Back to Blogging

I haven't blogged here since 2012. Why am I making a stab at it again?

I realized two things about social media I wanted to get away from. First was that I was often using it as a journal, which is boring and maybe TMI for those platforms. Secondly I was using it too much for my taste, so that I felt like a tool for marketers rather than using social media as a tool for my ends.

Nothing To Do!

I got my coding finished sooner than I thought. That means I won't have to work tomorrow in order to take a guilt free vacation. No homework. No work. No rehearsals. Total vacation. It's been over a year. My break last Winter was taken up with homework assignments for the second term of ETI. Now, I'll probably bring along the script for the show which I auditioned for last Friday. I don't know if I'll do much with it, as I won't hear back about casting for that until I get back.

I'm thinking of seeing Lost In Yonkers while up north, so I may read the script. I've at least two copies if I can find them. For the most part I'm going to be totally lazy, and daring with my diet. Like trying fish and some other things. There is something which is not agreeing with me, so I'll start over when I get back. It is a slight disagreement, and I'd rather have small list of things to eat next week, instead of just two things. I've lost over twenty pounds, so there is that added incentive to try again. There are some food sensitivities that cause weight gain. I suspect it is akin to skipping breakfast. Your body feels it is short of real sustenance and goes into starvation mode, making you retain weight.

Assuming the weight loss continues, when will I need a new headshot. The first place weight changes show up is in my face. My face looks thinner than the rest of me. Actually, thinner is an adjective that is nonsensical when speaking of my overall physique, but maybe that will change. We'll see in another month.

I'm about to leave the office, and not come back for over a week. Well that's not entirely true. I've a piece of furniture, a small rolling cabinet with a thick butcher block top which I hope will replace my kitchen table. I'll be selling/giving away a nice oak dining set once I get that in place. So, I'll be in tomorrow morning with the truck I forgot to drive in today, so my officemate doesn't have to stare at it while I'm on vacation for a week.

Now it's into the motorcycle boots, and off to the chiropractor. If'n I don't write next week I'll be thinking of all of you.

Have a fantastic holiday!

I didn't write about it, but that's rough giving up potatoes. Not only do I love them as well, but they are in so many other things.
