Things That Are Making You Happy

My wife and I recently moved to an amazing new apartment. The best feature? A family of pigeons moved onto our balcony at around the same time. They’re occasionally nervous, but overall all chill with us, even hanging out in the nest while we water the plants around them and we’ve gotten to see their chicks from egg to weird small dinosaur things.

I have been writing a lot of music recently, which is odd for me. Usually I just add flairs and keep rhythm for other people’s songs. I have been in the background in every band I have ever been in.

I have sent some clips to my friends who have added their respective instruments. We have plans to all get together and make playing music a semi-regular thing again. I could not be happier about it!

Staying at home has really sparked something creative in me that I don’t want to let go of again.

I caught covid at work and have had to spend the past week in isolation. Just this morning I received a lovely care package from my parents!

Small little tomatoes that grew out in the balcony of my apartment!
They are ready to harvest for tomorrow’s salad. Such a treat!

The long days of the Scottish summer seem to do wonders for my sleep pattern and by extension my mental health.

Also, Pistol Whip is now out on PS4/PSVR. This makes me very happy.

sleep schedule’s been a mess but the fox vids help. along with the formula 1 season as a baby f1 fan.

Agreed on the F1 season being a positive! It’s my first time following a season all the way through, and while it’s certainly a unique schedule it’s been unbelievably nice to just have something to look forward to watching on every Sunday & discuss with people that night.

I had some Not Happy things happen recently, but the rainy season has officially ended in Japan so I’ve started biking again!

I just rediscovered my band from high school’s bandcamp. Currently cracking up at how “punk” we were. We sure did love Choking Victim and god does it show.

For work I have to regularly go to use a service/website that involves the word “docket.” Given that it is a regular part of my job, I would have thought my browser would autocomplete at this point when I type “dock” but it does not. As such, I often find myself looking at the Google search results for “dock” and, honestly, taking a minute or two every time this happens to look at a few photographs of docks is turning into quite the soothing exercise.

Code that I’ve been dreading writing for months I apparently already wrote at the end of May. I don’t remember writing it, but it looks like code I would write. I’m both relieved and utterly baffled.

I got a hammock a couple of months ago and hung it up between the posts on my front porch. It’s mostly shaded much of the day, and it makes me relaxed and content to hunker down in it, read, journal, and watch the bird feeder. Hammock: highly recommended.
