First of February, Twenty Twenty

Dang, so today was a pretty great day. Saturdays usually are. Work from home, really chill. No need to commute to or from the office so that's an extra 40-ish minutes each day, and it means that 3pm (yeah sorry 25-year-old Shaun, I decided that using the 24-hour-clock all the time was not really conducive to clear communication so I've walked back on it a bit. A lot.) rolls around I can go right from work to a bunch of YouTube videos that have accumulated in my tabs and have been sitting there since before the shift.

Had a tweet go kinda big, there was a funny tweet about some new PETA nonsense, so gave the tweet a like then wrote a reply calling out the organization for killing animals, which linked to this article in The Atlantic.

Ate a tasty homemade lunch.

Really the only kinda not-great things about life is that I don't have a lot of money at the moment (I mean, I have an okay or almost okay amount in my savings and I've got some crypto investments doing fairly well, enough for a plane ticket to anywhere if I book far enough in advance), my glasses frame broke (but the tape holding them together is working fairly well and I've already got replacements ordered), and another Fairly Big Thing possibly looming as the result of a Very Big Thing that happened a few months ago. 17-year-old Shaun would've just outright said what those things were, but I guess I've learned some discretion in the intervening decade. Well, perhaps not enough. The Very Big Thing is that my dad died, but I don't want to write about it here since this is (was?) supposed to be a post about the good day I had.

Would've put this on my Tumblr, but I've just left and so according to the pattern of past behaviour it'll be another two years before I'm back. Could've put this in r/vent but, uh, meh. I wanted to update this blog outta nowhere anyway. I think it's kinda funny.

I have a website, I've owned the domain for a while but it doesn't work and hasn't for a while. Used to point to my Steam profile, not sure why it stopped working.

But yeah, good day. It's nice to stay home and just watch a lot of videos and read a lot of stuff and possibly check out a podcast after this. Just kinda wish I had more money. Perhaps I should get a more difficult job, or move to someplace where the currency is a lot stronger.

Am I gonna tag this post? Nah. Perhaps I'll come back to it and tag it someday instead of making a new post. Yeah, if I ever wanna interact with this blog again, that's how I'll do it.
