This explains how my week went even more than you may realize. I thought this meme would already exist. If it does, I couldn’t find it, so I had to figure out how to make it myself. Used it quite a fair amount too.
As the title says, I ended the week in bad shape. I got home from work on Friday thinking I was doing okay. Had a little to eat and drink. Went into the bathroom and immediately had some trouble figuring out up from down. I noticed this was when my body also hit a sudden point of relaxation, but in a deflated kind of way. Big sign that I pushed myself too far and on too little sleep.
To be fair, the week started out right. I didn’t get a lot of sleep over the weekend since I saw ‘The Batman’ that Friday night and then had a wedding last Saturday. Both kept me up past midnight and tired me out. Sleeping in on Sunday didn’t work out because stuff was going on in the house. Still, I thought I had the right amount of energy after sleeping soundless for three nights straight. Then, I had two really bad nights and everything collapsed.
It was a combination of life drama that I can’t get into and the third quarter of the school year ending. That meant I was working hard and trying to fend off the other stuff, which didn’t seem to care I was at work. There were also meetings and errands and my shoulder was giving me trouble until Thursday. Let’s face it. I’m a total wreck lately, but I manage to put everything together when I need to.
Anyway, the wedding was a lot of fun. Great food and the music was fun to get gradually deafened by. I didn’t dance because that’s not my thing and I was stag. Loved seeing my friend get married and be happy. I realized I hadn’t worn a suit since my sister’s wedding in 2017 too. Not to this extent anyway. Overall, it was a Saturday very well spent and worth the last minute haircut.
What else is going on? I didn’t get to any writing because I was so busy. Think I designed a single character for ‘Phi Beta Files’. Finished the June posts and started in on July with August planned out too. May seem strange to schedule so far ahead, but I need to create something with words. I want to make progress on clearing the field for me to go crazy with the writing during the summer too. I’m going to use next Sunday to go over the next Darwin outline. I’d do it Saturday, but I think it’s my birthday.
As far as this weekend goes, my son has a lot to do because his third quarter ends next Friday. So, we have to study and finish projects. Hoping to go to a local comic/anime/cosplay convention and get video games in too. Both of us are burnt out, so it’s going to be a slog. I think he’s got a good amount of stuff figured out, but it’s going to be a challenge. End of the quarter is always hectic, so I guess it’s good that my chaos is already over. Means it’s only 1.5 weeks before Spring Break too. April is going to pass by so quickly. Not sure how I feel about that.
Wish I had some more interesting things to talk about. Slowly making my way through a recommended anime called ‘Fate/Stay Zero’. It’s okay, but not what I expected. The characters talk about philosophy a lot with minimal action. Realized that I was zoning out during the lengthy debates and still didn’t feel like I was missing anything. I have two other series from the franchise on my list, which I may try further down the road. I need a show with more action after this one. Might finally be time to rewatch ‘Outlaw Star’, but I may pass until I feel more rested.
I swear there was something else that happened this week. For some reason, I keep thinking I worked with Darwin, but I didn’t do anything more than put the outline in the idea book for when I needed to check them. Maybe I was dreaming about his adventures and don’t really remember it. I’m at the end of my energy too, so my mind isn’t making much sense right now.
Goals of the week:
- Help son with schoolwork and studying.
- Play ‘Pirate Warriors 3’ to relax.
- July Posts!
- Birthday stuff . . . I’m not that excited about it.
- Work, which is to be expected.
- Sleep and hydrate
- Anime/comic/cospaly convention
- Make pizza with son for lunch
