Text: so I haven't updated this in awhile

and I removed all of my old videos.
(long story, but i learned my lesson)

it's nice to have fallen into a gig
that'll keep me nested in a somewhat familiar habitat...

...but I fear that is just an illusion.

at least I keep telling myself that.
but how long can i keep observing
an illusion as real before my mind
accepts it as reality?

thankfully, the weather is nice.
plenty of nature to expore. every
week I learn about new places to
go hiking or swimming...

...if and when i get that rare free
moment, I hope to have the energy
left to actually prioritize that!
(double optimism)

all summer, the momentum of my
day-to-day demands has kept me
feeling like I am trapped in a state
of exhausted motion

[irony noted]

at least it's helping me ignore just
how surreal I should find all of this,
and i am ignoring it quite well.

i am trying to approach it as my
ability to keep up with these
demands directly reflects qualities
of my inner self...

...and my inner self has a fierce
determination to be able to watch
the World Series this year.

right now, nothing sounds better
than an actual game. I could use an
excuse to try out some obscene
gestures i've acquired

but given that I was so
overwhelmed with busy work
yesterday that i had to be reminded
that it was already the Fall Equinox...

I am going to try and keep my
expectations realistic. Believe me,
I know that the closest i may get is
watching it on live TV.

I am glad at least that I found the
time to write a little tonight.

i should remind myself to do it
more often.

I've had a long day, so i'm off to let
my mind focus on a fantasy that
actually might show even greater
optimism on my part...

[and believe me, if i could help
make it happen I would]

but I'd love it if the Dodgers and the
Angels faced off next month.

but given my track record as of
late, i haven't been so hot with
most of my predictions.

[I most sincerely hope I'm due]



[Please tell Mom and Dad that I'm thinking of them, i miss you too]
