Let’s get matters up to speed here. Uncovering Oklahoma has a new co-host, Sasha Denkinska. She’s super great. We’ve done an interview together at Groovy’s for the nightlife episode we’re still working on. I plan to wrap up that episode next week. There is a Halloween guide over at the Uncovering Oklahoma web site which includes an interview we did at Ultimate Terrors. I got some ideas in mind for the Uncovering Oklahoma web site that I’m going to run by the hosts. When I release the fifth episode, the whole site may get a new look and some new sections as we’ll be gunning for a sponsor. Yay! Wish me luck or better yet, tell your friends about the show.
Let’s see, what else. I’ve started work on a new book. It’s actually a non-fiction book. Yeah, I thought I would never write something serious, but hey, I thought I would never be doing the things that I’m currently doing in my life. The book is currently called, My Adventures While Making a Travel Show. As the title implies, it’s about the lessons I’ve learned, people I’ve met, and adventures I’ve had while producing the Uncovering Oklahoma series. One of my recent encounters was with a film crew that travels the country documenting, um, girls that have gone wild. It was a brief, but interesting, encounter. After meeting them, I realized that my crew totally needs name badges (or lanyards as Office Depot calls them), so I’ve created a design. I just need to get photos of everyone and get their thoughts on the ID’s design. I will also make a Film Crew t-shirt for myself that way I’ll have a more official appearance. I got the design made, but again, I want Ali and Sasha’s feedback before it’s finalized.
Now, I’m going to talk about something rather personal that got me a bit shaken up. I stumbled upon one of my ex-girlfriend’s, Carol Anne, on a dating site. We had actually meet online about a year ago on another site. I didn’t recognize her at first until I started reading her profile. I had looked at the pictures first, saw that she was cute and had a TARDIS cake, so I was like, sweet, and then I jumped back to her profile to read about her before sending her a message. When I saw the part about her job, it hit me. It shook me up a bit when I realized it was her. I’ve totally moved on from her obviously, but it was still weird. I am glad she broke up with me because in the whole grand scheme of things, I wouldn’t be the person I am today if we were still together. For starters, I wouldn’t be doing Uncovering Oklahoma and I love making that show. I also wouldn’t have learned the things I’ve learned, I wouldn’t have explored as much as I have in life, and I wouldn’t be as more willing to try new things as I am now.
However, I did drop her a friendly hello and a thank you. I’m not sure if she’ll respond, but I feel a bit better just saying something to her as it had been like a year. I really should also say something to another ex of mine, Kim, but I want to have someone special in my life first. We had a rather rough falling out. I hate having burnt brides around me.
And now for some family news. My Mom went to her cancer treatment center and there were no signs of her cancer. There’s a bunch of other family stuff going on, but it’s all talk right now. My sister recently moved out to her own apartment. About a week ago, some kids broke into her apartment and stole random things that they would grab. As she says, it’s going to be easier to buy her stuff for for Christmas.
Well, anyway, I think I pretty much got everyone up to speed. I’ve transferred to another store for my job. After a rocky start, the change has been working out great for me. It’s really helped with the burnout I’ve been having with work. I also got promoted to Full Time status, which means I now get paid time off.
I have to say, it’s awesome how life has been working out for me.
