March 11th, 2021 – 897

Thursday Thursday Thursday, what am I going to do with you? I got a lot of work done at least, but no exercise, and I’m blogging a lot later than I’d like. In part that’s because post-work I dove down a rabbit hole of pixel art. How deep you ask? Well, remember yesterday I did my desk in pixel form…

I may have gotten carried away…

It’s not a fantastic job, a lot of areas like the sofa, the WaterRower and the telescope don’t really look enough like their real world counterparts, or don’t translate all that well into pixels. But the shading on the kitchen and bedroom doors, the curtains, the isometric consistancy and to be honest the feel of the piece all together is, well, for me at least satisfying. I have wanted to draw something like this for a while to have on the blog, as a way to show off my workspaces. My desk by the window is my “creation station”, and my sofa is the “relaxation station”; bedroom is the door by the TV.

This does raise a point I don’t have a good answer for: where is my exercise station? Well in a way, the outside world is meant to be that, my walking and such being my main exercise. The WaterRower lies in the middle of the room for that, and my exercise mat fits in the same space. So yay right? Well as I already said not so yay because I keep blowing off exercise. Not having a working scale doesn’t mean much when I can also say yet again, I ate more calories than I burned, a recurring Thursday theme. Sleep might be fixed but it’s almost like it came at the cost of exercise. That, does not make any sense.

Writing does at least make as much sense as it ever has, and while the home stretch is a while away still I do feel the story reaching the 3/4 mark without the strain that I’ve felt on some recent projects. Actually I’d need to double check that statement for accuracy as I’m getting serious deja vu typing that, but I can at least say the words are coming smoothly at the moment. I just have to hope that is a trend that keeps up. Though honestly, this weekend I think I’ll do the bare minimum and then call it, because I am in serious need of some rest. Might be sleeping better and consistantly, but I am exhausted…
