2018 Update

January 7, 2018

Whew, it’s been a while. Life, amirite? These 5+ months have been absolutely nuts. Huge changes. Huge new things going on. Let me update y’all.

First. Holy moly, I have lost a ton of weight. Like, 75 pounds. Check it:

Not bad for four months.

After plateauing for quite a while during 2017, I decided to ramp things up, taking my insulin sensitivity reading to the next level, and, after geeking out a bit with a friend, opting for extended fasting. I’m sure I’ll get around to talking more about the details. Point is, I’ve definitely blown bast some all-time thresholds, weight-wise.

Second. I got myself a part-time job at the Ralph Lauren outlet store in Lehi. Largely for the employee discount–as you can see from the above I basically need an entire new wardrobe! But I’m also liking it well enough, and honestly I could use the extra money to pay for number four below.

Third. I was in a show! For the first time in, like, 15 years, I auditioned for a part in a local community theater production, and got a significant role, with a solo, some trios, and a bunch of lines. I hope to devote a post to that experience in the near future too. For now, suffice it to say that I loved it even more than I’d anticipated–it really (re)awakened something in me. I’ve gotta do more.

Fourth. I’ve enrolled in cooking school(!). The idea occurred to me right around Thanksgiving. The more I thought about it, and the more I talked to other people about it, it kept seeming more right, and I didn’t find any reasons not to do it. So, yeah. Pretty big change there too. I’m certain I’ll write a ton more about that experience. I’m extremely excited for it. It starts this coming week.

Finally, fifth. I’m retiring from World of Warcraft raiding. I’ve spent the last 5 years raiding at a decent-to-sometimes-high level. It’s been an amazing road. In some ways pretty much a life saver. It takes a lot of time to raid well, though, and with these new directions I’m going, I just don’t think I’ll be able to devote enough time or mental bandwidth to it. I know I’ll put up a post about that here soon.

So there you have it. The short version of the last few months. A crazy, eventful time, really, as 2018 descends upon us. And now you know.
