This past weekend was pretty good but went by way too quickly. J and I hung out and talked a lot about all kinds of stuff and the time flew.
My trusty phone is finally giving up the ghost. I don’t mind that the battery doesn’t last very long anymore, and the random app crashes were more annoying than anything, but it has now picked up the habit of locking up and rebooting. The poor thing doesn’t owe me anything – it gets a LOT of heavy use. J’s phone doesn’t last as long as it used to either, so we did some figuring and looking and we both now have new phones on the way.
I’ve been spending a lot of time designing and printing parts, most recently with flexible filament that’s light and rubbery. It’s worked out a lot better than I expected and opens a whole new range of things I can do with the printer.
The volunteering thing has been a little problematic. I really want to do it but for some reason, scheduling has been a problem and pretty frustrating. At the last minute last Friday didn’t work out but we’re going to try again this Friday. If that doesn’t work again I may step back for a while and wait until things are sorted out there.
I’ve been feeling a little down for the last few days. I’m not sure what’s causing it – could just be another up/down thing – but it’s not fun and it makes me want to stay in bed. I’m not, but it sure is tempting. I’ll have to make sure I stay busy so I don’t find myself sitting around and dwelling on whatever it is.
The 2004 reboot of Battlestar Galactica is one of my favourite shows. The story, the characters, the ships… all great. I’ve been watching The Expanse, and it reminds me very much of BSG. It’s not the same show by any means, but the way they’ve developed the core characters and how everyone has a story or two (or fifty) feels very similar. Unfortunately, The Expanse did the same thing that most of the shows or books I enjoy do – killed off my favourite character. I won’t say who it was but I apologize to the person who plays the character for liking their character, thereby sounding the death knell for said character and ending the paycheques to said person.
There were a bunch of other things I wanted to write down but they’ve slipped my mind. Probably weren’t too exciting anyway, but I should really jot this stuff down.
I have a Dr C appointment tomorrow. It’s been quite a while since the last appointment and quite a bit has happened during that time. I hope to drive tomorrow but I’m not going to push it if I’m feeling off again – I don’t want to end up panicking in a parking lot again like last time. Wish me luck.
