Slow Progress

20 08 2017

Time for another weekly update, though as usual I am pretty lost as to what I should talk about due to the constant lack of content to write. Well, I suppose it’ll be kind of the same old boring stuff.

Work wise, I have somehow completed a full week of work, and I suppose changes are coming, especially with the official announcement of some restructuring to be done. I’m not sure how much change or how effective it will be, but I suppose it beats not doing anything about it and let it spiral into a deeper abyss. I guess the biggest benefit out of it is that there will probably be a temporarily hold to a possible “crisis”, of which I think many would not know of otherwise. Though if you have noticed, there is a very important keyword mentioned, and yup, it does indicate that it can still happen, depending on how the changes would be done, if at all. If all goes well, I suppose all of that will be avoided, but until then I will still keep a lookout on how things turn out since I am not so much of an optimist. I don’t have much influence on matters, so I guess I will have to use my usual tactics to get by in the meantime. As it is, it doesn’t look like things are all that bright just yet although I can probably avoid pushing the panic button for now.

Backlog wise, I haven’t been clearing a whole lot recently, and in fact you could say I have been ‘neglecting’ it as I would have, as compared in recent times. Hmm, then again, clearing backlog isn’t really my ‘job’, so I shouldn’t have to feel bad about not focusing on it. In any case, I will still try to make fighting game videos appear on my blog with higher priority and currently it is still safe for the rest of the month. We’ll see if it can last until the next “big release” which is coming in the later part of September where I can expect a truckload of content to be released shortly after, considering the efficiency of uploaders these days. In the meantime, I shall try to figure what I should focus on since I don’t exactly have all the time in the world to do everything.

While it is going to be a long weekend for me, tomorrow is actually gonna be a pretty tiring day due to the amount of physical work I’ll probably need to do. Well, it is something I have to deal with sooner or later, so I shall try to make the best out of it. If I feel like writing about it, I guess you will see it in the next entry, though it is probably not very likely since it is a pretty mundane task anyhow. Take care and I shall see you one last time towards the end of the month. See ya.

1.2 Million

13 08 2017

Hey there, it’s time for another weekly update, and probably nothing hugely too eventful as usual. As for the title, unfortunately it doesn’t indicate the amount of Dollars I have, but rather the number of words already published on my blog, though that’s not counting the reserves which are waiting for their turn at a shot in coming out of the drafts state. Ah well, it’s just another random stat since I don’t consciously write more for the sake of chalking up word count anyway.

In any case, let’s start with work. I am kind of thankful for the little public holiday in the midst of the week since it provided a timely break from an otherwise not very nice week. Actually the recent weeks have not been exactly all that fun and it doesn’t look like things will be getting a whole lot better any time soon. Well it seems there are signs of change coming, though again I am not so sure about its effectiveness until proven, considering how some of these things have been feedback since a long time ago. In any case, it’s not like I have a whole lot of options or influence to do anything about it at the moment, or in fact in any foreseeable future. I guess for the most part I shall just continue to do it in similar fashion for the time being, until I see a need to do otherwise.

As for backlog, I suppose the time I’ve been spending on an old game has affected it quite a bit since I haven’t even touched any of those videos which I would normally do during the weekend, but at least I guess there’s still enough drafts to go around nonetheless so I don’t exactly have to worry too much about this blog not having any entries for the time being. Maybe I should clear some of those backlog after writing this and take a break from gaming from the time being, since I am pretty much reaching some sort of bottleneck over there anyway. Ah well, there are also some entries waiting for me to write, so I should also start working on them in the near future too, since snowballing written entries can become quite a deterrent for me later on. Hahaha. Anyhow, it’s more of something which will annoy me, but most of you will probably not notice any difference regardless.

Well then, I should be going off to clear some stuff before another long working week ahead. Take care and hopefully I will be back again next week and not in a whiny mood. We shall see how it goes.

p.s. I need to put in more effort.

Losing Interest

6 08 2017

To be honest, I am not exactly in a very great mood right now, so writing this is more of trying to get over and done with it. It has been a long week at work, and I don’t suppose I kind of liked the process of it. Well, at least the coming week has a natural break in the middle of it, while not the best of days to have a holiday, it beats having none at all. Lol.

Work wise, I am actually not very interested to talk too much about it, other than it looks like the future plans look fairly bad with big tasks more or less lined up for the next 2-3 months, and yeah that’s just talking about big tasks. Yah well, not much I can do about it, so just pass the week as they come while trying to find a way to not get drowned in that huge mess coming up. In the meantime, I need to try to get to know the newcomers better, though generally I am pretty bad at doing such things. Heh. Ah well, maybe I will talk more about work the next time if I am up for it.

In other matters, it appears I haven’t had much chance to touch my backlog during the week due to me being pretty tired and all after work so I guess it might be slacking off a little. In any case, the week’s entries are still able to be scheduled without any hiccups, thanks to the videos which I have cleared last month. Also, spending a bit of time on a game which I am currently pretty much stagnant because I don’t have much luck when it comes to having the right drops, as the game has proven to me since years ago. If not for some friends playing, I would probably have stopped by now.

Well, it’s pretty late on Sunday now, and I guess it won’t be long before I have to sleep and deal with the work waiting for me. The weather hasn’t been so nice lately either so everyone who’s still reading this, please take care of yourselves and hydrate more. See you next week, hopefully.

p.s. I really should have slept more during the weekend, but there’s this feeling of wanting to watch shows and play games.
