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.

This is probably the latest time I’ve ever tried to upload the weekly vid and corresponding blog post. Video is saving in the background and it looks like it’s taking longer than usual. I might have to cancel out of it and restart the process. It didn’t help that I accidentally unplugged the powerstrip to my workstation which meant that I had to restart everything.
It’s just another reminder that I need to replace this computer. It didn’t really start showing its age until I had to use if for remote work.
Seriously, I need to shift the task of recording and editing to the beginning of the day every Saturday.
Back to the list.
Overall, I did better this week in terms of checking things off my task list.
I basically hit all my marks except for exercise. I might have to just get this out of the way on Sundays to at least get one workout in. My work week has been incredibly busy especially certain days. Working remotely definitely has its pros and cons. I’m glad I don’t have to commute but there are a lot of distractions at home.
I’ve had to reduce the quality of the video render to see if it would speed up the writing time but it doesn’t seem to help much. This might have something to do with my computer getting unplugged and files not saving properly.
I have been diligent and consistent on publishing a vid and a blog post every week since the beginning of the year. I’d hate to miss one because of technical issues.
Anyway, as mentioned, I managed to do everything else on the list that I try to do weekly (see below):
Maintain a healthy diet
Write a blog post
and have a bit of leisure time
Now if I can get a bit of workout in, I’m golden.
So tomorrow, I’m going to try and get that exercise session in. Because I know I’ll have the time. In doing so, I will at least ensure I’ll get one workout in. After that, I’d actually like to enjoy my day off and not spend it running around doing way too much.
I’m going to post this on the blog first since the video is still rendering away in the background.
I hope you all are doing alright.
