Well, here we are, people: 2019. Another new year full of potential opportunities. And hopefully this year will be better than last year. Well except for the losing 80 pounds part.
In my last post, I mentioned that I did not spend this past Christmas alone like I did last year. Instead I went to my folks’ place which is about an hour away. Instead of gift cards, I got a pair of boots from my brother and I got a cat tree for my kittens from my folks who ordered it online from Chewy.com. Also my mother gave me a recipe book I made in elementary school. The first page was her recipe for pizza burgers. She figured it would come in handy since I’m living alone and I usually cook for myself.
Also while I was at my folks’ place, I found out something new about my mother’s cat Loki and it’s not the fact that he’s a little more fully grown up than he was when I was last there. I found out that “he” was actually a girl cat mainly because she was a little “chattier” than usual and for a girl cat, you know what that means, right?
The next night after work, I was able to put together the cat tree for my kittens and they seemed to enjoy it. Oh, yeah. I forgot to mention that I adopted two kittens during my break from producing content. One is named Scooby and the other one is named Cringer. So I guess this means I’m a crazy cat man again.
And of course, my nephews came over for New Year’s. I got to spend a few days with them and my brother playing video games on the PlayStation 3 while my brother played Fallout 76 on the PlayStation 4. We also watched It (the more recent one) and Venom (which was pretty good by the way). When they left on New Year’s Eve, my nephews decided to leave the PS3 with me so I can play some games too. I finally got the opportunity to get caught up on Red Dead Redemption which I started playing over two years ago. I don’t think I’m doing too bad for someone whose gaming experiences consisted of Nintendo and PS2. I might just be a gamer yet.
Other than that, I have been thinking about what to do for this year as far as content goes. As of right now, I have pretty much run out of ideas as far as the One Lone Cat. As a matter of fact, I was actually starting to think that doing the vlogs under my real name was a bad idea. I only did it because I wanted to go professional but the drama from the YouTube front the last couple of years changed all that.
As I continue to brainstorm how I want to do the podcast, I’ve been toying with the idea of “resurrecting” Blackcatloner. Since I’ve gotten older, it’s probably better that I go the podcast route after all. But I’m still stuck on what to do. I don’t know whether to do a small daily podcast or a once-a-week long podcast. I guess I’ll see what happens.
I hope I can maintain some degree of consistency this year as far as the site goes. I’ll try to post some more written diary stuff as the year goes on but other than that, that’s what been going on for me this past holiday season. And now that the long holiday season is over, it’s time to get back to business.
