Hi there, everybody. I’ve been incredibly busy lately so I haven’t been very active on here or any other social media account. I can assure you that I’m alive. Last week, I even recorded a really interesting podcast episode. In one of those very rare instances where I go back and listen to it, I’ve noticed that there was some really awful static in some places so I’ve decided to hide it from the general public. I’ll record a new one either tomorrow or Thursday.
Since we’ve chatted, I’ve been trying to work a bit more. I know this sounds awful, but for me to pay for the things I want, to pay my bills while I’m in the USA, and to pay bills… now, I need to work at least two days per week. I’ve been trying to go beyond that when I can, just in case. With a few of my extra days I’ve worked, I’ve bought myself a shiny new Series 4 Apple Watch and I’ve been pretty happy with it so far. I didn’t see a need to talk about it on an episode.
One of the things I said a long time ago is that if I got one, it would encourage me to exercise more. Well, it’s hasn’t really had that effect. I do move around a bit more to shut it up and to stop it nagging me. I figure once I move away from where I’m living, I’ll head back to the gym. (There isn’t one in the town I live in, so it makes things really difficult. I know I can exercise, but I’m so much more inclined to do so at a proper gym.)
I end up closing 2/3 rings. I close the stand up for a minute every hour ring and the burn kilo Joules/calories ring. Exercise? Not so much.
I also decided to not get the one with cellular service because sometimes I don’t really want to be contacted. When work calls, I sometimes don’t want to know. I’ll watch them call and leave a message. Then I anxiously listen to my voicemail or call them back and they’re like “Can you come to work in 30 minutes?” Sometimes I just don’t want to go to work. I haven’t passed up many opportunities to stay home lately, but sometimes I need a break. (Today’s one of those days. I go back tomorrow.)
That’s what’s happening now. Just working. It’s oddly strange not to be struggling. I like it. I’m looking forward to my time off at the end of the year, but also dreading it as well.
I’ll be back in a few days! Take care, all.
