Time away from the job flies by in an instant. I plan to write down stuff that happened so that I can slow down/recall a few moments from the blur.
On work days I mainly eat those microwaveable breakfast sandwiches or cereal, but on days off I cook sausage, make toast, waffles, scramble eggs, & all of that other good stuff. I don't cook for myself much these days but breakfast is the exception to that.
Did regular chores. Wash dishes, fold laundry, and so on. It's not exciting, but has to be done. Something about it is kind of relaxing though. Once I get into it I'm able to zone out and be in the moment of some simple task. 9x's out of 10, I've probably got some tv show or movie on in the background or listening to something to help pass time.
Every moment I spend at home isn't truly spent alone. I've got my faithful feline companion, Penny, to keep me company. About a week or so ago, my fiancé bought a bird feeder that attaches to the window and Penny has been loving it! She spends hours on end sitting by the window, staring at all of the visitors that come by.
This has nothing to do with anything, but I had strawberry milk for the first time in a long while. Still tasty, folks.
Right now, the only thing I'm actively working on is preparation of materials I want to use to pitch for an animated short. Visited a neighborhood print shop to print copies of a pitch bible/comic. I've never printed a comic in this way before so I had to revise some things. Mainly, rearranged pages so that they're in the correct order and fixed some text portions. Still thinking up additional ideas to make this project really stand out, but it's coming along.
While I like working on stuff like this, it's pretty tedious work. So, this is when I catch up on all of the podcast that have been downloading to my phone. I am enjoying doodling and thinking up stories. It's been a nice change of pace after focusing on music so much. It's funny (not in a ha-ha way) how dreams and attention can shift. Everything I do has been something I've liked or wanted to do as a kid. I can remember being middle school age and being really dedicated to the idea of being a game designer, then toward late middle school to post-high school I was all about being a musician, then at some point I found myself heavy into photography, now here I am being more interested in comic & cartoon making. I still love all of these things so I guess as I've gotten older I've learned that I don't have to be one thing. I can have varied interest and try anything that I think is fun & see where it leads me. Why cut myself off from anything?
Since I've been taking a break from "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild", I've felt like I've kinda been neglecting the Switch. I did try out the demo to "PuyoPuyo Tetris".
After playing, I decided I won't be picking up the full game. It didn't quite click with me. Same goes for "Splatoon 2". After the global test fire I thought about it for awhile and felt like it wasn't a game for me. I don't feel like getting destroyed by players that have mastered the game. I am still looking forward to "Arms" though & I'll be picking up "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe" this week.
I started a Japanese profile on Switch so that I could get access to 'import' games from that region's eshop. "Kamiko" made me finally pull the trigger. I've liked Skipmore's other games. I played the original "Fairune" on my phone and when I finally got around to picking up a New 3DS XL, I went for "Fairune" & its sequel right away.
For some reason I've been thinking about my beloved retro games. One of my next days off, I think I want to play some classic SNK fighting games & some shmups..!
"Persona 5" has been sucking me in deeper & deeper. Somehow I get attached to the characters, invested in the world and want to keep playing for as long as I can. I play it on easy mode because I don't care about any of the RPG aspects of the game. I simply want to be in that world and interact with those characters.
