has somehow found it's way into the other 3 categories.
Now, I don't want to brag or anything, but I know myself pretty well. I know that once something/someone becomes an obsession.....ok, I just realized that saying that someone becoming an obsession sounds a little creepy but it's what happens and I seriously can't help yeah, something becomes an obsession and I'm a goner. Knowing this fun fact about myself, I will try and steer clear of those things that I know could turn into an obsession. I have, however, found the best way to cure an obsession.....find a new one!
A couple of nights ago I came to the conclusion that if I didn't find something else to obsess on in my life I was going to have a very miserable winter and so I've been trying to decide what I wanted to focus (fancy word for obsess) on and this is what I've come up with....I am going to start training for a Sprint Triathlon! Details and updates to come!
