I haven’t been able to post a lot lately. You may be thinking it has something to do with my newborn daughter. You’d be right, to an extent anyway.
My daughter has a weird sleep schedule. She sleeps from 3am to some time in the afternoon. Not straight, though. As she’ll wake up every so often to breastfeed. As a result. She’s often asleep when I’m home in the morning. I work 12-9pm. Factor in the 45 minute commute and the only time I see her, awake anyway, is when I get home around 10pm.
It use to be I’d get home and work on blogs or videos or whatever needed to be done. Now I get home, eat dinner and suddenly it’s 11 and I’m just now able to play with my daughter. So, naturally, that cuts into time I put into videos and blogs.
I work a pretty stress free job. I had some down time and could work on blogs at work and turn them into videos at home. Recently I got a $4 raise for added responsibility. As a result, a lot of my down time at work has gotten used up by my time in other departments.
I have videos and streams planned, I just need to get my time management back right. As priorities and necessities have evolved and changed over the last four months.
But I like to make these life update post every now and then, so here we are.
I will say, one my favorite new hobbies is investing. Now, I work a very modest pay rate. And since Jessica and I just had our daughter, we are a single income family. As a result, we don’t have tens of thousands of dollars lying around. My boss invest and he got me to start. So, I’ll leave my Robinhood referral link below. With it, you can start investing and we can both get a free stock!
So, I’ve got some video game pick ups, TCG unboxings, and some top fives planned. So please stick around as I try to get back in the groove!
Thank you anyone who read or will read these post
We talked about this a few weeks ago. Jessica and I had our first kid, our daughter Baby Hubbz April 14th, 2022. We then had our first anniversary on the 17th. And finally Jessica had her birthday on the 24th. I finally have my own family and I love them dearly. I took a week off to be with them. Today I returned to work. Anyway, were excited to see where our life goes from here.
Wow. So this what I’ve been hinting at on the blog. Jessica and I will be having a child in about 2 weeks. How crazy!? I started this blog back forever ago. Jessica and I had only been a couple for a few months. Fast forward to today and we’re about to celebrate our first anniversary of being married (April 17th) and somewhere that week we will be having a girl. She will be here on the 14th if we have to have a C-Section and as late as the 20th if she comes on her due date (but we all know how babies are!)
I’ve said it before on here. This year, as far as the blog goes, is not off to a great start. But in my real life I am so excited to become a father. Anyway, I felt like I should go ahead and share it to the blog.
Tonight, we are going to see Morbius! So everyone who reads this. Have a great night!
Last year was the best year in our blogs history. And I really wanted to build on that momentum. And while some stuff definitely happened, I still could have.
I actually got really bad sick on New Years. I was running a fever of at least 103 and shaking. And a few days later on January 4th, one of my best friends and co-workers died suddenly. It was easily the worst week of my life as an adult. And it seems shallow in comparison to those things, my graphics card in my computer died. So I’ve been without my computer for a while now. Hence, while videos and post have stopped. I really feel like the world doesn’t want it to work out. I went to record a digimon box opening and pulled the Omnimon Ghost Rare and then the SD card died.
It was a string of back luck that made me question doing all this side stuff. Maybe I should just focus on work and family. At the end of the day, I still enjoy blogging and recording, but the set backs are rough. Mostly because they require time or money I don’t have. I mean, getting a graphic card is not going to be cheap, so who knows when I’ll get my computer back.
I do have plans for some new blogs, but I’ll either have to do them on my phone or Jessica’s computer. Which I guess isn’t that big of a deal. I just really like editing these post on my computer. My phone is very much a 7 out of 10 experience.
Oh, well. If you’ve stayed following the blog after another month break, thank you for understanding! I want to announce something big tomorrow. So here’s to hoping I can actually pull it off.
That’s all for today. Have a great day!
Merry Christmas, everyone. The year is coming to a close. Jessica and I have a big announcement tomorrow for the blog. We will also be doing a channel update and a year in review post. But for now. Enjoy the holidays, everyone.
We’ve had a great family game night so no blog tonight. Tomorrow is of course Thanksgiving so who knows how that’ll go. Friday it’s back to work for Black Friday. Let the Holidays begin and the start of the Big Retail Season kick off.
Maybe it is growing up. Maybe it is a change in prospective. But as you get older, birthdays lose their magic.
Today is my birthday. When people figured out I was working, everyone told me I should have asked off. My initial thought, why? I took Saturday off to go to a family Thanksgiving event. I have Wednesday and Thursday off. I would rather take today and get money than take today off.
I think a lot of working adults will understand that. My life isn’t stressful enough where I need this one night to unwind. I got Pokemon Diamond and Pearl remakes for my birthday. It will probably be next week before I play them (unless I randomly give in to the urge tonight). Even though I’m off, I’m still busy with family functions this week. I have an insurance inspector coming to look at my house tomorrow at 10am. I just got off work. I’ll probably spend the rest of the night rearranging my house for tomorrow and then go to bed.
My mom wanted me to take off work and spend the day with her. But it’s just not the same. People ask me what I want for my birthday, nothing comes to mind. It’s not that there aren’t things I want. It’s just I don’t spend the month leading up to it thinking about it like you do when you’re younger.
I’d be very interested to hear what you guys think about the matter. I bought the $1 Walmart mint chocolate cookies from Walmart as a treat to myself. Outside of that, today was a normal day. So make sure you sound down in the comments. I want to hear if this is something all adults eventually go through or not.
Don’t get me wrong, I do love my job as I have alluded to in previous blogs. I get to put Pokemon cards online for my local hobby shop. Sadly, though, it just pays $10 an hour. Looking ahead to 2022, I have financial goals. I’d like to save more, make more, invest more and take two vacations. Greedy! I know!
However, I feel like my current job is only going to get me so far. Now, this new side hustle isn’t crazy money. But it is still money. It will allow me to make money when I’m off or have free time. That’s the exciting part.
Now I have applied and I’m just waiting to hear back. I’ll do an update blog whenever I figure out the verdict.
I have an awesome job at a hobby shop. I put cards online for a living. But lately there has been some real problems.
I won’t go into it because, while the blog is a collection of my personal thoughts, I don’t believe in airing somethings out. So I’m just hopping on here to vent not to do a tell all. This blog is coming out so close to midnight because a co-worker and I talked for two hours about things we wish we could do at the shop and things we wished we could change.
I have some blogs planned for later so hopefully tomorrow is back to regular content. Thank you guys and have a great day!
I had plans to do a Humble Bundle post today, but my day has been very choppy between a meeting and the movies. Meaning I didn’t have time to do a good write up on it. So hopefully that can be something I do tomorrow.
Anyway, tonight Jessica and I are going to see Eternals. So that’s today’s post. Again we will try to get back to regularly scheduled post tomorrow, lord willing.
