Note to self:
None of us are getting out alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought.
Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you're carrying in your heart like a hidden treasure.
Be silly. Be weird. Be kind. There's no time for anything else.
-Nanea Hoffman

Rubber ducking emotions 

Constantly struggling to find a state of mind where I enjoy the struggle of life. Capitalism is tough. Even though my job pays well and I have “great work life balance”... 40 hours a week feels too much. Probably because I have a toddler, but the couple hours of free time I get each week I just don’t have the energy for a hobby that rejuvenates me.

Anybody familiar with Savannah, GA? Wife and I are about to book a summer getaway week for this summer and are planning on just strolling the downtown area, visiting local coffee shops & restaurants, etc.

A possibly related phenomenon is called crown shyness – certain species of trees will very politely avoid overshadowing each other in a forest canopy, leaving gaps between each others' branches.

Mostly trees of the same species will do this, but different species of tree have been observed doing this too.

Again, no one's entirely sure how the trees do this, and some botanists are probably arguing about it somewhere right now.

Today, I decided to take a back road near the school where I used to teach. It's been roughly a decade since I have been on this road. As I was driving by, I saw some deer munching on a bush. Then I caught a flash of white and since there was no one behind me, I stopped the car, still unsure if I saw what I thought I saw. And there it was: an albino deer. I haven't seen once since I was a kid. I snapped a few photos and then just watched it, said a prayer of gratitude, and then drove on.

We have all of the modern conveniences - but something about being a parent makes figuring out how to spend your precious few hours of babysitting so damn hard 🤦‍♂️
