November 2022 Update – Personal

John

My favorite singer, Gal Costa, died on Nov 9, 2022

I cannot think of any other singer who brings me such joy as Gal Costa. She was 77 years old. God bless her. I am glad I found her by accident many years ago. Her songs hit me differently when I knew she was alive. With her passing, my life will be slightly different. Her music solidified my personality and lifestyle. I often think about what I will listen to at the moment of my death. Gal Costa is the one.

My past blog posts that talk about Gal Costa

I am doing very well

I am sorry; I have slowed down with my blog update. I am still here. I still have the same job. I am still healthy. I haven’t changed much. I still believe a boring life is the best life. There is absolutely no drama in my life.

I lost 7 pounds last 2 months by eating less. I went from 162 lb down to 155 lb. The sole purpose of losing weight is so I can eat like a pig during the holiday season. Now I can gain several pounds and not feel bad about it. I call my diet “The Hunger Games”.

I’ve been spending a lot of time on video recording and editing. I don’t plan on becoming a YouTuber. it’s just fun playing with it.

Doing sit-ups can be bad for you. Very bad.

This is embarrassing, but I hope to save you from the months of suffering that I endured. I did some sit-ups last year, and it caused a blister on my buttock (in the awkward area). I thought it would go away, but it didn’t. The blister was there for several months and I didn’t know what to do. I couldn’t even examine it visually. The blister gradually became worse and more painful. Finally, before making a doctor’s appointment, I performed a minor procedure on my own. (detail skipped). My blind operation was a success. It took several days to get completely healed.

If this happened to me, this can happen to you. The blister is hard to manage because of where it’s located. If you are sexually active, such a blister can send a wrong impression about you. I don’t know if the blister leaves scars. And if you are not gutsy enough, you’ll have to take this to a doctor. I don’t even want to imagine how I was supposed to show this to a doctor… in missionary style? or doggie style? Terrifying…

There are better ways to work your abs. Do abdominal crunch. Avoid sit-ups (nonononono…).

Costco Shopping & Turkey Coming Up

Next week, I shall go to Costco for a turkey and some treats. I will bake a turkey alone as usual. I am invited to two places for Thanksgiving dinner. But Thanksgiving Day is also my holiday. I want to enjoy the holiday. I want to lie down, watch TV, take a nap, and do whatever I feel like. I shall gain 7 pounds during this holiday season.

Talk to you later!
