A relatively normal week to cap off the month, without much in the way of oddness to report.  Reading progress continues at a good clip on Harrow la Novena, which as a follow up to Gideon is very interesting, went in a direction I couldn’t have expected.  It’s a smidge longer of a book, so reading rate’s a little bit slower, but should make good progress on it still before going back to La Rueda del Tiempo.

I have continued my long-form watch throughs of Kiwillius Let’s Plays and have been enjoying them.  Don’t have much to report there, either.  Progress marches ever onward.

As October came to a close, let’s take a look back over the month as a whole.

  • Total Watching/Listening: 39 youtube videos watched, 1,440 minutes
  • Total Reading: 3/4 whole books read, 1,530 minutes
  • Total Writing: 0 words written, 0 minutes
  • Total Speaking: reading out loud, 510 minutes
  • Total Time: 49 hours 30 minutes

And here’s the breakdown for money spent.

  • Harrow la Novena, Fiction, ebook, Amazon, $11.96
  • Netflix Subscription Standard HD Plan, Television and Movie Streaming, $10.99 per month, $10.99
  • Disney+ Subscription, Television and Movie Streaming, $6.99 per month, $6.99
  • Amount Spent on Fiction Ebooks $11.96
  • Amount Spent on Services: $17.98
  • Total Spent: $29.94

A pretty normal month all things considered, too.  Not entirely normal, as we must acknowledge my mini vacation I took, resulting in a rather reduced week of lighter days while I relaxed from work, but overall pretty normal.  Don’t have much to mention about it, a lot of things are just pretty…groovin’ along right now.  Finishing some things, watching others, reading books, enjoying myself.  Overall a good time.

Writing, on the other hand, has not been a good time, with me not getting any fiction written at all in October, and I’m not quite sure what to do to fix that.  Been distracted and a little out of it lately with that, and work’s been rather busy, which has kept me tired.  I need a chance to kinda collect myself and get something started that I can get momentum behind.  Which is something I definitely need to do, it’s pretty important to me, but it’s gonna be an uphill battle, I’m afraid.  I need to work on it, though.  Gonna try to in November, which is likely going to have some time for me to worry about that sort of thing, as the holidays approach and work gets wonky.  We’ll see, though, it’s been a busy year at work and that might just continue through and not give me much of a break.  That’s job security at least, lol.

Anyway, that’ll do for this one, diving into November now and hoping for the best. TTFN.
