August 27th, 2019 – 335

Target already hit. Nope I’m not joking, I hit target in between people coming to my desk for enrolment. It is almost as if when I’m well rested and I don’t have people sitting behind me, I can hit target in no time at all, and still be 100% on top of my work. Go figure, whoever would have known.

Ok slight snark aside, it’s nice to feel in control this week, and while yes, I won’t be in this situation forever, it does mean I have reason to push for – should any office reorganisation take place – me not being in the middle where I feel a bit too vulnerable to focus. Open plan offices man, they are not the greatest. Still never mind about that, right now I can relax knowing I’ll get a super early night tonight.

It helps that yesterday I wrote 1,000 words in the form of the mini essay I uploaded to here. I did not do VOL, and forcing myself to break my story-chain and do a more leisurely 1K helped in a big way. I knew it would, I’ve proved that time and time again over this project. So now I need to be more disciplined about that, and maybe look into my last day before going back to work being a “write something at 12pm, even if it’s not story content” to correct my routine on that day.

Right, back to work, and then who knows beyond that. I am out of mobile data for the month, but I might buy a new slate of data tonight. That isn’t cheap so I do not take it lightly, but I think I’ll regret it if I don’t. More importantly, I am going to get myself broadband again at last. I managed to avoid it for eight months, but it was never going to be a long term solution. Still, saved me a fortune.
