Preparations for Being Away

I’ll be out of town for a week starting on Monday, and this last week and weekend are all about getting prepared for that time off.

I’ll be off work for a week, so I had to spend extra time this week and last making sure everything was squared away while I was gone. I do a lot of project-based work for my job, so luckily I have some flexibility, like moving some work to when I’m back in the office, and diverting a couple things to my team while I’m away.

With work squared away, it was time to set my sights on my other responsibilities.

My YouTube Let’s Play series isn’t hard, but it is a bit of planning, a decent amount of work, and you really have to stay on top of things, especially if you’re going to be gone for a week.

Luckily I already record about a week or week and a half in advance, so for the last two weeks I’ve been knocking out two videos a day in both recording and editing to ensure that the entire week I’m gone will be covered, as well as the week after I get back, just because the weekend itself is when I get most of my YouTube work done, and I wanted next weekend freed up after getting back from my trip.

Also, Factorio Alpha .15 hype, emirate?

For anyone who watches my Factorio series, I’ll be out the week .15 is out, so I’ll get my next MegaBus recorded when I get back. Sad to miss the launch week, but it is what it is. Enjoy my MegaWeek though!

And finally, writing. I’m like, really behind on my writing goals for the year. Admittedly, I had some pretty lofty goals, as in five to six times more writing than I’d done in any previous year, so coming short on them would still mean I was 2-3 times more productive this year than last, and that’s about where I am.

I’m scrambling to get a couple things done and sent off before I leave, like Korrigan 03’s final proofed version, which releases May 2nd, and Korrigan 04 needs to get to my copy editor, as I know she’s pretty busy.

All in all, it’s been a busy couple of weeks, but I have nearly all my items crossed off my list, and Monday I fly out.

Till tomorrow,

Tom
