PS:301 – Creating Something

While I call this “Post Something” I have lately had my drive to create things again, and while I don’t always lately do the creating, I have LOVED kickstarting things! Also, I have done some Patreon for some amazing YouTuber’s who’s content I enjoy.

So for me lately, it’s not just what I’ve created, it’s what I’m helping create, in turn, some of these things help (or will help) me create and fuel my creativity.

I recently got my Hero 101 3D Printer. It’s not great, nowhere near my MP Mini, but honestly for $49 3d printer, once dialed in I imagine it can help in production if needed. 🙂

Photography though has always been a love, and I need to find more time, and too with it exercise a bit more! To that end, one of the most recent is a steady cam for my smartphone! It still has 50 days to go, but it’s already 325% funded – that should be fun for chasing Lilly 🙂 and two other projects should help me with panoramas and 360 shots! There is one for a wearable VR Camera… it’s got my eye, but not my wallet, one to watch, already funded though.

This year I am going to make things happen, the drone will fly again! I will take the camera out, heck with this new fancy iPhone 7 Plus camera I should be able to get some good shots and who knows after taxes and maybe getting hired (fingers crossed) I may save up for a nice new DSLR and sell all my old gear and get something nice 🙂

For now, going to check on this server tune-up and see if I can’t get to sleep soon.

PS:210 – So much for sleep.

I can’t catch a break. Sleep is just not my friend. I’ve not really caught up nor have I finished all the work in-front of me because I’m so tired. I tried switching over to writing as an option to not be stressed over work, and get some content queued up – that was a fail. Wrote a big thing on secure coffee shop internet browsing, like many articles on TFH, nothing much to see yet.

I’m trying warm ramen noodles now, oh yes it’s awesome. 4 minutes delicious ramen from the microwave. I’m on my 2nd serving now as its made me a little sleepy, but not sure if it’ll bring me down.

Part of it is I just have too much on my mind lately, too much to do, and options for more to do that I’m not sure I want to dive into. The computer working issue has been a problem too, but thankfully after some tweaking and adjustments the hackintosh I’ve aptly named “Hackie” has been running a lot smoother, sorted out the hang-up issue with power saving mode – and going to re-work USB access for a set of speakers, and my two drives for backup/storage.

I hope to accomplish a lot this week, I’m pondering making a schedule and locking down time for various projects, not sure if it’ll help – but I have to find some way to get things working smoother, including a block of time to just RELAX or GET OUT – at least once a week if I can wing it, been pondering a drone flight, time lapse, or simply iPhone shooting – weather looks solid:

Hopefully we dip down some, would be nice to not sweat as much as I don’t think any place in town can keep up with my drinking habits 🙂

Well microwave chimed, time to dig in to one last bowl then try to pull a Lilly as I’m heated up, goto sleep. (Works for her!) Night all.

PS:46 – Making Money!

So the drone videos are apparently picking up some minor popularity! I have heard from a few people they are “relaxing” and to boot I’ve got them marked for monetization so as to this point, my projected income is… oh wait for it…. it’s amazing:

$0.09

Cha-Ching! I honestly didn’t set out to make money doing this, the idea was to relax, and share my time attempting to relax with others (except you get a lovely song playing while you watch) – I wish sometimes I could record the sounds around me, the breeze and the birds!

I do have a few ideas for upcoming flights, possibly this weekend! No spoilers, you’ll just have to watch!

PS:20 – Relaxing

Not something I have had a lot of these past few weeks. Work has been just plain insane. I just woke up from a big nap (all I know is it was light when I laid down), and now it’s 9 p.m.

Tonight my goal is to continue picking up my office space, already cleaned my desk, but that’s already helped me relax some as I can once again move my keyboard back and have room for my notebook.

I read an article once about creativity and getting outside to do things, and I’ve done that some. Not to the degree I’d want to mind you, but I really would love just to get out and take a huge walk. (note to self, new pair of walking shoes needed) An outdoor adventure would be great. Meteor shower is out till April, with the pending job, and a pile of work, the long trip may not be ideal till spring break.

I have a lot on my plate at the moment. A lot going on in life, and a lot that I’d love to write about, but probably shouldn’t until it’s a tad more evolved – but hopefully, Sunday/Monday relaxing will occur, I have wanted to take a camera or two and film the sunrise tomorrow morning or Monday morning.

For now, going to finish a few things, then see if my eyes will close again and let sleep come.
