Instead of Thanksgiving dinner generating leftovers for tomorrow, our Thanksgiving dinner WAS leftovers: some microwaved meatballs and chicken parmesan, along with some pasta with just had olive oil because the leftover sauce in the fridge had gotten moldy

After two years of not staying anywhere but my relatively minimalist apartment, which doesn't even have anything on the walls, visiting my parents and seeing *stuff* everywhere is kind of overwhelming. Just being in the living room feels like having a loud TV commercial playing in my mind

trying to write my annual self-assessment thing for work and trying to figure out something besides "I SURVIVED DIDN'T I"

doing nanowrimo on hard mode this year because i decided i'm not allowed to use any semicolons


I tried making Impossible meat for the first time, but it seems the smell of it cooking makes me nauseous. I had to open the windows and Febreze my kitchen and sheepishly swap back to real meat…

today my manager was like “hey I saw your tweet about burnout and…same” (in so many words) which I guess is good

I want to see the Trails game with the Tales budget

damn y'all ever tear up at a PODCAST
