First day of my new schedule, it was all going fine, up until the afternoon, a mega headache struck me! I forgot to mention that I was also going to abstain from all candy, chocolate, tea, sugar, soda and such. Since I will be reducing my food intake, I will have to make sure I only eat stuff that maximizes my nutrient intake without risking over eating again. And that’s why I got hit by a major headache, it happens every time I stop drinking tea. Seems like even the innocent tea is a major poison for the body.
I didn’t get much writing done today; I spent most of it applying for jobs, checking mails, posting last week’s blog post, and wasted away playing 7days2die, nerd. I’m slowly learning to avoid Facebooking too much as well. Some people keep trying to argue with me, but they keep repeating their ignorance, so instead of explaining over and over, I’ve decided to leave people to rot in their stupidity. It spares me a lot of time, I wrote a book titled “GOD The Creator”
This book puts it all into perspective and answers all questions and shatters all those arguments that keep circulating in the mind of atheists. But it also challenges the religious person, giving them new perspectives to look at the whole ordeal and examine if their faith is true or false.
One of my many awaited packages came today; it was the tablet-holder and ink for the printer. I checked those off of my list of things to keep track of stuff.
Anyhow, the pain from the headache made it impossible to do anything, so I watched YouTube and such. I highly recommend the following channel: Good Mythical Morning, with Rhett & Link. It is THE BEST thing that ever happened to YouTube, I can’t believe or rather I REFUSE to accept that they are not getting 500 million views daily at least!
Guess what day it is today? Today is today, duh, what did you think? Silly you!
Woke up early, no headache, worked out, prayed, showered, ate, think I ate one sandwich too much though, I ate three, which I’m used to, but I will be reducing it down to two sandwiches, and that will become my standard from now on. Never eat more than two! *repeats like a mantra*
Today was a – fix stuff – day, since I had an headache yesterday and couldn’t fix anything, I then had to do everything today instead. I did some administrative work and went out and bought some stuff I need. Bought electrical wire and a couple plugs, I pulled an electrical wire into the sound booth, yes I am an electrician I can do this! So that’s done! And some special screws and stuff to set up the surf tablet support-arm-thingy.
Two packages arrived today, well, one and a half to be accurate. 25 pieces of A5 lined notebooks, a box of pens, ink corrector, and NOT the USB memory stick that I ordered. So stupid, the entire reason why I even ordered from this online shop is because of the USB memory stick, but no, it was sold out… even though it said it was in stock when I ordered it. So stupid.
The next package was my whey protein and multivitamins, but only half arrived. I contacted support and they said I had ordered too much so they had to split it up into two different packages (without telling me), but whatever, it should arrive tomorrow. When ordering, I was given free stuff to choose from! I picked a pink shaker. Why pink? Because I will look so cool when jogging outside, sipping on a pink flask. No, but it is to make sure nobody touches it!
Anyways, so far so good (except for the USB stick that’s missing).
This time I ate only two sandwiches and it felt much better, however, I was still feeling stuffed from last night’s quick meal. I need some slow protein over the night, but I ate too late, will change that to at least two hours before bedtime and see what happens.
Didn’t do much work related, spent most of the day reading.
More packages came in as well, the rest of the protein and vitamin supplements came. Also my microphone and other stuff I ordered for it, yay. Early presents for me!
My sister and her kids came today, my shoes went missing almost immediately… and there was food thrown all over the kitchen, oh the joy of children!
First day of a new month and THE LAST MONTH, then it is a new year, wow, looking back over the course of this year, I’ve accomplished exactly nothing! Well, not really nothing, there is plenty of work being done. But I’ve just been busy with too much other stuff, also I worked for at least a full year, which took a lot of time away from my writing. It has only been like 12 weeks so far, since I started putting more attention and effort into my writing projects. Yup, basically since I started this journal blogging thingy! So in 12 weeks I’ve only done around 20 000 words spread across different novels, I also did begin on a comic, that has been taking my time as well, otherwise I would’ve written twice that amount. Whatever, things are moving forward, that makes me happy, can’t wait to release and share all of it!
The tablet arrived today, I thought I had ordered the one with built in projector, Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro, but apparently I ordered the wrong version. I was looking at it on an online shop and then saw a review mentioning that it was $200 cheaper if bought directly from the manufacturer. So I went to their website and ordered it. But it turns out the difference was more than just the price, the comparison charts didn’t mention anything other than processor, memory and other technical details. There was no comparison listing different functions. Very bad web design for such a big company. But whatever, turns out the one I ordered was among their latest version with high resolution, so I’m fine with that, I will be using it for reading anyways, and I don’t see where I will find the time to even care about watching movies on a projector.
