So, quick venting post, I guess.
It’s super hot again. Fuck the heat.
It’s currently 10:27 PM over here, so I could in theory work on a draft right now for today’s post… but I need those same drafts for tomorrow and the day after tomorrow, given that I’ll return super late and those posts need to get finished up and scheduled for those two days. So, I’ll just talk a little bit here about why I don’t really have anything else to talk about today.
I set one of my goals for this year’s Blaugust to be “31 Reviews in 31 Days”. I have a few review drafts sitting around but frankly, I don’t think I can do that.
I have fun writing reviews but if I were to publish reviews daily, that would quickly turn into “work”… but it’s a hobby. A hobby that is supposed to be fun, at that.
Frankly, I don’t want to go there.
Hence, I’ll see if I can get a few more reviews out in the next few days but if not, that’s also fine. Maybe I’ll try again something different akin to that challenge in another month but at the moment, I just don’t feel like losing hair over some stupid goal.
Rather, my goal of getting 31 posts out in August is on its way to being accomplished, especially with a few double posts and stuff. At the same time, my paragraph length has been kept in check for quite a while now, so I feel like that’s a success.
Overall, I feel good about my participation in this year’s Blaugust. I don’t want to overdo it and possibly burn out.
Alas, I’ll probably end the post on that note. I’ve got nothing else to talk about today. My sleep schedule is a hot mess, so I’ll try getting to sleep early tonight (aka in an hour or so once the melatonin kicks in) and then I’ll see if I can get a reset going on that whole sleep cycle thing and stuff.
If I manage to do it tomorrow in the morning, I wanna donate some blood again as well. It’s important to do that, especially in summer. Hopefully, I wake up in time.
