Weekly review: October 24 - October 30, 2011
I actually got a lot done in terms of education this week, but it’s been very stressful and painful otherwise. Job-related anxiety is at an all-time high, and at points I was concerned that I would be a danger to myself and others. I’ve since recovered over the weekend, but I’m still quite wary about this travelling work project I’ve been stuck on. I didn’t ask for...
The art of tabletop game development
A week ago, I ran a workshop on tabletop game design at the Pickering Public Library with a friend of mine. It’s the second time we’ve run this workshop (the first time was for the Ad Astra convention in the spring). The workshop runs for about three hours, and covers the very basics of rules & mechanics. We start off with a discussion of mechanics, and from there move on to...
Weekly Review: October 17 - October 23, 2011
Another week, another late review. Time wasn’t on my side this week after all, and a number of events conspired to really drag me down by the end of the work week.

As with the last couple of weeks, some things here have already been accomplished, just...

I have Tuesday off work due to meetings, and so I can conduct the game design workshop I’ve done before at Ad Astra. Hopefully I can use the remaining free time to catch up on my coursework. Tasks and...
Weekly Review: October 3 - October 9, 2011
Wow, two days late. Some of the things I missed on last week, I’ve already completed, and likewise for “next week” items. For the sake of physics, I’ll leave those unchecked until the next review. Despite not getting much done outside of work, I had a good week. There were a couple rough spots, but I was able to maintain a positive attitude for the most part. Despite the...
Weekly Review: September 26 - October 2, 2011
The number of things I’ve left undone continues to grow. It’s really getting to me! Hopefully, now that we’re going to start working at the new store, the switch to part-time hours will happen soon and I’ll once again have time to do things. The coming week is packed with nine hour days, so I don’t see much hope for clearing out much of this. This is quite...
