Life Is Like A Box Of...
Life is like a box of chocolates... it gets empty very quickly.
Just Because You're Trash...
I have no idea who said this first but props Bren The Man on bringing this into my light! I like. Garbage: the world is your can.
I Would Defrag My Head...
I would defrag my head but brains are not contiguous.
No Kamikaze Logic - Another Sunday Post
No more Kamikaze this week! I've been sorting files and listening to Logic interviews instead. And YBN Cordae. And others. While I do things like sift through photos and manage some by now much overdue backups, which I'm doing both locally and via the cloud, to this one service called MEGA.
MEGA is so much better now! You can upload entire folders now! I threw in a folder at a time, 100-200 photos each, and it didn't *knock on wood - still uploading - at least I was when I started writing this* crash a single time. Forget that: 600 files at once!!! It can handle that now. It used to crash at a hundred or less, and lag up the browser... though it's possible updating browser settings, and/or the browser and/or disabling multiprocessor support also had something to do with it.
But it can handle folders now, and just that's pretty cool. It loads faster too.
I was going to post this post last Sunday, but time just ran away back then. This week I've been on a zone therapy session, banged my toe against a chair so the nail turned black (no need for nail polish now if I ever needed it - not that I ever did), and have been hanging out with my nephew - just stopping by - the last couple of days. We've been touring the city, going to cafes and waterfronts and Fotografiska, a photography museum which apart from having exquisite exhibitions also seems like an exceptional cultural hub. Their cafe was packed, live music played in another room, and they even had real towels in the bathrooms. It's a pretty cool place. I also hung out with Buddy Bear one night and watched this old thing.
The week before this one I visited Bergrummet (a private toy museum with a pretty impressive showcase) with another buddy, and was supposed to go to a restaurant too but caught a stomach bug instead. We rebooked the restaurant a few days later but I wasn't OK yet so we booked it yet again, this coming week.
A couple days after this I ate a bag of chips, and realized I shouldn't have done that, so I've been keeping a mild diet for a while thereafter... as well as two days prior to the chips. Stayed home from work one day and that was that. Work and a variety of other tasks (been delving into online auctions too, booking trips to Tallinn and Malaga, voice acting a new role) apparently took up the rest of my time...
Oh, and we celebrated Father's Day! With some Russian chocolate from Lithuania and home-made cake that I couldn't eat (stomach bug still).
I've also been tagging up posts en masse, correcting various small site issues, and trying to find referrals for Initiative Q before my time limit runs out. People are just too skeptic. If you know you can't lose anything on something, then you can only potentially profit from it, right? Possible win/win. No possible loss/loss. I managed 4/5 referrals on the last day.
Speaking of something else entirely: I've had way too many reviews in my backlog for some time now, and they just seem to be adding up more and more, so here's a hundred I'm taking away. I'll just leave them here. In this post. Maybe some day with more time to spare I can come back to this and watch a few, or realize I've worked my way through a bunch of them without knowing it. I still hope to watch these but I just don't want the backlog right now. It's too much. Cleaning out my faucet.

There. Maybe I'll get back to those later on.
Regarding these weekly posts: I just keep coming back to them. There have been phases where they felt like an unwanted routine, but every time I'm in a good mood; when life's going well and I feel like blogging... this is just the optimal time and day to do so. It feels like I'm back on these indefinitely, but I fear announcing it decisively since maybe the pressure of routine will amount again and I'll want to take a break...
Speaking of the George Orwell thing I posted recently I just stumbled upon this thing from 2015! What are the odds. Overall it's been a good week, and the next one's looking to be just as eventful! I'll speak to you in a few.
