As I walked back across the Kurilpa to my car at QPAC after the stargazing world record event tonight, I passed the William Jolly lit up like the fighting dragon nebula, a group of people partying along with a jazzy live band covering Daft Punk outside GOMA, and many runners on the boardwalk next to the mangroves participating in the Darkness to Daylight challenge to raise money for domestic violence prevention. Sometimes this little town feels very lively
At the stargazing at Roma st Park waiting in line for a telescope. I was feeling lazy so I’m wearing a blanket over my gym gear. At least I’ll be a comfortable nerdy loner
Was not organised / social enough to find anyone to go with to the stargazing tonight, and there will be so many people there, I am starting to regret getting a ticket
Some years ago I tried Hello Fresh but quit after a couple of months because literally every vegetarian meal contained either rocket or feta (I'm not a big fan of either). They offered me a free meal box to try to lure me back.... why am I not surprised?
So tired and sore after physio today. Even my bruises have bruises
A co-organiser at DjangoCon Europe, Sasha, wrote a post about volunteer burnout, how conference organising has changed, and what issues we face as a community: https://medium.com/@mxsash/are-we-not-all-volunteer-organisers-here-and-does-it-matter-498e300e7366
Working with Sasha has always been a pleasure and I understand completely where she is coming from. I don't have any answers either.
I managed to salvage the afternoon by making a new batch of kombucha as well as assembling the first piece of IKEA furniture I have allowed in the house * - a step stool, because I am too short to reach the top shelves in my room and lugging the piano bench in anytime I needed to reach something was becoming tedious.
* I loathe flatpack furniture but at least it's made from real wood
Bleh. Just wasted too much time trying to get my old IoT lights connected again - the official app was upgraded so it doesn't support the older version of the wifi box they connect to anymore. There's a node library that should still work with them but that seems like more effort than I am willing to invest. At least I still have the remote.
Today's candidate for articles I wish were satire
As I headed out to the gym early this morning, I enjoyed how fresh and cool the weather is - we don't get much winter here but today is lovely.
*gulp* Signed up for a free Wing Chun workshop on Saturday so I guess I am really doing this thing
Slightly disappointed by my lunch choices today - a rather bland Lo Bak Go followed by white pearl plum tea - I definitely prefer the regular black pearls
Got my flu shot at the chemist today. On the plus side it was quicker and easier than a doctor's visit but I had to stick around in store for 15 minutes afterwards, so of course I bought stuff. Pretty good rort they've got going there.
Felt like I was being a responsible adult by setting myself a midnight curfew instead of staying up watching kdrama to the early hours.
Runined it by waking up at 4:30 to watch kdrama this morning.
