Aug. 7, 22: Routine, Grocery Shopping, Jogging, Raven Battles, A Movie, and Games
Oooooo! I finally got a solid night’s sleep tonight! 🥳 Fell asleep around eight watching the Dumbledore movie, but made it almost all the way until six. Not only that, the quality of my sleep was better…so although it isn’t every night, I do have to admit that it’s getting much better now that I’ve been exercising, well, every day.
The morning routine was entirely routine. Can’t really think of anything noteworthy…cryptos are still boring, did my usual chatting on Discord, curation, monitor the SOL market, shifted and staked tokens; all the same ol’, then worked on my post.
I suppose I did make a little more progress on my studying to prepare for next semester, and I also sent out the emails I’d been meaning to to see if I can get a syllabus and calendar to get started with my planning properly…in addition to clearing that out of my inbox, I got everything done and cleaned out except for one thing left…damn Uphold wants my ID again. 🤬
I got a decently early start and despite being a pretty long post, I got finished with about half an hour to spare before my usual posting time. Basically daudled around waiting for the washer and dryer loads to finish and then headed into town to get the weekly grocery shopping done.
We did get some extra stuff like dog treats and toilet paper, but not all that much meat, and we still broke a hundred and fifty even with coupons. ☹️ They did actually have relatively full shelves, though, not empty on juice or potatoes or milk this time.
After we got back and got everything put away and had some lunch I debated heading out for a walk with the dogs. Wenche had said it was too hot for her and she didn’t want to go, but I had kind of half convinced her; however, when it came time to head out, I stepped outside the door and figured the dogs would not really enjoy it…they’d be happy for a block or two, but then be overheated, so I said it wasn’t a good idea to take them and she took the opportunity to opt out as well.
To be honest, I was a little disappointed with myself that I didn’t go the full five kilometers, but I’m going to go it a “proper” walk + wisdom…it’s one thing to get off your sorry butt and get moving, it’s another to push yourself with hard physical exertion in the blazing Sun.
I loves it, really, feeling the warmth of energy that has been blasted at you from a star so far away it took eight minutes to get to you at the fastest possible speed in the universe…free energy coming in! Myself, on the other hand, well it’s not a teenager anymore is it? Have to be at least a little bit sensitive to that fact.
I did push it a little bit and did the first three at 7:45 pace, but I slowed it down on the last kilometer and blew the average. Still, certainly more exertion than just a casual walk.
Got back and cooled down for a bit trying to quit sweating and realized that Raven had an event going on in her Discord, so I jumped in there for a while. 🤩 I came super close to winning one of the battles, came down to me and Cryptonius, but he got it. 🥲
Got a quick shower and then we watched the new Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Thankfully, it lived up to the high bar set by the first! I think I might have missed one in between, but not sure…either way, there were very few slow moments, awesome CGI, all kinds of different and creative magic attacks and monsters…not only did it keep me awake, I enjoyed it. Sure, there was still the “girl power” element definitely there, but at least not as preachy as most movies make it. I mean, the scene where they’re falling through different universes…damn that was cool…and the fractal warping of reality and stuff, tickles my brain.
Went down and returned the movies and Wenche made us steaks and fries and salad for dinner. She started watching some kind of like political/military show that doesn’t interest me and I hijacked the TV. We finished People of Earth already 😭 and so I put on What We Do in the Shadows for a while until I fell asleep.
Well, I suppose the only way for dShitty to get shittier is to not make good on the other tokens I’m supposed to be mining in addition to SIM…so, that’s what they did today. 🤬 Otherwise, can’t get any worse than it is and has been, at least the students provide a small out.
Just did the one mission on Rising Star today and my Ego is still zero, so I’m keeping on keeping on.
Dead smack in the middle of the waiting game on HashKings. I know, because I’m reminded that they haven’t done any work to improve the mobile site whatsoever by the reversion of the plants to their first day’s growth state.
Didn’t really feel much like playing Splinterlands today. I went in and reset my focus, but that was it.
Claimed my SPS interest for the day and staked it up to bring me above 60k, thinking I may start siphoning off some of the interest going forward. Didn’t make any moves with vouchers, but I have what I moved out poised and ready.
