At Yankees spring training with Joan Borton and Mr. Wise Guys.
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.
Ho Ho Ho. This will be the first time in many years we will be with relatives all day on actual Christmas Day which is pretty cool.
It’s been a very interesting holiday season. I started last week coasting. Tuesday i got a form from someone who had what ended up be 25 tapes. ‘I understand if you can’t, but is it possible to do these by Christmas?… Actually wasn’t too bad. I personally don’t like the idea of a ‘rush’ project hanging over the break.
I’ve been getting ou on my bike more regularly. Did santa twice. Have gone around swamp a few times. And 2 flats.
I also heard back from the national organization on Disabilities and have set up a time to interview someone. This is part of my research for BA in Disable. More on the start of Phase 2 later.
Doorbell rings at 2pm on Monday. Dad answers. 13 year old neighbor, “can tim come sled?” dad turns to me i say, “i’d love to but I need to work… After dad closes the door i say, “I hate snow December.” ¿¿I have already have work for Christmas coming in. The good news is that at least not everyone is waiting until the very last minute to submit orders. Although, I suspect a few last minute orders… by the way things are looking. Which is fitting with Murphy’s law. ¿¿I talked to someone about my new film idea last week and got a whole bunch of new ideas…. I guess that will have to wait until the new year. I just hope this snow doesn’t keep my biking in the garage much longer or things might get VERY interesting! As for my next post, I should probably say “Merry Christmas” now…
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…
Pet therapy anyone? (10wks) Plus Christian background music.
