Ugh, this week has not been a good week for the brain squirrels and today was especially bad. But meditation got done! Today was about finding the "flow" but I don't think I did.

Today's quote really hit home. My partner commented that I've been all over the place and not focusing lately.

Today is the first day back to work after a week off. I managed to sneak in some meditation before my meetings started. Today was about finding the spot between too much focus in meditation and too little.

@Creaturista And I totally failed to add a caption to that image...

Previous toot contains a quote from George Lucas on a starry night sky: Always remember, your focus determines your reality.

I think I was able to get my meditation today done around 1:00. I'm in the beginning (day 6) of a 30-day program about learning to meditate. Today was about finding a "home base" or something to focus on.

The 10-minute session was immediately followed by a nap because I am dog sitting an ancient dog with special needs and I haven't slept in a week.

Those who have stayed inside, wore masks in public, and socially distanced during this entire pandemic are the same people who are used to doing the whole group project by themselves

Ravelry meta, ableism, knitting / crochet community, link to twitter 

A very good Twitter thread about how Ravelry is still a fucking accessibility nightmare... but now they're patting themselves on the back because they've changed very, very minute things. Their redesign is literally causing seizures and migraines, to be perfectly clear about the problems.

Coworker: *completes work but leaves tickets open for days*

Me: You need to close your tickets as soon as you have all the work done. If you don't, it counts all that extra time against you (and the team) and screws up the reporting.

Coworker: Got it.

Coworker: *closes ticket before completing all the work*

Me: You have to complete all the work before closing the ticket.

Coworker: You told me to close tickets as soon as possible.


I recommend hitting up @scoots for a fresh avatar! I think they still have some commission slots open:

RE: Last boost

That font bundle is sweet. Alchemist and Botanist are especially right up my alley.

Yes, Roya is an extremely sexy comic now being published in color, by a Black writer who started the Iron Circus imprint. It's a great book by some great folks. Only 4 days left to back it!
