So much to do. So little time

I love my city. My past collection of writings are kind of a tip-off to it. Unfortunately, the problem is now bigger than ever. We have a sheer flood of zealotry with some of the worst people on the city commissioner. Honestly, it seems that the different groups of people want to act like screaming children.

Blood has been shed, people have been hurt, and honestly, it hurts to see so much pain, the dirt, the homelessness. It really does hurt because there was a magic of Portland before all of this; there really was. It is just something where people have really poisoned it over time, and now it honestly feels like seeing someone I actually care about die. There is nothing I can do about it.

Luckily, cities can build again, but right now, it is so sick from top to bottom that I would need to have a herculean effort. A little luck to get the ball moving in the right direction. Hence, when people try to say some things, I tend to fire my mouth off without holstering.

If people ever call me an asshole, there is a good chance that I will nod and accept it; I have made my peace with it.

Okay, enough bitching, what is new, been filling out some formulas on spice blends and seeing what prices are previously dried, but it looks like that it would be much cheaper doing it in-house. Got a logo done as well and even thought of some fun new ways of advertising that I think will get a chuckle. Still, that is getting ahead, but if one is a fan of the old Segata Sanshiro commercials, one may like where I take it.

Also got a draft of the primary logo, filled out a more in-depth business plan, and looked for ways to make the business really shine. All of this is kind of new to me again, and hopefully, the idea maybe I can go on Indiegogo, or Kickstarter, or something like that.

I got to go to the doctor because I have been more exhausted than ever as of late. So hopefully, I can come up with a plan to fight it because I cannot sleep all the time. Always seems like there are more things to do than time in the day. I also need to fix a grinder. Oh well.

When is too much?

So with the past week this was on my plate. Three pieces of writing for the new grounds writing guild for their horror collection. Another book soon coming out nothing awe inspiring just a collection of stupid quotes for stupid conversations.  I had to work out how to get the labels for the bath salts. To work on a website for my father. A full time week at the mail center and some cleaning up in my humble apartment has made me go from one thing to another at a rate where I have felt less then my best. My writing did not have the horrifying snap that I would think that it does and nothing I really have been writing has not been feeling like my best.

It was one of those weeks that made you feel like something less then your normal clip which I kinda felt blue over. Time is important so I took a little time to kinda recharge my batteries a bit because with work need growin’ I need to handle it or things will soon fall. So after tonight I am going to turn my dials up to full. Sometimes I just have to refocus my energies before making more progress.

I think some of the things that I may try is to get more grassroots advertising. Try to get people interested in to looking to my stuff and then things can get moving.

Time is sacred and no one knows how much time is left on their lifespan so using it to do the most you can makes the most sense in my world. I just need to make sure I keep myself in the sweet spot between doing just enough and burning out. So now we can bring you to your regular scheduled progress.

Progress update 7/30

Alison learning was finished for now and know I have three diplomas. One in customer service sciences, and yes there is such a thing. Another in children’s studies going over how children of different ages react and learn and the methods of the past that has been shown to be somewhat reliable for that. The last is in probability so I can at least tell what my odds are when I try to do something. It may not mean anything to add to the resume, but the set up was easy to continue while being very informative.

Magic wise we are still having issues, but a lot more have been ironed out. Soon after that we will be advertising the revamp and getting all that stuff set up is taking a lot of time out of the night. It is going to be fun at grand prix starting in less then ten days.

Advertising wise the youtube channel will also be advertised with the e-book so I got a lot to learn about the next few weeks.

Doing some more writing to get more experience.

Shirt designs have been on the back burner.

One needs to get the most of opportunities.
One also needs more time in the day and more caffine.
Good luck all.

3 months in goal check.

So I say the word dreams so much it is kinda funny. However, it is a concept I do believe in. So as one cannot preach without practicing it. Here is how things are looking after three months.

Cookbook – Pictures still going

Cooking blog – Practicing recipes on this blog

Mtg Grand Prix – Training

Get more social – All this noise

Youtube channel – Eleven videos and counting

Work on my inventions : All my progress has been transcribed and running in a journal. Slowed due to fundage

Zazzle : Logic that’s why is the most popular shirt and I am getting a small trickle of sales ( A couple here and there) Currently working on a batch of final fantasy designs.

Back burner:

Recording – Need better equipment

Pro wrestling training – Saving for it

Writing for funds – Learning that aspect

Draw more – Working slowly on it

L.o.l team – Still one short but we are still practicing 😀

As you can see there is a lot I am trying for. Gotta go big when your on your last life.

With that in mind how are you doing with your dreams since the beginning of the new year? I hope you all ( I am legit surprised to see that between just on the wordpress page. I have close to 200 subscribers Thanks for everything so far and if we can hit 250 I am going to do my best to come up with a couple really good.

As the Year Goes On

So at the beginning of the year most of us made resolutions to keep ourselves on track with a specific goal. As the time goes on some of us are closer while others are less so. As it stands I have a lot of things coming including a new set of shirts on zazzle, new videos oncoming within a couple days ( Planet of Gratuitous Sarcasm for table gaming videos ) New pictures on deviant art, and a new recipe with a story behind it in the next post ( The Earned Sandwich). Writing is still going on and pictures have begun for the cookbooks.

How was your year everybody. Have you made progress toward your causes?

A New Year comes..

Over the past year I had done quite well with my resolution. I had gotten further to my goals then any other year before hand. On top of that I managed to stay off the streets so that is a plus ( A few weeks in 2012, I had gotten a good camping experience in the urban realm so to speak.)

With the new year once again I wish to get closer to my goals. So that would be my resolution and what that means is a bunch of smaller things I am aiming for because if your going to make a resolution, might as well go big.

Da list

Get cookbook published

Get a MtG Grand Prix or Pro Tour top 8 finish

Start my cooking blog

Start my cooking videos

Get pro wrestling training

Make enough money of my writing to have as a job

Draw more (100 for the number)

Make money off the zazzle store

Get more social

Hold executive chef status  – ( I have been every thing else including baker and dessert chef, but the big hat seems to elude me)

Get in to more cooking competitions

L.o.L team gets set up and starts winning tournaments

Get my music recorded ( small project just to do it)

Make a couple new inventions

Get in better shape

Ya. It’s a list of stuff to do. Joyous 

Got to keep going big. Use your typing instruments to tell me your big goal for the year. If we can help each other then next year all of our resolutions may just come true.
