So, we went down to Anaheim Thursday after I got off of work. Doing Disneyland, and then three days at Wonder Con, I did a total of 70,641 steps. That’s a total of 31.19 miles. I don’t think that I’ve ever walked so much in my life. Plus I couldn’t eat all the food that I got, but the food trucks were great. Lots of Greek and Middle Eastern food. Yum!
We met Nichelle Nichols, who played Uhura in the original Star Trek series. First off, for a woman who’s 86, she looks amazing. I actually told her that she’s a treasure, and yes, I might of had a thing for her at one time. We even got her autograph for my dad’s birthday.
So, the event was exciting and we meet lots of cosplayers, and famous people, but it was also nice to have my buddy Ed with us(I love taking new people to these things). The biggest part was that plans are still getting put in place for my newest project. The Geekultural Experience, https://www.facebook.com/Geekuturalxp/, Twitter @geekulturalxp, Instagram @ geekultural. This part of my life was finally able to take off a bit more, plus we’ll be starting a podcast this weekend.
We’ll be planning on a better presentation for next year, and it will be awesome for when things can really be presented as the media company that I’m going for. We’ll start the business cards and t-shirts as well.
I was glad to come back home last night. I think that I’m glad to stay home for awhile. The last three weekends have been stays at hotels, and I’m just glad to be able to have my bed for the upcoming weekends. Life has been crazy, but at least I’ve been able to keep up with my weight loss. We had a scale in the hotel room this weekend, and I was down another pound and a half. I beat the first programmed goal, and am at 338.4. Four more pounds and I’ll be at my lowest since I was on Weight Watchers in 2013. There is no stopping me, and ninety-one and a half pounds, is almost the half way point to my ultimate goal weight.
I’m happy to report that some more of my friends have gotten behind the CK Project movement and have been losing weight. It feels great to be able to help be a tool for motivation, and it’s one of the reasons that I’ve started it. It’s even better to see that they are taking the steps to better care for themselves. I really want to see this movement take over and get more people invested in their own well being.
I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t being self gratified by all these various things that I’m doing. I mean, I’m a filmmaker, and Luckey Bom Films is were I want my professional life to go. Being a storyteller is one of the most amazing things that I’ve ever put my energy into. From the writing, to the directing, all the way to editing the movie, has been so much fun, and I will continue to do this for as long as I can.
The CK Project, has been my longest going project to date. I’ve had it going for seven years, on and off, but it’s really taken off in the last year, in a direction that I didn’t expect. The main focus started out as me using this as a way to hold myself accountable to the weight loss, and then it evolved into dealing with my personal struggles with depression, just to come full circle back to weight loss. It all remains apart of what the project is all about. A way for me to help other’s who struggle, or don’t see a way for them to get the help.
Being a geek is something I’ve embraced, more so over the last ten years than any other time. I was able to help start a local group called the Geeks of the IWV. It came about in a time where my friend’s lost their oldest son in a tragic accident, and this group was created to help pay tribute to his passions. I always wanted something more, a media group for myself, to share the passion of my geekiness, and that’s when this year we finally came up with The Geekultural Experience. This was the one thing that seemed to take the most time to actually develop because I want to do this right. Pod casting was just one of those things that interested me, and now I’m going to have the opportunity to have a forum to share this passion with others in a round table discussion.
Life has taken off, and I can’t wait to see where this journey is going. I’m currently recruiting new clients, and building my teams. Things are beautiful. This is the director and that’s a wrap.
