After the month of tragedy that was August, September is looking up. I started something awesome today, and I’ve been doing a week of Insanity because I’ve never done the program and wanted to know what the fuss was about. I was also tired of Pop Pilates. I love Cassey Ho and her videos, but I needed to change it up. I’ve been editing my novel. I’m just fixing errors right now and getting rid of all the fat (stuff I’ve said WAY too many times. I’m repetitive with my writing in case you didn’t know). School starts in 3 weeks, and so does my new shift at work. My brother is in high school math but still in middle school so he’ll be ahead in credits when he gets to high school next year. Pretty exciting. I don’t know how he did that because that’s what I wanted to do when I was in middle school. The Actor got an acting job! We don’t know all the specifics yet, but we will on the first day of classes. We know it involves several performances with a pay check for each. I can hear him working on the role in the living room right now. Living with an actor is interesting. They can be so many people so fully (if they’re good) and it’s a little like living with a crazy person hearing them trying out voices and learning the characters.
My mom found out today that her heart is perfect. The heart specialist had told us that she had no arrhythmias or any patterns that would explain the cardiac arrest she had a month ago, so it’s not a heart problem which is really nice to hear. It’s the same thing my uncle had. Just a random electrical thing where the signal from the brain messed up and the heart just stopped. As long as nothing else goes wrong it’s a very quick recovery, but my uncle had some intestinal problem and my mom had an allergic reaction so it’s been a little while longer than we’d all have liked. She’ll get her defibrillator put in next week and then we’ll be done with this nonsense. It’s a little concerning to me that we don’t know why the brain just fucked up because now it’s something my brother and I might be facing in our future, but there is no sense in worrying about it now.
Life is looking up! Things are happening, good things, and that’s good. This has been a summer filled with sadness, but it’s over and I am confident that the fall will be much better. So much good news! I hope that the autumn/new school year/work/whatever you’re doing is treating you well!
