I’m sorry I don’t always talk about my feelings, I want to make it up to some of you by at least putting them here. And then I’ll put every one of these disappearing notes in a permanent location so I can log my progress and feelings

Sleeping on this couch is something that will help. Entrusting friends with some of my struggles is the first step to growth. What other steps can I take? As I said to one of my friends tonight is that I work best when I have a small area of focus. I like working alone yet I’m unmotivated, I like small friend groups because I feel more like a loner yet I crave human interaction and touch when I’m alone. Is all this ilrelevent because I feel lost, goalless and pathless. Another day passes

Off topic but I often feel at war with my carnal desires and my mind. Of course the mind always wins but the conflict still takes up brain power. I hope these skirmishes subside as I get older.

P.s looking back this will not help me remember successfully, I might need to add a quick summery of the days events to help jog my memory

Went to an art show put on by the hospice center the artist was at. When to my friends house to go to a vegan place that makes cinnamon rolls. Came back and watched some YouTube and office. Decided to sleep on the couch. Started writing within Instagram and decided that I would start posting here again. Maybe this time #100days will be doable with so much time and so much on my mind.

The next year of my life is going to be crazy

it has been so crazy that I forgot to start writing the rest of this artical. I'm a little overwhelmed and that is leading to slow productivity which adds to the stress and compounds the problem. I don't really know whats going on.

what I do know is that I've read these books since we last left.
The Vexed Generation (Magic 2.0)
Steelheart (The Reckoners)
Firefight (The Reckoners)
Calamity (The Reckoners)
Mitosis (The Reckoners)
Meet the Frugalwoods
Sleep Smarter by Shawn Stevenson

Currently reading
Children of Ruin
The Obesity Code (really awesome book)

okay this kinda helped so I'm going to get back to work. If y'all have any prayers or encourgment I will gladly accept it.

Have a fantastic day.

Recap: I’m not dead

So I haven’t been here for a while, here is what I’ve done since my absence.

  1. I was in Italy when I was writing the majority of my #100days challenge but I was keeping it secret for safety reason. I stayed there for a month for some summer classes (two B’s).
  2. I went to Colorado with my girlfriend and her family for a week which was awesome
  3. I recently fell in love with a book series called Everyone loves large chests which I listened to on audible but recently found out that it’s a web series that’s wayyyyyyy ahead of the books. It’s my first lewdfantasy genre series and I honestly love it (pretty much anything video game related: Sword art online, konosuba, ready player one, ascend online).
  4. I just found out where I need to approve my guestbook entries and I approved all of them. Thank you for your concern and support for this outlet, it really means the world to me.

Ok so this is unorganized but that’s why we love listed. I didn’t die on May 24th but I did get pretty wasted and then proceeded to run through the streets of Florence to get back to my apartment to go to the bathroom. I don’t know why I stopped updating but I’m sorry for the wait. I might take up the #100days challenge but I might not. All I know is that I love this platform still and I’m excited to start posting again.

If anyone has any good Books, Anime, selfhelp, recipes, or life hacks (nsfw or otherwise) please send them my way.

I’ve been reading: meet the frugalwoods. I’ll talk more about this book and how it’s really inspiring me.

Also I’m hooked on those askreddit posts that are read by robots for some reason.

May 24 2019 13/#100Days

Currently drunk/tipsy
The room is currently spinning
Perfect time to write right?
Ohhhhhhhhhhg the spinning
I could of gone to the club but I got drunk at the pregame bar

May 20th 2019 12/#100Day

Eating in with friends, need to make more time for writing. Summer classes at 8am are so boring.

May 19th 2019 11/#100Days

Summer courses begin tomorrow, I’m having fun meeting with my classmates today.
Weird question but if you could buy one leather good which one would you buy? For me I think a bag of some sort would probably be the best in my opinion. Any clothing I would be scared to out grow in some way.

May 18th 2019 10/#100days

I honestly can’t really remember the last 24 hours that well. Everything is so hectic and I have gotten very little sleep.

