No Video Today, 67 Seconds of Plank

I’m not doing a video today because Denis is having a movie marathon in the living room, and the living room is the only plank-friendly spot in the house right now. The family room (in the basement) is, at present, full of the chairs that normally live in the dining room, the guest room is full of year-end finance stuff, and … yeah, I’m just gonna stop there.

This much I will say: I was pretty surprised how easy I found it to do the whole video-blogging thing. I say this not because I’m in any way camera-shy (I’m not; I’m our typical pretty-boy shutterbug in that regard, and my phone is arguably as clogged with ridiculous selfies as any 14-year-old’s) — it’s just that the spoken word isn’t necessarily my preferred medium.

Put concisely, writing gives me time to find all the words and stuff and arrange them in some fashion that more or less effectively resembles the ideas I’m trying to communicate.

I figured I’d have a bit harder a time doing that out loud, but it turns out that if I think about what I want to say for a bit before I say it, it kind of comes out okay (maybe that’s something I should remember for daily life :/).

That’s it for now. I’m on a bit of an uptick, which may or may not be a good thing. I’m not sure that I can tell the difference between feeling “normal” (for whatever that means) and the onset of mania. Then again, for me, I’m not entirely sure there is a difference. I’m doing my best to monitor and keep a lid on it. On the other hand, for the moment, it’s definitely better than being depressed.

Okay, that’s it for now. Ballet resumes Monday, Tuesday I go in for Supplemental Instruction Leader training, Wednesday there’s moar ballet! and therapy, Thursday we’re off to Connecticut to visit my parents, planking all the way, ha-ha-ha!
