Monday Series: A Medium Report


The mediocrity phase continues. It's a calm-before-the-storm of sorts given the number of events planned this summer. I have a lot to do this week. I think that it should be (mostly) manageable. Perhaps I'll take off on Monday the 5th to observe July 4th; not because I care about July 4th but because I care about trying to build holidays into my routine. The deeper I get into this self-employment world, the more I want my days to resemble the corporate world's schedule. How sad and ironic is that? Lol, whatever.

I'll be taking a 10-day beach trip in mid-July. I might have mentioned this already. It'll be the first dedicated time off I've scheduled since before I went full-time entrepreneur/freelance/artist/weirdo at the end of July last year. I am very much looking forward to it. On the one hand, I feel a ton of pressure to finish a bunch of stuff before I head off, but on the other hand, it's nice to have a thing that I'm working toward. I can push hard for 3 weeks.

In Tarot project land, I continue to do the daily card pull. I am now more than halfway through the deck. I believe I pulled card 41 this morning. Slow, steady progress does indeed work, my friends. 

I'm going to try to front load this week with my design contract work and leave Thursday/Friday open for miscellaneous tasks, commissions/other contracts, and tarot work. That feels like a good way to break up the tasks right now. Perhaps I'll be able to work on the tarot frames this way. Currently, my daily routine has only allowed enough time for the tarot card pull. This solution might be better for extended tarot time.

That's all from me today. I can't believe that June is already over!
