I am finally over with school.
One more report to do and I am done, easy

I made a recent, somewhat embarrassing discovery - somehow I have a toothpaste stain on nearly all of my junk t-shirts (shirts I wear before bed, doing work around the house, etc.). Part of me is very impressed that I must be so consistent in the way I brush my teeth that the stain is always in the same place. The other part of me wonders why I'm a tad bit of a slob...

Alrighty, I am pretty much done with school. One last final project for the weekend and I am good to go

ok, maybe my last rage of the day: now I'm moving to a new apartment and it turns out that the electric company I used a decade ago still has an online account open in my name. Is this not a security concern? That makes no sense to me. If I'm not paying for your services anymore and I haven't accessed your site in x number of days, you should be required to delete my account. No, there is no way for me to delete it.

As much as I hate social media sites, it is nice that they conveniently have a "download all data". I mean, they shouldn't have that data in the first place, but still. Meanwhile, I'm here trying to close a bank account and i have to download the files one by one... I'm grabbing the first handful and saying screw it, hoping I'll be OK.

"Maybe if I warm you up slowly, like a lobster, you won't notice."
"Slowly?! You just dropped me into a 400deg oven! And it hurts!"
"Just hold on, we're almost there"
*first crack
"Ah, that feels so much better"
"Just wait until second crack!"
"Wait, there's another one?!"

mental health 

So, I woke up this morning, cooked myself a good breakfast, and sat down to do some updates. Was almost immediately slammed with feelings of laziness and inadequacy. Why?? I do not wish mental health issues on anyone and really hope if you are going through them you can find help. I don't understand any of it, why our minds are so jacked up sometimes. All we can do is press on and try to find joy where we can.

and then in my frustration I accidentally copied the folder on my LineageOS phone and now there is a copy of it *inside* the same folder and double the files have been synced. smh

sometimes works amazing. other times - I'm waiting 30 minutes while the folders each say "syncing (99%)" for 5mb of things...

Honestly, I don't want to read about it here. I've been gone since 2017.

Let's build the better world and leave that dumpster fire far behind.

one of the most interesting things I've ran into lately is people that are OCD about the cleanliness of their dishes but lacking in basic hygiene elsewhere. I don't understand it. I mean, if you don't wash your hands, it doesn't matter how clean the dishes are

@AaronTheGuy Brett Cannon wrote a fabulous blog post about this:

My favorite bit:

> With this example in mind, do you think it is reasonable to go up to my front door, knock, and then proceed to yell at me if you didn't like the software you chose to pick up off of my front yard for free? 🤨 How about leaving an angry letter in my mailbox? Or a flaming bag of 💩 on my doorstep? Or standing in the middle of the street in my town and yelling about how much you hate my software? This is what it's like when you email me angrily, open an issue in anger, or complain loudly on the internet. Does any of that seem reasonable? To me, this actually ranges from rude to unethical.

the browser police are at it again. besides operating systems, browsers seem to be one of the most debated items. If you feel like you use the best, please, do argue. But there doesn't seem to be a perfect solution (yet)

my random thought of the day: I often get aggressively made fun of by 40-60 year old women. Like, AGGRESSIVELY. Having heard from multiple women in that age category (who don't make fun of me) that I'm attractive to them, I'm starting to wonder if I'm just attractive to that age group in general, and thus the women aggressively making fun of me are actually flirting/venting some weird sexual frustration.

US based companies - banning visitors outside of the US bc you don't want to comply with GDPR is not the answer. smh. Seriously, like wtf. Just comply with GDPR. In other news, I wish the US could get their act together and pass a similar law. I wish I could say it's baffling but it's not. Par for the course unfortunately.

apparently a passenger with no flight experience landed a cessna caravan after the pilot had a medical emergency. My faith in humanity is restored!!
