Keeping the streak alive


It’s Saturday. It’s a lovely Saturday where I am, and I’m enjoying being able to see the sun for a change. Usually where I sit, my back is not only to a window, but the window is about eight to ten feet from the neighbor’s window, so even if the sun is shining, it doesn’t reach the alley between our homes.

And the temperature is in a lovely place where the sun is warm on the skin, but the breeze picks up once in a while to soothe you. It’s in my ideal range of 65-70, and I am happy.

I am, however, less happy to wear a mask in this weather. I hate to sweat, and it’s pretty much guaranteed if I wear a mask when it’s this warm that I’ll heat up enough to sweat. Ick. But I’ll do it. Don’t get me wrong. I won’t like it, but I’ll do it.

There’s not a lot going on today. Aside from my usual Saturday chore, I had thought about filming a video (I have everything but the tripod, but I can manage without that), and I would just like to spend some time outside. I’d thought about meditating out there before I’m done here, but the neighbor and his child keep coming outside, so perhaps neither filming nor meditating will happen. I could just go sit, though.

I’m currently watching some Minecraft Twitch streams, and the one I’m most interested is almost over, so perhaps I’ll go out after this is over.

What else? I pre-ordered a new Start Today journal. I almost ordered a planner, too, but then I remembered that A) my favorite type of planner is a Bullet Journal of my own creation, and B) because of A, no other planners really stick with me. And while someday I hope to be in a place where I can just try all the journals to find the one I really love, I’m not in that place right now, and the reason that the Bullet Journal works so well for me is because if I get into a financial situation where I can’t purchase the lovely $20 journals that I prefer, it will work just as well in a composition notebook, a spiral bound notebook, or whatever notebook I have laying around. (And I have a lot of notebooks laying around. That’s another video to come up at some point, once I decide how I want to film it.)

Let’s see…I have a new patron on my Patreon page! I really need to get some early writing up there. I’m doing well at getting regular-ish videos out with their 24-hour early release, but now I need to get some words. In the journal I just finished with, I mentioned I should write. Now that I’ve done the blogging, it’s probably time to fiction. I don’t know what to write, really. The idea that was tickling my brain wasn’t exactly suited to a short story. Then again, maybe it doesn’t matter. Maybe I’ll try my hand at writing a serial? That might be one of those things that happens accidentally, though, if I’m honest.

Okay. All done! I wish I could have had this pre-scheduled for release at 7:42 am like I’ve been doing, but at this point, I’m just glad to keep up my streak. There may be a lot more posts like this – rambly bits without purpose just to keep a streak alive.

And there may be a lot less posts like this. I don’t want to commit to a schedule because Life gets in my way from time to time, and ultimately, my blog isn’t needed to be regular for anyone. It just needs to be there for me.



  1. I love your blog! I can’t wait to see your pretty journals, too. And yes, I need to write fiction as well.
