Lazy day today. No longer having the pile of mail hanging over me in my thoughts, I guess I just decided to go with the easy going flow and do a whole lot of nothing today. Weekend was off and on this and that, so I don’t feel too bad taking Monday off. The cats seem to appreciate that I’m not moving furniture around or effing about with a half dozen stacks of papers… they definitely don’t like any change or fuss.
I mentioned that I had gotten back into IRC, getting myself used to a little socializing now and then… and today was nice because my buddy Nick joined the channel and we were able to catch up a bit. He was one of my main compadres at the last job I worked at… my singing partner when we were on the line, giving our best “Bohemian Rhapsody” performance for the rest of the crew as we all worked.
Now I just need to start poking my head out on Facebook. Anyone there that seems combative or overly-negative in the stuff that they’re posting… I’m gonna just have to mute or un-friend those folks as needed. Social media shouldn’t feel crappy… and the last time I spent much time on Facebook, it sure felt like a shit show. Maybe I can work it a different way this time. Judging from when I’ve popped in to lurk recently, it looks like there’s a good sized group of friends who’ve been doing well and have happy stuff they’re posting about, so I’ll keep my fingers crossed whenever I decide to do that.
But yeah, just wanted to drop in here for a short update… even though nothing’s really going on. I feel like this day off might allow me a little more oomph tomorrow when I get back to working on the stuff I wanna work on around here. As always, just trying to steer my twitchy ass in a direction where things start feeling a little less shitty. Past few days have been decent, so that makes me cautiously optimistic.
Oh, plus I threw some random photos from 2020 up to my Flickr link above. 🙂👍🏻
EDIT: One more thing. A little more than a month into my new endeavor of investing, and as of market close today my portfolio is up 8.03% from where I started. 😦😃 The news of Tesla being added to the S&P definitely accounted for a good portion of that, but still… 8% return over a month’s time… crazy stuff. And while I know that it doesn’t mean shit when it comes to what next month will be like, or the month after that, but you can bet that I’m gonna be a little bit giddy when being giddy should be understandable. 😏🤷🏻♂️
