Phew. What an insane couple of weeks. I’ve done lack of sleep before in my life, but it feels more like the first 6 months of this year have been non-stop.
Work has been a downhill slide lately, customers have been leaving, contracts have slowed (not gone, but GREATLY scaled back), and after hours put in to try and bring things back up and build, I am beat. Tired. Exhausted. Throw in a soon to be 3 years old… Yowza. I’m sleepy.
It’s nearly midnight. This brings about June, the halfway point of this year and honestly? I’m a little discouraged. I know part of it is quite simply my batteries are dead. I’m wiped. Physically and Emotionally. I need a real vacation but sadly with a dip in projects, contracts, and customer payments, it’s not easy at all to say “Let’s go play!” but I’m going to try. Wife is off work soon, and I’m going to go off and “play”.
Vacations are not normal for me because of one simple reason, I’m never off the clock. I’ve mapped out data access, I have the following access while traveling:
- Cricket (AT&T)
- Project Fi (Sprint/T-Mobile)
So looking at the maps, even if I have to bust out a broken Verizon Phone, I can, but hoping that things are mellow-ish, but even over the next 48 hours I’ve got some projects to put some hours into and hopefully folks pay promptly.
I’m trying to fire up my sites, however my biggest problem is quite simply content. I could write volumes about other companies, but it comes to my own? My words are gone. I need to find a good time to just write, in fact I am going to try and write some tonight and get Flock done, but Thrust is another bird all-together.
Lots to do, no real gumption to do it, looking for some good tools to help organize and get things together, Bear does a good job, but sadly its not cross platform to Linux/Windows/Android, if it made apps I could sync my info via Dropbox and access things on other platforms? Oh I’d be in love and use it even more.
I’m going to wrap up, eyes are getting sleepy, going to try starting June off with some sleep, or at least try to! Happy June!
