I guess that explains why I feel so loopy.

I also guess I'm on some sort of cosmic quest for answers to some very strange questions. It's not like any particular kind of loopy, more stuck in a wormhole or whatever.

I mean frankly I think there's so much uncertainty going around that things really do seem to have reset in some capacity. It's not that I know what I'm talking about in this sense, more that there isn't much logical alternative.

I feel like I am in a huge space before Reset. Mainly I've avoided Uncertainty by not shopping, but I am exposed to the Uncertainty of school and family trips (and workplace). If I were a heart which has it's normal "sinus" rhythm, right now I'm in Afib (fluttering) ---- stuttered steps forward.

I suppose that also makes sense considering I'm still just as stuck behind some screens as I always was. Turns out I put off some work until tonight but at least I know what it is.

It's good that I'm not in a rush anymore but that also means hurry up & wait...

All I can do today is drink coffee & work. It's not even within my expertise, I'm simply put acceptable at this & that's all.

Drowning sorrows in the most caffeinated coffee possible is a slippery slope.

I guess the right sandwich is a decent cure-all for that, if there's really such a thing. It's like I know my way through life without other people almost entirely, but that doesn't make my M.O. sustainable for anyone at all.

Time to give my poor underpowered computers a rest, that's all I know.

That fan on my laptop sounds like a jet engine sometimes, but so far it's still spinning.

it would be worth your while to vacuum out [using plastic vacuum cleaner wand and NOT metal] the inlet and outlet for venting on the unit, dust can accumulate in there and cause heat build-up.

I guess in my dusty nook full of laptops I've become less trusting of people in general lately. I mean it's hard to feel good about people in my life when they usually just aren't around. My social life disappeared long before the quarantine & I'm just not sure if things will ever really look up for me. All I'm looking forward to is getting enough work done to keep my job, which I'm really not too sure about.

I guess I could always be better about knowing when I'm just in 'shutdown' mode, kinda like my entire weekend. 8O

I'm afraid I'll just be stuck inside another week. People expect a lot of me, so I've been keeping to myself too much.

At work and/or in parts of your personal life?
