I keep leaving these for the last minute and I always end up regretting it. Maybe I need to move these to Wednesday or something. Commentaries on Sunday and Updates Wednesdays? Doesn’t sound too bad, we’ll just have to see if I manage to make it work.
If I miss the update next week it’s definitely because we’re witching to Wednesdays and not because I got distracted by something.
There isn’t a whole lot to cover this week- though I usually say that and end up rambling forever- but we’ll try to run through what we do have quickly so I can get to bed.
First, the Commentary for chapter 90 is up. I spend most of it being an asshole, so be aware. I will admit it’s probably undue but work these past few days has been absolute shit and even two glasses into my favorite wine I’m still in a piss-poor mood.
So if it is too asshole-ish [Is that possible?] then it’s most definitely my fault. Should have had something a bit stronger before writing it, evidently.
The good news is that I only have 20 labor hours left until that nightmare is over. Feel a bit bad for my employees because things are probably going to be pretty bumpy for a while- and they won’t have me taking the heat for everything anymore- but maybe I’m overestimating my worth and things are going to continue smoothly.
I’ll have to ask one of them how things went, if only to know for certain if I was indeed the source of all problems in the store. I will take a great amount of pleasure in hearing that people realized those problems were the damaged-controlled remnants of other people’s shit I was trying to correct.
If it does turn out that I was the main problem then I guess it’s a good thing I’m leaving and they’ll be better for it.
Regardless, it won’t be my problem soon.
Really, that was an attitude I was trying – and managed for 12 days- to avoid. I’ve been putting my all into my work like usual as if I’m not going to be gone in the next few days but I’ve now reached the point that I can’t even bring myself to care.
I can say that I know what it’s like to be some of the other managers, though. Who knew doing nothing and letting the employees do as they saw fit would be so easy? Really, the time flew by today as I shrugged at employee questions and told them to go for it. It didn’t’ go too badly either- except for dinner, which we never have enough people for on Sundays anyway- so maybe that was the secret I’ve been missing this whole time.
It kind of disturbed some of my employees, though, they weren’t too comfortable with me not working my ass off and stressing over everything.
Hmm, venting about work too much, let’s move on. It’s not going to be a problem by the thirty-first.
Actually, on a similar vein I have more or less secured a job. I was extended an offer dependent on the results of a drug test and a background test. I’ve never actually done drugs, so that should be fine, and my background should be clean- aside from a speeding ticket or two- which means I’m just waiting to learn the first day of my training.
Hopefully it’s not too far off or I’m going to have to find some temp work to make ends meet in the meantime. Meh, I can always do GrubHub or something for a week or two if I have too.
I have a feeling I’ve mentioned this already, too, so if that’s the case I apologize, Might have just been during a stream, though, I can’t really recall.
And speaking of streams, if you’ve missed any and want to check them out I do have them all- current up to Friday’s, I believe- up on Youtube.
That said, Sealkeeper’s updates are still pretty uncertain as I’ve lost my chapter lead. I’ll be posting chapter 91 soon and I’m about 20% done with 92 so we might be able to scrape by with weeklies still but no promises.
Not sure what’s happening with Warlock of Winterhold but I’ll figure that later. It does have less priority than that Sealkeeper one-shot, though, so be advised.
Think I’ve figured out the next Naruto story I’m doing, though. I have a lot of ideas I want to explore but oneof my more recent ones has really caught my favor. Haven’t seen anything else like it, either- though I am quite out of touch- so hopefully it’s original enouhg to be entertaining.
Work for that, however, probably won’t be until 2022 or so; plenty of time for me to lose interest.
And the Naruto fandom to die, I suppose. We’ll see.
No pictures today, mainly because I didn’t take any this morning in the good lighting, but we’ll have some next week. Their growth will look more impressive that way, too.
I’ll probably be making a discord soon where you guys can chat and ask me questions live(ish) without stopping by the stream, but I have to figure out how I want to set it up.
And, you know, find time to sink into another project.
Think that about does it for this update- though I probably missed something important I wanted to mention- so we’ll call it good here.
Until I next have your attention,
