    I have a similar rule too. I love Megadeth, but Mustaine, while an asshole, doesn't say anything over the top. I wouldn't be surprised too if he suddenly starts saying homophobic shit, but i hope not.

    I had to stop listening to two bands that i loved. Mgla (i threw my shirt away), because i found out they are Nazis and Incantation, because he is a pedophile.

    When I'm going somewhere and it's 30 minutes or more walking, i love it because it gives me time to listen to an entire album.

    Having the time to listen to music is getting rare, specially because i moved away and don't have good speakers now. I plan on buying some soon, but headphones is the only way i can listen to high quality music right now.

    I'm going to my boardgames group meeting right now, it's 30 minutes away and it's the time i have to listen to music.

    Here it goes:

    • 5:30~6:30 - wake up when the sun shines in the room, no alarm
    • 7:00 - light snack and gym
    • 9:00 - heavy breakfast and shower
    • 10:45 - walk to work
    • 11:00 to 17:00 - work (20 minutes lunch when it feels like)
    • 17:15 - arrive at home, eat dinner when hungry and am free until sleep
    • 21:00~22:00 - sleep

    Yes, i‘m very blessed to work only 6 hours, wake up naturally and live near work.
    Unfortunately, this will end in February and we will start working 8 hours with 1 hour lunch break. Everyone is pissed.

  6. When it's time to put your dog down?

    She is a mixed breed (more pinscher) and is perhaps 16 or 17 years old.

    She simply doesn't eat anymore. She went to the vet when this started and they found nothing. Gave her some appetite injection, she would eat for two days and stop. Went again and same thing.

    I changed vets and he did blood work and everything was fine. He examined her throat with his hands because he didn't want to anesthetize a senior dog for a scan. He discovered a throat and ear infection. Treated and she started eating again, but only for a few weeks. She never gained her weight back.

    Now she is only losing weight and not eating, it's been five days since she last eat something.

    She sleeps almost all the time and is so thin and her back is so curved that when she drops her head to drink water her rear legs go up and she falls. We had to put the food and water up so she doesn't have any accidents.

    She is so frail it's breaking my heart. I'm so afraid.

    I will be moving for work in January so i will be without a gym for one or two months. When settled I'm gonna look around.

    I want to find a gym with classes now. I'm getting tired of just lifting weights and i need to up my cardio. Maybe those classes with stationary bikes would be cool, plus it has the social factor as an upside since this is a new city for me.

    I can splurge more on gym memberships after moving because i will start cooking my own food and hopefully will save a lot of money.

    The best habit of 2019 is keeping going to the gym. I didn't build any new habit really. I started journaling (just txt files on my laptop) recently, i plan on keep doing it.

    For 2020 i plan to break a habit: alcohol
    I binge drink too much. I am able to keep it to one day per week, but even that is too much. It's now part of a plan for me and my SO. She needs to cut sweets/soda/sugar/bad food and i need to cut alcohol for the sake of our health and relationship.

    I don't backup anything now. Only the most important files (encrypted files with passwords).

    I use custom directories.

    ~/data is my HDD with the bulk of what i have
    ~/data/personal with personal files like paychecks, journal, etc
    ~/data/media/{music,videos,pictures,books,other}
    ~/download/{torrent,soulseek}
    ~/bin with my custom programs and scripts
    ~/dev for programming projects

    Everything is lowercase. My music is organized in ~/data/media/music/artist/year - album folders.

    If i knew it was going to be like this i would have made other friends and not started drinking when i was a teen. Fitting in was overrated and now i'm paying the price.

    Women on instagram that are there to just show their bodies. You see a lot of them on boats, hotels, parties, working out. They often put their e-mail on the profile.

    I bet I could get in a decent 6 exercise full body under 30 minutes.

    I try, but if you are lifting heavy it's taxing.

    I do 3 supersets in 50 minutes give or take.

    Today was:

    • Bench ss Lat Pulldown (90s seconds rest between exercises)
    • OHP ss Rows (60 seconds rest between exercises)
    • Dips ss Curls (45 seconds between exercises)

    It took some time because bench was 7 sets today, but i managed to finish in 50 minutes. Squat days are a little harder, but can be done if you stick to the rest times.
