It’s been a wild few months. Here are the three major things that have happened since I last updated.
I became a regular live news reader at the place I volunteer. So now I read books and the news. It’s great fun! And if you or someone you know have vision issues that makes reading more difficult, check this place out: rtbs.org.
I wrote a book. It’s not ready to be published yet, seeing as I only have a completed first draft. I will update when it’s ready to be published!
You’ll notice there’s a new page on here entitled The First Page. That’s my podcast! It began airing this week and I’m very excited about it! I also now realize why podcasts frequently have staff. It’s a ton of work, but it’s definitely worth it!
Oh, 2018, what can I say about you? You’ve not been a particularly good year, but you definitely haven’t been the worst year. I’ve learned a lot this year, and as cheesy as it sounds, I’ve definitely grown as a person. I’ve learned so much about myself. I’ve stepped up and taken ownership of my life. It’s been a scary, exhausting experience, but something that needed to happen.
I’m looking forward to 2019. I have plans for this blog. I have plans for my life. I have plans to drink a ton of coffee.
You may notice a few changes to this site. I’ll be documenting my jigsaw puzzles, and I’ll be keeping a daily log as I try my hand at making a temperature blanket. I know that every year I make the pronouncement that I’m going to keep this blog more up to date, but this time I actually have a plan. Crazy, right?
Finally, we’ve been talking about it for years, and have finally tried it. We have a podcast! Tom & Malia Have A Podcast. That’s right, the Boy has a name, and it’s only taken me almost five years to reveal it. There’s only one episode, so far, and I know it’s a bit rough. It’s fifteen minutes of us talking about the new Aquaman movie, and because I’m easily distracted, Spiderverse comes up as well. This will be a learning experience, but should be a fun journey.
And that’s about it for now. It’s almost time for the annual New Year’s Eve Diablo 3 gaming session.
I realize that I haven’t updated in a while, but that doesn’t mean life has been boring. In this episode, I talk about how I ended up in the ER, realizing I’m probably too old for crazy road trips, X-Men, and old timey letters. Fun will be had by all! The following link will take you to the episode:
I considered titling this post What have I done????, but I felt that might come across as lacking in confidence, and apparently that’s a bad thing when you’re starting something new.
I’ve started a podcast. I just released the second episode today. I’m not gonna lie and say it’s the greatest thing out there, but I think it’s a little bit entertaining. It’s available on iTunes and Google Play (so you should be able to pull it up on any podcast app like Podcast Republic) under the title Any Second Now. You can also access it here: Any Second Now. I’d appreciate anyone taking the 20-ish minutes out of their day to go and listen to it and subscribe. I know the first few episodes may be a bit rough around the edges, but it’s only going to get better!
