Should I take a sabbatical?

Comment

I have this as an official backup option, and I am doing my best to not need it.

Despite my best efforts without being pushy, I am running out of time with way too many things out of my control working against me.

The wait is slowly wearing me down.

Momentum is getting positive. Dinner tonight will be pasta with pesto. Dessert will be key lime pie gelato.

Tired, dehydrated, or COVID? That is my primary troubleshooting for today.

Not to like, Mom at you but water is a good idea regardless. <3

Sense of taste is still OK -- but I am not so much feeling like eating. Honestly, I am more concerned about having a major cardiovascular incident by the end of this week.

Nothing screams self-important narcissist louder than a presidential motorcade shutting down the Vegas Strip (and the pedestrian bridges going across it) right in the middle of a busy Saturday night.

I need to go to the apple store this weekend. I haven't been since July.

TIL my town has an ordinance that bans plastic shopping bags. It has been in place since June, but I guess my local grocer only recently ran out of plastic.

Comment

I am going to need a sturdier cart for bringing groceries up from the car if I get paper bags.

It bans stores from giving them to you, right? It doesn't ban you from bringing your own? If you absolutely need plastic, you can buy cases of them on Amazon.

You can buy reusable bags, they are usually pretty cheap and decent.

I did bring my own bags today (and that had been allowed again since July).

I did a poor job of basically everything today -- especially with eating.

Finally eating. I ordered a couple of things from the 99 for curbside takeaway. It's been that kind of week, momentum-wise.

Whoa. Bon Appetit just did a massive reboot of... well... everything. First YouTube video in months was released today. I like the entirely new everything they have going on.

Comment

I'm interested to see what they'll do - Conde Nast is often the worst, and I'll need to see them doing a lot better over a sustained time before I believe in their changes.

Momentum has been good today.

I did have a bit of a scare, though, when my computer decided to randomly reboot right in the middle of a Webex. Fortunately, that happened *before* the call where that happening would have meant disaster.

I did not need to see that bit of news. The world (and especially that particular place) does not need that happening right now.

Too much of the evening was spent looking for new opportunities, yet I did an abysmal job of attempting the task at hand. I need to stop for a few hours.

Comment

Not having any opportunity for feedback (or to even get a look) until Monday or Tuesday at the earliest is the tough part. I have some things moving really fast, but the timing for the right opportunity is everything.

 ‎· Julian 1
Comment

Pausing and taking a break sounds like a good idea, but I know for me the urgency of securing a new opportunity and the uncertainty of not having one is stressful. So, sending good wishes and cats!

I was mostly guilty of this yesterday and most of today. Eating now. Important calls tomorrow -- and hopefully, my phone will be exploding as well.

In better news, my order of tea and spices could be arriving as soon as tomorrow!

Protect Governor Whitmer.

(misread as whitman, nm).

I usually avoid using this characterization because its general overuse. But the Michigan GOP disgusts me in its cowardice in the face of and accommodation of domestic terrorism. While at the same time they recoil in "horror" at the instances of violence associated with protests for racial justice. They bear direct responsibility for this act. Their rhetoric and legislative action have emboldened white supremacy in Michigan. They practically fled Lansing when protesters rallied against Whitmer's executive orders designed to stem the spread of COVID. But *now* they're contemplating the wisdom of allowing open carry in and around the state capitol. It's a little late.

^ living in a state with open carry at our capitol, I feel like the only reason we didn't also see this is that our session had ended the week before the COVID shutdown hit. I still fear for our public officials, especially since one of our Representatives has previously manipulated law enforcement for the gain of violent militias, and called for action against his own peers.

I am occasionally going to need reminders and nudges to eat. I went most of today on just half of a pumpkin muffin and tea consumed in the morning. I am now enjoying a sirloin steak and salad.

did you eat this morning?

I should sleep. However, I need to something that has been getting put off for way too long -- making myself more professionally presentable and appealing in places online that matter.
