Sunday!

I slept in today after 8 am and it was lovely. I almost wanted to sleep longer, but then I remembered I had YThings to do, so I woke and started working on them. At this point, I’m essentially awake and up for the day. I just need to shower.

I had a pretty productive day yesterday once I got home. I spent the afternoon reading a short book I think I’ve talked about before here (yes, actually, fairly recently in the A to Z challenge), and I got Ideas from that. There’s actually a lot of stuff out there about failure, and how failure isn’t the opposite of success, but rather a stepping stone on the path to success, so I spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out how “failure” looks on YouTube.

Aside from the obvious “nobody watches your videos and you stop making content,” because that’s not a thing you can control.

Because most people set goals in terms of subscribers, or view counts, and you can’t control those. You can only control the content and frequency of what you upload.

So I have a script that I think I might try this morning before the sun comes out (if the sun comes out), as well as a channel trailer, which is apparently a thing people do. We’ll see how things go.

I also have some paperwork I need to collect and assemble and mail out, so I’ll spend some time on that this afternoon, after lunch, I think.

Aaaand…I think that might be it!

I’m excited to have a work holiday tomorrow. We haven’t got any plans right now, but I’m sure it’ll be a relaxed day. I should get the hamburger down today and make burgers tomorrow. I’m not confident I can make good ones. The last ones we had were from a We Ship You Meat company, and probably much better quality than I can whip up from the hamburger from the store, but I can try.

Happy Sunday!

I hope you have a great day!

And if you don’t have a great day, I hope you have a good day.

And if you don’t have a good day, I hope tomorrow is better.

Loves!

I’m pleased with my streak

I’m pleased with the length of the streak that I’ve been able to maintain, and so I may, at some point soon, stop focusing on keeping it going. That’s not to say that I will let the streak go, just that it’s a possibility. It was neat to keep it up for a month, and I don’t really have any need to keep it longer than that. So we’ll see. That’s a thing.

I have some alone time today, and I really, really needed it. I’m in a house with my family, whom I love, four cats and a bird, who are all very adorable, but I am an introvert and I am getting much, much, much less alone time than usual. Normally I have time after the kids have gone to bed, but they’re going to bed later and later, and my youngest has started wanting to sleep in the same room as I. It’s not that I want to do anything that shouldn’t be done in the same room as my kid, it’s just that I don’t want to worry about bothering the kid when they should be asleep.

I know, there’s some parenting skills in that paragraph that I need to address. I will, at some point, but it’s difficult. Parenting is hard, probably for everyone, but right now, it feels especially hard for me. I’ll get better at it as things go along.

So anyway. I’m getting my alone time, and it’s super helpful.

Let’s see. What else?

I would like to film today but I don’t have any ideas so that may not happen. I filmed yesterday afternoon, but I’m not sure I’ll use that. I need to re-watch it to make sure I didn’t say anything problematic. I talked about my Day Job a bit and how because of that I’ve been paying a lot more attention to local politics, and I went into some stuff that I know is controversial. I don’t want my channel to be like that, if I can help it, so I may skip that one. We’ll see.

I do plan on doing quite a bit of brainstorming and research for YouTube, though. I’ve already done a lot, and I’ve picked up quite a bit of good stuff. I just want to get everything in one place instead of scattered throughout a journal, which worked fine when I did that, but I’m almost done with that journal and so I’d like to start another.

The rest of the day is up in the air. There’s some paperwork that I need to sign and return, and that’s going to be a big part of this evening and tomorrow. Everything will work out. Just going to do my best and keep moving forward, because that’s all a person can do right now.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you’re having a great day. 🙂

And if you’re not having a great day, I hope you’re having an okay day.

And if you’re not having an okay day, then I hope tomorrow is better for you.

Loves!
