Late post, looking forward

I owed you one of these last week, didn't I?

Sorry, been a somewhat busy week



Spent a good deal of time working with an acquaintance, helping him shift his company over the Alphabet overlords for his email. That, combined with a passing down of a little bit of technology, means that I'm now writing this post on my new Chromebook, an Asus Flip C302. It's an interesting look at the direction that this part of the computer space is likely to move; I like the ability to pick up and play games on my machine and grabbed one of my old favorites to replay through.

And the week was bracketed by birthday celebrations: my girlfriend celebrated her birthday at a bar with a bunch of her friends last Saturday, and I had some of the people who won't be able to make the official party next week over to my place for board games.

I got some writing done, but not enough. That's something I'm looking to remedy in this coming week.

I decided to do something for myself and take off the entire week of my birthday. It's not something I've ever done before. Hells, there have been a good number of days where I've worked on my birthday. Plus, I haven't taken a vacation in years. Not a real, "You have the week away from work" vacation." So I've got time on my hands, and need to figure out a good way to spend it.

So. Here's what I want to do: I'm going to try and write one of these recaps every single day of the coming week. I want to have at least one solid "I did a thing" to point to in terms of both getting out and moving as well as writing. I want to turn this coming week into a little writer's retreat for myself.

And if it works, I want to make it a recurring thing. I think it would be good to take the time for myself and do this kind of thing once a year.

So, let's hope I see you tomorrow!
