Starting From Scratch
My resolutions for this year are pretty standard fare. I haven't done the regular gym thing in four months, so I've piled on a bit of weight. Just a bit, but enough for a few people, and my pants size, to notice. I started doing a quasi-low carb diet last week, and the effects are making themselves known. After a week of almost-zero rice, pasta and bread, my pants are getting looser.
The downside of this is the woozy feeling in my head. I wouldn't call it being cranky, more like my brain being replaced by a bowling ball. Also, it's tough finding things to eat. I go to the grocery store for the pre-packed salads, then head to KFC for a regular box of Fun Shots. Or, I go to Yoshinoya for its green salad with chicken strips, plus a bowl of chicken udon, though I don't eat the noodles. My greatest discovery, though, is the Dizon Farms fruit shake stand just outside the Galleria supermarket. At only P35 for 16-ounces, your cup gets filled at least half-way with three fruits of your choice, unlike other fruit shake stands that give you only a fourth cup of fruit.
I've got another external comics project coming in, though activity there won't start until later this year. Then there are some sideline projects still going on. They say that the Year of the Pig is good for Dogs, too, so I'm crossing my fingers that luck will stay with me a bit longer.
Work on the next graphic novel is moving at a turtle pace for now--I'm thinking of releasing it piecemeal via the web, so that people will simply log on to read. Since it'll be free, the audience is larger and wider. Apart from that advantage, the pressure on my system is conceivably lesser. It compromises my pro-graphic novel objective, but having a wide reader base is always good. Another possibility right there.
