2019.12.05 Update

And to no one’s surprise, I am once again late wit hthe Update. Sometimes I wonder if it would make more sence to turn Thursday into Update day, so that I’m on time, but paert of me- the paert that knows me- tells me that it will juist end up being me writing the same damn thing every friday havign completely forgot to write it the night before.

I also wonder why I continue these at all. These past few weeks there hasnt’ been much to talk about, much in part- I suspect- because I’m regularly interacting with a lot of you in the Discord. By the time I’m witing it here it really doesn’t register as havign been something new or interesting.

And, really, there aren’t many of you reading this anyway.

I’m sure you’d much rather have me writing the next chapter than tellign you how behind I am because I foolishly took a break t ospend some time with Menoly and ended up with no time left to write.

The recent release of Halo on PC isn’t helping, nor is my recent return into Warframe, but I’m more tired of being behind than you are of hearing me mention I’m behind- and I’m sure you’re right sick of it by now- so I’m trying my damndest to remain focused on my work.

I suppose that is somethign new. It’s just a resolution at the moment, but progress is progress.

Probably more realistic than waking up an extra hour early- and going to bed an extra two early- to go on a walk/run/jog/thing every morning. That’s just not going to happen, no matter how many times I try to start doing it again.

To help with this new resolution, I’m going to write down my work schedule here- so that it’s both written down somewhere and so that if anyone cares to you can call me out on not following it so I get back to work.

What I’m listing below will not include anything else I may be doing regularly, but it should help me know where i stand for this job- which, really, should help me take everything more seriously. I just need to keep reminding myself that this is, in fact, a job and I am, technically a professional- so I can feel good about being on track and like a massive shithead- and not in the Tayuya affectionate way- when I’m not.

You know, it actually feels really good to have that written down. So good, in fact, I took a break to print it out so that I can’t neglect to check this post later- and, you know, grab a bowl of icecream and a large glass of the cheapest red wine I have in the cabinet- hopefully it helps.

Huh, I guess these are good for something still.

But with that covered I don’t really have anything else to say.

Until I next have your attention,
