Back from Korea today, off to Melbourne tomorrow. My cat no longer recognizes me

Hooray, found my passport in minutes without a house-wide search this time. Certainly makes packing a lot less stressful.

lol got a text from Woolworths about an incoming storm and thought to myself "since when do grocery stores send weather warnings?" completely forgetting I recently switched to their home insurance. πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Testing the limits of the todo list by putting implausible things on there... and this is why I've been baking my own bread and why I just singlehandedly cut down a tree twice my size

I installed todoist the other day and started making lists of all the things I should do. At first I enjoyed the productivity, but I just kept adding more and more things each day and now I'm kind of regretting the whole thing except I'm addicted so I can't stop. For example, today I whipper snippered the whole yard, did a bunch of house work, built some shelves, studied several Mandarin lessons, exercised, didn't do anything fun, and now I'm exhausted but I still feel like a lazy failure πŸ˜”

PSA for social media advertising algorithms and anyone else who is interested: those bamboo toothbrush subscriptions where you get a new toothbrush every 6 weeks for $40 per person per year - it's cheaper to buy a bulk pack of 10 for around $5 on AliExpress and there'll be less packaging too, or if you only want one at a time, 59c including shipping

Trying a new thing: Archived the 55K emails in my inbox because why not? First time ever at inbox zero

Impressed and slightly terrified that when I started typing a random question into Google it autocompleted to my exact specific question after typing one and a half words: "what lang..."

Decided to make a to-do list of housechores today. Not only got through them but also had time for reading, more drawing and kdrama. I'm thinking I might try todoist after reading about it on letsqueerthingsup, because this level of productivity is unprecedented bne.social/media/4GpBdZU8nXg0e

In the kdrama I'm watching now, instead of falling back on the cliche of setting their monarchy-based plotline in some tiny fictional European country like your average Netflix Christmas special, they simply invented a contemporary royal family for Korea. I lol every time someone refers to the main character as the King of the Republic of Korea 🀣

uh oh, I woke up in an anti-capitalist mood

Getting meta with my viewing: watching a drama about a kdrama fan who finds herself in a kdrama and has to move the plot forward to get out

It's such a wonderful feeling to arrive home on Friday evening after a long, challenging week of training and workshops and sit in silence doing absolutely nothing

The next Muses Code JS (formerly NodeGirls) is on the same day as Global Diversity CFP so I can't help out at both. Last year Global Diversity CFP day was the same day as Elixr Girls. It makes me sad when tech community inclusivity events clash

OMFG I am useless. Despite sending myself a reminder toot weeks ago I completely forgot to remember world pangolin day ***again*** (It was on Saturday)

I only realised when I saw this picture by "The Latest Kate". I guess the sentiment is that it's ok to mess up. But I am still so annoyed at myself

I should have tried to learn the chords or played through it before recording it, but this is the song I was feeling today: unpolished uke cover of Desert Garden

Do you feel like I do
tired of everything?
Can you feel what I can
almost everything?
I want to leave today
The sky is big and my life is small
I want to leave with you
so we can build a perfect garden. The stars are far away
I can see them with my eyes
I watch then fade away
like the moments of my life

Opened Netflix thinking I'd watch 'Russian Doll' because people were saying good things about it, but nope I only lasted a few minutes. Switched to 'Siempre Bruja' - supernatural young adult drama is much more my thing
