Last day alone and I simply drew a line and finished the office space, although I could have done a lot more sorting.
But even so the room that now serves as dining, office and living-room for about 20 sq meters still felt … nice in the evening. Like it was actually a real room in a place where we lived and not just half-storage.… Read more
I have a hard time restraining myself from writing – or drawing – now that I have the time, in principle. But I manage.
And I move forward with the office-creation here on the 1½ square-meters in room 1 of our apartment. I have the shelf with the printer and scanner in relative order and I have built a small file cabinet I ordered yesterday.… Read more
My God, I just re-read yesterday’s long post and I thought to myself: What a bunch of messy BS …
And I got a real case of flash impostor syndrome … it happens ever so often when I think about what The Blog is for, and who it is going to be good for.… Read more
So my head is a little bit less of a mess today … I guess it’s true (or so I’ve read somewhere) that taking a vacation can be very stressful for people who are used to work a lot.
However, this isn’t exactly a vacation, so maybe that’s just a BS-thought I need to put somewhere and get on with it.… Read more
My first whole day alone, and it kind of sucked. I guess a part of me have had expectations that I have not quite sorted out.
First of all, I had not considered how much time I would get to spend already on stuff like cleaning up and doing laundry and X-mas shopping – all of which has been postponed while Char and Jay was here.… Read more
So Char and Jay are off, and I went to see JMO in the evening for socializing and to get back some baby-stuff we forgot there (behind the couch) when we borrowed his house to escape the incessant pipe-work.
We had a good discussion – mildly put – JMO and I – about the so called #metoo movement against sexual harassment.… Read more
Stayed at home and helped Char pack and did house and baby-stuff. Char is going south to her family, with Jay and a lot of stuff has to be ready for that sojourn. I also tried to cram in a little bit of business, but it kind of fizzled, so I let go of that … mostly.… Read more
Another ordinary workday on all fronts, so I felt it right to try to sum up how the hell I want to balance life and art – from now on.
Yeah, from now on …
This day. Not another day.
Well, I’ve tried for a few days with my new super-focused use of spare time (again – usually not more than an hour each day), and here’s the rhythm I have found to work so far:
During the day I can watch YouTube-videos but primarily on business matters, such as advice for WordPress freelancers.… Read more
So the next Star Wars-film premiered today in our country, another installment in a series I have loved since I first saw A New Hope in 1981. And now I have learned to hate it.
I have only seen some reviews and ‘plot’ synopses of the new film, since I have already wasted enough life and money on the 3 prequels and the reboot from 2015.… Read more
Only had a little work for a returning client this morning, so I spent some of the remaining work time thinking seriously about the future – even though that was mildly angst-inducing.
Char was out with Jay and so I was at home at the ‘office’ (my desk) while the workers upstairs rummaged around, and I had to take a few walks to get peace and quiet.… Read more
