Not going to plan.

I'm running out of time.


Wait, that sounds morbid. Let me try again.


I currently have a lot of university work to be getting on with, and due to the sheer volume of this I don't really have a lot of time to be getting on with my own projects unfortunately. I spend the working day between final year project and team projects that I get little time to myself, and typically spending the day programming burns me out and I end up playing a game on the night time just to relax my brain so my head doesn't melt Indiana Jones style.


I suppose when I look at personal projects then these always had to be done in my spare time in the first place, so I can't complain about it too much but I am getting a little stressed with a bonus deadline to worry about, so I don't think I'm going to be able to throw out the side project in the timescale I wanted to throw it out at. This means that the game I was working on is currently suspended and I'll just work on it when I get some spare moments in a day.


This is disappointing to have to admit; I'm almost admitting defeat to University work but I think its better for my mental state that I don't bog myself down and have myself programming every waking hour of the day, particularly since I live with my partner (I should already spend more time with her in a day).


So yeah, I should still update this every week and I shouldn't have missed last week. But you'll start to find that I'm documenting more about uni work than my own work. This is just what's better for me at the moment so I don't die of a stress tumour.


This is more justifying it to myself than any reader (not that I get many at this point). If I get it down in writing then I'm more relaxed about it and don't feel too accountable for something that I just don't feel is very possible at the moment.


I will set a reminder in my phone to keep this blog up though. There's no excuse for not doing this once every week.
