Woke up a bit late, but went straight to preparing coffee and organizing my work. Later I spilt the coffee on my laptop… 😑

Before working though I did some Amazon research to further come closer to finishing my streaming setup at my home office. It was postponed for a bit due to some other needed expenses, but now that I’ve got some money in the bank it’s time to spend again! I ordered a monitor-laptop support, philips hue light bulbs, monopod extension, microhpone support and 3m long cable, cable management tray and, most importantly of all, an UPS to be on the safe side in regards to all my electronics connected to the power supply. I wouldn’t want for my devices to break because of power outages or overvoltages.

Looking forward to the arrival of my needed streaming gear. In the meanwhile, I’m already recording my journey through my weight loss. I hope it comes out right. I’m making sure to not miss one day of training and recording everything. It should be an interesting video in the end. Afterall, I’m a fan of before-after videos and I always wanted to make one of myself. Since I’ve broken my own weight mass record I decided it was the best time to return to the gym and do the intermittent fasting for fast weight loss and coming into very good shape. Expect cool photos shortly haha.

Talking about boxing, today was the second day. Got much more tired compared to yesterday the first day. I think in one week tops I’ll be back in shape and next week be up and running like crazy again with great cardio! I’m just built differently. 😏

That’s all for today though. I’m dead tired, so I’ll be having dinner (intermittent fasting done for today!) and head to sleep.

See you guys tomorrow.

New day, new Monday, new week! Another entire week since the last post. Better late than never. 🤷‍♂️

Woke up feeling rested. Woke up a bit late, but it was necessary. After all I’m gonna be spending a lot of energy today; mental and physical.

Yesterday, after eating a lot at a get together of friends at a restaurant, and later at a friend’s house watching a movie and eating pizza, I made the decision that enough is enough! No more excessive eating! Intermittent fasting starts right now and we go back to the gym! I’ve been accumulating too much fat, which I usually do during winters, but this time I did a bit too much. Also, I’ve been getting very tired of little movements and I’ve noticed I’m kind of dragging my body around, like I’m continuously carrying a backpack of stones! It tires me out!

That’s why I’ve decided to go back to exercising regularly back at my boxing gym. Together with the intermittent fasting I’ll be back in shape in 2 weeks. GUARANTEED.

What else is new? Yeah, finally got paid for a couple of invoices I had been chasing my client for. It’s unacceptable to be depending on the client’s state of being, to get paid only if he feels like it. No, things don’t work that way. You pay me, then I do the work. Moving forward it’s that way or no way. Escrow to the rescue! Let’s see how that one works out.

For this week I’ll be recording a Fight Week, CDOC Embedded videos. It’ll be a very nice way of furthering my videography career and learning new skills, while at the same time helping out the MMA tournament of Catalunya where several of my teammates will be putting their skills to the test against their rivals.

Without further ado, there is lots to do, yet so little time. Let’s go!

Woke up very late today, but while laying in bed after waking up, I decided to take care of most of the pending tasks, so right after I got up, and until this very moment, I’ve been very productive. I haven’t wasted any minute. Got up, made coffee, washed the dishes, tidied my guest bed, replaced the sheets and tidied my main bed, opened the windows and freshened up the appartment, ironed the washed clothes, prepared and ate a sandwich, drank my coffee, took a shit 😹, recharged my phone’s, headphones’ and my electric scooter’s batteries, spoke with my mom, catched up with my friends on social media, and now sitting in front of my pc ready to do some more work.

I’ve got some pending tasks with my clients. Gotta finish a couple of projects, organize invoices, prepare my trimestral tax declaration, finish up a project’s phase, do some maintenance tasks as per my contract, prepare a new contract, etc. Plenty to be occupied with.

Without further ado, let’s continue with what’s left of the day.

Thursday… one day away from a new One Piece chapter! I’ve already read the spoilers and the leaked RAWs, so I already know what’s coming, but still, reading the unofficial fan-translated new chapter makes my heart race!

Today, again, woke up a bit late’ish, around 2PM. Another day where I’ll be taking it easy. I’ll meet up with my good Spanish bro for staying up all night watching movies with his new projector and 84 inch projection screen. We’ll also be testing out the streaming setup and gear, trying out what format will work for us.

It’s gonna be an interesting day. Already did the laundry, had a nice lunch, and now typing away the couple of hours until I meet up with my G.

Another chill day. Although woke up super late, so I missed a possible meeting for lunch with my friends who came by to Badalona. 😑

In regards to work, just did a light work, going through some organization and catching up to the tasks in queue. Gotta start pushing out some of them and little by little get into full throttle with my work again.

