Month In Review

Well... alright then that could of gone better. Things got off to a pretty demoralizing start with a work schedule from hell and then my baby laptops battery charger died.

All in all things didn't quite get off to the start I had planned. One thing I realized is that I was very focused on writing projects when I conceived of the whole list thing in particular with NA25. So when the lap top was no longer functional the whole thing kinda fell apart for me. I realize now that this was a mistake and that I need to be more flexible with what it is I plan to do. One laptop death should not derail this entire project and hopefully it won't happen again.

The other thing I need to do, and this one will be hard, is to clean and organize my house. I've come to realize that while I like a messy environment, and I feel comfortable in a messy environment it isn't at all conducive to getting things done and I want to get things done. Ergo some changes are going to have to be made and that is a biggie. However, if I get the list thing down and regimented then I'll be better at keeping up with it than when I was living free form. Once I do that I need to get myself a card table from somewhere and I should be good to go. It is something I need to do anyway. Once I clean up I know for a fact that my house will get cluttered again but I think I need to keep it far closer to a more managble level than it is right now. The reason for the card table is so that I can have a nice workspace for me to get things done on because craming everything onto two tv trays is kind of rediculous and I plan on starting clearing out room as soon as I finish this post. I won't get very far tonight because it is already midnight but I'll get somewhere and that is what's important.

This way I will be able to just pick up my baby lap top and physically move it into my work area and not have to worry about fucking around with things or getting overly distracted. I still definetly plan on doing lots of work and books a million and such but being compleatly unable to work at home is a sign that something is wrong so off we go with that.

Yeah just typing this on the desk top has not gone very well at all. God I get randomly distracted easily.

On the upside I did get several things done and what little of my weekly lists I did do have served their purpose.

I did get most of my Malifaux figures painted and I am pretty proud of some of those paint jobs if I do say so myself. I want to paint the rest up soon but I need to hit up tbs and pick up some green stuff to fill in the gaps. I just haven't really been over there at all this month, mostly because my baby lap top is dead and partly because some of the people in there make me want to kill myself. There is this one guy in paticular who I really want to shut down. However, arguing with him is like arguing with the internet it is tedious and pointless. Besides I really do have better things to do than bother with him.

I also tend to think more and more about little experimental fiction projects I want to sling around, disjointed scenes and lots of NA25 stuff and all of this is good! This is the main thing I wanted the project to do. So hopefully it will work out. This week's goal is to get massive amounts of things cleaned up and better sorted out. Once I do that I'll grab a card table and be on my way to a more productive, happier self.

I am not to disapointed in last month's failures. I've identified some problems, made some progress, and I had a good time. Now this month all there is to do, is to do better. Starting NOW!
