Life news this week:
- Saturday I got my blogging done but it took way longer than I meant it to. I managed to record a Letters to an Asexual video too and made some Polos for people I talk to. But the day mostly involved avoiding productivity somehow.
- Sunday I made a graphic for my office's Hanukkah post on LinkedIn. I'm not great at designing graphics but I guess I'm passable at it. Also I did laundry, recorded some karaoke, talked to my friend Sarah, took out the trash, and posted my latest video. I also worked on my podcast. At night I lit candles for Hanukkah and had some latkes. And I decided to plan to have a Christmas Eve party.
- Monday was mostly involved with a proposal. Then I worked out my drawings for my So You Write comic and drew and colored it while talking to my friends and playing games.
- Tuesday I was caught up in coordination for proposals and letters. I also took a break to go to the doctor for my yearly checkup. I got a flu shot! And was told I need to take Vitamin D and Red Yeast Rice supplement. And I need to make a couple appointments for radiology. After work I posted my comic and caught up with Polos and worked on my podcast video.
- Wednesday I worked on a letter with my newest co-worker. I had to edit it twice because he made changes on an old version, haha. Also had to go to a meeting and used a virtual background for the first time! Cool. I outlined a couple proposals coming up and wrangled some documents. After work Jeaux and I ate at Panera in their outdoor area, and we got our shopping done. (I got my supplements.) We watched Colbert, took a walk, and watched the film Tick...Tick...BOOM! which was pretty good. I did some household cleaning and posted my podcast.
- Thursday I was grungy and cleaned up the rest of the crap in the house, and at work I worked on technical support for someone who couldn't connect and making reports. Victor called in the evening and told me about what's been going on for him. It's not going great and he still needs to find a place to live.
- Friday it was foggy in the morning! I did my upcoming project reports and administrative stuff at work, finally finished cleanup/laundry and grabbed a shower while I was supposed to be working, so I stayed late to finish reading a letter. Then after work I finished my webcomic and posted it and my mom called after midnight because her volume was too low while she was trying to watch Andy Griffith on the phone and hoped I could fix it. Haha.
