What I’m Doing Now

There’s a lot going on in the world of search marketing at the moment, with Google going all in on AI. It just so happens that my day job is in Search Engine Optimisation, so things have been a bit crazy for me.

I’ve been reading a lot of technical papers and opinion pieces on generative AI and Large language Models (LLMs), I’m battling to sleep because my brain keeps trying to make sense of the data I’m feeding it, it’s a bit exhausting with also having to go through the physical stress of dialysis.

I realise I need to take little breaks often so I’m trying to schedule deep work” sessions of 90 minutes each to try and focus and get important tasks done, then I take an hour break to recharge.


I popped into my local board game shop a couple of weeks ago and bought Onitama. What an awesome game!

The Exquisite Human and I have been playing Onitama most evenings, it’s a game that is well balanced because even a newcomer to the game could win using strategy. It’s easy to learn, but has a lot of depth.

I’ll probably be annoying everyone I meet from now on because I will seize any opportunity to play Onitama.

We’ve also been mixing in a few games of Tak, which I’m not very good at, but am determined to get good at.

Other than playing board games, I’ve also been working on my own game. The mechanics work, so the next step is to develop the game’s story.

It’s a small game with simple rules that I think can have multiple themes.

All fun stuff!
