Honestly this update couldn't be any more opposite to last month's! Considering these updates talk about the month behind, and how things have been going for me professionally and/or personally; There is a lot to say about July, but then conversely not that much to say about August.
That is really weird to me, but I guess things have to balance out somehow. I worked five times harder in July, and then in Aug I worked five times less hard. Rested the first two weeks, and over the month started playing Octopath Traveler. A phenomenal game, but certainly a huge timesink. There was one Tuesday this month I literally spent the entire day playing. I do not recommend that behavior though.
What am I doing... NOW? September 2022
I was talking to a friend on Sunday, and he said "you know things just work out for me". I quite align with that notion as well, I think I must get it from my mom, but I am able to be resourceful in many ways. As the saying goes too it is not always what you know, but who you know. Given my connections I've been making connections with new clients, establishing more of a baseline in some areas, etc.
I picked up two more clients to help out the financials, and they sort of just popped up recently anyways. I'm gonna try to run karaoke as much as I can too, and I have three tabs open right now to apply for some remote jobs. In the end I'm making enough to get by at least.
Not ideal, as I would like to save up and pay off any debt. However you gotta do what you gotta do.
In a bigger view #MACRO, What's Coming up
I swear if I do not get off my ass and get these upcoming posts out and done, I'm not going to forgive myself. All freaking year I've been pushing these back one reason or another. One big one is that some of the content is based around my Notion Templates, in which case are close to being release ready, but not necessarily.
Meaning I have to make them publicly open (at least the free ones), the paid one on gumroad or something, and then make content around those templates.
That has been what the hold up is about really, and the thing is that isn't that hard to do. I just have been procrastinating. I also have a collection of posts around polymathy, that I feel are truly unique. The topics will greatly help with SEO, and that people in the space would appreciate the unique trains of thought.
I've been sowing the seeds for a future phase centered around music, by posting my karaoke videos on Instagram. I think that this is a good way for people to know that I can actually sing, and who knows what can come of those being out there.
Plus I just needed to post to instagram more anyways.
