Thanks, the message means a lot. I have to hang in and grind it out, hopefully there will be easier times to come. How's work coming with you? Are you still boxing? Wanna fight? Haha no don't hit me please. Hope you're well. 

Just seen this. We're in Gulf Shores for a week. Glad to see you're toughing it out. You're made of strong stuff, you'll get through it. I'm still working part time, it's ok. Pays ok, the hours are great.

 

I'm helping to teach kids at the local PAl gym. Since I had that trouble with my left eye I've been fighting some other problems with it. Surgeon said absolutely no sparring or hits to the head anymore, so I'm screwed. I still work out with the bags but that's all. I hope you and everyone else are doing well. I'm kinda living the dream right now.

i'm sure the surgeon would allow sparring with small, since he punches like a five year old girl.

I'm glad you're doing well, I've always rooted for you. Blah. The eye. I'm sure you have a lot of boxing knowledge you can pass on to the younger guys though. You can be that wise, mysterious coach in the gym that the kids tell tales about. Still, it must suck that you can't glove up and throw some leather. Enjoy the holiday, and let us know how it went when you get back!

This made me lol. I actually don't punch. I slap. I close my eyes, lean back, and wave my arms around hoping that I somehow survive the ordeal.

I had to laugh. Sounds like me. I'll walk away or anything to avoid a fight. Like I said before I'd rather trade recipes than punches any day.  I know....Res will love this.?

Hello,

It's Monday night, and I am taking a break from doing some work I had to catch up on. Earlier I made myself a meal - throwing 2 waffles, 4 fish fingers, 2 eggs and 2 pieces of toast on the pan. All washed down with 2 cups of tea. During my break I decided to browse the forum - happy to see that @IrmaJean locked Resolute's thread as promised. I won't go into how I'm dealing with that whole situation, for some reason, I really don't want to talk about it.

 

Well I'm lonely, and I haven't posted an update in a while so figured I might as well give it a go. I hope everyone is doing reasonably well, and feel free to post their situations on here if they want to.

Health

My memory still sucks. I have old memories that come back to me from time to time, but generally speaking I can be pretty forgetful. Storing new memories usually end up vague too. Other than that, my brain seems to be operating optimally. I feel fine otherwise.

Work

I used to think that it wasn't in my nature to devote myself to my job but it seems I was wrong. I spend most of my time working, and I tend to take a great deal of pride in it these days. I should have some wonderful or devastating developments by the end of the year so there's that. I have also started working on a fiction novel recently. I actually showed the first 3 chapters to Resolute very shortly before his passing & he was a little disturbed by it. So yay me.

Mood

I am generally still glum and melancholic. I have developed a sort of spite over the past few months that I didn't have recently, which when put into the concoction of other shit - makes me no fun. Living within myself I am an introverted mess of all sorts of negative emotions, even though the developments in my life have been mostly positive.

Overall

 

I'm 31 now so I'm not young anymore. I have knuckled down on the important things in my life, a decade late, so I am at a disadvantage. I like my job & hopefully I will get to keep doing it. My life feels a lot like being in a small shack inside a huge storm. War is around the corner - seeping in through the cracks in the walls. I don't know how it will go or where I'll end up. But god willing I will manage. 

Thanks for taking an interest.

Thank you for the update. It's good to hear from you. I'm glad you recognize some positive developments happening in your life. I hope work continues to go well and you continue to write your novel. Maybe, in time, the shack you are inside of now will feel sturdier and the storm outside will feel less formidable.

I have been busy with work and family. We have been in the process of some major changes at work, but all in all I think I have been adjusting well. I recently turned 49 :icon_eek: (31 still seems fairly young to me), next year will be the big one, as my brother teases. I enjoy writing too, though I mostly write fan fiction. I'm not sure I could ever create my own characters. That seems very challenging.

Does writing help you to cope with or express negative emotions? In my experience, artists tend to be very hard on themselves regarding their work. Maybe this is common with authors as well? I think it's cool that Resolute had the opportunity to read your work in progress, even if he found it disturbing. (You know it wasn't boring)

Take care.
