Almost a year ago, I decided to unplug from Facebook. Between politics and people just being assholes, it turned more into noise. And that noise was/is distracting. Especially when I'm trying to focus on my studies and work.
I was so nervous I could barely hear myself think. The long drive didn't help. But here I was, standing inside. Freaking the hell out. The last time I took a boxing class was a year and a half ago. Here I was watching people skipping rope and me getting pissed off that I didn't have time to change shoes.
Life have been busy. Training has been varying between three days a week to seven days a week, then back down to three. I was given a great opportunity to go back to school, so that's where most of my free time has been dedicated to. Plus a few other projects.
Been doing quite a bit more of freelance graphic design. Which also includes websites. So this site is going to slowly be converted into my graphic design/freelance site. I made the decision at the beginning of the year when I kept getting little side projects. So I decided to get back into freelance. It won't fully go live until I have everything ready and it's 100% perfect.
My blog is going to be moved. Right now, it's a timely process. I need to save the articles and images and prepare the way I want the articles to be posted on the site. Coding takes time. And a lot of it. Especially when it comes to parts that I haven't done in years. So I'm hoping by October both sites will be ready. I'm also hoping by that time I will have mastered it all.
A few things had to be knocked down to be accomplished next year since I've had some unexpected expenses come up (car, computer, etc.). But one day they will all be achieved.
Also, because of life and school I'm taking a step back from Facebook for awhile. It's too distracting. I'm still on Instagram and post as often as I can.
Figured I'd post an update so you guys don't think I've disappeared. :)
I'm not writing some "love yourself" type article. That will probably come at a later date. I'm writing something that I've been thinking about writing for years. It didn't originally stem from the movie How To Be Single, which by the way, is not really how all single people live. It came from years of people coming to me asking for advice on how I remain single and am actively not trying to date.
Thanks to goals, I’ve been getting back to some hardcore training. A mixture of powerlifting, boxing, and conditioning. The last two weeks has been all about getting back to basics. Focusing on form, making sure everything is perfect. Last night was the first time, I went back to my normal training. Weights, sprints, and bag work.
Like most Americans, I have a lot of crap. A lot of stuff I don’t need, don’t use, and don’t even know why I still have it. Why I have all of this stuff, years of thinking “One day I’ll do this,” or “One day I’ll wear this.”
