I’m walking on the treadmill in my new house and my sweetie is working out beside me. He subscribes to amazon music or maybe you get that with A Prime membership and he downloads new stuff and makes these workout playlists. It’s usually turns out pretty good and i get to hear something different than the tunes I’m always spinning from my own playlists. Right now it’s Weezer, “I’m just being honest”.
New stuff from Weezer?! Who knew?!
Yesterday was a good day. We did everything we wanted and nothing we didn’t. It feels good to let go of my constant worry over time and just waste a little bit on things that are inconsequential. I mean, seriously, what’s the point of working hard on stuff all the time if there’s no relief, no balance at some point?
There are an endless number of things on life’s list of “things to do” and if we never do the thing we want to do then we’re doing it wrong. So yeah, I have work to do today and another deadline that will have been missed if I don’t spend a few hours (on a Sunday) finishing the SQL and cranking out a new cut of the export file. But chances are very good that I’m gonna say “fuck it”, and jump in the car to head west and see if we can catch some glimpse of the great Nebraska Sandhill Crane Migration.
Maybe we’ll get to see something super cool and maybe we won’t, but it sure as hell sounds way more enticing than beating my head about trying to figure out the best way to pull in SDFs from tables without effing up something else in the process. Yeah, going on a mini road trip to try to get a glimpse of one of the most bad-ass natural phenomenon in the United States sounds like a much better use of our time today. It is Sunday after all which is supposed to be a weekend day. If we do get to see something awesome, I’ll be sure and write more about it tomorrow.
Anyway, that’s it for today because I gotta get on with doing all the things I want to do and nothing I don’t. Here’s the rest of today’s playlist of new music in case you’re interested (pretty good so far)…
