So I have started to notice a dilemma in regards to scheduling for me. I’ve been conflicted in regards to whether or not I want to focus on politics or gaming. My output has not been as good as last month and I only got one new review out. The plus side is that I did get two more political pieces out but it seems as if I’ve just been feeling drained as of late.

I’ve been frustrated that when I ask others about how to handle this, none of them seem to realize why doing both will mean I’m not as efficient with either. For the past few years I’ve basically been pumping out game related content at a constant rate and thus I feel like I need to keep pushing forward and gaining new views. I’m in a bit of a paradox where I haven’t been writing any less, it’s just that I’ve been working on political pieces that require more time and effort than gaming pieces yet are not getting as many views.

And here I am wondering if I’m going to burn out on political writing in about a year and go back to focusing on gaming? Or have I started walking down a path from which I can never return? The entire reason I ever got invested in electoral politics was out of a passion for LGBT rights and a desire to use what little power and influence I have in order to stop President Pussygrabber from being re-elected. It makes me wonder if I’m going to keep making content like this is Trump loses 2020, but it’s not like I can answer that because it’s over a year away.

A lot of this relies on me trying to predict what I will be in the mood for in over a year, and that will almost never work. This means that the obvious idea is to basically just focus on what I want but to do a little of the other thing just to keep up a steady flow. The current plan I have is to finish the final part of the 2020 Senate piece then focus on gaming stuff before I work on the 2020 Gubernatorial piece, but I have no clue what I will be more inclined to do.

In regards to planned reviews, I’ve decided to cancel the Dragon Ball Super reviews since I’m just not feeling them. I’m undecided as to whether or not I will go through with my planned review of Super Mario All Stars. The decision will likely depend on whether or not I finish up Cosmic Star Heroine before I have every other planned piece of mine finished. If I finish it before then, then I will focus on reviewing CSH and skip the Mario review.
