[Novel 02] Live-Writing Novel 02?

Over the past few months, I’ve practiced live-writing and live-editing to the degree where I feel like I could be talking right now, except, I’m not. I don’t know how I’ll write “The Story,” but I know unlike the slam of time I spent with Novel 01, I’d rather take my time with Novel 02. I don’t know if I’ll write Novel 02 here, but I’ll certainly record bits of it – although to what capacity, I don’t know.

[Tripping On…] Halfway Through Experiment

I think it’s about halfway through my experiment of seeing if I could search for jobs and find something before needing to call on different resources. I haven’t physically been doing much lately, and I was feeling sick with a headache earlier this week, so I don’t feel like I’ve made much progress, but progress is rarely linear. I can always do more tomorrow, especially if I don’t push myself too hard today and rest.

[Tripping On…] Insurance …OK’d PT?

I reached out to my case manager at Molina after hearing from my PT on Wednesday that Molina had denied my benefits. They called in a panic, not exactly able to blame me for that or perhaps more feeling stressed over losing out over two sessions worth of PT, but my impression was Molina denied them. My-Today/Friday, I reached out to the case manager for an update, and just before end-of-day, I received an answer…?

[Tripping On…] Ice Relieved Headache

My-Yesterday was wiped out because of a headache that wouldn’t go away. I realized late into the evening that it was probably my neck muscles, so I put an icepack on the back of my neck, zoned out to some videos, and waited for the muscles to numb enough to where I could sleep comfortably. This mostly worked. I woke up not feeling well, but I had a few strategies in mind not involving painkillers.

[Tripping On…] Insurance Denied PT

Despite all of the previous uselessness of my Molina case manager, there is one good thing that this person has done, after putting in less than five minutes of work into figuring out how to help me with things. Less than one hour before my PT appointment my-today, I received a call from them cancelling the appointment today and Saturday because my insurance denied the PT. The case manager will look into what happened exactly.

[Downsizing Zeal] 21: CDs, DVDs, Books

During the float tank session I did my-today, I thought about all of the aspects of my move-out of the apartment-mansion. I thought at length, while laying in the hot bath of Epsom salts, about what I needed to move next as part of the puzzle that is downsizing out of a lifetime of clutter. The CD downsizing side of the project is going well, so, I might as well sort through the DVDs, too.

[Tripping On…] Headache Kills Motivation

My-Today, I had the worst headache I’ve had in what feels like years. I can barely focus on much and I will have trouble writing because I have trouble concentrating. This 500-word daily writing goal seems so far off for me right now. I will do the best I can and part of that involves closing my eyes and writing without spell checking, because that’s the accurate depiction of my life as I expected it.

[Float Tank] Floatbook Thoughts 02

My-Today was my second float tank session in over two yearsAfter the first, I did a live-writing session where I wrote my thoughts for a little under one hour, recorded the whole time, and I felt that was a great way to talk through my thoughts while floating. This is not a rigorous medical case study, but rather a subjective “trip report,” that being said, there is medical research being done for float tanks.

[Novel 02] Finding Of Hobbies

One major thing I’m learning as I traject myself toward writing “The Story” that I failed to learn until I wrote Novel 01 is pacing. Most people are lazy in life, and overcoming that bad practice does require discipline, self-respect, and a willingness to sacrifice many things. However, I won’t sacrifice much more than I have to write Novel 02. I’ve done enough writing work to where I’ll be good to write when I’m ready. Recreationally, however…

[Tripping On…] Volunteer Opportunity Available

Last week, I did a rudimentary search for volunteer opportunities and found something that seemed interesting in an altruistic perspective that I could appreciate. I applied and today we had a 15-minute phone call about the position. I said that I am looking to volunteer to practice my skills after having been disabled for two years and in exchange I’m willing to help with whatever efforts might be open. This could be a good exchange.
