Ok, the year is flying by — please stop?
A lot of rains this month. Not enjoying them as much as an adult as I did adolescent. I guess that also has to do with the state of things in a developing/poorer country. The infrastructure almost never copes with anything more than mild showers.
At this point in time, I feel like I have no energy for anything but work and relaxing and working on my fat loss journey. That’s literally it. My plate is full.
And oh, the environment? Why bother when Taylor Swift and Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner and all of them millionaires and billionaires are “flexing” and renting out and using their private jets like a car. We can’t catch up. I can’t catch up.
I mean, I did buy an e-bike recently for going around town, so I’m still making those choices when I can. But it feels absolutely futile. The green factor is an added bonus point, but not the reason for it.
A special shout-out to Cheri Baker‘s “Where Does Blogging Fit In?” section on her No Social Media Club post. Hard relate.
In other news, I’ve taken one step back from my personal fedi account in a bid to work on and improve my mental health. It wasn’t helping to dump negativity all the time. And the change is definitely helping, among other measures.
I’m going to start a new contract very soon, and although not a fan of the tech stack, I just can’t be bothered anymore. Feels similar to what I feel for the environment.
It should be interesting though. It’s a 4-day work week with an option to work the 5th if I feel like it.
