Torture Yourself Tuesday seems to be exactly where I’m at instead of treating myself. I went out last night again and now have to pick up the pieces. I didn’t hurt myself. I didn’t really overspend. I just woke up with a minor hangover and not having gotten everything done that I wanted to do yesterday. It means that I start today with more on my plate that I originally planned.
I made it to the gym first thing. And with going to the gym, I started my laundry. I do not do anything exceptional at the gym. My biggest issue right now is just making it to the gym. I got on a bicycle, and just rode the bike for 20 minutes. The laundry, I just threw in the washer. Both of these things were incredibly important to get done. I needed clean underwear. I needed clean socks. And I needed clothes for both of my jobs.
Most of the rest of the day is going to be spent writing. I have all the writing I did not finish yesterday and all the writing that I wanted to do today. Finishing my novel led me to needing to write another review so that I do not get behind. I also have various graphic novels that I need to review. I try to always write 500 words, which means I would be writing close to 8,000 words today just in things that I want to write.
I also have a social get together later tonight with some friends. It’s an event with the mayors from Jersey City and Hoboken talking about where we are at with LGBT initiatives as well where they want to go. I have friends who work directly with Hudson Pride, and being an LGBT member myself, I’d like to see where things are going. I spend the majority of my time in Jersey City, which makes it my city as well as there, even if I don’t live there. It’s also a good time to hang out with my friends.
I did figure out my next couple of reads. I have a Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers graphic novel to finish as well as I found my uncensored copy of the Picture of Dorian Gray. I need to get one of them read, and the other one I need to start.
Right now, I am finishing my laundry and just getting my writing done. I’m watching Power Rangers Time Force. I also need to go out and get some kind of food. My stomach is beginning to grumble even as I sit here and write this blog post.
Today may turn out to be a lot of work, but in the end, it will be worth it. I will sit here and write quite a bit of my posts and reviews. I’ll finish my laundry. I’ll get some food. And then, I’ll meet with my friends. It’ll make for a hard yet productive day. Here goes nothing.
