Decided to sleep today without the use of an alarm, still woke up after about 8 hours, still feeling kind of groggy. Think I’m going to have to go the whole weekend without it and see if I can’t catch up on some rest somewhere along the way. Today is another packed schedule, where I’ve got to do some prepping for Erin’s stream tonight (and our stream on Sunday tomorrow), some prepping for social plans tomorrow, lots of work, I’m done with the cleaning, and then people are coming over for the usual Friday night activities. Week’s almost over and I think if I looked at this week’s to-do list I’d be gobsmacked at just how much more I wanted to get done, but that happens sometimes. I think I’m going to bring a couple tasks with me into next week and otherwise try to start fresh with a new set of goals come Monday.

I’ve been trying to wake up every day this week to an alarm, because I have things I want to do and places I want to be, but I’ve also been dealing with some minor accomplishment anxiety and so I’m having a hard time going to bed every night because I feel like I have so much unfinished business. The end result is me staying up all night, resolving to have a short sleep, having the alarm go off, have Erin try to wake me up, me resisting, and then either feeling groggy all day or going back to sleep. Today I’m going already but I also had to have a caffeine boost, I’m still feeling only kind of half awake. But, I’m getting stuff done, I’m on the right path, maybe I’ll feel accomplished enough by the end of today to go to bed tonight without setting an alarm. Or maybe this is just how this week is going to go.

The Goodness

You know that feeling when you make a decision unsure of how it’ll turn out and then get immediately rewarded for making that decision? That’s where I’m at today. I decided after some deliberation that I couldn’t just ignore my streaming channel this week while I worked (for a few reasons which I won’t get into at this time) and so I decided to do some shorter, more relaxed, free-range streams this week. Tonight I broadcasted for just a few hours but it was some of the most I’ve had doing it in a long time. Lots of great people showed up, lots of hilarity and fun and good games and laughing so hard that there were tears in my eyes. So while I may have briefly second-guessed my decision as me just being lazy or selfish, I’m confident that it was right, and it’s given me the energy to do much more this week as a result.

Rainy Night

Posted: August 1, 2017 in Uncategorized

Already was looking like I wasn’t going to have time to do anything but work last night, but with tonight’s rain, I’ve got a lot more plans for this week that don’t really involve anything but the basics: Working, creativity, cleaning. I might try to do some streaming just out of the sense that I don’t feel right not doing it. But as it stands, I got a lot on my plate this week. So we’ll see. I think what I could do is just roll some of my plans into the streaming maybe, combine some activities and make my time that more efficient. As it stands, whereas I normally try to have a normal work-week’s worth of productivity planned, I’m looking more like non-stop doing of things every day this week for 24 hours a day. I’m through with the first day pretty much, and I’m hoping to get ahead of it a little bit, but I haven’t had this kind of mountain on top of me in a while. More blogs to come this week.

It’s Hot

Been dealing with technical problems for two weeks now. Last week it was the internet, and it seems to have largely worked itself out after having a technician come out and do…nothing really. The big thing is that it stopped raining, and that seems to have fixed the bad internet. But I guess it’s also been raining a bit as well….I don’t know. This week, the capture card’s been an absolute pain in the ass in ways I haven’t had to deal with before. So I may be making a small investment to pick a new one up next month just to forego all the problems that this thing causes me and also give us an extra capture card to leave in Erin’s room for her streams. And that would be nice as well. But for now, dear god it is hot and muggy in this room can we fast forward to October maybe would that be okay okay awesome thank you

Coming Down the Mountain

Posted: July 24, 2017 in Uncategorized

It’s odd to say this right now, because I’m looking at my to-do list and it’s technically LARGER than it has been in quite some time, but I think because there are some tasks that I’ll be putting back away after this week and getting that general list back down to its more usual size, I feel like, on this Monday morning, that I’m accomplishing big things and getting a lot done. I don’t think that’s really the case. I think this week I had some old things rear their heads and suddenly I’ve got a larger pile of things that need taking care of, but being able to quickly strike and bring that back down to its more manageable yet impossible size makes me feel like I’m getting things done. So hey, there you go. The secret to feeling accomplished is to take on even more things, then when you get back to status quo, you’ll feel like you’ve done a great thing.

Hi! I know that this blog still exists. Just haven’t had much time to do much with it lately. Been doing a lot of work both in the writing field and in the streaming. The average work day for me is somewhere between 12 and 14 hours. It sounds like a lot. I actually kind of enjoy it. That being said, I’m trying to unbury myself from all of that, exhume I suppose is the correct word. My goal is to start taking one day off a week, and I’m..not quite there yet, but I’m working on it. I’m still young, I can work. And doing what I want to do may not be the most lucrative in terms of work-per-hour right now, but the extra time is worth it to be doing what I want. So that’s that, there’s your update. Trying to eat right, working out an hour a day, that sort of thing. Being an adult. It rained today while I was out walking. It was refreshing.
