I woke up last night at about 1045 to my phone ringing. I’m a super-duper early-bird, so this was almost 3 hours into my sleep. And I keep my phone in Do Not Disturb, so it was someone who knew how to get past my “filter” for emergencies.

Well, the news wasn’t good — I’m officially quarantined for two weeks, which just means I have an opportunity to focus on other projects. ?

That threw off my night, which has thrown off my entire day. Toward the end of the day, after doing damage-control, I finally got around to my drawing.

My warmup felt “messy” — I did it at home instead of the cabin, so the kids were screaming and playing. I felt a bit rushed, even though it took longer than usual to do.

And some 30-second gestures to meet my “floor” for the day. The next two weeks will be filled with art and going back to my educational roots to build websites and start a side business that will hopefully sustain my family during times like these.

What went well?

  • Meeting with Chris Beaven and coming up with some really awesome plans to hold me over through the quarantine.
  • Not breaking the chain.

What needs work?

  • Stress management during high-stress times.
  • My energy is all off.

What did I learn?

I need to have a conservative “fallback” for when things like this happen to my primary source of income. I need to focus more on a sustainable “passive” income. Or a low-maintenance side-income.

Back to making progress on my side-projects and putting out feelers for web design projects.
