Making friends in a hood is work, but totally worth it. Even if it’s something cheesy like going over to play ping pong or watching a game, the time to socialize and have a few drinks really helps because it’s unpredictable.
you may be thinking…how the fuck is watching a game unpredictable? Well ! It’s the conversation and tone of the night that makes it fun. I don’t recommend turning into a party animal, but you should average 1 night a week where you cut loose and act up with pals.
we moved last year and made most of our new friends at the community pool, but also made a few from our kids sports.
Humans love habits, but spice things up with a little bit of chaos my boy.
its an interesting concept. I think the lack of help we have makes my wife a little toxic on this -- i am working on solving that and maybe that will make this easier. also as the kids get a little older this will become easier.
nd of business do you run that leaves you with all this free time and you're apparently not passionate about it at all? Most business owners I know are passionate about what they do and have to fight for time to do anything else.
My typical schedule looks like this ( I am starting it with when I go to sleep for a specific reason, its part of my strategy)
8-9PM - Heading to sleep
4-5am - Wake Up
5-7AM- Depending on How I Feel Usually Going To Work. Trying to work some gym in there now. Sometimes I go back to sleep if I feel like it but I am always at work by around 7AM.
7-4PM - Work
4-6PM - Either work more or try to go to gym or go home and fuck off for a while
6-8PM - Getting kids ready for bed
I work 6-8 hours each weekend, then the rest of the day I am usually screwing around with my kids takign them to the mall or something.
I would say I am extremely passionate about work to the degree that I dont do much else, which I think is okay. What I am already starting to plan is things I may do in 10 years when I am done with what I am doing. I think I enjoy work and stay passionate about it. Its more home/personal life that is a thing.
Ya it's called burn out. Everyone is gonna get it real bad in this society.
Maybe. This doesnt feel like prior burn outs I have had though.
Post corona syndrome. Get in the gym.
Yeah Im going and trying to push myself to go more. It does help.
Do you like to cook? If so, start finding interesting, healthy recipes that compliment your weight loss and then cook them. Make your family eat them with you, especially your kids so they develop healthy eating habits.
I feel most people on this board are OCD on some level and cooking is one of more straightforward things that you can make as easy or as difficult as you like to satisfy that itch.
Pretty soon you'll get a pellet grill to start BBQ or a wok to try some of Lanx's sillier dishes. It quickly becomes quite consuming if you let it.
Not really. I like cooking steaks, sure. Maybe its something I could get back into more.
It happens quick. I feel like I blinked and all of a sudden im 3 years into a deep depression. Its good you are getting ahead of this - the longer it goes the harder to fix
I can totally see that. Months slide by fast. I think I Have had encounters with this before (even earlier stage) but havent gotten this far (which I still dont feel like Im that far along)
