Today started off in a blur of notifications and catching up on social media. I swear I intended to get straight to work, but Twitter had other plans, as always. Anyway, by around 12:41, I decided to officially give up Twitter for the day, declaring it a victory for productivity.

I then plunged into editing the video and audio for tomorrow's newsletter. This task took longer than I expected, primarily because I'm overly particular about these things. Somewhere around 2 pm, I found a moment's clarity in watching my work take shape through careful splicing and mixing.

Still sticking with the newsletter video editing, I realised it might drag on until late afternoon. By 3:45 pm, I finally finished exporting the audio and video versions, and I felt that mixture of satisfaction and frustration. These tasks really do take up more time than you think. Not too happy about spending my whole day on it, but at least it’s done and dusted.

For a project update, I didn't get a chance to play with the pen plotter height settings today, as planned. So, I’ll dive into that tomorrow. Maybe I'll gain some insights or, at the very least, get some useful results. Playing around with pen height and different brush pens does sound intriguing, and I think it'll be quite the experiment.

On the personal front, I feel slightly despondent today, probably due to spending all hours editing without making room for the creative stuff that genuinely excites me. I guess I’ll need to manage my time better to balance editing tasks and artistic experiments.

Speaking of time, I still need to be hopeful about that old studio sale supposedly set for next Wednesday. Cautious optimism is the term I'd use; it’s in the back of my mind constantly. If it all goes smoothly, the following week might feel lighter, productive, and less stressed.

The highlight of today, I suppose, is acknowledging that part of my workflow and reflecting on how to streamline it better next time. Slow progress is still progress.

And tomorrow, I'll get back into tinkering with the pen plotter settings and hopefully, feel that creative spark again. We'll see how it goes.
