I'm so excited about my upcoming trip to Japan. I should be packing but instead I'm drawing 😊

I've been watching videos of every version of baby shark to procrastinate from finishing doing my tax, which says a lot about how much I hate doing tax.

Things I am excited about tonight in no particular order:

* New roller skating venue grand opening tomorrow afternoon - gonna wear my purple skates
* AliExpress global shopping festival coming up on the 11th - wish-listing all the things
* Make-up class at Sephora tomorrow morning - maybe I'll finally learn how to be a real girl
* Browsing pretty tattoo designs on insta
* I'm going to Japan in a week!!! πŸ™πŸŒΈπŸ‘πŸ―

For some reason today my work Macbook keeps getting confused and playing sound through both my Bluetooth headphones and the external display at the same time. I was mortified when I realised but my colleagues didn't tell me because they said they were enjoying the music. 😰

I am eating a pineapple pie. I can't believe I never knew this was a thing until now 🍍

Things I love about my team: every morning we have an impromptu meeting in the work kitchen while we make and eat breakfast. Toasted cheese sandwiches, eggs, yoghurt, oats... We often have a brief afternoon snack meeting too. Every standup should involve food.

Broke the team uniform streak - Elise is elegant in black today but I am wearing llamas! πŸ˜€

* I would have been delightfully surprised if we'd matched today

Oh this is so cool: I just found out that this pencil that I bought on impulse because it called out to me as I passed by the window of a bookstore, which I am now using to write in my journal, was designed in honor of Ada Lovelace. The hexagons down the side spell out her initials in binary 😍
