Woke up feeling ok, specially when not having to deal with annoying mosquitos.

Hard a semi-productive day by helping my father installing the new laminated floor, which also unfortunately consumed my afternoon-night time so I couldn’t go hit the gym. I’ll surely go tomorrow afternoon.

Anyways, had dinner, did some browsing and now gonna go to bed and rest for tomorrow.

Didn’t sleep for almost the entire night. The fuken mosquitos kept me awake for most of the part. Tonight is going to be diferent though, because I’ll be using mosquito repelent. I won’t suffere through the same shit again. I need to sleep, rest and wake up at a early time to go on about my business.

I took almost the entire April as chill relax month. I now realized that I was a bit burnt out and disorganized, resulting in unproductive hours in front of the laptop. I know the lack of energy is also due to the fact that I went back to intermittent fasting coupled with going back to the gym on an almost daily basis, so little energy and focus was left for anything else. But now that I’ve got a little bit of momentum going for me I’ve got to prioritize what I should be working on and focus hardcore on it to get stuff done. I urgently need to save money and plan my next steps carefully.

Aside from the usual, I’m hanging out with friends on the weekends and enjoying quality time. I haven’t been doing much photography though, nor have I been reading books, nor have I been studying for my driving license. All that has to change. So, first step is clarity on where I stand. Second, where do I wanna go. Third, start doing it. Be it reading, sports, the Armancius show, driving license, renting an apartment in the center of Barcelina, videography/photography, finding a wife, help my community, progress in my work, etc.

So, yeah, lots to do, yet so little clarity right now. I really need to find a method for organizing my life in the most efficient way and hold myself accountable. I was hoping the Armancius would be it.

Anyho’, ‘nough bitchin’, on with the work!

Woke up kind of on time today, because of a couple of mosquitos who somehow managed to sneak into my room and proceed to devour me alive. I got up very annoyed and went on a hunt, eventually finding the culprits and smashing them to my heart’s delight! 🤗

We continue the hard work. Now more than ever! Specially now with amazing remixes of Armenian classic songs from Gorgeouz Beats! I HIGHLY recommend checking out their music!

Sprits are RAISED, more than ever! Victory shall be ours!

Without further ado, back to business!

Woke up late again. Feeling a bit better though, because I had dinner last night after completing my intermittent fasting day.

In the last week I’ve been going back to the gym, started new projects recording and editing videos, coming to terms with my web development tasks, helping my father move in my apartment, continuing the work on the Armancius blog, etc.

There are times like these when I feel a bit overwhelmed with all the tasks piling on top of me, so I usually take a few chill days off, so I can rest my mind and calm my heart. Then, it feels good to be active again when I come back. Getting back into the mess! 😹
It’s not fun if it isn’t difficult, right?

Anyho’, here we go again. Another sprint of a week, specially now that the 106th Armenian Genocide remembrance day is coming up and lots of things are at stake. We need to push for this to be recognized once and for all.

Let’s get it on!

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!
