I have some updates about my new film and finally doing some swamp rides again. However that, you’ll have to wait for that.
This is Thanksgiv weekend. It’s all about the 3 F’s. Family, Food coma, and Football. Froze my tail off to see a pretty entertaining end to my towns thanksgiv game. Then the Cowboys kept my hopes of the Giants making the playoffs.
Then there’s today… College Football rivalry week. I’m a huge college Football fan and huge fan of College GameDay on ESPN. Fall saturdays starts at 9am with GameDay. My dad went to Michigan. Ohio State is not going to win this year.
On a totally different subject, i caved. I signed up for Disney + yesterday. Already caught up on The Mandalorian. But i watched a Marvel clip from comic-con where they revealed all the new Marvel series for Disney +. Plus all the Movies come with the DVD Extras.
My life has been controlled chaos since my uncle’s passing. On my way up to Boston for the service.
Business wise, i have had 2people drop things off this, and 3 others mention it. I’m still not done with previous projects.
Just found out In My Eyes got into 2 more festivals, one of which is in early dec. And i finally set up a time thanksgiving week to talk to someone who works to help the people that my new film would be about.
This is the start of my busy season. And so far, I welcome it… The loss has me in a vulnerable…
Uncle died last wed. Perfectly healthy. Just collapsed after swimming his morning laps.
This is my first day back in normal life… First tough day for me. Please pray for me.
I ask for you Not to bother my mom… She is fine…it was dad’s side. Do NOT call them, please.
Doing something besides biking. Arizona football game.
Can someone explain to me how halloween is already a week away? At this rate it’ll be christmas in 3 weeks.
What to say what to say… Been sorta not feeling good for pass week. Still functional, but slower. Got one of those pressure headaches. Started as sore throat. Never became a cold and sinuses seem to be clear. Got prescription that they didn’t want me to fill till today. Was hoping not to need to use it. Looks like i need to.
In other new people are starting to fill out the survey for my movie and slowly but surely trends are starting to appear; and I’m not even comparing them yet.
Cycling had been improving to the where the swamp gave me a 9.9mph average one day and i was starting to get back in a … …until I got sick.
Another ? Why did the yankees have to torture us all by tying it up (at midnight) and then pitch to Altuve?
Guess that it’s been a busy fall. Parent went away twice in Sept, almost had an editing project, starting to bike more, more converting work coming in/rumors of work to come, and a had a film this pass weekend.
As some may know the festival was right in Westfield. For the non-locals thats only 15min from my house. My actor won e a best actor award.
As for my new Film idea i now have my PR person on it. And long story short, through my dad’s company the National Organization on Disability has agreed to distribute the Survey, which is huge.
Oh my goodness, last week was such a great week career-wise.
On monday i got a fb pm request from someone who wanted me to the final edit for a movie that she did for a 72 hour film challenge. Even after telling her my limitations she was still willing to work with me. She came out to bring me the footage saturday.
Wednesday i got an email from someone i asked about interviewing for my new film project. It proved to be quite the ah-ha moment. She had written all her answers written and her disability isn’t physical. Thus proving, A. This can be done in a survey form, and B this idea does not only cover physically disabled.
Lot to do now. Solution, develop an i-help-you,-you-help-me relationship with the person I’m editing for and i have someone to create a surveymonkey.
If you or someone you know has a disability and went to/could of gone to college, please comment below. I’d love to get them the link to the survey when it’s ready.
I’m not going to dwell on it but I was surprised by the reaction when i posted the video of my dive on Facebook. The number of comments and people who came up to me…
With that out of the way, it’s sadly labor day weekend. How on earth did that happen? Anyway let’s reflect on this summer. It was hotter than hell until the 2nd week of august. Then fall came early.
Labor Day morning:
Went to do swamp. Was on that hill at far end of swamp when the rain started; pretty steady. Not quite the farest point. However for those who don’t live here, there’s no shelter for at least 4mi behind me. So I needed to continue up the hill, find shelter and call from the farthest point. As my mom said, i couldn’t possibly be farther. Here’s hoping your Labor Day plans aren’t ruined.
For the first time in my 20yrs at my town’s community pool i went off the diving board. I ‘can’t’ swim… I quote can’t because while i make it a point to never go where I can’t touch, i’m fairly convinced that i could get to the side if i had to. So i had the manager steve in the water and my high school friend Dan who came on his day off to walk me out.
What surprised me was That after jumping i went for the ladder; not Steve.
