Found a vegan protein that is no-carb finally. I'm super happy as I am now needing to be ultra-low carb. Ketosis is the only thing that actually helps my arthritis pain now. It's a tasty protein but is annoying expensive. I guess adding to the narrative that being sick is expensive. Wheee.

Hey just letting you know I made that stuffed squash thing you recommend a couple weeks ago and it was super good. So thanks for that.

My job is scheduling specialty medications to be delivered to patients with chronic conditions.

Every time I see that they have an out of pocket cost that's over $50 or their medication is delayed because their health insurance hasn't authorized their prescription for several weeks, or they can't get their medication because of some ridiculous policy, I'm overcome with a roiling hatred for the healthcare industry; this happens at least once a day.

I hate when I can't lit the heater bc I can't pay the electric bill..

My neighbor jokingly said to me: "who is your tenant? We probably should squat this whole building.." -I smiled and agreed before saying goodnight.

The thing is, the building is small I would love to squat it and run it like a good squat.. it's heartbreaking to see kids and families dying in fires bc the electrical connections in the squat was bad (and then there are skinhead attacks against these ppl, bc they are mostly migrants).

Fuck, one week more and I still without energy to simply do the things I like, to read and study what I want..

For utilities it is someone achievable to set up some off grid utilities like heat n electricity for less than 500 dollars that don't have risk of fire. Plus they let u squat in areas without utils set up. Tho I bet most squatters don't have that much money to spend on that sadly.

everything is grey and wet today.

I've been trying to repair my computer screen: the ccfl backlight lamp broke and I'm replacing them with leds. It's the first time I'm doing microelectronics seriously and it's really fun, learning about components and stuff.

So my immediate coworkers (the people on the bottom of the totem like me) decided they wanted to do a secret santa amongst ourselves. And I legitimately like my coworkers so I decided, why not I'll be involved this time (I usually try not to involve myself with work stuff). Well some bootlicker decided to ask our manager to join the pool (I didn't know this). And I got the manager. This is my nightmare.

Been having some really good progress with work and housing which is really nice n anxiety inducing. Pretty sure I'm going to put an offer on a home soon. Annoying to deal with a lot of self doubt n worry since I seriously messed up my last attempt.

With my work continues at my current progression I should be able to pull off one of my most impressive mutual aid projects yet. Which is exciting to look forward towards.

For almost all the cheap houses I'm looking at they are in in vast majority black neighborhoods. Like a slightly over one percent white population. Nothing wrong with that but it will be a massive culture shock for me. Moving from an area so white that I have a decent amount of family members who are against interacting relationship.

So I bet my move will have me live in an area vastly different than what I'm used to so I will be able to learn and grow a lot. Which is cool.

Been smoking too much tbh. Still deciding if I want to limit my use or not bc I really like to smoke but shit is bad for u lol.

I've been starting to get pangs of loneliness as I've been in one of my anti social moods again. But still not enough that I feel like trying to make friends or hang out with people. Tho I think most of my social interactions being with people who I don't like that well or being bickering wit people on social media isn't probably the best. Tho I have no real desire to look for friends atm. Tho I think part of it is that it's really hard to find people I would actually like or who understand me. So I have to spend lots of time and effort to make friends and the friends being people who I wouldn't like to talk to is probably why my current anti social moods has been going on for so long.

I live doing the most anxiety inducing things possible all the time but dealing with all the anxiety all the time is rough. Lol

I saw a lovely tiktok last night. It was a young woman saying as an adult the way she made friends is just acted like the person she wanted to be friends with was already her friend until they acquiesced. I thought this was really cool and a strategy I'd like to try buuuut....I haven't met anyone cool enough to just latch onto like that. Sooo...what I'm saying is that I can relate to your sentiment of being antisocial because why put in the effort for someone who isn't cool?

The next virus variant needs to have a Transformers name. Omicron is a gateway.

Sleep is hard

My current sleep schedule is just intermittently not sleeping and then sleeping at 6 pm in order to wake up in time

Only kinda joking Xd hopefully this week will be better. Wish I was able to just sleep when I'm tired though, not desperately struggle to fit someone's arbitrary schedule. I can't do anything though, unless if I was able to convince my parents to allow me be homeschooled

Working on a theme and variation for itsy bitsy spider. Right now I am just composing it but the eventual plan is to perform it on guitar obviously. Its been fun but also kind of hard, my music writing skills are pretty rusty and they weren't amazing to begin with. I might share some of what I have via a midi file if anyone is interested. I wouldn't mind some kind constructive criticisms. To help get my brain juices running I listened to Mozart's variations on twinkle twinkle little star and it is incredible imo.

I am realizing I am spending more time arranging song pieces than actually practicing/playing anything though. Probably should work on that. Not enough hours in the day really.

Wife is urging me to get a new cell phone but I don't think I will. I kind of have a good love hate relationship with my pinephone. Yesterday I couldn't use it at all because I had a kernel panic, it was fantastic.
