Evening Pages: January 4th, 2021

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, I've been locking myself down until I think it's safe to go out again. To alleviate fear and stress, my writer's group has put together a daily "morning pages" get-together on Zoom in order to touch base before starting the day. Here's some of my brief thoughts.

I remember reading once that happiness is butterflies. Apparently a 3 year old or something said that. Wiser than me.

Heehee. Doggee.

Also not sure whether Reddit is now only providing 240p video for export or something, but video quality seems to have declined. Man if they keep this up I might have to go somewhere else to find my cute animal pictures and videos.

I don't think anything was as grueling as doing all that manual data entry over this past long weekend. It was long in hours spent and long in hours perceived. Somehow I managed to get it done, but then fell into a bit of a stupor on Sunday. So I still have 3 reports I need to do for my year in review, and then I can start looking at apps I want to build or keep building.

I've been purchasing a goodly number of books recently. I'm not sure how the stack grew so big so quickly, or why my credit card balance has blown out of the water, but it has and it's kinda nuts. I'll need to read more this year in order to publish the review and get them into boxes. I got a number of good titles though! A lot of philosophy and religion books, and some technical books too. Gonna try and change it up a bit.

Not sure if I've mentioned this anywhere but I'm reading the Bible from cover to cover and hope to finish in around 2 years or so. Gonna go slow and see how far I make it this time. Nice thing is, this time around I'm recording my notes in a Google doc so that way I know I don't miss anything. We'll see what happens, worst case scenario I drop the habit and then pick it back up a few months or years later.
