Link love

Food aid needed because of the earthquake in Turkiye..

Florida Fascism redux.


Challenge update:

Watched quite a bit of YouTube last weekend.  Slipped up a couple times but mostly caught myself.

Monday I was deeply depressed about my lack of progress and couldn’t hide from my thoughts with Twitter or Reddit.  I had to feel them.

Tuesday I seemed to recover a bit and talked to DH in the morning about what I hadn’t been getting done and why.  He sat down with me and 15 min later I had a plan.  Finally submitted the thing I’d been avoiding.  Hopefully they’ll hold onto it for a few days before desk rejecting because I need a break from constant rejection.  I also finally started reading an Econ book I need to read.

Wednesday I worked pretty steadily.  No twitter, stopped myself shortly after I opened reddit.

Thursday/Friday I was at a conference and the wifi/cell were both terrible so I had to turn to airplane mode!

I’ve been making headway in a couple non-fiction books I’ve been putting off reading.  For some reason it’s easier to read them now.

    Is this what a midlife crisis feels like, I wonder? I can so relate to the scrolling addiction and it was never really a problem til recently. And I realize that listening and reading about other people’s drama is not adding to my quality of life.

    Reading is so much harder lately. I just don’t seem to have big enough blocks of time to get immersed or am so tired I fall asleep. I have nothing constructive to add except maybe it’s happening to a lot of us.

    Bizarrely, I focused a hell of a lot better on work when I had a working Twitter to pop in and out of.
