Altered my methods so that I could work on blog posts in the morning and personal journaling throughout the remainder of the day. Finally got Joplin synced between my laptop and phone via Webdev. Set a deadline of one post every week, preferably on Sundays. No excuses. Let's do this ish.

Procrastination is a real problem we need to talk about... later.

Fun fact: I can never play "Scream" by the Misfits without hitting repeat at least eleventy times.

Is The Nightmare Before Christmas a Halloween movie or a Christmas movie?

I was making a list of movies to watch for Halloween when I hit this dilemma. No taking the east way out with "both".

It looks as if it's time to find a new podcast app on Android since Pocket Casts has gone with a freemium/subscription model even though I previously purchased the app. They may think that 3 years of service is generous, but it's not when I already paid once for lifetime service.

Someone in my neighborhood is getting a head start on the Spooky Season pranks. I wonder what else we'll find in our back yard.

TIL if I have some things I need to get done around the house, give me a four-day weekend and on the fourth day, I might get off my ass and get moving.

Have I finally found the ideal layout for my desk? Probably not, but it's nice to dream.

Upgrading to a Raspberry PI 4 has reminded me just how much faster USB 3.0 is than USB 2.0.
