I’m gonna start blogging again. However, instead of writing a new post every single day, I’ll be posting once a week. Unless I feel like there’s more to say, but my weekly minimum post count shall be one.
Over the past few weeks I’ve been clicking through my blog and rediscovering some aspects of my recent history that have helped me to gain a greater sense of place and progress. Some of the posts have also reminded me for what I used to hope and strive. It’s a good exercise, and exactly the point of my *formerly* daily blog.
I hope that by resuming my blog, I’ll exercise my creative mind and aspire to put fingers to plastic in my never ending pursuit of doing stuff. Also, I hope to be more accountable to myself and continue documenting what I’m thinking for future Matthew to reflect upon.
Until next post! 😸
I was sitting here feeling uninspired to write. So I decided to count through my blog posts and when I realized that this post would be number sixteen, I flipped! Mentally. I’m toobe tired to physically flip right now. Plus there’s not enough space to do that here in my room.
There’s a podcast called The Inner Tube that I used to listen to all of the time. Over the course of the show’s run, several inside jokes have developed, and one of the most prominent ones is the phrase, “we’re up to sixteen now!” The hosts also turn anything that sounds remotely like “tube” into “toobe”, hence the title of this post.
So there’s that!
Let’s just do an update.
I’m still not doing completely well, but I am doing better. Some really amazing friends hung out with me in the past few days, and that’s helped. I am completely thankful for their time and love and I’m so blessed to have them as close friends.
I’ve been really pumped about making food again. A fact that is very apparent if you visit my Instagram feed! 😛 It hit me super suddenly yesterday when I woke up, and it’s still in me today. Although, today I lacked the energy to actually do anything super creative with what I ate. Unless you count mixing peanut butter into the vanilla icing on a slice of cake. That was good!
One of my friends is forcing me to visit them this weekend, so I’ll be taking a short weekend trip in a few days. I’m excited about that! And I will see the doctor on Friday, which is a little overdue. But it’s happening. Yay for Crohn’s!
I’m cutting it close with this post! I’ve been working on writing up a bunch of stuff for The Aux Cable (my podcast with Ryan Matlock), and I got carried away. Oh well! Here comes my post of the day. 🙂
Let’s just do an update, eh?
My body has been feeling horrible lately, and it’s likely mostly due to my Crohn’s. But today was a really good day! The sun was shining brightly and my tummy wasn’t hurting. What more could I ask for?
I started with an early morning conference call (while still in bed) that went very well and ended with much laughter. Then I napped for a little bit, made some really yummy food, and then played some Just Dance. After singing in the shower, I decided to pack up my things so I could do my work outside. I mean, it’s a gorgeous day! How could I not be outside in the fresh, warm air? It was soooo nice to be outside, especially after the rain of the past two weeks. Rain is great too, but it can be depressing after several days.
When I came back inside for the evening, my sinuses became all stuffed, I’ve been sneezing like crazy, and I keep having to blow my nose! My allergies have kicked in over the past few weeks because of a new kitty in the house, which has been manageable. But I’m thinking that these symptoms have something to do with being outside today. Which is lame. I love being outside, this can’t happen!
Note to self: Maybe you should undergo some allergy testing?
I also got to hang out with a friend and introduce them to Corner Gas.
Anywhozzles, today I’m extremely thankful for the sunshine and for feeling much better!
