I have a feeling (like literally I can feel it) that tomorrow, walking is going to be a challenge. That I will be (already am) in so much pain! 😅 (gotta hate leg day).
This morning, since Luna and Marley woke up at the crack of dawn, we left the house early. I dropped off the underage early at granma’s and was making good time this morning. Little did I know! A few days ago I wrote about how stressful my commute can be sometimes. Well, there was an accident this morning, cops closed highway 20, from Star Rd to 11th st. Guess where Syngenta (work) is? Between Star and 11th 😫, luckily I knew about this road that goes behind Syngenta grounds and sneak into highway 20 but between work and Star rd. Probably shouldn’t have been allowed to do that but I needed to get to work. So, I snuck around and when arrived at the intersection there was a cop car (but no cop around which was kind of weird) and the accident was right there. It looks like a pickup truck was trying to cross and hit another car and that other car landed on the field. Crazy shit but I sneak by and made it to work.
Yesterday on my commute back from work, I was listening to a podcast, as you do, by Chente Ydrach. He’s a comedian, podcaster, actor and underwear model (😅). Anyhoo, that’s not the point. The point is that he was interviewing Javier Hiram, the lead singer of a rock band from Puerto Rico 🇵🇷, Vivanativa. Not only was a great interview but it brought back the band under my radar. Viva Nativa was one of the first few bands that came out of the island — Spanish Rock 🎸 . One of the first bands I listened back in the late 90’s early 00’s. Just to mention a few, at the time it was Fiel a La Vega, Sol d’ Menta, Manjar de los Dioses, among others. But for whatever reason I had forgot about Vivanativa. So I finished the episode this morning and I was like “I need to listen to these guys” and I ended up listening to their entire discography. Not only I remembered why I loved them so much but all the memories that resurfaced. It was probably the most productive and serene morning I have had so far. It was a truly delight to enjoy their music again, recall all those good memories and dance a little on my chair (😅).
Anyway, that was a lot of words to express a little bit of excitement. But I’ll let you know that my favourite album is their first album, self-titled Vivanativa released in 1997, love it!
I feel like doing another challenge! A photography challenge to be more specific. This is nothing new, I do these all the time (😅). In the past, I have done shooting with a specific lens for a period of time, no matter the circumstances in which I’m in, or shooting in black and white only kinda thing. This time around, I feel like doing a photo a day using only my Olympus 45mm f1.8 and black and white photos. Not sure for how long. Maybe a month from today, until my youngest’s birthday (November 15th)? Will see, as the maker of this challenge and its ruler, I can change the terms at any time (😂). Anyway, prepare yourselves for some random stuff!
Feel free to join if you want to play! 😉
Today I was reading a post by Mr. Jack Baty (aka @jack ), Computer Files Are Going Extinct - Simon Pitt. And my take away from all of it was collywobbles, yup like I have never heard that word before. I chortled a little when I read it and had to search what it was.
col·ly·wob·bles /ˈkälēˌwäb(ə)lz/ noun INFORMAL•HUMOROUS stomach pain or queasiness. “an attack of collywobbles” intense anxiety or nervousness, especially with stomach queasiness. “such organizations give him the collywobbles”

I’m sure this is the one I’ve seen before, this why the Netflix one caught my eye!
Well, as much as I’m all up for minimizing and simplifying my systems. You know, trying to keep things in one place so I know where to find them. I also need to accept that I love trying new shiny things, all the shiny things. For example, text editors and note-taking apps. Which make finding things a little bit of a quest sometimes. One thing thought is that I’m a creature of habit. And I know for sure that I always bounce between the same apps with one constant app — Drafts. The other ones are, Ulysses, iA Writer and believe it or not Byword. For note-taking it’s usually between Notes.app and Bear (before Bear it was Vesper, I’m still mourning that app). Though, I don’t use Bear anymore but I know I can find stuff there so it’s installed and in a folder somewhere. So anytime I need to find something, it’ll be in either of these places.
That being said, I kinda want to start with the philosophy that is something has been published, I should not hold on to it for any reason. This has made use Drafts as my almost full-time text editor. I type my thoughts (like this one), publish to my Micro.blog site using a Drafts action and the last step of that action is to delete the draft. Simple. Right? Right. Plus, I almost never go back trying to find a past post, maybe an old note but never a blog post. So keeping them around it’s pointless.
