Alive and well in Amsterdam, NL. It’s pretty cold and wet… but to be honest, it’s not as bad as I thought...
1 whole year sober (from alcohol) as I write this.
I have decided to stay sober. The level of fun I had in the last weeks of the year was proof enough for me that alcohol does not add any value to my time. When I was younger and still discovering myself (and considerably more self conscious) it acted as a nice buffer between my insecurities and acted as a social lubricant. I don’t need that anymore.
A strange psychological tweak happened because of this decision to stay sober. Before there was always a sort of… Time Limit to my sobriety. Now it just… is life. And when it stopped being a decision I was making everyday and became a simple fact of life, all of the brain chatter about it disappeared.
Still working for Netflix. Still loving it. My region is blowing up and we’re in a constant and worthwhile struggle to stay ahead of the work.
Wheel of Time Series by Robert Jordan (on book 7. So close to being done with this one.)
Current Exercise Routine:
I have 18 days from this point to get beach body ready for a Mexican wedding. I’ve been using the FitBod app every morning to plan my workouts. It’s pretty neat.
J’apprendre le Français.
Just bought a year of Masterclass, so I’m excited to dive into their offerings
Saturday Sun by Vance Joy on the guitar. It’s 4 simple chords repeated, so I should have no excuse not to learn the guitar!
Update: I have memorized the chords and am proficient with the strum pattern, now attempting to put it all together. Next stop: adding words.
Currently working on:
I should say I’ve been working on Alex is Awake (my first novel), but it’s been nearly 10 months since I really picked it up. My life has changed and this is not my immediate priority any longer.
