Time realignment, a new schedule, and a few more things to come. Welcome to this night’s post of Life 2.0.
What happened between Day 12 and… whatever day it is today?
I have experienced great difficulty this week to post on a nightly basis because of a few work-related events that have seemingly drained me of all my physical and mental capabilities to the point that I just sleep when I arrive home.
This week in the office, I had experienced my first all-nighter in the studio. I had shots that were airing the next day which meant I had to finish them that night. The catch is that, the next morning, I have a client meeting at 9am. Immediately after that, I had to return to the studio to help with the other shots that were supposed to be primed for the airing of that night.
It was all well and good. The studio was able to make it in time for airing. On the plus side, it was a short celebration for us that night because it was the “scheduled” initiation of the new team members and also a late celebration of one of the teammates.
After what seemed to be the longest day I’ve had in the studio, I went home and fell asleep and hoped to wake up early the next morning to get things done. Sad to say, I couldn’t. I took a few more extra hours of sleep just to get back the many hours I’ve lost.
The past few days were completely repetitive and so routine that it was hard to distinguish a day from the other according to memory. That brings us on to the next topic for tonight.
I’ve recently noticed my inability to track the dates as accurately as I did before. I couldn’t remember which night I had posted Day 12 and which day it is today. As far as I could remember, the 15th of May was supposed to be Day 14 because I was planning to write a Week 2 post. I’ve been too busy and too tired to write anything that would have made sense to any of those who would take their sweet time reading the rambles of this estranged illusionist.
Apparently, I am not the only one experiencing this phenomenon. It had also been occurring to my workmates. Some claim to have lost count of the days that go by and what day of the week it is. Some are a few days late in their memory, thinking it was the day from a few days ago. And a few more couldn’t remember how the last few days had transpired.
This is a very disturbing occurrence for me since I am very dependent on the schedules that I have put in place. If I overshoot them, things would go badly in the long run and I wouldn’t be in a good position to take care of myself and others properly.
Having lost the sense of longer spans of time is something for me to be concerned of. Each week that passes by can and might count as a lost opportunity for me to do something about my current situation. I wouldn’t want to run into delays in my plans because that would mean that I would have great difficulties trying to make idea and reality meet.
I only have a few decades to live on this earth, I’d like to make the earliest moments count. I’d have to prepare for Life 3.0.
New Post Schedules
I continue to think about many things when my mind is out somewhere during my commute. Some are worth sharing, but most are not. Condensing the really good ones on a slightly lengthier weekly post might make a better blog post than what I normally write.
I’ve already tested out my potential to write in this volume of somewhere between 600 and 1300 words per posting. I think that I have grown comfortable writing at those lengths and that my mind has adjusted somehow to sustain longer and more complex thoughts as I progress with the writing I have been doing. Most of these are straight from my own personal accounts of the events and is hence mostly my rambling. These blog posts are sparingly edited.
Right now, I’ve been posting almost every night for the past sixteen days. While it was all fun trying to write lengthy accounts of the events of each day, I think that it would be more meaningful to wind this blog down to a weekly post about what happened during the week.
As for what I’ll be doing during the nights that I’m not asleep and not writing for Life 2.0, I’ll be focusing on writing a few more blogs or rather, stories. I have a few ideas lined up that I wish to develop through writing. You will see them as the weeks go by. They will also be weekly releases. It is in my hopes that I can get the chapters to acceptable qualitative standards when I develop the stories.
I hope that you watch out for the entries that I will be posting soon!
Hi, I’m Lou, and this is the end of Day 16, or as it will now be called: Week 2.
