Well Well Well

Look at this.

A post after (looks at notes) four-ish months.

What does one post after so long of radio silence entail? An update? A random fact? Another shameless self promotion?

Nah. More of a check in…I guess.

As I currently type these words, I’m watching a live feed of a Remote Operated Vehicle diving off the coast of Vancouver, Canada. (Nautilus if you were curious…actually pretty cool to watch scientists science and tell pretty cheesy jokes) Watching the tiny plankton, jellyfish, and other things I have no idea what they’re called float by the camera is oddly calming. Unless you have Thalassophobia, I guess.

Anybut, I didn’t come on here to talk about that. I came on here cause I’m hoping to start getting back into posting things. How long before I do another long break or how frequent those posts may be…unclear.

However, I have already tried to plan ahead for, at the very least, an active October (since I love the Halloween season and I can ALWAYS find things to talk about during the spooky season).

What ends up happening following that…I have no idea. But it’ll be fun to explore, discover, or just post randomness.

Okay, I kind of lied. Not so much a check-in either.

Update Feb. 20th 2021

In regards to my previous post: The smoke was most likely due to a manure fire many, many miles away from where I live…so that’s good.

I’ve been working on my second book in my fantasy series…and hopefully it will be coming out in March…hopefully.

My theater job is still closed (since March of last year so approaching 1 year anniversary of no theater…yay -_-). I’ve been doing a few odd jobs, but if things keep going this way…well, you all know (especially if you’re in the USA).

My anxiety, depression, and surprise paranoia are all getting along with each other…just not with me, but my kitten is keeping me grounded with nightly and morning cuddles.

That’s all for now…cause I can’t think of anything else interesting enough to mention. Just checking in.

What to Do…?

Wondering what I should post about in the next few weeks…

Should I try doing more random lists? Should I post random true stories? Should I talk about my in progress second book in my fantasy series?

I just don’t know.

I’ll play around with some ideas and hopefully have an answer soon…

Until then, I hope everyone enjoyed my spooky ooky season lists. I had a lot of fun remembering some of the films and trying a new style of post…that other sites have probably been doing forever…but hey! It was still fun.

Anybut, this was sort of an update/random thought post. More for me than anyone else.

Spooky Ooky Season

The season of scares is upon us!

Though it’s going to look very different this year due to ongoing crises including but not limited to the disease that shall not be named, there are still things that can put us all into the Holiday Spirit.

And with the spooky holiday approaching I think it’s time for some lists!

Starting next Monday (because I didn’t have this idea until today and I don’t want to half-ass this) I will do daily lists that relate in SOME way to the Holiday season….Halloween season of course.

So get ready for some fun lists that are 100%, purely my opinion and will probably lead to some debate…….not THAT kind of debate.

See y’all then!!!

Random Updates

It has been [insert number of days] since my last post….yes leaving the brackets is intentional.

SOOOOO….here are some random updates:

1. My work (theater) is gone until next year. Expected, but still a bummer.

2. Hair update (ignore the random redness on my chest…I was in the sun too long and because I’m sooo damn pale…I ACTUALLY got a small sunburn…yes, really):

Before: After:

I was able to go in to get my hair done. Didn’t schedule a next appointment cuz who knows what’s going to happen in 8 weeks (which is my usual time between appointments). Everyone was very on the up and up with masks and social distancing.

3. I have BIG news coming soon…very soon…SO if you don’t follow me on Twitter…you should. Or else you won’t hear my big news. You can follow me @J_A_Ludwig

4. I used my $1200 stimulus check to buy me a new Switch and finally jumped on the Animal Crossing New Horizons bandwagon. My island isn’t ready for visitors yet, but maybe once it is I’ll show some pics.

That’s about it for updates…yes really. Hopefully in the next few days, I’ll be doing some more stuff. We shall see.

Gonna Get Real

I’m an introvert.

I spend a lot of time at home. I don’t like going out, really.

But I do go out to work. To get money so I can continue to have the introvert time…

And while the joke going around is that introverts are in heaven right now…..I’m not.

Due to the nature of my (personal situation) theater work, I have difficulty finding a “real” job to cover the time I’m not working.

There was already rumblings about next season being the make it or break it season for the theater company I work for…leaning heavily on the break it.

There is a high possibility…I won’t have a theater job to come back to…

This is a hard day. Guilt. Anxiety. They’re getting bored with the quarantine and are taking it out on me.

All I can do…is distract myself during the day…for the rest of this pandemic.

But even the distractions are starting to become…less distracting.

Anybut, I just needed to get this off my chest. Sometimes writing it out…purges it from my system. At the very least, this will free me up for a couple more days.

Stay safe everyone. Talk to those you love.

And for the love of all that is still good in this world…be smart and remember we’re all in this together. One way or another.

Hair Tracking

Since we’re not allowed outside…I haven’t had my hair done in a while.

To be fair, I get my hair done every 8 weeks. But I haven’t had it done since the 18th of December. My hair stylist had a baby and I figured…I can wait a few extra weeks.

I bought some Overtone (enough to make it until my next hair appointment) and figured, I’m good.

Then the thing which shall not be named happened and now………I have a little longer to wait. I could order more Overtone…but I thought…why not track the hair growth.

So, here we go. Now keep in mind this has already been growing since December 18th.

This is just for stupid fun. Something to do so I won’t go mad and just shave all the hair off………so HERE WE GO!
