Accomplished Much?


So here we are, my two weeks off work are nearly up.

On one hand I am a little disappointed with myself that I really didn't do too much. I wanted to write a lot more; the creative writing course, this blog, other stuff, but I really didn't do much at all. That is annoying but I don't have any excuse so I'm not going to beat myself up about it.

I did spend time painting the minis I wanted to paint. I just need to do the bases tomorrow and then everything is all sorted and done. I originally was going to go to a game day tomorrow so I'd have had them all done in time for that too. So despite not doing that I hit the deadline I'd set myself.

I'll also more than likely finish Red Dead by the end of the weekend. The main story and a bulk of the side quests at least. I've done some of the collectible missions, but not everything. Thats stuff that can be done whenever.

Other than going to Brighton last week we really didn't go and do much, but to be honest, thats fine. We're both quite tight on money so shouldn't spend it frivolously, hell, I think I've spent less than £25 this entire week.

Sara had to work a lot and had a bunch of unforeseen stuff come up too, like her car breaking down and her having to stay in one of her hotel rooms last night, so we haven't spent as much time together as I'd have liked, but at this time of year, that shit just happens.

So overall a bit of a mixed bag. I've certainly enjoyed my time off and not having to get up at the crack of dawn, but when I inevitably get asked all week, "Oh, did you get up to much on your time off?" I really won'r have anything interesting to tell them.

Eh, life doesn't always have to be super exciting, sometimes simple and content is fine.
