Too Much?

August 11th, 2008 · 1 Comment · Potpourri

I didn’t sleep well again last night. I got out of bed at about 3AM and tried to wear myself out reading. Finally fell asleep again at 4.

I have an unusually large amount of work to do this week. B helped me get my office at home organized and I’m almost done with that. If things get too hectic at the real office, I may retreat back home to finish up some things away from the constant flow of people popping into my office to request something trivial they should be doing themselves or crack some lame joke about how easy my job is.

I’m not usually this whiny or self-centered about my job, but lately it has really hit me how much I have to do around here. I don’t envy the guys who have to fly all over the world all the time, but I really do think I’ve got the most stressful position here. I’m trying to let all the gravity issues slide right off of me and only allow the important, controllable aspects of this place to motivate me.

My spellchecker isn’t working in WordPress right now. Little things like that make me nervous and less productive than I should be. Another example: There are no Mac drivers for my printer/scanner at home. It was a cheap printer and I should just get another one, but I wasted over an hour yesterday trying to find some way to use it.

I’m finally getting around to editing some of the video from our last show, but I haven’t had the time to really learn Final Cut the way I want to. I have so many projects I want to advance, but nothing is going the way I want it to right now. You can see the videos as I put them up here.

Probably no more Soul Glow gigs until December, and that really bums me out. I had a few other musical projects brewing, but none have materialized. I really want to be playing out more often, preferably once a week on average.

I bought a scooter. B and I are taking a motorsickle riding course this weekend. That should be fun. I still don’t think I want to actually buy a motorsickle yet, the biggest reason being right now we have no place to put one.

To all interested and available, we’re thinking of having a smallish get-together at our place on burn night. More later.
