I’ve been so busy with other things that it kinda snuck up on me. Today’s my birthday though. So far it’s been a pretty good, low-key day. Got to talk to some friends and family, will hopefully go out for some raids in Pokémon Go soon, and later I’ll have dinner with my parents.
Since it is my special day, I’ve tried to focus only on projects I’ve wanted to work on, but been too busy with actual work to make any progress. Ironically, giving myself this day to only focus on fun things started stressing me out. I keep worrying I’m not using my time to do what would make me happiest. This is silly, of course, but my brain likes to do silly things. I’m trying to remind myself there will be other fun days and not worry too much.
I’d also hoped by my birthday, my business would be further along (read: making any money at all) and I’d be less stressed. Unfortunately, keeping all the stress at bay has been a struggle at times. Still, I spent a lot of time leading up to my birthday planning and reorganizing so I’m in a better place than I might have been.
One of the things I did today that’s relevant to this site is I signed up for Mastodon, an open source social media platform similar to twitter. I look forward to giving it a go and letting you all know what I think. If you’re feeling adventurous in the meantime, I’m including a link so you can sign up and follow me automatically. Say “hi” if you do!
Hopefully, I’ll have time to do some other fun things before the day is up! I’m also pleased the weather is so nice!
Thanks for reading!
