My weird thought of the day was if I could somehow have mindfulness meditation a part of my workout routine.

I mentioned it to my PT, who then told me they had practiced meditation during a burnout period of their own, and they have a CD somewhere for something like this.

So I guess that's happening now.

Do you even lift, brah? Nah, I sit in the corner being mindful of my breathing.

We bought Borderlands3 for the PS4 for some of that split screen bonding, and oh, the menu lag is so real.

Also, the switch to horizontal split screen made all the text so tiny we had to move the couch just make any sense of it.

Tip: the default FOV made me fee nauseous. Drop it to 70 for maximum comfort.

Can we talk about burnout? I've never been burned out but I feel like I've been close to the edge several times these past few years. I've always been a generalist, but now I'm a generalist who also plans, designs, talks with clients, coordinates and implements. This, while I appreciate the trust, is causing a buzzing sound in my ear when walking to work this week. I forget things like my debit ping codes, ordinary words and what else. It's getting A Bit Too Much for me.

I’m unsure if my diminishing interest in playing games is caused by maturing as a person or creeping anhedonia.

rebranding empathy as a “cognitive exercise” for the next generation of #men

I wonder if switching to Ubuntu for my next desktop would give me less tech headaches or more tech headaches.

I want to buy the old/new Nokia phone. Do a bit of digital downgrading in my life, because I don’t feel like I’m entirely in control of my habits.

This week was a rollercoaster at work. Glad it's over!

My email accounts have the total combined number of unread items... 7 329.

I don't know how to deal with this.

Funny thing, I listened to this book while commuting to work, being all medidative and like... And I was super grumpy once I got to the office. :)

I paraphrase a book I listened to a few days back... When you feel a need or a want, you are in fact /experiencing a mind creating a need/. Can't recall the exact line, but it sounded pretty funky at the time.

I'm looking at tofu recepies, and they all look a bit too daunting for my level.
I guess I oughta just try frying some and not even try making a meal out of them. See how it turns out.

Thing with the 3D models I played with a month or so back is that they're not exactly real-time optimized. I'd have to either sit down and take the time to make proper work to them or half-arse it and see if I can get Alembic files to play on the thing.

I'm kind of tempted to order an OculusQuest and start making fun stuff for it. But I feel like I should keep saving more money.
Reee!

I need to find new interests. Currently most I do during evenings are almost too sensible, and there's nothing I do purely to enjoy it.

Yesterday I experimented cooking veggie pasta sauce. Half a kilo of carrots and a capsicum to replace minced meat. Worked surprisingly well!

~✿* My history with JavaScript *✿~

*JavaScript introduced to Netscape*
:blobowo: "This is cool"

*AJAX appears*
:blobuwu: "Yes, useful"

*Early 'port X to JS' experiments*
:blobowo: "Haha it's a fun experiment"

*node.js*
:blobthinkingeyes: ".. um"

*Production software moves to webapps*
:blobnervous: "Wait"

*Electron everywhere*
:blobtired: "Oh no"

I'm trying to get my dietary spendings back on track and get back into cooking proper.

Try and come up with meals that would last more than one day.

What are your go-to recepies?
