- I've stopped using my pain as a crutch (not that I ever really did).
- I've talked to Doctors about things that have been going on for years.
- I've made conscious decisions about my health.
- I've been better at getting projects done.
First off, Blogging has really taken a back seat the last few months and I apologize. My sleep schedule is none existent still and no matter what I do or what I try it doesn't seem to help only for a day or two. I've accepted that I am a night owl. I create more in the hours that people are sleeping than I do during the day.
Secondly, my health has been okay. I've had migraines more often again, my knee that I had surgery on five years ago is acting up again, but through this, I've accepted that my body is not normal and there is nothing I can do to make it normal. I just go with the flow and talk to my doctors about it whenever something new or off happens. That's a huge step for me because I don't like doctors (who does?).
Thirdly, writing has not been every day. I've been making content for my DeviantArt page, practicing my other creative skills, and, while this is a good thing, I really need to set priorities. So, This month I'm going to take evasive action on this front in three main ways.
- Setting a "Writing Time" every day:
I will set a daily alarm on my phone and sit down to write. If for some reason, I need to move that time I will set a second alarm to make sure I do sit down to write at least for an hour a day.
- I'm going to give myself consequences for missing deadlines.
- I"m going to have someone keep me accountable and ask if I've written at least a chapter today.
You know who you are *stares at my friend whom I know reads these*.
Anyhow, that's all I have for today. I'm going to finish up a picture I was working on for July 12th... Oh! July 12th is Internet-Wide day of action to save Net Neutrality.
The Internet has thrived precisely because of net neutrality. It's what makes it so vibrant and innovative—a place for creativity, free expression, and exchange of ideas with a level playing field for all kinds of content. Without real, enforceable net neutrality rooted in the legal foundation known as Title II, the Internet will become more like Cable TV, where the content you see is what your provider gets paid to put in front of you by powerful corporate media interests."
