Accomplishments Update …

Well, again, it’s been about two months since the last update, and so it’s a good time to talk about how that’s all been going. It’s also a good time to talk about it because I was going to have some vacation time coming up next week but now due to changed circumstances that’s not going to happen. This means that the things that I was putting on hold for when I went on vacation won’t be done then, and so I need to build them into a regular schedule. It’s also the case that my work schedule is less “insanely busy” and more “I kinda have to be around to do stuff and so can’t spare two weeks”, so there’s more time to fit things into my schedule.

So, let’s start with the part that always goes well, DVDs and TV shows/movies. There hasn’t been much happening on the horror movie front, but I’ve gotten back into that very recently, with one last week and another to talk about this week. In terms of TV shows, I’ve cleared off all of my half-hour new shows to watch and am working on the second season of Yu-Gi-Oh as a repeat, and in terms of hourly shows I’ve cleared off Enterprise, Discovery and Doom Patrol and am working on Remington Steele (I’m just about the start the second season of that as well). However, what’s worked out best for DVDs has really been rewatching Charmed. I’m about to finish the second season and have been really enjoying it. It takes some time away from my large stack of new hourly shows, but it’s also working out to be much more enjoyable than those were. Of course, the push to start that was to be able to finish it on the vacation that I’m not going to have, so it’s a little odd. Still, I’m on track to finish it on my next actual vacation in December. I’m still a bit uncertain about this new schedule, but have to admit that it seems to be working for me and is more enjoyable than the alternatives were.

Books are still struggling a bit. While I took some time out to read some graphic novels, at least, I’m right now at about page 1000 in “War and Peace”, which is only 600 pages more than I had read the last time. It’s hard to find time to just sit and read it, and the weight of it is such that it’s hard to do while watching other things, especially TV shows and DVDs. And since I’m not watching sports as much anymore, I don’t even have those time blocks to get some reading in. So, really, I haven’t made much progress here. I don’t really know what I’ll do next once I finish it, as I had wanted to keep reading the classic works but if they all take that long I might have to take a break and read something else.

For video games … I’ve done nothing. Well, I’ve built a list of all of the classic console games I want to play, but have done nothing otherwise. To be fair, I didn’t have this on my schedule for when I went on vacation and so was simply planning on picking something up after that, so all this means is that I need to do that a little bit earlier than planned. TOR and Elsinore are the big ones for the blog and for my general discussions, but things like Steins;Gate are probably more interesting right now.

And for projects … very, very little. Here I was planning to focus on them when I went on vacation which, again, is simply not happening, so I have to get it into my schedule again. Considering that all I’ve done here is some playing around with Twine, there’s a lot to do and the time to do it is fleeting.

So, that’s where I am right now. It’ll be interesting to see what, if anything, happens between now and December, which is the next big breakpoint in my schedule.
