Hello, folks! Hope you’re having a great Saturday. Mine has been eventful. In fact, the past five weeks have been all GO-GO-GO! I keep thinking, “Oh, things are finally slowing down a little bit next week,” and then the forces of the universe laugh and laugh and laugh.
Oh yeah, I’m Greg basically and Stevie is everyone else passing through my life. That’s how it feels like, ha ha.
Well, at this point I’m done with grad school, the thesis is turned in and I’m looking for jobs, which involves fine-tuning resumes and my portfolio, filling out applications, meeting folks for informational interviews, preparing for and attending job interviews, et cetera, et cetera. It’s crazy how much you have to do these days to land a job.
That’s just ONE thing keeping me busy. Among other, it’s helping my dad with the new property in West Virginia (all woods, no buildings). I have been there only once, but there’s been a lot of picking up equipment, packing and planning.
Got acquainted with our new property in West Virginia this weekend, away from the miserable cold in Michigan. We also caught a lucky break. Yesterday when this photo was taken, it was hot and sunny, and we got a lot work done in the gorge and finished setting up camp. Today, while we were driving back, it was POURING! Haven't seen a flash flood like that since our trip to North Carolina a few years ago. BTW I realized later that my #oaklanduniversity shirt was kinda fitting. There are black bears in WV, not grizzlies. . . #wearthebear🐻 #gogrizzlies #westvirginia #adventure #offthegrid (kinda) #woods #gorge #camping #building
I got a few creative writing projects of my own that I’m trying to get off the ground. Now that the thesis is finished, I also want to find a nice publisher to get it into stores all over the country and websites like Amazon. (Being invited to The Ellen DeGeneres Show would be nice, too.) One project that I want to talk about with you guys will be a new series called Food and Fitness for the blog.
It is going to be about exercising, weightlifting, nutrition and positive mental attitude. The plan for is to talk about my own journey through fitness, my takes on myths surrounding fitness, some recipes and whatever tips I can dig up about food and fitness. I’m not a certified trainer or nutritionist, just a person who loves this kind of stuff and wants to make healthier life choices. I do my own research and try to teach myself the best I can. Whenever I give advice, it will either be my own or coming from somewhere else and I will always give credit to the person or group and provide a link.
You know, my life being a circus is really my own fault because I have so many interests and keep myself busy with whatever I concoct during my spare time.
Maybe that’s why the forces of the universe are laughing.
