Coffee and computers. They just go great together. Not literally, of course.
I started muting advertisements, and it’s just so peaceful. I don’t even look at the screen if it’s a video advert. I have plenty of thoughts in my head, I don’t need your ideas mucking it up Pepsi.
I finished fixing a bike. It wasn’t worth it. The front tire doesn’t hold any air and the back has treads way too wide for the frame, even if I remove most air. That was bad for my motivation, not going to lie. I was looking forward to a bike ride before summer ended.
Can’t dwell on that. I did go fishing with a friend of mine. Nothing was biting on the weekend we went out, but it was a good drive all the same. Normally when I’m out with people, I talk just to fill the silence. But fishing, I don’t feel that way. It’s nice. I think I’ll practice that more often. Invasive thoughts in my head: “Why are they so quiet? Are they judging me? I’ll distract them with some inane BS to prove that I’m NOT annoying.” Regular people don’t really care about how much or how little I talk. I constantly forget that. Maybe you do too.
It’s hard being honest with yourself if you aren’t used to it. I think I’m making progress on self reflection.
