Goodness me, a lot has happened since I last posted an update. I have to wonder if I can manage to hook up a shock collar to a timer when I go so long after not posting.

For starters a little bit after my last post I managed to get my bike for the most part road worthy and working well. However the immediate day after I finished maintenance I wrecked the poor girl. Fortunately I didn't need hospital time(though I probably chipped a bone or two) and the bike is in repairable condition.  I also ended up with a chunk of road rash and plenty of bruises, but in the scheme of things I came out with very little damage.

The quick version of it is I let the clutch out too quickly at a stop when it was raining and dark out and lost traction on some bad pavement. I lost traction and met the pavement a couple times over the course of getting my bike off the road as she wasn't ridable after.

Either way I am hoping to fix her up soon and get riding soon, but all in time.

So off from the topic of the bike. Things with Chrystal have been going rather well. We've been doing rather well for each other and all in all I am in a rather happy place with the relationship. As a a random excerpt, she recently brought me some roses for no reason except just cause, completely out of the blue. I have to admit I probably teared up a little ;), it was rather quite sweet.

On the topic of my trip, I've been preparing as best I can for everything. Money is still rather tight in trying to get ready but its getting better bit by bit. I am still at my job working as a sys admin as Chrystal talked me into staying there through september. It's been both exciting but also stressful getting ready for everything. In reality though Is till feel like this trip is something that is essential as a thing that needs to happen in my life. Even if it is scary as all crapola.

I am still taking request for people who want me to visit while I'm on my way. Unfortunately it's looking like I will probably have to cut the canadian portion of my trip (sorry you guys, I don't have time to rush in a passport it looks like). However things are planned so far for NYC, NJ, MA, GA, FL, and possibly NC. Depending on how things go in Florida I may reroute the trip some time november-decemberish and also drop by and visit the west coast. So Don't assume that just cause your far away I can't visit :).

I've been having some thoughts recently about what contortion is doing in my life, and how much benefit and how much harm it is doing to me. I am also reaching a point that although I love doing performance, I have doubts on how well I would be able to consistently produce my own work and keep things fresh and exciting. I am much more suited to choosing a specific act or skill and working it through to a refined state.

Part of the meanderings of my mind have been that I know that I can't do performance forever, that eventually my body will either break, burn out, or simply for that matter become too old to be aesthetically pleasing in that role. I've been considering and even dabbled a bit into supporting myself with my skills as a psychic. I had some decent results with doing my readings, but I also want to get involved in possibly doing more energy work for people like cleansing area's and healing work. Problem is that gets into a touchy area of asking money for said skills, which overall tends to be frowned on as a practice. Not to mention I am a bit lost on where to even start building a clientelle.

For now though there doesn't seem to be any definite answers. But it will certainly be an adventure for it all to unfurl.

I should also mention that I am going to try posting more pictures up here over time, but we'll see how that goes. For now though I am going to get my ass to bed.

Goodnight everyone

Good Gravy I seriously need to get a routine down so I don't have these seemingly huge chunks in between my post.

So here is the quick quick version of whats going on in my life.

*In two weeks I'll be putting in my one month resignation where I currently work
*After much hard work this past weekend I managed to receive my motorcycle endorsement
*on the same note I also purchased my first bike, I'll be putting up a picture of my girl soon.
*I completely broke my bank account for a bit to do the above, but it was so so worth it.(and yes I have proper gear)
*unrelated to bike I have a new g/f officially now. Her name is Chrystal, she is a sweetheart. (for those wondering, It's a poly arrangement)
*My birthday went fantastic earlier thanks to many wonderful friends and Family.
*I updated the firmware on my phone to 3.0.

I think this summarizes my life pretty quickly and well. A few upcoming points
*Might have a performance in august doing a voudeville type thing
*another potential performance at Pagan Pride
*potentially working at Mich Ren Fest this year(hopefully).
*I have two hopeful places to crash during my interim before leaving mid-october. This is good.
*I need to downsize my stuff substantially, people who wish to help contact me.

Thats all for now folks. Maybe I'll quit being lazy soon and actually post something beyond just quick quick summaries.


BTW this is my new bike. <3


Thats all for now

My goodness, I think I am actually getting a post in before the full blown 2 week mark. I am going to take that as a sign of improvement and ignore the fact that this is going to just be another monster post.

Work:
Well To be honest things with work have been relatively quiet at work, much to my gratitude. Namely I would attribute it to the fact that my boss has been out of the office this week which has made things substantially more bearable and easy going.

