G and I are likely going to get a new weight machine and elliptical soon, but first we have to get rid  of the old ones.   Someone is coming to see the weight machine today, but the elliptical is a bigger issue, partly because it's heavy enough that we can't carry it down the stairs without risking our backs.    We also can't transport it easily.  The play it again sports might buy it if we can get it to them.

I'm hoping the new weight machine will make me use it more because it's a nicer machine in a lot of regards, but I also hold no disllusionment in how I opperate.

I've been also thinking of upgrading to a better DSLR that can also record movies and there's a good used one right now, but I can't seem to pull the trigger.

I've not been making videos, partly because of just things going on in life (the walk and taiko is just not letting me go), but also because video gaming started to become more of a priority for me.   I have two videos I really want to make, I just need to force myself to cut out some time for it.

I also have to get back to having lunch with friends  I don't see often enough.

I'm also hoping I'll carve out some time to get kayaking on my pond once this season.

I also have to dig more holes in my lawn beforce it gets too cold.

And I need to start running again on days that are not stupid hot.

In TDK I'm learning the 8th poomsae and I really like it so far.  I need some TDK pictures.

I am trying to get back to going to SoH regularly, espeically with Honk Fest coming up.

I've been toying with the idea of making a website advertising myself as a handpan player, just because it's good ambiance music and no one will ask me to play a specific song on it.   I don't know how good/bad and idea this would be.

My new therapist continues to be awesome.  She's also very enthusasitc about helping me.  Apparently she gets to give me homework she doesn't usually give out.

*waves hello*

I don't seem to comment much on people's LJ's lately, despite being one of the few people left in the universe who reads regularly...but I'm reading. :)

I don't have any good ideas for your elliptical stuff. But if you are interested in a novice photographer, I'd be interested in coming to take tkd photos of you sometime!  I have a dslr and would find it interesting to practice. :-)

It would be a long drive for you, but I would love some sparring photos, which currently sparring is at 7:05 on Fridays. We can talk more if you are still interested in traveling that far.

I suppose we could stage some stuff, but I'm really not sure what would look good for me to do.

Where is your TKD studio? I think of your house as a reasonable distance from my house and my work, so unless the studio is another 20-30 minutes from there, I'm willing to come by!

It's in Salem, NH, so yes, it's another 20 minutes up 93.

Oof, yeah, that's a bit further than I would just casually do...but photos of sparring do sound like fun. Hm. I think the main thing is that I'm not confident of my indoor speedy photography skills, so probably don't want to go that far away with a risk of none of the photos turning out good or interesting.

Maybe we should just get together and fool around with some indoors TKD photography for a bit, and then see how that goes? If it goes well then I could be up for visiting your studio some Friday. How long is the sparring lesson?

Sure, I think that makes a lot more sense to play with it first before you haul yourself all the way out there. Here is a I took of the black belt testing if that gives you an idea of the conditions.

Cool! When are you generally free? I am free most Tuesday nights, Thursday nights, Friday nights, and Saturday/Sunday late afternoon. Probably Tuesday/Thursday are the easiest for me.
Someone I am is waiting for my courageforgotten_aria on September 16th, 2016 08:24 pm (UTC)
Of those times, I am generally free Saturday afternoon (I have a gig tomorrow, however.) I'm free on the later side on Thursdays and Fridays (home about 8:30ish.)

How about next Friday around 8:30pm? Otherwise we'll have to wait until mid-October when I get back from my trip. :-) All my weekends are busy until then.

At least you'll be in you TKD gear already. ;-) Though hopefully you won't be too tired to continue to demo TKD things for photographs!

I change out of my uniform to drive. But sounds good!
Jadiajadia on September 16th, 2016 09:15 pm (UTC)
Cool, see you then!

I think making the handpan website is a cool idea - put it out there and see if there's interest.

Yay, kayaking!

Why do you want to dig holes in your lawn?

And I must second the enthusiastic approval of your icon -- baffled kitties for the win.

The pavers made a low spot that fills with water in the driveway. I need to install a trench drain at the edge (and did the hole in the lawn, because that's easier than the driveway.
