This, that, and the other thing.
I still haven’t heard about the job that I interviewed for. Maybe I asked for too much money, maybe they are so unorganized that no one has figured that my presence in their office and on their payroll would make things so much better. I need the work and would do it for significantly less money, but they asked me how much I wanted to make and I gave them a fair assessment.
I have been working on new music lately, you can hear it at http://soundcloud.com/stuartdmt - First three tracks are the newest and I think there is an album in the works. I’ve also started a new art project with the Moleskin notebook and the brand new box of 24 Crayola Crayons. Fun.
Also, I’m thinking of renaming this blog. Currently, the name “StuDu” is not sitting right with me. That’s the name my family called me when I was a little boy and sometimes even now when things get cheeky. When I started this blog it seemed funny and inconsequential. Now, though, I realize that this is one of my main outlets and I would like it to represent me in a little bit more grown up light. I’ll probably shift it over to “StuartDMT” soon. That seems to work for other locations and, well, I like it better than “StuDu.”
Still single and not even dating anyone. Maybe that is for the best. I would love to have someone in my life but it doesn’t seem to be in the cards right now. Anyway, with other aspects of my life being in such disarray, I suppose it doesn’t make sense to complicate it any more.
I’ve been spending quality time at the gym. I’m seeing some gains in muscle mass, but my belly won’t shrink and at this point the winter blue jeans might not fit. I wouldn’t mind if the thighs and butt were a bit tight, but the waist really needs to be smaller!
I went to my doctor for my quarterly checkup. Blood work looks good, the tiredness and sleep issues are, according to him, normal. Normal? BS. I asked about the anti-retroviral meds that are supposed to cause mitochondrial damage - I’m taking those, btw, and he just kind of went,”Yeah.” I’m thinking he figures it’s the cost of being HIV+. Ass. I convinced him to do a resistance test to see if there were other meds I could take that wouldn’t do so much damage and would still keep my numbers good. If there were another doctor in the area, I think I’d be all over it.
In the meantime, I’ll keep making drawings, taking pictures, recording music and looking for ways of making a living. Wouldn’t mind if someone went to one of my online stores and bought some stuff. I guess it’s time to up the ante there as well.
….and, still, if the Universe sees fit to bless me with a partner to have, hold, care for and be cared for by, I’d be mighty happy and grateful. Just sayin’.
