In today’s lessons of phonetics

I learned something new in a daily affirmation room on Clubhouse yesterday (I swear I was the only Asian): people say “grand rising” instead of “good morning”.

“Grand rising, kings and queens!”

Somehow it’s 150% cooler when a black person says it.

When I say it, it just sounds like I’m talking about a Chinese restaurant.

The worst kind of clock

To the perpetually lonely bird making weird cooing noises for the past 3 hours: NOBODY LOVES YOU. GO AWAY.

It’s a curse of some sort

Why are all the people who own online (expensive) jewelry stores exceptionally difficult to work with?

It’s just this one specific niche.

Leftovers are oddly comforting

Could this be a manifestation of college PTSD?

Finding joy

The pandemic is still going strong.

I’m a little annoyed that the infection numbers are still climbing despite EVERY MEDIA OUTLET telling you to stay home if you don’t need to go out or to practice social distancing if you do. Look, I get it. Staying in sucks.

But if you’re going out simply because “staying home sucks” and because being bored interferes with your lifestyle, I hope the folks at the ICU gives your ventilator to someone else.

Cryptocurrency and their charts

TIL what it means for a market to be “crabbing at X” over an extended period of time (looking at you Chainlink).

Also, asking the really important question: does technical chart analysis really ever work?

Isn’t it all just theoretically… gambling?

The cheesecake mileage

I like cheesecakes because it takes forever for me to finish a slice.

Pretty sure I’ve eaten this same slice for the third time and there’s still enough left for… uh, another sitting?

Something about talking to long lost friends

I wouldn’t say we’re friends? It does fall under the category of Someone I Used To Know though.

I suppose it’s still a relationship of sorts even if it does feel… a little peculiar. The week’s been a little muddy and I have to say, the universe never fails to surprise me with her aptly-timed quirky gifts.

I’m glad you’re still alive.

Streaming is like a job

I can’t emphasize how much like a real job it feels like given that I’ve rolled out of bed still semi sleep deprived and am currently running on instant coffee.

I even microwaved my milk.

It’s not like I have much options, okay?
