Start Here: Battle Plan
I've been playing around with my social media accounts for a while now. I've changed my Facebook page and my Instagram to have something about the Silver Surfer in the title. So, I think that all of this begs the question, "what the heck am I doing?"
The most honest answer to this is--I don't really know. For the most part, I'm just having fun online. For some reason, I was walking across the parking lot at work and I decided that I should be uploading Silver Surfer themed YouTube videos because then, of course, Marvel would have to cast me as the Silver Surfer when he is inevitably integrated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe(MCU).
This made sense in some long dormant branch of my psyche; this was probably the part of my mind that I left behind when I was playing the lead in my high school play and singing Phantom of the Opera in my family room as a teenager.
Anyways, I was basically going to have a fitness Instagram based on the premise that I am getting in shape for the role. I would be posting about fitness and other things on this blog but I was going to let this blog be a little more random and fun.
I have since decided to have this whole thing be a fitness journey with sort of comic book related fun added to it...while letting the being in a movie thing sit way back on the back burner. Maybe I'll at least get a cameo if it really takes off.
I'm currently considering starting another Instagram in which I would upload 365 drawings of comic book characters. Each year I would draw a single character(obviously starting with Silver Surfer) 365 and upload the results. That's just an idea for fun for now. I don't know when I would have time to do that between the kids, family, work, and I'm still writing.
I'm hoping that the diet and exercising will help provide me with additional energy to juggle all of these different hobbies. Anyways, I'm sure that this is a pie in the sky thing but...I think it will be fun.
