Day 36,

My work day was rather productive. I'm caught up on 2 of 3 major components of my work, and I'm able to stay on top of these from now on. I have 2 weeks to get caught up on the third, then, it's about staying on the treadmill, which might be its own challenge.

I got home, ate, went to the bank, did groceries, went to the gym and did my kettlebell exercise. It was tiring, but I got through further and faster than the first time. Then, I did some Italian. Then, I charted out the chords for a new song idea in a different tuning, which was easy. Then, I practiced Cliffs of Dover on guitar. I will do some acting prep before going to bed tonight.

Tomorrow, I'm completing that energy session.

Yesterday was either an off day, or today is a mild recovery and is indicating h/c.

Day 38,

I think that MLS is start to kick on. I picked up my electric guitar on Thursday, and have been working on the Eric Johnson song Cliffs of Dover ever since. I was floppy and sloppy on Thursday night when I first tried. Now, it's Sunday, and I'm probably 80% complete in terms of playing clean, smooth, and on time. It's hard to set a metronome for some parts of the song, since there are sometimes quintets and a more liberal feel. My biggest weakness as a guitar player is playing to a beat; I've never really been in a band, so that wan't an issue. But I think it's improving.

I had my first acting class earlier today. There are exercises that I could do now, but there seems to be something stopping me from practicing on camera. I'll have to start small so that I can work on it.

It's also worth mentioning that I've been throwing caution to the wind, and not stopping after 4 loops. I don't really know how much I'm listening to it.

Day 39,

Acting is a strange and awkward thing for me right now; I turned on my camera and did a bit of work on it. I worked on some exercises that our coach gave up. I intent on doing it 3 more times between now and next Sunday. The video is about 15 minutes, and features me trying out emotions and actions on camera. It's something that's awkward, and I sort of dislike, probably up until the moment I'm relatively good at it.

This makes me realize that a character like Dexter is something truly special.

Guitar playing has gotten a little better, too. It's improving at a steady pace that I think could make me legendary if I keep this going for a year.

Day 40,

Gosh dang. I started recording myself acting out mini-scenarios on camera to try to improve my acting. The first one is really awkward, but there are some interesting moments in there. I think it's just about not thinking that what I'm doing is weird, and to totally buy into what I'm doing.

I'm not having feelings of cringe for seeing myself doing awkward things on camera. In fact, I'm pretty happy with myself, considering that it's my first time doing it.

Day 41,

I'm starting to think that I might run this sub all the way until New Year's Day. We'll see, but I feel as though gaining a breakthrough will not be worth much if it's during the last 30 days.

I woke up today at work, got ready and started my shift at 7:30 am. I was able to get my workload done, and I walked out at 3 pm. Drove home, and got there at 6pm. Did the second day of my exercise program, and added two exercises that target biceps. They work, because my biceps were popping right out while I was doing them. I think that they'll make my arms grow if I keep doing this.

I finished watching Season 1 for Dexter. Great acting from Dexter's character. I didn't do an acting session on camera today, because of the gym and guitar practice. I planned on doing it four times this week, so I can do it tomorrow for sure, and either Friday or Saturday.

Did a bunch of voice training during the car ride.

Day 42,

I missed a day yesterday, so I'm considering that day bunk and pushing my progress back by that much.
But, I had a good reason; I was invited to be an extra in a movie. And so, I had to leave from work (of which I was doing extra), pick up some clothes, drive downtown, and go to the holding area. The shooting process is very slow and arduous. I arrived in holding at 6 pm, and wrap was called at 4 am. They signed me out at 4:30 am. Made about 100$ from it. Once you do a few films, you can join the union and command higher wages/get placed better in the shot. I chatted with a young woman, and she said that she was making 40 CAD per hour from this shoot. That would make 400$ for the evening.

It's hilarious that there are so many gorgeous women who hang out as extras. I have two beautiful blondes' numbers after this night.

The one, I have a feeling that she's got a boyfriend; I creeped her name on Facebook, and there's a photo of her from a month ago kissing some guy. But, she never mentioned her, and I was in conversation with her for hours and hours. Surely, she must have caught on that I was interested. Maybe she wants to cheat, or already has been. Or, maybe the relationship fell apart in 30 days. Who knows. The two of us might be getting ice cream tomorrow; she might have lost interest in me in the second half of shooting (or she was getting tired).

The other one ... well, she already loves me. She's been sending texts to me on and off today. We've almost got a date set up, just need to get logistics in place.

I got home, showered, jumped into bed around 5 am, and used 'Hypersleep' for two hours, and slept in another 15-20 minutes and got out of bed at 7:30 am. It worked like a charm; I was able to get to work 45 minutes later than usual (I set my own schedule), and I was MORE productive. This was in combination with '5 Hour Energy'. It's almost 10 pm now, and I feel fine. Due to the paragraph below, I'm starting to feel a bit drained.

I've been having some irresistibly strong sex drive as of late. I just have to let the pressure off, or else I get intense sex urges and look up freaky shit on the internet.
