The 30th of November came and went, and unfortunately I did not make my target of 50,000 words. I started fairly strong and managed to get to about 15,000 in the first week-and-a-bit, but then real life caught up, and I found I didn’t have the time or the inclination to push myself to write every day. I am very happy with what I did manage to write, and as I saw someone on twitter say the other day “Words that were not there in October are now there in December”. Patrice wanted me to keep writing, and I will try, but I think it’s going to be very hard to find the time.

There are so many little projects going around my head at the moment that I wish I had about a month off, and enough money to chase them down and get them off my damned to-do list. I have a Raspberry Pi that I really want to set up as a time-lapse machine, maybe with some additional functionality that I am yet to decide on. I have a Mini-ITX motherboard I want to build into a tiny server with my first home-brew case. I really want to make my homepage a little more exciting. We need to do a fair bit of work to the house, and go to the dentist. Stuff really piles up.

One thing that I have been doing pretty well is the “water challenge”. A friend of mine at work has said we should only drink water (for health reasons) for as long as we can. It’s been 6 days so far, and I think I might have lost about 3KG’s. We want to keep it going until at least the 17th of December, so I can only hope I lose a little more weight between now and then.

So much do to. So little time.
