So, I guess this is just another update post. I feel like I do more of these than actual reviews and stuff. There has been so much going on here in Dj’s World and it truly is entirely my fault. I, at this point have taken on so many tasks, and have so many things I want to get done that I just have totally spaced writing every day. Honestly, I feel like I am neglecting one thing or another. Which has not helped my mental health….like at all.
For example, one of the many things I have been doing is writing a short story or book. I don’t know which. I had a dream about it and wanted to write it down because it was such an interesting concept to me. That is where a lot of my time has been going. I just start and I can’ t seem to stop myself. I get carried away. I also try to find time daily to read a little bit. In fact, I just finished a book I was reading, but that is another thing that I can’t seem to stop once I start.
Then, my family and I play DND every Friday night, so we have to put a little bit of time into arranging those sessions. In that regard, my brother (who usually DMs) wants to play a character and no one else in our group wanted to take over DMing, so I told him I would try my best to come up with something. Which if you haven’t ever played DND, it takes so much time to essentially create a world. I just started with that this morning, but my brother said that he spends A LOT of time preparing things for the week. That doesn’t even include the time it took him to get started, so that is another HUGE project, I decided to take on.
I also do a lot of scrapbooking, and have a few pen pals, so I need to get on writing to them and such. I have baby books that I have been making for my kids for like the past year and I would really like to get those done sometime in the near-ish future. I also starting making them handmade blankets. Which if you were unaware, I have four mini humans running around my house like savages. So, there is a lot of time there. Which also if you were unaware children, especially toddlers, require so much attention it is impossible to do anything, and I have four of them in my house during the week days. I watch my nephew while my brother is at work, and sometimes he has to work 12 hour days so I have my nephew most of the day. I have a 4 year old, 2 1/2 year old, and two 1 year olds that require all the attention (especially my nephew). He really eats everything. He took a nice chunk out of my flip flop the other day. That was interesting anyway…on top of all that my daughter has homework a lot of days and I sit down with her to do those after school and that usually takes another hour (she procrastinates a lot).
Of course, I also fell down the rabbit hole of Harvest Moon, so I have been playing that quite a bit. This is another thing that involves time getting away from me. I will sit down and decide I will play for an hour, next thing I know 4 have passed. This one is entirely my fault. Harvest Moon games are my kryptonite. I should have known I wouldn’t be able to resist that one.
Finally, my family and I decided that we were going to add another addition to our already crazy family. So, I starting looking around animal shelters for another cat. I couldn’t help myself. It took me like three days to decide if I wanted to adopt or foster an animal, but I don’t think I could go through fostering. I would end up adopting them all or having a breakdown once they got adopted. I am not good with bittersweet emotions. So, we finally narrowed it down, and we are setting up meet and greets to see our potential addition.
Of course, all of these things are just my extras during the day. That doesn’t include the massive amounts of cleaning, laundry, and other household tasks I have to do every day. So I guess the point I am trying to make is I am trying to do my best at juggling and it’s not going so well at this time. It is hard to find time to sit down and watch something, let alone sit down and analyze said show I am trying to watch. It is difficult to finish up anime and manga and games in a week before it is time to hop on to the next one. S
Well, I guess that is it for this little rant/update. For anyone who stuck around long enough to read all this. Thank you. I know that I don’t know when to shut up and I ramble way too much so this was probably excruciatingly boring. So, I will do my best…so for now…I’ll see you guys in the next one.
