    Finally went to the medic to figure out what the problem is.

    So what happened was:

    First doctor recommended some meds and for me to go through an X-ray.

    I went through the X-ray. The images returned some stuff within my lungs, which is terrifying but the doctor didn't really say anything too scary was going on, at least from my memory.

    I went to another doctor and they asked me to send back the coughed material in a cup so they can figure out the problem. Requirement is that it is early in the morning, after not eating during sleep.

    I got into the inhalation room to wait with 2 other people. I stood there for around 30 minutes until another doctor said it actually wasn't needed.

    (P.S: 'doctor' is vague.)

    I had the opportunity to catch up with a few old classmates from high school whom I hadn't seen much since we graduated. People who I knew when we were in school together, but who were more friends of friends than anyone I directly socialized with at the time. We had a good evening, and I appreciated the chance for some social interaction. It's always interesting to see how much people change in the intervening years.

    It also reminded me that I should let the past be and move forward—appreciating the good and bad times as much as they deserve, but still recognizing that they're gone. Not that I had much history with this group, but I've been clinging to a few other friendships that I've begun to think may not last through the remainder of the lockdown. Several of these people were in my closest friend circle in high school, but seem to have increasingly diverged in interests, habits, and values from me (the third being the most concerning). It's painful to grow distant from people I love, or used to love—we've known each other for essentially our entire lives—but over time our bonding experiences have turned into something approaching drug abuse on their parts, and I question the compatibility of some of our evolving worldviews. Our get-togethers since graduation have had a few misogynistic undertones, and they have something of an inability to handle conflict maturely or take responsibility for things. It's tough to see the guys I was so close to growing up live their lives like this. C'est la vie. Relics of the past, I suppose. I'll be here for them, but I'm not getting my expectations up.

    My son graduated college in May, and moved away to start his job, last weekend. We're sort of on personal lockdown here, and I was worried it might be completely barren this weekend. I:

    • Power washed the house trim
    • Went for a long swim
    • Cooked a new dish: Vegan tacos with tofu crumbles
    • Went through a bunch or tutorials on FreeCAD and printed my first design: an eyeglasses case
    • Had a long phone call with my brother

    So it wasn't so bad.