I don’t have much other news though. Same as usual, taking it day by day.

Wow! Two enitre weeks since my last post. I’ve been a bit busy and quite some things have happened. I haven’t gone back to training yet, that’s one of the things I’d like have done, because my body feels like shit. It’s quite tiresome to be dragging this 80kg mass of body around.

Last week I had my teenage crush come over for vacation for 4 days. We did some catching up, going around the city, meet up with some friends of mine, etc. She needed to disconnect from her life in Alicante due to some personal issues, for which I gave my best counsel she asked for. I hope it helps her find peace in her life. I’m sure everything will be all right.

In regards to work, I’ve been taking this last week a bit easy because of built-up frustration and stress, but I’ve used this much needed relaxing days to come up with a new direction and new ventures in my professional career. Stay tuned for updates!

Also, I’ve put my Armancius channels into motion. I’ve created the channels on Instagram, Youtube and Twitch. I’m planning on devising a strategy and start creating content!

All in all, good few weeks and expecting more good stuff to come!

Another Monday, another start of a work week.

Woke up feeling rested and ready to take on the day. Prepared some coffee, put some music on to get into my groove and started typing away.

The day went pretty well. Started off with a company meeting and catching up to where we stood. Everyone clarified what they were doing and planned on completing during this week. I myself got a lot on my plate, so I gotta concentrate and take care of my tasks. This week will be the most productive yet of the whole 2021!

The whole day was dedicated to work. Only a couple of hours were for eating, catching up with a couple of friends and watching the Japanese Sumo tournament of March, which started on Sunday!

Went to sleep having had a productive day.

What a busy day it was! Woke up late’ish, around 12:30, and talked with my bro Onik to meet up. So we did at 14:30 and went walking towards Sagrada Familia all the while stopping at a bar for a cup of coffee and some chatting. After a little bit we arrived at the Sagrada Familia and sat at one of the terrace in front for a soft drink. We did some more chatting and proceeded to got in front of the basílica to take some pictures.

There was this handicapped person (lower half of legs missing) who was doing a little show with his wheelchair and some music. He was very much into it so we decided to watch and me to take some pictures and videos, which I sent him through Google Drive. My bro Onik really liked how dedicated the guy was to his show so he ended up giving him a couple of coins. After taking some pictures of Onik too we started going back towards his hotel.

I said my goodbye to my bro at this hotel and decided to catch up with my other friends at the usual meetup place of La Pecera Pool to play a bit of pool. When I arrived there I didn’t see anybody. After some 15min two friends appeared and told me that there wasn’t any meetup going on here, that there was a dancing event at the Parc Del Joan Miró park we should definitely check out, so there we went.

A bit of a waste of day. Last night again went to sleep pretty late so my body needed a good rest and required me to stay in bed. For the life of me I couldn’t get up to go to the Sambo Referee Seminar training I had paid for. A waste of money and also opportunity to see my colleagues from MMA.

Anyways, contacted my father to help him out with his appartment, did some little work here and there and proceeded to organize my next few days. Had a tasty dinner afterwards, watching some videos and chatting with my girlfriend in Venezuela. It’s always nice talking with her, but it would be so much better to have her close by. The time for that will come soon though, so no need to worry.

And that’s pretty much my day. Finishing this post and gonna grab a quick bite before heading to bed. Ain’t no way in hell I’m gonna sleep at 6AM again!

Another beautiful day where work is getting done! And also got to renew my NIE, finally! After a year and a half of constantly worrying about my documentation status I finally get it sorted out because I was able to finally obtain my Cédula.

Also, today arrived my new much needed travel backpack by Peak Design. Fortunately it fits my Dell Precision 7740 laptop to the perfection, by mere millimeters! I couldn’t be any happier! My hunch was right. And by being right it saves me a bit of additional trouble, since I don’t need to modify the bag to fit the laptop. One downside of the bag though, is the fact that it doesn’t have interior pockets. Going by the photos I was under the impression that interior pockets were included. They should perhaps gray out the pockets so that at least visually it’s instantly clear whether they’re included or not.

Another good news is that my Armenian bro from the Netherlands has come on a visit. We first met while staying at the same hostal in Madrid. We went out and partied together with many more also staying at the same hostal, and later on we merged with other hostal groups! An amazing night! Because of Covid we won’t have as much leeway to party around like that time, but we’ll try to have a good time regardless.

Tomorrow we’ve got lunch for my bro PJ’s birthday at Lahore! I’m already looking forward to the amazing food there. My mouth starts drooling just by remembering! 🤤

See ya guys tomorrow. I’ll tell about all the good food then!
