Holey Ship High In Transit!!!

Okay, I know I said I was going to do a random news post last Saturday, but the personal thing that happened last week kicked into high gear literally the day after my last post.

Some major BS happened that basically took all of my focus and my complete attention away from everything.

And when I say everything, I mean EVERYTHING!

I spent many nights not in my bed and staying up until 2 in the morning (which normally wouldn’t be a big deal) then waking up at 7 in the morning.

Now I hear you regular 9-5ers snorting in amusement, but let me add this caveat: From 7am-2am I was in a constant state of emotional distress of varying levels.

I should re-emphasize that this distress was not due to something immediately affecting me, but came from trying to comfort and help my friend through a very difficult and surprisingly teetering time.

I am not in ANY way upset about doing this. I care very deeply for my friends and will do everything in my power to help them. But this was something I had very little knowledge on how to solve or help. What I did know was that my friend needed me and that was more important than all of the other things I wanted to focus on this past week.

I don’t think I’ve ever felt so…jet-lagged without the actual jet part. I lost track of time. It feels like it’s been a month since this all started.

Out of respect to my friend’s privacy I will absolutely NOT discuss it on here. My only regret is that I have rehearsals starting next week and the week after that I will be on a cruise ship. I won’t be able to do anything beside texting my support and that bothers me.

I’m going to try to make up for this lack of posts next week with a random news post on Saturday, a post a day detailing the rehearsal process, AND a post a day the following week on the cruise which is also a writer’s conference…as much as I can….not sure how dodgy the internet will be…

Anybut……..here’s a tip for the day/life. Communication is the MOST important thing in any and ALL relationships.

MIA

I apologize for being MIA…. even more so than usual.

A very large thing has happened in my personal life that is taking all of my attention and emotional support to get through.

It’s not something that explicitly happened to ME but a very dear, close friend. And nothing is more import to me than my family and my friends.

I will still post random news on Saturday. But until this thing is calmed down… I will be even more sporadic in posting.

BUT!! I WILL still be posting. And hopefully this thing will be calmed down soon.

Cuz rehearsals for my next show start in less than 2 weeks…..and then I’m on a cruise ship/writer’s conference.

Anybut, I guess this has been a random update.

Self Care

Happy (belated) New Year!

The new year for me started with some anxiety and I realized I needed a break. I needed a moment to really consider what I want out of 2020.

I’m sorry I didn’t post until 7 days into the new year, but I needed to step away from the computer. I needed to self care.

But it gave me a lot of time to think.

So here are some things I decided:

I’m continuing this blog (of course). But don’t expect a post every day. I’ll try, but if I don’t make it…oh well. Although! For sure expect Random News to become a weekly feature. Every Saturday I will post 5 random news stories and my random opinions on them…BUT I will still avoid certain news stories for the sake of MY sanity.

I’m going to, maybe, discuss some other projects I’m working on…things that are available to all you lovely folks. Including my YouTube channels…for those interested.

There are some other things in the works, but it’s still too early to talk about them/put them out into the universe.

So, overall…..

THANK YOU! Thank you all for making 2019 survivable. I can’t wait to see where this blog goes in the future!

 

Not Just Stealing Packages…

This is a warning…

As everyone is aware, every holiday season there are folks who take advantage of those who order a lot from online. Especially around the holidays when those who don’t order a lot suddenly do.

Anybut, thieves love this time of year. Most people still have to work and don’t get home until evening. So packages tend to sit on doorsteps all day. Thieves drive up and down neighborhood streets to find these packages. They run up tot he door, nab the packages and drive off.

Well…that’s not the ONLY crime happening now.

Most people who are expecting packages to be delivered tend to have their guards down when someone knocks on the door. They think, “Oh! That’s probably that package I’ve been waiting for!”

BUT HERE IS A WARNING!! And I’ll tell you based on something that happened to me this past Tuesday:

I was on my computer upstairs. Just messing around. Somebody pounds, not knocks, POUNDS on the front door.

I initially think…do I have a package scheduled to arrive today?

The person pounds again. I go downstairs and, because I was alone, peeked through the peep hole.

I see a guy. No package in hand. He’s wearing a hoodie with the hood up. He’s kind of hanging out as though trying to avoid the sightline of the peephole and kept his face turned away from the door.

IMMEDIATE RED FLAGS!!

I stand there, staring out the peephole, not saying anything and watch him…ready to run upstairs to get my phone if needed.

He shifts his weight a bit and then storms off. I wait a few minutes to make sure he’s gone. Then I go back upstairs and keep my phone close. Some time later I go downstairs and turn on a lot of lights and even the TV to give the impression there’s more than one person in the house.

Today, the Thursday after this happened. A neighbor asked if we saw the criminal (thier words, not mine) walking around the neighborhood. Apparently this person (who I guess was also wearing a mask? I couldn’t see his face so I can’t confirm this) was going to every house and knocking on the door.

This person wasn’t out trying to steal packages. Package thieves DO NOT KNOCK! This person was looking for something else. It could’ve been someone easy to overpower and rob from, it could’ve been someone scoping out houses to see which ones were empty, or it could’ve even been somebody looking to nab someone.

I’ll never know. But I do know that I’ve learned a lot living alone. And when you feel like something is weird or giving you red flags…you listen to that feeling. If you’re wrong, no harm no foul.

So please, please, PLEASE!!! Be careful this holiday season. There are some real bad people wandering around.

December!!

I forgot to make an obnoxious post about how it’s the 1st of December!!!

HOW COULD I?!

WHERE’S MY HOLIDAY SPIRIT?!

Uh, uh, uh…..

31 Days of Holiday Memories!!!!

Every day I’ll write about a random memory from the holidays (specifically around Christmas since that is what my family celebrates).

I’ll do 2 for today and I’ll post them at 2pm and 4pm.

 

 

Power On, WiFi Out

Okay….

There’s apparently been a complication from the work that was done yesterday. I think when they were working on all the power stuff they knocked something loose with the internet.

Cause now we have NO internet.

So, sadly this will be the only post today while we try to figure this out.

Heads Up

The power is going to be turned off in my area from 8:30 am to around 5pm…

I’m writing this post yesterday just in case I don’t get a chance to write more posts to schedule post for tomorrow…if that makes sense.

I may try to post random pics tomorrow instead cause that’s easier for me to do from my phone.

We’ll see.

I DID IT!!

So after posting about how I can never finish the video game Subnautica…..

I DID IT! I FINISHED IT!!

I sucked it up and went deeper. I ventured to the depths of depths and found the cure to the alien disease and made it off the planet.

I guess I just needed to post about how scared of the deep sea in a video game to overcome that fear and finish the game.

Thank all of you. You were apart of this milestone.

………………I’m gonna go start another game so I can keep collecting copper and acid mushrooms. Again…..not what you think.
