It Feels Like Starting Over

Because in a lot of ways I am…

Hurting Since Running
Remember that one time I ran last week? I’ve had some pain in my body since. It may not help that I’ve also been fighting off some sickness since Tuesday either, but this may mean a trip to my doctor in the near future — before my healthcare goes away.

If I can get the doctor to check out the bump that has remained on my eyelid since the eye swelled in the Spring I can get two-for-one deal. Heck, if I can figure out a way to hurt myself again before seeing her I can score a rare three-for-one visit!

A Wee Little Bit Of Coding, A Wee Little Bit Of German
Yesterday I launched the habits of doing some studying of coding and German each day.

Given that I am learning Apple’s newest programming language, Swift, I completed an obligatory “Hello World” app, as well as a rudimentary app that does a simply calculation. Baby steps. Today I will continue on my Swift-learning journey.

Today I will also make my first draft of the German homework I need to do this week — write a paragraph in German about the behaviors that constitute a “typical” man and “typical” woman. To me the theme of this chapter is a strange one to be teaching someone who has immigrated to Germany, our books are the official books used by Goethe, but it’s what we are learning.

“Eddie’s Attic Strong” (Decatur, Georgia, United States)
Eddie's Attic Strong
Last might I attended “Blues for Justice” at Eddie’s Attic. Because the person responsible for getting me into the show couldn’t arrive before 8:15pm, the band started playing at 7:30pm, I decided to sit at the outside bar and cut-up with the staff while drinking. I misjudged how long the band was going to play and only heard their final two songs after going into inside. For what it’s worth I did enjoy the songs I heard.

Prior to going into Eddie’s I walked around the square a bit. Since I wasn’t feeling my best, I decided to head to Java Monkeys for a couple of cups of coffee to perk me up. While sitting outside drinking my coffee I was even able to Poké a few Mons; seriously, I didn’t even have to get out of my chair to do so.

Let’s Hope I Don’t Get Blocked In Again
Today I will be going to meet up for lunch with some friends with whom I used to work. Let’s hope that I don’t have a replay of last week’s police activity which blocked me in. Maybe I will be a little smarter this week and park in such a way that makes it virtually impossible to get blocked in.

Can You Feel It?
I say “October 8th.”
You say “Huh? What’s October 8th?”
I say “It’s International ‘Inside The Perimeter Day’!”

Tomorrow, October 8th, marks the twelfth anniversary of my first blog post. Back then I was posting to Blogspot and cross posting to LiveJournal. Strange, right? And they said it wouldn’t last…

To celebrate I may be attending Porchfest in Oakhurst, potentially going to use my ticket for “Thurgood” at Theatrical Outfit, and definitely packing up the M6 for a Sunday drive to the west coast of Florida to visit my mother. It appears as is Hurricane Matthew has spared her portion of the state, and with any luck I won’t have too much difficulty driving to her house on Sunday.

And on Monday I will start it all over again for Year 13.

Have a great weekend, friends.

    “…about the behaviors that constitute a “typical” man and “typical” woman” in Germany? So, it’ll be about drinking beer then? 🙂
