It is not even 30 seconds, but it serves as a notification that You’re Not Dead is being released soon. I have completed the editing, and changed some stuff around. If you are in a position where you manage distribution of text, let me know the places to get hold of you. I am kind of out of exact dates, but I assume that I will be getting the forms this coming week. Those forms will help me get my text out to the masses.
Also, if you use the YouTube subscribe aspect, I have been a little slow as of late getting new vlogs and whatnot done, but good weather is around the corner! I hope to increase releases in the next few months.
I have some… reservations… with some of my wording on this update. I am very proud of my points, however. Let me know what you think!
As always, there is a pure audio version available.
Please, subscribe to my channel for updates!
Audio version availible, if so inclined.
Yay! My favourite topic to write about: social interation!
As of writing this, I am at 286 followers on WordPress and four through e-mail. Those numbers make me so happy because it means there are 290 people (or, at least, entities) who think that I am interesting enough to follow!
I want to hit 300 by the end of the year.
Why? My ego. Nothing else.
I probably SHOULD be pushing my Twitter since I have over 2X the followers on here. I should also probably push my Patreon so I can afford rent and whatnot. However, there is something about knowing that I might have people interested about this that makes me so happy. I think because this is a form of expression, where Twitter is simply snapshots of thoughts that I am having at the time.
Oh: I am also at 28 followers on my YouTube, but I have only been doing regular-ish updates for a year, so I am not going to fight that one.
Do me a favour: share a link to this blog if you have friends who might be interested in what I write about. Make my small dream of 300 followers this year come true!
I want to preface this piece off by mentioning that this is all self-observation. There are a tonne of people a lot smarter than me who have written about the topic of brain fog, so all I can offer to the world is my personal experience with it. Therefore, this should not be taken as a scientific dive into that world. I know I don’t need to say that I am some kind of professional, but I am stating it in the off-chance that someone takes my words as more than a morbid kind of entertainment.
I shouldn’t be writing this. I shouldn’t be doing much outside of watching something — maybe sometime with cats or puppies being stupid. My ability to rationalize is very hampered right now.
I feel drunk, without the physical side-effects. I feel sleepy, but I tried to nap and got nowhere with that. I feel distracted, but hyper focused on the wrong things.
I call it brain-fog because I read that term somewhere and, regardless if it’s a one-for-one description, it is very apt at describing what I am currently feeling. Ironically, I only seem to see it mentioned when I’m in this state and, thus, cannot comprehend what I’m reading.
ISN’T IS GREAT THAT I AM TRYING TO WRITE SOMETHING IN THIS STATE OF MIND?
No amount of caffeine can fix it. As mentioned, I tried to sleep and got no where with the endeavour. I just ate not long ago, and I had a drink of water to see if that would clear things up. Thankfully, when I have experienced this in the past, it only lasts a day or two. I think. I hope. What if this is a permanent state, and sometimes I just notice it more than others?
I hope you enjoyed my last update on my YouTube channel. I know I come off as very rambly, but everything I say is mildly scripted. At least, to a point where I have an idea of how long the final product will be. That’s why I released the last one as a “short”. Now that I have opened up that option for myself, I will probably record a couple more. I will not be releasing them right away as a PodCast, instead opting to smash them together after five or so. That way, if you do follow the audio-only format, you won’t be inundated with short episodes.
Oh, update on the new book: currently sitting at just shy of 22,000 words. It’s half going well. I wanted to be a lot further, but it’s only the first draft that I wanted to be complete by the end of the year. I hope that I can write another 3000 words without succumbing to unnecessary bloat. Then, I will spend far too long making it prettier and longer!
I decided to upload a short 1 min long video on my YouTube regarding wheelchair ramps. I was not entirely sure how to spin it into a longer episode or how to write an episode around the idea. I’m not going to upload to the PodCast yet. My plan is to do so after five or so short updates on YouTube.
Hi! I did another one of these. I seem to be publishing new vlogs at a ferver right now. I wonder if it’s a seasonal thing?
Wheee… today, I try to explain why nothing is “random”.
New vlog where I try to express the importance of deadlines on everything. Also, minor announcement about the future of “You’re Not Dead”, so I really recommend watching.
