Song mood: Something to Talk About by Badly Drawn Boy. In the movie About a Boy, the song happens right when Will is in a pensive mood montage. He messed things up with his girlfriend and has spiraled into a depression. Then, in the middle of his walk about, he realizes that his friendship with Marcus is very important.
I’m still listening to Essays by George Orwell. I’m down to the last four hours. This collection started with the bigger essays and now is on the smaller pieces.
I’m looking into changing my diet. I’m even looking into becoming gluten-free for a time. That would be a drastic change. But if I feel better after trying it out for a day or two, the switch will be easy.
The other day, I bought sugar free chocolates. They were okay. I get an empty feeling when I eat them. Kind of like eating pork rinds, for some reason I just feel empty whenever I eat those.
Bundaberg’s diet ginger beer is actually good.
I’m actually making progress on the disappearance novel that I’m working on. I will just have to keep pushing myself on it. I imagine it will get easier. The scene with Erika Lund will be a little tough. Mainly because she’s not the star of the show. Eileen is. It will be different to write a scene were the detective isn’t the one driving the scene.
I switched to reading PD Jame’s Cover Her Face. I will go back to what I was reading before. A detective mystery is more of something I will read when I’m a bit stressed.
I think progress happens in the small steps. I’m going through this moment where I have to find myself. Once I find that one part of myself, everything else will fall into line. So I am making changes to the way I’m doing things.
