Nothing quite like joining a WebEx to hear your boss and co-worker talking about how we can’t keep quarantine up, and that our governor can’t keep extending it. Cause people won’t stand for it! We have to return to normal sometime!

I played two more hours today. Spent twenty minutes playing darts in Seventh Heaven. I love this game.

I don’t agree with all the decisions Square-Enix made with FF7R, but my biggest fear was that it was going to be a lazy cash grab.

After 2.5 hours, it’s plain that isn’t the case. The team working on this LOVES the original. Every time I’ve stopped to look closer at something I can see they wanted me to. They expected me to stop and scrutinize the details, and they sweated over each of them.

Don't give up on self care just because something didn't work for you. Keep trying new ways of being kind to yourself!

This morning I learned that a fresh scone and coffee is better than bacon and coffee.

My quarantine life is separated into before my three year old found Blippi, and after.

It’s at, if you need a link.

If you’re in need of extra tools to deal with your mental health over the next several months, Headspace has released a large meditation pack designed for just that.

It’s got 10-20 min sessions, 10 day courses, SOS sessions, and sleep sounds. It’s free.

App is on iOS / Android.

Sorry, spider-that-fell-on-my-head. It was a reflex.

I am suddenly struck with the intense desire to go out and buy a used guitar.

Good morning, Shop.

I’ve been ignoring my basics: proper diet, sleep, meditation, reading, limited twitter. For, like, a week.

I feel like crap. Don’t do that to yourself.

I started today with some meditation. I picked a good, comforting book to reread off my shelf. I shut off twitter. And I’m going to get to bed early tonight.

If you can, do one of these things for yourself today.

Why did I decide to subscribe to my local Letter to the Editor RSS feed? I knew it was going to be bad, and dumb. And also: bad.

Nope - I overreacted. Our director does a mandatory downhill every quarter… and it’s the end of a quarter.

There was a lot of news around COVID and how the company is adjusting, but no layoffs or mass furlough. *exhale*

Work brag (+) 

Just got a meeting invitation from our director for an all hands on deck meeting at 7AM, and a meeting at 1PM - both on Thursday. Email said pick one to attend.

Feels like we getting furloughed/laid off/fired.
