One Brave Night – Update 1

I thought maybe I would start logging what I’m doing to keep myself awake. So far, my plan is to catch up on some shows on my PVR and probably stream some Netflix and/or CraveTV.

I’ve been watching Smallville on CraveTV over the past couple weeks. I’ve got two seasons left. But because I’ve been so into that show, I’ve been neglecting my regular cable shows, so my PVR has been accumulating a lot of stuff.

After I got home from dinner with my parents, I started on my PVR. Here’s what I’ve watched so far:

  • Last night’s episode of The Big Bang TheoryThe Convergence Convergence.

I’ve got a few episodes of Arrow and The Flash to catch up on…

  • ArrowCanary Cry (April 27)
  • The FlashRupture (May 3)
  • Now I’m on Arrow, Genesis (May 4)

Once I’m caught up on Arrow and The Flash, I’ve got a couple movies on Google Play I’ll probably watch, and I’m going to catch up on Orphan Black. I’m very sad to admit that I’ve fallen behind on it. Before this season, the only episodes I ever missed were because I was away at Calgary Expo two years in a row when the show aired on Saturdays.

To be honest, I think the reason I’ve fallen behind this season of Orphan Black, and all my other favourite shows, is because I’ve sort of lost interest in a lot of things lately. I’m not entirely sure if it’s been due to stress or my depression acting up. It’s hard to say because my antidepressants are helping. Getting into Smallville was kind of the only thing I had any desire to do.

On top of that, this week has been especially stressful.

The company I currently work for, puts on a big industry conference every year, and that took place this Monday and Tuesday. However, late last week, my uncle Ted (technically my dad’s uncle) passed away after a 2 year battle with cancer. His funeral was this week. So, after helping with setup and the start of the event on Monday in Niagara Falls, I drove 8 hours to Kirkland Lake on Tuesday. Attended the second visitation that evening.

The funeral was Wednesday morning. The afternoon and evening  was spent hanging out with family. Thursday, I left to come back home to Niagara. On the drive back, I got stuck in traffic at Gravenhurst, where there were several grass fires.

Eventually, I did get home, and went back to work, completely exhausted, today. So, I may need some help staying awake tonight. I’ve stocked up on coffee and snacks, and I think I have enough stuff to keep me occupied, so we’ll see how it goes.

If I’m awake enough come morning, I might go on an early morning drive to take my sunrise selfie in a special spot. I’ve got a couple in mind, but I think one of them might be too long of a drive if I’m not awake enough. I’ll play it by ear.
