Status 6-23-15*


Fun was on my agenda. I enjoyed my walk down to the park and moving my body after a week or so of riding the sofa.

I’m feeling happy walking around the park with my morning Java – despite how HOT it is already.

I also had a lot of fun meeting up with some Voice Actor peeps I hadn’t seen for awhile, including Max, who did a great job with our Jack ‘O Lantern story from Cheryl on the Halloween episode last year. It was awesome to compare my first time going to the voice actor’s meetup, only ten months or so ago, and yesterday’s. I am on my way. Still far from saying it’s my profession, but I am a part of the community and on my path there as a voice actor. When I first went, I didn’t even feel worthy to try. I felt stupid to even want it. It took all of my courage to walk in the door of that restaurant and meet these folks. And then even more to ask about good teachers and coaches. Every day I feel I’m spinning my wheels, but then I look back and see how far I’ve actually come. It’s a good feeling.

On the irritating side of the coin, I had a computer hardware problem yesterday that delayed my episode writing and editing. We made an appointment today to get the computer looked at. Then, this a.m. *POOF* problem gone. WTF? So I’m weighing canceling the appointment or not. They won’t be able to diagnose if it isn’t happening, but I feel in my bones that once I cancel, it will return.


I am getting to let go of TOO MUCH DANG IMPATIENCE! I planned to work on my mic tests and finish up my placements and settings today. Guess what? Neighbor is doing construction on his roof! No chance to get a sound level with that going on. I think I’m having to fight one of my Queen of the Universe entitlement moments. The neighbors have every right to work on their roofs, but right now I feel like SCREAMING! That’s right BCs, the volcano of rage is alive and well. Breathe, breathe, breathe. It is even messing with my writing as I can barely think with the jackhammer action going next door. If I trusted my computer to NOT to actually be having some dang hardware issue, I’d take it elsewhere for writing triage.

Bottom line, a new episode is on it’s way, just don’t know how soon. Hope you have a peaceful day and that I can whoop up some Zen place in my heart, so I can at least enjoy giving Tiger the Cat his needed cat spa day.

Have a great day BCs!


How about you?

Please feel free to comment on MY statuses or add YOUR OWN thoughts, feelings, challenges, rants and raves on these pages too. That was one of the original purposes of why I posted on FB. I thought BCs might like to share about THEIR days. So if you have thoughts and feelings you’d like to share with the group, go ahead and put them here with your comments.

*Daily statuses are not part of the blog’s email notification. When you enter your email under where it says SUBSCRIBE TO POSTS VIA EMAIL, you will be notified of regular blog posts and when podcast episodes are released. I didn’t want to clog your inbox with my daily statuses. However, the automatic publicize feature will inform you on my show FB page, my AdventureLaurie twitter account, google+ on its show page, and Tumblr.

PS If you wish to sign up for email notification of blog postings and shows going live (not these status reports) enter your email where it says: “SUBSCRIBE TO POSTS VIA EMAIL”. This blog subscription widget is located to the right on computers and on some tablets, and below the posts on smart phones and on other types of tablets.

PSS, some BCs have asked me the difference between blog postings and status pages. Blog postings are where I develop a complete topic triggered by my status thoughts. Status thoughts are how my day went, what’s on my agenda, and how my body feels today – and not much editing or thought goes into them. That’s why I don’t clog up your email with them. 🙂

    thanks for the giggle friend!!! =-)
    I can literally hear you ranting about the darned neighbors.. ha ha I do the same stuff, yesterday when the pharmacist told me she couldn’t fill my rx because my ins was denying it!?!? I almost cried, literally.. uh.. hello?? seriously? you don’t even want the STUPID pills… argh, it was mostly the situation really… I called the ins company and it all worked out.. but STILL.. ha

    the x-ray says NOTHING is broken, or fractured! just that I have a bunion.. derp.. got it, I have a match on the other side too hee hee! the good news, is nothing life altering bad, the bad news.. ugh, just deal with it, tolerate as tolerable.. wth??!!?! yikes..

    still working thru ‘stuff’ with me (as Im surely to be my life’s entirety)

    ive REALLY REALLY been stepping out of the box lately, it’s foreign to me, yesterday was the first day i didn’t eat a salad for lunch since I worked at this place! interesting. LOL I had this breakfast meal that I never ate the day before and I was hungry for it, so It was my lunch since i do/did Denny’s Tuesdays my ‘late’ day.. it rocked as I dreamed it was going to, however.. it took me like 12 minutes to eat vs. the full half hour it takes to eat my hujass salad.. LOL.. then I was like.. uh…. wait.. now what do I do. ha.. I kind of just lazed around the rest of my lunch break..

    Today, I just had yogurt and fruit with uncooked oats in it.. it was left from yesterday, and I was going to eat it for dinner last night but my eyes were too big, and my dinner was fuller enough, actually more than, so after eating that, there was no room, so I ate it today.. in my head I worried, what if…. so I have stuff ‘in case’ doh… what if?? well then dumb ass you eat?!?!?! ha! im getting it friend.. I really am coming along.. I feel so great when I look at these things happening.. =-)

    looking into ME and how I FEEL and not eating addictively and recognizing when I am/want-to/about-to etc.. whoooohooo

    I also chewed WAY less gum yesterday….

    and the coffee/caffeine reduction, so far is going pretty okay too…

      Quiet outside today, so may run right into my recording space as soon as I’m done with this to work on my sound levels. Caffeine is something that has crept on me lately. Bad news, as it disrupts my sleep AND contributes to dry mouth, a no no in voice work. It sounds like you are making great progress in figuring out what and how much you want to eat. Don’t get worried if you have bumps in the road at this (I’ve had craters and mountains lately in my road). It is all about the learning, and not being knocked into compulsive behavior from hiccups and events that don’t go the way you’d (I’d) like. You got this gal! One step at a time. xoxoxoxoxoxo
