2 hours of okami
read plush instructions.
work out

my mood is better this night (2/20) but worried I'm gonna have insomnia and tomorrow will be fubar lazy/ no energy or focus again. :/

10am: my mood is pretty good! i'm a tad sleepy, but I think I can work through it. Workout today is yoga, I feel kinda stiff. Made pancakes. PUG SUPER EXCITED. If I can keep my self focused I think today will be good. Need to decide where we are gonna go for dinner though.

2/20 - house bound

- My own profile custom cuteness

QA work
- poke dev again about issues.

- Start next Sew Desu Ne/CholyKnight plushie
- Embroidery image ???
- Do some art??? Finish the painting for realz

   - Laundry
   - Dishes
   - Vacuum

Focus today is to keep busy in my activities and chores. Try and turn my mood around, whatever is causing it.
I hope to do that by just getting stuff done. ''

8:00am I feel slow and sluggish this morning, So we will see what happens. I need to the very least get all my house chores done and start the CSS project, and poke at the dev about the bugs.

10:11am Got the dishes done, the bedroom and hallway vacuumed, and laundry is now in the dryer, however I feel super exhausted and really want to curl up and nap. I think I'll chill out and snooze some after I get the laundry from the dryer, since it'll be about 11 then, and still early enough it the day I wont screw everything up by napping. Then I should have some energy and focus to start on the profile CSS stuff. I think I'll do it from scratch and try to still as little code as possible for it.

I also really want to not take an allergy pill today. See how well that goes for me.

2:51pm: I'd much rather feel listless and shit and ablet o do something than this BS of no energy. I at least got the clean laundry in the apartment, but not put away yet. I started doing some CSS stuff, altering a few things. is it done well right now? No, but it is a start. I'll keep pecking away at it in weird chunks, and organize it better later. I wish I knew where the hell this strange mood came from.

Feb. 18th, 2017

I feel very restless this evening. And hungry but not hungry?? I just want to wat but no real reason for eating. Never full really??? but not super hungry at any specific time???

I'm worried I'm going into a depression episode. How blah I feel and nothing exciting or holding my attention really. I wanted to play a game, but no games where what I wanted, I stated a movie, and it wanst very good (in all honesty, it wasn't. Not really what I expected and not something I would watch out of the blue, so that's not a great since). I really want to do something, but I don't know what. Crochet sounds good, but I Don't know what I would make. I wish I had some sort of embroidery image to do, it sounds relaxing and enough of a thing to engage my brain, but also easy enough I could watch some TV listlessly. Something easy for my hands to do.

Tomorrow I have plans to go hang out with someone, so I hope that'll help get me out of the funk. It'll  be important to pick things to do and stick to them, even if takes me a while to do. It's very good.

Also really hoping to get out of the house and see some people. Really to just get out of the house for an extended period. It's rather nice out right now.

5:26pm: none of this happened, instead the day was pretty much getting ready and hanging out with a friend. So I suppose this will be my list of stuff monday. (plus laundry) 


QA work
    - MOBILE with new UI stuff (matching game and main thing)
    - check some matching game bugs


Open the windows. It'll probably be nice out.

1:12pm: yeah, it's really nice out. Did some yoga this morning, then went with hubs and the dog to check the bike for the key. The key was in it (whew) and then dropped the dog off and went out for lunch. Hubs is still feeling a little sick, but the headache is more bothersome to him now. He still has low energy.

Allergies are kicking my butt today though D:

I checked the bugs and they still happen, so asking dev about them.


- that green color in text still
- can I get the FULL background black???
- on roll-over animation stuff for the villager icons???

Watch a movie on CR


Work out

QA work

I worked a but more on the painting, and I feel like I ruined it the other day. Spots are not "this could be touched up better" but "this was done very poorly" I'm still going to try and finish putting in the background, because good practice, but ew. But that's what practice is for right?? There's a few things I think I would do differently next time. So looking forward to that.I think I'll pull out the larger sketch book and draw some more of the characters in there and stuff before trying another illustration kind of piece.

11:04am: i got some CSS stuff done, and by done I mean C/Ping code snippets for what I want. And then going "no wonder I had trouble figuring it out myself, thats like seven layers in" Like I was close to having it on my own, I was missing like one more level up.  ALSO ITS HOVER not MOUSE OVER. sigh lol

12:05pm: I've stopped trying to get the background to change completely, and just handed the code over to the person who requested it. I think  next I will do custom background for myself on another character. Hubs is home sick again today. Not as bad as yesterday though, but it still means my groove/TV access is off. I think I'm going to do some art/sewing before getting to some QA work. There's some broken items I need to bug devs about (Is this something that can be fixed right now, or is it broken because something isnt in yet, but will be soon)


  - do someting about the boarder around the comments
  - that green color in text still
  - VILLAGER: NAME  text at the top

Watch a movie on CR

Work out

10:20am: I showed what I had so far for the person, and they wer really impressed and liked it! It makes me feel good about it! Even though I look at it and go "ugh so much needs to be done" they see how fantastic it is. (This is why a second pair of eyes is always great to have)

Hubs is home rather sick today, so my whole mojo is thrown off. I'm gonna do my best to keep it in check and get stuff done, but I don't want to make too much noise for him.

12pm: hubs has a low grade fever and still feels like shit. I'm starting to get a little panicky and worried over it. I don't know how much more CSS I'll manage for the day.

7:43pm: certianly did not do more CSS, but because lunch then doctors, then just chilling. Also did not watch any anime, but I moved up all the movies to the top of the queue so I might start one tomorrow.

