We got two free mini tablets from Verizon about two years ago, and I set them aside after minimally using one for my classes (The Great Gatsby audio). I finally got them out of the closet and charged them. Woo-hoo! I seriously feel like I conquered some serious procrastination.
in the minor victory column…
while I haven’t been ‘working’ since the 3rd my official end date is tomorrow and that has all been paid time.
i manged to earn vacation up to a full week and will be getting 5 weeks severance. so yay.
I think it depends on the day. Sometimes I’m like, “yay, I don’t look my age” and sometimes it’s like “Oh, you don’t think I’m an adult, huh?” Depends on the mood.
Actually I’ve been getting white hairs (like my dad’s mom) and kind of like them. However, I still am probably going to color my hair next week when I go for a (long overdue) hair cut. I was thinking actually going purple and grey…
Geez, I gotta tell you, you Brits have a big problem here. (You might already be aware of that!) I haven’t spoken to a single person here who: a) thinks Brexit was a good idea; b) understands why y’all have lost your minds. It’s not even so much that they’re angry as it is they just don’t understand it. And worse, they’re making fun of it. It reminds me of the Bush years after he squandered all the post-9/11 goodwill. And the regular folks I’ve talked to want y’all gone yesterday. None of this two-year stuff that your PM is talking about.
On the plus side, it’s a very good time to be an American in Europe. And if I’d known how effective it is to bring a cute 9-year-old who speaks the languages pretty well, I’d have done it long ago. She had a looong conversation with our lunchtime waiter about the menu. She was chattering away, and I got maybe every third word. I don’t have a clue what she ordered us-- some kind of small fishes in a wine and butter sauce with little roasty potatoes-- but it was amazing. I am counting on her to guide our stomachs through Paris in a couple of days.
Magnesium 400mg, zinc 50mg, multi (mostly for B’s , copper, A, E, and trace minerals).
Advil (for inflammation in muh organs, stopping that one this weekend), lisinipril, 3600mg fish oil
Vegan protein shake at 1/3 strength, choline, phenylpiracitam, and the old standby of l-theanine and caffeine, and 750mg NaCl.
This makes a 25oz “shake” that tatses worse than vomit. But all of this ensures I secrete almost zero insulin, my kidneys are happily just processing water, my liver is in a Zen state, and I have tons of non jittery energy.
It’s kinda (actually very similar) to soylent, but tastes way worse.
