In spite of things like house flooding, covid-19, sister stealing 1000's from mom, various BS, I think I'm the least stressed I've been in years.
When things go back to normal, I don't know if I can live like I used to. You learn a lot when things get pulled away from you for a while. So many things I don't miss at all about my daily life and never realized.
Twitter scares me with how easy it is exploit. Bots start off just retweeting things their targets like, taking advantage of filtering to get like minds on them. Assuming they follow, it gets extra weighting. And then once drawing a crowd can basically turn 1000's of real people into misinformation aggregates.
I don't follow the conspiracies. But it seems like it'd be very easy.
Autocorrect only ever seems to cost me MORE time when I don't really have it. I go back over it changing established terms it just didn't know or hitting slang (making sentences incomprehensible) or doing weird stuff like correcting 'lets' to 'let's' as though BOTH aren't basic english. Other times it chops up words as I'm inserting letters.
Cruelly it just seems to make touch screens harder for me.
~3am last night I awoke to the curtain drop of a breaker trip. Turned off the bed to find my feet immersed in water. Fountain sounds in the bathroom. Go to bathroom and find toilet has flooded half of the house. The other day, the pressure switch lost tension... probably pumped air into lines, making the fill valve stick. *shrugs*
Getting my stimulus has been a PITA, man. Last year I took the stupid reloadable card to get my refund faster. And then I tossed the card. My stimulus is on that card.
To get a replacement I've been on the phone 3 times. Next is a trip to H&R to try and get a card that lets me access that money. All I can say is, it's a good thing I'm still working or I'd be boned about now.
Got my last wisdom tooth out just in time haha. It was so infected they thought I might need a surgeon... literally a chasm dividing it in half... probably hit me with the 'caine 20+ times... and then it popped out in 30 seconds lol
You all cram into this big expensive building with all of these rules that basically mean "pretend the cubicle is all there is and bother nobody," right? You sit all day and try to focus in this loud ass space.
Why? At that point, everyone could be comfortably doing the same work at home without the cost/morale-hit of a big, shitty office environment.
If I ever become stupid rich, it will be my dream to build a vacuum tube computer that can run Crysis. That wing of my compound can also double as a homeless shelter for the whole tri-county in the wintertime.
It would probably have to be so big you could see it glowing from satellites.
The more I think about this, the more I really need for this to happen.
Man... I'm on a 3-night streak of proper sleep and it is throwing me off. I feel... too human and I can't deal.
I've been stricken by insomnia since I hit puberty. At best, it's like constant low-grade intoxication. I would always romanticize the night to cope, so I feel a little at odds when I suddenly don't have that. Me with sleep ain't me at this point. It's bittersweet
I just popped into spotify (already open) and found it playing generic rap with the volume muted... on repeat. Time to change all my passwords again! Even though I've only ever seen this behavior with spotify. Annoying to overhaul just for that.
Bruh I know you're tryin to pop n shit but this is NOT how you get plays.
