The Drawers Reorganized Again

Leave a comment

Normal is an illusion in my life. Here’s an example: how does one organizing project undo another? When you’re me mostly. Only having a day a week for these projects lead to some projects leaving things to be closely examined in later project, but I need a place to put them. So this set of drawers ended up taking on a few extra items and turning from the lovely display here to a mess when I did the hunt for electronics manuals recently. Between that and rethinking a few things led to this week’s project.

With the drawer a mess again the goal was to get it back to something usable, so I can find things in the future. Taking things I’ve learned in prior project and putting them here I have something I can work with.

Quick Report: Some Random Projects

Leave a comment

At best this report is “I did a few things”. Basically I only opted for a few smaller projects this week because it’s what I wanted to work on. While I’m strong enough physically to take on more intense projects again this week my brain just wasn’t in it. At least I…

  • …cleaned up a small area of my bedroom which including throwing out a pair of shoes that I can’t wear anymore. The sides are out of shape so wearing them really wasn’t safe. Luckily I still have a pair of dress shoes and I’m thinking I bought them because the older shoes were out of shape but never had a chance to toss them and then forgot the whole thing. Don’t tell me you didn’t collect clutter the same way. I have a bit more room now and probably the best I can do without tossing stuff I actually need out. Like my bed. Not much of a bedroom without a bed.
  • …reorganized my art space a bit. Again, just a corner of it and if it wasn’t for the third project this would be all about organizing corners. Not that it matters because I reorganize my art space every few months, or at least that’s how it feels like. I’m not even completely sure I maximized the area so in a few months I may be reporting on that project again. In fact I know I want to do some reorganizing with my various paper I use for writing and drawing once I go into one of the drawer organizing stages, which I hope to do soon if not next week.
  • …started to add to my list of Saturday Night Showcase postings that I have in a spreadsheet. There are times I swear I used something for the feature on my other website where I promote fan and indie projects as well as the current official or licensed YouTube channels that have popped up. (I like to support the official release, but I haven’t done enough indie and fan works in a while. Maybe after Christmas I’ll go hunting.) I might have gotten further, though I don’t know if I would have finished, if not for WordPress going down during the whole thing and some other issues I was having on my end. I’m going to keep working on that so I can find things for my site. It’s still organizing so technically it still counts.

So I accomplished…most of what I wanted yesterday. It may not be much but the bedroom looks a bit clearer, I finally got rid of the unwearable (safely if you want to walk in them) shoes, and the stuff related to other projects. It’s still a victory and victories are what keep you working on a project. I just need to get back to making a few major victories now that I’m able to.

Quick Report: Trying To Bust The YouTube Backlog

Leave a comment

My YouTube backlog is becoming a distraction. Being as sick as I’ve been this year has kept me from keeping up since if I was home I was still too tired to keep on it. Add to that running a website and trying to get other projects done, including this de-cluttering project and it’s just getting to be a bit much. So this week the goal was to cut through the backlog with the must-watch shows. I should also be taking stock at what is just curiosities and lightening my load that way. Just keeping up with what I want to see has been hard enough.

As it is I’ve only gotten as far as mid-September, and I’m posting this in early November. That’s how bad it is so I’m doing the best I can. This year my best hasn’t been good enough but factors keep getting in the way. Short version: I hate this year. I need to figure out how to get caught up, some of these channels used as research for the other site, not only with this backlog but what’s on the DVR. I’m trying to figure out how other reviewers and creators have time to do anything because I certainly don’t know the trick.
