Over the past few weeks, I have not been true to my goals at all. I have disappointed myself. I think a LOT of us do this, but not all of us know how to take a look at the failed goals, introspect, and come out on the other side.
So, this is me looking back, taking a good look at it, and figuring out how to move forward.

I only got two videos out last week. I was gunning for three due to the length of the script and the subject of the third, but it turned into something a lot larger than I anticipated. I am going to get the video I meant for the Rant Channel done. The video is about truth and integrity.

This one is painful, but what is introspection without a little pain? I have continued the research on the book to the left. There will be at least two in the series, three if there is enough out there for a third. The titles will be:
The Herbs in Your Kitchen
The Flowers in Your Garden
The Trees You See (Tentative)
I am in the process of looking at printing companies, and I am going to launch a Kickstarter campaign. Why a campaign and not Amazon? I am trying to diversify how I publish and where I publish. I am also wanting to hire an artist for the herbal pictures and recipe cards as I can’t draw very well.
Other than that, I have started adding to The Blanket. I need to take a good look at it, and I am even adding chapters before the snippets I already have uploaded. Once I have it all together, I will start adding to it. I also want to add to Morgan and the others as well.
My ADHD, My Chemo Brain, and me…
If I have learned ONE thing, it’s that I CANNOT forget to take the B-complex or Vitamin D. I accidentally did that for a week, and the brain fog, brain skips, ADHD paralysis, and overall brain function went down the drain faster than flushing a toilet.
I am getting to the point where I can work on projects and talk to people in voice chat without missing a beat as long as I take my supplements. That’s a win for me. I love that it’s coming back. Now, I can be productive and socialize. I can also listen to a stream while socializing and doing project work.
That’s three, baby! I may not ever get back to keeping track of six things, but I will take three. That’s a huge leap from where I was.
The memory still sucks. That is still an issue.
Not getting Annoyed with Mom…
Yeah, I am still trying not to be annoyed with her regarding my content creation, writing, and my freelancing. She still doesn’t think I work.
Some days are better than others, and I am NOT showing her how annoyed I am. I am also attempting to post less about it to social media. I don’t want to annoy other people.
It seems I am not the only freelance writer having problems getting jobs. I am a part of a forum on Upwork, and other freelancers have noticed a marked drop in their jobs and getting them.
On one hand, it’s good to know it’s not just me, but that’s not a good sign.
I am looking for P/T work out of the home, but all the temp agency is finding is stuff for taxes, and I am NOT comfortable handling taxes for other people, even if I am not the one processing the forms.
New Stream? Or New OLD Stream?
I am bringing back The Old Time Radio live stream but with a twist. I have found there are movies and TV shows that are Public Domain as well.
I am so excited to bring this back. I had fun the first time around.
You can find that link here.
I am not going to dwell on what I have not accomplished yet. I can’t. If I do, I know my ADHD will kick in, and I will spend another week not doing most of the things I have planned.
I am getting better at telling my brain to cool it, but it’s never going to get to a place where I don’t have to worry about it.
As of December 2022, I am cancer free, but I am not bill-free and won’t be for some time.
I received a letter from my healthcare people, and I have to make calls to get clarification, but it seems that they are no longer partnered with my gynecology/oncology department. I am going to have to find out what this means for my future screenings and the possible costs. I don’t want to change doctors. The team I have is phenomenal. I would not ditch them for ANY amount of money.
Speaking of which, we have raised $1125 out of our $4492 goal. If you want to help, click here.
We’re getting there, but there are some bills already in collections while we are paying on a huge one.
Until next time, my loveable misfits.
