Coming home from very lonely places, all of us go a little mad; whether from great personal success, or just an all-night drive, we are the sole survivors of a world no one else has ever seen.

Taking a brief break from drawing so i can type and post this blog. I didn’t record the drawing since I just wanted to get started. Setting up the webcam and the recording software would’ve just taken up more time I couldn't waste. Since I don’t have any drawing or gaming footage, I’ll at least place a still photo of the work in progress or something like that for the vid tomorrow. I’ll figure something out.
In the background, as I type this, I’m listening to a documentary on drawing. I just watched/listed to one on Escher.
This past week was quite productive so I’ll just get to the list.
What I got done:
Meditation (1x) during mid day break from work, later in the week.
Exercise (2X): Did this once on Sunday and the other time was after work.
Write a blog post
What I missed:
On the fence:
Healthy diet: I definitely consumed more than my usual 1 cup of coffee daily for a handful of days this week (Including today). I also had diet soda yesterday and some junk food which I usually try to steer clear from. Having said that, Everything else I ate was right on track as far as my dietary needs go. Not great but not terrible either.
Other activities unaccounted for that’s not on my original weekly productivity/wellness list:
I spent an hour of studying for an IT cert. for a couple of nights. This is the next goal on my list so I’m getting back in the habit of studying in a consistent manner.
For the forthcoming week:
I need improvement in the sleep department. I need to have a set bedtime to regulate my sleep patterns since it varies from one day to the next. This past week, I have been having difficulty waking up to a state of alertness and maintaining that state throughout the day. It became truly challenging during Thursday and Friday when the afternoon slump started earlier in the day and lingered around until I decided to drink some caffeinated soda.
Any progress is still progress. Moving forward as always.
I’ve too much swimming in my head right now but at the same time I am pretty much ready to get some sleep which means I should probably stop typing.
Have a great week and be well.
