still here...

It's been a while since I've had anything of remote interest to say...but I promised not to quit, so here I am, actively NOT quitting!

Three (3) things I haven't quit this summer:

1) Growing my bangs out: I've NEVER successfully done this, in my entire life, and I vowed I'd do it this time without getting so frustrated that I grabbed dull kitchen scissors and ended the misery. And guess what? The exact thing I hoped would happen is happening - my hair is becoming less of a pain in the ass. WHAT???

b) Trying to eat right and lose 20 lbs: Check it out, 2 lbs. lost! I know, that's kinda nothing, but it puts be back below that number that really freaked me out. And it's where I was 2 years ago. I'll get there...and maybe I'll realize 20 lbs. could be a little excessive. All I know is that I don't want to wake up at age 45 realizing that I slowly gained 15 pounds out of sheer laziness. If it's only 2 pounds here and there, that'll do.

iii) MUSIC! Honestly! I actually played a show this summer, and picked up my guitar...and PLAYED it. Amazing, considering. It gave me that mini ass-kick I've been looking for, and I'm actually inspired to get back to it. That's not saying a WHOLE lot, because there are still no new songs to show for it. But I was onstage again, and it felt right. I know I need to get back there more often, and I actually feel like I WANT to for a change.

Now for the things I HAVE quit, for the time being:


Yeah, I know.
