The Blogging Really Begins
The Needless Opener
For starters.. let’s all hope I can remember my tab spacing choice (5 spaces this time). Since when I write on my browser I don’t know how to accomplish it with the press of a key yet and always forget to google it. Has to be worth throwing myself off a writing mood to look it up and I always forget by the end.
Today started with catching up on sleep accidentally, I am testing out THC pills akin more to taking an Advil or Motrin rather than smoking and hurting my lungs. But also not taking them today as I still don’t know how they effect me for daily activities yet and I need to go out and do things. I felt overly anxious due to the things I need to deal with this week so I took some time for a 10 minute guided meditation session to help set the tone of the day, helps keep me and my child calm through the busyness. Outside of that it’s mostly been having to fix my PC because I decided a 500 GIG SSD isn’t large enough for my Ubuntu install to be a daily driver and windows would be relegated to the smaller drive and Ubuntu would get the 1TB SSD. Alas if I wasn’t poor I would just have two 1TB SSDs instead. Well in my attempt to just clone it over I learned that although it used to work with how bios boot records were handled, it doesn’t work with UEFI. Now I could learn how to sort this out as I am running off of the 1TB drive anyways but it would take me more time than just backing up my games and reinstalling Ubuntu and Windows fresh. Which is crazy to think of.. But most of the wait used to be updating if I am honest. But I’ve spent a couple of hours backing up Games and am almost ready to do a fresh install which is easy when Chome and VScode with git keep all of my important settings backed up.
Now The Actual Point
The important tasks today are both my ultrasound for my leg so maybe I can see where that is at and a plan for recovery can be made, or I am going to find out I need a different scan that will take longer. For now the cane allows me limited mobility, but enough to do some grocery shopping and such. Outside of that the last 3 months has almost entirely been sitting in my apartment. Thankfully I have a nice office chair with lots of adjustments so I can stay comfortable and adjust it when I hurt to get more time out of bed. Maybe most people might be concerned about it, I’m just happy to be headed towards knowing if I should be looking at life going back to normal or if I am looking at a big change. Both are a lot of work currently so I’d like to know where I’m at before progressing greatly, unfortunately seeing a doctor after the pandemic is proving to take far longer than it used to.
Secondly I have to vote. Okay, I don’t have to today I could do it later this week but I have other things to do and would rather just get it out of the way the first day I can do it. The local early polling location just opened today, some of the others opened earlier but I wanted to wait for the closer one. It’s more of an annoyance since I am just voting between choice which all are about the same, for the ones with a chance anyways, and all three have made it very clear they work for themselves and not us. I’m just hoping it’s dead since I have to wait until later in the evening to go.
The Long Goals
This week I need to day with several things. Most importantly being writing a long letter to several people in leadership and media positions locally, provincially, and federally given I have hit an impasse with their system not making sense for what it enforces.. it has hit that point. While also juggling the several massive financially issues this whole multi year long situation has caused. It isn’t right they ask the victim to compromise after they have already to a degree well beyond what the general compensation rules even cover….. It’s going to take a day or two and a lot of focus. I have spent the last several days planning on it’s structure and topics in my mind hoping I do a half decent job at writing it so others can understand it clearly. I planned to write about how it all goes here. People tend to like hearing about this sort of drama when I talk about it so I thought I would share not only to make noise towards it for myself but also so others who might be in this situation might find a way to approach their own plight without going down the usual dark road many people would dealing with this.
Maybe as I put together more of the evidence I plan to use for a letter I will most likely take the entire week and weekend to put together with the evidence, I can write about it here. I need the evidence elsewhere so this this is a two bird with one stone situation although I would much rather focus on one thing rather than two.
The sooner I get all of this sorted the sooner I can get back to coding and working on bettering things in general.
