Another day of continued focus and dedication. Woke up at around 10:30AM feeling a bit weird thought so decided to stay a bit longer in bed. The thing is, I fell asleep again and woke up at a 1:30PM to messages from my colleague asking whether I was on for the call of 11AM… 😅

Got up, washed my face, dressed up, grabbed coffee and jumped right back in front of the laptop to get some more work done. And here I am, 11PM and got 11:30 hours of work done during the day of December 16th! All in all a good productive day, but tonight I’m sleeping on time 💯!

Nothing much else to write about. It’s just me and these four walls. I wanted to go to the Monkey Factory meetup, but got held back by work, although I think staying at home was for the best.

Woke up at almost 11AM! Goddamn, when will I learn to sleep on time! I really, really, REALLY need to fix this ASAP. I just couldn’t fall asleep. I think I need to go back to doing sports again.

As a wake up call, and mostly as a prank on my neighbours, decided to put a nuclear alarm soundtrack on full blast while drinking some coffee! 😹
My friends on IG thought it was funny too hahah.

Anyho’, the day is full of projects waiting to either be worked on or the be started.

Let’s get to it!

Man, it has been a busy week. So much that it has been difficult for me to even find time to write down in my Five Minute Journal.

I’ve been immersed in work since I decided to at least finish the couple of projects I owed to some of my clients which I had kind of abandoned due to lack of time and burnout. But I’m a man of my word and the circumstances are not valid excuses for not delivering on my commitment. So, since Tuesday I’ve been hard at it, but still managed to sneak out a couple of time to breath some fresh air and hang out with my friends.

There are other news and developments too, but I’ve got to put them aside for the time being. I can’t be chasing people who don’t seem to want spend time with me. Writing it down it’s become clearer what I need to do in regards to those people. It’s hard to think clearly though when you’re caught up in the moment.

Anyways, that’s what’s been going on the past few days since Wednesday. The usual waking up (late 😹) and getting right to business and getting those 40 hours of work done.

And talking about work, I’ve got some left waiting for me to be finished lol.

On we go with the last day of the week, getting some tasks done and taking the rest of the day chill, because next week it’ll be as hectic as ever!

Wednesday already! Goddamn.

Yesterday, Tuesday, flew by while working. I forgot to write a Five Minute Journal post. Had lots of other things going on during the day.

Sold a computer screen, got work done, watched some series, got 9 hours of work in, but again slept super late and because of that woke up at almost 2PM today! 🤦‍♂️

Anyho’, today didn’t feel like doing much, but ended up doing the groceries,went ot hang out with friends, did some work anyway.

Tomorrow will be another day and I’ll give it my all, but today will finish with completing a task and watching a series while in bed “early”.

A new day of a new week. Depressing start though. Just when I thought 2020 couldn’t get any worse it goes and shows it sure can! 😞

Sad news puts everything in contrast! You stop complaining like a bitch and start facing life for what it is. It’s cruel, it’s unforgiving, it’s hard. Nature gives, but it also takes. And when it comes to take it might do so in a very surprising and sudden cruel way. You just can’t prepare for this kind of stuff. You’ll always have to suffer through it first to know what it feels like. It sucks.

I’d like to say “life goes on”, but I can’t. Not at this precise moment. These days are for suffering, and it’s only going to get worse before it gets better.

I’ll accept this load and bear with the weight, for we humans are beasts of burden. Such is our fate from the moment we are born.

Woke up at 8AM and kinda felt rested and ready to go, but decided to lay down again because there was a part of me deep inside telling me something was off despite looking ok. So I went back to sleep until 1PM! 😹

Got up, this time feeling 100% rested. Prepared food, ate spaghetti, grabbed some coffee and went straight back to the laptop to do some work, but mostly did just some administrative tasks.

Anyways, got a lot of stuff to catch up with and later this afternoon hang out with my friends at the usual hangout bar in Monkey Factory.

Let’s Rock & Roll!

Woke up kind of early considering I went to sleep at almost 5 AM. 😹

Felt a bit tired though, so took my time getting up, but once I did I just went straight to business. Did the laundry and got a couple of hours of work done. Went shopping for some food, prepared a “noice” meal and went to take a break watching The Legend Of Korra on Amazon Prime, because they finally made the second season available!

Then went back to working and getting some productive hours in until my father arrived to pay me a visit. We talked for a couple of hours over some tea, which kinda felt good. Afterwards went back to work and complete a couple of tasks before heading to bed.

See you guys tomorrow for more!

Almost halfway through the week. Got quite the amount of work done. Being productive and liking it.

Had a conversation with my father yesterday during one of my late night breaks and we talked about Armenia and what we can do to help it. He told me he’s been working on a plan of action type of document to send it as a proposal to a prominent Armenian politic so as to get everybody on the same page and move in the same direction. It’s a good start I think so I offered my full support for helping in any way possible.

In regards to what I want to do, I still want to go back to Armenia. My future is there. Perhaps not right this instant, but it’s a question of a few weeks/months until I’m back. Until then gotta patiently prepare for the trip back. Gotta empty out this house, save money, finish my projects, close my Autónomo account, learn Armenian, etc.

There’s plenty to do, so let’s not lose any time! 💪

Again, woke up late to a couple of projects waiting to be worked on. First thing I thought about was why am I sleeping without a care in the world with everything that’s going on right now? I’m getting distracted too much. I should find my perfect routine to maximize productivity.

I’ve got too many thoughts going through my mind at the same time. Gotta untangle that.

Got perfect peace and blood boiling at the same time. I think I finally understand what being at peace really means. No need to deny nor ignore any part of myself. Accept and use it. Use the Rage! Use the Love! Use it all!

Waking up after a long-ass sleep to another day, a new week. Again, good weather with an almost clear sky. I notice that because for almost 6 years every time I came out of the house I was greeted by a gray depression-inducing sky, so I’ve come to learn to appreciate good weather that cheers me up.

The lands where I was born has 4 natural seasons (spring, summer, autumn, winter) therefor my body is adapted to such climates. In the Netherlands, where we lived for almost 6 years, had 3 seasons, them being spring for 2 months, autumn for most of the year lasting 6-7 months, and winter lasting for 3-4 months. There were hot springs from time to time, but not anything you could call a good warm summer. In comparison Spain has longer warmer periods. Spain has 2-3 months of spring, 6-7 months of summer and 4-5 months of autumn. If you want to see winter in Spain then you’ve got to go to the mountains.

Anyways, long story short, feeling good and motivated to continue working and make every day count towards the bigger goals.
