I am off work for the rest of the week. I’m giving myself a break and rewarding myself with a four day weekend. It’s one of the things that I need to improve on: taking more time for myself. I can’t remember the last time I used up all of my vacation days. And thatContinue reading “Don’t hoard vacation days”
This was too cute to not share. The songs brought back some good memories. I can’t believe these characters have been with us for so long!
It was a pleasant surprise to see a couple of the AeroGarden’s tomatoes starting to show some color, even more than my last check in.
1. Balance I work from home and I love it. It’s definitely a privilege that I try not to take for granted. Like many remote workers, I do struggle with “clocking out”. I sometimes feel guilty for even stepping away from my desk during business hours. As the time passes, I am getting more comfortableContinue reading “Five things for the week”
Just an incremental update as we’re seeing some change in the color of the tomatoes. You can see a couple of them in the back (left) are beginning to change to a more yellow color.
Murdered young police officers, the second of the year in this area. R.I.P. Natalie Corona, R.I.P. Tara O’Sullivan. Officer O’Sullivan was murdered, last night, not too far from my neighborhood. She was part of a group of officers responding to a domestic violence call. She was doing her job. No, I’m not happy with ourContinue reading “Gone at 26 years old, Officer O’Sullivan”
Salsa, bruschetta, Greek salads… we’re anticipating being able to make a lot of this in the coming weeks. Look at all of the tomatoes coming in! I’m now adding water every 2-3 days and haven’t raised the light hood since the last time. It seems like the plants are holding steady at their current height,Continue reading “Day 72 – AeroGarden”
First, I will preface this by saying that I absolutely have no issues with the people who create or watch mukbang videos and streams. If it brings you happiness, if it’s something you enjoy, and you aren’t causing harm to others then, as far as I am concerned, carry on. I have been aware ofContinue reading “On mukbang, I… have questions…”
I don’t know where or when I first heard this song. And I have never seen the video until I searched for it, for this blog post. Watching the video made the earworm worse, as now I see the two alien slugs when I hear “roooooooocket ship”.
1. Newsletter I have been toying with starting a weekly email newsletter. I like the format but was never really sure that I would have anything to write about consistently. I have quite a few ideas forming, though, so I decided to move forward with the first step; creating an account on the newsletter platformContinue reading “Five things for the week”
I love cappuccinos. I like, well… I like like flat whites. My go to at coffeeshops has long been cappuccino. I love the flavor and feel of them, ordering them whenever I find myself in a cafe, coffeeshop, or while traveling. It’s been my go to until a few months back, where on a whimContinue reading “I like like flat whites”
I love the bounty that is coming in, some of it show in the above photo. You can see all of the fruit coming in on the canopy of the plants. There are more coming in beneath that top layer. It’s exciting to see them develop, and even more so when I anticipate how manyContinue reading “Day 65 – AeroGarden”
I have been keeping up with all of the Nintendo news from E3 and it has me excited about some games that will be coming out soon. Animal Crossing: New Horizons – This looks like a fun game that I (and many others) can get lost in. Animal Crossing has a very calming effect onContinue reading “Nintendo E3”
I was so excited to watch the game, the team’s first of the tournament. It felt like forever between the Women’s World Cup opening day and today. I can’t imagine what it felt like for the players and coaches having to wait to play their first match. Imagine the pent up energy and emotion theyContinue reading “WNT vs Thailand… 13 goals!?!”
