I work on all major holidays. Always do. Comes with my line of employment since I cater to people so that they may go away on vacations. So this week is pretty busy and tomorrow promises to be a bit busier. Not that I’m complaining. At least not when it comes to the 4th of July (aside from dodging the dang parade that shuts down various streets in my neighborhood for half a day), though Christmas and Thanksgiving gets a bit more chaotic, partly due to the weather conditions and a sharp increase in demand.
More business equals more pay, and I’ve been needing to replenish my savings lately. Works out all the way around.
This entire month is looking fairly busy, so that’s nice. New business has been coming my way too, and I’ve began accepting new clients once again after taking a few months break to stick with those I’m already familiar with. No need to advertise much these days since most business comes by way of word of mouth. Which I’m grateful for. One of the perks of being at it this long and having built a solid reputation for being reliable.
Not going to state here what I do for a living, though undoubtedly its been mentioned elsewhere on the blog and I’m certain I’ve mentioned it in past youtube videos. Note: it’s a legal enterprise, for anyone who’s curious. ha
What else? Worked out by myself today, including weight-lifting. Much as I used to loathe sweating I’m now growing accustomed to it to the point where I don’t feel productive unless I leave the gym reasonably well-soaked. Shows me I’m actually getting somewhere and not wasting my time. The endorphins are a godsend as well. I do believe exercise is helping a great deal in getting my mind right after all the stress of the last year or two.
Life’s pretty uneventful currently. Just trying to take it easy and avoid unnecessary drama and bullshit. My best guyfriend stopped by today to take my bike to get its tires aired up and helped fix something in my shower. Nice dude. Very helpful man. He intends to grill out at some point this weekend and will invite a couple of us over, and one of these days he and his friend want to visit an antique car show and have asked me to come along. Something to get me out of this apartment, so I’m game.
Played pool with a man a couple nights ago who seemed to enjoy my company. Might see him around in the future. Last night I chatted with a Texan up here visiting family and we discussed the people of this state and their quirks and what industries rule around these parts. Nice to talk with someone not born and raised here for a change of pace. Though I’m just mingling, only open to friendship and acquaintances and nothing more at this juncture.
Not been doing much on youtube lately. I see a few of the so-called “MGTOWs” have come back around with their insults, aiming to bait me into arguments with them on my channel, per their norm. Interacted a little and then walked away. No point dealing much with that crowd. It’s the same old scene since I first laid eyes on it 3 years back. Never changes, never improves, never ceases to be a hatefest. Weird online movement. I’d rather see men actually find something productive to do with themselves other than sitting around bitching endlessly about women, but that’s their prerogative and they’re bullheaded about staying that course. *shrugs* Very odd bunch. But ah well. They’ll do what they wish, and I’ll keep moving along as I’ve been doing. No good comes from feuding with the vast majority of them.
Otherwise did a little cleaning around here today between appointments. Needing to clear out my livingroom so that I can exercise at home as well. But it’s a small, narrow space that’s tricky to get in order when I’ve acquired so much stuff over time. Cleared some out today, so that’s something. About to take a shower and relax for a while before heading back out to my night appointment and then on to whatever else.
