So Much To Do September 8, 2011

After being unmotivated last week, I’ve spent most of this week editing The Legacy of Heroes Game Master Guide. It’s been quite educational for me. Except for one stint at a very strange, but entertaining Vampire game, I’ve never had reason to read a GM’s book or a Monster book before, and this one is both in one. Really enjoying this project, and the humorous touches that Vinnie et al included in this book.

We had a nice relaxed celebration of Rich’s birthday this past weekend. A couple nice meals, some Dr Who and Torchwood. Didn’t get to go rollerblading again, due to wet weather, but we had a good time even so.

I purchased a new domain this week as well, and set up a new webhosting account with HostGator. In the coming weeks, I will be creating a portfolio there. First a demo WordPress site, then a demo Drupal site, then a demo Joomla site. After that, I’ll be studying PHP and MySQL to see what I can learn to enhance my knowledge of these systems. At some point after that, I may do a Wiki demo, too. This is not something I want to turn into a huge business, but it is something I’d like to do as one of my streams of income.

On the income note, I’ve been doing a bit of job searching, but not much, due to the large amounts of editing I left myself for this week. Next week, I’ll start putting together applications and start applying if I can find the types of jobs I want. According to my Plan, official deadline for applying to jobs is the 24th of this month.

I’ve also got a couple of story ideas floating around in my head, but they haven’t come rushing to the front quite yet. Health is doing pretty well. No major issues lately, just the usual. Life is good, and so full of opportunity and love.

So, all these ideas floating in my head. All these ideas flowing out onto my blog, or in my journals. Business ideas, product ideas, website ideas, writing ideas, education ideas, financial ideas. But idea alone don’t get me anywhere. I need to make plans, decide on steps, break them down into manageable bits instead of grandiose ideas that intimidate me just to look at them. Whenever a phrase comes to mind about time, in this case: time is at a premium, another quote comes to mind: Time is the Fire in which we Burn – from Star Trek Generations, the villian Soran, referencing a poem by Delmore Schwartz. I am so busy already, that I trying to make the time for new things is often overwhelming.

Rich gave me a career change suggestion the other night that I am considering looking into. Retail is not what I want to do with my life, but I do love books and stability. I just don’t know if it is a feasible move given my schedule and per hour requirements. It could be, though.  Mike asked me about working for him “full time.” We are still negotiating what that means and the pros and cons of it.

Health was a bit rocky the last few weeks, my shoulders were complaining loudly and constantly, so I ended up on a Prednisone burst to calm them down. Back off it now, and feeling better, but not 100% yet. Got a few mosquito bites last night, but given it’s August, I was probably due.

Made spelt bread this week, just finished it up today. It’s thick and heavy, but with a bit of garlic and oregano, it’s fairly tasty. Pondering a cheese-less spelt pizza in my near future, with spinach and broccoli. Had one from whole wheat the other day at Whole World and it was very good. Probably doing sweet potato, asparagus and broccoli for dinner tonight.

Life is good.
