I’ve been in a bit of an emotional funk for the last week or so, and I really wanted to snap out of it this weekend.

I made myself go to the gym, and that didn’t work (actually I felt worse). I wrote something, but concluded it was rubbish. I went on an adventure with a friend, which kinda worked but then I didn’t really know what to do.

I read this post on Captain Awkward about breaking out of a low mood cycle (which was great), and this post on procrastinating (is it procrastinating when you just don’t feel like doing anything?)

And then I decided the best thing for me to do was ship something. So I worked on putting my Image Filter app online. I discovered the New Way to embed Processing apps (Processing.js), updated all my other apps which are way simpler, and so was a good way to figure out how it works.

It’s not quite done, but I do feel slightly better.

It it ironic that the procrastination post inspired me to take this strategy? Because in the end I was doing what I wanted to do, rather than what I should do. It was nice.
