The Boy and I had four of our closest friends over to watch the premiere of Star Trek: Discovery this evening, and I would say that it (both our party and the premiere) was a success.

Hey all, long time no see (matter of speech).

How are you guys doing? I've been doing very well myself.

I've disappeared off the face of DW and lj, once again, huh? Since announcing I was starting a new adventure with coaching and my health/physical health.

It's still an absolute work in progress. I haven't been able to really connect with anyone yet. Not quite. And I have a challenge I wanna start October 2nd. I actually have 3 people but one of them is going to the gym regularly and the second one doesn't seem to know what she wants (but it's a money thing mostly) and the third one is actually excited to start.

It's hard mainly because I'm in introvert, shy, don't know how to approach people and such and I have to talk about myself a lot, not trying to sell my products but also talk about them and what they're doing for me and new products and programs coming out. Hard work.

And I gotta do personal development. To get out of my shell, my comfort zone, get an easier approach, better myself in my posts, to attract people and have them join in and, possibly, sign up as well.

It's life changing, really. It takes time and, honestly, I didn't put enough energy into my peersonal development and well, everything's affected. But I added new people and I try to connect with them but I also still clueless on how to approach them after adding.

Yesterday, there was a big Beachbody event that I participated in. I am soooooo happy I did. I got to hear other coaches stories. Top coaches. I got to have some sort of training on Facebook and I got to do a workout with one of the trainers from the platform we have with all the programs to workout. It was intense and really nice. All workouts are intense though but... yeah...

I've been spending half my time in the Beachbody world, so to speak, and basically left everything else aside. Work excluded, of course because I can't forget about that but yeah.

In the beginnings, and a lot of the time, I do have to spend it on my business, because that's what it is. I mean, if I am successful and all, I can get paid for the work I'm doing, for helping people. I could generate a really nice revenue and stuff but I gotta work at it, put all the effort needed (and more) and I gotta sacrifice a few things in order to make that business work.

But I don't wanna forget on the other things and I have been wanting to come back on here for a while but didn't.

Forgive me? ;) :p

Not even sure what to tag this entry with...

Never try to mean girl at a Slytherin.

I just need to find a good picture. Suggestions?

People keep making the mistake of thinking that just because I'm nice, I'm a pushover. Or gullible. Or both.

That is...beyond hilarious as a concept.

Fuck everyone today.

(Work issues, though I've run into the same idea outside of work, I suppose. I will elaborate when I'm not vaguebooking on a work computer on a work network.)

Not because I dislike the heat, because I unironically like 90+ degree hot, humid weather, but because it's given the ragweed fresh life. I'm sneezing non-stop.

Out of curiosity, is anyone interested in a Kindle Paperwhite. It's the previous edition, so it's not the latest one, but it still works perfectly fine. Pretty much the only time that I use it nowadays is when I'm traveling via plane, which I don't see happening any time soon since I don't plan on going back to Tennessee for the holidays this year. So since my checking account is still somewhat lighter than I'd like, I thought that I'd at least see if anyone might want one.

I also still have quite a few things available in the virtual garage sale post that I put up several weeks ago. And I'm very much willing to haggle when it comes to listed prices, if you're interested in anything.

(Oh, and for those of you who donated to my Ko-fi page and requested fic, it's coming! The last few weeks have been absolutely hell, which deserves its own post, but things are calming down and I actually have time to breathe again.)

We were reviewing the kidlet's U.S. history project on Colonial Virginia, which involved Jamestown, and I took it kind of farther than his teacher did. (I do that a lot. History is broadly expansive.) Also I got to explain that Captain John Smith was an asshole, and I got to whine later to Mr. Havoc that I really don't like Pocahontas (the Disney film), not because I don't like Pocahontas (she was awesome), but because John Smith was an asshole, not a romantic lead.

You have no idea how much my dad told me about John Smith and Jamestown when I was a kid. You really have no idea.

So I also learned that the kidlet didn't know why the Church of England formed, and this all culminated in my explaining to him that Henry VIII wanted to get remarried, the Pope told him no, and the Henry said, essentially, "Screw you, I'm the King of England! I'll start my own church!"

It was a glorious moment. I love being a parent.

Other than major news incidents, which are mostly weather-related these days. Okay, not really, but I'm not getting into politics right now. I'm not in the right headspace to handle that.

Please tell me how you're doing! What's going on in your life?

Things in my life after the kidlet's bar mitzvah have mostly been terrible and I'm not ready to talk about them yet, which is why I haven't been updating any of them yet. Distract me from that, please.

I'm so far behind on my tv-watching that I'm just now getting to the Supergirl finale. One spoilery quibble with the first half of the finale that relates to U.S. Constitutional law. )

I'm very much enjoying everything about Supergirl otherwise, at least. I haven't even touched on my summer tv watching yet. It's been that kind of summer.
