18th May 2013 – I had an urge to listen to 10538 by ELO and Last Train to London came on after it and as it’s a bit funky, I couldn’t stop myself from getting up to dance.
Well, after that I was in the mood for some cheesy disco pop, so I searched Spotify for ABBA (OMG… I know) I boogied on down to Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (during the extended instrumental bit near the end, which I don’t remember ever hearing before, I spontaneously morphed into the Thriller Dance and it made me laugh a lot) and Super Trouper.
Then, I went slightly more up to date and danced to Things Can Only Get Better by D: Ream… twice
Finally, to top it all off, I busted some moves to Groove is in Heart by Deee Lite… I had forgotten that crazy early nineties dance (it looked like a marionette on speed ;D) but it soon came flooding back… to think that we actually did that dance in public ;o
I’m actually pretty good at it. I used to wonder if I’m just really unobservant, as things can go on all around me, and I might not even notice a thing, if I’m fully engrossed in something. Now, I just realize that it’s because I’m able to easily engage and stay focused on whatever task it at hand. So, I’ve given myself permission to NOT be a “multi-tasker. I never was that good at it. I’m better at focusing my all on the “one thing”, and then moving on to the next. I get more accomplished, and accomplish it better that way.
In my earlier days, my voice was once used in a hot dog commercial, by a small cable company, for the hot dog place I worked for back then. My voice sounded young, so they liked it. Anyway, I like acting…but, don’t have that much time…so I figured…a 30 second commercial might be doable, right? lol..sounds fun, anyway.

This month has been a bit more challenging than last (no surprise-going after what I really want is something that really scares me). I started out well and have made a little bit of progress on some musical goals that I hadn’t touched in a long, long time. I’ve practiced a touch more and have kept working out and eating better (some weeks more so than others), but I can’t really say that I have applied myself the way that I want to. I missed yoga one week and have not spent as much time meditating or engaging in relaxation. I’ve neglected my sleep schedule and vitamin regimen. While I’ve not had a huge surge in anxiety because of it, I haven’t been as energetic, focused and productive. My energy levels this week were just dragging.
Time to recommit to my goals for the month. I can do much better than this. There are 13 days left in the month, I can kick this into higher gear!