May 17th 2019 9/#100Days

I don’t know if anyone else has this, but I sometimes just don’t eat. It’s the weirdest feeling but I sometimes just don’t feel hunger and I don’t really feel the effects until the following day. That’s basically what I did yesterday, just worked on my room and realized I didn’t eat until 12 at night.
I had some time today to talk about, well, today. I’m reading books, watching movies, and trying to forge habits that will be useful to me in the future while I’m still in a forgiving environment. I found some really good ads in craigslist for some awesome camera gear for a steal. I don’t have the money right now the ad is easily $5000 underprice. When I get the money should I see if its still available? If it is should I buy it and resell the gear separately? I could basically make my money back with just one of the items. I hope so much that this deal is still available and is not “too good to be true” story.
Made some strides in how one of my recording sets is going to look like and function. One major question is should I do green screen or no? One upside is that I wouldn’t have to have a complicated lighting setup, on the other hand I just have to light myself and my green screen correctly so that way i have good separation and my green screen has no hot spots.
Upcoming stuff I need to worry about is mainly finding an internship and afterward finding a well paying job that I used my degree to get.
Found out that my sync account got completely canceled so either I’m going to have to sign up again or make my own cloud storage solution. I think for now I can get by with some external hard drives but I do think making my own server would be a great learning experience. Maybe I can do cloud storage and also do a Nas just in case i get another editor working on stuff. I built my own desktop computer, how much harder could it be (sarcasm lol).

Well that’s going to do it for me today, if you have any question or comments please feel free to tweet or DM me on twitter @GLSSJG.

May 16th 2019 8/#Days100

I need to make more time to write. 11 hours of Youtube followed by 5 hours of awesome productivity. I loved that feeling of productivity.
I almost stepped on a scorpion today.
Also contacted my cloud storage provider about account issues, kinda annoyed that things aren’t working right even though I did nothing to break them. If this keeps up I want to build my own cloud server for my files using Nextcloud.

P.S. @mo of you’re reading this I would love to be able to push notes directly from the app to Listed. I don’t mind going to the website to publish it’s just a quality of life thing :) Keep up the great work 👍

May 15th 2019 7/#100Days

New Adobe updates yas.
I want to bike tomorrow
ninja warrior training really kicked my butt today.

May 14th 2019 6/#100Days

Played Skyrim all day. No regrets...

May 13th 2019 6/#100Days

So a lot has been going on the past couple of days, but I've been keeping my notes super short because I always get home super late and I have little to no time to write them before I go to bed. Today I'm writing at about 10:30 at night.

Events of the last couple of days: doing research on how to blend into another country, doing research on locksport and penetration testing, and shooting pictures of a dog.

Something that's been on my mind is a book that I read a long time about called "The First 20 Hours" by Josh Kaufman. This book really sparked interest in learning a lot of things and becoming a jack of all trades. Something that I tried way back when I was trying to relearn typing using an alternative keyboard layout called colemak which has a more balanced usage between the hands. The only reason we use QWERTY today is because of the mechanics of the typewriter. So I'm going to try again to learn colemak. Hopefully, I can be excellent in colemak and ok in qwerty without them messing each other up.
Currently stuck on what type of YouTube content I want to make. I want to produce high-quality videos, but I feel like I'm not good enough to improv my way through and also not strong enough writer (let alone scriptwriting). Help. I guess I'll have to start off being a no brain react channel and work on my acting at the same time, also I could find a way to put a twist on it and still work on getting better at writing and making long format original content.

wow, writing really helps you get all your eggs sorted.

    Current goals

    1. learn locksport
    2. learn to use colemak
    3. create 1 video a week for the rest of the year
    4. learn script writing/hire a writer
    5. Finish the #100Days Challenge
    6. find a new bag for my car tools
    7. Reach 1000 subscribers by the end of the year.
    8. Get my cardio back up.
    9. stress about all the things I want to do
    10. WATCH LESS YOUTUBE ( I watch about 4 hours on average just on my phone.... I need help )

    I'm loving all the activity on Listed this past week I read every single article ( I check three times a day) it really has replaced Twitter for me because I find all of you so enjoyable.

    If anyone wants to ask any questions or just say hi, you can sign my guestbook :)

    (also for some reason my font sizes are all wonkey on Listed hmmm)

    May 12th 2019 5/#100Days

    Today was so unproductive and I’m so tired. I just am going to write for like an hour tomorrow.

    May 11th 2019 4/#100Days

    Short note tonight I just want to go to bed. Need to fix my sleep schedule. Ordered some picks for locksport and some biking equipment.

    May 10th 2019 3/#100Days

    Shot and edited my first video today on my new YouTube channel, it took me so many takes and like 3 hours to edit.

    Saw detective Pikachu today and it was quite good, even though I predicted the end just by the trailer.

