Whats Going On

August 9, 2018

Oops, forgot about this blog for a few days. My workflow nearly wiping out my main website directory took the wind out of my sails a bit.

Haven’t done much lately. Put another couple dozen hours into Zelda 9. Streamed a bit of it, and that was fun. Need to do that more. Nintendo is starting to put ads on every single video featuring a Nintendo game, so I can’t host them on YouTube anymore. Been uploading them to archive.org, but I don’t know if anyone is actually seeing them. But a few people did hang out for the Zelda stream, which is fun. It’s just hard when, despite my best efforts, people who have played the game still insist on spoiling things, and I don’t want to be an asshole and silence them, so I just end up not streaming new games at all.

The bluetooth stack I installed just stopped working. No reason. It just doesn’t work anymore. I haven’t been playing PC games anyway, but after the mental energy I put into that it’s another disappointment. I’ve just been using wired headphones since I haven’t been bothered to delete the Toshiba stuff and get my old bluetooth working again.

My mental state in general hasn’t been great. I’m thinking of asking for reduced hours at work. I think it would help a lot with my stress and anxiety. My expenses aren’t huge, so if I could work 20 or 30 hours a week and have more time to take care of myself and work on my own projects, I think that would be big for me. What I’ve got going on now clearly isn’t working. Guess we’ll see.
