    Niece used the last of the toilet paper downstairs and I didn't notice until I went to reach for it and there was nothing left but a cardboard tube.

    I may not be the easiest human to live with, but I will say this: I always make sure there's toilet paper available. I do sometimes leave one or two squares on because it's not enough on its own if the TP's thin, but I balance another roll on top for the next person so they can add it to sheets from the next roll and not just waste it. I guess that drives people nuts too, but at least they're not left with nothing to clean themselves with.

    Oh man I’m looking forward to sleep. Like, a real solid 8hrs kind of sleep. I’d settle for 5 or 6 but let’s just aim high.

    Hill repeats today. I really only have to increase 4km on the long run these next two months so if I stick to increasing 1km a week then I have a month to work on pace, form and to double down on strength work and maybe aim for a 2hr finish time.

    Once I’ve done the half marathon I want to start incorporating swimming and cycling. Maybe do a triathlon at the end of summer. That could be fun.

    i've been trying to fight off the dank depression of being asked about my dad's 'relationship' with all of us by the lawyer. had to comb through all the old emails and read all my old status reports to my cousin and sister, and most of all try to articulate things i haven't thought of for years or decades.

    for some reason it's really getting to me telling this guy about my dad and brother. i don't have any time for my brother, but none of this conversation has been about what i think. it's about my dad; and that hurts. my dad loved him and if i weren't so frosty about the guy he would have got to see more of him.

    i don't hate myself. i'm just sad.

    either appeals. instead, i bought myself 9 pounds of pork loin (it was there) and now i have the 11-pm task of slicing and freezing it all in individual portions. it must be a long weekend. i only ever impose this kind of perversity on myself at those times.

    From what I've observed these last couple days, about 85% of parenting must be mess management. And I suddenly see why my mother didn't make us clean up more of our own messes. Sometimes it's easier than having the 53rd conversation this hour about what needs to be picked up/washed/thrown away.

    Also, children's television is horrible. Adults and children alike speak in a high-pitched voice. The YouTube videos made by children are particularly creepy. They often don't appear to be by kids who are really into what they're doing or really into video-making. Or some of that is present, but it's really apparent that everything's been set up for them and they've likely been directed to act in a certain way, all aimed at making money. Which is fantastic if all of it is going into their college funds, but the cynic in me suspects not much of it does. And the commercials on TV are just...non-stop. No wonder my niece wants to buy everything at the store, that's what TV makes it seem like you do when you're there because there's always some new thing to find while you're there. It was like that when I was growing up too, but it's gross watching it play out as an adult.

    I'm not anti-monetization or anything, but it's just wrong to prey on children.

    Meh, maybe I'm just getting old.

    I've been very introspective lately, delving into philosophy and such - not really looking for a meaning (there seems to be somewhat of a consensus) but rather different perspectives on life based on the shared conclusion. I tend to become nihilistic when I'm depressed. Learning and contemplation sometimes makes me feel better.

    While I was reading around, I found something called "existential depression." When I read the symptoms, I kinda chuckled. I believe I've suffered from this oh most of my life

    • An intense or obsessive interest in the bigger meaning of life and death. The interest in exploring this may override a person’s enjoyment and engagement with other day-to-day activities.
    • Extreme distress, anxiety, and sadness about the society they live in, or the overall state of the world.
    • A belief that changes in anything are both impossible and futile.
    • Increasingly becoming, and feeling, disconnected, isolated, and separate from other people.
    • Cutting ties with other people because they feel like connections with others are meaningless or shallow and they are on a completely different level.
    • Low motivation and energy levels to do anything they would normally do.
    • Questioning the purpose, point or meaning of anything, and everything, in life.


    Are there people who go through life without this on their mind?! What a privileged existence.

    I get it. I haven't spoken with my father for 25+ years and the last time I saw my mother was briefly, about two years ago, at my Aunt and Uncle's 50-year anniversary party. The last time before that was at my last grandparent's funeral (my mother's mother). People often ask me why I want nothing to do with them; they weren't ever there for me growing up and haven't been there for me as an adult... I've made the attempt(s) several times only to be ignored afterwards, so why bother? I've got a daughter and two grandsons that I get to see every couple of weeks (they live in a different city), and I enjoy that very much. I have a younger sister that I communicate with online almost every day, but we live three time zones apart so there's that.

    Soooo.... I try to otherwise keep busy with stuff outside of work, despite the fact that my social life sucks and everyone I end up going out with end up being losers and I'm like... nope. I was actually kind of serious about painting rocks. It's a "thing" in my area right now and would give me something to do outside of the house and not have to interact with 200 of my closest friends.

    I'd rather waste the couple of squares and make sure the next person had a fresh roll. A roll on top of an empty tube or a tube that's nearly empty like that drives me bananas.

    I've also done the reverse, with the new paper on the holder and the old roll on top, but either way people don't seem to like it. I guess I just need to let go of the idea that people are as upset about waste as I am (and of course, like anyone else I'm somewhat inconsistent about what I'm willing to waste, but even when I go forward with it it still bothers me).
