The past couple of weeks have been a wild blur. The new baby has kept us very busy, and it seems we have next to no free time to do anything. On a selfish level this is bad for me, because my creative brain works best in the morning / afternoon. By the time the rest of the family are asleep in bed, the urge to learn or create is gone and all I want to do is shoot people in CS:GO. On the plus side, my progress is CS:GO has been good! But that doesn’t benefit anyone else really.
My gym progress has been good. Without being too strict on the calories, I’ve still eaten fairly sensibly most days and have lost a few pounds each week for the past couple of weeks while still hitting PBs on the weights. Today wasn’t good as I missed my bench session this morning, I’m going to try and get it done today though to retain my streak. I’ve quit using the MyProtein preworkout entirely and have been getting up with the aid of coffee + stevia. Need to get more sleep!
In other news the web design thing has gone a bit cold. The pro bono work I have done for other people has gone completely ignored which is worrying – if people who are getting design work for free aren’t interested, how can I possibly expect to make it work commercially? I still like doing it as evidenced by this site and sw-clan.co.uk, but it’s hard to keep the motivation in the face of apathy for something that is so client-dependant. So I’m changing tack for now and have downloaded the Unity 3D game engine. I’m learning to code up a simple 3D game using C# and so far it’s going quite well. I’ve nearly finished the first basic tutorial on their website, and have bought a Teach Yourself Unity in 24 Hours book from Amazon which looks like fun.
