Unlike Beck, please don't kill me

I'm feeling more positive; per the Beck reference, things are gonna change (I can feel it). Palpable progress was made. At least, shots were fired, bows were crossed, so to speak. 

I contacted via SMS, a girl I met earlier in the year.  For me, this is breakneck speed.  Best of all, I wasn't rebuffed or dismissed out of hand

I guess that old aphorism (attributable to Einstein) holds water: If you always do what you always do, you'll always get what you've always got.  And I'm looking for something better, more perdurant.  Make hey while the sun shines.

I took a daunting denovo situation, trying to court a younger woman in the #metoo age.  Hopefully, treating her like Goldilocks; id est, not too hard, not too soft, but just right in my pursuit.

Faint heart never won fair lady.

New Year, New Determination

With the arrival of a new year, new hopes spring like the wildflowers.I'm focused on three domains: physical/health, financial, societal/interpersonal.

Once upon a time, I exercised/weightlifted twice a week while the rest of the house was endeavoring with crafts.  I added a Saturday weightlifting session with my right-hand-man, bringing the total to 3 times per week.  The craft location went through a renovation, and we were kicked out; therefore, the semi-weekly weightlifting sessions were stopped.  Luckily I was facebook contacted b one of my long-time friends who stepped up in the lurch.  We now weightlift on Sundays. Sure, two days per week isn't ideal, but it's better than nothing.

I've been interested in stocks, bonds, etcetera almost all my life, from elementary school onward.  I'm, recently, really drawn to preferred stocks (good dividends, limited downside).

From the first time I attended a new support group, my eyes were drawn to one girl (young woman), I've just been lying low, scoping out the lay of the land.  But I feel that the period of passive recon is quickly drawing to a close.

Changes require adjustments

Once upon a time my brain injury residential home company used to have these company- wide craft days. However being uninterested in crafts, a cohort of other residents and I would go to the local adult centerwhere we'd lift weights.

I also added another day of weight lifting with my right-hand-man.

When the building where they were holding the craft extravaganzas went through renovations (at least I think that's the rationale), the craft days moved into the president of the company's garage and the gym excursions stopped.  However reconnecting with a friend from school, we weightlifted at the gym around the corner from my house. We have been making palpable progress on all fronts.

Two days of weekly weight training is adequate to maintain heretofore reached goals. More times would be better. Being brain injured, my brain needs constant muscle memory reminders.
