The theme for The Mandalorian is just so so good.

One thing I do not like about winter: Daylight Savings Time. It is madness that it is 5pm and already completely dark outside.

One thing I like about winter: cooler weather. After a few months of 90-100°F weather 60°F days are nice and refreshing.
Bonus: There’s no snow in Southern California.

I remember when everyone diskiked how much email they received.

Now people are starting newsletters instead of blogs.

How much longer until people get tired of email again?

Prime Wardrobe Return Around

Frustrated with Amazon this morning.

Last week: get an email saying “we haven’t received your Prime Wardrobe returns”. Go and check tracking and low and behold it was delivered to Amazon. Start a chat with their customer service and was told it was updated as delivered and there would be no further issues.

This morning: Thank you for your Prime Wardrobe purchase.

First thought: they couldn’t even flag something in their own system correctly.

Second thought: open a chat with customer service and tell them I was incorrectly charged.

Outcome: Now I’m waiting on a refund because Amazon charged me for items that were returned to them in October. 🤦

I love it when systems don’t line up with reality. Bonus for when the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing.

I’m pretty sure I see more paid posts and ads on Instagram than actual posts.

Okay, maybe 75% sure.

And don’t get me started on the algorithmic timeline. Is it so hard to do a linear timeline now? Just the oldest to the newest posts in order. Can’t be that hard.

Note to self: when buying flowers online always put a message on the card so they don’t recieve a blank card with their flowers.

No. You’re listening to Foklore by Taylor Swift and liking every single song at 2 in the morning. 🎵

I’ve said Habits are hard before.

Perhaps it is time for a Page to start listing what habits I want to start and what habits I want to let go of in 2021? Maybe it is more of a bullet journal spread for my own use.

I think it is time to start looking forward to Goals in 2021.

I need to get back on track with logging my food and tracking my weight.

Starting new habits is hard.

Today’s wisdom

DO NOT SHY AWAY FROM THE UNCOMFORTABLE WHEN YOU ARE TRYING TO IMPROVE YOUR LIFE.

If it were easy to do it would already be done.

Two weeks ago the US had an election.

This week the 14 day average of new coronavirus cases is up 79%.

The states where cases are increasing look to me like the states that primarily voted in person and Republican.

This year could have been completely different with better leadership and more understanding, but we are too busy worrying about our current selves to consider what others may need in the future.

Today’s Wisdom

BEING ALONE ISN’T THE SAME AS BEING LONELY.

A timely reminder.

I’m thankful I have to return to work today. I took a few days off to celebrate my birthday this weekend.

Thankfully, I will have something to focus on so that I will not be able to check the news all day every day.

Today’s Wisdom

BEING LOUD IS NOT THE SAME THING AS BEING RIGHT.

The Week

One of the weirdest things about the internet today is that Brands send you emails and tweets wishing you a happy birthday.

Like, thank you jeans for wishing me a happy birthday, but shouldn’t you be focused on treating your workers better?

I make it a point to point out whenever anyone says “Clever, girl.” in a TV or movie.
