Do not

I sure can tell it’s Sunday today.

“Yes, plenty of free time today. Let’s do leisure activities x and y in between working on serious activity z.” I proceeded to do exactly none of those things. Instead, I opted to wander aimlessly around my house, surf aimlessly around the web, and just be kind of a bum in general. And it wasn’t even all hard work I wanted to do!

Then make it so

“Doctor, I see ads when watching Youtube videos on Youtube.” “Well then don’t watch them on Youtube.”

I’ve been fiddling with uBlock ever since putting it into medium mode and switching over to Firefox. It’s working well for me, but Youtube ads it still can’t seem to deal with.

Disarray

I just realized I missed the chance to title yesterday’s post “back to the fast”.

That’s not important though, because I have something much worse to confess. It brings me great pain to write these words, but I guess this is also the first step towards my salvation. To put it simply, I am not a very tidy person. Left to my own devices, I don’t regularly clean things up. Clutter accumulates, and “eh no big deal” turns into “too big, won’t deal”. This happens in both digital and physical worlds. The latter is a slightly larger problem.
