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.
Just found out today that my theater job won’t be back until next YEAR (2022) at the earliest…and I’m gonna have to be okay with that.
However, that most likely means that by the time it comes back…I may not be able to do it…since I’ll probably be working full time somewhere that won’t let me take the time off to work on a theater show…
And I’m gonna have to be okay with that.
I’ll keep working on my book series (Book 2 is now available for pre-order btw…I’ve been dropping the ball on promotion because losing my job and still being unable to get scheduled for a vaccine and searching for a new job and realizing that I’ve wasted so much time spiraling deeper and deeper into anxiety and depression…make it VERY difficult to get excited for pretty much everything).
I’ve started randomly streaming on Twitch trying to distract myself from the aforementioned spiral…though I can only handle 2 hours and not every day streaming. (If you’re curious, I play Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate, not well, because I’m obsessed with that game since Monster Hunter World is done with new monsters and Monster Hunter Rise is releasing later this month)
But overall…I’m just trying to hold up the small bit of positivity I can find.
So, here’s a link if you’re interested in pre-ordering my new book (CLICK HERE)…but if you aren’t that’s fine, too. If you want to check out the FIRST book in the series here’s a link to that, too (CLICK HERE).
And if you care/know about Twitch and are tempted to see someone play a game poorly with meh commentary…you can check out my stream HERE. As of right now I stream Monday & Wednesday at 2pm pst and Friday & Saturday at 7pm pst. Since I learned of my job’s fate…I may start streaming more in hopes to maybe make it a viable way to make some side money….just depends on what happens with the work situation.
ANYBUT!!! Sorry for a not interesting/funny post…but I needed to get this out to help me process that even though everything ELSE is going back to normal….my entire career path has been basically blown to smithereens…but again…..it’s mostly my own fault.
BUT I’ll survive. I’ll find a new job and I’ll keep trucking along.
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.
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.
