A little late to the party, but I've been feeling singularly unmotivated lately. It's a case of just not having motivation, not any sense of futility or doom. Progress?
I came down with a cold almost two weeks ago. I was mostly over it by the end of the week, although poor sleep (for reasons unknown) was not helpful. Then my brother got married last weekend, which was awesome. Everything went well overall, although my brother broke his foot about a week before the ceremony (he was super drunk, celebrating the end of finals, and doesn't know what he did.) The cane went pretty well with the aesthetic (they got married in the back garden of the Edgar Allen Poe Museum, after all). I was his best man, and i'm still kind of awe-struck at him asking me. I'm not a particularly open or affectionate person, but he's much people-oriented than I am. Little things he's said over the years have made me think that my opinion of him is something he cares about a great deal, and I have a hard time knowing what to do with that. (Granted, that's true of all praise I encounter, but still.)
The downside to the weekend was a couple nights of even less sleep, which meant by Monday I was feeling gross again. I'm still not fully over it, and the holdouts have decided to make their last stand in my lungs. That's usually how it goes; at least I didn't get bronchitis this time. (Ever since I got full-on pneumonia back around late 2009 my lungs have seemed to be the place that germs like the most.)
That's really about it. The three-day weekend will be nice, even if patriotic holidays always make me vaguely uncomfortable. I've gotten my wife hardcore hooked on Stardew Valley, and we've been playing it co-op most nights. She's talking about buying the Android port so she can play it on her Kindle at work. Admittedly I've thought about getting it for iOS or Switch...will likely do the latter because I know if I put it on my iPad, which I take to the office, I would never get anything done.