On a spiritual note my modifications to my shields and filters has impacted things in a rather good way. I am able to withstand and deal with a lot more and overall I am holding my boundaries in ways that even a month or two ago I would have had a great deal of difficulty with. One positive thing I have to say about this place is that it’s fantastic for training those shielding muscles.

On a tech oriented note with this, the big change I made was the imagery I was using. Instead of going with the classic new age "colored light" or even using other people’s imagery. Instead I used a more bio/organic view using the shadow stuff that I sometimes see my energy body constructed of, and that made a rather huge difference. (for my geek/energy worker readers, think of it sort of as a combination between venom's symbiot and Alucards shadow stuff from hellsing.... yes I'm a geek what of it? :P)

Gypsy Alexa Tour 2009-???
I've noticed that I haven't made any official record as far as I can tell on LJ of this. Basically I am going to be leaving Michigan sometime around mid October after ConClave. This will almost definitely involve me leaving my current place of employment and surviving off from street performance and the like.

At first I'll be doing a solo trip to visit a number of people that I've needed to meet with for quite a while. In addition to this I'll also be doing some side trips to help do some outreach involving the Kherete project. Though that’s still rather quite tentative.

So far states that I'll be visit on the east coast version will be Vermont, New York, New Jersey, Maryland North Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. For those of you who read this and want me to drop by, speak up to get on the list. I'll need places to crash on the way too so feel free to speak up heh.

The travel down time I am giving is about a month to get all the way down to Florida to visit people. After I arrive in Florida I am thinking I'll probably spend a month down there. That will bring me to the time of ConFusion 2010. I'll be heading back up for that and then from there be heading out west with another friend and current roommate tentatively to do some traveling performance. The places currently marked for a likely visit out west are New Mexico, (possibly New Orleans), and Austin TX. Eventually I may swing out to visit Denver and AZ folks if they want the company.  These are just the tentative plans though. More to come on this as things develop.

Psychic Fair Readings
I've been rather pleased with how things have been going with the readings, and I'll probably sign up for at least a few more weekends to do shows. It's been a fantastic training ground and I have also recently started finally making a profit. So quite simply things are looking promising. They started off a bit slow on the first day, but I had a very definite feeling that it was to give me a chance to get use to how everything worked at the fair and know the people.

I will post upcoming fair dates and more info as I confirm them.

WorldCon 2009 dream goes poof
The title is pretty self explanatory. It's looking like making worldcon work isn't really going to happen sadly. I was really looking forward to working with K and seeing what could be made to make a touring group work. There is still a small chance things could change to allow for it to happen. At this very moment though hopes for making it happen at the moment are a bit dim.

Mich Ren Fair 2009
So far I've been toying with the idea of working Mich Ren fest this year. I am going to be putting in an application to Pendragons clothing and see if I can get in working with them. Some of the benefits being that it will be good training for working on my presentation skills and they do pay. The downside to this is I wouldn't be able to work the psychic fairs at the same time, but I do think it is a worthwhile trade. As with so many other things right now more news on this is TBA, but looking hopeful on this one.

Romance Update
Things have been rather eventful in this realm of things, and I would be remiss to not mention it. Things with Rhys have gone well, and I've considered pursuing something more serious with her. However I have a lot to sort out with this including the fact that I am leaving state for a decently long time. Although I was originally very cautious about things with her, she has grown on me over time.

As for things with Shiny, she has been rather busy. Though it is good busy it means that I haven't gotten to really talk to her much. This does make me sad, though with luck she'll be back online in another week or two. I would definitely like to hang out again some time, though arranging a meet up just now doesn't seem very feasible for a number of reasons. 

Finally and certainly not least K has been rather exceptionally busy. Plus her net has been acting up quite a bit. Things two combined have led to a good deal of distance which has been rather sad. Though I recently had the opportunity to introduce her to Second Life which she was rather quite amused with. It also gave us some much appreciated hang out time. I would definitely like to spend more time with her, but for now I'll take what I can get as she is generally super busy.

Bellybutton Piercing
So I've been giving some serious thought to my next bodymod. So far a bellybutton piercing is on the top of the list of what to get piercing next. What are peoples thoughts on this?(and yes I am doing it for myself, but I also like other peoples thoughts on the matter to help balance out my own views).

Well I think this wraps up this months bi-monthly update, here's hoping that I'll get another post up next week.
Till Then TTYAL
