I finally made it to my dental appointment. It took a while for me to grok the victory. But once I did, I was no longer stapled to the floor from massive energy depletion. It’s embarrassing how quickly I felt better by merely adjusting my perspective. Now I have to acknowledge how much shit I’ve made harder by picking a viewpoint without benefits. Welp. May as well skip the regret (because who has time to double down on mistakes?)
Did you see Dr. Keia from Gettin Grown podcast on The Read tv show? (!!!) More importantly, did you hear her? I got chills. Then I rewatched it several times until M confiscated the remote. (It kept repeating the same ad.) I can’t remember the last time I ran in place while pointing at the TV and squeeing. 🙃 (Oh, yeah. Homecoming. 😆)
I installed some acoustic panels in my apartment to get rid of the echo (or something.) The sound didn’t behave properly before, and now it does. Thanks, YouTube. It feels like I made a drastic change, but it was easy. My ears don’t get fatigued anymore if that makes sense. I can listen to everything at a lower volume and not miss dialogue or lyrics. I got them in white squares, and now I know the difference between white and eggshell. Sigh.
Oh well. It’s not like I have a strict design theme to maintain. 😂 I’m still laughing at the two years of my life I spent pretending to be a minimalist. (I was a don’t-you-dare-open-anything-with-a-door-ist.) I spent a lot of time taking crappy photos of my space while feeling superior to other consumers for no reason. All it accomplished was a mild complex about opening closets. I was over it the second it dawned on me. Now my theme is whatever makes me smile.
I’m still listening to The Chain by Evanescence repeatedly. I made a playlist with that, and four versions by Fleetwood Mac, (including a live recording.) Fleetwood Mac’s original release of The Chain is one of the first songs I learned to play by ear on the drums. It forced me to focus on the beat, not on listening to the band. I play along with the new version using an orchestral kit, which is fun. I love the reinterpretation. Amy Lee is so fabulous. I’d trust Pink and Kelly Clarkson to do a Fleetwood Mac song reinterpretation, too.
I upgraded my Warcraft account, including preordering Shadowlands. I got a free level boost to 120, but I can’t do it. It would take the fun out of it. (I still have two unused 110’s.) I reached level 114 the last time I played. The anniversary experience buff is welcome. All my skills are low all over again, and I still think archaeology blows compared to farming, but whatever. Plenty to work on over the winter. I’m not pleased about the dogs and cats that keep wandering into fights only to die, though, Blizzard. Not cool, yo. Time to hire a company psychologist, eh? I’m off to play zoomed-in, (so I don’t accidentally murder cat-shaped pixels.) 💜✌🏽
