Changes to Move On…

Wednesday, November 23, 2016

I drew two pages today, and around 4pm, the Cox guy came to check my TV Box. He gave me another new box, in which he states is even newer than the new box I got two or three months ago. But it was still the same issue. IFC and Sundance indie wouldn’t come on my TV anymore. So, he called his office, and the person said that Cox made changes to the movie channels recently, and IFC and Sundance were transferred to the Essential movie package, which is a bigger package. I am on the startup movie package, which is simple but it includes independent channels, and it is enough movies for me to watch. But, now, I have two indie channels less, due to their weird sudden changes. Oh, well. I guess I will be busy working on my graphic novel and going on hiking meetups. But, what a mess! Maybe this is just the change I am looking for…out with the old and moving forward with the new, whatever is coming into my life next.

Nutcracker Village and Festive Holiday Events


Saturday, November 19, 2016

Around noon, actually 12:12pm, I decided to drive to the town center by my house to check out the Nutcracker Village event. They are promoting local young dancers for holiday events and shows. Some were kids, and a few were adults performing at the UCI theatre. After browsing the booths, I decided to do a couple of videos until my iphone’s battery went low. But I got enough videos and snapshots. I checked out the new boutique, Nectar, which has bohemian fashions. It looks like a store I am likely to shop at. I also tried some samples at the booths, such as GNC and Cha for Tea. There was a coloring table for the kids. I noticed that Cha for Tea restaurant went through a remodeling phase recently, and they don’t serve food anymore. Now, they mostly serve drinks and snacks. Many stores and restaurants are going through many changes.

At 3:33pm, I was on the internet again, blogging and checking out different sites, like, which is another social network site, but it doesn’t have censorship, for all the people who are already sick of Facebook’s spying . I ate my lunch, which included raw vegan oatmeal, from the oats I soaked in water last night. This morning, I poured out the water, and I enjoyed a bowl for breakfast, along with mixed nuts topping, homemade sunflower seed power, and cinnamon power. And, this autumn, I am enjoying a cup of hot cacao with a vegan marshmallow. It just feels festive and fun for the holidays.

Now, I am recharging my iphone so that I can upload my videos.
