I don't sit down in the beat laboratory because inspiration approached me like a familiar and sat down on my shoulder.
I sit down in the beat laboratory to concoct an alchemical mixture of sounds that becomes music.
You can't just _wait_ for inspiration to strike you.
You _have_ to sit down and find inspiration.
Haven't done any meaningful music or coding this week.
But I did get some good little home DIY improvements done. Fixed the gappiness of the windows, sealed up the big holes under the sink where the plumbing comes through, the whole place is less drafty and feels more secure against insects, so.
Just gotta get this grant application buttoned up and sent out and then we can head home and chill with my family for a few weeks.
I told my mom how much eggs cost here and she audibly gasped.
I walk 25 minutes each way to the furthest grocery store in our neighborhood for big provisions because I can get 18 eggs for ~$5 vs the local shops which sell a dozen for ~$7.
Still don't understand how local eggs are somehow more expensive than eggs that have been shipped from California but there you go.
related: I've learned something very important in our three months of living in a high-rise: Your neighbors bug problems are your bug problems.
I just went to town with a can of expanding foam sealant and some weather stripping, and blocked off the one duct that connects us to other apartments, so hopefully between that and the fact that we spend a significant percentage of our lives cleaning, we won't be finding any explorers anymore.
There's something about the feeling of changing gears in my Subaru that I deeply, deeply miss. I still own it, it's wrapped up under a tarp in my parents' barn, but we just don't need it badly enough to justify the expense of shipping it out here.
I've gotta find another job so I can get it out here. Or get a first gen miata or something.
This is the single best piece of animation ever made and I don't care if I've already linked it at some point, I'm not sorry: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xukD1FNOZkM
