Blurring day and night

[Heads up, a bit longer than my usual posts]

Been such a while since I’ve done some casual writing. I’m fresh off a friend’s posterous and while I am ridiculously busy right now, I’ve decided to steal some away time to pen (type) some of this down.

So blurring day and night, what’s that about?

Right now, I’m in the middle of working on three big projects and one smaller one. I’m passionate about each of these and could easily spend my time on any one in particular so you can imagine the time suck these 3.5 are having on my life.

 

The first is putting together a new website and some fresh new content for our non-profit back home.

It’s just inching past a year old now and has grown unbelievable quickly in that time! We’re now at that point where we need to start organising all our projects and blog posts, and presenting them in a properly designed format, and so I’ve been tweaking wordpress themes, reading up and writing content, and getting the old Twitter going again. It’s tedious work, but it’s amazingly fulfiling and fun.

I’m also really passionate about getting down into this, and I’m even hoping I can get some framework from the mix of theory and research to use within our community planning actions.

 

And what about that smaller thing?

 

Well it’s actually two! One is the groundwork for a design business I’ve been helping a friend set up back home. They’re at that stage now where they’re bringing in one or two clients and there’s a lot of administrative work to be done to get it up and properly running (legal contracts, accounting systems etc.).

The second is plans for growing out TEDxNottingham, attracting a city-wide team, and introducing the event to as many and varied groups as we can in Nottingham, all in the build-up to next year’s event. All this while still doing some final work to get the videos from our last event edited and pushed out there (no small task in itself).

 

With all this work it’s no wonder I’ve been losing track of day and night. I’ve slowly pushed my sleep patterns to roughly somewhere between 7am and 3pm now. It’s all work that I love doing though and I think I’m just at a really high intensity point where everything is temporarily converging. Looking forward to a bit of a lull after the next couple days, but for now, back to the drawing board!
