I'm in sort of a predicament lately with the GeekNights and life in general. I work, I commute, I do the GeekNights, I sleep, I eat, and I live life. However, I want to start doing other things. Those things include makin videos, making software, making video games, etc. I'm hoping that one of these other things, most likely the software, will result in something that I can do as a full-time job.
The problem is that because of GeekNights and such, I don't have enough free time to work on any of these other things. I mean, I could have had a few videos done by now, but I have high standards of quality. Also, while I technically have enough hours in the day to possibly do more than I am doing now, I don't have the physical and mental power to do so. You see how even GeekNights alone suffers when we are tired. Even with a spare hour or two before bedtime, I can't be productive if my brain is fried.
One solution would be to try to turn GeekNights into the thing that is my full-time job, but we already promised that we wouldn't make money from that. Even if you guys were all cool with it, I still wouldn't do it, because a promise is a promise.
I think in the near future we might reduce the quantity of GeekNights to two episodes per week. That means every other week will be a Monday/Wednesday Week and the other week will be a Tuesday/Thursday week, or something along those lines. In other words, each individual GeekNights night will have one episode every two weeks.
However, this will be accompanied by an increase in other FRC content, such as videos and more. We will force ourselves to spend the time we would have spent on those missing GeekNights episodes on other endeavors. Those other endeavors include pretty much all the stuff we have shit-talked about all this time. However, we might try to make money somehow off of these non-GeekNights ventures. If it bears fruit we might be able to quit jobs, bring GeekNights back up to speed, and produce more than ever before.
Yeah, something has to happen soon. We'll see how it goes.
