I’ve been working on a few projects these last few weeks. And the first one I’m highlighting is part of a recent CAL I just finished. I actually made one for the CAL, and then followed up with a second one to give to a friend who is finding herself on a new adventure.
I’m feeling kind of run down, so I’ll try to keep this short. One things for sure, my boss is definitely human and as irritated as I was this afternoon with him, being human means you make mistakes. You can’t always be perfect. I ended up reassuring him of this and made sure that things for what happened go smoothly later on this week. I think I would of been more concerned if the people I had to reschedule things with had been more seriously stressed about it. They joked with me on the phone instead.
I’ve spent the last few days, racing through the campaign for Destiny 2. This has also been punctuated by adult requirements to living (like laundry, showers, food, etc). I haven’t really decided if I’m impressed with this latest development for the game franchise, or if I wanted more. Bungie definitely gets some credit for the new beautiful worlds that they created, and I do like how the skills have been revamped. But the story line and the general activities that were in Destiny 1 are very much the same in Destiny 2. We get to the end of the game and we still have questions, there’s still the feeling of plot holes or the lack of explanation about the hanging threads they had from the first game. And there’s still a grind to go through and unlock everything, trying to get to that max light level.
I’m a few days late. But I have a good excuse! I got that rogue tooth yanked out and I’ve been recovering. My mouth has been achy, but, thankfully, not so achy today. So reviewing august’s goals, I failed at the 2 posts a week, so that’s back on for this month. Even though I didn’t share completion of the goals I had listed, I still feel I did fairly better than I have in the past.
Yesterday marks two years that me and the Beau has been together. It feels like we’ve been together for way longer than just two years. I feel like we’ve been together for a life time already. I suppose that’s a good thing too?
We celebrated by going to Denali for a rafting trip, then swinging by 49th State Brewery for Alaskan brewed beer and food. Unfortunately, no pictures. I didn’t take a camera or my phone with me on the river (a little paranoid about losing it), but you can imagine in your head how pretty it was to see the tail end of the park, going through canyons and running through class III and class IV rapids. It was a guided tour, so we didn’t have to work too much for it, but admittedly, I’m feeling pretty sore today from bracing myself in the raft.
I think one of the things I’ve been struggling with (especially when it comes to fulfilling my “post twice” a week goal) is a lack of proper planning. Back in the day it was super easy for me to just plan out topics for interest areas and keep going from there. I haven’t really made myself sit down to do that (granted it was in my private outline in how to achieve said goal because that’s apparently recommendations for people trying to follow through on goals). And I think it comes down to more than just motivation. I’m motivated, yeah, but I haven’t been very disciplined. Now, I’m going to caveat this to say that I’ve actually have been writing privately, regularly, just not here in the public forum and space. I think it’s because I’m not so mindful of what I’m writing when it’s in private, but in public, I’m feeling a lot more conscientious.
