Even though I don't buy many tv dinners (when I do buy frozen boxed food it's usually for the oven), I love having a microwave. I didn't have one in my first apartment. At the time, I didn't consider it a big deal, even though I'd always had one before. This was the first time I put in real effort to learn how to cook because I was way too cheap to eat out.
I really enjoy having a microwave now, though, because its great for reheating leftovers.
I did a quick sketch today. I want to start #drawing more often. Art was huge part of my life when I was younger, even as an adult, but it just sort of petered out in the last few years. I wouldn't say I completely stopped drawing, but it's just very noticeable to me how little I draw now compared to how much I used to.
Workers in the US will hold a strike in Shakopee, Minnesota on July 15, 2019, during Amazon Prime Day:
I ditched my Amazon Prime subscription permanently a while back and I hardly ever buy anything on the Amazon website any more, so avoiding either of those on Prime Day won't be anything I don't already do. What's really hard, though, is avoiding any and all Amazon products. Amazon owns, like, a lot of companies. Have to wonder if it's not getting to the point where it's more effective to check and whitelist what you're using than to get the full blacklist of Amazon companies, lol.
Amazon-owned companies to avoid
Spoiler: Amazon owns a lot of stuff.
Personally, I'm going to avoid as much as possible during the strike (Prime Day). Let me know if I missed anything.
▪️ AWS (probably can't avoid this!)
▪️ Book Depository
▪️ Whole Foods
I won't guilt you if you need Amazon to survive, but fortunately, I don't, so I'm going to do what I can.
Just some thoughts I had on #climatechange
I have very mixed feelings about social media.
On the one hand, I feel like it allows for a form of communication that it's hard to find elsewhere, that I've found very meaningful. I like being able to connect with other people I would otherwise never meet.
But I feel social media is also very prone to misuse. I know I certainly have some bad habits regarding it, like overchecking for updates.
Caffeine has never been something I could use on a regular basis, which has caused me a lot of difficulties in life, especially given my messed-up sleep schedule. When I was younger I would frequently fall asleep involuntarily. There were times I even did so while I was walking. Dangerous! Fortunately, I'm in a better situation now and despite the fact that I still can't get to sleep at a normal and consistent time, I don't feel as tired as I used to. And I don't fall asleep while walking now!
The little gears in my head can sometimes translate my thoughts into words, which is good because communication is important to me. But sometimes they just churn and churn. And sure, sometimes I need to stop and think stuff through more anyway, but sometimes it's like I know what I want to say and I am ready to say it, but it gets stuck in my brain and I'm not sure how to get it out.
