As far as Sundays go, this one was pretty productive for me. Normally when I set goals for a day, they seem to be around the realm of:
- Play video game
- Read book
- Organize comics
- Try to find a reason to leave the house for a couple hour
and I had none of that going on today. Well O.K., I played video games and read from my book… and organized my comics… BUT I did not go out for a frivilous errand just to escape my parents’ home. NAY.
Because I am broke.
Which puts a hamper on plans to complete the urgent shopping list of:
so I remained landlocked. But rather than let that make my day be dull and unproductive (which is a state of being I’m finding all too easy for us post-college people to slide into) I put my time to use.
My comic site, nickmongo.com, has been broken for some time now after I made a boo boo and overwrote some important files while updating Word Press. So I went ahead and– O.K. it is still broken, but I made large leaps on my redesign of the site, which I’m trying to keep on the dee el until it is done and ready to be implemented.
The new design is a lot simpler which I think makes for a better website. There was always a little bit of a problem with the current design as I tried to figure out what to do with all the space and columns the template gave me. None of that fluff with the new design.
Following that, someone is coming to look at my old car tomorrow and maybe end up buying it so I clean the whole thing out and it a sparkle-y lie. I’m trying to be as honest as we can with the guy coming down but there are only so many bad things you can say about a vehicle before the person thinks it might be personal.
I also did some old fashioned drawing today, which is always a joy once I start but it seems like such a steep hill to climb in order to begin putting pencil to paper. I’m drawing some stuff for a comic contest good old Philly’s City Paper is having. If you live in the area, go a head and submit you own goodies. Details are here.
Finally, at some point during the day I had a dazzling plan involving T-Shirts and spray paint and after I had gathered all I needed from the t-shirt angle of the plan I realized the spray paint portion fell short.
I had no spray paint.
So this plan of all plans will have to wait for later.
What I learned today: If I ask my mom if she has any spray paint she will say “No, but I can pick up some for you tomorrow,” with no questions asked. With my track record involving unthought-out plans using permanent markings, this makes my mom very cool.
