Don’t Be Afraid To Suck

Don’t Be Afraid To Suck

A reminder to all of us that making mistakes isn’t a bad thing at all, quite the opposite: it’s an opportunity for growth and to get better. Our endeavour to be “perfect” all the time and not make mistakes may well be the cause for limited growth.

Health and Tech Update

I’ve met a new primary doctor to make sure my hand isn’t getting any worse. Turns out she had the same oncologist as I did, and she’s a cancer survivor! Meanwhile, the results of my latest blood work are back, and I’ve got some news on how the next instalment of DAZ Studio 101 is coming along, plus some news on future streaming plans I have.

The live stream I’m talking about is on my other channel: Using dForce and Denoiser in DAZ Studio.

Hand Pain

I’ve noticed some increasing discomfort in my left hand, which I believe is caused by my day job. I’ve been shopping one too many grocery items it appears. To make sure this discomfort doesn’t escalate into something more serious, I’m trying an experiment to change my own behaviour and notice what I’m doing that might be causing this issue.

Goodbye, Google+

I’ve just heard that Google are “sunsetting” their Google+ services for all consumers. In this episode I reminisce about the ups and downs, and how important it is to let go of things that aren’t in-line with your own energy.

Twitch Expansion

In this episode I’m talking about thoughts on expanding my audience reach to Twitch. The company have recently expanded their repertoire to more non-gaming content, they have a big user base, their service is integrated into many streaming services – and they offer free video storage. Why not utilise it?

I’m still testing it out, but if you’re eager to embrace new services, join me for a casual live stream over here: https://twitch.tv/wpguru

So Adobe bought Allegorithmic

This week’s tech news is that Adobe have bought Allegorithmic, which leads me to re-consider the Creative Cloud. In this episode I’m sharing my thoughts on perpetual software licenses vs. subscriptions, as well as voluntary contributions, and how it all makes me feel.

International Accounts and Postage

I’m on my way to the post office to buy some stamps, so that I can send a letter to Germany, cancelling one of my international bank accounts. First world traveller problems at their finest!

Pain and Awareness

Over the last few days I’ve notched some annoying pain developing in my left shoulder, as well as my left hand. It was so bad that I couldn’t turn my head anymore. To avoid this from getting worse, I took a closer look at how I did things in my life

Meanwhile, I’ve received a large package with tiny content from Amazon.

The New Weekly Schedule for 2019

In an effort to streamline my day job and my creative efforts, I’ve devised a plan to set dedicated days aside for each venture. Here’s my plan, which – so far – is working wonders for my physical and emotional wellbeing.
