  • There was a recent shooting in the town I work in (an ex-navy seal had shell-shock and killed his wife and her kids from a previous relationship). My coworker, who lives in that town, was heartbroken over the kids being scared from that. To show her compassion, I texted her a video of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood where he talks about gun violence.
    Because taking care of my parents has become increasingly time-consuming, and I recently suffered another burnout at work, I've decided I'm going to quit my job and go into sales, as it would have a more flexible schedule. To make myself better at sales, I'm going to get back into a reselling gig I was into years ago.
    Although I was hesitant to do so, I finally told my coworker how I felt about her, and she was completely fine with it. Her fiance (and father of her 2 kids) died last December, and I've been helping her through that ever since. Because of that, working 3 jobs, and dealing her mom's cancer, she doesn't have the ability to love someone else now, which is why I said I'm pursuing other women in the meantime.
    I've been trying to upgrade my debonair type of fashion sense lately, so last night, I decided to take pictures of stylish men off of the web and arrange them on a LibreOffice Draw file. I'll print them out later and bring it to a men's clothing store so an associate can help me find exactly what I want.
    While still on my journey to find a new distro, I was thinking about wanting to try out the Gnome DE, but being that not every distro has it, some DEs are bloated, and I'm using an older computer, I've decided to go with a bare-bones distro and install a WM instead.
    Because my ankle has been in significant pain for the last few days, I went to get it checked out yesterday, and I was diagnosed with a sprain. This isn't the first time it's happened. Thankfully, after taking ibuprofen, and icing and elevating it, I feel a lot better than I did yesterday. I can't go back to work until Tuesday, which is fine, because Ive been meaning to make some drawings anyway.
    While using SMTube last night, I found out the official Power Rangers channel uploaded full episodes of various seasons. I ended up watching the first 3 episodes of Power Rangers Lost Galaxy (man that brings back memories). I was telling my friend Tim its amazing to realize the International Space Station is, in some ways, the real life equivalent to Terra Venture.
    My mom's in the hospital again, but this time because of digestive problems that caused internal bleeding, which in-turn caused her to suffer a serious fall this morning. While both of my parents have had failing health because of their old age and conditions, my mom's worse off than my dad is. All my family can do for her is to maintain her health for the time being. :(

    In order to provide better care for my parents, my brother, dad, and I decided to look into selling the house so they can move into an assistant living facility. I'll have to spend the rest of the year thoroughly learning how to live on my own (as I was never really taught that), get my own place to live, and work my second job full time. I don't mind all of that, because I've been meaning to do so anyway.

    Sorry to hear that about your parents, I hope you figure it getting your parents into assisted living without getting into financial problems yourself. No one learns how to live independently, you learn as you go from experience from the responsibility you get from living independently. You will figure it out :)

    Thanks for reaching out. This is just life lighting a fire under my butt to kick me into gear.
    After talking with @Human about Mark Zuckerberg, that'd be hilarious if there was a spoof movie made about social media and all of the stupid things involved with it. However, being that Hollywood is a crapshoot, both as a culture and as a series of studios, I recommend we make it ourselves.

    As a human myself, I liked your idea and laughing out loudly, fellow human being ;)
    I'm running Mint 20.2 on my Lenovo X200 laptop, and it's gotten relatively slow and buggy at times lately. While the computer's age does play a part, I was trying to figure out what was slowing it down. I know killing certain processes in System Monitor can speed it up, and after killing the SystemD process, its consuming less memory now and feels faster.
    We're getting new flooring in the bathrooms at work, so we have to use port-o-potties for the time being. When I using one earlier tonight, I realized that'd be hilarious if someone made a parody of Doctor Who where their version of the Tardis was a port-o-potty. I can see Family Guy doing that.
    My friend's mom died a year and a half ago, and today would've been her birthday. To make matters worse, he's an orphan because he never met his dad either. To honor her memory, I was talking with him about donating clothing to an orphanage. When I was at work just now, I was asking my coworkers if they have any clothing they'd like to donate, and they either didn't or said they'll check.
    Originally, I wanted to try out Zorin and possibly switch to it afterward, but because it uses SystemD (which I find to be invasive), I want to try Redcore instead

    I actually work with Linux for my job, SystemV was fine but when Systemd came it worked and made things easier. If something else follows I'm happy to work with that but for now I think Systemd will stay for a while.

    After learning more about stable vs rolling releases, I've decided Artix isn't for me because it uses the latter. Devuan is another distro I was interested in checking out though.
    I developed gout in my right knee last night, and ended up going to the ER for it because my mom was going there too for consistent gastro problems. We spent practically all day there because the staff are unbelievably slow, and one of them even gave me a bit of an attitude. I have to recuperate for the next 5 days, which means I'll have to miss work, while my mom has to stay overnight.

    Hope you get better soon. Might be a good excuse to watch sponge bob at worst.

    I haven't done that yet. Because my dad has knee problems as well, I've been trying to find a friend who can come over and complete some chores around the house for us. Once that's taken care of, I'll work on some drawings I've been meaning to catch up on, and finish reading "I Am Spock" by Leonard Nimoy.

    Because I couldn't find a friend to help me, and I've been taking care of my parents through an agency when I'm not at work, I called the agency earlier today and they said they'll find someone to send out. It wouldn't be a bad idea to ask my supervisor if she could have a caregiver come over when I'm at work, and then have me take care of them on my off-days.
    One of my coworkers said she wants me to dogsit for her sometime soon, which is nice, because I've always wanted to take care of people's pets. I will say there are definitely some things I'll need to learn beforehand because I've only worked with cats. Thankfully, two of my other coworkers have cats, so they might hire me to catsit for them.
    My mom's been having various health issues over the years, and now needs to have a stent put in her heart. Once she's finished recuperating, her other health problems (minus her kidneys (she's on dialysis for that)) will begin to diminish. I just wish she explained it to me that way, rather than putting words in the doctor's mouth and making me worried to the point of tears.
