These past few weeks have started to become a blur. Not due to the Christmas rush that has everyone looking like smears on a pastel portrait, but just getting “my ducks in a row.” That’s another saying that doesn’t make too much sense to me. Why would you want your ducks in a row? And who has ducks to be placed in a row? Let them do their own thing.
I digress. I’ve been throwing myself into numerous projects and sometimes my sleeping habits suffer because of it. My entire neck is screaming due to a cramp that woke me from my slumber late last night. I spent a few hours trying to find the most comfortable spot so the bones/muscles/joints/neck-pieces would realign itself and I would wake up feeling rejuvenated. Sadly, no such luck. I need a new neck. In fact, I woke up later than I intended but that’s only because the sleep I desperately sought after for the past week was finally discovered and it was too delicious to leave it.
Nevertheless, I arose since I knew I had many a thing to get accomplished today. Surprisingly, blogging wasn’t one of them. But part of my plan was using the recording and editing studios which are currently booked up, which is why I’m blogging now.
The other things I’ve been up to recently include redesigning my church’s website, designing 3S:FX Productions’ website, recording two voice overs for two clients (with deadlines within two days of one another and a week to complete them). Yesterday was a mostly typical Tuesday that found me recording The Lost Dial with Wendy and only Wendy. “Not a problem” I thought to myself. We are 30+ episodes in and I personally feel I’m not being “myself”. But I’ve started of thinking of ways to fix that so maybe listeners will notice a change in future episodes. However, this last episode I feel is my personal worst. (Self-critique complete.) After the show, I had my last computer class of the year.
By the time I got home, I was too exhausted to do anything in the way of productivity. So I went to bed after eating some rather disappointing Chinese food. I think it’s time to find a new take out spot.
The day is still young. I have many assignments that need to be completed before the sun goes down. And perhaps a dozen more after it actually does. If you notice my Twitter feed is quieter than usual, you’ll know I’m either hard at work, driving somewhere, but unfortunately probably not sleeping.
While I intended to post this soon after I wrote it, that didn’t happen. But the rest of my day more or less went according to schedule. I completed one of the two assignments as I patiently wait for a response. Meanwhile, I’ve decided from here on out that when it comes to posting Lost Dial podcasts, I shall keep them to an hour per upload.
