It’s tough to get up when one has had a tough time sleeping due to a cold. That’s me this morning.
Here is a rule to remember in future, when anything tempts you to feel bitter: not ‘This is misfortune’, but ‘To bear this worthily is good fortune.’ – Marcus Aurelius
Today’s the first day of the first season of the new Overwatch League. I’ll be trying to watch as much of it as I can online, and then in-person this Saturday. I’m rooting for the LA Gladiators. Shields UP!
I started reading The Magician’s Nephew again last night. I’m going through the Chronicles of Narnia in their intended order to see if it feels like a smoother flow than the published order. We’ll see.
That feeling when you need a specific site login and don’t have it handy. This, even though you’ve long had a password vault properly setup (or so you thought) for year, kept up to date, and able to log in.
On one specific computer.
At your *work* computer (work requires it.)
You thought you had it properly set to sync with your home PC, phone, and a laptop.
Then, you need a specific login, so you try to log in from home, and the login is stale on all your home machines, so it’s no-go.
Having to actually wait to go into the office to fix something potentially fixable remotely kind of sucks.
I tried to find some old papers I’d written in high school, for the composition class I was in, but they seemed to be buried super deep somewhere in the bowels of my closet, so the search is postponed for a while, or at least until a very sizable purge occurs.
Intending to transcribe them into posts here and possibly practice some revision on them, I thought that might be an interesting exercise. My writing style was probably a bit different a few decades ago. Oh, well. Someday I’ll find that stuff.
It’s the first Saturday of 2018, and I still need to focus a bit on making sure I type the year correctly.
Just me having some fun in the snow, virtually. It’s 6 versus 6 elimination match where every character has a snowball gun that fires a single round before needing reloading-via patches of snow spread throughout the map. This is a fun seasonal mode in the game of Overwatch. It’s a fun break from even the quick-play matches and a good way to blow off steam after some tough ranked matches.
When I wake in the morning, I listen for the usual sounds, like birds and a little bit of the wind. Sometimes, the sounds of a distant train reach me ears, or, a nearby helicopter (I’m close to a freeway.) Pretty often, as well, I hear my nephew getting rambunctious downstairs.
I’m participating in the A-to-Z Challenge! Today’s letter is E. You can find out more about it here:
