    Slightly overloaded and a bit stressed out

    Jimi Wikman

    I have so many things I want to do here on the site, but I am procrastinating. In fact I am feeling quite overwhelmed at the moment due to the sheer number of uncertainty in my life at the moment. This is causing a bit of stress, which make the procrastination even worse.

    As you might know I have quit my job as consultant with Zington. This means that in a few months a new adventure is waiting, one way or the other. With the crazy world we live in right now it may not have been the best timing, but changes never comes without a cost. Until then I continue to work on my design assignment with ChessIT, which is high paced, yet so very satisfying.

    Leaving a job always comes with ton of things you need to do. Everything from off-boarding to financial agreements and transfer phone accounts and so on. Fortunately Zington is great and it is very much streamlined so not so much hassle as just another list of things that need to be done.

    A new season has started in Destiny 2 and I feel like I should play again. It takes longer than I would want to level up, but once that is done I do not know what to do next as nothing in this season feel important or engaging. I bought a new headset and a game pad since my keyboard is to wide and I wanted to try something new. So far it works well, but I am having a hard time committing to gaming at the moment.

    My computer setup also need an upgrade now that home work will be more of a thing for a few months at least. This means I have to make some investments into a new desk and a proper chair. This also add stress as I need to make sure I get a workstation that works for more than just a few hours of gaming now and again. The placement also is not ideal, so I am limited to a narrow space which make it hard to get a desk that can be raised with an engine.

    Here on the site I got a bit of a setback as I lost all images due to some mistake on behalf of my webhost. It zapped a bit of energy as it takes a while to recreate all images from scratch. It did come with a positive thing though as I now have all my files through Invision Community hosted on AWS. Of course I also have versioning activated in case something bad happen again.

    My old Wordpress site is bothering me a bit as well. I made the switch from Wordpress because I wanted to get away from the constant worry of having security issues since it's the worlds largest CMS. The fact that I still have it up bother me more than it should I will look into migrating all old posts so I can shut it down for good. This again require some time to focus as i will be messing with databases and that is never good if you get it wrong.

    I keep seeing so many amazing CSS and JS examples I want to dive into. I also get more and more involved in Sketch and I am itching to try out Figma. I spent quite a bit of time to prepare for the certification for SAfe, which I completed last weekend. I really wanted to commit to training, but now I am kind of stuck since the gym is closed and I have no desire to go and get Corona if I can avoid it.

    In short I am feeling like I am bombarded with things that need to be done and it's piling up a bit, causing stress. So I just have to deal with it like any time you get stuck procrastinating and that is to just focus on the shortest, most important task first. Get it done and then focus on the next one. This way I can release some dopamine in my body until the procrastination tun into activity again.

    Life is always in motion and sometimes you get a bit of motion sickness.
    That will pass though, so just lift you head and enjoy the ride the best you can.
