I got my running in. Saturday went well for the first time in weeks! But today I was plagued by fatigue and back spasms. All-in-all though, not a bad effort. After the run Saturday, I tried to relax a bit; and today it was all about trying to get most of my week set, because I’m going to be really busy. I did not get nearly as much as I planned done. I did get a good start on the most important projects though.
It will be nice to be a bit busier, I think. At the same time I will regret not having a car/living so far from work. That is one of the trade-offs I hope I will be able to rectify by next year. I have a long break in the afternoon tomorrow to, hopefully, finish up the work I didn’t get to today. By the end of the week I should be ahead of the game. I’m focused, things are going well, and with any luck I’m not sick. The sore throat and back spasms all day have me mildly concerned.
So anyway, I’m out there today, and I just couldn’t believe that after all these years I still have to fight the same battles. Then tonight a friend posts a meme of a thread from (maybe) reddit. It expressed how people never really change, that there’s graffiti in Pompeii that translates to things like, “Caecelius was here”, and Michelangelo, da Vinci and others would draw penises in the margins of their notebooks, and even the Hagia Sofia has dumb shit carved in it from vikings and whatnot. It’s true. It seems like progress is very slow, as far as human behavior goes. Which is amazing considering how much the world itself changes. Yet we still act the same, and I think that’s a really big problem.
I would love to delve deeper into this tonight, but as I said, my weekend got away from me and I need to be up crazy-early to get to work tomorrow morning, therefore I must cut this short tonight.
Have fun, keep running, and remember; if Gil can run then so can you!
