My Life Since The Last Big Post
Last night was one of the most productive nights I've had in a long time. I started up this years nanowrimo, palyed my kol turns, did a bit of coding for my sites, scanned some old drawings and made posts to robotion and draw. I should keep this up, huh?
Dammit. I wasn't able to get this post up on the bridge. Ah well, might as well elaborate.
Getting a post up on the bridge is a lot harder than I thoguht it would be. Getting a phone signal is easy but getting a data signal isn't as much. If I prepare beforehnad I can usually make it but I'm usually not this alert on my commute home.
I recently took a break from caffeine. It's been a week since I've had any caffeine and I'm more alert and able to stay alert through my entire shift at work. Prior to this, immediately after eating on my break, I'd be falling asleep.
It probably stemmed from being up for 24+ hrs twice in on weekend and drinking coffee pretty much all day on the weekends. Coffee is probably the only thing that's really drawing me back. I imagine I could switch to decaf. That might do the trick. Maybe not though.
So far the results have been pretty positive so I may cut it out completely.
I haven't been drawing for the past few months. I've been in a bit of a rut. I can't believe it's november already. I've been on overnights for almost two months now. I usually draw during work but I just never get the privacy I prefer while I draw. I really hate people looking over my shoulder while I work.
I hope to get into a new routine of drawing pretty soon. I just recently figured out this thing that was keeping me from going all digital in my drawings so I may get more done faster if I go down that road. It may lead me to buying a bigger better tablet but that's not a big deal.
What I really want to get is a new laptop. Mu ibook is showing its age. Its perfectly fine for some pretty inetense normal usage. Running itunes and a web browser and chat and a movie at once is usually no problem. It gets a little hairy when I'm also running photoshop and illustrator and a web server and a text editor which is something I do fairly regularly.
I could pick up a macbook pro right now but there's this feature I know is just about to come out and I'm kind of fixated on getting it so I'm waiting on that. If amazon.com is right, I should be able to have it within 4 to 6 weeks.
Okay I'm almost home. Woo!