    Found a cool video for you to watch.

    Things I need to work on.

    1. learning to pick out ingredients in food or blindfolded
    2. get comfortable in front of the camera
    3. edit more and get faster.

    I'm really loving this community with the fact that we like sharing ideas, but we don't mind if no one reads it. This platform is going to be the internet's best little treasures. I welcome everyone with open arms. I'm probably going to give out multiple subscriptions for Christmas and just random giveaways cause I believe in this product and platform so much.

    May 9th 2019 2/#100Days

    So today I wanted to talk about how I'm going to enable comments on Listed and how my workflow works currently.

    I'm going to start using Dissenter by Gab as my comment section for these logs. Basically once I post I can pull the direct link to the comment section (I will explain in detail below).

    So for my workflow, this is how it works.

    1. Write everything out disregarding typos and grammar errors, no images or links
    2. Paste everything into Grammarly (already canceled the service but I'll use it until the subscription expires, I use it as a crutch)
    3. Paste back into Standard notes and insert images and links
    4. Actions>Upload to Listed
    5. Go to the article and grab the URL
    6. Go to Dissenter and paste in the URL
    7. Copy Dissenter link
    8. Go back to standard notes and insert the link at the bottom of the log (I use the plus editor)
    9. Actions>Update published post
    10. Actions>Email Subscribers

    And there you have it, my insanely complicated process.

    click this link if you want to comment on my log.

    Update: Unfortunately, you'll need an account if you want to comment there. Back to the drawing board, I guess.

    May 8th 2019 (1/100) #100Days

    Hello everyone and welcome to day one out of 100 for Listed #100days writing challenge. I personally think this challenge is a great way to push yourself in a creative direction and improve your work ethic by finishing what you start even if it's hard. I am so happy to be on this platform with so many talented writers, creatives and professionals from different backgrounds and specialties. I'm excited to learn from all of you as I get better at expressing myself and my ideas.
    I would have been on my 10th day of the #100days challenge by now, but I took a break yesterday because finals completely wiped me out. Today was the last day of the spring semester, and I'm excited to make an opportunity to focus on building on some projects I laid the groundwork for during the semester. During this semester I focused on moving from big tech to privacy based apps, thinking up a unique new username, securing all the relevant social media and domain names, and finally creating a logo. During the summer I'm going to be doing summer school with my university and maybe travel a bit, I also want to rapidly grow my social media presence and start my journey to creating my own business using the internet. I ordered a book called "One Million Followers: How I Built a Massive Social Following in 30 Days (I promise it's not an affiliate link)," but Amazon just told me that it got lost in the mail...
    That's going to be all for me today I encourage all of you to start writing and challenge you to write for #100Days, you'll probably surprise yourself.
    See yeah.

    May 6th 2019

    Another day another few hours asleep yay.
    In preparing for my university finals, I got about an hour of sleep. It paid off, and I got some pretty good grades on my projects. I have one more project for tonight, but I think I'll get some sleep tonight.

    May 5th 2019

    hey, I'm kinda busy tonight, so I'm going to keep this log relatively short.
    Long story short I have two deadlines to meet by tomorrow, and I've been polishing the items to turn in all day. While I was doing some of my work I started watching Game of Thrones, and I have to say that I have yet to really warm up to it, but I'm only 2-3 eps in. I have been listening to reddit posts read by Rslash, and I'm pretty addicted.
    Other than moving some furniture for a friend and working in and around my house it's been pretty dull.
    I'm going to go pull an all-nighter now :)

    May 4th 2019

    First off... May the 4th be with you...
    Anyway, I did some ninja competition this morning, and my hands survived but not without basically destroying every one of my calluses. I have to work to get my calluses back while also getting much stronger.
    I watched a little kids basketball game today where the rules prevented them from stealing the ball from each other. Having played basketball for the majority of my life, it was exciting to watch. If I ever get bored someday I know, I could be the best coach for like middle school and below, where the foundations of the game need to be reinforced. I would let the better coaches build the house on that foundation, and they would be great.
    Tomorrow is going to be crunch time for a lot of my assignments so I'm am going to be really busy. Nonetheless, I'm going to record my intro video tomorrow (no matter how cringy it is. I'm going to prepare with a sheet with bullet points and try my best and know that there is no greatness without failure.
    Finally, the beta for the new dissenter web browser is out.
