    what do you

    Sit in the recliner. Turn down the air. Pull up a blanket. And turn on youtube. Then find some kind of ambient music and zone out. Actually another thing that works for me is a live video of a train station in Tokyo. I found that train sound soothing. During covid's peak, to relax I would...

    going on a road trip

    I love road trips. I try to bring healthy snacks like carrots and fruits. But I always end up with some kind of hostess snack cakes from the gas station.

    Anyone into jazz, classical music, flamenco, or something similar?

    Yeah I like jazz, bossa nova, classical. I like to go down youtube rabbit holes and then it starts suggesting things. I found I also like other things like chillwave, ambient, and space music.

    Anyone play guitar?

    I took some classes, and I am very bad. I do want to attempt classical someday.

    Reaching out. Looking ahead.

    Similar age. Sort of similar story here. A couple of life events set me back a lot. And I found it near impossible to start over and meet new people the old way I used to do things. I am still friends with my ex even though that separation caused me a lot of problems. But she is one of the...

    I am new and looking for folks to talk to

    I have a similar experience. 2 decades ago I moved a few hours away from home for a job. And over time I lost contact with a lot of people that I thought I had strong connections with. My family didn't keep up with me with the exception of mom. I had to do the visiting if it was to occur...

    What Animal Do You Wish You Could Have as a Pet?

    Bobcat. Let him/her out when neighbors want to walk their dogs in my yard. I am a cat person by the way.

    Check up

    I am friends with one ex. She has pulled me out of some jams, and she has helped me through some health issues. No romantic feelings. We grew apart. I don't hope for another chance. I do hope she finds happiness again. And truth be told I used to live a really isolated life after we split...

    What are you reading.

    I read a lot of factual text from short articles. As a kid I would flip through the almanac and encyclopedia for fun. Unfortunately my memory isn't so great, so it doesn't always stick. As expected, the internet is my downfall. I go down so many rabbit holes. I used to be into HP Lovecraft...

    Has Covid made being lonely, easier?

    For me it was mixed. At first, I thought isolation would not be so bad, because at the time I was already living a fairly isolated life. And I was delighted to be forced into remote work. I would not have to see my boss or the loud co-worker in person. That was a fantastic bonus. I grew to...

    Goals for 2022

    Fix unsettled life. Find new job. Pursue hobbies. Reunite with old friends. I feel like Baron Munchausen searching for his old magical friends to go on one more quest. Live life. Pursue happiness. I haven't done that in a very, very long time.

    Predictions for 2022

    I like mild cheese. Smoked Gouda is one of my favs. Y'all can have the smelly ones.

    what was the last movie you saw?

    The fourth Matrix movie. Spent a lot of money ($5 for bottle water!!), and it was pretty bad. On the flip side I was hanging with a childhood friend that I don't see very often, so that was nice. Back to Youtube and the Roku channel for me.

    Curious cat

    I eat brown rice. But I don't eat rice very often. Brown rice is less refined, so it's supposed to be better for your blood sugar.

    What is your weather like right now?

    62F in this part of Tx. Up and down here. Cold a few days and warm a few. Well... cold to me is the 40s.
