Dec. 29, 21: Routine, Broken Streak, Computer Stuff, Oculus, More Laundry, TV, and Games
Well, one thing I can say for certain is that I am not too happy about missing my steps for the day (by three hundred) and breaking the streak for no good reason other than I fell asleep. I suppose it’s fair…didn’t get the moving in during the day, so didn’t earn it. 😢
Not too shabby on the sleep again tonight. 👍 Got up around five thirty with a solid eight hours. 😄 Unfortunately, that kinda’ means that I can’t use tiredness as an excuse for not being productive anymore. 🤣 On that note, I did get a bit done, just not what I should have gotten done (or had planned at least).
The morning routine was pretty usual. Did all the normal stuff and was disappointed to see cryptos still on a downward trajectory. HIVE has broken back below the $1.6 mark and doesn’t look like it’s found a bottom. 😱 BTC is back well below $50k and it’s looking fairly ugly for the moment. My DeFi investments also pulled back, but MATIC May have found a bounce…I left my position as it is, though, not currently in any danger having backed off a little yesterday.
Did my post and all that usual stuff, but once I was done with that, I broke the pattern and did not get out the Oculus! In fact, I fired up the computer. Starting it up I remembered one of the reasons I have a block…thing runs so insanely slow! It seems like they do it on purpose…it’s always after some Microsoft update that the thing’s performance begins to degrade.
I think there may be other update crap or scans going on in the background, but I don’t really know. I purposely only used the computer for business stuff (not downloading tons of rando programs) in order to try and avoid exactly this. 😡 Made me consider getting a new one, but I don’t want the hassle and expense knowing that the exact same thing is likely to happen again.
After a good twenty minutes or so it did finally get to a speed that was functional and I did not work on the website at all. 😛 I did make some progress, though, in that I got Keychain installed and set up as well as Metamask…had to do all the trying to remember what my password was and that, but eventually I got them both working and was able to transfer MATIC to and from Hive and only paid the MATIC trx fees! That’s great if my investment over there is ever in the money! Don’t have to worry about bridging or multiple steps or exchange fees…I’m very pleased with that!! 😁
I felt like I’d accomplished something when I succeeded in going both ways and more or less rested on my laurels for the remainder of the day. I left the computer open and ready, though, so there’s no excuse there now either.
I took a shower and treated my feet and was disappointed, upset, annoyed, depressed, frustrated, and not happy to find that I’ve now got a burning, painful rash in my groin area. 🤬😡 Seems I’m infested with various fungi and as soon as I get rid of one (more or less) I’ve got another. I tried to wrack my brain to figure out where it came from and my best guess was that it could possibly be my bath robe, so I laundered it along with a couple other towels that were due for a wash. Can’t say that having yet another issue made me feel all that great about my life…I suppose, in time, I’ll pass it back from my cock to my feet again somehow. 😭
After lunch I did play some Song in the Smoke on Oculus and made solid progress in the next area. I found all the quest stones and made explosive arrows to fight the level boss (dried puffballs 😂). Hit him in the face with four of them and it didn’t seem to phase it. 😱 I had done quite a bit of damage to it and then tried to bash it with my club and that didn’t turn out well for me. Quit out and put on some tube.
I watched the new Jimmy Carr comedy special, was ok, and then made some scrambled eggs and toast for dinner. I had over 3500 steps left to go once I started getting ready for bed and I moved around to finish out, but got close and made the mistake of laying back down again…before I knew it the cat was howling to wake me up.
Sixty-five is absolutely sixty-five and no additional shittiness in my dShitty today! 🥳 The shit-pipe switcher-oner is asleep at his job!
Hard to believe that I had actually let CryptoFuckmaster go and quit including this portion of my post. That was before I realized I had absolutely no way to extract any of the value I had accrued at all. 🤬 They have a fundamentally bad philosophy and should be shunned.
With missions taking two hundred and fifty minutes a piece, plus waiting for my energy to recharge means one or two a day, really, is all that’s actually possible. Even going as fast as I can this will take ages…for very little payoff I might add. I’m still trying to have faith, though, and have been keeping at it.
At this point I’m very much regretting not having played this season. I did play again today, but didn’t bother with my quest, just tried to make some progress in the rankings. I did make it into Gold II, which helps, but I don’t really want to play on the last day and I’m still going to get reset deep into Silver. 😡😢
I did keep the win streak going today, so no complaints with that! Left it as soon as I got into the next tier, but closed it out before I realized I hadn’t taken my photo proof. Meh.
Staked my SPS for today, put in my battles for the current guild brawl, but still hanging onto those vouchers I have sitting there…they were down even harder, so just waiting.
