I didn’t start until minutes before midnight. The “what I have to do” that I mentioned yesterday ended up taking all day. No complaints because I did enjoy myself, but it did also mean not settling in until long after I’d planned to. But I did get writing done, which is the important thing. I went for a couple of hours, taking a few breaks to try and keep my mind going.
The plan for tomorrow was to go see some of my folks, but as I said in my newsletter, I’ll probably sequester myself and write all day.
What helped today:
- Going in Micro Center. I could have stayed all day. I only got a screwdriver set to fix my Chromebook, but there were so many other things I wanted. I liked the price on the Sandisk low-profile flash drives and next time I’m there, I’ll probably get one or two to use for my USB-based Linux installs.
- A pep talk about my writing. Very much needed, very much appreciated.
- Talking about family history. I take down as much of it as I can, but one of these days, I may need to stick recorders in front of my folks and just have them say everything they can remember. We’ve lost a lot of people in my family over the years.
What I discovered today:
But I remembered that not journaling first thing in the morning leaves me feeling incomplete throughout the day until it’s done.
What else was good?
I didn’t get to go, but the City Knights vanquished the Poly Engineers in the 129th City-Poly Game. That makes six straight wins over the parrots and the all-time series is close to being tied. City Forever.
