Busy Summer Keeping Me From Blogging

Here I am today at the WordCamp Boston 2016 (#WCBOS) gathering at Boston University. I just blogged about the passing of legendary television/movie producer Garry Marshall in the previous post while eating my lunch at this event.

I have been going to an art class on Tuesday nights which started back on June 14. I am having a good time at it, but it’s very exhausting because I go from work directly to the class in Cambridge. The last class is on August 2.

I’ve been working on a special project for the last few months. I don’t want to go into detail yet here about what it is until I have something set in stone about when I can promote it. That’s been keeping me from blogging.

Also, I have gotten sick twice since the summer has started which is not good.

On top of that, I bought a new microwave oven. The old one was very old and slowly dying on me. You wouldn’t believe how old it was. I actually bought it at Lechmere’s department store a long time ago.

We’re having a heatwave in Boston, as well as the rest of the country. Who wants to sit over a hot computer?

Damn! It’s Been A Busy Week for This Aspie!

I haven’t had the chance to do any posts on my two blogs at all because I got busy with so many other things. At other times, I felt tired and sick (thanks to PMS). Also, I feel frustrated that I can’t make any simple changes to my life except for adopting cats like Rogue and Destiny.

Last Saturday, I went to the Star Trek convention at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston. What a zoo that was! At least, I got to see a bunch of my favorite Star Trek celebs!

Sunday, I was very exhausted from the convention I went to. However, AANE was having their grand opening of their art gallery which featured 3 of my paintings. I got good reviews for my artworks, but nothing of mine sold. 😦

Monday, I had work and felt tired. That night, I still felt very tired.

Tuesday night after work, I went over to the Kendall Square Theatre in Cambridge through a heavy downpour of rain to see the 48 Hour project film festival. I had a great time there watching 7 minute films that were made in one weekend in May. Someone I know in the Boston Media Makers had her film in the contest, and her film won a few awards.

Wednesday, I went to see my social worker who I started see last fall in hopes that he can help me make changes in my life and career. So far, no changes have happened. Then, I went to the store.

Thursday, I went to the OB/GYN office at Beth Israel Hospital for a consultation and to schedule a second biopsy on my uterus because I have been experiencing irregular bleeding. I was there almost all day because the OB/GYN doctor I was seeing wouldn’t schedule the second biopsy until she could examine my vagina (the previous OB/GYN doctor had examined it at least 3 times already and did the first biopsy which didn’t get enough tissue). The exam rooms were all busy that morning. After 1:15 in the afternoon, she finally saw my vagina for 5 minutes and then scheduled the 2nd biopsy for next Wednesday.

I missed a day at work (no big deal because I don’t like my job, but it does give me health benefits). Thursday night, I went over to the Brattle and saw DJango Unchained. Great movie!

Sure wish I had some free time to blog more.
