Hi everyone! Feeling good this week as well.

This week I've finished a portrait commission for a friend, kept working on the miniature production and started the first digital illustration for my anime Patreon. A total of 17 paid hours and 19 spent on unpaid projects.

But especially this week has been very good regarding my habits.
I've managed to reduce my non-productive idling time (facebook, games, IG, porn) to just 10 hours from the usual 25 or more. Instead, 40 hours of my free time have been dedicated to exercising outdoors (increased my calisthenics workout), helping Dad with garage renovation (I set up all the new furniture we ordered, now everything is in place, porch is empty again), meetings with friends and baking (gathered some acorns on my hike and tried an acorn cake recipe).

A Chrome extension called SiteBlock has helped me a lot with self-control. I wasn't aware of how many times I used to open Facebook/IG and the rest of pages, or how unconsciously I did it.
I've been very harsh on myself. I tend to work well when responding to someone else, so I kinda dissociated myself and I let my "employee half" do, without questioning, the work that my "boss half" had decided (not sure if that makes sense).

Also I've had a lot less headaches these last 4 days.
Regarding weight loss I did well during the week and got to 80,7 kg on Friday (again at 81,5 though). My aim is 72 in March.

Goals for this week:

- Mantain the productive hobby time. Consolidate the habit.
- Spend more time actually working (about 25 hours divided between my two paid projects and about 25 more on investing/other unpaid projects).
- Stick to the timetable I did last week (It'll be easier now that the commission and other holiday stuff is finished).

See you next Monday!

Hi guys!

It's been a bit of a turbulent week. Not especially busy but with a couple things that drained my energy a bit, a bit of anxiety throughout the week.

Basically:

About my usual hour tracking,
40 hours of work, of which actually 10 have been real, paid work (producing molds of the Tower). About 15 hours planning, tidying up or conditioning the workspace, 5 with a painting for the art contest, about 5 with other FL projects, and 5 (+ 8 yesterday) applying for a job offer that popped up in one of the important art schools in BCN.
This job appliance drained a lot of my energy. I had a suspicion of something weird going on (appliants that didn't have proper technical knowledge, contradictory messages in the instructions that employers gave us...). Anyway I wasn't selected but a very proficient girl with technical knowledge will probably be. So I'm glad that the selection process is just based on skill and to have been wrong about those weird feelings.
Edit: this girl just text me about weird stuff happening in the job interviews as well (very short, looked rigged). Not my problem anymore though, but I feel bad for it.

Also a thread I started here at the forum got a lot of attention, some comments that were a bit harsh, mocking or unrespectful. But I'm happy for some contributors that helped with useful comments in the right direction, and more important I got what I needed (release/share some info about a project that was weighting me down) . Waiting for the replies, reading some of them, drained a lot of my energy though. That's why I didn't answer further.

Anyway, not much else!
About 10 unproductive hours on FB/etc, which is a good mark. But I was turning the siteblock off a lot during the week. Need to be working on that.

And today I've updated my KS backers about the current state of the Tower, so all good.
And I've gone down to 80,6 kg!

See you next week!
