Hi, I'm Raptron. I had a big year last year (had my first year being a truly single person since 2008, moved into a new apt with random roommates, facilitated new cat friendships, went to a bunch of weddings, took a lot of weekend trips, got super into spending too much money on tattoos, hit the job search for months, etc.). Now, I am in the final stages of negotiating a job offer at a new organization that will be a big change in just about every way. And otherwise my life progresses at its usual breakneck pace. The holidays are dead! Long live MY HOLIDAYS! 🎊 What's going on this month ⭐ 1/11-13: Friend visiting from out of town ⭐ 1/16-22: Visiting Mexico City (including ✨my birthday ✨ on 1/19~) ⭐ 1/30-2/2: Maybe YOLO to London to visit one of my besties ⭐ 2/3: Possibly starting a new job?? Gymnastics season is having a bit of a late start this year just because of how the meets are shaking out on the schedule. As it stands right now, I don't think my first one is until late February. There is a mock meet on Jan 11 that I am considering skipping because of my friend's visit, but idk, we'll see what happens. My focus in the gymnastics world is trying to get skills and routines ready for competition. My lifting gets a final peak before I transition to a new, lower intensity program to go alongside the ramp up of gymnastics season. I don't have any life-y resolutions right now or significant themes/trends I'm trying to pursue yet, so it's just going to be trying to save some money after the hemorrhage that was the holidays. 1. Lifting Test new bench 1RM Run 2 more weeks of weird double deadlift progression Pick a new program to run after CDMX (I have a couple ideas, but just need to settle on one) 2. Gymnastics Free hip circle drills 1x per week (trying to connect to a toe-on directly) Back handsprings 1x per week on whatever beam Floor routine with tumbling at least 1x per week 3. Living a life too full (and too broke) Only buy a breakfast food 1 work day/week Limit dinner out to 2x/week (when not traveling) Make 1-year late highlight video of the shenanigans from the 30th birthday scavenger hunt last year Plan out what the heck we're doing in Mexico City Maybe book that last minute trip to London, if you're actually doing it
