Free course starts tomorrow:

“In this course you will engage in a series of challenges designed to increase your own happiness and build more productive habits. As preparation for these tasks, Professor Laurie Santos reveals misconceptions about happiness, annoying features of the mind that lead us to think the way we do, and the research that can help us change.”

Today I am grateful for completing the vaccination process for COVID-19.

Ugh, espn has this one instead of NBC. ESPN is amateur hour, basically the CNN of sports.

Today I am grateful for some reasonable weather and a nice long walk.

Grateful to be making even more progress on my backlog of projects and responsibilities. Especially while sipping on some great local beer.

Today I am grateful that I was able to begin organizing and unpacking my retro tech collection.

I am also thankful for reaching the 100 toot milestone.

I’m really grateful that I got all of my out-of-the-house errands done today.

Productive day so far, I think I’ll take myself to lunch

It’s happened, I’m officially old. My favorite gaming system from my youth (Sega Nomad) is now selling for stupid high prices. Was just on goodwill’s website and one was selling for three times what it cost new. So I looked it up on eBay only to find out that was actually a pretty good deal

Looking forward to a wide open weekend with no distractions. Hope to unpack all my tech and do some much needed updates on my poorly maintained website.

Weird, even with the shutter perfectly centered & open my Face ID will not work as long as the shutter is installed. Must be some kind of proximity thing.
