Seriously - I want to know.
It was back in January that I posted a blog called Blog? What Blog? and tried to explain why I'm not posting nearly as often as I used to (boredom) and, with weeks off from work again, I'm back in that same situation.
I would love to spend this time off working on my blog - I'd love a reason to find an actual web designer to help me make it feel more "real" and actually start giving it more attention - but ... I really don't do anything blog worthy any more. It's kind of a bummer. (Did you notice, though, that I finally added links to Pintrest and Facebook and all that fun stuff?!)
I've been told that people like the simple blog posts that are just about my daily life - and I can see how that would have been true when I still lived in the jungle - but I can't see how anyone would want to read about how I wake up, watch a few hours of Dr. Phil reruns, do a bit of yoga, message Kathy randomly throughout the day, possibly take Luna out for a long walk, go to town if I have errands to run, and wait for dinner time so I can either cook or go out to get something to eat.
Having Kathy and Jo Ellen here was awesome - exhausting because, like being at work, I was basically "entertaining" people 24/7 for a week straight, and for an introvert, omg that takes a lot out of you - but it was awesome because I actually went out and did stuff that I normally wouldn't do on my own. And, obviously, I got to hang out with real, actual friends and not just island acquaintances - so that was awesome in itself.
And, uh, speaking of Kathy and Jo being here, only 74 people have read that post so far and... I'm not gonna lie, I'm a little insulted. When I have something to blog about - you better read it, damnit!!
(I say the same thing when people interrupt me when I'm talking - "Ya know, I don't speak much, so when I DO have something to say, you should really STFU and listen.")
HERE IS THE LINK - go read it.
I try to remember what I used to do when I lived in the States and had free time - but I guess I never really had much because I always worked two or three jobs and the most time I'd have off was a day or two unless I took a week off to actually go on a vacation...
I used to paint.... I'd love to do that again sometimes. All my paints, brushes, and canvasses are in a box at my parents house, though.
I used to go out and play disc golf with my friends... the only disc golf course I've seen in Belize was on the Hummingbird Highway not too far outside of Dangriga - that's not exactly a day trip from San Pedro unless you have money to fly there and back...
I used to go to shows and concerts.... those bands don't come here
I love my free time - I value my free time - I really, really do - and I wouldn't even say I'm bored most days - I just have nothing to blog about, and that's the "problem" I'm having, I guess.
Maybe it's time to start thinking about moving back to the mainland... as long as I'm able to get to the marina by 9am on days that my charters start, it doesn't really matter where I live, and there are so many more things to do there... Maybe Hopkins? I need to get back there for a visit...
While I ponder my life and options - here are some pretty pictures from my beautiful, peaceful, relaxing, un-blogworthy past few weeks at home...

Good sized day time crowd - I've only done Lobsterfest at night before and it's a totally different scene after 9pm

It was the night before the Super Moon
Just last week, I made my Telenovela debut on our islands first soap opera - La Isla Bonita (I was just an extra - I played a tourist getting on a boat!)
Filming that day was done at Victoria House:
It's kind of pretty here - you don't see a lot of grass around.
I was told that there will be a red carpet even at the Paradise movie theater on July 25th - I expect to be bombarded with autograph requests soon after the showing.
