Hey all, long time no see (matter of speech).

How are you guys doing? I've been doing very well myself.

I've disappeared off the face of DW and lj, once again, huh? Since announcing I was starting a new adventure with coaching and my health/physical health.

It's still an absolute work in progress. I haven't been able to really connect with anyone yet. Not quite. And I have a challenge I wanna start October 2nd. I actually have 3 people but one of them is going to the gym regularly and the second one doesn't seem to know what she wants (but it's a money thing mostly) and the third one is actually excited to start.

It's hard mainly because I'm in introvert, shy, don't know how to approach people and such and I have to talk about myself a lot, not trying to sell my products but also talk about them and what they're doing for me and new products and programs coming out. Hard work.

And I gotta do personal development. To get out of my shell, my comfort zone, get an easier approach, better myself in my posts, to attract people and have them join in and, possibly, sign up as well.

It's life changing, really. It takes time and, honestly, I didn't put enough energy into my peersonal development and well, everything's affected. But I added new people and I try to connect with them but I also still clueless on how to approach them after adding.

Yesterday, there was a big Beachbody event that I participated in. I am soooooo happy I did. I got to hear other coaches stories. Top coaches. I got to have some sort of training on Facebook and I got to do a workout with one of the trainers from the platform we have with all the programs to workout. It was intense and really nice. All workouts are intense though but... yeah...

I've been spending half my time in the Beachbody world, so to speak, and basically left everything else aside. Work excluded, of course because I can't forget about that but yeah.

In the beginnings, and a lot of the time, I do have to spend it on my business, because that's what it is. I mean, if I am successful and all, I can get paid for the work I'm doing, for helping people. I could generate a really nice revenue and stuff but I gotta work at it, put all the effort needed (and more) and I gotta sacrifice a few things in order to make that business work.

But I don't wanna forget on the other things and I have been wanting to come back on here for a while but didn't.

Forgive me? ;) :p

Not even sure what to tag this entry with...

Because I’m in a list-making mood and why not?

For a number of reasons, it occurred to me I’ve never done a comprehensive list of all my bandoms. I post music-related stuff fairly often, especially when I’m in SHINY NEW BAND, BUY ALL THE THINGS mode, as I am now. Still, it is very difficult to narrow my faves down to 10. I have my All-Time Favorites, which don’t change, and I’m pretty sure everyone knows what they are. (If you don’t, you’re about to.) There are four of them, so my Top 5 are those plus the New Shiny.

But what about the rest of them? My “favorites” on a lower tier than my All-Time Faves, music I really love but not on obsession-level anymore? I’m talking about bands I’ve probably seen live once or twice, that I have all or most of their albums, former BUY ALL THE THINGS artists that have since been shuffled down to my regular rotation. For now, I’m not including solo artists or bands I just *kinda* like but haven’t formed a strong emotional attachment to, or bands that I’ve shelved for later because I know I’d be totally obsessed if I looked them up properly. (This shelf is necessary. You guys know how I get when I have a new obsession. That's a year-long commitment or longer, depending on how many albums they have out by the time I find them.)

This is going to be a three-parter. “5 favorite songs” are the first ones that occur to me, because it is never just five songs. I’m not listing concert DVDs or documentaries unless they come with an accompanying audio disc.

Right--let’s do this!

ALL-TIME FAVORITES )

Name: [personal profile] scarlettina
Age: 55 (Good G-d, how did that happen?)
Location: Seattle, WA

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I’m a New York transplant living in Seattle with two cats and way too many books. I am creative and opinionated and still express myself like a native New Yorker, which makes some Seattleites uncomfortable despite my best efforts. I am a theater geek, a movie buff, a lover of tabletop and board games, a reader, a writer and a jeweler.

Top 5 fandoms: I’m a second-wave slash writer (second-wave as in: the first wave was in the early 1970s, the second in the mid-’80s to early ’90’s; everyone else came after) who hasn’t written fanfic in a while, but when I was doing that it was Star Trek, Starsky & Hutch and, more recently, Doctor Who (see my fanfic journal at [personal profile] scarlett_key). I have loved watching and discussing Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The X-Files, Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones, so many more. How do you pick just five?

I mostly post about: My personal life, which also tends to be sprinkled with bits about politics, the science fiction community, movies, theater, books, travel, cats, my family, writing and observations about life in general.

I rarely post about: sports, math, the giant hornbeam tree in front of my condo, jackalopes, and my collection of porcelain hands (yes, really).

My three last posts were about: I occasionally do the Friday Five so this morning’s post was answering last week’s questions, two particularly striking dreams, and discovering the pile of get-well cards I received when I was in the hospital last year.

How often do you post? I currently post about once a week, though I’m aiming for better.

How about commenting? I try to comment on at least half to two-thirds of the posts that I read.

I did NOT successfully talk myself out of buying that new TBM CD, in case you were wondering. It came in the mail last week and I have now listened to it five times in a row. Cannot pick a favorite song. Here is one of many:



So yep, I'm still in this hole, and not at all interesting in coming back out. I may or may not be knitting a black-and-purple wristband since I can't find any merch elsewhere. (Related: I have acquired yarn for most of your projects! I'll check back in a few weeks if I need more information. If you didn't raise your hand last time and still want a scarft/wristband/whatever, let me know!)

Goddess' Island

The last hope for the Goddess.



Toto, this doesn't quite seem like Kansas anymore. The island is far from the world you remember. This isn't your home, this isn't even Earth from as far as you can tell. But why? How did you get here? It seems the whims of an unknown and forgotten goddess has decided that she needed your help, dragging you from your world and timeline and placing you on an island that is about to die. Welcome to Goddess’ Island, where the world is ending and you are its savior.

The island is clouded mostly in darkness but there is a spot, a beautiful valley, that is still flourishing. That is where you find yourself when you wake up. But you’re not alone. There are others stuck on the island just like you and if you’re lucky the goddess didn't just steal you away, but friends and family you know as well. Let's also not forget the creature that you bond for life with. Best idea though? Make friends, powerful friends. Make sure there are people to watch your back because when the God attacks, you're going to need every little bit of help you can get.

Will you survive, or will you give up and break under the pressure? Apply and become one of the saviors that the Goddess is depending to keep her alive. Canon and original characters are welcomed. The game starts on September 16th, 2017. Go check out the Wanted Characters or Holds page and get your application in!


Game starts on September 16th. APPLY.
