Jan. 12, 22: Routine, Lil’ More Prep, PIMP Meeting, Napping, Oculus, TV, and Games


I don’t seem to recall being woken up, but for some reason I was still up pretty early; about four thirty or so. That put me another hour and a half short on sleep and although I did get a little bit more done, I crashed out again in the afternoon. 😢. That’s a serious chicken or the egg situation…she says I get up early because I fall asleep early; I say I fall asleep early because I’m woken up early. 😛 She hasn’t really been snoring the last couple nights, though, so that’s awesome.

Got on with the usual morning routine and was pleased to find cryptos looking good, recovering some from the bloodbath of the last week or so. My DeFi position was looking very strong again, but ETH rose as well, so I lost some of my gains in that regard. Although I am itching to increase my risk back to where I was before I had to back it off, I want to wait for a trend to set it first, could easily turn around and get me all bothered again. So, for now, just left things alone and hoping for continuation.

As I said yesterday, the main task standing in my way as far as planning for next semester is, well, doing the planning (setting the calendar dates), so I sat down and did that. I tried my best to break the semester more or less evenly, but the second exam is a little bulkier and I’m nervous about combining one exam into the others for Algebra (I like having the three exams and Final, it’s a reasonable pace/pressure…the more assessments there are, the higher the course stress is for students).

I’m still slightly unsettled about it for some reason, which made me stop…still need to go in and edit the calendars, the syllabi, and the WebAssign due dates and post everything to Discord and make a Blackboard announcement…however, typical me would have procrastinated on it until at least Sunday since classes don’t start until Wednesday, so at least I’m being somewhat proactive in that sense.

Got a little work done and posted and shared my post for the day and then headed over to Discord for the weekly #PIMP meeting. Seems like it’s still growing and going strong. 💪 Saw a couple pumps in the price this week as well, which was cool, but I kept having to move my buy orders up after they kept getting buried.

After the meeting I got my lunch and I really petered out, but I was resisting laying down and I actually had the desire to play Resident Evil 4, so I jacked into the Oculus for a while. I actually finished the game, so I was a little sad about that, but at least I don’t have to feel guilty about leaving it unfinished.

Once I’d completed the game, I gave up the fight against laying down and I put on Crazyhead without much intention of actually watching it. Crashed out for about an hour or so and felt pretty nasty when I got up. I got myself going again, but couldn’t really fathom focusing on work, so I went into the Oculus store to see if there was anything interesting.

I found a random AppLab game and tried it out. Was a first person shooter deal, but I wasn’t all that impressed with it. No loss, though, since it was free.

There is a game I saw Beardo Benjo play, like a relaxing, simple, world builder/puzzler that’s coming out tomorrow, so that’s on my wishlist, but I’ve also been thinking about getting a boxing game (really since I got the Oculus, but the reviews all complained that they were super short) and I was going to get Creed but figured I was paying for Rocky to be in it rather than for quality gameplay and went for Thrill of the Fight instead.

It’s alright, I did get a bit of a sweat going, but the opponents (at least the early ones) are very defensive and I had to keep backing them into the corner to beat on them…unfortunately, I beat on the lamp sitting in that corner:


The reality is virtual, but the scars are real! 🤣 I figured that was a good sign to quit and Wenche was due to be home soon, so I started making rice 🍚 since it takes so long to do would be about ready when she got home and then we’d only need to cook the chicken 🐓 for dinner.

We’ve basically watched everything, so I hunted around for something. We tried out two different BBC shows on Prime, but neither of them were very good and we switched to the Witcher. I feel like I should enjoy it, but I still find it hard to get into. Didn’t take me too long to fall asleep again watching the tube, but definitely much later than I usually pass out, past eight-thirty, anyway. 😂

[Would really like to get on with taking care of errands and getting the Solairitas Update done before #PYPT today, but it’s sit and wait until 10:14 today or else get skipped by brofund and brofi. 🤬]

Weren’t we only just in the sixty to seventy range? Whoosh, the dShitty shittiness is back; no need for robberies or crises, the fundamental game design will do! 😛



Having purchased that Rare card, it seems that I have a bit of a buffer on my Ego on Rising Star. Been focused on doing missions trying to get to the next mission.


I played more Splinterlands in the evening than I wanted to…got seriously frustrated with it and rage quit for the night again. I picked it back up in the morning and finished my quest out, but I’ve made zero progress, lost some rank in fact, and am feeling the clock ticking on this season.





I had Sneak for my daily quest and just gave up hope of getting to Diamond before completing it:


Just staked up my drop from today. I sold about half of the SPS I had on the market from my BRO holdings and transferred the rest in game and staked it as well. I know that’s not necessarily the best place to park them (at around 38%), could be doing better in a pool, but I’m hoping they’ll continue to find ways to sustain the price (like the voucher drop from which I’ve made quite a bit of cheddar). Speaking of which, I still have a few vouchers left there on H-E that I haven’t sold…thinking I may have dragged my feet too long.

I have some DShitty stuff but I haven't touched it in months, no interest, or seemingly, no point.

Splinterlands is becoming a major aggravation. The rewards are so minuscule anymore and the competition so fierce that like you said, it's just an exercise in rage at this point. I made my highest level possible for this season so I rented out all my cards for the last 2 days. Way more DEC gained in renting than playing. But the DEC isn't worth anything either anymore. Sigh.

I have to say I LOVE making lists and planning and scheduling it always gives me hope haha Gosh those real scars from virtual life are telling for when we're all chucked into META I suppose haha.


Broke into diamond with my Chaos Legion only deck. Don't have the CP to get to Champion though, I'm hoping that changes with the drops as I just got enough of the new ones to max those out.
