Okay so I didn’t get to update my log on Friday. I went to a party in the city and was hoping to dance but that didn’t happen. Left the party with a friend and went to shoot a dance video…that didn’t happen. So here I am today in New Jersey, after a weekend of just kicking it at home and lounging, ready to chill with one of my friends and probably shoot a dance video. I’ll update this later.
Okay this is a bit late but better late than never. So I started the day off doing more laundry. I have to say it went really well, I walked into an empty laundromat. An empty laundromat in my area is rare! Once all the laundry was done I dropped it off back home and then made my way to the petstore. I figured I’d buy some more gold fish for that new tank I got; had 3 fish in there and one died.
Just so you know, I’m blogging all of this while I’m at a goth/vamp party here in the city. Lol! My homie does this monthly and I told him I’d come out seeing as how I’m on vacation.
So anyway got ten new gold fish for a dollar, not too bad eh?
I spent two and a half hours working out. It was pretty sweet. Gonna post and edit later. Brb.
I worked out for two and half hours and it felt great! I was happy to do so because I was needing to have more time to myself to define myself mentally and physically. During the regular work week I don’t get enough time to workout the way I want but now with this vacation I get to focus more on it and now I get to plan on how to go about my workout routine when I do go back to work.
Posting this has been hilarious…since I’ve posted this and edited I’ve been at a party, met up with some friends, chatted, kept a friend from getting arrested and have had some good convos with a lot of friendly faces. Crazy night, good night.
Oh man, dance practice was intense. As I’m typing this now I am sore and tired. Me and my friends hit up the studio for two hours and just danced. Funny thing is we had to ask for a room change. The room they gave us didn’t have the type of mirrors we wanted and needed so we had to switch. The only thing I hated about switching rooms was the fact that they charged us an extra $12 on top of what we already paid. Boo.
So practice went smooth and tired me out. As usual, we got there, turned the music on and just jammed out but I did focus on my ground work a bit more. Doing ground work takes a lot out of you…I do a lot of push ups and pull ups and that does help me when getting on the ground but after two hours of dancing and adding ground work to that…Wow, major workout = me tired as fuck!
I got some great footage from practice and I’ll probably get around to editing that tomorrow. As of right now I’m too damn tired to focus on editing anything. I’m fucking pooped. Lol! The thought of picking up a laptop and edting is making me even more tired, it’s hard enough typing all of this out on my phone. Hahaha!
I’m not sure what the footage is gonna look like when it comes to me but I feel like I could’ve did better, maybe even pushed myself more. I don’t know, just kinda felt like I was holding back a bit. Well all in all it was a great session and I can’t wait to do it again.
Besides sleeping odd and getting up late, I can’t complain. I planned on waking up at 10am but I found myself getting up at 4am on the dot. Tired and hungry I got up, had a bowl of cereal and then went back to bed. My day didn’t get started until 12pm but that was fine. I got up showered, went grocery shopping and seperated more clothes. Right now I’m at the laundromat washing some stuff and after this it’s home to finish cleaning, start cooking and get my workout on.
It’s only been two days away from the office and I’m feeling stress free. Sure, I’m a bit low on cash seeing as how I just paid rent and all but that’s not really an issue. I didn’t grow up with a lot so when I’m a tad bit broke it’s not too bad. I have a home, food, and tons of things to do, dvds I can watch…pretty much I’m good and thankful for all. It’s right now I wish that nurse at the health fair could take my blood again, she would see that at this very moment I’m not “stressed”. Having this time to myself is relaxing.
Tomorrow is dance practice! I’m really looking forward to that. Dance practice for me means I’ll be kicking it with my good friends, listening to music I like and getting in that cardio. Dance practice always helps to me to feel free, work on new moves and learn new things. I don’t go to practice to become the best of the best, I’m not battling or anything, I’m just out to build, learn and share with my friends. These dance practices we’ve been having have been so helpful on many levels…for two hours we just dance, get silly, crack jokes and have a good time. Most times having these practice sessions is way better than going to a party. Can’t wait to get there and get it in, got to make sure I have the camera ready so I can record.
I’m probably gonna update this or just make a new post later today, we’ll see. I still have much to do.
Today is the first offical day of my two weeks vacation. I’ve been waiting for this time off for a while now because I really needed the break from all my co-workers. If I didn’t take vacation soon I would’ve ended up cursing someone out or punching people in the face…but thankfully I’m off, relaxing, not answering busy phones full of dumb questions. Lol! Seriously I work with dumb people who always call and ask me dumb questions.
Anyway, today not only starts the first day of my vacation but it starts my two week “self improvement” time. Now that I have the time I can get around to doing stuff that I haven’t had time to do. Instead of promising myself to do this and that I just called out what needs to get done and started acting on it. Right now I am cleaning my apartment and making sure I organize clothing, dvds, etc. I haven’t done that in a while…my place isn’t dirty but it is a bit messy but hey, it always smells good thanks to the candles and oils I’m always burning. Right now the place smells like cranberries; thank you Body Shop!
I already booked some studio time for later this week for me and my friends so we can have dance practice. Can’t wait to hit that up. This vacation it’s all about action. I don’t like really making promises and plans for things I want to do and need to do, I just want to act on them. Before vacation I was waking up at 5.15am jut so I could work out before work because I didn’t really have any other time to do so, well now I have the time to workout more so I’m just going to take the free time I have and use it. Maybe, just maybe, I can work out some new arrangement for that now that I know what my life is like with work hours and all…this is a chance to really look over all of that and see/find flaws.
I still have videos to edit and record, that’s another thing I’m acting on now. I started by filming a new dance video and getting footage at an event I attended this past weekend. Now I am going to sit down and edit them and once that’s done it’ll be time to record and edit more. This is the stuff I love to do. When I’m at work I always have to make “plans” to do this stuff and then find time for it and it’s always annoying because plans fall through, I end up having to pull extra hours at work…it gets old quick yah know.
Wow I just realized I haven’t blogged in forever. Haha. Well it feels good. Finally I log on to tumblr and write something instead of liking 101 pictures of tits and ass. Hahahaha! Well, back to the cleaning of the apartment. I’ll post more later. To those reading this, thanks and stay tuned.
