But I’ve got a good excuse.
So this posting every Sunday thing fell by the wayside before I even started. But I have a good excuse, I swear. The new job has me working a ton of hours and my OT hours happen to be very late hours over the weekend so by the time we get to Sunday- I’m usually sprawled out, spent, tired. Finto. So the intention is there but the execution has been… lacking. But I am here right now! So enjoy this update. Or don’t.
A little bit of good news- I sold some writing. That makes me incredibly happy even though I still do feel a little suspicious about it. Call it imposter’s syndrome or the benefits of nepotism. Either way, I wrote something, I got paid for it, now I want to write more things.
In a totally different yet similar vein, YES, I am working on my own thing separately from “If I Did It“. I like talking about MMA but there are other things I want to discuss. I am slowly in the process of redoing my office so things are a lot easier and I can get in my creative zone better than what happens currently. That being said, I’m also trying to figure out exactly how I want to do this podcast- I’m debating on streaming on Twitch with a later upload to YouTube… mostly because I am not sure I fit YouTube… which is funny since Twitch is known for gaming. It’s going to be hard to do with all the travel which is also why I’m just kinda like “fuck it, let me just do Soundcloud” because I can’t always do a video with all the work traveling going on these days. I made a commitment to the guys to do “If I Did It” every week until they ask me to leave but to commit to being on camera for another hour after that isn’t exactly easy right now. At the same time, I want to branch out and do my own thing. I like to talk about politics, pop culture, science… and I tend to have some really controversial views on stuff which is probably why its good I try to do my own thing… but doing your own thing is hard because I don’t like just speaking into a microphone alone. Oddly enough, I find doing that a little bit easier on video. Go figure.
I guess this is a non-update. At least I cared enough to post something. It’s still crap posting. The things I care about- I am not sure if I am still filtering or waiting for the right moment.
I’ll say this- I feel semi-stable at the moment so I feel like I can push the boundaries again a little bit. I like to push.
