Finally installed F-Droid for the first time. Another instance of "I wish I'd done this sooner!" Now trying out Tusky. Any other good apps I should try out?

Anybody else 'sudo su' and end up singing Sussudio?

NPC: Hey, I know you're in the middle of saving the world and all, but would you kindly plant some carrots and feed the cat for me? K thanks byeeeeee.

Finished a bunch of Lestallum quests. Give me that sweet, sweet exp.


A lot of this game is making Ignis drive to the next quest point while I goof off on my phone and judge the characters for not wearing their seatbelts.

Made myself sit in front of the computer for two hours, begging myself to start on any one of my many unfinished projects, and I just can't. There's only so much free time and I can't even use that properly. Can't even tell if this is burnout, depression, or simply laziness.

Now I'm going to rage-play FFXV and eat chocolate cake for breakfast because if I'm not going to be productive I may as well be hedonistic.

What is up with the Cup Noodles product placement in Final Fantasy XV!? ๐Ÿคฃ That may be the cheesiest thing I've ever witnessed in a video game.

Played the demo of Octopath Traveler while curled up in bed. That game is GORGEOUS. It's pixel art but 3D and there's depth of field...? How did they even DO that?

There is immense joy in just watching - watching all the little creatures in nature.

Illness sucks. One day you're on top of the world, then you wake up the next morning like, "Why is my body on fire!?"

Sudafed, take me away...

I should get to bed because I have so much back-end PHP stuff on my plate right now but I'm just too excited to sleep.

Now I can't move to Amsterdam because I just bought tickets to the D23 Expo 2019 which happens exactly a year from today. I'M GOING TO DISNEYLAND!

Just had a wonderful dinner with Dutch friends visiting the area. I have, for a long time, fantasized of one day getting a software development job in the Netherlands. Years ago I had a phone interview with Booking and fell in love with the idea of moving to Amsterdam. Never been there, but it seems like such a lovely place.

Although I did learn tonight that Mexican food is not a thing there at all, and I do love my enchiladas...

This has made me smile so much today. Usually I use Momentum as my new tab screen, but seeing Team Cockroach in my new tabs has been great. Also, the profanity filter makes me laugh, especially "shirt".
