Barely Contained Mayhem

Hey Readers,

I know it’s been a while since I’ve written anything. Sorry about that. Been dealing with a few setbacks, both minor and less minor.

Living in New England, we’re no stranger to severe weather, and this is the time of year we get it. Over the past 2 weeks we’ve had 3 Nor’Easters, which have meant a hell of a lot of snow days for the kids I work with and a fair amount of lost power (and work) around the homestead.

I’ve also been jockeying for a promotion at my current job, and more recently, looking for other options if that doesn’t work out (which, while the interview was very positive, I get the feeling is the case).

On top of all this, we’ve had some weird technical setbacks. Katie’s tablet seemed not to be working right, but now it looks like it might be our desktop. Not exactly surprising given its age, but still a bummer. And two days ago, I accidentally deleted a bunch of Lulach stuff, making the already very late episode I’ve been sporadically working on that much later. I’m re-editing it now.

So yeah, I’m a little frustrated. I don’t mean to complain, but having this kind of blog means a certain amount of honesty is expected.

I’d like to tell you about some of the positives going on in my life, now. Maybe it will make up for my bellyaching.

Katie and I have been re-imagining our story and concepts for the larger Prism project. Discussion around that has been very rewarding. Still difficult at times, and still sporadic, but very positive and more in line with what we clearly resonate with.

I’ve started playing Persona 5! I’ll probably write more about that in an upcoming blog. It’s an experience, let me tell you!

I’ve been experimenting with Indian cooking! That has very little to do with our creative pursuits, but it’s just so dang tasty, I had to share.

I think I’ve come to accept that right now, this is a hobby. I like doing it, but I have a lot going on and I need to not stress myself out too much for not being able to produce at the rate I want. Maybe that will help me out, though, in the long run. Pressure and disappointment do a lot to hamper your ability to work, I find. The less I stress, the better I’ll be.

I hope all’s well with everyone, and I look forward to writing again soon.

Aiden
