it's weird to remember what it was like downloading a single MP3 in 2000 and compare that to how I just accidentally left a 4K video streaming for 45 minutes without even noticing

it is very hard for video games to have both recruitable party members and also banter among those party members because it's not obvious how well they're supposed to know each other yet

anyway: this talking book needs to chill

Last night I almost checked in something at work and thought "I'm tired, I should hold off until tomorrow"…just now found that I was JUSTIFIED because I CAUGHT A MISTAKE and I'm more excited about it than if I had just gotten everything right the first time

i just bought a virtual concert ticket for an artist i already saw virtually last year, because i guess she's back on virtual tour for 2021? fucking pandemic

I’m still using the year 2000 as a vague anchor point when estimating years—e.g. things in the 80s happened ‘around 20 years ago.’ I will be extremely susceptible to memes asking if I am ready to feel old until I can break this habit

i like when i put on a background noise kind of youtube stream, like lofi girl, and see a comment that's just a real straightforward mundane student concern like "ugh math homework :("

I used a lint roller on the cover of my journal just now but I haven't vacuumed my actual floor in like six weeks

i thought tonight might be the night i get into hitman but that is the exact opposite energy that i want, whoops

i didn't go hard on refreshing websites for graphics cards and i'm not going to do it for vaccines. instead i will get an appointment in the way that god intended: by clicking on an affiliate link from wario64

when i got back from grocery shopping my power was out so i texted my landlord and then went to check out the breaker box in the basement; the apartment next to mine had some of _its_ breakers tripped, so i went back upstairs and found a guy doing work in there and he apologized and we got it sorted…but it's been years since i've actually seen my landlord and have forgotten what he looks like so i don't know if that was him or not

DoorDash implies the existence of DoorDance and DoorPrance

good typo I saw: "Sorry for Partly Rocking"

a limited-edition Call of Duty controller, with digital camo or whatever, where they change one of the face buttons to an F

raising my new sitting/standing desk hybrid so that my messy room is out of the webcam frame when I join work calls

you ever have a week that effectively undoes a vacation immediately
