I’ll be honest. It’s been hard getting back into work. Especially because I haven’t worked in two months, I’ve been sleeping in the living room the past few nights and I know that there are slow forces at work leading my life into a new direction. I might be doing different work in 3 years. I might be still doing English teaching part-time but also involved in another career. I’m still not right on the right time and simple things seem a bit daunting but then they work out exactly as planned more or less and so I’m getting back on my feet.
I received two new photographs of mine printed onto canvas and I”m really excited about it because I’m going to do my next photo exhibitions with the photos printed like this. I’m especially excited that the digitized negative is enough to do it. THAT means that my next camera will be a good digital SLR. The might be a purchase next year but first I want to get a new laptop when I’m home at Christmas time. 3 years will have passed since I got this toshiba beaut i got her but I fear that technology has moved rather quickly the past 3 years and I could keep this laptop at home and the other could be a more mobile laptop or vice versa.
I have yet to write any material in The Newropean since early August. I’m feeling the official end of a period of time today and tomorrow being October 1st, the beginning of the 4th quarter in America, I’m going to consider it a day to get started with some plans again. I have gone to the gym twice and the good weather will ensure I’ll go jogging tomorrow. With regards to the Newropean, I’ve almost got the story under control but I have to send it in a distinct direction next and I want to make sure I know how I want to portray that before and I just had an idea. I have a basic outline how i want the story to go and so maybe i can practice and write out a scene on the list, even if it’s not the next scene, just to see how the tone in a chapter or two should sound.
And then I have a class with retired people and I have to try and explain to them why people in America would protest with signs of Obama with a Hitler mustache because he has a healthcare plan to help working Americans.
