I'm procrastinating

The Gates of Horn and Ivory

Two Gates the silent House of Sleep adorn; Of polish'd Iv'ry this, that of transparent Horn:
True Visions thro' transparent Horn arise; Thro' polish'd Iv'ry pass deluding Lies.

    On a lot of things, actually. I need to do that video for patreon, so they'll publish it, but I haaaaaate how I look on camera, and I'm terrified of people finding me, because I didn't always hang out with awesome people. And I'm related to non-awesome people. But I'm also procrastinating on getting today's pages done. My mind is moving slow. 7 pages a week is my goal, I think I'm averaging one a day this week. This will, of course, be content for patreon.

    I'm also procrastinating on chores. I did a bunch of dishes, so I don't really feel like picking up the dining room. I also need to feed the cats wet food (they get free fed dry, but Albedo has arthritis and the med gets mixed with food. However, he's picky for a former feral, so he will only eat it if it's served no more than every other day.)

    I also need to make knitting project notes, shuffle things around, and just a million little things that don't matter now, but will make things like finding projects, and finishing projects, easier later.

    I also need to finish plying this yarn, so I can finish that too, and make it into whatever Lyndsay wants.

    I have so many little things to do, but I don't want to do them.

    So, Gates, what are you putting off?

    Unless you patreon is for political content that strays a bit uncomfortably far from the Overton window I don't imagine there are gonna be any sub-awesome people looking to find you. As much as the Internet is a small place, it's actually a pretty big place. and it's very hard to run into people you know or have known unless you become wildly famous or they are obsessed with you in particular. Then again, I say that from the perspective of someone who is known by nobody, so it could be said my knowledge in this is severely limited.
    On the topic of videos though, I am not clear on what kind of content you're trying to make here but in a lot of cases actually appearing on the video yourself isn't even necessary because it's possible to show whatever it is that you need to show without ever showing your face.

    In any case, a simpler question would be "what aren't you putting off"? I'm not really doing anything I think I should, at some point, do. Just procrastinating on everything. It's not even that I don't want to do stuff, I just can't really motivate myself to do it because it's less exciting that some other things I could be doing.. but am not doing. And the chain continues.

    I mean I know I'm being paranoid, especially since the one I'm most worried about, my mom, has no clue how to verify a person's address when stalking them, so after a few days she gave up driving back and forth in front of my house to instead text my husband, like we're going to give an unstable meth addict our address just because she wants to "send an outfit." But she's the whole reason I'm paranoid, so it's been hard to shake. As per the others, well it's not as likely, but there are some people I'd rather not talk to again.

    And yeah I get that. There are tons of things I should do, but that doesn't mean they get done in a timely fashion.

    Well, neither meth addicts or old people are known for being handy with computers. Or really using them at all. Also, the one fortunate thing about the Internet is that unlike real life where you need to get a restraining order to get someone to leave you alone, on the Internet you can just block them if need be. You'll probably be fine.

    I am putting off going to bed. But actually I am going to go to bed now. I'll be back.
