The IFIXIT screwdriver set is really nice, although I have the basic "Pro Tech" set all the different wonky bits are quite nice for various devices I have lying around.

I wish there was a monocular that was like binoculars and did not do fancy "night vision" stuff and change the color, but also is something that has pretty good bulky zoom like bulky binoculars. Binoculars are so unusable with lazy eye and only have double misaligned vision.

Put some fresh filters and domes on my hearing aids, so now hearing is back to HD from SD.

If you are working over 40 hours on salary you are basically working for less pay!

Example 100k USD/y salary:

40h ~= 50.00 USD/h
45h ~= 44.44 USD/h
50h ~= 40.00 USD/h
55h ~= 36.36 USD/h
60h ~= 33.33 USD/h

If going from 50-60 hour weeks down to 40 hour weeks is what quiet quitting is... then what the hell have I been doing with 40 hour weeks?

If I ever have to go on camera, the back drop of my meeting will be a Kurzgesagt poster signifying all the ways you can die in a black hole.

I am always nervous with getting a new Primary Care Practitioner. I hope new PCP does not think I am a hypochondriac and refuse to treat me when I am allergic to so many things including rare stuff. I should get an allergy screening thing done.

I kind of feel like writing a basic IRC client that allows me to post across multiple social media spaces, now that there are probably going to be more popping up and fragmentation will occur.

Brain MRI Payment (-) 

I am dreading paying the 5800 USD I owe for an MRI... but at least my lesser volume than average brain is healthy! I wonder if having a large bubble in my brain will mean anything in the future.

Is there any device out there that can force a specific USB-C PD direction?

Work e-mail joke (neutral) 

Instead of saying "Thank you" or "Sincerely", I always end my e-mails with "The information contained in this message may be confidential and legally protected under applicable law.

I set my watch background color to red from amber and it looks kind of nice.

I remember telling myself I would get the humidifier and dehumidifier installed in like 6 hours, it has so far been 6 weekends.

I really need to finish installing the humidifier instead of procrastinating.

I am hoping I did not fracture my left index finger as it is still in pain from 12 hours ago and is swollen when I accidentally hit it into a door frame as I was walking.
