Phoenixking 748 Posted May 20, 2020 Author Share Posted May 20, 2020 Detox day -2. "Terrace." Friends of ours came by yesterday. It was nice to feel a semblance of normal life again. Just a sliver. We're headed to my SO's parents today. We'll spend the night there. Hopefully I can use that time away from home to get a lot of work done. A change of environment seems healthy. I'll be receiving the feedback on my pitch today. I feel like there was a receptive response. I also learned about a grant the city hands out to starting companies in their first 2 years. If the city counsel thinks you got your shit together, and can show your business and financial plans they give out 5k. That'd be huge for me. That would cover almost the entire marketing costs! I'd need about 7k for that but I can get the 2k from my savings. I feel like it's going to be worth the risk. I can build this thing! I've been gaming but I don't feel like it's absorbing too much of my attention. I'm just a bit worried about the state of my brain. Porn and games fuck up your human CPU, man. At least, that's what I think/fear. Do you know about that idle creative moment? Like, how the best ideas come to you when you're driving, showering or on the toilet? I love those moments. But games tend to crawl their way into my idle thoughts. Today I'm trying to get rid of the bugs. I'm riddled with bites. My SO isn't. Something about hormones and pheromones. The entire place got cleaned yesterday, dishes done, floors scrubbed, the whole shebang. My SO freaks out when people come over. She'll shriek, drop everything and turn into a cleaning, bossy tornado. I don't like it, but it sure does get the job done. So today I'll be venting the entire place first. Then I'll go room by room to clear the fuckers out with a vaccuum cleaner to suck them up and use a little anti-mosquito/bug-device that spreads poison when plugged into the socket. It might seem crazy or overkill. But they keep waking me up at night when they bite or sting me and it's driving me up the walls... Recent highlight: Having friends over last night and enjoying cocktails. Budget status: Sucks that we're almost through our monthly budget. But we did buy a lot and freeze it. The freezer's almost full. And we bought a part of a pig. A healthy, happy animal that got treated well and would only get killed when every single part of it has been sold. It's like reverse-crowdfunding meat. So we'll need to eat everything in our freezer to make room. My one goal for the next 24h: De-clutter the living room. What did I read today: Nothing yet, but probably a bit more of 'Life's a Pitch'. My chore of the day: I have no idea. How I spent the 1 hour of focus progresssing my business today: Am probably going to do mails and shit. Maintained habits: -Daily Japanese lesson - I'll get around to it sometime today. -Make the bed - Nope. In bed right now. -Drink enough water - Had a bottle already, but not keeping track right now. -Brush teeth two times a day, floss and clean once a day - Not yet. But there's no way I'm going to my in-laws with nasty teeth. -Less daydrinking at home alone - Well, we weren't home alone last night! Come to think of it, it's been over 2 months since I last had a night alone. -Meditation - Nope. -Exercise once this week - Didn't exercise. The bathroom and shower were too nasty. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
