I learnt on Saturday of a death that really affected me (no one famous, don't fret), and I immediately cancelled all my socialising plans. I had been hovering on whether or not I had the energy to socialise, but then I read that email, and, no. No I did not.
So, Saturday after teaching martial arts, I went home and stayed home. I sat with the kitties and the Amazing Flatmate and watched old episodes of Master Chef Canada. That season, incidentally, had one of the most adorable contestants ever, and she won. So I was pleased with that marathon.
Sunday proved much more productive. The morning saw a beautiful if cold two-hour walk. Most people stare blankly at me when I say stuff like that, but I just really like walking, and as long as you're dressed for the weather, it doesn't matter what it's like outside, the walk is still enjoyable. As it happened, it was beautiful and sunny yesterday, with the only possibly complaint being that the wind was fairly biting.
Still, it was a gorgeous walk, and I was going to see friends for the filming of Nights at the Round Table. We had a full panel for both films, and the films were both light, funny and good fun. It was a good morning.
Socialising, however, really does take a lot out of me. I got home and had a really long nap (two hours or so). Then, I headed downstairs and got to work editing footage from the episodes we were missing still. There's quite a backlog as I haven't been in the best place to deal with all the work I've created for myself.
In any case, I knuckled down and got three episodes edited, uploaded and scheduled. There will be three episodes this week. If I can keep up this productivity streak, there will be three more episodes next week too.
As a reward for my productivity, I let myself play some Skyrim. Have I mentioned how much I love that game? Because I do. A lot.
So, this weekend was a mixed bag, but, thanks to good friends, great conversation, and some gaming, it was actually a pretty good one.
How was yours?
