TWC is still buggy, so here's the Blooper Reel comic for this week.

Well, the meetings are done, trip planning is close (should have the rest taken care of over the weekend), and I've made some progress on pretty much everything else. Though there's still a lot I want to get done over the next couple of weeks. Sigh... This is not the most relaxing start of a summer break. Doesn't help that taking care of Zack really limits my working hours. To some extent, I kind of miss the days when I could just spend 10 - 12 hours a day working on things non-stop. Can't say I ever really enjoyed it when that happened, but sometimes it was worth it to get a lot done in a short time. Now, it's not really an option.

Anyway, I should get some sleep (Zack is still causing some problems in that area as well) then get back to it.

Have a good weekend!

5/23/2018 Last day

Once today's meetings are finished, I'm finally completely and totally on summer break. Well, if you don't count that online course development I'm doing for the university, but that's mostly on my own schedule and doesn't require going into campus. How's everything else going? Well, said course development is pretty far along and I have more than enough done for the next "due date". That said, there's a moderate amount of work remaining and I'd honestly like to get most/all of it out of the way before my upcoming trip so I don't have to worry about it later in the summer. Speaking of the trip, I'm around a third of the way through the remaining travel planning. I'm hoping to have it all finished by the end of the week. Or maybe the weekend. I probably need another 2 - 3 days worth of work (or one full day, which probably isn't happening) to finish it. And the Aurora's Nightmare demo? The scenes are coming together nicely and I'm happy with the pace (wish I had more time to work on it, but it moves fairly quickly when I do), though going by nothing but the script, I've still got a ways to go. At this point though, I know what I'm doing and it's a pretty simple process. Just takes time. Other than that... Just some assorted things to get setup in preparation for the move into out new place in July. Nothing too time consuming, I just need to get around to doing it.

And that's that. Now, let's see about those meetings...


5/21/2018 T-minus three weeks

What's in three weeks? This year's summer vacation. I'll go into details sometime soon. For now, I'm just trying to get as much as I can done before then. We'll "only" be gone for three weeks, which is on the short side for my summer trips, but we'll also have a lot going on here in Virginia once we get back.

Anyway, what's happening right now? Not a lot. I've mostly been focused on finishing up the semester (totally done with that now) and taking care of Zack. Haven't had much time to play games, but I've been trying to keep up on TV shows. Haven't quite managed that either, but I'm close and, with most of the current seasons coming to an end, it shouldn't take too much longer to catch up on the rest. Not really sure what more to write about. West World is pretty amazing. It's one of my new favorite shows, in fact. But I really can't say much about it without spoilers and it's very much M / R rated. Not quite on the level of Game of Thrones, but close enough. If that doesn't bother you though, I highly recommend it.

Anyway, now that finals are over, I should make rapid progress on my to-do list (Aurora's Nightmare included) and get a bit more inclined to come up with something interesting to write about.
