It's common wisdom that one of the difficulties with working from home is maintaining proper work-life balance. I normally have no trouble with this. But last night at 1 am, after our Terraria session concluded, I found myself working on my latest project. I didn't plan to do any work; I just kind of drifted into it. I found myself revising my text, rewording a few sentences, that kind of thing. Then I wrote a few paragraphs. Then I started doing research. Before I knew it, it was 2 am, and I was very tired, and I thought I had planned to get an early night?
Now it's midday and I've predictably been sleepy all day. I really need to get my sleep back on track.
It's Labor Day and I'm sitting here alone at my computer, eating a cheese quesadilla for lunch. A pretty typical Labor Day. Well, normally I'd at least make burgers or brats or something, but I'm out. Gonna get a big delivery of groceries tomorrow.
Groceries get AND project complete! I emailed my file to my boss at around 6 pm, which I figure isn't too far off normal working hours. Time to celebrate with a burger for dinner.
After that, it was back to Terraria with newbie. (HGR was not feeling well and couldn't come.) We've been trying to beat Skeletron for the past two (real-time) nights. My previous weapon loadout was not even semi-functional for combat and we literally hit enrage. Then meisnewbie our BARD suggested I use a BOW and that improved our dps dramatically. On our last run of the night we wiped at like 5%. We'll get him next time for sure.