Didn’t do much work today either, wrote a couple of comic scripts and then went to bed.
Today I thought it was Thursday! Yeah, that’s why I do these journal writing blog thingies, to keep track of time. Do you really think I would’ve known this was Week 48 without this journal keeping? HELL NO! Whatever, it is Friday, went to bed late last night so I wanted to sleep a couple of hours extra today, but nope, neighbor started to hammer away at stuff early in the morning, making the entire building shake.
Spent most of the day with family, I built a shelf in the kitchen for the incoming stuff I bought for the kitcheb, minioven, minimicrowave, ice cream machine, self-baking machine and a mixer. Will be making honey-muesli-whole grain bread and banana milk ice cream, bah, I’m going to make lots of stuff on a daily basis, cheap but super nutritious foods.
Worked out a little, tried out some new things and did a little bit of research. I think I have figured out the best workout routine for my schedule, so I will be incorporating it starting tomorrow (I hope).
A packade came today as well, microSD card and plastic protection for keyboards. Cleaned my keyboard and covered with plastic, so much more sanitary. The plastic is not really plastic, but a synthetic material that kills bacteria, fungi and molds AND it protects against accidently spilling water all over the keyboard! Feels super nice and clean while typing.
The microSD is for the tablet, 128 GB of storage! I transferred all my current ebooks from my computer to my tablet, so now I can just lay down in bed all day and read, yay laziness!
I lazily turned off my alarm, in hopes of getting more sleep, but oh well, two hours extra sleep didn’t do much. And I missed out on so much because of that, my eating schedual got messed up. Whatever. I got to imprint in my brain “wake up at 6 am no matter what!.”
So what did I do today, I fired up the computer to write a couple of comic scripts, but nope, didn’t feel like it. It feels so boring and cold to sit in front of a computer, the blank canvas, bleh.
However, I do prefer to edit on the computer; it feels like a completely different process that writing. And having material already available makes it less daunting, it removes the “cold” feeling of computer screens.
I chose to just relax and read all day instead, been reading Lovecraft’s work so far and learned a lot. So far so good, I did however stumble upon a couple of writing mistakes. For example, one paragraph was way too descriptive in the novel “At the Mountains of Madness”, it made me lose focus. He should’ve rewritten it, even if it had taken him more words, to keep the flow going and keep the reader absorbed into the story.
Another thing I learned is the importance of characters, for example his character “Adul Alhazred” is soooo damn important for the entire mythos. I just love how Lovecraft is such a master at keeping you at suspense and the “release” never leaves you 100% content, it keeps you wondering.
Anyways, I exercised as well, body was sore from yesterday’s mistake/experiments.
Watched the movie “The Mechanic, Resurrection” while relaxing, and then watched an episode of Good Mythical Morning before falling asleep. I know it’s a morning show, but the whole “feeling” of the show is just so cozy and relaxing, making the perfect show to wake up to and to watch before going to bed. But I prefer to meditate upon waking up and then stay active as much as possible throughout the day, so watching the show before bedtime works out better for me.
Schedule-wise, the day was perfect. Except that I’ve been skipping my 8 km walks these last couple of days. I’m thinking of tripling my walks since I’ve been the most productive (writing wise) during my walks, and I’ve basically finished most the renovations in the apartment and built everything that is needed. These last couple of weeks has kept me busy with many things other than my projects, so now I’m focusing on getting into the writers’ life again and put all my effort in that area
Anyhow, I spent the day just reading and reading and reading. I did my workouts as well.
I did watch a few episodes of House of Cards, a new series I started watching today, it has an interesting style of filming. But I can’t figure how it will keep the interest up, oh well, I will just watch it until I feel that it is getting repetitive. It is four seasons, so I’m guessing it is good.
I continued reading “At the Mountains of Madness” by H.P. Lovecraft, it is such a slow read. The book is for academics or anyone who enjoys a dark adventure with exploration of the unknown. The minimal amount of dialogue and face to face interaction gives the reader a cold feeling. Also, the book is not about ideas or emotions; it is basically just exploring the physical realm of things, leaving the reader completely free to feel whatever they want to feel or believe whatever they want to believe. A very interesting writing style, but like I said, it only speaks to people who are able to think for themselves, who seek knowledge, not entertainment. The entertainment comes second in “At the Mountains of Madness”, instead, Lovecraft takes you on a realistic adventure. Something that tickles the explorer inside of us and leaves us wanting to explore even further! But I’m just 70% into the book, let’s see how it ends! Usually mystery and horror stories give the reader the “release” at the end.
