I mostly keep to myself but say hi!
@Mainebot have you read this? I thought of you when reading it
“It's a song about loneliness, but the moment you hear it, you instantly feel less alone.”

This explains so much. I’ve always gotten almost immediately sleepy in closed door meetings.
“People often get sleepy in lecture halls and conference rooms because of carbon dioxide levels, which also may make you dumber.”
Just about finished reading this one and those two remain the best stories. A couple of the others are decent as well but most are just falling flat for me.
It feels like something is missing from them, to give them a point in a way. I wonder if this could be a result of the translation not quite lining up with the original? That or they needed to be longer to flesh them out more.
Either way, after Fever Dream, this was largely a dud.
I’m also strongly contemplating getting the larger Hobonichi for next year so it can be properly filled with these things, but that’ll largely depend on how I find doing so in the Weeks I currently have. Might have to do both so I can have one that’s more day to day planning and the other end of day logging kind of deal?
I recently read this article: https://themillions.com/2017/05/a-gift-to-the-future-in-defense-of-keeping-a-journal.html and it’s helped me figure out what I want to do with my journal/planner.
I’d been using it primarily to log events and upcoming things, but that meant that it would often be mostly empty for weeks aside from a book I read. I like the idea of documenting things for myself and having the ability to go back and look at it, without the performance that comes with social media posts.
Board games. Books. Puzzles. Beer. Cider. Cats. | Vegan means I'm trying to suck less.
