Time really flies! The classes are 2 hours and feel like 1. Only got a taste of Bachata last time, but it feels a lot more fluid moving side to side than forward to back.

Heartfulness is a form of meditation driven by centering awareness on your heart as a source of 'light,' relaxing from there, and consistently guiding your awareness back to that notion. It's especially nice way to fall into a meditative state or what feels like a lucid nap.

Subtitles still relevant, yeah?

Y'all serve chicken soup here? Almost done filing a recent cold as an immunity. 🤧 Wish I got it earlier last week.

Life

I've picked up meditation and salsa on Mondays. The salsa classes have nearly replaced my time on online apps just as a way of making a connection. A good metaphor shared with me: working out : martial arts :: dating apps : dancing. The preceeding actions augment the later one, but the practicality of the latter trumps/incorporates the elements of the former. Best of all, it's a blast learning the moves alone - when I have a dance partner who is in sync despite us both being beginners, that's the fun part. Practicing 'heartfulness' before hopping into salsa definitely helps to stay in the moment.

Reflections

1.

I think I have to take a step back from consuming more Kavanaugh/MeToo related content or friend posts. It's hard to not project onto generalized statements about men as a whole from women I care about. Hell, it permeates my gaming world. Sticking my head in the sand and letting my vote speak for itself is looking enticing.

2.

Don't have my journal since the move and I want to get this out of my head, so here:

I've been tutoring a friend of mine for free recently. They've been struggling to pass the test to become a certified K-6 teacher here for years. At this point, they've identified math as the pitfall come test day. I care a lot this person, and working with them I get the sense they aren't wasting my time with how they've been studying between work and heavy life matters. Their persistence in taking the test over 10 times over the past few years (it's no free examination mind you) reminds me of my grandma's grit.... My g-ma was an elementary school teacher for 30 plus years who valued education above many things. I feel as though I'm carrying on her legacy providing this to my friend who's been struggling to jump this hurdle they've committed to despite severe life stresses. We made this an indefinite endeavor until we're both confident in their mastery of these subjects. I'm excited to see this be the last examination taken.

Inktober

Any other hubskians participating? Any themes or learnings this year? This year I learned sketching out in pencil first isn't a sin. Excited to read what y'all's mediums and utensils are. Possibly sharing works?

    And I remembered, that for the first time, I showed a part of me to the broad public. Fully knowing what kind of consequences it could have.

Are you down to post a link to the interview? Asking for a friend... or two.

    I don't really think it's necessary to retell the story in live action

Definitely odd decision. Wanna see how many episodes they are looking to do. May be trying to forcefully erase the memory of that prior live action attempt. Knowing how faithfully they story-boarded chereography for fights based on distinct martial art styles, anxious to see how they flesh out VFX for the elements themselves as follow up is.

Here was the reference painting and original concept that informed the live-action still posted everywhere.

Moderate-to-heavily involved with junior Rotary in HS. Most of the Rotary members I interfaced with were stand up people active in the local community and further out of different backgrounds. Lots o' people on boards of schools, hospitals, etc. working in their own way to advocate for those who need it (at risk students is one example, hell the org's mission is to eradicate Polio).

Volunteer options were sick, too, like staffing the minor booths at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Anywho. Can confirm, it's a nice option.

    You're not part of "The Resistance".

    You do not get to unilaterally decide that it's your responsibility to be Secret President on behalf of this monster.

    You do not get to use your position to live out this weird spy thriller novel that you've written yourself into, and tell me that I should be grateful for it.

Spicy and cathartic. The idea they are setting themself up now makes me wonder where we are on Mueller's timeline.

Listening to some softer acoustic.

Looking forward to this month being better than the last is all. Happy there were friends who showed up for me when I called. This song has been on repeat throughout the weeks and it reminds me of them.

Here's one for those traveling to Hawaii.

In other life news:

Happy 1000th hubday ;)

r/Orlando has been cautiously optimistic about this. There were a couple WDW vs DL comparisons thrown around. Retroactive pay's implications on vacation was part of it.

I have a couple friends that have been there a while alongside past workers. Definitely going to hear from them. One's a long-time server, the other is an industrial engineer (her job is bad ass). The latter dictates park and specific ride hours based on data of park entrants, events, etc. I don't know/think this affects her, but definitely going to ask. The server makes good money after working there for a long ass time. Bound to hear from him anyways. Happy to share once it comes around.

Drank a couple beers, taking a hot shower, and planning on sleeping in. Have a good night/morning/day, Hubski.

    After a brief legal skirmish around Cohen's defense over whether attorney-client privilege protected the documents and taped recordings seized by the FBI, a judge ruled that less than 0.2% of the documents would be spared from FBI scrutiny.

I'd like to believe there's documentation in the 99.8% of 4 million documents. Probably some nice music playlists, too.
