Well, I guess I should break the silence, eh? After I posted about my lack of time and general frazzled-ness, I spent some time thinking. I feel like I have to much to do, becasue I have a metric ton of things to do. And so I spent the last two days reviewing a huge stack of books that had been sitting there by my desk giving me guilt. Books, done. Yay, me! Now I can turn my attention to other things.
Like video. That’s right, I’ve decided to branch out into video, and I have actually shot a few over the past couple of days. I used Windows Movie Maker to do my editing, but then tonight, I read this Blaze Media Pro review on Gadget Advisor and I’m thinking I might need to check it out. WMM does the job, but I couldn’t figure out how to mute just a split second of sound on it, so I had to cut more of my movie than I wanted to. If the Blaze Media Pro can do everything but the dishes, then surely I can cut one word out of a video, right?
As for the rest of my list, I’m not sure Gadget Advisor can help me. A new MSI x58 Eclipse motherboard may speed up my system, and the best extensions for Firefox may boost my productivity a bit, but in the end, it’s time management/goal setting and some boundaries that are going to allow me to get more done. Or less, depending. You know, less isn’t necessarily bad, particularly when you replace the things on your list with people you love.
I think maybe tomorrow, I’ll be tackling something else. Uploading my SPS to flickr? Maybe so.
