Been Super Busy....What Else is New?

Hey everyone~
So sorry I haven't been blogging as much as usual. Things have been crazy since my father passed away in June. I was in and out of work and working 100 hours a week to survive for low pay or no pay-seriously...welcome to the industry.
But I got a great illustration gig and have been writing a lot more. I also moved apartments and 'burbs of Lalaland so it's just been a question of time.
I have started back up with the ghost story a day for October. Check them out at www.thedailyghost2012.blogspot.com and am getting my novel, Four Seconds ready for publication so I can help raise money for the Bridge Rail Foundation.
I also am going to be doing the NaNoWriMo for RYUAN book two this Nov-next month.
Before any of that, I have to do my taxes! I am STILL waiting for 1099s and w2s...yup, it's October. I called the IRS and they said to just get it filed and I can always go back later. UGH. What a pain.
That said, I am doing the best that I can and if anyone wants to donate to the starving artist and writer who lost her dog, her father and all her money but owes Uncle Sam fund, please contact me....hahaha kidding-sort of. Okay, Tom Cruise, just buy my film and that will take care of it in one sweep? Lotto?
No? Whatever, actually I will be helping the economy because the interest is going to be like a small house payment in middle America by the time I am done.
That all said, I promise to get back to this blog soon.. I do, I really do!
Hope you are all awesome!
I'm just sayin'

"Who Would You Have Dinner With?"

In college and even some job applications that age old essay question always pops up: "Who would you have dinner with, dead or alive, if given the chance?"

In 10th grade, I answered Madonna because I thought she was strong, ambitious, smart and could do whatever she wanted. I admired her so much, and wanted to be like her in many ways-not a pop start-but I wanted to be like her spirit. I was living alone at the time (long story), and had really no one in my life to look up to and she was a role model to me.

In 12th grade we were asked the same question and again, I answered, Madonna for the same reasons. Although at this point I had moved in with my mother and my step-father, who hated me in high school. I was really close to my step-brother John, but still felt isolated and alone and Madonna symbolized someone who made it on her own, even though things were hard.

Throughout the years I have had many idols and of course that question has been asked of me in interviews and su…

I Love Flying--It's My Only Quiet Time

Drawing by me, Stephanie Olivieri may not be used without permission. THANKS
I have several trips coming up this spring and while I don't like the idea of winter weather while flying I do love flying and here is why.  1. No one can reach me while I'm on a plane so I get that alone time I so desperately need.  2. I get to do nothing and it's okay. It's okay that I'm not at the gym or doing squats at my house, it's okay that I'm not working on anything-I'm on a plane so yay, it's okay to do nothing.  3. It's soothing to my soul to be up in the clouds.  4. You can eat, drink, sleep, and watch TV/movies while getting to your destination.  5. I love to meet other people so while I'm not that annoying chatty seatmate, I do enjoy meeting others. 

AIRPORTS. I love them. I love everything about them. 
I know I'm strange, but I implore you to enjoy your next flight. Think about the fact that you are just there to relax and get to your next city, …

How to Be Healthy and Fit-Don't Listen To....

People often ask me about health & fitness because I was so involved in that industry for so many years and I still post about great programs, blogs, books, trainers, online classes, programs etc. (like Denise Austin-who was the first person I trained with in the late 80s to get certified, Michelle Bridges, Mari Winsor, Tracey Anderson and workouts like Barre3, The Bar Method, Zumba, etc).

Here is what I'm going to say.
1) Just because someone has starved themselves and lost a ton of weight, that does NOT make them an expert.
2) Just because someone runs or goes to the gym, that also doesn't make them an expert.
3) People who give sweeping advice like, 'be gluten free, be vegan, only eat 1000 calories a day' etc.. are not qualified to tell you, or anyone else how to be healthy.
4) Also, SKINNY does NOT equal healthy, this is a dangerous concept.

These are important things to remember.
If you want to lose weight or get healthier, please go to your fitness club and spe…
