Hello friends,
in today's 15 minute day recap:
Had to wake up early to get to our morning lab meeting, which was pushed a day earlier, for "reasons". Unfortunately, I had to get Teh Cute Girlfriend to give me a ride (she's never happy in the mornings :) My PI liked the plots I made, with UGRA (Undergrad research associate). So  that was pretty nice. Afterwards, me and Tech. Assoc. hung out for a bit and talked about the adaptation experiment. I  then went over to the office to see what UGRA was working on and we talked about the directions she could take with her to be assigned project.

After the workday, me and Tech Assoc. went out to check out Applied Aseudio here in Rochester (technically Henrietta, but I won't hold that against it :) Then hit up Tim Horton's for some Tim Bits! (I heart Tim Bits). When we got to his place, we decided to go play some tennis it was fun to run around with him, we hadn't hung out on the court in a bit. Oh, I definitely ate it on the court, with the very first ball. I chased it and slipped (the floor of the court was gross, kinda oily feeling) and fell on my belly and slid like a good two feet. It was pretty great (well, my knee wasn't happy, but who cares about that guy). Then I was dropped off at home.

Teh Cute Girlfriend and I then went to go pick up ugra (i'll come up with a better nickname later). Her and I planned on a viewing/listening party (she's surprisingly uninformed about cool stuff). We first went to Wal-mart, so that she could buy a racket and teh cute girlfriend could look at sewing stuffs. We ended up buying potato salad. Afterwards, we went to Joann's Fabric shop, so that teh cute girlfriend could look for filler material.

When we got home, we ate some potato salad sandwiches and I settled on watching a Miyazaki movie. We watched Princess Mononoke (cause it's probably the most mainstream one). After that, we caught like 3 episodes of Bojack Horseman. After that, it was time to take her home.

Then bed. Woot! Just under the timing wire!

in a bind

Alright folks, here's my day in 15 minutes or less!

Woke up nice and early, so I got to make breakfast and drink coffee. It's not always that I have coffee. Those are the sad days. Let's see, at work, I smushed two plots together to make them make sense. I'm not terribly sure that I can do that, but I'll ask tomorrow. The plots turned out pretty well :) Of course, after I set up the plots, I brought over our Lab's undergrad and had her plot the rest of the plots. I then showed her how to do a t-test with Kaleidagraph, the most garbage program ever.

Oh on the bus ride to school, I plopped a poke-man into a gym, which was cool, 'cause I hadn't tried the new gyms since they changed them. I think I like them a lot better, plus, there's forced diversity, which is super-cool.:) I have yet to participate in a raid, but I'm sure it'll happen.

At work, I found the transparencies that I prepared for screen-printing (I couldn't find them on Saturday when I went in) So I thought that I might screen-print today, but I'm scared and it's too cloudy (I'm thinking of using the sun for the photo-emulsion) It's supposed to be cloudy for a while.

Let's see, Ethereum dropped by a lot today, so Tech. Assoc. was slightly upset and trying to talk himself up.

For the evening, I had a Book safe making class (@Roc Brainery) with Just Terrific! Just Terrific is a local crafter who makes book-related items. I own one of her tiny book pins and now I own a kick-butt book safe. Although, I couldn't finish at the class (I don't know how so many people managed to complete theirs in time) I ended up taking my book home and  a small paper cup of Mod Podge to finish making the safe (It fits my book!)

I'm also jealous that Teh Cute Girlfriend went to go see My Neighbor Totoro on the big screen! It's been sooo long since I've seen any Miyazaki film. I need to correct that.

and just like that my time is up. Seems like I can use up 15 minutes!

frfnr is dead

Okay, it actually isn't dead. I'm just stealing some YouTuber's style. (Nathan Zed tbh). I know, some 35 yo learning from a young adult. I say, learn from everyone you can :)

So, I'm altering the format a little bit. It'll still be a daily blog. (Yes, I know I haven't posted in a while, and now all my posts are deleted, but I'm always a fan of wiping the slate clean) I'm thinking about setting aside 15-minutes everyday to write this thing. That way, I won't be overburdened by having to write soooo much (not that I ever did). I'll write until my 15-minutes are up, or if I finish before then, I'll do that instead, so a guaranteed 15-minutes or less of content, exciting!

So on to day 1 (15-minutes start here):

Let's see, woke up a little late. around 10 am, but that isn't too bad, considering that I went to bed at around 5-6 am. I almost woke up at 7 am, but that didn't hold. After breaking myself away from Teh Cute Girlfriend, I went to make Sunday morning waffles! I totally forgot that we didn't have any syrup though :( After breakfast, we got dressed and went off to Greece Canal Park. We had never been there, and teh cute girlfriend wanted to go somewhere new. It was a cute little park. We parked near the little events building, and it looked to me like there weren't any trails, but I was wrong, like most times. So we went walking through the little path we found. Oh, I saw a snek. It was tiny and brown and cute. Speaking of cute, there were so many cute doggos!!!!! I want access to a cute doge, but I don't want to own one, so that I don't need to take care of it.
Let's see, we found a tiny pond, and a dying dragonfly, it was so pretty. We made our way to the eponymous Erie Canal and hung out by the side of it for a bit before returning back.

Back at home, I somehow managed to not take a nap (coffee helped). I spent a lot of time trying to get my mini-laptop to be like it used to be before I wiped it. (Malware, accidentally downloaded "an extension"). Oh, and we made Wonder Woman themed cookies! They were sugar-cookies, so I loved them of course. I ran ethereum mining on my main comp while I played with my mini-laptop.

Alright, I've got one-minute left, hopefully this won't take 15 minutes to read :) I find myself with 15 minutes of time available all the time, so I should be able to stick to the
