How is your week going ?
  • Got a flat tire, ran out of my prescription due to an issue at the pharmacy, had to deal with a blocked AC drain line that was spilling over into the utility closet, and I burned my hand making dinner last night, so...doing great.

  • Does Marvel Studios get too much publicity these days?
  • We went through a long phase of people being hyped about Marvel, followed by a phase of people shitting on Marvel...now I think we're entering a phase of "people who like it can still like it, people who don't like it can move on to something else."

    It will be interesting to see what comes next in the monoclture now that Marvel doesn't have the same stranglehold on the box office as they used to. Most other studios seem to have already moved on from the "cinematic universe" model with a new tie-in blockbuster every 6 months forever...

  • YSK there is a massive Google Doc of U.S. gynecologists that will tie your tubes without asking about your kids, marital status or age.
  • I got my vasectomy done through Planned Parenthood. I had to go in for a screening first where they asked questions like, "Are you sure you want to do this?" and I said yeah and they said, "Really sure?" and I said yeah, so they said "OK cool, come back in two weeks and we'll snip snip."

    Very easy process, highly recommend.

  • Are you at your lowest, highest or just in between right now?
  • I've been on the low end of average lately. Stressful situation at work for the last couple of months that's hopefully starting to even out. Back in therapy (and on medication for the first time) to manage my ADHD and anxiety. Very thankful for the support network of friends and loved ones that I have.

  • What is your favorite movie theater where you live?
  • An Alamo Drafthouse opened up near us not too long ago. We got the monthly membership where tickets are basically free because all they really want is to sell you food and beer. Been going to movies more often than ever over the last year.

  • How is your week going?
  • Wife started a new job on Monday, so I have had to adjust my sleep schedule in order to drop her off in the morning and getting used to having the house to myself again during the days.

    I was thrust into a new and undesired role at my work a couple months ago, and I'm just now getting to the point where I feel like I have a handle on things. Still not enjoying it and I am looking for other options, but there might be light at the end of the tunnel if I stick it out here...

  • If you could make a different decision in life that you wanted to make, how different do you think your life would be?
  • Do I get to keep all my current knowledge if I go back and change things? If so, I'd go back to May 5th, 2008. That was the day I decided to stop my through-hike of the Appalachian Trail because I thought I needed to go back home and enroll in college courses for the fall.

    In hindsight, college was a huge waste of time that left me depressed and in debt. Thankfully an old Army buddy turned me on to a good job that got my life back on track, but it was a rough few years.

    If I had stayed and finished the hike, I could have started that job years earlier, banked a hefty salary, and be that much closer to an earlier retirement now.
