Last weekend I made a couple of decisions that have severely affected my life this past week.
The first one came friday when I decided to participate in Nanowrimo (national novel writing month) which started on the 1st of November (monday). The goal is to write a novel with a minimum of 50,000 words by the end of the month. So far, I'm behind. Probably due to the fact that I have a job, and then I have a wife and dogs to be with when I get home. I don't feel overwhelmingly motivated to use this creative outlet, probably because I have several creative outlets already. Anyways, its been going slow. I did have a breakthrough day today with it and doubled my word count, I could get caught up by the end of the weekend at the rate I'm going.
I even went to a "write in" which is essentially an event where you show up and write with other people who are participating. There were probably 15 people there, and it was fun and motivating, I've enjoyed the process so far. The only issue is, I'm mentally exhausted thanks to work and this using up the creative juices. I'm not even done with the first week too lol.
Cute K and I signed up for a local gym here in Duvall. We've been wanting a gym membership ever since we moved to washington and finally found somewhere to go that was close to home and not outrageously priced. So far, I've gone every morning this week... that's before work. That means I'm getting up earlier and working out in the morning on top of the new activities I'm doing at night. It's taking its toll.
not this weekend, but next weekend K and I are flying out to vegas for the weekend. I hope its a relaxing trip for us. We just want to eat some good food at a fancy restaurant or two, go see the jabbawokeez dance on sat night, and waste some of our money. It should be fun.
