Married, gay American-Australian guy living in rural Victoria. I'm creative, kind, hopeful, and sometimes a tiny bit weird. (And you know what? That's okay!)

Retail therapy. One of my absolute favourite games in the whole fucking world, redone on Switch.

My sister's house flooded again though. They just got it fixed from the last time it flooded about 2 years ago. They're still paying for the repairs and this happens. I will probably get her some furniture for a room or two for Christmas. The exchange rate is shit now though. :(

I couldn't get in contact with my mom, but my siblings finally were able to which helped me sleep a little bit last night. I joke around that I'm so glad I don't have to deal with tropical storms anymore living in southern Australia but I'm kind of thankful. Now, if I could just convince all my family to move here, that would be absolutely fantastic. (Won't happen...)

Well my hometown is being flooded as I type this. Haven’t heard anything from my mom. It’s one of those situations where I wished I didn’t live on the other side of the world.

Less than 2 more months until I'm off to 🇺🇸. I'm not a fan of the politics of my home country but I am a fan of that time of the year, and being with my family. ;)

I'm waiting to have a new mattress delivered today. I'm hoping that it will help me sleep. One of the nice bonuses is that it comes with a sleep monitor. Statistics. Love 'em.

I’m feeling a little bummed out today. I’m just going to sleep a bit early I think.

Today's R U OK Day. The signs that someone is struggling aren't always obvious. In fact, about 2/3 of people in Australia aren't confident that they know the signs that someone is struggling with life's ups and downs. If you know what to look for, you can feel more confident in starting a conversation with someone to ask them if they're okay. ruok.org.au/signs

I really hate having to go to meetings on my day off... 🤬

I should have warned myself that buying a smart watch wasn't going to actually make me exercise more. Well, I did - but now I just get nagged more for being lazy. (The only ring I close almost every day is the stand up for a minute ring. lolz)

These flowers are so pretty, but they're misery-inducing for me. :( It's a US-Benadryl, stay inside kind of day for me.

I’m working five days this week. I need a trophy for that. (Stressful career choice. I need a lot of self care even working 2-3 days per week on average.)

I feel like crap this am. Almost every night, I am dreaming about not being able to breathe very well and can’t wake myself up.

I gotta admit, I like the new Sidecar feature of macOS 10.15. It's quite handy having my database software open on a slightly smaller, separate screen.

I ordered some watch bands last week and they were supposed to be delivered today. Australia Post doesn't like to deliver anything heavier than a sheet of paper, I guess. So many times I've had to go to the post office to pick up stuff because they can't be bothered to deliver. 😒

I'm so over winter. My house (a rental) must be insulated with bubble wrap or something. My body is freezing except where the heater is blowing on me. I don't know why the cold and heat are so unreasonable in Australia compared to Texas. (I still super love you Australia! 💖

@zensaiyuki I'm so sorry to hear that. :( That's terrible.

I feel like the older I get, the shorter my days are. I don't really like it. There's not enough time in the day to do all the little silly things I want to do. ;)
