Day 14 warmth ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ–ค

1-on-1s.

Every time I see “1-on-1 Gaby” in my calendar, I get scared, I panic and think I am in trouble.

I have been at my current job/position for about six months now and I have had at least five 1-on-1s with my supervisor. And they have been nothing but super productive and very beneficial – never in trouble, so far. I guess I have 1-on-1s PTSD from my previous empolyers or managers. Usually, those meetings meant I was in some kind of trouble or something less productive and or beneficial.

The 1-on1s I have now, are the entire opposite. I love how this company or at least the team I am working alongside, do care about their employee’s success within the company. Not just on a specific role but within the company as a whole.

Today’s meeting was all about my goals and career. What I was hoping to accomplish in the near future to five years from now. My manager was really good at asking me the right questions to figure out which direction we should take to acomplish my goals and aspirations. This is something I never experience in other past jobs.

All the Toots! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’จ

I am tooting again!

This week I kind of felt the need to revamp my presence in the Mastodon’s Universe again. I had a previous account and I stopped using a long time ago, my Micro.blog was still sending stuff there but totally forgot about it. This week I created a new account, which it’s now associated with Micro.blog, obviously. This time around, I am trying to just not send stuff from Mb automatically but also try to use it and engage more in it. It is very different from both Mb and Twitter in some way but I understand it better this time around. Either way, let see how it goes. If you are into the Mastodons and would like to find me here. I need friends.

All my toots are now coming from Micro.blog

This has the weirdest thing I have said in my head all day, so far, the day is still young.

The Sacred Mushroom.

Today I was listening to the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, as you do. In between all the bull-poop they were talking about they mentioned the book, THE SACRED MUSHROOM AND THE CROSS: A study of the nature and origins of Christianity within the fertility cults of the ancient Near East by John M. Allegro. To which I thought, “this sounds nuts – I must read it!” (๐Ÿ˜…). I am a sucker for crazy theories and whatnot. So here I am checking in a Books.app to see if they have it with no luck. I also went to Audible, no luck either. I did find it on Amazon and I am pretty sure it was through the “Grey market” as they call it, maybe, I am not sure. Eventually, I found a link, a PDF version of the book! The entire book has been, basically pirated, with a Piracy Notice and all!

Piracy notice: In order to keep this information available to the public, this book has been pirated!

A message to those whoโ€™ve taken this book out of print. This book will forever circulate. You will never be able to remove it from the public light, as you, the Vatican and Anheuser Busch attempted to do.

In such a case as 2000 years of intellectual hijacking, this book will now remain forever free online.

Though Allegroโ€™s theories seemed extreme at the time, philology today knows he was right. See a publication by Piotr Michalowski in โ€œCambridge Encyclopedia of the World’s Ancient Languagesโ€, edited by Roger D. Woodard.

To the reader, enjoy a once banned book.

To the suppressors, Fuck you!

Whether the contents of the book are true or not, controversial or what have you, it’s irrelevant to me. This is purely me being curious about it and to have something to do in my downtime at the office.

Rise // A rising Luna ๐Ÿ˜Ž

I called Nintendo.

Today I received a Nintendo eShop Gift Card from my wife, which got me very excited obviously. There’s a new game coming out tomorrow โ€” Darksiders Genesis.

Anyway, every time I get a gift card like this I always assume they’ll be as easy to handle as the Apple ones. You know, you just peel them off and voilร ! Well, Nintendo ones, aren’t the case. My first attempt was to, just like Apple’s, to peel the thing and immediately I realized that wasn’t gonna work. I was actually damaging the thing. I tried to scratch the thing with a dime, as you do I guess and just made it worse.

I panicked, as I do and pretty much murdered the thing! I could only make out almost all of it except for characters 8, 9 and 10th.

So I remained calmed and panicked again (๐Ÿ˜…). And then I calmed down again and called Nintendo, which I have never done. I was scared that they’ll go and say “LOL, you’re SOL buddy” kind of thing.

Here a I called, a nice young lady (by her voice I could tell she was young and definitely a lady) picked up my call. And basically I went over what happened. “My lady got me a gift card and I massacred the thing. Can you please help me?” And she said “Sure! I’ll try to help you with this!”

So she asked me for some alphanumeric code in the back of the thing and there! And she says. “I have access only to the first eight characters”

๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

“Well, 8 I could somewhat make out but definitely need 9 and 10”

Turns out the only have access to those first 8 and the rest are restricted from them. She asks me for an email address, my Nintendo account username and the serial number of my Switch.

She advised that she’ll have to send a ticket to somewhere blah blah, blah. And that I should here something in a day or two.

15 to 20 minutes after that, I get an email.

Hello,

Thank you for contacting Nintendo! We received enough information to approve and process the following for you:

A credit of $35.00 to your eShop. You will see the funds available the next time you log into your Nintendo eShop account.

Yay Nintendo!

First Gen vs Pro.

I have posted several times now about my AirPods situation. I charge them 2 to 3 times a day. It has come to the point that I also carry my Power Beats Pro in my backpack just in case. They usually just stay in the car just so I don’t forget them when going to the gym. I guess I could just use my PBPs all day instead but they can get a little uncomfortable after a few hours on. I am not sure that’s the case for everybody but I can’t wear mine for more than a few hours without getting a little uncomfortable on my ears.

But yeah, the sound quality difference between these two it’s just incredible. If I am listening to music using my AirPods, the volume bar it’s at about 75-80%. As soon as I switch to the PBPs I have to lower the volume to about 25-30% otherwise I’ll be blasting my ears.

- 10 inchworms

5x

**I had to modified since I only had one bell of the same weight. So, 7 each side.

Most likely the only Puerto Rican dish, besides cereal, that I actually learned from my mom! ๐Ÿ˜…

Gotta love that 45mm!

Looks like Iโ€™ve got 6% left before I need a battery replacement on this sucker. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

The good thing is, I’ve lost the 3 pounds I gained on my last trip! Whoop, whoop!

If I were in the need of saving links/read-later type of thing. Whatโ€™s the best way nowadays? I was pretty much thinking either Instapaper or even Pinboard.

Catche me if you can, kind of thing!

Tragedy! As I am about to wrap up my day at the office, I’ve grabbed my “thought-to-be” empty coffee mug just to find out it was still ¼ full from this morning. I am both angry and very sad. That was some good-damn coffee ๐Ÿ˜ข.

I blame the gnomes.