2/15 Goals

I feel like I have a lot I want to get done, and no idea how to do it all. Trying to not be grumpy, but my throat hurts for no REAL REASON aksjdals and it's raining and chilly. ALSO OMG SO FUCKING ITCHY I TOOK ALLERGY PILL WHY LKSJDFLDSKJFSD

   - Finish the coding, start messing with image background non-sense
Today is an Art day.
- Either work on the watercolor
   - doodle some more scenes or characters out in the sketchbook
House Chores
   - Clean the kitchen. It's gotten rather gross.
   - Take out boxes and paper. It's a huge pile DO IT
   - Grocery store. Need dinner and lunch stuff. And Bananas.

Not sure what else. But if I can actually mark all these off, today will have been and productive.

11:44am: Took some of the trash out, and started the CSS stuff. Right now I am doing the background image. I have it in and sized, but I need to get the repeating to stop and want it centered. After that, .clearfix h1 color, comment box color, .forum-posts p color. I'm going to take a break and do something else for a bit, so those are my reminder notes.

8:30pm: still have not read that blog post. Did a tiny bit of water color, feeling like I've definately vered into "im now ruining this", but going to continue on. I at least want it to be a FINISHED piece. Ruined or not.

I think I've done all the CSS stuff I had planned for the day?? so yay me???

What accomplishments?

I have not done anything producitve for days. Any while it felt nice to not feel "pressure" I can feel myself slipping off of whatever bandwagon/motivation that I had started with.  Like I dont WANT to stop doing stuff, I want to keep going, but I also want time to just... do nothing and watch tv. So really I think that means I need to adjust my schedule and find new blanace in it.

However the last few days too, my wrist has been hurting. I think it's from too much phone game (and how the laptop angle is when you have it on your lap or tummy on the beanbag. ) I had been reluncatant to do stuff because of it. But the month is half over already and I feel so under accomplished.

It's rainy and dreary out today, after being some nice mid 50 to 60 dergee weather. But since last week I've had some crazy allergies and lots of sneezing and running nose. Which has made my thoat sore with post-nasal drip. The allergy pills I take normally don't seem to be helping a ton. I keep wondering if it's a cold (because of the crazy 20+ degree shift lately too) but I haven't felt anyworse (no fever, no real general ugh feeling), just itchy nose, sneezing and runny nose. Somedays there were a lot of sneezing that made me feel blah, but still not enough to say "I am sick". Lucky I guess?

Crafting Summary:
I had started a wallet from a pattern, while I don't think the final product is going to look well, it was a fun project. I thought it would take me like a week, but I had just not been working on it at a good pace. I screwed up on it yesterday and in the process of undoing seams. I don't know what I'm going to do with the wallet when I'm done. I'll see if someone on FB wants the hideous thing. But I'm making it so I have something to enter in the "contest" and get the discount on a plush pattern I want. I was hoping to get the wallet done AND work on another plush for the contest, but I don't think I'll get there in time.

I've also had the urge to embroider. I think because it's a small "in your lap" project and I feel like there's been a lot of down time in Conan (waiting for it to load) and it was just a nice little thing. I, however, have no idea WHAT to embroider.

CSS Sumary:
Hubs sat down with me and I learned some tricks to help me find items. It was good. I found the problem with the issues that were bothering me, and it's looking good. Well good enough. I haven't started messing with any sort of position changing of the content. The layout is still pretty much the same, just different colored. I would like to get it done by the end of the week. I have a few more things to change on it (comment section) and find some sort of image background. I think that's all pretty do-able. If I actually work on it.

Art Summary:
I'm closer to the little picture being done. I knew it would take me a while to get it done (part of the nature of water color and letting it air dry, and me trying to not just rush it) but I feel like it's taken a little longer than I would have liked. I really only have the forest background left to do on it. But other than that, I have not really been doing any other art. I need to drag the sketchbook back out and try to do more in it again. At least work on sketching out new scenes or something.

Game Summary:
I haven't played much Okami since that one day last week. I don't feel super bad about it, but knowing it's a Thing I Want To Get Done, I know I need to keep at it to get it done. I have less than 10 beads left. I finished Waku shrine and need to get the beads that all unlocks. Hopefully I can get 9 and 10 now. I dont know why this save didn't have them, but another one did. Other than that, I haven't made any progress on other Games to Complete.

Anime Summary:
I've finished Space Brothers! They left it on a bit of a cliff-hanger, but not such a terrible one that I hate where it ended, just would like to have more. I haven't picked what anime to start next. None have really grabbed my attention yet, but there's a few live action series on Netflix I would like to do too, so one of them i watched like two more episodes of, and another have about one episode left. I'm worried about not finishing them before they get removed, so I might focus on those while I still hem and haw about the next anime to watch.


I think this is a rather good idea. Doing a Bi-Monthly Review. Like the 15th and last day of the month. A good little summary thing. 
Did not end up doing a lot yesterday. Today I won't either.

SNuggle the pug to keep him chill, and my wrist hurts. I think it's from too much phone gaming >.> I found a cute dress up game and WANT TO GET ALL THE THINGS
but this has not been swell for my hand. I tied to keep it chill yesterday, buuuutttt didn't have totall success. Even sleeping with my night brace on all night it's still really sore today. So all day brace wearing and trying to not play (but when I do play left handed)

I do need to do some
grocery shopping

I feel like I should try and do some CSS stuff, but other than reading I'm trying to stay off the computer too
