Finally! A Vacation

I am on my way to NH for my first vacation since this entire pandemic started. And boy do i need it. I continue to have a backlog of converting work and my BACHELOR’S IN DISABILITY project continues to move forward. I am extremely ready to create a ‘board of directors’ to help with some major decisions.

I am starting to bike the swamp again now. I am so glad that they finally repaved the other half of the swamp. They probably hadn’t done IN 25 years. The first half was done a year ago. To give you an idea, going from new pavement to ancient pavement is like going from smooth stuff to sand paper.

Anyway, 4 days IN the mountains with a pool and little cell service sound ideal.

Flipping Out over the new flip-phone

I got a new phone. The thing that makes this amazing is that flip-phones have finally recognized that it is not 2007 anymore. (cue “the hallelujah chorus)

My new phone will finally allow me to receive/send emails. No longer limited to being on my computer to get or type them. Faster to type on my phone. That said, the transition to pr edictive typing from T9 will some getting use to.

Also, sending a post from an email will hopefully allow me to title them now.

Live from the town pool which reached the may limit soon after arrived.

so where have i’ve been? I just had the busiest month of work since dog6i my thesis. I was on an edit for a celebration of 30yrs of the ADA. It was them hardest and most fun gig ever. I world with an all disabled group. From all over the country.

I still have a long backlog of converting orders. Current list will take until Sept October…and more keep coming. And I’ve also host my film project that i’ve got to get back to people on. So yeah… Universal was tooLong ago.

I haven’t posted since before everything happened. I started with some increase in anxiety and maybe little depression. As most of you know i’ve responded to Facebook’s attitude issue by creating TIM’S CORONA POSITIVITY CHALLENGE. The support has been remarkable.

Screen eye strain is a big issue for me right now. Converting is busier than ever and the film project is accelerating…

That’s all for now…eye strain.

Ok. Other than the fact that it was 10degrees cooler than we’d hoped (jeans and sweatshirt to the park, heated water saved the Waterpark) it was a perfect trip. I think we were just happy to escape Jersey. I talked to a lot of other people from up north who were there for that same reason.
For anyone going to Universal, “Hagrid’s magical flying motorcycles” is now THE ride at universal. Worth a 2hr+ wait. We also saw the Blue Man Group…no tp 😥

Ready to start working fuller days again. I here we are warmer at home and sun stayingu up an extra hour. Now I’m going to … 1st class

I start this post in a quieter Newark airport than normal. Dad came up to my room friday, where i had been watching movies since 330, and said “want to go to FL next week?” Was he kidding? I need to escape this weather. I’m getting antsy and starting to regularly begin my tv watching by 4-430; not to mention that waking up around 9 on weekdays is becoming too common.

We are going to be staying at Universal. Same resort as a few years ago. Going to their Waterpark which is my current favorate due to it, anything but lazy, river. I also hope to ride the Incrible Hulk coaster. It was under renovation last time. Plus a spring training game, with a friend that I Skype every other week that is bound to make someone jealous…

Today’s agenda includes laps around the resort’s lazy river, as I completely forget my age, and maybe some mini-golf or other evening activity.

In terms of my film, i managed to finish my 1st impression notes from the data. I still have a long way to go though.

It’s the dead of winter. I’m getting more and more excited about my new film project. I finally found someone to help with a behind the scenes documentary on the planning for the larger film. This has forced me to write down some concret ideas for both. I am at the point where I need to consider getting a grant or raising money. On my business side, I got the mother of all projects right now.

Even with all this i winter is starting to get to me. Rain rain and more rain. This was the first decent day in a while. Yet, it’s back to netflix.

Just finished 2nd week of this alternating days between converting and work thing. First week was difficult to separate. On monday, i sorta realized how strict I have to be. Interestingly it may also help me to keep that work off of weekends…

The film is becoming an interesting puzzle…doing data analysis when you went to art school is like being the poor guy in Hitchiker’s guide to the galaxy. Thank goodness for mentors.

I did bike yesterday for the first time in a week. Tried going out wednesday? Lasted 13min in the 16degree weather. Temperature supposily measures warmth…yet we use fahrenheit?

At Denver Airport about to head home from my annual ski trip. As usual, great trip to use as a RESET for the new year. We had another great trip. Went out with a bang yesterday. Did some 360s, some jumps and some trees. For disabled people of all ages i highly recommed the National sports Center for the Disabled in Winter Park, CO.
So while i was there i asked if the could distribute my form for BA in Disabled. They said yes. I just need to email it to the guy i talked to.
Starting next week i am going to begin alternating days working on Studio461 and BA in Disabled as much as possible. Don’t worry, when a due date is involved, that will take priority. Hopefully i will find a system that works.
