I guess starting off with good news, I’m starting season 8 of Midsomer Murders as I write this. I really enjoy this show. They swapped out the main DS — Troy, for a new DS — Daniel Scott. I really didn’t like him at first because I didn’t like the way that he was coming across. But he’s been starting to grow on me, as my friend told me he would. It’s a little weird, and maybe I mentioned this before but the seasons are weird. There’s only like 5 episodes per season but each episode is like 1.5+ hours long. I already know at some point the main star is getting swapped out and that’s kind of a bummer because I really like him. But I like the show well enough to continue on and i’ll see if I like the new guy as much.
This week at work has been busy like the last few weeks. But today was rather nice because I didn’t have to be in any chats, and was working on a project. Basically they were recording me and how i process so as to help build some automation for the things that we do. It’s a pretty big process, and will help my career there. It was going rather smoothly today until the systems went down for like an hour and a half or so. It was nice at first not having to do anything but towards the end I was getting bored as there wasn’t much I could do.
It’s been a weird week. I didn’t stream Thursday. Some things happened on during my Tuesday stream which caused me to end my stream early. I spent the rest of the night physically ill because I had upset somebody. I had a rough time after that, and even the thought of streaming Thursday was making me shake even as much as an hour before I was supposed to stream. I had planned on making a tweet about not having a stream that night, and to be honest, I’m not sure I’ll stream on Sunday either, but I was distracted by my call with the tax people. Hint: it didn’t go well, and I’ll go over that later. I did get a nice logo sent to me from a friend of my daughters boyfriend. The preliminary work is great and I think I might see if he’ll do some stuff for my socials and / or twitch channel.
As far as taxes go, for some reason I’m gonna be paying out this year for taxes and its quite a bit of money. I’ve never had to pay out this year and honestly there’s not really a worse time for this to happen with everything going on. I’m not sure if it’s because of the “stimulus” that we got or because I just didn’t drive enough miles this year and have enough expenses, although it seems to be more of the latter. I only did gig work for the first couple of months of last year, which is when we make a good chunk of money. Unfortunately I didn’t have a lot of business expenses and I think that really hurt me. I dunno. I’ll have to go in and really look everything over with the pro, but, well lets face it. They’re the pro for a reason.
I have a bit of a to do list this weekend which is disappointing because all I really want to do is curl up on the couch and watch murder mystery show. I need to cut some of the branches on the tree next to the house because they’re getting long and scraping the windows and such. Also, if the insurance company decides to come out and do an inspection they’re going to complain about it. How do I know this? Well obviously because I’m in the industry silly. I also need to really vacuum and steam clean the carpets. It’s amazing how dirty a carpet can get from two dogs romping around. Speaking of which I also probably should give princess a bath this weekend. The car also has a flat tire I noticed. I probably don’t really need to do anything with it but it’d be a nice thing for me to do. It probably needs to be taken out of the garage and the engine ran for awhile too. I also gotta get my junk out of it anyways since I’m not using it anymore. Man, this blog post is turning into a to do list and I’m NOT liking it lol.
Anyways, it’s almost 2am so I should like, probably go to bed and stuff.
