Not much of a post today, obviously. To be honest, I got completely distracted by 5 Second Films when I should have been writing earlier this evening. Did you know that YouTube has a “shuffle playlist” option?
Anyway, it’s obviously Thanksgiving tomorrow (or today, when most of you are probably reading this). I’m not sure how much I’m going to be posting over the next few days (not that I’ve been posting much so far, but that’s beside the point. So enjoy the annual Dinosaur Holocaust with whatever form of friends, family, animals, plants, minerals, etc. you deem fit. I know I’ve got quite the full day ahead of me (no pun intended).
Like the title says, not much to say today. It’s Monday, I’m kinda tired, and I spent the entire weekend playing video games. So I’m not in a bad state overall. There’s a holiday this week, of course, which means multiple trips across town to visit various friends and family. I expect that will be tiring, so I’m kinda trying to bank as many spoons as possible. Luckily I get Friday off as well, so I’ll have a nice long weekend. Plenty of time to be productive. And by productive, I mean read and play video games. Should be fun.
No post today. I’m just too tired all around. I’m probably in the middle of a Funk, not that knowing that helps things at this point (it may in the future, but not right now). I want to do nothing more than sit around and play video games all day, but of course I can’t do that. Too many other responsibilities. So good night, I’m going to bed.
I don’t really have much to say right now. Work is work, life is life, and I’m still tired from the weekend. I have some things I might want to write about, but I’m just not feeling the drive or interest right now. But Hey, it’s pretty cold out! So at least there’s that. Or something.
I really do wish I had more down time to do the things I like (read: play video games), but that just doesn’t seem to be in the cards right now. Too much of my time is spoken for, and unless I want to stay up overly late, I’m not sure how to squeeze more free time out of my schedule. At least when I was working at Costco I had afternoons to myself.
Maybe I’m still just getting used to the new work load, even though it’s been three months. But it sure seems that even my free time in the evening and on weekends has been lacking. Maybe it’s just the big push I had before Mile Hi Con. I don’t know. All I know is I don’t feel like doing much besides sitting like a lump.
At least this malaise isn’t really translating into depression, I guess. Just fatigue. And it’s not like I’m any busier than I was when I was in grad school. So what’s different? I don’t know.
But hey, at least I’m still posting something, right?
Hey, guess what? I’m still tired! And still don’t have much to say! Yaaaay, me!
Seriously though, the weekend has left me pretty exhausted. I did at least have a good time at the event; court was long, yes, but it was entertaining and fun. The drive down wasn’t as draining as I had feared it would be, and I enjoyed the chance to see and catch up with old friends.
But today was still Monday. And I don’t really feel like doing much of anything tonight. So I’m not going to. Instead, I’ll putter around on the Internet, maybe play some video games with my girlfriend, then crawl into bed and hope tomorrow goes better.
It’s so nice to be able to enjoy Halloween this year. Last year, I was still working at Costco, and while I don’t remember specifics, I likely had to work early the next day. Kinda makes it hard to enjoy hanging out with friends when you have to be asleep by 9pm. But this year, thanks to my vastly-improved work situation, I actually have a weekend! And can stay up late!
Well, I have the option of staying up late. Whether I actually manage to is a different issue entirely.
So yeah, I’m kind of excited. It’s Friday! I don’t have anywhere to be tomorrow! I can finally have a weekend to sit like a lump and play video games until I pass out! Whee, Halloween!
I am kind of bummed we didn’t decorate or anything this year. I have fond memories of carving pumpkins as a kid and roasting the seeds in the oven. Somehow, though, I don’t imagine it’s as much fun when you have to be the one sorting through the squick for the tasty bits. But hey, I still get to go to a party! And by party, I mean hanging out with friends in a last-minute costume thrown together from stuff I already own.
…What? Don’t look at me like that. Last week was the big costuming push, and I think it turned out pretty well. I get to slack off if I want.
So have fun doing whatever it is you plan on getting up to tonight. I know I will!
Mile Hi Con was great. I had a good time with friends, caught up with some old ones, and saw a few interesting panels. But I’m exhausted. I’m not sure if it was the walking around in costume all day or staying up until midnight for the Rocky Horror Picture Show, but I’m beat. So this is all you get from me today. I’m still alive, I had fun, and I’m pretty sure there are pics of our costumes on Facebook.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I sleep need to go more some.
The night kind of got away from me, yet again. A variety of forces kept me from getting to the project I wanted to, and it’s making me feel kind of down. That’s not to say I didn’t get anything done, just that I didn’t make progress on things I needed to. So I think I’m just going to go to bed. My brain is starting to lie to me, and that’s a sure sign I need to do something to kick it out of the rut. And given how my options are either “work on project” or “get a good night’s sleep,” it’s probably better to do the latter. I just hope I still have enough time to finish what I need to, even if it means skipping practice this week.
I’m always conflicted about what to post when I don’t get around to it until later in the day. I feel silly posting a quick “no post today” note (which, ironically, is itself a post), but it does make me feel less guilty about effectively skipping a day. But at the same time, my ego doesn’t want to post anything too involved in case it gets missed by people who I imagine read it.
Long story short, I’ve had a Monday. Not enough sleep, canker sore from too much stress last week, and I’m just now feeling better enough to go to sleep. We’ll try again tomorrow.
No post today. Work was really mind-draining, so I didn’t get to it before practice. And now it’s late, and I don’t feel like it. Didn’t I have a buffer as recently as last week? Oh well…
